Aesthetically the game perfectly resembles the weird and wonderful world of Oz, with a dark mysterious background contrasting well with iconic ruby red slippers, and the colourful figures of Tin man, the Lion, and Scarecrow acting as the reels symbols. The music also allures to mystery, playing a catchy yet unorthodox high pitched tune. The game also excels in functionality. There are options for bet type, bet stake, and auto play, giving the player ultimate control.
The gameplay is what best puts this control to use, and the Wizard of Oz slot certainly excels in this aspect. 3, 4, and 5 reel winning combinations are frequent, with the Wizard of Oz symbol providing regular wilds to boost wins. The famous character, Glinda the good witch, also makes an appearance, randomly casting spells to turn whole reels wild, often resulting in huge payouts.
The Wizard of Oz slot has one feature mode and a jackpot prize. The feature mode is triggered by three feature symbols present on the screen after any one spin, and this is where all the magic of Emerald City comes pouring out. The player must first choose between a cash prize, road to Emerald City or the Winged Monkey bonus. The Winged Monkey bonus, launches an assault of evil monkeys onto the screen during free spins, as they rip symbols open turning them wild. The other bonus selection, the road to Emerald City, gives the player chance for huge wins, as the Wizard deems his fate by granting varying prizes.
