Slot machines love featuring all different types of animals. We’ve reviewed games with everything from elephants to cats and tigers to horses with most of the occupants of Noah’s Ark making appearances somewhere along the line.
Created by Williams Interactive (WMS), the beautifully drawn Lunaris slot machine looks like something from Avatar with the way it glows, but it plays in a way similar to the enjoyable Giants Gold, with nine reels, four of which are colossal, and a great free spins bonus with moving wilds.
If you’ve never seen a game with Colossal Reels, then this might take a little bit of getting used to. On the left hand side of the screen you’ll see five reels with four rows of symbols, then on the right there are five more reels that have 12 rows. In all there are 100 paylines in ‘Lunaris’ which gives you plenty of chances to get some wins.
You might be thinking that this high number of paylines will make the game rather expensive to play but that’s not the case. Each coin you stake covers two lines, the minimum cost therefore is £0.25 and the maximum £250. Only gamble what you can afford to lose.
The game is set in a magic forest where it’s night time and the moths have come out to play. The symbols in the game include star constellations, pink and white flowers.
The wild symbol is the lunar clock face and if this appears on the smaller set of reels then it’ll transfer over to the colossal reels. It substitutes for all the other symbols aside from the mystery and Bonus symbols. It also doesn’t appear on the first of the colossal reels.
The bonus symbol is the caterpillar and this also doesn’t appear on all of the reels. It can only be seen on the first, third and fifth of each set of reels. The same applies to the mystery symbol which is a moth, more about the importance of those soon. There’s also a reveal symbol, again this is a moth and the rest of the many reels are filled up with the four playing card suits.
Each set of reels has a unique set of reels. You really need to go through the paytable and full set of rules in order to fully understand this game. It’s not one of the simple straightforward slot machines produced by WMS Gaming. Learning the rules and taking the opportunity to play some free games will really help you before risking your real cash.
