SlotsMagic Casino has added a brand new online slot from Barcrest to their casino as well as a revamped old classic titled Action Bank, Moon Shadow Slot is a brand new release and features some interesting play modes and features, in regular play the slot is a 5×3 reel layout with 10 fixed paylines, with many of the new Barcrest slots they have a Big Bet Feature and Moon Shadow is no exception.
Activating the Big Bet Feature adds an additional 10 paylines to the slot making it into a 20 line fixed payline slot, this does come at a price though and for 5 Big bet spin you are looking at 10 Credits in total (5 Spins at £2 for example).
The base game is a fairly standard affair, with stacked symbols that are capable of big wins for 5 of a kind, but there are no wilds in the base game, the free spins mode is where all the real excitement is at.
Moon Shadow Free Spins Round
The Free Spins are triggered by landing 3 of the Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 which will then grant an initial 10 free spins, before the round starts a symbol from the reels is chosen at random and become a Wild for the duration of the bonus round.
The best symbols for Wild Substitutions are actually the lowest paying symbols (Q, K, A) as they are much more frequent on the reels, and this then leaves all the higher paying symbols still on the reels with these additional extra wilds.
The free spins cannot be retriggered in a normal fashion during the round, there is however, scatter symbols on reel 5 during the bonus round, if this lands in view you will be awarded between 4 and 8 additional Free Spins.
Multiple RTP levels
Dependant on which game mode you are playing, Regular 10 payline or 20 line Big Bet Mode the RTP differs slightly.
The slot lists the RTP in a range from 96.07% to 98.01% dependent on stake selected, with Big Bet mode activated the RTP is 98.01%.
This another a decent release from Barcrest and if you are fan of Wild Substitution type slots then you will enjoy the bonus round, Moon Shadow is live and playable at Slots Magic Casino.
The only oversight by Barcrest in our opinion is they haven’t included a “skip win animation” function, so it can become quite tedious waiting for all the line pays on the smaller wins to add up, the game does however does play at a reasonable pace in all other areas and is definitely worth a play.
