Hmm, what does The Wiz remind you of, do you think? Could it be the presence of a wizard, perhaps? We’re not sure, but we are about to find out… and to be taken to a world packed with dragons…
Who created The Wiz?
The game comes from ELK Studios, a game studio that has also released these titles:
- Lake’s Five
- Ho Ho Tower
- Poltava – Flames of War
How does the game work?
This is bigger than your average slot game, as you are about to see:
- Five reels
- Four rows of icons per reel
- 178 connecting paylines
- You will play with 20 coins per spin
- The cheapest coin to use is worth one penny
- The largest available coin is £5
You can play a free version of the game that works just the same as the paid one. This is ideal for getting the hang of how it works.
Can you use a strategy to get more from The Wiz?
No – the only decision you need to make concerns the value of your wagers with each spin. Other than that, the game plays out the same. Our research has indicated the bonus feature (more shortly) seems to drop quite often, so that is good news.
It is worth remembering you can try The Wiz slot mobile version as well, if you prefer to play on a smaller screen.
Special features you will find in The Wiz slot
Now we get to the meat of our review – the information that reveals whether you’re likely to enjoy this one or not.
- The wild is shown as the head of a red dragon
- A wild forming part of a winning combination applies a random multiplier to that win
- This could be between 2x and 5x in value
- If more than one dragon contributes to a win, their values are added up before being applied, i.e. 2x and 2x would produce a 4x multiplier
- The wild doesn’t replace the bonus symbol
- This is The Wiz (the wizard)
- He appears with white hair and a beard, carrying a gem in a staff
- He has the power to trigger Wizspins
- Wizspins are free spins
- Two or more The Wiz icons are required to trigger them
- Two bonus icons trigger one Wizspin
- Three bonus icons = five spins
- Four bonus icons = seven spins
- Five bonus icons = 10 spins
- Finding one, two, three, four, or five extra bonus symbols while playing your Wizspins means you will secure a further one, two, five, seven or 10 additional free Wizspins on top of the ones you already have
Whenever the wild appears in these spins, it will move to the left on every subsequent spin. You may well see more wilds in play thanks to this feature.
A stunning design
We should note how amazing the design is. It has a magical feel to it, with a castle, blue skies, and a rainbow too. There are lots of beautiful symbols on the reels as well, making this a truly entertaining slot to play.
