Mystic Moon Big Hit Bonanza is a new age pokie, featuring a striking blue-haired female mystic as the lead. She appears alongside a golden crown complete with ice-like blue gems, pearls, seashells, Disney-like castles, dolphins and of course the moon. This magical moon and sea themed slot is completed by a backdrop showing a picturesque moonlit bay, where Aurora style lights glow in the sky.
You’ll find a ‘bonus’ label attached randomly to symbols appearing on reels 2, 3 or 4. If you’re lucky enough to land the bonus label on each of these three reels, you’ll instantly be awarded one of three progressive jackpots. These are the major, minor or mini prizes. While you can’t win the Grand jackpot in this way, you’ll certainly walk away with a nice pay out.
Look out for the stacked moon symbol which appears on reels 3, 4 and 5. Land 6 or more images of the moon and you’ll enter the Big Hit Feature. This will instantly see each of the moon symbols in view automatically award 1 or 2 free spins each.
Before you start the free spins you’ll have a chance at aiming for the Grand jackpot. Each of the moon symbols are held, while all of the other reels are spun again. Any time a new moon appears, this will be held too. The aim is to fill all 15 symbol positions with the moon, which will award you with the Grand jackpot.
Any time you don’t land a moon during the free re-spins, you’ll have two more opportunities, before the feature ends. If you don’t manage to hit the Grand Jackpot, you’ll win a smaller prize for every additional moon you land.
This second feature is awarded randomly on any paid spin. The feature works in the same way as the Big Hit Feature except for the fact that you’ll start with reels 2, 3 and 4 stacked with the moon symbol. Like in the first feature, each of the nine stacked moons will award either 1 or 2 free spins.
Once you’ve had a go at winning the jackpot, the free spins part of the bonus feature will begin. Every free spin will see the mystic lady wild stacked on reel 5 throughout, as well as further instances of the wild on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Mystic Moon Big Hit Bonanza features a five-reel set up with 50 win-lines in play, offering action all the way. A glance at the pay table tells you that the dolphin and the crown are the highest payers, each worth 400 coins, while the pearl, castle and the seashell pay 300 coins. The pay table is completed by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. The wild symbol appears stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the moon.
The backdrop to this mysterious game shows a huge full moon shining in the sky, above a bay surrounded by icy cliffs. Colourful lights project upwards into the sky, while the transparent reels ensure this eye-catching scene remains in view throughout.
Check out the animation when you win with the blue-haired female wild symbols – she transforms into the moon, then ‘wild’ and then back again. The soundtrack is at its best when you start landing those moons on the reels – land the feature and the game exclaims ‘Yes!’.
Mystic Moon Big Hit Bonanza is an enjoyable pokie with a lot of different features. The base game features those stacked wilds offering up impressive win chances, especially with 50 win-lines in play. Enter either of the ‘Big Hit’ bonus features and you’ll have a chance at the Grand jackpot, with consolation prizes and free spins heading your way.
