Wild Moon Saloon Slot Release

Stake Logic have released their latest high variance slot this week as Wild Moon Saloon hits the casinos with a stacked with free spins and mystery bonuses. The game will be available at many Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) casinos from 7th July 2022.

Wild Moon Saloon has been designed and built by Stake Logic in partnership with Hurricane Games as part of their Greenlogic™ partner program in which the developer utilises smaller studios to assist in their product design and release.

So, how will the latest launch on the platform look, and should you be diving in to get a piece of the action?

The stats published so far show a slot which promises high risk gaming across a traditional 5×4 reel set with slightly under average Return to Player. Here is Wild Moon Saloon by the numbers:

  • Reels: 5
  • Rows: 4
  • Paylines: 40
  • Variance: High (5/5 on Stake Logic’s own scale)
  • RTP: 95.8%
  • Stake: 20c to $100 per spin (double stakes available on Super Stake with enhancd odds)

In the tradition of great Wild West slots like NetEnt’s Dead or Alive and Quickspin’s Sticky Bandits, Wild Moon Saloon is designed with a cartoon-style backdrop, a dusty old town with saloon bars and sheriff’s offices, and lots of western iconography like whisky bottles and pistols. And of course, a cast of shady looking outlaws too! Five of a kind wins will trigger a 12.5x the bet payout when the highest paying outlaw appears.

Wild Moon Saloon Features

The gameplay in Stake Logic’s new slot is augmented by plenty of wild action and Mystery Bonus symbols which act as a trigger. There is also a free spins round to look out for.

The four types of Wild Modifier are as follows:

  • Random Wilds – up to 7 wilds are dropped into the grid at random.
  • Exploding Wilds – up to 3 wilds are dropped into the grid, taking out 4 surrounding positions each when they do.
  • Wild Reels – up to 3 reels become completely wild, increasing the odds of scoring a winning spin.
  • Rising Wilds – When wilds land, a respin is triggered. With each re-spin, the wilds on the reels move up one row at a time before dropping off the top. Respins continue in this way until no more wilds are visible on the reels.

Mystery Symbols will trigger any one of these wild features when they land during the base game.

And finally, Free Spins are available in the game when 3, 4 or 5 scatters land. In keeping with the game’s theme, to determine what kind of free spins a player gets, they must click on a table of cards to reveal one of four rounds which include higher numbers of spins, big win multipliers, guaranteed wild multipliers and premium symbols transformed into scatter pays versions.

Stake Logic’s own CCO, Olga Bajela, had this to say on the day of the game’s launch: “This is one of our most explosive slot launches to date and takes the popular Wild West theme and packs it with more bonus action than players will ever have experienced before.

Wild Moon Saloon is absolutely not for the faint-hearted but for those keen to ride towards the Free Spins bonus can potentially claim one of the greatest bounties in online slot playing legend.”

As any regular slots player knows, the Western genre of games is a highly competitive one, and if you are producing a high risk slot of this type you are going to be up against classics like Dead or Alive, Money Train and No Limit City’s fantastic Tombstone series including Deadwood and Tombstone RIP. Time will tell if Stake Logic’s new slot will hit the same heights. You can make your own mind up by playing at any of the casinos on our page of Canadian Online Slots.
