This comfort loving wombat was always a bit nervous of the idea of travelling in a tornado to a faraway land, but Microgaming and Triple Edge Studio’s Book of Oz slot looks a lot less scary than this little beast anticipated. And anyway, we’re talking Oz, right? It should be a wombat’s dream!

Set in the gleaming city of Oz this green-tinted slot treat offers you the chance to win up to a 5,000 x your wager prize which this marsupial found pretty motivating. No need to be like that cowardly lion in the movie. Get out there and find some courage in cash happy slot game!
Look and Feel
Book of Oz slot has a swanky look with the reels set in a building in the city of Oz which is all a bit Art Deco, you know all 1920s and 30s.
In this version of the game the main man, the legendary wizard, is less of a conjurer, and more of a business man- what a relief, this wombat isn’t too sure about magicians. I’m more of an earthy character myself. Having said that, I just got off the Great Albini slot and that wasn’t half bad.
Anyway, back to Oz: the reels are set in a swanky golden frame and, at the bottom of each is the word “Re-spin” – more of this later.
This game’s slot action takes place over 3 rows, 5 reels and 10 pay-lines – the same as the Super Hot Fruits slot, but that’s where the similarity ends. You’ll be equally stoked playing this slot on your tablet, mobile device or desktop.
There is still magic on the reels with the game’s top scorer, an icon of the wizard, land five of this magical dude on an active pay-line will earn you a rocking 12,500 coins bonanza. Woo-hoo!
The other top value icons are three different potion pots, one for courage, one for brains and one for a heart- just like the lion, scarecrow and tin man, in the story.
On the lower scoring side of things are the 10 through Ace of the card deck in fancy pants lettering.
Triple Edge Studios have played a blinder on this game we reckon, making the Wild and Scatter the very same icon, a posh spell book, the Book of Oz. If you’re a forgetful fella like me, dual icons are easy on the old brain box.
Free Spinning Fun!
Start weaving your money making magic by landing 3, 4, or 5 of the Scatters, these icons will then give you 10, 12 or 15 free spins to get you cracking.
What’s even better, you can win more free spins if you can land more of those spell book Scatters, and wait for it, yes, there’s no limit to how many free spins you have, as long as you keep on landing those scatters.
The crazy land of Oz is a place where there’s money to be made. Just as you’re about to start taking those freebie spins, a single symbol (not a Wild) is picked randomly to become changed, as if by magic! During the free spins, when this nominated icon lands, it transforms into an expanded icon which can cover all the reel positions. Hell, that’s a great shortcut to cash- thanks you generous bunch of munchkins!
Re-spinning all the way to the bank!
Once you have made a spin, if you’re feeling lucky, you can boost your bet by paying a price to re-spin one chosen reel. Have you ever played the Bikini Party? Not one that I play when Mrs Wombat is around, but the game has a similar feature. This clever mechanism means that you’ll pay a higher whack if you’re very close to making a big win but let’s face it, who wouldn’t pay?
This less than fairy tale Book of Oz makes our wizard out to be more of a shrewd banker and a little less the man of magic.
What the wizard of this slot has lost in tricks, he has made up in the free spins, expanding icons, and pay to re-spin mechanism than all point to making a good spell of wonga. This flash new Oz was somewhere that made this Aussie feel creature feel very at home and a little better off in the wallet department too.
Careful though! This game is high variance. Bonza.
