Yggdrasil Gaming’s Blood Moon Wilds Video Slot Review

Blood Moon Wilds: Demo

Blood Moon Wilds is a feature-filled werewolf-themed video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. Superbly designed as usual, it comes with a quartet of random modifiers that add multipliers of up to 5x, transform single or multiple symbols into wilds or delivers a free spin trigger. That free spins round offers plenty of free spins. The Lunar Calendar can turn multiple high value symbols wild. Stakes here start at 10p, rising to a maximum of £100 per spin for the super high rollers.

Yggdrasil Gaming’s usual design flair

A misty mansion in Victorian age New Orleans is the setting for the Blood Moon Wilds slot. The reels are set within iron gates and watched over by a pair of wolf statues. On the reels you’ll see heart, diamond, club and spade symbols alongside 4 higher paying characters. The woman with red hair is the best of them, offering awards of 2.5, 10 or 50 times your bet if you land 3, 4, or 5 on a payline. The imagery is very well done, backed by a creepy orchestral score. No grumbles about the design.

Lunar Calendar

Above the reels is a Lunar Calendar. On each spin, you’ll see the moon in various phases of its cycle spin through the Lunar Calendar window. If a full moon appears in that window, you’ll trigger the Lunar Calendar feature. Any high value character symbols on the reels below will transform into werewolf wilds. A new payout consideration is then made with the wilds in position.

4 random features

On any spin you could benefit from 1 of the following 4 modifier extras. These can strike in the base game and the free spins. More on that round, later.

  • Random Wilds feature – 1 high value symbol becomes wild.
  • Random Multiplier feature – a2x, 3x, 4x or 5x multiplier is applied to your winning combination.
  • Extra Free Spin Symbol feature – if there are 2 or more scatters on the reels, you could land 1 extra to trigger the Free Spins feature or add extra free spins to your tally.
  • Random Full Moon feature – a full moon nudges into the Lunar Calendar window in the base game or a Blood Moon in the bonus round. These turn multiple symbols or positions wild.

Plenty of free spins

The Free Spins feature is triggered in the usual manner by landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters on the same spin. You’ll then play 7, 10, 12 or 20 free spins. To land the full 20 free spins, you’ll need the help of the random free spins modifier. Landing 2 scatters in the free spins round results in a re-trigger and 2 more free spins. The modifiers are in play here too which can lead to extra wilds and multipliers up to 5x.

Blood Moon wilds

During the Free Spins feature you’ll see that Blood Moons are added to the Lunar Calendar cycle. If one of these lands in the window, the high value symbols below become wild. These symbol positions can create wilds if characters land in them for the rest of the feature.

Howlingly entertaining

With its high spec visuals and cracking soundtrack, Blood Moon Wilds is a very well-designed video slot. Yggdrasil Gaming has packed in plenty of variety from the features too. The modifiers, transforming wilds and free spins make for a very entertaining combination. The random 5x multipliers can pay up to 5,000 times your bet on each spin or free spin!

The werewolf theme has provided decidedly mixed results for slot developers. This is one of the better ones. If you like the horror theme, then Blood Moon Wilds is one to investigate. Another option if you like the horror them is Microgaming’s Immortal Romance.
