Coyote Moon Online Slot by IGT Review
Coyote Moon is a slot with 40 paylines and 5 reels developed by IGT. The slot comes with Scatter and Wild symbols, free spins and bonus winnings. After activating the bonus round you can get additional free spins and payouts. Five Wild symbols generate the maximum win of 20,000 credits.
Three Scatter symbols award you 5 free spins and the reward twice your total bet. Free spins are played in the Autoplay mode. They involve the line bet and the number of paylines from the last spin in the main game. In the Coyote Moon Free Spins bonus game, all symbols change their appearance, but the theoretical return to player (RTP) remains the same. The Scatter changes its colour and turns into a green iguana. It appears only on the second, third and fourth reels. If you manage to collect three green iguanas, you get 5 additional free spins. You also get another payout twice your total bet. You can collect free spins with no limit.
When you run out of free spins, all your winnings are added up and credited to your balance. After that, you return to the main game and can continue playing.
Symbols and multipliers of the Coyote Moon slot
There are two special symbols with bonus features — the Scatter and the Wild. Open the pay table in the Pays section at any time between reel-spins to learn more about these symbols.
The Scatter — a red iguana that appears only on the second, third and fourth reels. By collecting three symbols, you get 5 free spins and a payout of two times your total bet.
The Wild symbol — a coyote howling at the moon. The coyote appears on all the reels, helping to create or increase winning combinations. When appearing along a line with identical symbols, it replaces any regular picture except the Scatter. For example, hummingbirds are along the seventh line on the first, second and third reels — it is counted as a combination of three hummingbirds and pays you 25 times your line bet. If the Wild symbol appears on the fourth reel, it awards you 100 times your line bet as for a combination of four hummingbirds.
When a combination of Wilds comes up starting from the leftmost reel and no higher-paying combination is along a payline, it earns you:
- 3 coyotes — 50 times the line bet
- 4 coyotes — 200
- 5 coyotes — 1,000
Symbols that earn payouts are visually subdivided into two categories — icons themed to a desert and playing cards. All combinations start with three symbols along a line.
For three, four or five playing cards, you get: Nine, Ten, Jack and Queen — 5, 20 and 100 times the line bet and King or Ace — 5, 50 and 150.
For three, four or five symbols with pictures, you get: skull, lizard — 20, 75 and 250 times the line bet, hummingbirds and deer — 25, 100 and 400.
After loading the Coyote Moon slot, you get 1,000 credits in your balance that are displayed in the Balance window. They are used to make bets and pay for spins as well as to pay out prizes. Your balance is reset once you reload the page, no matter how many credits are left.
Before the first spin you can adjust the bet on a line and the number of paylines. You can change the bet on a line using the -/+ buttons in Line Bet section. The minimum value is 1 credit, the maximum is 20 credits. The line bet affects both the payouts for winning combinations and the total bet.
Use the -/+ buttons in Lines section to raise or lower the number of paylines. The slot comes with 40 paylines. According to the rules of the Coyote Moon slot listed in the Pays section, only combinations along paylines pay.
In addition, there are other conditions to get winnings for combos:
- A combination consists of at least three identical symbols
- They are along a payline and start from the leftmost reel
- They are on adjacent reels
Your win is calculated with the following formula: the multiplier of a symbol applied to the line bet. Combinations of different lengths have unique multipliers. You can see them all in the Pays section.
Click the Spin button to start the reels. After that, they perform one spin and the slot will automatically calculate the win for all lines, mark it on the reels and add the sum to your balance. There is another way — auto spins. You need to click the Auto Spin button and in a pop-up menu choose the number of auto spins. In both cases the values of Lines and Bet Line, which were set by you or are there by default, are used.
The total bet, which is displayed in the Total Bet window, also depends on the values of Lines and Bet Line. This is the cost of one spin of the reels, that is, the number of credits deducted from your balance for a spin.
Clicking the button with the image of a wrench opens the setting menu of the visual effects of the Coyote Moon slot. There you can set the graphics quality optimal for the speed of your Internet connection.
