Wizard of Odds Features
The Wizard of Odds slot machine gives players a nice, standard reel set up with twenty pay-lines on which they can place their bets. There are three special symbols on board, the golden cauldron, the wizard’s hat and the spell book. These give you access to the three feature games on offer from the slot machine, which does mean that the base game grid can become a little congested, making it hard to hit the combination wins. Still, help is on hand from the wild symbol, which appears frequently on the reels, substituting for all other symbols barring the scatters.
Mazooma, the makers of this game, have never been a big player in the online slots market. However, the Wizard of Odds seems to represent a new standard for the company. It’s got some really good looking graphics, with lots of fast paced animations on the reels, and a semi transparent look to the base-game grid that allows you to see the fairytale scene in the background. Sonics are bang on too, with great reel winning noises and all the hype sounds you could possibly want, adding to the immersive quality of the game-play.
You never know when the handy spell-book bonus is going to hit the reels in the Wizard of Odds slot machine. This is one of those randomly awarded reel features that can drop in at any time, requiring only a single reel symbol for activation. When it does it, the pages of the spell-book will start turning rapidly, clocking up cash as each leaf flips over. When the music stops, as the saying goes, the total cash prize dictated by the pages will drop into your casino coffers.
As with many slots of the moment, Wizard of Odds offers players a free spin round. Simply stop in three or more of the blue wizard’s hat symbols anywhere in view to activate this bonus. Before you go off to the feature round you have to pick one of the activating hats to decide your spin count, and then you’ll get to pick again to decide your multiplier. I’ve seen this go as high as fifteen free spins at a 6x multiplier – which is very high for this type of special feature. This bonus on its own would be enough for many slots, but Mazooma haven’t stopped here, giving you just one more feature, and what a good one it is too.
The biggest bonus wins on offer from Wizard of Odds can be found in the special second screen feature, known as the cauldron bonus. Again this is a scatter activated feature, requiring players to hit three golden cauldrons anywhere in the base game. This takes you into the Wizard’s laboratory where you’ll get to mix a bunch of potions. Complete the spell for a prize, but if you can add the right ingredients into the pot to make the bubbling liquid explode, then you’ll find there’s a progressive jackpot coming your way.
Slot Professor Says
Wizard of Odds? Hook me up. I'm sure that the Wizard of Odds and the Slots Professor could have a truly great evening out on the town drinking, going to strip bars and playing casino games. It's just unfortunate that he's not a real person and just a slot machine. Still after spinning the reels of this classy game, I'm convinced that the both of us could certainly have a whole lot of fun with a big pile of cash and a laptop.
What is it that I like so much about the Wizard of Odds? Well, for me it's got all the vital components that just make a slot game work. There's loads of bonus action, the pay-table pays well and the game looks good. If there was one place that I had to say it suffers, then I'd probably say that it could be a little more original – all of the features here are great, the music works, the animations are fast and smooth, but there's nothing here that's really that new when compared to many of the other slots out there, such as the Net Entertainments titles.
Still, you've got a big load of winning chances here with the Wizard of Odds. You've got to love the high production values, with that little picture of a wizard's tower in the background, and the bonus game is a lot of fun. Even though this machine is taking a little bit of every play to put aside for the one almighty progressive jackpot, you won't notice this reduction in winning potential on your regular spins. Definitely one to try, and who knows, it might make your regular list. A very good slot machine that's a lot of fun. Well done Mazooma.
