Microgaming Launches the Sequel to Its Popular Book of Oz Game

The leading developer of online casino content Microgaming has announced the launch of their new Book of Oz Lock ‘N Spin video slot game.

This fresh release was developed exclusively for the renowned developer by their partners at Triple Edge Studios, an independent gaming studio whose portfolio includes such popular titles as Wicked Tales: Dark Red, Action Ops: Snow and Sable and Playboy Gold.

Another Exciting Addition to the Offer

Book of Oz Lock ‘N Spin video slot is the latest installment of the company’s popular Book of Oz series, launched in December last year. This brand new slot game has a standard five-reel three-row layout and offers all the usual magic of the original game, including high variance, but also some new and exciting features, including the Hyperspin Lock ‘N Spin and 2nd Chance games.

The Hyperspins Lock ‘N Spin feature can be triggered in the Main Game, allowing players to lock up to four reels and respin, which can help them complete more winning combinations and increase the size of their prizes, or even trigger the game’s Free Spins round. This feature can also help players make the most out the Book Scatter symbols and lead to handsome payouts.

We should point out that the Book symbol serves as both a Wild and a Scatter. Landing at least 3 of a kind will activate the Free Spins feature, awarding players 10, 12 or 25 spins depending on the number of symbols used to unlock the round. The Book of Oz offers a special symbol that has the power to expand on the reels during the Free Spins round, significantly improving the game’s win potential.

Once the Free Spin round begins, players will be able to use the new 2nd Chance feature. This feature allows them to keep the original symbol or reshuffle it, which can give them the chance to upgrade their expanding symbol. The special expanding symbol can prove to be extremely lucrative as it sees the win potential rise up to 5,000 times the original wager. Land 3 or more Book symbols during the Free Spins to add more spin to your count.

Looking Forward to a Ton of Fun

The magic of Book of Oz Lock ‘N Spin is waiting for you at any online casinos powered by Microgaming.

Commenting on the launch of the new game, James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations at Microgaming said that following the success of the hugely popular Book of Oz, Triple Edge Studios had successfully created an enchanting sequel in Book of Oz Lock ‘N Spin.

He pointed out the new release was elevating the original with even more exciting and rewarding features, including Hyperspins Lock ‘N Spin and 2nd Chance feature within free spins, high-volatility action and the potential for great rewards.

Brendan Walton, Design Lead at Triple Edge Studios stated the team at Triple Edge Studios had loved creating Book of Oz Lock ‘N Spin, producing another visually stunning and feature-packed game. Walton pointed out the new features would provide another dimension of appeal to the overall gameplay, offering players a highly entertaining experience and great win potential.

The new game comes only a couple of days after Microgaming announced the closure of its poker network.
