Gameplay and Theme
Book of Oz is an enchanting fiat and Bitcoin slots game filled with fantasy and adventure. Its source material is the 1939 American musical fantasy film The Wizard of Oz, so the game is set within the fictional world of Emerald City. As a sequel, Book of Oz: Lock ‘N’ Spin is the version 2.0 of its successor
The game has 5 reels, 10 fixed paylines, high volatility, and a 96.39% RTP. It’s available on any device from 10p to £25 per spin. There are no significant changes in the layout of the game as Microgaming focused on its bonus features. The original symbols are still present on Book of Oz: Lock ‘N’ Spin: wizards, potions, keys, the Book of Oz, and the A, K, Q, and J card suits.
The Book of Oz functions as the wild and the highest-paying symbol. It can replace all regular symbols except the scatter. The wizards have their corresponding payouts—with 5,000x multiplier as the highest reward.
Book of Oz: Lock ‘N’ Spin can leave you spellbound. The original bonus features like free spins and expanding symbols remain up for grabs, but you can also increase your chances of winning with these new features:
Hyperspins Lock ’N Spin – with the game’s new Locking Reels technology, players can pay extra coins to lock in 1-4 reels and trigger free spins or winning combinations.
2nd Chance Feature – when triggered, 2nd Chance can reshuffle the reels to help you land different symbols.
