What Is It All About

Some very talented developers at Triple Edge Studios teamed up with the award-winning folks at Microgaming. If you’ve played pokies before, you’ll probably recognise Microgaming, because they’ve been around a long time, and made some of the best games around!

The two studios took a well-loved classic game, Book Of Oz, and updated for a new audience. The title was previously known for offering a thoroughly enjoyable experience, but has now been given an all-new feature. The Lock N Spin system, which is a new way of playing pokies that challenges what you expect. But we’ll get to that later. Let’s first take a closer look at the classic game.

Wizardly Symbols

A charming wizard and his book of tricks are the focus of Book Of OZ Lock N Spin. With his magical potions and powerful spell book, he is your best friend when it comes to lucrative money making techniques! The Wizard is the Wild in this game so you’ll want to see as much of him as possible. His spell book, which is easily recognisable by the bold word Oz on the cover acts as the Scatter, so you won’t want to take your eyes off it. The standard symbols are the three magic potions, joined by the traditional 10, J, Q, K and A. As is expected, match the symbols with one another to trigger wins. The Wild will substitute for any other symbol, allowing for more matches, and more wins.

Locking The Reels

This is where things really get exciting! Standard pokies allow you to place a bet, spin the reels, and hope for the best. But Book Of Oz Lock N Spin defies these expectations. Bets are placed and reels are spun, as per normal, but if you don’t like how it turns out you can take control. For an extra cost, 2 reels can be locked in place, and the remaining reels spun a second time. The possibilities are endless, allowing you to create a win where it may have escaped you the first time round.

Of course your focus will be on those Scatters. If you land 2, lock the reels where they reside, and spin the rest, hopefully getting the last you need to trigger the special jackpot feature; Free Spins. The minimum of 3 Scatters triggers 12 Free Spins, 4 triggers 15, and 5 triggers 25. The winning potential is huge, especially considering that they can be retriggered, assuming you manage another Scatter combination during a Free Spin sequence.

This was impressive enough, but it goes one step further! The Free Spins are combined with Expanding Symbols. This means that at the start of your Free Spins, 1 symbol is randomly selected to occupy an entire reel. This means that winning combinations are easier, racking up the cash and loading your pockets with Wizard Loot! Chase the Scatters, trigger the Free Spins, and walk away with a smile on your face.
