ALL ABOUT THE WIZ SLOT
That trend continues with this fantastic medium volatility game with a high payoff potential (5,000x +) in a bonus round that will have you drooling at the prospect of infinite free spins with walking multipliers and higher odds due to the elimination of all low value symbols.
This game also has some fantastic artwork and animation, making it one of the best January 2019 releases.
Symbols, Gameplay, and Pay Tables
A mediaeval castle, lovely mountains, a rainbow, and gorgeous skies serve as the backdrop for the Wiz slot. There are 178 win lines available on the reels, which are 5 wide and 4 symbols deep.
The game has four low-value symbols: a key, a broach, a ring, and a spoon. The premium symbols are a potion bottle, a treasure chest, a moon, and, most importantly, the sun, which pays out 10x for five on a payline.
Keep an eye out for the Dragon emblem, which represents the wild. It not only substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter, but it also comes with a 2x to 5x multiplier that is applied whenever it becomes part of a winline. The Wild Multiplier function is what it sounds like.
NOTE: If a winline has more than one wild multiplier, the two values are added together to achieve even greater prizes.
The Wiz Features
Wizspins Bonus Round
Of course, the true fun is kept for the bonus round — Wizspins! To activate this feature, you must land two or more Wizard Scatters. The following are the rules for receiving free spins:
- 2 Scatters = 1 Free Spin
- 3 Scatters = 5 Free Spins
- 4 Scatters = 7 Free Spins
- 5 Scatters = 10 Free Spins
If you land additional Wizards during the free spins round, you’ll get more spins – one for each Wizard Scatter symbol you land.
There is no limit to the number of additional free spins you may get.
Enhance Reels — During the bonus round, ALL low-value symbols become premium symbols, increasing the odds of hitting high-value win lines.
Walking Wilds with Multipliers–Another bonus round feature is Walking Wilds with Multipliers. When the Dragon Wild appears, he will advance one reel to the left with each consecutive spin, bringing his multiplier with him to increase your chances of winning!
The Final Word
The Wiz features all of the creative brilliance that we expect from an ELK Studios slot, and there are plenty of thrilling moments to be experienced for those who are lucky enough to trigger the bonus round. The main flaw in this slot is that the basic game lacks the excitement required to keep the player engaged until the free spins are activated. So, be aware that if you want to get the most out of The Wiz, you’ll need to be patient — the real fun is locked in with the improved reels and wandering wilds.
Still, it’s not a horrible way to spend the rest of the winter.
