Dorothy and her companions, and their adventures in the world of the Wonderful Wizard, have inspired countless works of art, from movies and television productions to children’s books and games in the past. And they are well known for slot machine players as well. Thanks to Games OS, they will have another portal to the OZ dimension – the developer has launched its latest game, inspired by L. Frank Baum’s immortal tale of magic.
Magic of OZ is not your usual video slot machine. First of all, it has an irregular reel setup: the first of its six reels has only three symbols, while the last one has 7. The game has a number of 80 fixed win lines, meaning that each spin will play them all. The reels are filled with the well known characters from the book (or the movie, whichever you know better): Dorothy plus Toto, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, joined by the likes of the Crows and the Poppies. To make the set complete, the developers have added four extra symbols – the four suites from a poker deck, styled to match the game.
The Emerald acts as a Wild symbol in the game, standing in for any other symbol, with the exception of the Bonus. The game comes with a Featured Wild symbol as well, one that can only land on the first reel of the game. It’s a stacked Wild symbol, and when it lands, it triggers two re-spins. During these re-spins, all Wild symbols are frozen in place.
The Yellow Brick Road acts as a stacked Bonus symbol in the game. It can land on reels 1, 2 and 3, and when it does on each of them, a Bonus Game is triggered. The Bonus Game has two rounds – during the Pick a Gem round players need to pick out of a series of gems to fill up one of the four characters’ meters, to determine the number of picks for the next round. During the Diamond Arrow round, players will have to choose between Green and Purple diamonds, spin the Wheels of Fortune and try to win more free spins or multipliers (or both). At the end of the bonus rounds players will have at least 3 free spins with a 1x multiplier to play through.
Magic of OZ is a beautiful slot machine, with a lot of magic and winning opportunities.
