The Wizard of Oz Online Slots by WMS Reviewed
The Wizard of Oz slot by Williams Interactive has fifty paylines and five reels for the player to enjoy.
This cartoon style online slots game utilises realistic colour drawings of various elements of the classic 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. It takes the player back to a simpler time and facilitates a very comforting and happy atmosphere.
Behind the reel, the background of this game is a pale blue sky with several wispy clouds. Above the reel is the name of the slot in tall gold letters with red highlights running through the middle. In the word “Oz,” there is a pair of ruby red slippers just like the ones that were given to Dorothy by The Good Witch of the North during the beginning of the movie.
The ruby red slippers originally belonged to The Wicked Witch of the East, but she was killed when Dorothy’s house landed on her when she came to The Land of Oz. This made The Wicked Witch of the West very upset, and she vowed to take revenge on Dorothy for killing her sister and stealing her magic red slippers. In this slot game, the ruby red slippers are seen in several parts of the game to bring the player in to the world of the Wizard of Oz and the story that unfolds as Dorothy tries to make her way to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard. He is the only one who can transport her back to Kansas where she lives with her aunt, uncle and dog.
The reel is surrounded by an orange and yellow border and each of the individual reels is bordered by a pale green marking. Below the reel is a green plaque with additional information for the player. This information includes lines, the player’s bet per line, the total bet and the win. On the far right, the player can see a gold and orange button with a black circular arrow. This is the spin button. At the top of the green plaque is the formula for the player’s total bet. This is the number of lines times the player’s bet per line.
