Slot Description & SuperBet Option
Gypsy Moon is a 5 reels and 3 rows slot which will be available on desktop, tablet as well as most other mobile devices. The game’s theme is about a fortune teller and mystic arts. The background shows a full moon on a clear night sky. The min and max bets players can lay – range from €1 to €3000, depending on the currency played. When it comes to paylines the game has initially 30 fixed lines. However there is a Super Bet option which makes Gypsy Moon a 243 payline slot. Activating the Super Bet Option will also increase the min bets players can lay. In other words you have to pay more to play with 243 lines.
The symbols on the reels are all theme related. The high value symbols feature a full moon, a spell book, a crystal ball, Tarot cards and a green medallion. The low value symbols are represented by candle, mirror, necklace, rose and ring. The scatter symbol is an astrological chart. The wild symbol depicts the fortune teller herself. The wild can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
The game has one main feature which is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters on consecutive reels starting with the leftmost reel. After the Free Spins are triggered the player is presented with 4 options, which change depending on how many scatter symbols were on the reels when the bonus was triggered. Player choices do not affect payback.
For 3 scatters the options are:
- 30 Free Spins with 1x multiplier
- 15 Free Spins with 2x multiplier
- 10 Free Spins with 3x multiplier
- 7 Free Spins with 5x multiplier
For 4 scatters the options are:
- 40 Free Spins with 1x multiplier
- 20 Free Spins with 2x multiplier
- 15 Free Spins with 3x multiplier
- 9 Free Spins with 5x multiplier
For 5 scatters the option are:
- 60 Free Spins with 1x multiplier
- 30 Free Spins with 2x multiplier
- 20 Free Spins with 3x multiplier
- 14 Free Spins with 5x multiplier
Free Spins Retrigger Option
The Free Spins Bonus is retriggered when three, four, or five Bonus scatter symbols appear anywhere on consecutive reels starting with the leftmost reel. Each Free Spins Bonus retrigger allows the player to choose the number of additional free spins and the set of random multipliers for the additional Free Spins Bonus round. Win up to 500 free spins per transaction. If the number of free spins awarded is greater than 440 and the trigger combination appears again, only the Scatter win is awarded and all remaining selections are cancelled. Reels used in the Free Spins Bonus are different from the reels used in the base game. Free spins are played at the same coin value and same number of paylines or 243 ways as the triggering spin.
Gypsy Moon is high volatility game with an RTP of 96.18%. The max win on the base game, as well as the free spins, is caped at 25000000. Even though the free spins are difficult to trigger, the base game has the potential to also pay out big. All in all, the slot has the potential, we can only wait and see if it will or not become the next success story for IGT Gaming.
