Coyote Moon from IGT In Depth Slot Review
Coyote Moon was originally a land based slot machine found in real brick and mortar casinos. Recently International Gaming Technology (IGT) decided to recreate the famous one-armed bandit into an online and mobile slot machine game for the quickly growing online crowd. The main attraction to this particular slot is the special set of stacked wild symbols that can appear on the reels, which appear quite often when playing with all of the slots available pay lines.
Coyote Moon features very good video graphics and great sound that is a hallmark of all of ITG’s online slots. Coyote Moon is based on two previous online slot games called Wolf Run and Wild Wolf. The slot is a five reel, video slot with the ability to have up to forty active pay lines going at any one time. Being a multi-stake slot, you are able to pick and choose the coin values you set the game to play out on. Players are encouraged to be aware, however, unlike most IGT slot games, Coyote Moon can only activate one coin per pay-line that you put into play.
Wild and Scatter Slots Symbols
As you can probably imagine, all of the symbols in Coyote Moon are based on the animal the coyote, and all the things that can be found in his world. The base symbols are taken from the card deck, and start with nine, going up to Ace. The rest of the symbols are things that a coyote may come across, namely a deer, a hummingbird, cow skull, and lizard.
The wild symbol is represented by the Coyote Moon and the Ancient Singing Coyote plays the part of the scatter symbol. The Wild moon can substitute for any other symbol except for the scatter symbol. Finding the wilds in various amounts will result in a number of payouts, whilst finding the scatters in various amounts will result in unlocking the bonus game.
There is only one bonus game in Coyote Moon. Playing the maximum amount of active pay lines in Coyote Moon will seriously increase the chances of getting wild symbols, and thus increasing a player’s payout.
The bonus feature round in Coyote Moon is called The Rising Moon Free Spin Bonus Game. Landing three or more Ancient Singing Coyote scatter symbols in the second, third, or fourth reels will unlock this game for a player. In this game, the player is awarded five free spins as well as double your total stake. During this round, a different set of reels is used, giving a player the maximum opportunity to hit big wins.
As the round progresses more free spins can be won if more scatter symbols appear in the reels. This game carries a maximum amount of free spins, but fear not as they are a whopping 255! This allows the player to win a whole lot of credits without using their bankroll at all. Once the bonus round is over, the game will revert to normal gameplay with the bonus winnings added to the player’s regular bankroll.
