About the game
Found under the reels, the game can be tweaked with ease. The view payout button is found right under the corners of the reels, it is quite hard to miss, as a large moonshine bottle represents it. Under this button, you can find the complete user interface.
On the far left, there is the display for the total balance you have available to you. To the right of that, there is a coin display that you can adjust with the plus and minus button found underneath the display. Following that, display are four more displays, which are for the lines, coins, bet, and winnings. All in all, Moonshine can be controlled through just the simple click of a mouse.
Symbols in the game
Players will be able to see all kinds of different characters on the reels, such as an old man smoking a pipe, an old woman in a rocking chair holding down a double barreled shotgun, kiwis, sardines, pigs, a hillbilly playing a banjo and of course, the moonshine itself. Each symbol has their own colour scheme, which makes them stand out extremely well. In an odd twist, there are no 10, J, Q or K low-value symbols here. Microgaming decided to go against the norm with such and it has proven to be a wise move.
The Grandma symbol is a wild symbol. This means it substitutes for other symbols to complete winning combinations, except the Sheriff and the Moonshine Bonus symbols. The Sheriff symbol is a scatter symbol. This means it does not need to appear in a line on an enabled payline to win. It can be scattered anywhere on the five reels, provided 3 or more Sheriff symbols appear.
Speaking of bonus features, there is a wild symbol that will help you win by substituting itself in order to complete any active paylines you may have. These wild symbols offer some of the biggest rewards at hand too if you manage to land multiple wilds on the reels. There is also a scatter symbol in this game, which is the Sherriff symbol. These symbols can land anywhere, as they will still pay out and you will earn a reward that is dependent on the amount of Scatters you secure.
There is one last feature that players should be aware of, which is the Moonshine Bonus. Landing three or more of the related symbol anywhere on the reels activates this bonus, when in effect you will win free spins that have a bonus attached to them. You can potentially win up to 18 free spins with a 4x multiplier to boot.
