Wizard of Oz Slot
This is the first in a series of Wizard of Odds slots from Williams Interactive (WMS slots). Based on the famous 1939 movie, many of the original characters make appearances throughout including the cowardly lion, the tinman and of course Dorothy. Thankfully, you won’t need to endure real tornados or indeed Kansas to make the most out of this clever take on the classic Wizard of Oz tale.
Wizard of Oz Slot Background
The Wizard of Oz was actually based on a 1900 novel by L. Frank Baum, entitled ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’. Produced by MGM, the movie version was a captivating blend of fantasy, comedy and drama, with some unforgettable tunes thrown in. However, movie-goers weren’t initially ready for such an assault on the senses and in its first run, the Wizard of Oz failed to capture the public’s imagination. Nevertheless, after a re-release 10 years later, it became an unqualified success, cementing its legendary status. Today, this timeless story can be enjoyed through the online video slot.
Wizard of Oz is a 5-reel video slot with 30 pay-lines. The minimum and maximum bets are £0.01 and £150 respectively with a 30 coin-per-spin limit. The game itself is bright and colourful with a large rainbow serving as its backdrop. All in all, it’s a pretty faithful homage to the film featuring plenty of Oz-related reel symbols including a tornado, winged-monkeys, the Wicked Witch and Dorothy’s House. As well as these, the Wizard of Oz logo serves as the wild symbol while the Emerald City is the bonus feature image. The top line win is a generous 10,000 coins for matching five Jackpot symbols - the second highest line is 1000 coins for four jackpot symbols.

Special Bonus Features
Wizard of Oz bonus features are plentiful and help keep things interesting. The first is called the Glinda Good Witch feature and is triggered randomly during the base game. Once activated the good witch appears and turns between one and five reels into expanding wilds. These substitute for all symbols apart from the Emerald City feature and Jackpot Symbols.
The Oz Pick feature requires you to land Emerald City symbols on reels one, three and five. Flashing symbols then appear on the screen which means you’ve won something. This could either be a cash prize, the Road to Emerald City bonus or a Winged Monkey bonus.
For the Road to Emerald City feature, you’ll need to pick from a group of emeralds to claim your winnings. The available prizes are money, a character land feature and Emerald City feature. The character land feature either sends you to Scarecrow Corn Field, Tin Man Apply Orchard, Cowardly Lion Dark Forest or Wicked Witch Castle. You must then pick one of the Gold Charms which will either reveal a character or send you back to the yellow brick road.
If you’ve already found a character and make it to the Emerald City game, you’ll be awarded a cash prize according to which character you’ve discovered – Dorothy is by far the most valuable. The rewards are arranged as follows:
- Dorothy – 300 to 1500 x your line bet
- Scarecrow – 150 to 1000 x your line bet
- Tin Man – 100 to 750 x your bet
- Lion – 100 to 500 x your line bet
If you didn’t find a character, you’re given a second chance by picking one of the gold charms. You’ll either win a character or be rewarded with a final cash prize.
The Winged Monkeys were spiteful little primates in the original movie but they’re rather helpful in the game because they can get you eight free spins. They’re triggered when you land a Winged Monkey Wild symbol on reel three and appear on screen to remove reel symbols and leave wild symbols in their place. Those of you lucky enough to land three extra Winged Monkey Symbols on reels one, three and five will be given extra Wizard of Oz free spins.
