Stories of witchcraft and wizardry have long been entrenched in folklore. From Merlin to Potter, Gandalf to Oz, magical mages have led us through stories of fantasy, betrayal, survival and rescue. From legends of literature, to starring on the silver screen, the wizard has been a mainstay in fantasy culture for centuries. Given the everlasting popularity of the evergreen enchanters, it is perhaps no surprise that wizard-themed slots have become so universally favoured. Here, we conjure up a review of five of the best wizard slots around!
Fire Blaze: Blue Wizard Megaways
Fire Blaze: Blue Wizard got the Megaways makeover in 2021 and quickly became one of the most popular games on Casino.com. The game is set in an enchanted forest, eerily lit by a full moon in the background. The artwork is complemented by a wistful soundtrack to create an almost spooky atmosphere.
The gameplay is slightly different to the usual Megaways offering as there are only five reels. This does not detract from the enjoyment of the game, as there are still up to 12,348 paylines and a healthy 96.47% RTP. In addition to this there are bonus features, free games and free spins to keep things interesting.

Fire Blaze: Red Wizard
Fire Blaze: Red Wizard offers a fiery alternative to his blue cousin. In this red-hot offering from RareStone, the forest is given a foreboding red glow to set a rather spectral tone. The artwork consists of varying shades or red and purple to leave you in no doubt that maleficence is in the air!
Whilst the artwork may suggest maleficence, the gameplay does not! Here, the eponymous Red Wizard dons a red cloak and is the game’s wild symbol. There are also potion, raven and spell book symbols which can have varying pay-out’s for matching 3, 4 or 5. Of more interest, perhaps, are the Flaming Ball and Castle symbols. Match 7 or more Flaming Balls to ignite the Fire Blaze respin feature, while you need match just 3 or more Castles to trigger the free game feature.

The Pig Wizard
We have had boy wizards, great wizards, strange wizards, grey wizards and white wizards. Now, thanks to Blueprint Gaming, we finally have a pig wizard! The Pig Wizard is another edition in the developer’s ever popular “Jackpot King” series, and offers up a meaty 10,000x maximum win.
Our porky protagonist does not just offer a healthy maximum win! This fun slot also boasts four different bonus games for your enjoyment. There are enchanted mirrors, magic spells, spinning dice and even a porcine interpretation of Deal or No Deal!

In Lucky Wizard, Red Tiger have reimagined the traditional Irish leprechaun as a green robed wizard. As is to be expected from a Red Tiger game, the graphics here are top-notch with bright colours and high definition characters. The soundtrack perfectly aligns with the theme of the game, giving it a fun, playful feel.
The symbols reflect the fusion of leprechaun and wizard mythology, so expect to see lucky horseshoes and four leaf clovers alongside spell books and magic hats. Four bonus features are available, which offer lucky reels, nudges and swaps, as well as random wilds.

The Wizard of Oz
We travel from the Emerald Isle to the Emerald City for our final slot, as we’re off the see the wizard, to the wonderful Wizard of Oz! Developers, SG, have remastered the classic WMS game here to bring you back to the Yellow Brick Road. Characters from the classic movie are present here – both the good and the bad – from Dorothy to the Tin Man to The Wicked Witch of the West (and her rather more amiable sister, Glinda)
This is a fun game as you stroll down memory lane with the characters and story you remember from childhood. It comes with a potential 5,000x maximum win, two fun bonus games and a free spins feature. The Wizard of Oz may not offer the most advanced graphics on this list, but it does give us the iconic characters and story that we are all familiar with.
|Year of Release||2022|
|Bonus Features||Bonus Rounds, Free Spins|
