Microgaming decided to take us to the wonderful Land of Oz and the magical Emerald City, where fantasy creatures go to look for courage, hearts, brains and massive payouts. The 2018 release is played at 5 reels and 10 paylines and pays from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, while offering a maximum possible payout of 5,000x the bet.
The central attraction of the Microgaming title is the Book of Oz which hides all the necessary spells. It acts both as Scatter that triggers free spins and Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols. Up to 25 freebies can be triggered at once and one of the symbols will be randomly chosen to be the expanding symbol. Also, there is the Respin feature on the offer, which enables gamers to separately respin each reel as many times as they want at a certain price.
Play Book of Oz
We have already mentioned the Book of Oz, which is both Scatter and Wild, so it is the most important symbol on the reels. The Great Oz is the most famous magician in the Emerald City and at the same time the most lucrative symbol. He offers all sorts of potions that are prepared in his big palace. Here you can acquire Courage potion, Heart potion, Key potion and many others. Also, the standard playing cards are used for low-value symbols.
How to Play
The rules of the game are as simple as possible. The 2018 release features 5 reels, 3 rows and offers 10 fixed paylines. They pay left to right starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts.
To set the most appropriate bet, select the coin value ranging between $0.01 and $0.50 and the number of coins you want to place per payline (1-5). Bet as low as $0.10 and as high as $25 per spin.
High rollers are advised to click on the Max Bet option. Speed the reels up a bit by activating Turbo mode or relax by activating automatic spins in Autoplay.
Strategy & Tips
The Respin feature enables gamers to respin each of the reels separately as many times as they want. Every respin costs differently, but, if you see the opportunity to form a winning combo simply by changing the order of symbols on one reel, you can use the feature.
Land 3, 4 or 5 Scatters to trigger 10, 12 or 25 free spins respectively. During the Free Spins feature, one of the symbols will be selected as a special symbol and it will have the ability to expand and cover the entire reel if there is a possibility to create a winning combo.
To be completely honest, we are not sure about the correct location of the Emerald City, but, thanks to the good people of Microgaming, you can visit the amazing Land of Oz from the comforts of your homes or on the go. The 2018 release is playable across all devices.
