The Book of Oz slot game by gaming stalwart Microgaming was released in December 2018. It is a five reel, three row and a ten pay line game. The Return to Player percentage is a decent 96% with a house edge of 4% and is a game with a high variance. Although the game is released on the Microgaming platform, Triple Edge Studio is responsible for the design of the game. The game offers an auto play function and spins can be pre determined. Bets at Wizard Slots can be as little as 10p and as high as £25.
Gameplay on Book of Oz
The game, as you would expect, is linked to the Wizard of Oz but the author, Frank L Baum, actually released fourteen books about Oz and its characters and not all of them featured Dorothy or even the wizard himself so if the player is expecting this game to be a copy of the Wizard of Oz then be prepared for a little disappointment.
The Wizard of Oz, however, does feature in this slot game and a lot of the symbols are related to the 1939 movie. The Wizard of Oz in his green hat is the highest value symbol and has a multiplier of two hundred and fifty. The Lion pays up to a one hundred multiplier with five on an active pay line. The usual card symbols are present and are the lowest value, the ten, Jack, Queen, King and the Ace will pay either multipliers of five or seven and a half. The graphics, despite the game being very new, have been chosen along a cartoon theme. The game is accessible across all devices.
The setting for Book of Oz slot game is the Emerald City and the original Wizard of Oz theme. The wild symbol is the actual Book of Oz but it also doubles as the scatter symbol too. It has the capacity to override every other symbol.
Bonuses of Book of Oz Slot
The respin option is by far one of the coolest out there. After any spin the player has the option to pay an additional bet and respin any reel of their choice, however, any lucrative win and the respin bet value increases. The less potential a reel has the less it is going to cost. If the player has two scatters on the reels then the way forward is to select a reel at random and keep respinning until a scatter appears. It can become a little expensive but it’s an easy option to trigger the bonus games and get the rewards.
Players shouldn’t play this game expecting to see their favourite Wizard of Oz characters or listen to melodies of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. It wont happen on this game but players should choose it for the auto spin feature, the return to player percentage and because of the partnership between Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios.
