BOOK OF OZ by Microgaming (Free & Review)
Finally a game worthwhile coming from the Microgaming production line, or rather Triple Edge Studios we should say, a partnering studio. Book of Oz is a classic book slot, but with a bit of a twist to it. Everything is exactly what you would expect to see from this type of slot, aside from the Respin feature which allows you to spin individual reels as many times as you like in order to complete winning combinations – to a cost of course. Just like in the old classics, you can look forward to a retrigger happy bonus feature with plenty of potential.
Book of Oz, is a 5-reel slot with 10 paylines designed in the html5 format, making it available on all devices from €0.10 to €0.25per spin. As you may have guessed by the title, it’s based on the Wizard of Oz story and has quite a compelling fantasy theme going on. With a cartoonish touch wrapped up in an Emerald setting, Book of Oz is by far the best online slot produced to date by Triple Edge.
In typical book fashion, the low-value symbols are represented by A, K, Q, J and 10 card suit symbols while the premiums, here represented by keys, hearts, books and wizards, are a bit unusual, adding an original touch to the game. As you would expect, the book is a combined scatter and wild and thus replaces all symbols. While most of the potential is concentrated to the free spins, the base game has value to offer as well. Land 5 wizards on a payline and you’ll win 500 times your stake.
It’s a straightforward old-school slot at its core but comes with an interesting Respin feature. Following any spin, it allows you to spin individual reels as many times as you like in an attempt to land winning combinations. This can come in handy if you need that third book or if you happen to be one symbol away from that 500x win in the base game. The cost of the respins, however, are decided based on potential so you should avoid respinning those reels frantically.
