Following on from the wildly popular first series of 'colossal reels slots' from WMS, the Wizards theme is one of the first in a range of follow-up games. It was released in 2012, but most casinos got them in 2013.
As with the first series of colossal reels slots, the game relies on a single, classic main window (5 reel video slot) and a second giant reel to the right hand side of that, which has 100 pay-lines.
One of the first casinos to see the new range of colossal reels games machines in Las Vegas was New York New York.
The first machines were placed quite close to the door but towards the back, near the Sports Book and more followed very quickly. It didn't take long after that for all the major casinos to add the games, as they became so popular.and you will now find them everywhere.
So how does Colossal Wizards and these other games in the second series of WMS slots with huge reels differ from the first range in this series of games?
Mainly, the big difference is in the bonus round. Unlike the first games in the series, the bonus round is a standard free spins, with no multipliers (as seen in Van Helsing and Forbidden Dragons) or the nudging wilds features (as seen in Lil Red Riding Hood Slots and Spartacus Slots).
What you do get though, is a chance to hit a 100 free spin bonus. Although we didn't actually hit the bonus when we played the game, we did see others hitting it and they seemed to average 20+ free spins each time it hit.
So, you can get a pretty handsome pay-out if you do manage to hit the bonus round.
