This first feature is activated when the monkey symbol appears on reel three. The winged monkey will now randomly select a symbol from the base game (all apart from the wild, the jackpot and the feature symbol). All instances of that selected symbol will now turn into a winged monkey wild, making for a boost to your winning chances.
The free spins bonus round is activated when you land 3 or more feature symbols on the reels. The minimum three scatters awards 8 free spins, while four or five scatters add 10x your total bet and 100x your total bet respectively.
Any time you land a win during these free spins, the wicked witch of the west will appear and apply a multiplier to that win. The multipliers start at 2x, but rise all the way up to 10x, offering the chance for some wickedly big wins.
The free spins feature can be retriggered at any time too, with three more feature symbols adding 8 free spins to your existing total.
Unlike the other two features which are activated by happenings on the reels, the Tornado feature is awarded randomly after any spin. In the feature, players will be asked to select 1 of 8 barns. The barns can reveal a monetary award, or a monetary award plus Jackpot feature – the higher your stake, the more chance you’ll have of uncovering the feature. There are 4 Jackpot levels - Kansas level, Munchkinland level, Haunted Forest level, Emerald City level, with the Emerald City jackpot paying out an impressive 200,000 coins.
The Wizard of Oz Wicked Riches plays out on a 5x3 reel configuration. As well as the four jackpot prizes in the bonus feature, you’ll also find a jackpot symbol on the reels, paying 10,000 coins for hitting five in a row. The Wizard of Oz logo pays 1,000 coins, while the wicked witch and Dorothy’s companions dressed as members of her army each pay 750 coins. Other symbols include the witches dark tower, an owl, her hat and broom, the egg timer and the bucket of water which would see her demise.
This WMS designed slot has a delightfully dark appeal. The background to the reels sees a view of the wicked witch’s dark castle from within the woods at night, with the castle silhouetted against the moon. The reels themselves are on the small side and appear much like they would at any traditional slot machine, with the familiar white colouring and the curvature as they spin. Snippets from the Wizard of Oz soundtrack add a sense of atmosphere and fun to the game too.
The Wizard of Oz Wicked Riches is an enjoyable game offering some incredible rewards. After any spin you could see yourself entering the jackpot bonus round, where players of all stakes could see themselves bagging the biggest wins. See the winged monkey on reel three and you’ve got the chance of a mega win with all of those added wilds. The free spins, with the wicked witch multipliers give the game an extra dimension too. Put all of these elements into the witches pot and give it a stir and you’ve got a must play game.
