The Blood Moon Wilds game is set on a 5×3 grid against the backdrop of Victoria-era New Orleans. There are twenty paylines in play for you to match three or more of the symbols across to land a win. Before you start spinning, choose how much you want to bet. Options range from €0.10 up to €100.
Symbols in Blood Moon Wilds are made up of the four lower -aying card suits and the four high-paying characters. The higher paying symbols in the game are made up of the human characters. Although should the full moon rise, you’ll witness a transformation. The highest paying symbol is the red-haired woman who pays out 50x your stake for a line of five.
Every time you spin the reels, you may notice another horizontal reel across the top of the grid. This shows the Lunar calendar and represents the main Blood Moon Wilds bonus feature. Each spin will also spin the calendar, and if it lands on a full moon, the high paying symbols on the reels will transform. Every high paying symbol undergoes a transformation to become a werewolf wild, substituting for other symbols and giving a high chance of a payout.
The game also features scatters which will unlock the Blood Moon Wilds free spins round. Land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels and the Lunar eclipse starts, turning the screen red. During this round, you’ll get between seven and twenty free spins depending on how many scatters you land. The free spins can also be retriggered by landing two scatters during the round.
While the free spins are active, a blood moon can show up on the Lunar calendar. If this appears, not only will the high paying symbols transform into wilds, they’ll also stick to the reels for the duration of the bonus round. Blood Moon Wilds has a maximum jackpot of 5000x your stake.
There are wilds and free spins. During free spins, wilds can become sticky and more free spins can be won. During the base game, random multipliers, extra scatters and wild transformations can occur. There’s also a chance for the moon to nudge. It can automatically land on the full moon which unlocks the wild transformation.
