You’ll quickly notice that the format used in Magic of Oz slots is not typical. On the left reel, there are three symbols forming the reel. As you travel to the right, the reels each add one symbol. By the time you’re on the final reel, there are seven symbols forming that reel. This makes for some intriguing pay line combinations, 80 in all.
All 80 pay lines are active, you don’t have any say there, but you do control how much you bet. Wagers start at $8 and go all the way to $800 per spin. You have common features like autoplay, but there’s also a turbo mode if you want to speed things up.
Without delving into the special features, you can win up to 800 times your bet with six Dorothy symbols. The lion and scarecrow are next with prizes of up to 700 credits. The Tin Man is worth as much as 500, while Toto is slightly lower with a top prize of 300 credits. Other symbols include the crow (up to 250), poppies (12 to 200 credits), and then card suits (club, diamond, heart, and spade) worth 10 to 120 credits.
The best prize is the wild diamond worth 20 to 900 credits. However, it is also special because it replaces other symbols to help form winning pay lines. It also grants two free spins when it’s located on the first reel. During the respins, wild diamonds freeze in place for the two spins. With the wilds frozen in place, it’s pretty easy to win huge prizes.
If you get the Yellow Brick Road bonus symbols on the first, second, and third reels, you automatically win three free spins and a 1x multiplier. You can increase this and add to the multiplier in the two bonus games that precede the free spins.
During Pick a Gem, choose gems. When you fill one of the cards with three identical gems, the number of picks you get for the second game appears. The second game is called Diamond Arrow. During this round, use your choices to light up the arrows on the reel. Once you’ve made your choices, spin the reel to determine your multiplier for the free spins and also try to gain additional multipliers.
Magic of Oz slots stands out as one of the most unique slot games around. The music sets the mood and the huge number of pay lines makes it easy to win a prize each time you spin the reel.
