Gypsy Moon has paylines and ways to win
This is a three row, five reel video slot which offers an initial 30 paylines, but the ability, depending on how the game is set up, to switch to 243 ways to win. More on this in the section on customising your bets, further on.
When we're looking at symbol values, these will vary to some extent, depending on how the game has been set up, so while the information here shows correct values, you may find some games have been set up with lower values throughout. To check any values in the game, click on the paytable button and that will show you the detailed payout information for every symbol and every possible win.
The most valuable symbol is, of course, the Gypsy Moon itself. Five gypsy moons will earn you a whacking 20,000. Four of them will earn you 2,000. Three of them of them give you 400. Two of them give you 40.
The stack of Tarot cards is the next highest paying symbol. Five of these are worth 2,000 times your bet. 4 packs are worth 400 times your bet, three packs are worth 200, and 2 packs are worth 20.
Next comes the crystal ball and five of these will earn you 1,400. Four of them will earn you 240. The silver locket with the green stone earns 800 for five, 150 for four and 80 for three.
The hand of Tarot cards that have been dealt will earn you 500, 120, 60 for five, four and three of them respectively. The candle will earn you 400, 30, 20 for five, four and three. The gorgeous red rose is worth the same amount as is the blue necklace with the red stone and the ring with the purple stone.
The Gypsy Moon brings the Zodiac to life
The scatter is the beautiful Zodiac. Five, four and three of these pay 2,000, 1000 and 500 respectively. You can also win 500 free spins.
The Gypsy never appears on reel one, only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. She can substitute for all symbols except the Zodiac.
Customising your Gypsy Moon bet
The default setting in Gypsy Moon is for 30 paylines. However you can change that to 243. If you look at the dashboard at the bottom of the play area, you'll see a number of buttons, including the super play button. And on either side are the paytable button and the bet total button.
How to use the Gypsy Moon Superplay feature
The Superplay feature is a really great way to play a slot. You can play 5 reels and take advantage of 243 different ways to win when the same symbols appear located in any position, moving from left to right, as long as they are on adjacent reels. This is different from having to use the specific paylines setup in the paytable, as you would in a traditional slot game.
As previously, whether or not you have the Superplay feature will depend on how the game has been set up. If you don't have it, you'll just get the standard 30 paylines.
To use Superplay, click on the bet button to select your bet amount which will be displayed in your total bet. Then click on the spin button to start the play. Obviously, you can click on stop at any time to shorten the spin, and stopping the reels won't influence the results of any spin. When you win, the amount you've won will be displayed in total win.
Superplay gives you 243 ways to win by simply matching symbols in adjacent columns, in any position, starting from the leftmost column. If you have more than one matching symbol in the same column, you get a higher win. The Gypsy wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol except for the bonus symbol.
The best way to understand the way that the Superplay wins are worked out is to imagine that you have got multiple occurrences of the moon symbol and also one wild. You add up the number of moon and wild symbols in each column, multiply this by the number of winning ways, multiply the number of ways by the number of moon symbols and that finally gets your win. Or you can just let the paytable do it - which most of us will.
Free spins bonus in Gypsy Moon
If you get three four or five of the bonus scatter symbols on adjacent reels starting with the leftmost reel, then you trigger the free spins bonus. Once the free spins bonus is triggered you get four options which can change, depending on the number of bonus symbols that you had when the free spins bonus was triggered. The choices that you make won't affect the amount you win.
If you have three, four or five bonus symbols you can get 30, 40 or 60 free spins with a multiplier of 1x.
If you have three, four or five bonus symbols you can select 15, 20 or 33 spins with a multiplier of x2.
If you have three, four or five bonus symbols you can select 10, 15 or 20 free spins with a multiplier of x3.
If you have three, four or five bonus symbols you can select 7, 9 or 14 free spins with a multiplier of x5.
This is as good as the best multiplier slot machines. But there's even better news!
Whenever three, four or five bonus scatter symbols appear on consecutive reels, starting with the leftmost, the free spins bonus is retriggered! Every time the free spins bonus is retriggered, you can choose the options for free spins and multipliers, as above. This means that you can get up to 500 free spins in one go. However, there is a slight fly in the ointment. If you win more than 440 free spins and the scatter combination for the free spins comes up again, only the scatter win counts and all the other selections are cancelled out. Obviously, as this is a video game, IGT are able to put different reels in the free spins bonus game from the reels used in the base game.
Customising the autospin function in Gypsy Moon
As with most IGT slots, you get a lot of control over this function. Basically, select your bet then press auto and select the number of spins you want. If you want to stop the spins, just click on stop auto. The spins will stop automatically if you don't have enough coins or credits to complete the number of spins that you requested.
There are a number of settings on the autospin button which allow you to customise the way it works. You can stop the autospin feature if free spins are triggered. If your win is of a certain amount, you can also stop the feature. If you click on this rule, you'll find out you can select the level of win at which you want autospin to stop - you may not want it to stop for very small wins. You can also control autospin in terms of your balance, stopping it if your balance increases or decreases by a certain amount.
If you liked Gypsy Moon, you'll love these...
IGT's Siberian Storm slot online has a similar idea to Gypsy Moon, in that you can abandon the traditional paylines, and choose 720 different ways to win.
It's another superbly crafted, great looking slot from IGT, with a base game and then a novel free spins game. You can win up to 96 more spins from a single starting free spin. What's more, you can keep adding free spins while you're playing. It has differently sized reels and vividly real looking tigers, and it's available on mobile and tablet, like all the other Slots Temple games.
If you love both wildlife and the mystery of the moon, Wolf Run is an ideal slot for you to try. Also from IGT, it has stacked wilds and is a five reel, 4-row video slot. There's a grey wolf and a brown wolf, and you'll hear them howling eerily on the atmospheric soundtrack. A bonus symbol can turn up on reels two, three or four, and three of them unlock a bonus feature, with free spins triggering more free spins - thanks IGT, we like that!
The stacked wilds in Wolf Run can appear on any of the reels and make a howling success of your bet.
But if the gypsy fortune teller has stolen your heart, you'll soon need another fix of Romany romance. Gypsy Fire is from Konami, who are big in video games in Japan. A five reel, three-row slot, it has some intriguing quirks in its gameplay. When you see the crystal ball symbol during the free spins feature, it immediately transforms into a scatter and becomes a multiplier for your bet. Simple but intriguing, Gypsy Fire is definitely worth a look.
Not to be left behind at the fortune telling booth, Play n Go have chucked out the crystal ball and gone for a game based on Tarot cards. Fortune Teller is a colourful game with a slightly eerie ambience. What sets Fortune Teller apart is that it has a bonus feature in which you enter a fortune telling session! You have to select Tarot cards and read what they foretell, with a special paytable to reward you. Picking games are not uncommon in slots but this one is particularly good.
There's a very intriguing and mysterious gypsy lady on the front of the simply titled Gypsy from High 5. This slot has a fantastic soundtrack of gypsy violins and some classic symbolism including a crystal ball with the lady's long fingers draped across it. You'll see the gypsy caravan, Tarot cards, crystal ball, and of course, the Gypsy herself, who is, needless to say, the game's wild.
There are 243 ways to win, instead of formal paylines. The magical bonus feature happens when one symbol splits into two, so that you can actually create winning combinations of up to 10, which would be worth 1,000 times your wager. In addition, every time this split occurs you get 10 free spins - and this is one of those excellent free spins features where you can trigger more free spins from within the feature. Definitely worth playing.
Gypsy Moon summary
A beautifully realised theme from IGT, and some refreshingly different gameplay on those versions where you can switch between paylines and "ways to win" modes. The free spins bonus game is exceptionally well structured and generous. All in all, one that's a worthy favourite for its many fans and one that's sure to become one of your favourites too.
