Book Of Oz Slots

The Emerald City is a bustling hub of trade, the central seat from which all of Oz is ruled. Within its walls, the wizard reigns supreme, protecting the populace from the evil witches, and making sure the needs of his people are met. While we all know what happened after Dorothy arrives, we know very little of what everyone’s favourite charlatan busied himself with before her arrival. So, join us for a tale of his adventures, which are absolutely unbiased and entirely factual! Book of Oz is a video slot played on a 5x3 playing field with 10 fixed paylines. The game’s bonuses include a joint Wild-Scatter symbol, free spins with expanding icons, and the ability to pay a small cash prize to re-spin a single reel.

How to Play

The graphics in the Microgaming-powered slot are decent, but they are clearly not the title’s strong suit. The main problem stems from a lack of exciting animations tied to symbol wins. While we love the screen transitions, especially at the end of free spins, having icons only zoom in and out after being part of a massive win feels underwhelming. Book of Oz is played on a standard 5x3 playing field where pays are granted for collecting two, three or more identical icon in adjacent positions from left to right, following one of ten active paylines. Having a joint Wild-Scatter symbol is incredibly useful, and pairs incredibly well with the re-spin mechanic. The free spins are an occasional treat, but one that always brought back great wins when we succeeded in triggering it.

Betting Options and Payout

Players can wager between $0.10 up to $25 per spin, which is a decent bet spread for casual and mid-range gamblers, but an awful deal for high rollers. The slot has high volatility, and an RTP of 96.31%, slightly above average compared to other games released by the same developer. The maximum win is worth a juicy 5,000x your total stake.

Symbols and Extra Features

Icons include playing card royals: 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as the red potion of courage, the pink potion of brains, the blue potion of courage, and the wizard of Oz. The golden book is both Wild and Scatter and is used to trigger free spins. Three, four or five Scatters will reward ten, twelve or twenty-five extra turns, respectively. Before any spins are played, an expanding symbol is chosen. This icon will expand to cover the reel, and pays when matching symbols appear anywhere on the playing field, ignoring paylines and acting like a Scatter. Players can use the re-spin function after any regular spin to re-spin a single reel. The price of the re-spin increases the more it increases your chances of landing a strong win.

Our Verdict

Book of Oz has great gameplay but needs a little more work on its presentation. It would not take a lot of effort to add animations to symbol wins, but it would round out the experience and improve their rating. The gameplay and pays are great, so if what we talked about does not bother you, you are in for a treat.
