The original Wizard of Oz slots game from WMS Gaming took the gambling world by storm. If you like what the original game has to offer you will once again fall in love with Dorothy and all her friends when you play this variation. Personally, it is one of my favorite games – and not just because I love the movie. I have had good success, winning more than $500 a couple times. On top of this, the game is full of exciting features that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
How to Play
Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers slots is part of the WMS “Sensory Immersion Gaming” experience. It uses similar equipment to Lord of the Rings slots and Star Trek slots. In short, you will hear, feel, and see your gaming experience. In fact, as you play you will get the sense that you are in Oz thanks to surround-sound speakers and next generation, advanced graphics.
This penny slot machine game (also comes in a nickel variation) is attached to a progressive network. So even though you are betting small amounts you can still win big. If you bet the maximum number of credits and five progressive symbols appear on an active payline, you can win up to $5 million.
The maximum bet on a penny machine is 200 credits. The maximum on a nickel machine is 480 credits.
These machines are attached to a progressive network reset to $500k after a win. Those that are standalone machines still have a top award of $12k.
There are 45 ways to trigger a bonus game. They include: Ruby Slippers bonus, Find the Broom bonus, Emerald City Free Spins bonus, and the Crystal Ball bonus.
During base game play, at random points Dorothy’s ruby slippers pop onto the screen and begin to click – this is the Ruby Slippers bonus. When this happens, anywhere from one to five reels are transformed into wild symbols, many times with a multiplier added.
With the Find the Broom bonus you get to “pick your way to the Wicked Witch’s treasure.” Get lucky and you can increase your winnings! The Emerald City Free Spins bonus is exactly what it sounds like. Different characters award different features including wild symbols, extra spins, wild reels, and multipliers.
For many, the Crystal Ball bonus is most exciting because their favorite characters from the movie appear. Each character shows a crystal ball which reveals your award.
Reel symbols include: movie characters (Tin Man, Dorothy, etc.), the Wizard of Oz himself, sand timer, and the Wicked Witch among others.
I’m not the only one who has fallen in love with Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers slots. On a recent trip to Trump Plaza in Atlantic City I waited 2.5 hours to play this game. While I never came close to winning the progressive jackpot, I started with $100 in my pocket and left with $450. With this type of success it is safe to say that I will be playing this game time and time again.
