Ready to have a movie throwback experience with Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers from WMS? This unusual, 5 reel, 30 payline game offers an unusual dichotomy of a gaming experience, featuring at the same time one of the biggest offerings of bonuses and one of the weakest presentations you will likely see anywhere. If you can overlook a shoddy presentation and enjoy a wide array of bonus features, then this one is for you!
No, Toto, we may not be in Kansas in anymore, but you could be forgiven for accidentally thinking so given the game’s rather lackluster presentation. The background graphics look like they are appropriate for a game that was released well over twenty years ago; the symbols also look like they’re for a bygone era nobody misses; the music…well, there is no music. The symbols and effects also look something coming straight from several generations of consoles before.
It is then very surprising to learn that there are so many bonus features on hand. A standard wild symbol in the form of the hourglass is just the tip of the iceberg. The Ruby Slippers feature is activated when a certain combination of symbols appears, potentially turning any of the reels into an entire wild! Rounding out the features are a crystal ball bonus, a wicked witch bonus, and a series of interesting feature triggers.
There’s no need to put on your slippers and click your heels to get this one started. Instead, all you will need to do here is determine how much you are going to wager, spin the reels, and hope that you find yourself on that happy yellow brick road. Use the appropriate buttons to set the bet at anywhere between $.30 and $60. You may also play up to 30 paylines. Once you have done this, click one of the spin buttons to get the action started.
