Who doesn’t want to strike it rich? Get digging those oil wells and watch them spurt pure black gold in the Oil Mania slot.
Although less about prospecting and more about building your own oil empire, this nifty little mobile slot from NextGen Gaming was far more fun to play than expected.
That’s probably because the sounds took us back to a turn of the century ho-down and we hit the UpWild bonus feature very quickly, and then re-triggered it for our troubles. It certainly made us sit up and pay attention.
However, once the small thrill passed, we quickly realised this is just a re-skinned version of Hot Hot Volcano, a mobile slot that we simply do not rate.
Oil Mania soon showed it’s true colours as we quickly turned on auto-play and let the game run a while without seeing any more action.
It’s certainly not one of the best NextGen slots, so if you’re after a game with the same sort of theme then you’re better off checking out our Elk Studios Black River Gold slot review.

Unfortunately Oil Mania only has one in-play bonus feature.
UpWild Feature: Land any one or more Oil Tycoon symbols on reel 2, 3 or 4 and and a Wild Oil Gush appears to grow from the bottom upwards, each time adding a new wild and generating a free spin. This totals a not very exciting 3 free spins. If however, during the free spins, another oil tycoon appears on another reel, this will reset the upwild feature under that Tycoon. So you could potentially get more free spins, but this is the exception rather than the rule.
Oil Mania is a simple mobile slot with limited features. It's nice sounds and graphics will entertain for the short term, but might lose your attention in the long run. A recommended mobile slot for short journeys rather than the sofa.
