Gypsy Moon is a 5-reel video slot from IGT, which allows you to choose between 30 paylines or 243 paylines.
With a theme based on the gypsy, you will find crystal balls and tarot cards among the symbols on the reels. The game is pretty straightforward, with the only interesting departure from the norm in the bonus round, where you get to choose how many free spins you will get.
Gypsy Moon Slot Layout
The slot is a basic 5-reel slot with 3 symbols visible on each reel. When choosing your bet size, you have two options for paylines. You can bet 30 coins to activate 30 paylines, or you can bet 50 coins to play all possible 243 paylines. It should be pretty clear which one is a better choice!
All of the symbols are drawn from the mystical world of the gypsy, with tarot cards, crystal balls, the full moon, and of course the namesake gypsy symbol which is a wild.
The paytable shows that the highest payouts arise from combinations with the full moon symbol.
But unlike many slots with a bonus round, the pays from the normal game aren’t bad.
The Bonus Round
To trigger the bonus in Gypsy Moon, you will need the first three or more reels to have the bonus symbol located somewhere. They are a scatter pay, but that actually won’t matter if you are playing 243 lines anyway.
Here’s a typical bonus trigger:
The interesting part is what happens next. You need to choose from one of four possible combinations of free spins and multipliers.
- 7 Free Spins, at 5X
- 10 Free Spins, at 3X
- 15 Free Spins, at 2X
- 30 Free Spins, at 1X
When you are confronted with this choice, consider this… If you multiply each number of spins by the multiplier, you’ll get a useful metric for comparing the values. If you look at that, you can see that the smallest number of spins (7) times the multiplier (5X) yields a value of 35. For all of the other three choices the values are the same at 30. So, on this game, your best bet in the long run is to choose the fewest spins, with the biggest multiplier.
Hopefully you will have some luck on those seven spins!
Gypsy Moon offers a typical video slot experience, with the unique twist of choosing the format of your free spins. I advise that you always choose the 243 payline option, and always choose the 7-spin bonus round. By doing that, you will lower the house advantage as much as you can.
