Loosely based on the Wizard of Oz, Sisters of Oz from Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios is a fixed jackpot slot that stars 4 modern-looking witches that don’t look a thing like the witches from the classic movie. Set against a backdrop of the famous Yellow Brick Road, the slot features jumbo symbol blocks, free spins, and 4 fixed jackpots. The biggest jackpot is 10,000x the stake, not too shabby for a medium-volatility slot.
Sisters of Oz is a 5-reel, 4-row, 20-payline jackpot slot that’s playable on all devices. Bets range from $.20 to $25 and the RTP is slightly below average at 95.83%.
Symbols include 5 low-paying bottles of potion in various shapes and colors and 4 high-paying witches: red, purple, green, and blue. 5 witches in a row are worth between 2-18x the stake. The witch symbols can land on the reels in 3 sizes: 1x2, 1x3, and 1x4. There is also a golden book symbol that acts as both the scatter and wild.
During the base game, the middle 3 reels can randomly synchronize and spin together. Any high-paying symbols spin as jumbo 3x4 blocks.
When 3 or more scatters land on the reels, players are rewarded 5, 7, or 10 free spins. During every free spin, the 3 middle reels are synchronized so only jumbo blocks land. If the scatter lands on reels 1 and 5 at the same time, players win an additional 3 free spins. All line wins are doubled during this round.
During the base game or bonus round, bonus symbols can randomly appear over regular symbols. These bonus symbols are collected, and players have the chance to spin the jackpot wheel. The jackpot wheel consists of 12 segments and 1 of 4 jackpots is guaranteed: the Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega. Respectively, they are worth 15x, 50x, 500x, and 10,000x the stake. Winning the Mega jackpot is the ultimate goal of the game.
Sisters of Oz is visually dazzling but also a bit of a strange take on a beloved movie, turning a true family theme into something more R-rated with its scantily-clad witches. There’s a lot more flash than substance, unfortunately, though for jackpot hunters, that might not matter. Certainly, the Mega jackpot worth 10,000x the stake has substance behind it and can be worth the foray onto the Yellow Brick Road. Sisters of Oz is available at Microgaming online casinos.
