Book of Oz

book of oz

The Book of Oz is an enchanting 5 reel online slot game from the hugely popular software developer Microgaming. The game is based upon the 1900 children’s book entitled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum. Most of us are perhaps more familiar with The Wizard of Oz -  one of the hugest cinematic movies in history – released in 1939 and still going strong after many decades! Book of Oz seems to be a modern day, “cooler” adaptation of the story and presented in online slot format, featuring 10 fixed pay lines, a 5x3 reel grid and a stunningly intricate emerald green design.

There may not be a yellow brick road or any ruby slippers in sight, but this pretty game makes us feel right at home in the Emerald City – so much so that we’d rather stay here than head home for Kansas!  There are a few unique and exciting features to watch out for as you spin the reels and thankfully, not a wicked witch to be seen. Have you got the courage, heart and brains to find the wonderful wizard, and will he bring you riches?

Special Features

 The reel symbols in this visually pleasing online slot feature the Book of Oz, the elusive (or perhaps not so elusive in this game) wizard, and vials of potions representing courage, the brain and the heart. These make up the higher value symbols, while playing card icons constitute the lower win symbols.

The Oz book is the most thrilling symbol; this acts as both a wild and a scatter. It substitutes all symbols within the game, while also holding the power to grant free spins aplenty.

A distinct and important feature of Book of Oz is the respin element. At the end of each regular spin in the base game, you have the option to respin a single reel as many times as you choose, to potentially complete a win. You can only spin one reel at a time, and they do cost – but it can be more than worth your while if you are able to complete a crucial win! It might only be a slight additional chance at grabbing that tantalising win, but it’s an extra chance – a step closer - and that’s why we love it. 

Bonus Features

Landing 3, 4 or 5 Book of Oz scatters on the reels will kickstart free spins: that’s 10, 12 or 50 free spins respectively. It is possible to retrigger free spins, and also win up to a huge 5000x your total stake!

The wizard symbol will be awarded at random at the beginning of your free spins feature. This symbol can expand and cover the reel if matching symbols land upon that particular line; however the wizard will only expand if a win can be completed. This greatly boosts your chances of snapping up those huge wins during the free spins bonus – we told you it would be worth meeting that mysterious wizard!

Verdict

Book of Oz is an exciting, uncomplicated slot game that manages to impress and engage with both unique yet simple features. The striking design will captivate a range of avid slots players, while the respins aspect is a simple yet incredibly appealing feature. A good all-rounder, Book of Oz is up there with our favourites.
