About Wizard of Odds
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.
