The Wiz Review

Released January 2019

The Wiz can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of The Wiz is 3.99%.

The Wiz is made up of 5 reels, each one 4 symbols high. There are no traditional paylines, instead there are win ways, with 178 in total.

Special Symbols

Wild – The “Dragon” is the Wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except the Free Spins symbol. The “Dragon” wild symbols come with a multiplier ranging from x2 to x5. The value of the multiplier is randomly assigned.

Free Spins – The “Wizard” is the game’s Free Spins symbol. 2 or more “Wizard” symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the game’s Free Spins feature.

Bonus Features

Free Spins – The number of “Wizard” Free Spins symbols you reveal on a single spin will determine the number of free spins that you are awarded. 2 “Wizard” symbols earns 1 free spin; 3 “Wizard” symbols earns you 5 free spins; 4 “Wizard” symbols earns you 7 free spins; 5 “Wizard” symbols earns you 10 free spins.

During the Free Spins all low value symbols swap to their respective high value symbols.

Walking Multiplier Wild – During the Free Spins the Wild “Dragon” symbol will move one reel to the left with each spin until it leaves the reels.

Closing Thoughts

The Wiz is an excellent looking game, filled with detailed symbols, set against an idyllic fantasy themed background. There are wizards, dragons and various enchanted looking symbols that all help to make for a game that is a real feast for they eye. Disappointingly there are few features to help match the game’s visual qualities. You have free spins and wilds with a few additional features within the free spins, making this a game that fails to reach its potential by a fair distance. The house edge is a little higher than we would want it to be, which means that there is better value on offer than we are getting here. However, as with all Elk games, our biggest criticism has to be with the “Advanced Betting Strategies that are on offer. The reality is that they offer no advantage over a system of flat betting. In fact, if you increase your bet, you’re more likely to lose money than you are to make any. This is poor practice, and it drags everything positive about the game down. We would be highly critical of any website offering bogus betting strategies so a game developer doing this is even more problematic for us. I would obviously score This Wiz much more favourably if those “betting strategies” were removed.
