Tycoons is a 5 reel, max 30 pay line slot from Betsoft. Everything in this game is about splashing around tons of cash, and there's even a tasty progressive jackpot to be won. The symbols in this game are all four hyper-rich tycoons with much more money than they need. By playing this slot, you'll be hoping that some of that ability to attract cash rubs off on you! As well as the tycoons there are gold bars, money clips, sports cars and bottles of champagne. We suppose these guys are not scared of showing off their wealth. If only online slots games reviewers were as well paid …
Play takes place in front of a splendid mansion with wobbling palm trees and an ornate fountain. You can select your coin size from 0.02 to 0.50, and your bet per line from one to five. There are thirty possible pay lines in total, and all are selectable. When you're ready to try your own 'get rich quick' scheme, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest prize-winning payout is for three laptops or bottles of champagne, at 5x your bet-per-line. The jackpot in normal play is for five of the speccy tycoon (probably a computer genius) at 500x your wager.
The progressive jackpot is only available if you bet at the maximum level. You need to land five silver briefcases on an active payline in order to win it.
You'll notice there are 'fs' symbols on some of the tycoon symbols. Land three of the same character on a pay line containing an 'fs' symbol and you activate a random number of free spins. During your freebies one of the three central reels will become completely wild, and any character wins that match the triggering character are doubled.
If you land a gold bar, money clip and cheque symbol on paylines one, two or three then you get yourself a bonus credit. Click one of the symbols to see how much you've won.
Land three or more dealer symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the bonus round. You get to select which of the tycoons will win a quick hand of cards. Pick right and cash fills your slots balance.
There's lots to say that's positive about Tycoons, but it's not going to have that longevity that many of Betsoft's slots have. The bonus features are very tame, and it's not exactly the most thrilling slot ever created. The best thing about it is of course that progressive jackpot. Win it, and perhaps you'll be joining the tycoons at their next shindig!
