Where to play?
WMS have brought the old time classic of Wizard of Oz to life in an online slot machine – one that you can play for free in demo mode before jumping into real cash. This 5 reel, 30 fully adjustable payline creation welcomes bets from as little as 30p a spin to as much as £150 a spin – perfect for slots enthusiasts with varying budgets. If you are a high roller looking to win big cash, you’ve certainly come to the right place, because the Wizard of Oz slot machine throws out a maximum non-progressive jackpot of up to £50,000 in cash – which is a serious amount of money. As features go, you will be kept on the edge of your seat with wilds, scatters, free spins and expanding wilds – which boost your chances of hitting a win. Are you ready to walk the yellow brick road? You could scoop colossal cash, if you are lucky enough.
Wizard of Oz Gameplay
You will find 3 symbols on each of the 5 reels, which are in-keeping with the Wizard of Oz theme, so for those of you who are familiar with the fairy tale, you will recognise Dorothy, red shoes, tornado, Terry the dog, Dorothy’s house, the evil witch, castle, the cowardly lion with the scarecrow and iron man, plus there is a hot air balloon, jackpot logo and the Wizard of Oz logo. Surrounding the reels is the infamous yellow brick road with a blue sky sitting behind. Use the control panel to adjust your bets and paylines, but the more paylines you have in play, the more chance you have of winning. Adjusting bets to high roller levels are painfully slow, which WMS are notorious for, but hang in there, the denominations rising in 1p increments will eventually get to your desired bet. If you are wondering where your bankroll is, it will be placed to the top of the screen. Autoplay is a feature that we recommend, if you don’t like to press spin after spin – just click the autoplay button and it will automatically spin the reels at your desired stake – to stop it, you simply click it again.
Payouts and how to win them
Landing a win line full of jackpot symbols is the key to unlocking the jackpot – high rollers playing £150 a spin, will trigger £50,000 in cash for a 5 of a kind combination. High value symbols are the game logo with up to £5,000, Dorothy with up to £3,750 and the trio of characters (cowardly lion, tin man and scarecrow) with up to £2,500. Medium value symbols are the red shoes, evil witch and terry the dog with up to £750 then the hot air balloon, tornado and Dorothy’s house with up to £500 for a win line full of symbols.
Wizard of Oz Features
Watch for the jackpot symbol, because not only does this award up to £50,000 but it also the games wild symbol. The wild symbols can substitute for all other symbols (bar the castle) to help form winning combinations. Glenda the Good Witch feature can be triggered randomly; this is where Glenda can appear on reels 1 and 5 and turn them into expanding reels. There is the Wizard of Oz pick feature where you pick from the items on your screen to receive cash prizes, plus the Winged Monkey feature and the Road to Emerald City feature where you can receive even bigger cash prizes and free spins.
Rate or hate?
We were never big fans of Wizard of Oz – it was rather far-fetched and we were made to watch it over and over as kids, but the WMS Wizard of Oz slot machine is absolutely nothing like the movie – it’s vivid, highly animated and packed full of promising features with big paying potential. Bets are perfect for players with small and big budgets, but you will only win big cash by playing big stakes. Any of the features can award great cash prizes, but for us, the free spins are where we picked up substantial cash – our £150 stake resulted in us winning over £1,500 in cash. If you love Wizard of Oz, this online slot will provide plenty of nostalgic action for your money.
