Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers Slot
Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers slot is the third in the series. The original Wizard of Oz slot was followed up with Wizard of Oz: Wicked Riches and now the famed L. Frank Baum fable is immortalised in yet another variant of slots, the Wizard of Oz: Ruby Slippers.
Developed by WMS, Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers comes with five reels and thirty paylines. There are four special bonuses. That the game is interesting is obvious. What interests one more is the sheer reward in the end. The game brings you back to familiar symbols or images. You would be reintroduced to the glowing green background and the enchanted Emerald City, the yellow brick road, the ruby slippers, Glenda, lollipops, toto, apples, the wicked witch, the wicker basket used by Dorothy and her hourglass, the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow and of course Dorothy herself. The theme has a lively design and the sound effects are impressive.
The happy setting only gets happier when you keep winning ushering into the riches promises. The logo of Wizard of Oz is the standard wild. The Wizard symbol is the scatter and this activates free spins or retriggers spins and also awards multipliers. The multipliers can be anywhere from five times to ten of your win amount. The simple game is made exciting with the Ruby Slippers bonuses and the various opportunities coming your way. There are multiple ways to trigger the bonus and you would get accustomed with the possibilities as you continue playing. The bonus will be triggered often but not too frequently lest it gets a little bland and essentially volatile.
The Ruby Slippers feature is activated randomly and it can get triggered in just about any spin. You would get to know that the feature is getting triggered when you find the ruby slippers on the control panel clicking together. Glenda the good witch will appear with the symbolic pink bubbles floating and filling up the screen and this will transform one reel into stacked wilds. The other reels might follow or they may remain unaffected. You can get up to four reels completely transformed into stacked wilds. As they become the red sparkling wilds, you would qualify for a bigger payout. There are crystal balls predicting the immediate future. When the crystal balls start striking the slippers, you can expect to win five hundred times your staked money or the total bet you have placed through the game.
There is a Find the Broom mini game that would be activated when you get two bonus symbols on any of the first four reels along with the wicked witch on the fifth reel. This will transform all the reels into a grip of twenty five boxes, effectively the whole screen. You can click on any of the boxes and try to find the transportation method used by the witch. This feature is not always activated but you may just get lucky. There is a maximum fifty times multiplier as the prize in this mini game feature.
