latest game proposition, Texas Tea®.
Tea® is the fourth game from IGT's world-class
game library that WagerWorks has developed for
online gaming. Texas Tea® is another of

in the oil fields of Texas, players become oil
barons making fortunes out of that 'crude' commodity.
Texas Tea® is a 9-payline, multi-denomination
and multi-currency game allowing players to
win up to 100x their total bet from the 'Oil
Dividend' bonus, and up to a massive 12,000
credits in the 'Big Oil Derrick' bonus. The
very popular 'Double-or-Nothing Gamble' feature
lets players turn smaller awards into big pays
and big pays into huge windfalls.
'Big Oil' bonus launches when the player gets
three or more oil derrick symbols on a played
line and on consecutive reels, beginning with
the far left reel. In true WagerWorks fashion,
the game is loyal to the IGT video slot, with
the game screen shaking and rumbling before
oil oozes over the screen, indicating it's time
to go oil prospecting. The player chooses where
to place oil derricks on the map of Texas and
as the oil pumps, the cash bonus builds and
builds into a 'gusher' of an award.
'Oil Dividend' scatter pay bonus is triggered
when three or more Texas Ted symbols are shown
on the reels. All bonus awards are multiplied
by the player's total bet, with the player scooping
up to a 100x payout. Back in Texas Ted's office,
he writes the player a fat 'dividend cheque'.

wide open spaces of the Texas prairie have lent currency
to the phrase that "everything is bigger in Texas".
