The Winnings of Oz slot is an instant classic, a 5-reel 25-payline penny slot which plays fast, includes lots of bonus features, evokes memories of the classic film and/or novels, and includes a 100,000-coin progressive jackpot payout – there’s no place like the casino, no place like home
Welllllll, it’s more based on L. Frank Baum’s book series – in one or two rather obvious places, as it turns out; more on this below – probably because of copyright infringement laws. With the exception of Dorothy, the characters in the Wizard of Oz slot game differ significantly in appearance than their Hollywoodized versions –yet, you’ll recognize them.
Starring among the high-paying symbol set of the Winnings of Oz slot are one icon featuring Dorothy and Toto, plus another featuring her three wacky compadres. Also in here are the tornado and glass (WTF?!?!?!!?) shoes. If they're not ruby red why even put them in there? I guess we're lucky it's not the “Green Linoleum Road” or something…
More characters are including, appearing in the multitude of special symbols, but we should also point out that the low-paying symbols are filled in by the A, K, Q, J and 10 because Dorothy was a mad poker player.
Are you kidding? Like taking candy from a bunch of babies. Look: The Cowardly Lion gets bluffed out on a raise every time and the Scarecrow doesn't even have a freakin' brain. The Tin Man might have some skills, but does not have the heart of a champion. Dorothy’ll clean up with plenty of time to check the last pair of *ruby* shoes outta town.
In short, many. And now, the details.
First up, the game logo is the wild, paying out bonus multipliers of 2x, 100x, 800x or 2,000x, when landing two, three, four or five, respectively, on to any winning combinations paying.
The Wicked Witch Of the West is a scatter and she appears only on reels 2, 4 and 5. When three land like so, you'll enter the free spins bonus round. The Super Spin feature is triggered at the end of this round; the number of wild Good Witch symbols which landed on the reels during free spins are placed on the reels for HUGE wins.
A couple of bonus symbols are in play in Winnings of Oz as well. If the Yellow Brick Road symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, it's to the Yellow Brick Road Bonus Round with you. This is a board game-looking video bonus round which can earn the player bonus multipliers of up to 400x – or even the progressive jackpot!
With these bonus symbols in reels 1 and 3 plus the impressive-looking illusory Wizard of Oz icon in reel 5, you’ll enter the Wizard of Oz round, a similar board game which could end in the spilling of that progressive jackpot payout.
Where will you find me?
Perhaps somewhere over the rainbow, but more likely at the online casino playing slots….
