Join a band of bootleggers and try and smuggle a bumper jackpot in Moonshine Riches. Created by NetEnt, this Prohibition-themed video slot is played using a 5 reel, 9 payline game engine and comes with classy design and some solid features. Look out for transforming symbols, free spins with expanding multipliers and a pick and win bonus. Play on all devices from between 9p and £45 per spin.
NetEnt games are usually well designed and Moonshine Riches is a really impressive looking game – the setting is a classic speakeasy bar. On the reels you’ll see glasses of scotch, bottles of whisky and kegs of beer. They’re joined by 5 characters including bootleggers, a mobster’s moll and a cigar-chomping Mr Big. He’s the top payer, awarding 38 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline.
There’s also a wild – this appears on the middle 3 reels in the base game and on all 5 reels in the Territory Takeover bonus, more of which shortly. It too offers awards of up to 38 times your bet per payline. Moonshine Riches comes with a trio of bonus features.
Ricochet Reward feature – this is triggered by landing the Moonshine Bonus symbol on different rows on reels 1 and 5. 1 of the Bonus symbols is chosen at random – all other symbols on that row (apart from any wilds) transform into the same matching symbol. A new payout is then made with the matching symbols in position.
Territory Takeover Spins feature – these are awarded of you land 2 Moonshine Bonus symbols on the same row. You’ll receive 5 free spins played on a 5 reel, 1 row, win both ways machine. These spins start at 1x. A multiplier increases by 1x with each subsequent free spin. Any wilds that land remain in play for the remainder of your free spins and gives you 1 more free spin – this can result in 9 free spins with a 9x multiplier on your last free spin.
Bootlegger’s Bounty Bonus feature – don’t despair if your 5 Territory Takeover Spins don’t yield any wins. If that happens, you’ll proceed to this feature. It’s a pick me round where awards of between 10 and 75 times your bet are on offer with each pick.
You won’t find many more stylish video slots that Moonshine Riches. The cartoon visuals are superbly done and the jazz age backing track is a cracker. The features don’t quite match the exceedingly high design standards but they’re decent enough. If you enjoyed the TV series Boardwalk Empire then this is the video slot for you – it could also land you with a 700 times bet win on your 9x multiplier free spin! If you like NetEnt games, I recommend the brilliant Planet of the Apes which has an abundance of bonus features.
