Everyone loves a good mystery, if only because there are so many unknown elements for you to uncover – and that can be true for any form of entertainment that you blend the genre into. Case in point: The Wiz slot game by ELK Studios is an intriguing slot that has managed to capture the imagination of the masses.
Today, we’re going to see whether or not their magic has worked on us.
The 5×4 reel slot layout allows the board to really shine with some unique looking symbols, but the backdrop never loses its shine either. There are 178 ways to walk away with a victory in The Wiz slot game and that, in itself, is enough of a reason to celebrate.
ELK have gone all out with the theming and you can see that through the symbols with the following making an appearance: spoons, keys, brooches, rings, potions, moons, treasure chests and the all-important sun.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is important and we all know why by now, as it can determine whether or not you find consistent success or failure within the context of your gaming experience. The Wiz slot game isn’t immune to that kind of scrutiny with the reported RTP coming in at between 96.01% and 96.10%. That’s considered to be slightly below the standard average but with medium volatility, with some suggesting it could even be ranked as “high”, this one really is quite unpredictable with regards to your possible earnings.
You can bet with a nice range of money here from a minimum stake of 20p to a maximum of £100, and with potential winnings of 5,000x your initial stake on the table, you really don’t have that much to lose.
As mystical as the setting of this slot actually is against the back of an almighty Hogwarts-esque castle, we also think the soundtrack makes it quite relaxing – as if we’re heading out on some kind of quest.
The wild symbol is the dragon and can replace all other symbols outside of the scatter, which is the wizard himself.
The Wild Multiplier feature gives you the chance to have as much as a 5x multiplier on any spin, whereas the Wizspins Bonus Game feature is triggered by landing two or more scatters. You will receive up to 10 free spins with the wizard being the mastermind behind that success, and in addition to all of that, the dragon can transform into a walking wild which gives you even more opportunities for success.
The Wiz slot game takes us on an adventure that we don’t really want to end and that, above all else, is the sort of compliment all providers should be searching for. They stick to the theming, they provide decent potential winnings without too much of a risk and the bonus features are simple yet elegant.
All in all, it’s a solid effort from ELK Studios.
