Yggdrasil Gaming’s Blood Moon Wilds Slot Review

The Blood Moon Wilds online slot is powered by Yggdrasil Gaming and has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable from 10p to £100 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this werewolf themed slot comes with a Lunar Calendar feature where high value symbols transform into wilds. There are 4 random features to give you more wilds, multipliers up to 5x, extra scatters and Lunar Calendar feature triggers. These apply in the Free Spins feature where werewolf wilds are sticky.

Blood Moon Wilds Theme/Symbols

The Blood Moon Wilds slot has a werewolf theme and has a Victorian feel to it. Set at sunset in New Orleans, you’ll see the full moon in the backdrop. Perfect for Halloween, the reels are set on wooden slats with stone werewolf statues perched above the reels.

Symbols include low value diamonds, clubs, spades and hearts – you’ll also see 4 grim heroes which turn into werewolves more on this later). The red-haired woman is the most valuable symbol giving you 2.5, 10 or 50 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

Lunar Calendar feature

Above the reels you will see a Lunar Calendar which shows the phase of the moon. When it displays a full moon, all the high value character symbols will transform into werewolf wild symbols. All 4 characters can turn into werewolf wilds giving you 4 additional wilds. These wilds replace all symbols bar the scatter and pay like the high value red haired lady (50 times your stake for 5 on a payline.

Random features

The Blood Moon Wilds slot game also benefits from 4 random features that can be triggered on ay spin in the base game. Here’s what you can get:

  • Random Wilds feature – the most valuable symbol on the reels transforms into a wild symbol.
  • Random Multiplier feature – a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x is applied to your winning combination.
  • Extra Free Spin Symbol feature – this simply adds 1 more free spins symbol to the reels. This feature only occurs when there are least 2 free spins symbols on the reels.
  • Random Full Moon feature – here, the Lunar Calendar is nudged so that a full moon appears which then transforms high value symbols into wilds.

Free Spins feature

In the base game, look out for the red gemstone free spins scatter symbol – when you get 3, 4 or 5 on the reels simultaneously, you will trigger the Free Spins feature with 7,10 or 12 free spins awarded (respectively). An extra free spins symbol from the Extra Free Spin Symbol feature in the base game can add a 6th scatter giving you 20 free spins. During the feature, just 2 free spins symbols will give you 2 additional free spins – with no limits.

Once in, the 4 random features can apply meaning you can benefit from an extra wild, multipliers up to 5x, more free spins and the Lunar Calendar feature. However, the full moon no longer appears as it is replaced by multiple blood moons. When a blood moon appears in the Lunar Calendar, all high value symbols on the reels transform into wilds – these wilds remain sticky for the duration of the feature.

Blood Moon Wilds slot overview

To look at, the Blood Moon Wilds slot is superb – the graphics and animations are on point and the eerie soundtrack adds to the intense atmosphere. I quite like the Lunar Calendar feature as a full moon will lead to the high value symbols becoming wild.

Variance wise, Blood Moon Wilds is in the medium to high bracket – you can win up to 1,000 times your stake by filling the reels with the red-haired woman and/or wilds. Add in the potential 5x random multiplier and you could pocket 5,000 times your stake on each spin or free spin – the likelihood increases in the Free Spins feature due to the sticky werewolf wilds.

In summary, Blood Moon Wilds looks fantastic and has rewarding bonus features in both the base game and Free Spins feature. If you like werewolf slots, Ash Gaming’s Full Moon Fortunes still sets the standard for me as you can win 12,500 times your stake on each free spin.
