Features and Gameplay
The reel symbols include Dorothy, a trio of the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion, ruby slippers, a wicked witch, Toto, hot air balloons, homes and tornados. The Wizard of Oz logo symbol is wild. The Emerald City symbol is a scatter symbol and the Oz Pick Feature game is activated when this symbol appears on reels 1, 3, and 5 simultaneously. The Oz Pick Feature game can either result in a monetary bonus prize amount, the Road to Emerald City feature, or the Winged Monkey Free Spins feature.
The Road to Emerald City feature consists of the player selecting from a group of emeralds. Hidden under the emerald may be a bonus prize amount, Characters Land or the Emerald City. If under the emerald is hidden a Characters Land, the player is randomly sent to a bonus round in either the Scarecrow Corn Field, the Tin Man Apple Orchard, the Cowardly Lion Dark Forest or the Wicked Witch Castle.
If hidden under the chosen emerald is the Emerald City bonus, the player is sent to the gate of the Emerald City to select a gold charm. Under the charm is either a monetary final bonus prize or Glenda the Good Witch. If Glenda the Good Witch is revealed, she will randomly select one of the four characters to see the Wizard of Oz. The gates open and the Wizard of Oz tells each character of his reward.
The Winged Monkey Free Spins feature is just that, a series of 8 free bonus spins. An alternate set of reels is used that is identical to the main reel set in regards to winning combinations. Several wild symbols appear throughout this bonus round, in addition to lots of flying monkeys and flying monkey bonuses.
Periodically, Glenda the Good Witch will float above the reels during the main game spinning feature and will change some of the reels to expanding wilds. An auto play feature is added for hassle-free spinning. The Wizard of Oz video slot machine is impeccably designed, with colorful graphics and sound, making it an excellent choice for online casino slot playing.
