Welcome To The Emerald City
The Wizard of Oz: Emerald City is a licensed slot based on the classic film of the same name. Fans of the film will be glad to see that the reel symbols feature the likenesses of the characters from the film rather than original animated designs.
The reel icons seem a bit small at first but this is only till you realise that the reels can expand and go from the standard 5×3 layout to a screen filling 6×5 layout. Other than the character portraits on the reels, there isn’t much else to tie this pokie to the original films. The backgrounds, sound effects and animations, while based on the film, all feature original designs so it still has a few unique touches to surprise those who thing they have seen all Oz has to offer.
The bonus features included here by developer WMS are quite dense and detailed but it is great news as WMS games can often be bit sparse on features. While the RTP on offer is quite low at 93.95%, you do get a 243 ways to win pay system which still means better winning odds than standard paylines.
The minimum wager available is quite high with spins requiring a stake of at least 0.40. The jackpot of 250 000 may tempt a few players to at least try this slot out even though they may not be fans of the original film.
Meet Glinda The Good Witch
The Glinda the Good Witch feature is a randomly awarded bonus that only occurs during the standard game. The good witch Glinda will blow between 1 and 5 special bubbles onto your reels.
These bubbles will land on random symbols and duplicate them up to 3 spaces up on the reels, creating the aforementioned larger reel layouts that can stretch the 5×3 reel space into a 6×5 reel space. On reel 2 and 5 special wild bubbles can land that would, instead of duplicating a symbol, turn it wild first.
The Oz Bonus Wheel
The great Oz himself is the main bonus icon and when his face lands on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel then you enter a special bonus wheel section. You can win one of 5 cash prizes or you can access the free spins or pick-me bonus round.
The free spins round can award an up to 15x win multiplier amongst other features. The pick me bonus game, called the Emerald City Picking Bonus, can award players up to 150x their staked wager in cash prizes. Wizard of Oz is a solid slot but a higher RTP and more visuals from the films would have been a nice addition.
