Gypsy Moon slot encapsulates one of my favourite game themes – the ‘dark side’, including Tarot, clairvoyancy and mysticism all delivered to us by our enigmatic Gypsy. Set against a background of a night sky, the reels spin with magical sound effects plus music and naturally feature the tools of our mystic’s trade. If you’ve played Play’n Go’s Fortune Teller you may not be a stranger to this iconography, but the real issue at hand is surely whether she curses or blesses our bankroll?
On the reels…
We get a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows but you can choose the lines you play. A 30-coin stake will produce a 3-line game but play ‘Superbet’ you get a 243-way game for 50 coins per spin. I always play the higher stake so base the pays on that, but the aside from the scatter wins all awards are the same for a 5-of-a-kind. You see stacked Gypsy Wilds on all reels bar the first and symbols of the lower values are also stacked.
You need a 5-of-a-kind of the Moon for the top pay of 200x your Superbet and then the Magic Book pays 20x, the Crystal Ball awards 14x, the Pendant 8x and Tarot Cards 6x for a full line. We see no card values here but instead the Candle, Rose, Bracelet, Mirror and Ring all award 4x stake for a full line and all icons bar the Moon appear fully stacked. You can always rely on IGT for a good ol’ feature round especially on games that originated in land-based casinos such as this and for this we need the Zodiac scatters.
Zodiac free games
If we see 3 or more Zodiac scatters on consecutive reels left-to-right we go to a screen which allows us to select the volatility of our bonus similar to Wishing You Fortune or Jungle Spirit. This means more spins for a smaller multiplier and our choices are:
3 Scatter – 30 free spins at 1x multiplier, 15 at 2x, 10 at 3x or 7 at 5x.
4 Scatter – 40 free spins at 1x multiplier, 20 at 2x, 15 at 3x or 9 at 5x.
5 Scatter – 60 free spins at 1x multiplier, 30 at 2x, 20 at 3x or 14 at 5x.
If you retrigger you are awarded a repeat of your original selection but are capped at a maximum of 440 in total (as if…)!
Gypsy Moon slot is highly playable due to the frequent wins of between 2 and 10x bet which seem to land. You could achieve 1000x bet for the best Moons pay in the 5x free games too so there is potential here especially if you choose the 243-way version and see the four stacked Wilds in view which would guarantee at least 972x unless you were very unfortunate and hit the scatter on the first reel! The sound effects and visuals are easy on the player and I found it a decent slot to play, even though the RTP at 94.00% for 30-lines or 94.13% for 243-ways isn’t huge in comparison to many games. Don’t be too afraid of having your fortune told by this Gypsy…
