This progressive slot is a creation of the company “Ash Gaming” where they have been included special features that besides of being totally enjoyable, they have an excellent winning potential and, in turn, the base game has been enriched by the inclusion of a wild symbol that doubles your winnings, very useful especially when combined with the highest paid symbols of the game.
The first feature is “Yellow Brick Road” where Dorothy must move forward on a path many steps as directed by the wheel of fortune located at the bottom; if you reach the end then you are awarded the “Wizard Bonus”. This feature is triggered by getting three bonus symbols appearing only on reels 1, 3, and 5.
The other way to trigger the “Wizard Bonus” round is by getting two bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3 plus a “Wizard Bonus” scatter on reel 5. This feature is exceptional as you have the right to reveal hidden prizes of 4 coins, cash prizes behind coins are usually quite interesting, but rewards you earn for revealing the face of any character from Wizard of OZ is much better, and if you are fortunate enough to reveal all the 4 characters, then you win the progressive jackpot. Personally, in this round, I have come to win up to 110 times my total bet, what it’s a good win to me.
The last feature is a round of free spins where we collect scatters of Wicked Witch and Good Witch on empty spaces located at the bottom of the slot; we can accumulate up to 10 good witches and 5 bad, when it happens, normal free spins end and we are entitled to a “Super Spin” where the number of good witches will be the number of wild symbols that will be scattered on the reels during our Super Spin. My winnings during this round normally have not been very juicy, but I admit that good things can happen in it.
According to what I have experienced in this game so far, I think this is a fun slot that also has enough potential to make you win big; however, when this slot is in a bad mood, it is a different matter, and I say this because sometimes I have had trouble achieving to trigger the special features and the situation can be worse if wild symbols and regular symbols are not very cooperative when displayed during the base game, in which case, it is best to leave the game and return to try it another day when the tornado has already vanished.
“The Winnings of OZ” is a very popular slot and I personally see no reason to complain about it, so I see no reason to you refrain from making some spins on it and see if its magic suddenly touches you.
