The Moon Shadow Slot, A New Release From Barcrest Worthy Of Your Attention
Barcrest, one of your favorite suppliers of online video slots, has recently released a new titile, the game which goes by the name of Moon Shadow.
Details about the slot
The game is nocturne by nature: the backdrop is a moony night and the symbols you find on the reels, apart from the letters, are the owl, the wolf howling at the moon, the beautiful Queen of the Full Moon (personal interpretation, you can come up with an opinion of your own), the night flower. The sounds and music that come with such a theme fit the Moon Shadow slot gameplay like a glove. A dark glove, of course. The game itself has a 5×3 reel layout with 10 fixed paylines. However, there is a catch here: as with some other Barcrest titles, you can double the number of paylines and make it 20 by hitting the Big Bet Feature. However, it comes at a price: for example, 5 Big bet spins will cost you around £2. On the other hand, you have twice as many chances to win, so there is no reason to complain.
Moon Shadow with 10 free spins
What is interesting about Moon Shadow online slot is the way the free spins round works. You trigger it by landing 3 Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. For starters, you get 10 free spins. Pretty usual, right? But here is the thing: before you start spinning those reels at the casino’s expense, the wild symbol for the round is picked at random. And this is when you start seeing the lowest paying symbols – Q, K, A – in the new (moon) light. Since they are the most frequent occupants of spots on the reels, you wish the Great Random to pick any of them as a wild for the free spins round and not some fancy picture symbol. The only way to add more free spins to your count while you are there is to have scatters on reel 5. This gives you 4 to 8 extra chances to pocket big wins.
Varying RTP at the slot
Another interesting thing about Moon Shadow online slot game is the varying RTP. With regular 10 payline mode, you get from 96.07% to 98.01% depending on how much you have bet. When you enter the Big Bet mode, the RTP goes up to 98.01%. All in all, the game is interesting to play, and the original features can keep you in for quite a long time. Not to mention the Queen of the Full Moon, who is capable of making you come back to this video slot time and again.
