Texas Tea Theme and Symbols
The theme of the Texas Tea online slot game boasts the rich lives of the Texas oil field owners and all things Texan. The graphics portray the theme in a cartoon like way which has an old school element. The background shows an oil tycoon with an armadillo and a Texas longhorn side by side. The symbols that adorn the reels show images of Texan flowers like the yellow rose, bluebonnet and globe mallow, there is also a Cadillac, an oil tower, longhorn cattle, cacti and armadillos amongst others. The Texas Tea logo symbol is the highest valued symbol which pays out the biggest jackpot prize of 10 000 coins when it appears five times on an enabled pay line. There are no wild symbols in this online slot game but both the Texas Ted and oil Derrick symbols act as scatter symbols that trigger corresponding bonus features.
Oil Dividend Cheque Bonus Feature
When three or more of the Texas Ted symbols land on any position on the reels the Texas Tea oil dividend cheque bonus round is activated. The bonus game consists of entering Texas Ted’s office where he writes a cheque for oil dividends. There is no actual game play during this bonus, the only function is to collect the cheque and the award given is the amount written on the cheque multiplied by the bet. The cheque amount is determined by the number of Texas Ted symbols that landed and activated the game.
The Big Oil Derrick Bonus Game
Landing three or more of the oil Derrick symbols adjacent on an enabled pay line activates the Texas Tea big oil Derrick bonus game. As the bonus game is activated the screen animatedly shakes and rumbles while oil fountains gush over the screen. The screen will then display the American state of Texas divided into eight sections. The aim is to pump oil from certain regions of Texas by selecting the same number of sections as the number of symbols that activated the game. Once the selection is final, oil will begin to flow sporadically from each section on and off while points are earned as the oil flows. The oil flows automatically and can stop at any moment. The amount awarded are multiples of the pay line bet and Texas Ted animatedly celebrates the oil Derrick rewards when they are awarded, with excited animations.
