Well Butter my Biscuit! If it isn’t the Texas Tea mobile slot! Never heard of it? Yeah, don’t blame you.
We are pretty sure IGT meant well when they decided to release their IGT classic video slot Texas Tea. And we mean classic as in ‘another way of saying old’ rather than as 3 reel game.
This is, without a doubt, a casino game filled with slightly cheesy, cartoonish, deep south stereotypes. It’s all done in a tongue in cheek way, and is fairly harmless.
Fans of the biggest state in the US will like the small details; the chirpy armadillo pet, the Texas yellow rose, the Texas Ted tycoon, or the oil that made this state so famous.
That said, the transfer from Las Vegas casino to mobile slot hasn’t been kind to Texas Tea. The graphics look dated, and sounds that feel very ‘1980s Dallas TV show’.
It’s as cheesy as the She’s a Rich Girl slot by the same provider.
Which you’d think would be a good thing right? The reason why you get lots of wins is because the top 4 highest paying symbols pay out on 2 of a kind, instead of 3 of a kind.
So yeah, sure, you get wins every 2 or 3 spins, but nothing that’s interesting, or worthwhile. You need a minimum of a 5 of a kind win for that to happen.
The good news is that, with two bonus features that hit frequently you don’t lose much and you can play for a heck of a long time. But even the top wins in the two click me bonus features are 11 times your bet in the Oil Dividend Bonus and 105 times in the Big Oil Bonus.
Let’s put it this way; you won’t become a Tycoon any time soon.
If you want a light and fun IGT slot game that won’t destroy your wallet and low bet amount, you are better of enjoying the cute Balloonies slot. If you want to bet a little more aggressively, you should also check out the Sushi Yum Yum Extra Wasabi slot game.

Oil Dividend Bonus: Get the Texas Tea character (the old man in the moustache) scattered anywhere on the reels to trigger an instant cash bonus.
Big Oil Bonus: Get the oil rig symbol on a payline and you'll trigger a second screen bonus where you'll be asked to place oil derricks across the state of Texas.
How much you win depends on how many symbols triggered the bonus:
This is such an old fashioned game, the only people who could love it are those who are after a little nostalgia. Maybe the Texas Team slot was the first game you ever played in Vegas?
Maybe you want to recreate that feeling of being in the city of sin by closing your eyes and pretending whilst playing on the Android or iOS slot.
Because this Texas Tea mobile slot did not butter our biscuit, dunk our sweet tea, or wet our oil.
