The Oily Business game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go are a growing provider in the industry and have a rapidly expanding portfolio of both slots games and clients. They do offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Play ‘n Go do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such we know that the house edge for Oily Business is 3.8%.
The Oily Business game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 5 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Oil Rig”.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Oil Tanker”.
Wild – If you reveal 3 or more of the Wild “Oil Rig” symbols you will trigger the game’s Wild bonus. Once you have done so you will need to choose which area you want to drill for oil in and then you will need to choose which rig you want to use. There are 5 rigs to choose from with one of them offering up to 25 bonus spins and up to 5 additional Wild symbols. Free spins can be re-triggered up to a maximum of 200 times. You cannot change the size of your bet during the free bonus spins.
Scatter – If you reveal 3 or more of the Scatter “Oil Tanker” symbols your win will be multiplied. 3 will multiply the win by 5, 4 by 25 and 5 by 75.
Gamble – Winning lines can be gambled to gain an increased win. When you win you have the option to keep the win, try to double your win or try to treble it. If you want to double your win, you have to choose from 4 tiles. Two will win and two will lose you your bet. If you want to treble your win you need to choose between 3 tiles. One will win and two will lose you your bet. You can continue to double or treble your bet up to ten times in succession.
Golden Ring Jackpot – If you reveal 3 or more golden rings circling symbols across the reels then you trigger the game’s jackpot. 3 rings will trigger the “Tasty Jackpot” on the bronze wheel and a chance to win up to 15 times your bet. 4 rings will randomly trigger either the “Tasty Jackpot” or the “Luxury Jackpot” and a chance to win up to 60 times your bet on the silver wheel. 5 rings will randomly trigger either the “Luxury Jackpot” or the “Dream Chance Jackpot” and a chance to win up to 300 times your bet.
Oily Business has a very similar look and feel to few other Play ‘n Go games. Along with “Monster Smash” and “Spin & Win”, this game has a “Gamble” and a “Golden Ring Jackpot” feature. These two bonuses are identical throughout all 3 games and to be honest, they are probably the least interesting bonuses that all the games have to offer. The “Gamble” feature is far too risky to be worthwhile and the “Golden Ring Jackpot” feature seems to happen so rarely that you forget it is even there. However, the game does look good and it is a theme I’ve not seen before. I like the free spin bonus but feel that it is a bit of a stretch to refer to the basic multiplier that the Scatter symbols bring as a bonus or a feature. The Edge is OK, but nowhere near as good value for money as the other two games I’ve mentioned, which means I’d recommend you play those before this.
