Tiger Moon is one of Microgaming’s releases. A slot machine which gives you a Chinese themed look, it will not be one of the more original releases around, but it has its advantages. The symbols are chosen to include images of the Emperor, the Empress, gold coins and tigers, with even more symbols being just ugly poker cards. If the design doesn’t hold much of interest for the player, perhaps the feature list looks better, with its wild symbols, its multipliers, scatters and the free spins. The game has 243 ways to win, 5 reels and payouts of $3,125 are possible.
Betting and Prizes
The minimum line bet will be set at $0.01, while the maximum one will be taken up to $1.25. You can have as many as 5 coins in the line bet, with a value of up to $0.25. Since 25 lines are used for wagers, to cover the ways to win available, you will be able to spend $37.50 for each round you get through.
There is a maximum reward of $3,125, which is paid when five Emperor symbols appear and they are on all five reels available in Thiger Moon game.
Tiger Moon Slot Features
The game’s ways to win allow you to form a combination by getting the matching symbols on neighboring reels, which go from the left towards the right side. There is no need for them to be in fixed positions, a big advantage over slots with regular pay lines.
As for the regular features, they start off with a Chinese Coin wild, a symbol that is only going to be appearing on the reels 2 and 4. All symbols can be replaced with wilds in this game, and this even applies to the Tiger scatter, an ability that isn’t offered in the vast majority of the available slot machines.
The Tiger scatter is used to activate the free spins feature, but it is also capable of paying you directly when you have three to five symbols present. You will get paid 5x to 50x total bet, and you will get 8, 16 or 24 free spins, when you have 3 to 5 scatters appearing from left to right.
Perhaps the biggest attraction point in these free spins is the fact that the wild now has a multiplier to apply. The 2nd reel wild multiplies wins by 4x, while the 4th reel wild multiplies them by 5x. With both wilds contributing to some new combo, the payout will be at 20x the usual value.
Theme & Design
I wasn’t that impressed with the graphics of Tiger Moon slot. There is a single Tiger symbol which appears to be inspiring the game, otherwise it is a very regular Chinese themed slot, one which doesn’t have a great design. The poker letters are especially annoying and ugly to look at.
Tiger Moon gets you some impressive features if you manage to reach them, but in most ways it is not the kind of game that you will want to spend a lot of time with.
