Tycoons from Betsoft Gaming: Slot Review - livin' the dream in this slot
As we have come to expect from Betsoft games, the technology is suitable for both desktop and mobile devices, and the slot fits all sizes. In sum, this Tycoons slot makes a good impression. The name of this slot machine pretty much sums up what this game is all about; namely, plenty of cash.
As the introduction to this review mentioned, a jackpot is up for grabs in Tycoons. Unsurprising, this progressive jackpot is my favourite feature in the game. Unlike in other more humble slot machines, the jackpot in Tycoons frequently reaches figures in the millions. Of course, it’s not easy to win the jackpot; however, with free spins and extended wilds, chances on the jackpot aren’t bad at all.
Then there is a bonus game, which sees players of this slot machine play a round of poker on behalf of the multimillionaires, giving the user a feel for the kind of "tycoon games" these guys get up to. Whether it's the oil billionaire or the young tech entrepreneur that wins (that’s up to chance), you decide which one you want to go for, which in turn determines if you are going home with some serious cash.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
This slot looks very cool. The design depicts a mansion instead of the usual reel borders. Inside this mansion, which resembles the White House, symbols representing wealth and fame, such as stacks of dollars and oil billionaires, spin smoothly. The jackpot amount is displayed just above the entrance to that mansion – how very fitting!

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
Alike most Betsoft 3D-slots, Tycoons has 30 paylines and five reels. The sound effect, a fountain splashing musically, is fitting and luckily not irritating. This means there is no need for the mute button. It’s best to maximise your stake to be in with a chance on the progressive jackpot. This is down to the fact that Tycoons does not offer the kind of action that sometimes comes with low volatility slot machines.
Our Verdict on Tycoons
Tycoons impresses with its graphics. While the theme, ‘life of the rich and famous’, has been exhausted within the games industry, this slot machine by Betsoft somehow does a better job at interpreting the theme.
