Ainsworth Game Technology

This four-level progressive video slot features a unique mix of free-game events that award accumulative prizes on the way to a top progressive jackpot resetting at $5,000.

The base game is a five-line video slot available to casinos in 25-line and 50-line configurations. During primary-game play, six, seven, eight or nine scattered “Moon” symbols trigger the “Big Hit Feature,” one of the paths to the progressives. The Moon symbols stay in place for three free re-spins. A total of 15 Moon symbols triggers the top progressive.

The lower-level prizes—static bonus prizes, consisting of a $10 Mini, a $50 Minor and a $150 Major—are awarded for varying numbers of Moon symbols.

Randomly during primary game play, the “Extra Bonus Big Hit Feature” will be triggered. Three free re-spins are awarded, with a big Moon symbol appearing over each of the three middle reels and counting as nine Moon symbols toward the Grand Jackpot. Every Moon counts for one or two free games. If one or more additional Moon symbols appear, they are held in position as a random bonus credit prize is awarded, and the number of re-spins is reset to three.

The feature is complete when no re-spins remain or the Grand Jackpot is won. At the end of the feature, the bonus credit prizes are awarded and the accumulated free spins begin. During the fee games, the Goddess symbol is wild on each of the three middle reels. “Goddess Stack” substitutes for all symbols on reel 5 only.

The progressive and all three bonus prizes also can be randomly triggered with three bonus symbols during primary game play.

Mystic Moon is one of four initial games in Ainsworth’s Big Hit series.
