The Texas Tina slot takes us on a journey to the Lone Star state with Ted, his pet armadillo and Tina, Ted’s fun-loving wife. There are plenty of bonuses, and free spins await, as Tina serves up her Texas-size adventure.

IGT’s Texas Tina slot has 20 lines with a 10x max coin bet. I play all 20 lines at 2x or 3x (40¢ or 60¢) per line.

This slot is played with all picture symbols: Texas Ted, his wife Tina, the pet Armadillo, a jackrabbit, or maybe we should call her Jill rabbit, who seems to have a crush on the armadillo, Ted’s trusty steed, Texas’ famous yellow roses, Tina’s diamonds and her high heeled boots as well as the three bonus symbols and Ted’s Texas brand wild symbol. No fruit, numbers or letters, which is an immediate plus in my book.

Three or more Family Portrait symbols landing in any position initiates this bonus. During the bonus you choose a family portrait on the screen, which reveals the credit value.

The Strike it Rich bonus begins when Strike it Rich symbols land in the same position on reels 3, 4 and 5. The symbol turns into a pumping oil derrick and reveals a win between two and 25 times the total bet.

The Texas Tornado Super Scatter bonus is initiated when three or more Texas Tornado symbols land on a pay-line. Five Texas Tornado symbols wins the player 250 credits as well as 15 scatter spins. If you get four symbols then you win 100 credits and 10 scatter spins, while three symbols will win 25 credits and three scatter spins. Additional free scatter spins can be awarded during the free spin round and are added to the spin meter. The Family Portrait Bonus and Strike It Rich Bonus can also be triggered as sub-bonuses during the Texas Tornado Bonus.

This game pays fairly regularly and the minor bonuses hit pretty regularly, but it can take a while to get the tornado bonus. But, when it hits it pays well, especially if you manage to get one of the other bonuses during your free spins.
