Appearance and Sound Effects
The Wizard of Oz – Road to Emerald City features a beautiful background that makes you feel as though you're standing on the Yellow Brick Road itself. There are fields of poppies and wildflowers, edged by forests, and at the top-left of the screen, there's the game logo accompanied by Dorothy's ruby slippers.
Across the top of the reels, there are seven images featuring the key characters from the iconic MGM movie – Toto, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, Dorothy, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good Witch.
The reel set is propped up by a white picket fence, and this is where you'll find the paytable symbols which are a mix of Oz-inspired images and fruit machine symbols such as 7s, Bars, the game logo, and emeralds.
The soundtrack features original music from the 1939 film, including "Over the Rainbow" and "We're Off to See the Wizard".
Bonuses and Special Features
The Emerald City acts as the wild symbol and can substitute for all other symbols except the 2x multiplier and Emerald.
The 2x multipliers can sometimes accompany the paytable symbols to help boost your wins. The same applies to the overlay Emeralds except instead of boosting wins, they trigger the bonus game when they appear on all three reels.
