This is a review of the new Texas Tea Pinball skill slots. I know of one install at least at Borgata in AC

The game has two spin buttons on left and right which doubles as the left/right flipper controls in the pinball bonus round

The game is comprised of the base game which is a traditional slot machine and the skill based pinball bonus round. You have the option of forgoing the skill bonus for a traditional free spins bonus. Five free spins is what i saw offered

I will review the base game first and then the skill bonus

1) Base game:

This is a Texas Tea themed slot. I saw nothing different from other games in the Texas Tea family although the money and bonuses offered were sadly lacking. Overall the game is incredibly boring

The game grid is 4 high/5 across.

The only way to play the skill portion of the game is to be lucky enough to receive at least 2 bonus round symbols. These are on the middle (3rd) reel only

2 bonus round symbols gets you three balls in the pinball bonus

3 bonus round symbols gets you four balls in the pinball bonus

4 bonus round symbols gets you five balls in the pinball bonus

I ran through and lost $500 without a single bonus round

2) Pinball skill based game review:

I ran through and lost $500 without a single bonus round

End review


EDIT: Hullaboo asked a good question about denomination. I admit i was a bit upset and flustered wen writing the review. The range is sixty cents minimum up to $3 max and yes I was playing max bet wen running through the $500. Nonetheless I rarely go through that at a game at only $3 per spin without a bonus. The individual spins were paying very poorly as well. Perhaps I hit horrible variance. Will give it another shot in the future. But not now

That sucks. (Not the review, just the results).

What was the denomination and how much per game?

I want to say hello and a thank you to mamat. I see you have had some backlash but your post was the only post that seemed to have good information even though someone said it was all hogwash. I would like to learn any information you are willing to share again. I am sorry. This was the wrong thread. I was trying to post in the other thread where you gave some information about skill based games.

This game is in Vegas at the Asian casino. Looks like it sucks.
