Bison Moon Review
Released by Games Global, Bison Moon is one of the slot machines that Northern Lights Gaming has developed for their platform, as an exclusive. With the North American bison in the lead role, and other wildlife creatures present as well, it’s not the most unique game you will ever see, not even after you take the special features into account.
The 5 reels available in Bison Moon are going to give you 25 win lines. Once you take into account the game’s free spins, Link & Win respins, and regular wilds, it’s not a surprise that it could pay up to 12,500x the bet (RM250,000). On the other hand, neither is the slot’s high volatility a surprise, though the 96.08% RTP somewhat sweetens it.
Betting and Prizes
You’re getting the option to spend only RM0.10 for the next spin, but there is also a value of up to RM20 that can be selected for the same 25 lines.
Bison Moon’s top jackpot of 12,500x the stake could get you a cash prize of up to RM250,000, with the right wager. That’s not at all unusual for that kind of highly volatile slot machine, so what you really want to see is a good RTP. This game delivers just that, with a return of 96.08%.
Bison Moon Game Features
You’re going to use the wild symbols, if they show up in the right spot, as replacements for the symbols that can form combinations. The requirements for a combo are the same, you need 3+ matching and wild symbols on a line, going left to right.
A major feature, called Link & Win in pretty much every Games Global slot that uses it, will give the player 3 respins when triggered. You’re going to have to land 6+ Red Moon symbols, each one with a prize shown on its side. Besides the triggering symbols, you’re trying to get more Red Moons to land, as this resets the respins. No other symbols may show up. At the end, you collect all prizes from Red Moons. A Mega Jackpot of 5,000x the stake is added to the pot, if you have all 15 Red Moons present.
For the final feature, which gives us 10 free spins, you need special scatters on the middle three reels. The difference is that there are mega-sized symbols landing on the reels 2-4 now, so you can get up to 9 of the same type there.
Theme & Design
It’s a simple Bison-themed slot machine, the way many others are. The rest of the symbols revolve around creatures of North America’s prairie, so there are wolves, eagles, bears, and a raccoon. The lesser symbols are showing Royals.
Bison Moon gives you plenty of features and big-enough prizes to be taken into account. It doesn’t have a single original element in its design, but it’s still a solid game.
