Legacy of Oz Review
A follow up to the successful slot title, Book of Oz, from Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios, Legacy of Oz Hyperspins is an invitation from the developers to explore a new version of the original slot. With slight adjustments, this fantasy film themed game still retains all of the original features. You have the free spins round with an expanding symbol and the single-reel respin invention is still very much at the heart of this release.

Legacy of Oz Bonus Features
Legacy of Oz isn’t a distant departure from the original Book of Oz release. It has all the recognisable bonus features and kudos to the developer for saving the hit respin element, renamed to Hyperspins in this edition. Budget permitting, you can still respin individual reels to complete winning combinations. If you’re not familiar with the original gameplay, it’s a classic ‘book of’ type of slot where a free spins bonus round comes with a special expanding symbol selected by the book. Retriggers offer extra free spins and new expanding symbols, but here comes the twist, in this revamp, you only need 2 scatters to make it happen.
Wilds and Scatters
The same book symbol represents both wilds and scatters in Legacy of Oz. As a wild, it substitutes for all paying symbols to build winning combinations. As a scatter, the book is the key to unlocking the free spins bonus feature. You’ll also land a win of 200x your stake for 3 scatters that show up anywhere on the reels.
In the base game only, at the end of each spin, you can choose to respin any reel using the Hyperspins feature and complete a potential winning combination.<.strong> You’re free to respin any reel as many times as you wish, but it will cost you, so watch the price of each respin. If price is not a concern, then you’ll especially benefit from this feature when trying to gather a sufficient amount of scatters for triggering the bonus round.
The free spins bonus round, complete with an expanding symbol, starts with you landing 3 or more scatters. You’ll get 8, 12 or 20 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 book scatters respectively and a special symbol selected at the start of the round will act as an expanding symbol. Each time it hits the reels, it will expand to cover an entire reel to help complete a win. Retriggering the round with another 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters awards an extra 4, 8, 12 or 20 free spins respectively, along with a new expanding symbol.
Legacy of Oz Jackpot
Legacy of Oz is not a jackpot slot, but it comes with a decent payout preset to award a max win of 5,000x your stake if you can fill the reels with the dashing wizard symbols.
RTP and Volatility
Just like its younger sibling, Legacy of Oz Hyperspins is set to high volatility, but the RTP rate has dropped a little to 96.11% from 96.31%. Nonetheless, it’s still above the industry average so both stats are looking strong.
Where to Play Legacy of Oz
