A Three Reel Slot Featuring Seven Different Character Based Bonus Features
Ask the question as to which movies would be considered as the all-time family favourites and there is little doubt that Wizard of Oz would be top of many people’s lists. The 1939 movie adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s novel is much loved and has been seen by generation after generation.
Recent years have seen the movie move into slot gaming, with several popular slots designed around the adventures of Dorothy in the land of Oz. The three-reel base game might seem a little simplistic at first, but with an array of bonus features based around the characters, there is much more to this game than meets the eye!
This WMS designed slot is a fun and full of variety, with the following array of features:

The main bonus feature of the game revolves around the emerald symbol. Land three scattered emeralds and you’ll enter the feature, while four emeralds also award a prize of 3x your total bet. You’ll now enter one of the following seven bonus features:
Glinda the Good Witch Booster – You’ll be awarded a different bonus with a cash prize of 300, 600 or 1,500 coins, or a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x applied to the win.
Dorothy Free Spins – You’ll be awarded between 5 and 20 free spins. Every emerald appearing appears on a meter, with 3 emeralds activating another feature.
Cowardly Lion Multipliers – 1 free spin is awarded with reel 1 filled with wild multipliers of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x, 10x, 15x and 25x).
Tin Man Winning Spin – Wilds will cover reel 2 and the spins start with a 1x multiplier. Each successive spin will see the multiplier increase up to a maximum of 25. The feature ends when you land your first winning spin.
Scarecrow Crow Prizes – Between 1 and 3 crows will land on a scarecrow. The first crow awards a cash prize, the second crow may appear and award a cash prize or a multiplier, while a third crow might arrive and award a multiplier.
Wicked Witch Free Spins – The witch wild will cover reel one and three free spins are awarded. Any wilds, logos or emeralds will turn into persisting wilds.
Toto Emerald Trails – You’ll receive unlimited free spins, with each emerald appearing being added to a trail above the reels. Full trails award cash prizes. A spin with no emeralds or wins awards a pooper and three poopers ends the feature.
If you enter a bonus feature and fail to win, a prize guarantee of 3x your bet is awarded.
The Wizard of Oz Road to Emerald City plays out a simple 3 reel set up. There are nine win-lines in total and each pays out when you land three matching symbols. The highest paying symbol is the Wizard of Oz logo, which pays 5,000 coins for 3 in a row. A symbol showing Dorothy and her companions looking at the Emerald City pays 600 coins. The rest of the symbols are the classic sevens and bars.
The backdrop to this movie-based slot features the poppy fields leading to the Emerald City, which Dorothy so memorably passed out in. The reels have a classic white-curved backing, giving the feel of a traditional slot machine, only enhanced by the sevens and the bars. The range of bonus features do a fine job of bringing the movie to life, as does the upbeat and very familiar ‘Wizard of Oz’ soundtrack.
Three-reel slots can have the reputation of being a little basic in comparison to their five-reel cousins. However, this is not an accusation that can be levelled at this game. With seven different bonus features available, this is a game that’s high on variety and all seven play in a unique way. There’s big wins to be had in the base game too, making for a slot that is certainly worth making a trip to Oz for.
