There’s No Place Like Home For The Holidays, But These New Slots Come Close

Written By Susan Brady on November 29, 2017 - Last Updated on December 4, 2017

Head to the realm of fantasy with two new slots available this week at NJ online casinos.

L. Frank Baum’s famous book is the inspiration for Wizard of Oz Road to Emerald City. This is the seventh slot in the Wizard of Oz series by WMS Gaming, and features all your favorite characters, as well as some pretty fantastical bonuses.

You can also ramp up for the pageantry of Christmas with Secrets of Christmas, based on our love of the mythical Santa Claus and his famous workshop in the North Pole. Maybe if you’ve been good, Santa will bring you a nice present!

Follow the yellow brick road

Join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and even the Wicked Witch in this new edition to the Wizard of Oz slot series. Unlike previous editions, this has a unique reel set. With only three reels and three rows, there are fewer symbols, including bar, double and triple bar, and a 7, some of which feature a 2x multiplier or an emerald.

The emerald serves as the Scatter symbol, while the WoO logo and our fearsome foursome are the Wilds.

Land four of the emerald Scatters to trigger the bonus features, of which there are an amazing 7:

Glinda Booster, Dorothy Free Spins, Lion Multiplier, Tin Man Winning Spin, Crow Prizes, Wicked Witch Free Spins, and Toto’s Emerald Trail.

This final bonus provides an unlimited number of free spins where you collect emeralds for  additional prizes.

The round will only end after three rounds without the emeralds and a winning combination. So follow the yellow brick road to your emerald fortune…


The stats

  • 3 reels/9 paylines
  • Wilds and Double Up Bonuses
  • 7 Bonus Games

  • Bets: $.35 to $70
  • RTP: 96%
  • Available at: Pala

Secrets of Christmas

What will Santa bring you?

Step into this old-timey postcard setting where reel symbols include wreaths and garlands, stockings (hung by the chimney with care), gingerbread houses, and even cookies and milk for jolly old St. Nick. The reels are set on a winter background, complete with snowflakes falling and happy little tune in the background.

You will find the traditional Wild and Scatter symbols, the latter of which can earn you a place in the Free Spins round. Before the bonus round begins, you have the chance to pick from 20 Christmas gifts to win bonuses.Secrets of Christmas

The number of gifts corresponds to the number of Scatters on the reels. Bonuses include 2-10 additional free spins, additional multipliers, Wild reels, and the transformation of bells and candles into Wild symbols on spins.

When the Free Spins begin, you can sing along to “Jingle Bells” while the credits just keep rolling in. While there is no re-spin feature, the addition of the bonus gift prizes more than makes up for it.


The stats

  • 5 reels/25 paylines
