Texas Tea is the local name for oil. This IGT slot machine game was an early video slot – created at a time when casinos were transitioning from mechanical games to the newer video slot format. You can still find it in live casinos around Michigan. Texas Tea can also be played online at BetRivers Casino and Unibet Casino via desktop and app-based real money casinos.
The Texas Tea slot theme is the oil industry, with plenty of Texas clichés in cartoon format. You will find oil rigs, jet planes fueled with oil and an oil baron, complete with his ten-gallon hat on the reels. The creatures and wildlife of the region are also included, including armadillos, nose-ringed bulls, cacti, and yellow roses.

Setup: How Texas Tea Slots Work
In a slot industry where the focus has moved towards lots of pay-lines and action all the way, this game is something of a throwback, with just 9 win-lines used. This can be an advantage, as you can play for higher stakes per spin, leading to bigger wins when they come. Those 9 pay lines appear across the five reels.
The standout symbol in the base game shows the logo against a blue map of Texas. Land this symbol five times in a row across one of the nine win-lines and you win 10,000 coins. Land 4 in a row and you pick up 1,000 coins, which is still double the top prize for any other symbol. Hitting 3, 2 or 1 Texas Tea symbols in a row will pay you 100, 10 or 2 coins, respectively.
Five armadillos in a row pay 500 coins, while the jet plane, the bull and the oil baron in his car each pay 250 coins as the maximum win. Each of these symbols pay out when hitting 5, 4, 3 and 2 in a row. The pay table is completed by plants and flowers from Texas, which all offer a top pay out of 100 coins.
Unusually, there is no wild symbol in Texas Tea, with the focus on the additional wins that can be had in the base game.
Oil Dividend Bonus Feature
To enter the Oil Dividend Bonus feature you need to land the ‘Texas Ted’ symbol three or more times across any of the reels (this symbol shows a close up of the oil baron, as opposed to in his car). You now find yourself taken to a second screen that shows Texas Ted sitting at his desk. He will now write you a check as an instant reward. Here are the potential pays:
- Activate the feature with 3 Texas Ted scatters: 3x, 8x, 15x or 25x your total stake.
- Activate the feature with 4 Texas Ted scatters: 8x, 10x, 25x, 40x or 50x your total stake.
- Activate the feature with 5 Texas Ted scatters: 20x, 30x, 50x, 75x or 100x your total stake.
Texas Tea Slots: The Big Oil Bonus Feature
To enter the Big Oil bonus feature you need to land the oil rig three times or more on the reels. You now find yourself on another second screen, where you find a map of Texas divided into several different regions. Next, you place the oil rigs on the regions (the number of rigs you place is the same as the number of rigs you used to activate the feature). Above each of your placed rigs is a meter which keeps a count of how much oil they are producing – every time they spurt oil, the numbers on the meters will rise and your eventual payout will increase.
Three oil rigs will pay between 5 and 100 credits for each, four see these numbers rise to between 5 and 200 credit, while the maximum five pay between 5 and 495 coins each time.
Lone Star Live – Texas Tea Design
Texas Tea, which can be played at Michigan land-based casinos as well as online, has a cartoon-style design. Both Texas Ted and the Armadillo stand either side of the reels during each spin, bringing humor and character to the game, while winning symbols animate when you land a win. Both of the two bonus features add more animated fun into the mix. All the while, a ‘Dallas’ style theme-tune plays throughout your time at the slot.
Will Texas Tea see you Strike It Rich?
This IGT designed slot may be an older game – though it still has the ability to provide an entertaining gambling session. With that cartoon humor coming through from the start, the game is highly engaging. The lack of a wild symbol does feel strange – though prizes are more frequent to offset this. With two distinct bonus features in play, variety is high and the rewards are certainly there. You can head to Texas Ted’s office for an instant win or head out to the regions of Texas to start drilling.
