Manga fans rejoice! You get your very own anime slot with some very unique cascading reels.
Japanese anime is the name of the game as you play on this one of a kind 5×5 grid in the Moon Princess online slot.
The Moon Princess slot theme is not for everybody. Let’s get that straight right away. Play’n GO have designed a wonderful slot here, but it does have its niche.
Moon Princess is based heavily on Japanese anime. Expect cutesy artwork in that all too familiar Japanese art style.
It looks good. You can tell a lot of effort has gone into the design but, as mentioned, it is unlikely that this theme is going to be to everybody’s tastes.
The soundtrack to Moon Princess certainly is unique. We were not too into the whole Japanese anime craze back in the 90s (when it really started to take off other than Japan), but this certainly looks authentic enough, especially if you were into the Sailor Moon series back in the day.
However, the background music is nice and upbeat and the cries of ‘Amazing’ and ‘Fantastic’ when you score a win are nice, although often it does make it seem like you are not playing a slot.
We know that this is a problem for some gamblers who prefer more traditional 5×3 reel slots like Book of Dead.
There’s not much in term of a story but how much more do you need to know? There is about spinning reels with scantily dressed women with magic powers and gemstones, rather than being stuck in your office at work.
It is evident that slots like this are there to rope in new players by offering a game in a new niche. Play’n GO likely just wanted to pick up a few new online slot game fans.
However, normally when you get these ‘intro slots’, they tend to be heavily based upon frequent, small wins. Moon Princess goes down a different route. It is a high volatility slot.
When you do win, you win big, though. In fact, the maximum win on Moon Princess is a whopping 5,000x your bet. There is barely a slot out there which comes close to this payout.
There are so many features packed into Moon Princess that we just do not know where to start.
During the base game, you can benefit from cascading reels, although it is slightly different from the cascading reels you normally find in games like Rook’s Revenge by Betsoft.
With this feature, if you get 3 or more symbols in a row (can be horizontal or vertically), you get a win. These symbols will disappear.
In normal ‘cascading reels’ slots, new symbols will fall from above. In Moon Princess, a wild will fall from above instead, right into the heart of where those symbols disappeared from. We think that we prefer this more as that leads to a cascade of features.
Each time you spin the reels, you have the opportunity to activate the ‘magic power’ of the girl currently displayed on the reels. This is something which only occurs on non-winning spins and totally at random.
You can trigger these features another way too. When you play the game, you will notice a small meter.
When you win using a princess symbol, this meter will fill up. If you get 3 wins in a row, it will fill up completely and you get either 2 or 3 of the girl powers in a row.
This is not something you will trigger often, far less than the similar but friendlier Gemix slot game.
If you are lucky enough to clear the whole set of reels on a single spin, you will get the Moon Princess free spins feature. You can choose how you want this to behave:
On every spin where you do not win, the power highlighted above will trigger. You can win up to 100x your initial bet in this feature.
This Moon Princess grid slot is not a game for everybody, mostly due to the theming. This is a great shame because the gameplay, at least the free spins, will involve a little thinking, something we love to see in slot machines.
We are more than happy to recommend Moon Princess to all slot fans, just be aware that it may not necessarily gel with your play style.
If it doesn’t try Gemix or Viking Runecraft slot for more action in your spins.
