Moonshine Slot

Play for real money

Moonshine is Microgaming powered video slot with 5 reels and 25 pay-lines. This slot is inspired with the illegal alcohol from the South of the United States. Symbols are mainly theme-related and there is a lot of symbolism here. The reels cover up the whole screen so there is no background here. Give this slot a spin for free on this page or visit Microgaming Casinos to play for real money.

Before you start to moonshine, you should set your bets. By clicking on "+/-" you will set coins size which ranges from 0.01 to 1, and "Select Coins" is used to set the number of coins per line that you wish to bet. "Select Lines" will help you set the number of lines to bet, and "Max Bet" is used to set the maximum bet available. "Spin" will set the reels in motion, and "Autoplay" option is used to turn the reels without interruption for a chosen number of times.

Granny in a rocking chair is the Wild symbol in the game and it can substitute for all the symbols in the game except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols. Should you get lucky enough to hit 5 of these on any active pay-line, you will win 8000 coins.

Cop is the Scatter symbol, and it can form scatter wins. All of these wins are multiplied by the total bet, and these wins are added to pay-line wins.

Glass Jug is the Bonus symbol in the game if you land 5 or more of these you will start the Moonshine Bonus feature. In this feature you can win up to 18 spins at x4 multiplier. The number of spins depend on the number of symbols you land. You can win 3, 4 or 5 spins and all of them with x1 multiplier. However this is only the start. Once triggered you will get to open tiles in a grid. You can keep opening the tiles until you run into ‘start free spins feature’ tile. At that point all of your spins and multipliers revealed will be added together and the feature will start.

Moonshining, the term used to describe making alcohol drinks illegally. When the moon comes out, only the light from the moon lights up the darkness on the night, and the moonshiners get busy with their production line of making alcohol drinks without having any license to do so. Well, I first know of this term from watching American TV serials, so whenever the word moonshining is mentioned, I immediately think of this happening in the USA. Don't know if other countries elsewhere use the same terminology or not, but it doesn't matter really. Not the concern here anyway.

Looking at the icons used in this game, the American version immediately comes to my mind. There's the moonshiners, the Sheriff, and even a guardian...a grandma guardian! Oh boy! I just cannot imagine an old lady like that could be the guardian, whilst the rest of the family are busy moonshining. Well, perhaps that's how it was, or still is, in the USA. I don't know for sure. Anyway, the Grandma is the Wild symbol, 5 of her pays 8000x the line bet, and substitute for other symbols except for the Scatter and the Bonus symbols. It doesn't even double any wins with it, or become stacked, or become expanded, making it a true blue dumb Wild symbol. I hate these kind of Wilds, because they serve very little purpose in the game. The Sheriff is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays a very low 60x the total bet amount, and getting 3 or more of these Scatters get you nothing extra, meaning, no Free Spins game.

The Bottle is the Bonus symbol, it doesn't pay anything for itself, dumb symbol, and getting 3, 4 or 5 of them triggers the Free Spins game, with 3, 4 or 5 initial free spins with a 1x multiplier. In the next screen, pick one block at a time to reveal free spins and multipliers, but getting a 'Start Free Spins Game' ends the picking. The Free Spins game cannot be retriggered. The other symbols in the game pay from a very low 500x to 40x the line bet amount for 5 of each kind. A low paytable, except for the value of the Wild symbol.
Well, there's nothing exciting about the graphics in the game. The icons are the same too, but the paytable is way too low for my liking. There aren't any other feature game, except for the Free Spins game, but this too hasn't shown any potential for good wins. I've had a zero payout for a 3 free spins game, a 1x and a 2x bet win for yet two more 3 free spins games, and the best that I've gotten so far was 96x my bet amount. Most of the payouts are within the range of 10x - 40x, with nothing more than that as far as my games are concerned..

Moonshine according to me is not one of those games that gets the pulse racing. You can play it for a while but without big winnings and excitement what's the point to do so. I started playing this game with plenty of cash, I have to say I did not lose everything but then again, I did not win anything good to brag about. I could not manage to land any good symbols to win big, though the winnings during the base game are not that big but acceptable.

This is also a five reel and 25 pay lines slot run by the Microgaming software. The graphics and the sounds are not that bad. The symbols are large so there is not much going on in the background. Some of the lower paying symbols include sardines, peppers, and pumpkins. The pink pig and 3 local characters are the more expensive symbols. The scatter in this game is the local southern sheriff, the old lady on a chair is the wild, and also there is an alcohol jar which is also a scatter.

If you play a game just for the free spins then this is the right one for you. You need to land 3 alcohol jars to get 3 free spins with x 1 multiplier. If you land 4 alcohol jars you get 4 free spins with x 1 multiplier, and 5 alcohol jars will reward you with 5 free spins with x 1 multiplier. I know that this is not so much but the alcohol jars appear very often while you play the game. And this is just the start. You have to pick from a grid which will reward you not only with free spins but also with multipliers. Small to medium wins are something common in this game but big wins are something impossible to catch.

Moonshine is great video slot game with 25 pay-lines and 5 reels formed in Microgaming. I guess this is an older slot game. You can see that by the symbols and each of them here is a work of art. Sometimes, Microgaming really pays much more attention to designing the symbols. The graphics and the animations are great for an old game like this. All in all, at least for the design Moonshine deserves all of the 10 stars.

The darkness is related to the period of prohibition and illegal production of alcohol, for that period of the American history.

When it comes to the feature, this game offers a number of them. You have a wild symbol here that substitutes all of the other symbols. Here, 3 scatter symbols will pay 3 x bet, 4 scatter symbols 25 x bet and 5 of these symbols pay 60 x bet. At the end, a real bonus feature. Actually, this is a free spins bonus. To reach this bonus you need to have 3, 4 or 5 symbols anywhere on the screen that say “Bonus”. The bonus starts as a classic pick up bonus. You click on the boxes below which is +1 or +1 multiplier until you click on the box below that says “Start Free Spins”. This way you can reach a maximum of 18 free spins with a 4 x multiplier.

Even though this is an old game and even though I play for 5 years in the Microgaming casinos, I just found about it recently. I liked it so much that in the last couple of months it is my first choice when I play in these casinos. The reason for this are some great wins that I have had here. 15 days ago, I had wins of almost 150 euros on a bet of 0,5.Perhaps the rating that I gave for this game, 9 out of 10 possible stars, is not very objective. But Moonshine is a video slot game that I was thrilled by.
Moonshine slot it is Microgaming game, discovered it while playing my journey with all Microgaming games. Managed to do only 150 spins in this slot, until I really feel myself tired and just left it.

Game looks extremely old. And compared with other Microgaming old games - this one looks not solid and very bad. I really did not like sounds, and general game look. Also there is 25 paylines.

Base game at this slot is something really boring, not interesting, and something which will make pain for you (at least it did for me, I am not sure about your experience and feelings, everything is just based on my own observations). Wilds at this game have its own payout, which is quite good, but unfortunately wilds do not have anything on top of that, no multiplier or special features. Scatters at this slot are useless, 5 pay 50 x total bet, and also scatters do not trigger any feature. This is quite unusual, and always surprise for me and for most players I think, because we all know that scatters in absolutely biggest amount of slots trigger feature, but still there is couple of sad exceptions where it is does not trigger.

Luckily you can trigger bonus game at this slot; otherwise I will easily nominate this game to the most boring slot game award in the world. You need 3 or more bonus symbols, and then you will have to pick number of free spins and multipliers. Triggered this feature once - get 12 freespins with x 3 multiplier, which pay me solid 20 x total bet.

Overall this is bad game for me. I am will not rate it high, and will not feel myself about due to such rating. Game almost does not have potential, very boring, and payouts are very low.
Low payouts at any slot game - it is very bad for me.

Moonshine is a 25 payline slot game from Microgaming. On first glance at this game I enjoyed the graphics, I am not usually a fan of all bright colors but I think Microgaming done a good job of making this look somewhat polished despite the colors.

I was spending most of my time playing this game on a fifty cent bet and while I wasn't managing to land anything big I did get a high enough frequency of wins to keep me ticking over. The most common appearance for me was the pink pig which I did manage to match four of these on a couple of occasions but the reward was nothing to get overly excited about.
As the game wore on for me I found myself getting nowhere. The amount of wins I was getting started to slowly dry up and while I still had plenty f cash left to play with I just wasnt kept intrigued due to the lack of any potential big wins. The only LARGE payer on this game is the wild granny. I always thought older people didn't like me but this was just taking the biscuit, I only ever managed to land one granny on the reels at one time so the chances of me getting five of these to win big were pretty damn slim. The scatters were far more happy to show their faces and again that's no surprise when its symbolized by a police officer!! Unfortunately more often than not I would land two of these on the reels and just miss out on the three required to win anything half decent.

All things considered about Moonshine there is enough here to keep you occupied but if you are after a game that gets the pulse racing then I could not recommend spending your time on this game.

My rating for Moonshine is five out of ten.

Moonshine it is typical microgaming old video slot, and most likely if you decide to play it you will have nothing to surprise and did not see anything unique, but for example i am like to play such games, and feel that i am not alone.

Moonshine has 25 paylines and here we have wilds on all reels, and good thing that wilds here have payout itself, nothing really big, but x 300 total bet will make any player happy if he hit it. Also here we have scatters, but here is another typical thing that scatters here did not trigger feature, but pay some money, up to x 60 total bet, if scatters will land. You can trigger free spins at moonshine video slot, for this you need 3+ bonus symbols. 3 bonus symbols give 3 free spins x 1, 4 give 4 x 1, and 5 give 5 x 1. But did not fear, that is just base number of free spins, you then will be play bonus game, and increase number of free spins and increase multiplier up to x 4. best i was able to get at this game is 15 x 3 , and this is typical for any microgaming video slot, so nothing to surprise me here.

I played this game only once, at 32red casino, and i had not very nice experience, since i open this game with 50$ balance, and then come bad streak and free spins did not want to trigger, and i find myself to trigger bonus game only when 20$ was left. Free spins did not return me my losses, and with 30$ i just left this game like a nightmare, of course it is just bad luck, but i am still did not see reasons to play this game.

Medium variance slot, with nothing really interesting.It has no unique features, and payouts are quite low, i will not play this game again. But you can try it and decide, did you agree with me or no.
Moonshine is a game powered by microgaming. OMG what a stupid game. I actually don't know why microgaming makes games like that. I guess the have to make few games where it is almost impossible to win big or to win at all. I have played this game good few times and can honestly recommend not to play this game.

First i would like to start with the graphics, this is so far the worst graphics i have ever seen on microgaming. Really bad and very annoying to play i kind of get sick of it after a while. The next thing that is bad in this game is the pays. Very small and pretty much useless. There are 25 lines in this game and my usual bet on this game is €0.25 or €0.50. Max line hit that i ever had was €8 on a €0.50 bet. This was one of the biggest pays and you can see that it was not worth the time. The only way to win big is to get five wilds and that not good enough because if you get five wilds in any game you would win big.

There is only one feature in this game and that is a free spins feature. To get that i had to get three or more scatters and i have got 3,4 and 5. Max i won was 18 free spins with 4x. I got that on a €0.25 bet and won around €10. I have never ever won over €20 on this game and dont think i ever would. This game is a complete waste of time and i would not recommend it to my enemy. If i was to rate it i would give it 1 out of 10.

Moonshine is definitely one of the weakest slots from Microgaming casinos . And when I say weak this is an understatement. In my opinion Moonshine is one of those slots that make life miserable for any player, making him spend time and money. This category of slots is unfortunately quite common in most casinos (MicroGaming does not make exception to this rule, although here there are also exceptional slots).

I do not know if you are a fan of the Simpsons, but I guess you have watched at least once this cartoons series. Well, the characters of this slot perfectly resembles an episode that would have the title „The Simpsons and their kitchen“. There are present the grandmother, the father, the grandson, the cop, the pig and some kitchen items of this family. But the quality of graphics is poor and leaves much to be desired (I need however to say that I played this slot in the Flash version of the casino).

The spins are extremely fast, with a total of 25 paylines and with a minimum bet of 25 cents. The wins are quite small and very rare and the onlyspecial feature, namely the Free Spins round will not bring higher wins. To the standard 5 Free Spins with a 1x multiplier,there are added some other free spins and some other multipliers, by a random choosing of the player before the actual round, but the wins are still low. During the Free Spins round the symbols are changing and this is the only pleasant aspect of this slot. The Granny is Wild here and the Cop is Scatter, and these symbols are quite common but with little avail. After 200 spins here you will have a minus of at least 15 Euro (at the total bet of 25 cents as I said).

I repeat my opinion it is not worth to play the slot, even for a few test spins. Pity.

Moonshine is a 25 Paylines video slot that can provide changing opinions every time I play this slot. On every bet I continuously place bets of $0.50 only on the account that it's the most agreeable and reasonable amount to bet on a video slot such as Moonshine.

To tell you about the Free spins feature is like trying to fire an arrow on a long range target, every time I trigger it I will get many different results. There are 18 blue tiles onscreen for picking once this bonus has been triggered. What Microgaming meant by up to 18 free spins they meant to include 5 scattered bonus symbols to get initially 5 free spins at 1x. You start with 3 Free spins at 1x for 3 scattered jug symbols, 4 jugs for 4 FS at 1x and 5 jugs for 5 FS at 1x. There is 1 Free spin for most picks, 3 multipliers hidden in three of the blue tiles and the baddest beast of them all 2 "Start Free spins bonus" signs which I really hate to get on my first pick or whenever I made successful picks already then "BANG!" the door closes in my face. To me this feature is a "You really need to get lucky" earn and chase bonus that I don't recommend.

What I do like about Moonshine however are the Wild Rocking Chair Grannies that pop out very often!!! It's a shame that this symbol doesn't act for any multiplying wins. I guess that is what the bonus is for right? Ultimately this is one slot I use if other slots are counter-cooperative, that way I can see just little returns rather than the price for none even on an unlucky day because a little win is way better than nothing! Moonshine is entertaining, pays in pieces in the main game, bigger if I get lucky with the feature and overall it's just entertaining altogether. It could be better!

However, my rating is a 7 out of 10 for it's southern hospitality and what this video slot has to offer me!
