The Wizard of Oz Pokie
Wizard of Oz is an officially licensed pokie, which has been designed and developed by WMS Gaming, and is themed on the Wizard of Oz movie. The classic movie is well represented in this pokie, with Dorothy, her ruby red slippers, a tornado, the Wicked Witch of the West, Toto and the house that is no longer in Kansas. Graphically, Wizard of Oz isn’t the best, but at least it is faithful to the original movie.
The Wizard of Oz is a pretty simple pokie, with players able to choose their stakes by clicking on huge buttons, located at the bottom of the screen. Players can stake anything from 0.30 up to 150.00 per spin on this game. They won’t be able to adjust any of the 30 paylines, which sit on 5 reels in this pokie, though. Wizard of Oz is a non-progressive jackpot pokie, and it was released in 2010.

Wild symbol: Wizard of Oz’s wild symbol is the game’s logo. When this icon appears, it can replace all other symbols in the game, excluding the feature and jackpot icons.
Feature icon:Keep an eye out for the Emerald City icon. If you get three of them on the first, third and fifth reels at once you’ll trigger the Oz Pick feature. There, you can choose between a free spins bonus, The Road to Emerald City bonus, and an instant cash prize.
Free spins: The Winged Monkey free spins round can be selected and offers players 8 free spins, with a 1x multiplier. Landing the Winged Monkey on the middle of the third reel will offer substantial wild wins.
Bonus round: Alternatively, you can choose to play the Road to Emerald City bonus. Players can win from 30 emeralds on the Yellow Brick Road, which will offer them a cash prize, a character or the Emerald City. If you land a character, then you can pick a golden charm to win a character, or to return to the Yellow Brick Road. If you get to the Emerald City, then you will pocket cash prizes for every character you have found.
A randomly triggered feature is also available in this game, known as the Glinda Good Witch bonus. When it is activated, Glinda will shoot out across a total of 4 reels to, handing out wilds to offer cash prizes.
Obviously, the more money you are wagering on this pokie, the better your cash prize is going to be. The top prize is acquired by landing 5 of the jackpot icons on any active line. When playing with the maximum stake, this can amount to some 50,000 coins coming your way, which is a tidy non-progressive pay-out.
There are several Wizard of Oz pokies developed by WMS Gaming, and this is the first. You can tell. The features are pretty spiffy, but they only get better in the subsequent games they have developed. Wizard of Oz is good for a first attempt, but its sequels are more fun.
