Scientific Games Corporation (Scientific Games or the company) launched MUNCHKINLAND, the newest game in its successful THE WIZARD OF OZ slot series based on the classic 1939 movie.
This game features the characters and classic scenes from the iconic film including the famous Munchkins. MUNCHKINLAND is the first WIZARD OF OZ slot to utilize 3D rendered characters, including the first-ever appearance of The Wicked Witch of the East, as an integral part of the game's features and bonuses.
Showcased on the immersive Gamefield 2.0 cabinet, MUNCHKINLAND is a 5-reel, 50-line slot with a life-changing "There's No Place Like Home" wide area progressive jackpot, and two central game features. The Witch Feature stars The Wicked Witch of the East, who will randomly fly over the base game display and cast a spell on the reels, possibly expanding them up to 12 rows! During the feature, Witch Wild reels may be added, increasing the chance of a big win. If Tornado Wild reels are added, the reels switch to Lollipop Wilds displaying credit prizes and jackpots that add up for a sweet reward.
The Munchkin Parade Bonus, triggered by three or more bonus symbols, begins with a wheel spin where character wedges award a corresponding jackpot and an additional spin, and free spin wedges can award up to 20 free spins. During the free spins, parading Munchkins can award up to three active enhancements, such as Wild reels, multipliers, and credit prize Lollipop Wilds.
