The Texas Tea slot game is made by IGT - the company behind WagerWorks casinos. IGT publish the house edge of their slots games with the paytable, however if the game has a range of possible settings, this figure is usually only given only as a range. Check with the casino you are playing at to find out if they give the exact value or range of possible values. The house edge of Texas Tea is between 2.65% and 5.65%. Unless you are playing at a casino that explicitly states the house edge they are using it would be wise to assume you are playing against a 5.65% edge..
Based – as the name would suggest – in Texas, this game is themed on the oil developers of past eras. This is a 5 reel game with 9 paylines game and allows you to bet up to 5 coins on each payline.
There are two different bonus rounds in this game. The first in the ‘Big Oil Bonus’. To activate this you need to get three or more Oil Rig Symbols in a row, starting from the left on any payline. When this happens you’ll be taken to a map of the US divided into 8 sections where you’ll be able to place between 3 and 5 oil rigs. Each section of the map hides an unknown number of coins as a prize – the more rigs you got to activate the bonus round the larger the prizes - and once you’ve placed all your rigs, the total is added up and awarded to you.
The second bonus round is a more simple affair. Simply get 3 or more of the ‘Texas Ted’ symbols appearing anywhere on the reels and you’ll activate the ‘Oil Dividend’ bonus feature. Texas Ted writes you a cheque for going into business with him, the more Texas Ted symbols appear the higher the cheque will be.
With good bonus features and general gameplay, as long as you're careful where you choose to play, Texas Tea is a great choice.
