About the Game

The game is centred around finding a resource precious and essential to humankind Oil! Despite the potentially grave subject, the game delivers a great game with good graphics and decent bonuses. 
The symbols in the game are related to the oil mining industry. The higher values include: oil workers clad in green, a car of gold, a suitcase which carries more cash than it can manage, and a forecast of profits. The lower value symbols include the general playing cards: 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. 
The game also spots an excellent Scatter round, more details below. 
SCATTER
There is no Wild symbol in the base game in this online casino slots. Instead, there is a bonus symbol: the Oil Tycoon. This is essentially the Scatter in the game. It is quite a visual delight to see it grow and take over entire reels! 
The Oil Tycoon only makes its appearance on selective reels: Reel 2, Reel 3, and Reel 4. When it does land on these reels, it launches a mini bonus game. When the Oil Tycoon lands on a reel, the bottom symbol will be converted to a Wild. 
At that moment, you will be rewarded with 3 Free Spins. As the spins progress, the Oil Well will grow. This will continue till the reel in its entirety is absolutely Wild! 
And that is not all! If you are fortunate enough to land another yet another Scatter during the Free Spins Round, you will receive another 3 Free Spins. Yes, they are cumulative! And with the 3 new Free Spins comes another growing Wild reel! 
GAMBLE 
If you are not ready to end your winning streak just yet, the online slots game also offers a gamble feature on which you can tap on. All you’ll have to do is guess either the colour or the suit of the upcoming card. With every correct guess, your winning is doubled! You can go up to 5 guesses in a row. But do bear in mind, a single wrong guess and you can bid adieu to your winnings. 

Verdict

This online slots game is fun and current. It has taken a serious political issue and turned it into an innocuous slots game. There are undertones and resemblances that one can draw between the concept of digging for oil and rolling the reels which is a nice touch. The game offers a great Scatter and Free Spins round, good visuals, and it is overall entertaining.
