The Magic of Oz slots is a very nostalgic slots game for many players who like to revisit their childhood and remember Dorothy the lion, the scarecrow man and the tin man together with the Wizard himself and of course the yellow brick road on the quest to get to Emerald city. This is not a standard slots game there are in fact 6 reels and 80 paylines. The first reel has three positions, the second reel has four positions, the third reel has five positions and the fifth reel has six positions with the sixth reel having seven positions. Players will notice many familiar sites in this game including the yellow brick road and the field of poppies.
Three main bonus feature options characterized this slots game together with the optional auto play and turbo play features. Turbo play allows players to speed up the reel spins and auto play lets the player pre-set the number of spins that he wants the game to run for consecutively and at any time he can halt the auto play and revert to manually playing Magic of Oz.
The gleaming emerald is the wild symbol that substitutes for other symbols on any of the reels and offers very handsome payout. Six of the emeralds award players 900 coins, five of the emeralds award players 250 coins, four of the emeralds award players 80 coins three of the emeralds award player’s 20 coins. There is also a featured wild emerald that only appears on reel 1. When the featured wild does appear on reel 1 the other wilds on screen, if there are any, are held in place and the reels are re-spun twice.
The yellow brick road picture symbol is another important aspect of the game. This symbol only appears on reels 1,2 or 3. When appearing on these reels it triggers the bonus game giving players 3 free spins with a single multiplier. But in addition the player receives entry to the two part bonus games: pick a gem and the diamond arrow round. The pick a gem bonus round requires players to fill up areas with gems and once full with a certain gem the player is rewarded with more free spins. The diamond arrow round takes players to a screen where they spin a wheel and landing on one of the diamond areas awards the player more free spins and a bonus multiplier. Nostalgia and fun are the best way to describe this modernized slots game that centres on a well-loved fairy tale of good over bad.
