Oil Mania Scratch

About The Developer
As passionate about online play as they were the day they first set foot in the industry, NextGen have been building games and adding titles to their catalogue for 20 years. An independent gaming platform, they make the same promise to their staff and customers to create games with entertainment, quality, and integrity that can be enjoyed at all levels, all over the world.

About The Game
NextGen are always coming up with new ways to entertain their excitement-eager audience, and with Oil Mania, they have created a sister, scratch-card title, for double the fun! Oil Mania itself is a 5-reel online slot game, set in the grimy, probably very oily – but wonderfully rewarding world of oil drilling.

However, when we haven’t got the time to go relentlessly drilling for oil – and anybody who’s seen Daniel Day Lewis in There Will Be Blood will know how problematic that can be – NextGen have given us an alternative route to the black gold that lurks below our feet, with their simple 4-game online scratch card.

From as little as £0.03 per go (or £50.00 per spin!) we can access a quick reveal of the winnings that await us, which will come in the form of a like-for-like return of investment, a double of our money, or 5x, 10x, 50x, 100x, or even an incredible 1000x our stake! The symbols involved in the game, ranging from least valuable to most rewarding, are: a trio of oil-dripping drums, a rather promising, profit-bursting graph, a trunk of tasty cash, a classic car, a grimy miner - just up from the depths, a splurge of black gold - straight from the seabed, and a manic oil tycoon enjoying his riches.

The game is easy to play, with an adjustable bet amount below a link to the online slot version of the game. We have four scratchcard games to play on each go, with the wooden struts of an oil drill, already bursting with the dark treasure, in a horizontal line of three, with an extra one above on the left of the screen. We see the all-important paytable in the middle of the screen, with the crazy-rich tycoon the face we’d certainly like to see more of as we play!

We can scratch either one card at a time, or hit the ‘star’ symbol to uncover them all at once, after we have triggered the ‘play’ option. The autoplay and audio functions are also available on the right of our screen, if your wish to run silently or quickly through a few rounds of this online scratchcard game.

The Verdict
At Dream Jackpot we had a good old giggle at some of the humorous messages NextGen have incorporated into the gameplay (“lube up your finances”) for instance. The humour matches the cartoonish graphics and light-hearted theme of the game, and it makes for some good, quick gaming fun. It’s hard to go wrong with a simple game, but they’ve still delivered on the entertainment value. 9/10.
