A gentry looking chap is stood on the slot machine dressed in a dinner jackpot, top hat and dickie bow – he’s pleased to see you and encourages you to spin the reels to win big cash. Various gemstones and bank notes float around the slot machine and tease you into thinking what you could have if you were to win the progressive jackpot on offer.
The left of the screen offers the paytable with the symbols and winning combinations for 1 coin, 2 coins and 3 coins staked. You will find symbols reminiscent of Monopoly on the reels – a car counter, diamond, red note, blue note, green note, top hat, gold bullion bar and the moustached tycoon. The right of the machine offers the 3 reels of the game and the ever-growing progressive jackpot display panel. To spin the reels you simply decide on how many coins you wish to stake; 1, 2 or 3 – that’s it! Then you spin the reels and hope for a win.
Big bucks can be won whilst playing and it will only cost you 0.75 to win it – so you don’t have to stake hundreds in every spin like most progressive jackpot slots. Land three of a kind of the tycoon symbols when betting 3 coins and that cash sum sat in the box above the reels will be all yours. If you don’t wish to bet max stakes, you can win 1,000 coins with a 0.25 bet or 2,000 coins for a 0.50 bet. High value symbols include the car, which offers either 250, 500 or 750 coins. Gold bullion bars offer either 100, 200 or 300 coins, while the diamonds offer between 50 and 150 coins depending on your bet.
We were very surprised to see the Tycoon Treasure slot machine offering a bonus game, because the majority of retro slots offer base game wins only. When you land a car symbol on the reels, you will enter into the vault bonus game. Simply decide on the left or right vault and the one that contains the cash will double your winnings.
There are no wilds or scatter to this game, but you can win from different combinations on the reels. Any car symbol awards the bonus, but a combination of any diamonds and bank notes will also award between 3 and 15 coins. You’ll need to find three of a kind of the symbols to receive a cash prize.
888 Gold slot game from Pragmatic Play is another 3-reel slot machine that offers very generous prizes. You can spin the reels from 0.05 to a max of just 25.00 as you try to trigger the 6,000-coin jackpot. There are a handful of symbols on the reels of gold, these include classic symbols of bars with oriental lanterns, coins and the lucky number 8. Boost your bankroll with the wild 8 symbols and generate wins from a combination of any bar symbols.
Become a Millionaire
Tycoons Treasure slot game has a very big hint of Monopoly about it, but unlike the popular board game, you can’t win millions. The stakes are very small and the prizes are also on the small side, so you won’t change your life by winning the progressive jackpot on offer but it will put a big dent in your bankroll. We found the game to be a medium variance with the bonus game spinning in regularly, but good luck finding the vault full of cash because on 10 attempts we couldn’t find it once.
