Before you start spinning, it is worth taking a quick look at the controls. Blood Moon features very simple controls, so it shouldn’t take you long to get your head around them!
1. To start, take some time to check out the game rules, paytables and paylines by clicking the three lines in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
2. While still on the ‘options’ screen, use the buttons in the bottom right-hand corner to bring up your settings, including sound and other details. Click the ‘X’ in the bottom left-hand corner to close the screen.
3. Next, set your bet by clicking the poker chip symbol to the right of the reels.
4. Once you are happy with your wager, start spinning by clicking the large spin button beneath the poker chip icon.

6. Keep an eye on your balance, latest winnings and bet level by looking at the black bar running along the bottom of the screen.
Bet sizes & paytable
Ganapati has not been too generous with the available bets in Blood Moon; however, there should still be something to suit most placers, as bets range from 0.40 up to 20.00.
The highest possible winning combinations involve five matching symbols along a payline. If you are lucky, you may be able to get even more out of these combinations by involving a wild multiplier. The highest rewards for each symbol, excluding multipliers, are as follows:
- Diamond: 500
- Amethyst: 250
- Amber: 125
- Sapphire: 50
- Clubs/diamonds: 40
- Hearts/spades: 30
In addition to the wild multipliers that can appear in the base game, land three scatter symbols in any position to trigger 15 free spins. During the free spins round, every wild will have a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x attached. Find two or three additional scatters during the bonus round to receive an extra 2 or 15 free spins respectively. The round ends when you run out of free spins.
In conclusion, we really enjoyed playing Blood Moon. Although we couldn’t quite define which category it fits in best, the gameplay is incredibly smooth and the graphics are beautiful. The wild multipliers are a really nice touch and enable even lower winning combinations to become very rewarding, even in the base game. The free spins were a little elusive but not too tricky to trigger, and we liked that every wild came with a multiplier during these rounds.
If you enjoyed playing Blood Moon as much as we did, you might also want to check out Microgaming’s Immortal Romance slot. Based on the popular vampire genre, this game is packed full of wonderful graphics and exciting bonus features to keep players on the edge of their seats. If you would rather stick with the same game maker, you will be pleased to know that we have plenty of free Ganapati slots to play right here at Slots Temple.
