Oil and global reserves of “black gold” have always been interesting to people around the world. Even those who are not very familiar with this industry talk about it. It is no wonder then that the developers of gambling software periodically use it to create slot machines. One of such simulators is the Oily Business slot designed by Play’N Go. Just like other software created by this developer, it is a progressive jackpot slot that offers a possibility to win a huge prize.
How to play Oily Business
The game has five reels and the images are arranged in three rows. You can choose to play on one to five lines, by activating any number you prefer to see. You can place same or different bets on them. You can experiment and choose any combination and change it at any time. You can place one to five coins with a face value of one cent to two euros. As it turns out, you can bet as little as one cent during each spin, if you prefer micro-limits. The maximum bet here equals to fifty euros.
In this game, there are common images, bonus symbols with special features, three progressive jackpots, a bonus round, as well as two versions of gambling mini-game (for doubling and tripling the payout). Common pictures bring payouts when they combine a continuous sequence of several matching elements. In this case, combinations can be formed from left to right, starting from the first reel, or from right to left, starting with the fifth reel. But only the longest chain in a particular line is considered a winning one.
The amount of what you win is calculated based on the two parameters: the bet on each line is multiplied by the coefficient from the payout table. They start at 5x and can be up to 200x. If there are several sequences in one round, all of them will be added to your account.
At the end of each spin, you can either take all of you winning immediately, or you can take your chances and gamble what you have won. There are two variations of this mini-game, but both of them have similar rules: you need to pick an element out of four or three of them. If you are lucky enough, your payout will be doubled or tripled (depending on which version of mini-game you have played). In case of failure, you will lose everything.
Other ways to win in Oily Business
The common symbols in this game are as follows: red helicopter, barrels of oil, banknotes, and oil industry workers. There are also special symbols here: an oil rig (the wild), red tanker (scatter) and wheel of fortune.
The oil rig grants some prize whenever it is on the screen, and also takes place of other pictures. Three or more rigs activate bonus rounds where you need to choose a location and pick one of the available rigs. Your choice will determine the number of free spins.
The wheel gives some prize no matter where it appears. Three wheels activate the bronze round, four – the silver round, and five – the golden one. You can win progressive jackpot in this mode, but only if you play for real money. In this game the RTP (return to player) rating is 96.2%, so there is always a good chance to win something while playing it.
