Moonshine Slots

MoonshineMoonshine is a redneck themed slot machine, offered by Microgaming, with ridiculous looking characters on the reels, with graphics that looks very crude, yet entertaining at the same time. It’s a somewhat unusual theme choice, but it seems to work in this case, and the game looks fun to play despite the way the design was approached.

While the theme is somewhat unusual, a lot of other things about this slot are typical for the category it is in, as it offers 5 reels, 25 lines and a mix of bonus games, with free spins, with multipliers, scatter symbols and wilds.

Features of Moonshine

The features of Moonshine are normal these days, including one wild with high prizes, a scatter symbol and a bonus symbol that brings with it a feature which results in free spins with multipliers.

Grandma with a shotgun is shown in the wild symbol, the only one that can award the 8,000x jackpot by creating its own combinations, though it also substitutes for the other regular symbols. The only symbols that don’t get any help from the wild are the bonus and the scatter. Other than that, if the Grandma wild lands in the right position she will be able to help out with the creation of a new combo.


The Sheriff symbol is another important feature, though it’s not as big as in other slot machines. The only role it has here is to trigger a cash prize, which is offered for 3 to 5 symbols, and it’s worth between 2x and 60x the total bet.

Free Games Feature

A bonus feature of sorts is started whenever the Moonshine Bonus symbol is present in scattered positions on the reels, with at least three representatives. Depending on the number of symbols that triggered it, you start off with 3, 4 or 5 free spins, all of them with a 1x multiplier.


The bonus feature comes next though, the symbols on the reels changing to Moon themed icons. You click on them, and they will reveal if you’ve won bigger multipliers or additional free spins. Each symbol has +1 Free Spin or +1 Multiplier written on it. You keep clicking on the blocks and improving your feature until you discover the Start block.


At that point, the free spins will start, with the number of rounds and the multipliers which you’ve collected in the bonus game.

Betting options and jackpots

Moonshine requires that you use a single coin to get the reels moving, meaning that you only have to activate a single line. Ideally though, you will activate all 25 lines. The minimum line bet is of one coin of $0.01, but you can use up to 5 coins and their values can be up to $1. The $5 maximum line bet brings you a wager of up to $125.

The Grandma wild is capable of creating its own combos of up to five, and it’s the one that will offer the 8,000x jackpot, meaning up to $40,000.

Design and symbols

The redneck theme, with the focus on moonshine and on a family that doesn’t look quite right, can be quite funny to play on, with graphics that are amusing, especially when the family members are shown. There are also foods that they enjoy and huge pigs among the symbols. The humans look almost like caricatures, and since it’s a redneck themed game, that’s exactly the right way to approach the topic.


Symbols: Moonshine Bonus (bonus), Grandma (8,000x, wild), Sheriff (60x bet, scatter), Grandpa (500x, Redneck playing music (400x), Tough Redneck (200x), Pig (100x), Pumpkin Pie (90x), Pan Fried Beans (80x), Grits (60x), Sardines (50x) and Fried Green Tomatoes (40x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s an unusual game, but one which does well with its features and its biggest prizes. Even the graphics are OK, when you consider the topic that they’re approaching.

You will find Moonshine at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
