Wizard of the Woods online slot is a collaborative title by Microgaming and 2By2 Gaming. The slot transports you to a wondrous forest with glowing fairy lights and lush greenery.  The slot’s symbols are magical objects and beings, telling the story of the wizard’s quest to battle dark magic. There aren’t many bells and whistles here, the gameplay is uncomplicated with an interesting bonus game and you will conjure up free spins to help you stave off the darkness.

Game Symbols

  • J to A card royal icons make up the lower value symbols.
  • The high-value symbols are represented as a cluster of purple gems, a potion bottle, a wizard’s staff, a mystical white deer, a forest elf, and the game’s titular wizard.
  • The wild is a green orb in a strange metallic setting and stands in for any symbol except for the scatter.
  • The scatter is the word “bonus” with a red rose behind it and will trigger free spins.

Bonus Features

Free Spins

If 3 scatters land on reels 2, 3, and 4, you will instantly receive 10 free spins, and the likelihood of activating the Wizard Magic bonus feature will increase considerably. This feature can be retriggered to gain additional free spins.

Wizard Magic

The wizard magic feature activates when a stack of wilds lands on the 3rd reel. The wizard materializes before you, hand outstretched, displaying a rotating collection of all the game symbols.  The game will choose 1 or 2 symbols and convert all of the corresponding symbols on the reels into wilds. This feature may also result in you just being award 10x your stake without the symbol conversion.

Our Verdict

Wizard of the Woods ticks all the boxes to make an adequate slot but more adventurous players may find it lacking in the features department. The slot itself is pleasing to the senses, with an enjoyable soundtrack and well-designed symbols and background graphics. The Wizard Magic feature, in particular, offers the best use of visuals and animation in the game. From a gameplay perspective, there are no unusual or novel features to complicate your experience. The Wizard Magic feature combined with fee spins holds the most potential as wild symbols carry the most weight in this title and having reels mostly filled with them will pay you out handsomely.  

If you’re on the hunt for thrills and spills, this might not be your thing. When it comes to magical excitement this slot is less Lord of the Rings and more Wizard of Oz.
