Microgaming Brings Magic to the Reels in the New Book of Oz Slot
- December 27, 2018 By Riley Wilson -
The leading developer of online casino games Microgaming launched a brand-new addition to its offering a couple of weeks ago.
Titled Book of Oz, the fresh release was exclusively developed for Microgaming and its partners by Triple Edge Studios, an independent game studio whose game Wicked Tales: Dark Red was launched for Microgaming operators earlier this year.
A Thrilling Adventure
The exciting fantasy-themed slot offers a combination of dynamic gameplay and features such as Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, and Re-Spins, which give players plenty of opportunities to grab rich prizes.
When it comes to symbols populating the reels, players will encounter the lion of courage, the potion of love, the mystical wizard and the golden book, as well as the Wizard’s Book. The latter serves as both the game’s Scatter and the Wild symbol.
Landing a minimum of three Scatters will trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 12 or 25 spins depending on the number of icons used to activate this feature. During this round players should watch out for expanding and illuminating symbols, as they can trigger huge payouts going up to 5,000 the wager.
Plenty of Fun
The Re-spin feature can also result in rewarding prizes. Using this feature, players can respin a single reel, of course with an additional wager, but this option can help them complete more winning combinations.
Commenting on the launch of the game, Brendan Walton Design Lead at Triple Edge Studios, said his company was excited to release Book of Oz, their fifth game this year. He stated it had been funny developing this game and pointed out the Re-spin feature as a brilliantly fun addition. Walton added the studio was planning more exciting games in the future, which would be made exclusively for Microgaming.
David Reynolds Games Publisher at Microgaming said Book of Oz was another fantastic creation by Triple Edge Studios enriched with magical artistry and packed with rich game mechanics. He explained the Re-Spin feature added a new dynamic twist to the overall gameplay, enhancing the level of engagement and stressed it combined extremely well with the win potential in the game, where players could win up to 5,000 times their bet.
Book of Oz can be played at any of Microgaming-powered online casinos.
