Enjoy Bonus Features and More in this Classic Movie Based Slot
The Wizard of Oz is a family favourite film that has enchanted generations ever since it first appeared in 1939. Based on the L. Frank Baum novel, the movie tells of Dorothy’s adventures in the Land of Oz, and her attempts to make it home to Kansas. On the reels you’ll find many of the leading characters from the movie, including Dorothy herself, Toto, the scarecrow, the tin man, the cowardly lion, a munchkin and the wizard himself. With a wide range of bonus features, there is a lot for any fans of the movie to enjoy!
The Wizard of Oz Emerald City does a fine job of taking you inside the story of the movie, with the following range of features:

This first feature can occur randomly at any time during the base game. Glinda the good witch will appear and award between 1 and 5 bubbles that will appear on the reels. The symbol the bubble lands on will duplicate and move up between 1 and 3 positions on the reels. Any time Glinda appears, you’ll have a good opportunity of landing a very nice win.
In the movie, the first time you encounter the Wizard, you see him as a strange, green alien-like creature, before his true identity is revealed. This original image acts as the bonus symbol. Land the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll enter the wheel bonus, which is the main feature of the game.
There are seven different prizes to be won on the wheel. The lowest of the prizes is a gem, which pays 200 coins. The scarecrow, the tin man, the cowardly lion and the Dorothy Jackpot prizes pay 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 and 5,000 coins respectively, any of these enough to turn any slot session into an amazing one.
Glinda the Good Witch Free Spins – 5 free spins with Glinda making an appearance (just like in the randomly awarded feature) and adding bubbles to the reels.
Emerald City Picking Bonus – Perhaps the highlight of the game, this is a picking bonus across six levels. The six levels are Munchkinland, scarecrow, tin man, cowardly lion, the gatekeeper and the Great and Powerful Oz, all keeping in with the narrative and the timeline of the movie itself. Uncover characters and gems along the way, with the awards for the gems increasing as you move through each level. Land on a character with the ‘collect’ symbol and the feature is over.
The Wizard of Oz Emerald City features a 5×3 reel set up. The game utilises the all-ways winning system, where wins will come when simply landing matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. This gives the opportunity of 243 ways to win on every spin, which come at the cost of 40 credits.
Look out for the Jackpot symbol, which is the highest payer at an incredible 10,000 coins. Dorothy pays 500 coins, while the selection of other characters from the movie pay between 150 and 100 coins. The low end of the pay table features the playing card suits.
With relatively small reels, the backdrop to this slot is prominent and features the Emerald City standing proud. Rolling fields lead the way to the gleaming city and you’ll pick out the yellow brick road winding its way through the fields. The game is a colourful one throughout, while the familiar characters do a fine job of bringing the movie to life. The game is added to nicely by an almost dreamlike soundtrack.
This WMS designed game is one that all fans of the movie will enjoy. With 243 ways to win in the base game, both regular and large wins are always a feature. The bonus features offer a nice variety too, with a good mix of pick me features, free spins, Jackpots and added wilds. Enter the Emerald City picking bonus and you’ll feel like you’re part of the story too. A fun and enchanting slot.
