Free Book of Oz Lock n Spin slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Book of Oz Lock'n Spin slot by Just For The Win is quite simply a copy of the original Book of Oz Respin slot with a few changes, in a similar way that Triple Edge Studios also reworked the old volatile classic BDBA with the subsequent Break da Bank Again Respins version. The reels sit inside jade pillars in front of a stained glass window and we play to a soundtrack of quite pleasant but mysterious music. The word 'Book' in the title gives us a clue as where we're at with this slot, so we know the damage that can be done to our bankroll here.
On The Reels...
There's a 10-line grid over 5 reels of 3 rows each on Book of Oz Lock'n Spin slot with exactly the same pays as the old Book of Ra Deluxe. All symbols are single, Wild Books appear on all reels and substitute as scatters too with 500x the top 5-of-a-kind pay, in this instance the Magician. The Golden Lion awards 200x, Red or Pink Bottles 75x with the five card values at 15x for A or K down to 10x for the Q, J or 10. Wilds only pay as scatters and all 5 in view pays a nice 200x bet and you need 3,4 or 5 for the bonus trigger.
You receive the usual 10 spins for 3 scatters, 4 will award 12 free games plus all 5 of them will hand you the maximum 25. When you land them, the Book flicks through the pages pages stopping on one of the 9 standard symbols to be an expanding scatter pay for the duration of the spins. Retriggers are possible as per above quantities with the best win being 5,000x bet if you get a full screen of the Magician icon. You also get one chance before the games start to change the symbol selected in the Book if you fancy a different challenge, i.e. a more or less volatile one.
The game has Microgaming's respin feature where you can buy a spin on just one reel if you choose for a fixed cost displayed which is reflective of the odds. Useful if 2 scatters are in view say and you need a feature but beware! it can be expensive.
Book of Oz Lock'n Spin slot - how is it different to Book of Oz Respins, you ask? Well on that game you simply picked a reel paid the cost to respin it while the other 4 automatically held. Here you can actually lock 1 to 4 reels in place, including those already displaying a win, i.e. the first 3 or 4 reels, then only the ones you don't pay for are respun! You can't use it in the free games obviously and the cost of locking the reels can be very expensive if you pick 3 or 4 which have a win or a likely to make up a big win eventually. The looks and sounds are very good and the RTP varies slightly from 96% to around 97% depending on how you play it. One thing I do know is that you should lock your wallet after loading up this game if you intend to repsin here...
