Video slot released by IGT in 2005
Texas Tea is an absolute classic and very popular game from IGT. This is a simple five reel, 15-line video slot with an oil discovery theme, but the beauty is the way it is so cartoony and the nice little touches surrounding both normal slot play and also the different bonus rounds where you must look for oil.
Even though Texas Tea is now a very old slot and some of the machines have faded screens, it is still very popular and just about every casino we have been to in the last few years still has this game.
As far as gameplay goes, the set-up is simple and straight-forward, which is perhaps the most appealing thing about the game - the simplicity and attention to detail that makes it playable. There are no stacked wilds or free spin bonus rounds that you will see in many of the more recent productions from IGT, the bonus rounds, however, are excellent and highly innovative
What makes this game truly great are the really nice cartoon sequences and features, with Ted and his pet armadillo joining in with celebrating any big wins you accumulate. Watch the armadillo jump around the screen looking at the reels spin when you press the button
The main bonus round sees Texas Ted searching for oil in Texas. Once you trigger the bonus, the machine begins to shake as the oil begins to build up pressure, which means there is a gusher on its way. Oil then pours down the screen and fills the entire play area prior to you being transferred to the game itself
Depending how many bonus simples you got lined up when you triggered the bonus, you get to pick out either 3, 4 or 5 derricks. Once you picked out your areas on the map to explore, the pumping begins. Each derrick in turn, pumps oil out which then become bonus points and real cash prizes. The more you pump, the more you win. Once all your well have been pumped dry, this is the end of the round and you take your money and go back to regular play
The other bonus feature, sees you winning a dividend check that gets transferred directly to your bank account. The size of the check can vary dramatically and you get to see the owner of the company writing the check out for you and sail it through the air for you to receive. A very simple, but well-executed scene. If you win a decent prize at this stage, you will see Ted do a little dance in celebration, which is always worth seeing.
Overall, even after many years, this is still one of the nicest slots on the market and remains very popular, even in light of new, video game-style slots that can be found.It is very similar in that respect to games like the lobstermania lobster game, money storm slots and some of the older 5 reel versions of monopoly slots
This is one where you can sit back, relax and enjoy it's simplicity and beauty.
