Moonshine is a crazy looking game, a release from Microgaming whose focus seems to be on a family of rednecks, and on their way of life and the moonshine that they produce and enjoy. It’s not the first game to do this, and it’s not the kind to offer a modern design, but it all works out inside and I’ve found it a rather charming Microgaming slot machine. It has a wild symbol, a couple of scatters and a bonus game which gives you free spins with multipliers. You’re working with 25 lines, with wins formed on them bringing you up to $40,000.
Betting and Prizes
The smallest bet that you can get away with will be set to $0.01, and it is the minimum value of one coin, sufficient to activate a payline. That’s just the minimum value though, with the maximum reaching $1. Since you can have up to 5 coins for each active line, the bet per line can reach $5, while for 25 lines it could go up to $125.
Up to $40,000 can be won in Moonshine, the reward coming from a combo of five symbols that will pay back 8,000x the line bet.
Moonshine Slot Features
Look for the Grandma symbol, the one where you see here sitting in a chair and holding a shotgun, if you’re after the big prize. This might be the wild symbol, but at the same time it can also trigger a nice reward by landing a combo of two or more symbols. Obviously, it’s also of use to you as a wild, when it can replace another symbol of the more regular kind.
The Sheriff symbol is a scatter in this case, and one that can only be used to give you a cash prize, not a feature. It appears in 3, 4 or 5 locations, and it gives you 2x, 25x or 60x the wager of that spin.
The other scatter, the Moonshine Jug, will be the one to give you the feature, but it will have no cash reward for you. Should you land 3, 4 or 5 of these Jugs on the reels, you will get a bonus game where with a bit of luck you might get as many as 18 free spins and multipliers at 4x.
Theme & Design
The theme is based on a redneck family, as seen in many movies, with a look that is not exactly hip and with various animals and types of foods that they might enjoy, along with that moonshine that they will create. You have the members of the family, including grandma, grandpa, their two boys, a large hog, pumpkin pie and so on.
Moonshine slot should be a relatively fun game to play, mostly thanks to its theme and the way it was implemented, but the features have a big role as well.
