Produced by Microgaming and Triple Edge Studio and set for release on the 24th
of September 2019, this epic new casino game
allows players to lock a total of between 1 and 4 reels in order to turn their near wins into bigger wins. Let’s dive in to get a better idea of what the new version of Book of Oz Lock N Spin is all about.
Getting to Know the Land of Oz
Given the popularity of its predecessors, it is no wonder Microgaming
and Triple Edge Studio decided to breathe new life into Oz with this new instalment. With a fantasy theme, crisp, colourful graphics and engaging game play, players will find themselves fully immersed in this gem of a game. After all, who doesn’t remember the enchanting story of Oz? And what better way to revisit that space than an exciting game?
There are many great features to cover, but first let’s take a quick look at some of the slot’s general stats so you can know exactly what to expect when playing.
Book of Oz Lock N Spin features 5 x 3 spinning reels with a total of 10 fixed paylines. If you’re wondering whether or not this slot uses Wild symbols and Scatter symbols, the answer is a resounding yes. You will also be happy to hear that the game has both multipliers and free games. All of the wins for this slot pay from the left to the right. The exception to this rule is the Scatter symbol. The Scatter can actually pay in any position. All of the wins that the player manages are taken and multiplied by the bet per line, except the Scatter symbol.
Something else to keep in mind is that only the highest win is paid per line. The minimum bet for this slot 0.10 while the maximum bet goes all the way up to 25 coins per spin.
Now that we have gone over some of the game’s general information, let’s take a much deeper dive into the myriad of features that you can expect and how they impact gameplay.
A World of Features
The first feature, as you might have guessed by the name, is the Paid Lock N Spin. As we mentioned a bit earlier, this exciting feature lets the player lock from 1 to 4 reels and is available after any regular spin. You are then able to respin the unlocked reels as many times as you would like. Imagine the possibilities of locking 4 symbols and having the next spin land you a huge win! With Paid Lock N Spin, it’s possible to do just that. One thing to keep in mind is that only wins that involve the reels that have been respin will be paid.
Another feature that players will be eager to take advantage of is the free spins feature. Who doesn’t like free spins, right? Well, to activate this feature, you will need to land 3 or more Scatters. For 3 Scatters, you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. For 4 you will earn 12 free spins while 5 will award a hefty 25 free spins!
A great aspect of the free spins is the expanding symbol feature. At the start of free spins, a special symbol is given to the player at random. This special symbol then expands to cover the whole of the reel and then pays when a symbol that matches then lands anywhere on a line. If you’re wondering whether free spins can be trigger, they absolutely can!
There is also a second chance feature with this slot. With this feature, at the start of free spins, players can choose to reshuffle if they would like a different symbol. They can also choose instead to keep the current symbol that they have been given. If you’re not sure which you’d like to do, the game will also offer a suggestion as the best option for the player.
Scatter and Wild Rules
You definitely want to understand the rules for Scatters and Wilds with Book of Oz Lock N Spin, so let’s take a minute to quickly review them. For Scatter symbols, wins are multiplied by the total bet staked by the player. These wins will add to payline wins.
For Wilds, the Scatter functions as both a Scatter and a Wild. Scatters substitutes for all symbols for line wins and those wins are multiplied by the total bet and then added to line wins. You should also know that Scatters pay in any position.
Now that you know what to expect, it’s almost time to join the wizard on another adventure. Good luck!
