Game Description for Ruby Slippers from “The Wizard of Oz”
This slot is the second in a series based on the Wizard of Oz created by WMS. The game’s visual style is vivid and colorful, inspired by the Emerald City’s emerald radiance. You won’t find any playing card symbols here; instead, you’ll see figures like Dorothy, the Tin Woodsman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion, as well as the Wicked Witch, her dog Toto, Glinda, and the ‘Friends’ sign.
Jackpot, the highest-paying avatar, is titled properly. If you get five of them, you win 12,000 times your line bet, and if you get four, you win 1,000 times your line bet. The game’s logo serves as both the wild and the multiplier, paying out a thousand times your line wager for five in a row. You may customize your stake by activating anywhere from one to all thirty paylines and betting anywhere from a penny to two dollars per line. With all 30 paylines active, the lowest possible wager is 30p and the most is £60.
Features, Bonuses, and Symbols in the Wizard of Oz, Ruby Slippers Slot
Next to where your stake is shown on the bottom menu, you’ll see a pair of ruby slippers. In the base game, these can connect at any time, but only if neither the jackpot sign nor the Wicked Witch nor the wizard nor the crystal ball appear on reel five during the same spin. When bubbles appear, they can cover up to four reels with wild symbols and increase your multiplier by two or five times. The multiplier is increased by a factor of ten if Glinda the Good Witch makes an appearance.
In The Wizard of Oz — Ruby Slippers, the ‘feature-triggering’ symbols are Dorothy on reel one, the Scarecrow on reel two, the Tin Man on reel three, the Cowardly Lion on reel four, and the Wicked Witch, the wizard, and the crystal ball on reel five. The Feature Respin is activated when any of the feature signs appear on reels one through four, and a fifth reel has both of these symbols. The feature-triggering icons stay put while the rest of the reels are refilled with more feature symbols and the spin button is pressed again. After the respin, another feature is granted if there are two feature-triggering symbols anywhere on reels 1-4.
The Find the Broom bonus round begins when two or more feature-triggering symbols appear on reels one through four, plus the Wicked Witch on reel five. In this round, players select tokens to reveal rewards worth up to 50x their entire wager. Meanwhile, the Emerald City Free Spins bonus is activated when the wizard appears on reel five alongside the other two characters. The symbols that set off the bonus spins have a role in determining the multiplier that will be applied to your five free games. Once the crystal ball appears on reel five and two feature-triggering symbols appear anywhere on reels one through four, the Crystal Ball bonus round will be activated. Certain characters can ‘bang up’ your earnings by as much as 200 times your wager.
