Enjoy a feel of the all-time favourite film Wizard of Oz on this 5-reel 30-payline slot designed by WMS. Being the pioneer of Wizard of Oz-themed slots, you can be sure to enjoy interacting with your favourite movie characters as well as 4 great bonuses.

Theme

WMS’s Wizard of Oz is the very first slot to feature the movie’s characters and sound effects, much to the delight of its fans. The graphics themselves are incredible, and you will enjoy a treat of the movie’s original music and clips, plus all your favourite characters on the reels. Some of the symbols you can look forward to seeing are Dorothy, Toto, Ruby Slippers, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, A tornado, and the Wicked Witch of the West. The bonus features are also named after the characters, and this slot will take you along Dorothy’s Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion’s adventure through Oz.

How to play Wizard of Oz:

You get to choose how many paylines you want to activate and the stake you wish to place (30p to £150 per spin) before setting the reels in motion.

Symbols and bonuses to look out for:

Some symbols to keep an eye out for are the game logo which is the wild, Emerald city which is associated with the bonus features, and Glenda the Good Witch that adds Wilds across your reels. The Wild logo symbols can replace all other symbols but the feature or jackpot symbols to create winning combinations. Glenda also triggers expanding wilds on reels one and five if the feature and jackpot symbols are not on them.

The base game has some lucrative features, including the Glinda Good Witch bonus that is randomly activated. As soon as it is triggered, Glinda flies across your screen and changes four reels to bring you some great wins.

There is also the Oz pick event that is triggered upon landing the Emerald City icons on reels one, three, and five. The event features two prizes to choose from:

  • Cash prizes: these are 5-10 times your stake
  • Winged monkey: this is the more lucrative option, but is only available when all 30 paylines are active. The prize includes 8 free spins and a 1x multiplier. The winged monkey symbol is one to anticipate, as it can readily replace some random symbols with wilds for even greater wins. If you land additional Emerald city symbols in free mode, you retrigger 8 more free spins.

Road to Emerald City: this feature is the biggest attraction in this slot both for the monetary rewards and the fun it offers to diehard Wizard of Oz adventure fans. This bonus gives you a selection of thirsty emeralds on the Yellow Brick Road that contain rewards in cash, a character land, or the Emerald City.

If you land a character, you will be sent to the Tin Man Apple Orchard, Scare Crow Corn Field, Wicked Witch Castle or the Cowardly Lion Dark Forest where you select a gold charm to reveal the character or go back to the Yellow Brick Road for more emeralds. Every character you meet offers you a cash prize. If you do not find the character, you get a cash prize plus a 2x multiplier. Getting to Emerald city is the highlight for this feature, as you will finally meet the Wizard of Oz and get a large cash award.

Availability

You can play Wizard of Oz on PC or your Flash-enabled mobile device.

Conclusion:

Wizard of Oz is a fantastic game for Wizard of Oz fans who would like an opportunity to recall their memories enjoying the film or the book. The graphics can be better but will do just fine as there are plenty of ways to win.
