Wicked Riches slot is actually fully known as The Wizard of Oz Wicked Riches. Centred on the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz story, this game has a slightly darker feel than other Wizard of Oz games. Thirty paylines are all fixed but wagering has been made easy with only five choices at the bottom of the reels. The five reels also only have three symbols per reel, making Wicked Riches slot a simple one to work out. This is a game that will not intimidate beginners. Advanced players however may be looking for something a bit more in terms of special features.
Wicked Riches slot is a simple slot to look at. It does not have very many symbols on the screen and those that are there are simply drawn and not in 3D. The reels have been designed to look like actual mechanical reels which could be found on all of the old school brick and mortar slot machines. Four jackpots sit above the reels which are set in a dark purple forest somewhere in the Land of Oz. All player info and betting options are laid out very clearly at the bottom of the reels in no nonsense buttons. The soundtrack is typical online slots Australia machine sounds until the rather crazy sounding witch chimes in.
Wicked Witchy Symbols
All of the symbols in Wicked Riches slot are theme based and have to do with the green skinned lunatic witch.
