The Wiz slot review (Elk Studios)
The Wiz is an online slot of our beloved Elk Studios
This video slot, which has 178 paylines and a payout rate of 96.1%, features an old, wise wizard as the main character.
He helps you, along with his mate, the red dragon, to get sky-high payouts, which can amount to 5,000 x the total bet.
A new release of Elk Studios is almost always worthwhile, and since this is Elk’s first new slot for 2019, we were more than excited.
How does The Wiz slot work?
The Wiz is played on 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols. Winning combinations occur when symbols from left to right touch each other. This system creates a hybrid form of paylines with a win all ways feature, resulting in 178 ways to win. Elk Studios applied this concept before, for example, to the slots Hidden and Wild Toro.
Bet sizes vary from $€ 0.20 per spin to a maximum of $€ 100 per spin.
The variance of The Wiz is medium to high. A maximum bet can lead to a win of $€ 500,000 in one spin.
Symbols and payouts
What belongs in a slot about an old magician and his dragon?
Indeed, magic wands, magic potions, mysterious powders and mystifying boxes.
The premium symbols consist of the sun, the moon, the box and the absinthe-like bright green drink. These are worth between 3 x and 10 x worth the total bet, for a 5-of-a-kind.
The low paying symbols consist of all kinds of silver frills: these symbols award you for 5-of-a-kind, 0.40 x to 0.50 x the bet.
All symbols can occur in stacks, so it is possible to make multiple winning combinations.
Wild dragons with multipliers
The dragon is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols except the scatters. Also, it provides an extra multiplier of 2 x to 5 x. Multiple dragons that are part of a winning combination lead to even higher multipliers.
And that’s where the enormous potential for big winnings lies hidden.
Free Spins Bonus: up to 10 Whiz Spins
2 or more scattered wizards activate the free spins bonus:
- 2 wizards: 1 Whiz Spins
- 3 wizards: 5 Whiz Spins
- 4 wizards: 7 Whiz Spins
- 5 wizards: 10 Whiz Spins
All low paying symbols replace the high paying symbols during the Whiz Spins, which amounts to possible more significant prices.
But there is more: Wilds that appear on the reels entitle you to a free respin. In that respin, the wild moves a spot to the left on the reels. As soon as there are no more wilds on the reels, the respins are over, and you return to the regular free spins.
Every scatter that appears on the screen during the free spins award you +1 free spins.
What is our verdict on The Wiz slot machine?
The Wiz did not live up to its expectations.
The game certainly offers an opportunity to win big. However, the game becomes more lucrative during the Whiz Spins, the free spins bonus.
Then you can win great prizes, but that is mainly a matter of spinning some dragons next to or close to each other.
Graphically The Wiz is a stunning slot; this is an Elk Studios slot, after all.
Nice, but not breathtaking. We invite you to see for yourself what you make of it.
3.5 star out of 5.
