How to control the Moonshine slot

Slot developers have equipped this model with two kinds of control panel: basic and Expert. By default the slot is loaded with the basic control panel.

You can change any current parameters:

  • The number of lines in the range of 1 to 25. By using the Select Lines button you choose the required number
  • You can change the bet per line in the range of 1 to 5 coins. You can do it by using the Select Coins button
  • You can configure the coin value in the range of 0.01 to 1 credits. You choose a value by using the '-' and '+' buttons found under the icon of a coin with a figure

The total bet is calculated by multiplying the number of active paylines by the bet per line, you can see it in the Bet section.

The Demo Credits and Win windows display the current balance and the current size of your prizes respectively.

You can start the slot with the basic panel by using one of the two buttons:

  • Spin — a manual single spin with the chosen parameters
  • Bet Max — activates a spin with the maximum bet per line and the number of active paylines

To activate auto spins you need to switch the panel to the Expert mode. Here you can see the Autoplay button that allows you to launch a series of auto spins. The functionality of the Expert mode is identical to the basic one.

You can see a detailed description of icons and multipliers of the slot in the View Payout section.

Symbols and multipliers of the Moonshine slot

Developers at Microgaming have introduced three bonus icons to the slot:

  • The Wild symbol is the picture of an old lady. This icon can turn into any other regular symbols and form winning combinations of its own. A combination of 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these icons increases your line bet 5, 50, 1,000 and 8,000 times respectively
  • Scatter is the picture of a Sheriff. This symbol can award you prizes regardless its position in the boxes. The Scatter multiplier applies to the total bet. If 3, 4 and 5 icons appear anywhere on the reels, your total bet increases 2, 25 and 60 times
  • Bonus-scatter is the picture of a bottle with the corresponding phrase. A combination of 3-5 of these symbols landed on the game screen at a time will open up the bonus round

The other icons form combinations following the common rules. To get a prize you need to catch 3-5 identical symbols on an active payline. Winning combinations are formed if you see icons in the boxes of adjacent reels starting with the first reel.

The prize size is calculated by multiplying of the line bet by a multiplier of a landed combination:

  • An old man with a pipe. A combination of 3, 4 and 5 of these icons will increase your line bet 20, 100 and 500 times respectively
  • A young man with a guitar — 15, 100 and 400
  • An Indian — 12, 80 and 200
  • A pig — 10, 50 and 100
  • A pumpkin pie — 8, 50 and 90
  • A pan of beans — 8, 25 and 80
  • A pot of sugar — 7, 15 and 60
  • A tin of sardines — 5, 15 and 50
  • Green tomatoes — 15, 12 and 40

If several combinations appear, your winnings are added up. Credits are immediately deposited into your account.

Free spins

If a combination of 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols lands, a bonus round with 3, 4 or 5 free spins and a basic x1 multiplier opens up.

After that you will see an additional window with 18 closed boxes. Most of them hide additional spins and multipliers. You improve the game conditions by choosing the icons.

Lucky users can win up to 18 free spins with multipliers up to x4. Choice of icons ends up after clicking Start Free Bonus.

Then the slot launches free spins. You can't extend the round if bonus combinations land again. The Wild symbols apply during free spins.
