Tiger Moon Pokie Game
If there’s one poker machine theme that stands head and shoulders above the rest then that must unquestionably be the Orient. Admittedly, there’s plenty of inspiration to be taken from one of the oldest civilisations in the world and you’ll find that everyone from Aristocrat to Playtech, and many more besides, have tackled the style with great success. Tiger Moon, which we’re looking at here, is a Microgaming offering that most definitely fits the bill as a great game in its own right and we’re sure you’ll come to the same conclusion after checking out the full review below.
Game Type: Video Pokie
Win Lines: 243 ways to win
Special Features: Wilds, scatters, free spins and multipliers
Top Prize: 12,500 coins
Tiger Moon is effectively a Reel Power game, at least in the context that Aristocrat fans will understand. For those that choose to play exclusively online, that means 243 ways to win and ensures that any adjacent symbols are likely to lead to a win when you land three or more at once. This game throws in a few more options than many of its contemporaries, including the return of the Bet Max button and a choice of coins alongside their denominations. Aside from that, it’s business as usual with fixed combinations and a choice between manual and automatic play.
Microgaming’s design team are masters at creating great pokie features and while Tiger Moon focuses on quality over quantity, that’s certainly no reason to be put off. We’ll start, as always, with the wild card which is represented in this case by a Chinese coin, characterised by the square hole in the middle. It appears only on reels two and four and, in all honesty, is a little underwhelming during the base game.
However, it is during the free spins bonus where things really start to get interesting. Three, four or five tiger scatters will trigger eight, sixteen or 24 free spins respectively. The action plays out as it does on the base game with the important addition of multipliers to the wild cards. The second reel wild will multiply relevant wins by four, while a wild on the fourth reel that participates in a prize combination will increase the value fivefold. The great thing about these wilds is that they will technically multiply each other – any prize that benefits from both the second and fourth reel wilds will be worth a stunning twenty times its standard value.
Game Culture’s Opinion
If you’re a fan of the Oriental theme then Tiger Moon is instantly an excellent choice of game. However, there’s much more to it than just looks and we’re sure that feature fans will enjoy the chance to see massive prizes spinning in during the bonus game thanks to one of the largest multipliers in all of poker machine gaming!
