Get ready to travel back to the 30s, to the prohibition period, as Moonshine Riches is trying to get you to do just that. This new release from NetEnt has graphics that will match that time period, several features that could prove interesting and a theme that is still fun, even though we’ve seen it used in a couple of other slots.
You don’t get line filled reels in Moonshine Riches, as the game will use the standard 5x3 reels but will add only 9 lines to them. These lines are fixed and they could bring you wins of up to $15,750 in a single base game spin. Several features have been implemented, such as the wild symbols, the Moonshine Bonus wild, a Ricochet Reward feature, the Territory Takeover Spins and their increasing multipliers, or even the Bootleggers Bounty Bonus.
Betting and Prizes
When it comes to betting, Moonshine Riches looks like your standard NetEnt slot machine. It uses 9 lines during all its rounds, allowing you to select a number of coins for each one that goes from 1 to 10. The Level of the bet will allow you to change that setting. The Coin Value, found on the other side of the Spin button, will go from $0.01 to $0.50. The smallest bet possible is $0.09, with the highest one being $45.
Looking at the base game rounds, those will offer combinations of wilds which pay up to 350x, or up to $1,750. Since we have 9 lines, a wild-filled screen will get you a reward of $15,750. There should be potential for more during certain features though, which will offer multipliers.
Moonshine Riches Slot Features
While some of the features from Moonshine Riches feel unique, others are more on the average side, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. One such feature is the Wild, which you will see appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. By appearing there, the wilds are going to be replacements for other types of symbols and will be part of their wins, provided that we’re not talking about the Bonus icons. It’s a wild that has its own reward to give away, up to 350x the line bet being available from it. Wondering how it’s possible to have a combo of five symbols, when there are only three reels that can get wilds? It’s with the help of this next symbol, the Moonshine Bonus wild which appears on the reels that the regular wild doesn’t land on.
The symbols sporting a silver style MB Logo is the Moonshine Bonus icon. You have it appear during the main game’s rounds only, on reels 1 and 5, acting as a wild that can replace all other types of symbols.
Two of these symbols, in the main game, will give you a Ricochet Reward. One of the two MB logos will transform the symbols found on the same row as it is, into a single randomly chosen one.
If two MB Logos are on the same row, they trigger 5 Territory Takeover Spins. The 5 reels of this feature have 1 row and 1 bet line which pays both ways. Multipliers of up to 5x are possible, as the number goes up by 1x each spin.
Bootlegger’s Bounty is triggered if there are no regular wins in the Territory Takeover Spins. It’s a bonus game with rewards of up to 75x the bet.
Theme & Design
You get a slot with a vintage design, with several characters that you might find in an illegal bar, but also with playing cards. It’s a decent looking slot, not a great one.
For a game from NetEnt, there is room for improvement graphics wise, but the features are as unique and exciting as ever.
