Bonus Games in The Winnings of Oz
The Winnings of Oz is a 5 reel slot that has 25 paylines. There are two bonus games, the Yellow Brick Road and the Wizard Bonus as well as a round of unlimited Free Spins.
Yellow Brick Road
The round starts when symbols of the yellow brick road land on the first, third and fifth reels. The meandering road to the Emerald City with multipliers in each section appears on a new screen. The further Dorothy advances, the higher the multiplier becomes. Along the way you can meet the Tin Man, the Lion and the Scarecrow. Each of these new companions adds to the winning amount.
In the right corner of the screen there is a reel. You need to click the Spin button below it to advance along the road. Your goal is to reach the Emerald City, where you will launch the second bonus round.
If you are playig for real money and your bets are high, you will see the Progressive Jackpot image along the path. If you manage to reach this section, big winnings are guaranteed for you.
The second bonus game is the Wizard Bonus. You can launch it in two ways, either by reaching the end of the yellow brick road in the previous bonus feature or if the yellow brick road symbols land on the 1st and 3rd reels and the Wizard Bonus symbol lands on the 5th reel.
In this game you have to select 4 coins that will uncover portraits of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion.
For each character, the Wizard of Oz will reward you with a multiplier up to x1,000. If you manage to collect all four characters, you will receive the progressive jackpot.
In The Winnings of Oz you get free spins, when three symbols of two witches and the words 'Free spins' appear on the second, fourth and fifth reels. If more of these symbols appear during the round, additional spins will be awarded.
Symbols of the Good and Wicked Witches may appear on the reels in this round and they can create their own combinations. Additionally, the Good Witch is the Wild symbol that can replace all others to complete winning combinations. The Wicked Witch is the Scatter and if 5 Wicked Witches appear the free spins will finish and trigger the final super spin.
During the round the symbols of these two Witches are collected and when the free spins have finished and the super spin starts, the Good Witch symbols will be added to the wheel to increase your chances of getting a big win.
