Book of Oz is naturally a Wizard of Oz-themed slot machine, and one which sees two software developers come together to produce it. Leading casino software provider, Microgaming has joined forces with little-known Triple Edge Studios to unveil the video slot, which offers a small payline structure and low-cost bets for all. At its cheapest, Book of Oz is a game which can set players back roughly 0.10 a spin, as the paylines in the game are non-adjustable. However, if they wish to stick their neck out a bit, players can wager as much as 25.00 a game on this release. That seems like a reasonable wagering range considering there is an RTP (return to player) rate of 96.3% and a non-progressive jackpot worth 500x a bet up for grabs. To snap up that prize, players will be hoping to land 5 of the famous wizard symbols on any line in the game.
As with any slot which has the Microgaming logo associated with it, there are wild symbols in this game. However, these wilds also double up as bonus-triggering scatter icons. Scatter wilds appear as the titular Book of Oz and can be used to replace any others in the game without exception. Three or more wild symbols is all it takes to trigger the free spin bonus in this slot.
Following any spin on the reels, players can opt to use a re-spin feature. These buttons are located below the reels and will cost money to use. The trick is figuring out when is the ideal time to do so. Choosing to use the re-spin option will see reels held and others re-spun, hopefully to maximum effect.
Players will kick-start their free spin round in the Book of Oz slot with 10, 12 or 25 free games, based on how many scatters they located on the reels at the start of the feature. Wizards become special icons during the feature, and they can expand to cover entire reels. With the Book of Oz icon, players can also bag wilds and additional free spins. The free spin bonus round in this slot is not the most exciting ever developed, but it does have the potential to make things a little easier if you seek to hunt down the non-progressive jackpot described earlier.
