There is rarely such a vibrant and diverse game selection as the one found in Thunderkick’s database. With categories ranging from mythology, through real life and everyday elements such as the cinema, to wholly immersive storylines, these slot games have more to them than a simple spinning mechanism.
The team of developers behind the Full Moon Romance title pride themselves on the slot’s balanced combination between light game play action and massive rewards that make it worth your while. What is even better about it is the 1950s theme that prevails across the reels, over the backdrop and all the way to the sound and animation effects. The story revolves around two sweethearts, Jack and Rosie, and their typical 50s date night at the drive-through cinema which slowly turns into a real-life movie experience. Namely, they represent the relatively frequent werewolf theme at the time, and even reflect the style of the age, each with their own set of clothes and accessories, as you will see with just a few spins of the reels.
Considering that it is all about the theme, there is no way one could describe the slot’s details without identifying all the different ways in which it is presented. Starting from the more minute details mentioned above, such as the background of the grid and the sound effects, there is nothing that signifies the 50s more than the symbols themselves.
For lower value symbols, the developers have employed the standard cards J, Q, K and A, while higher paying symbols on this reel grid are represented by different story elements. The characters themselves, Jack and Rosie, are arguably the most impressive, especially since they appear as a 3x1 symbol model and cover one entire reel out of the five present. Jack is a typical 50s cool-kid sweetheart, dressed in a puffy red and yellow jacket that aims to balance out the bouquet of roses he is holding in his hand.
Rosie is even more straightforward in her representation of the theme, with the knee-length dress and tidy hair-do, as well as the dog bone necklace making her appear as the ultimate sweetheart. In order to further emphasize these elements’ importance, both the dog bone and the bouquet of roses are also presented as two additional separate symbols on the reels, with a medium payout value.
Special symbols are also present, in the sense that they trigger something other than the base game, just like Jack and Rosie do with their 3x1 reel coverage. Just the slot’s name Full Moon is indicative enough of the presence of a moon symbol, which is the Scatter of the game play, and the element that triggers the bonus round. This symbol is further unique in the sense that it is the only one that cannot be replaced by the golden Wild, which otherwise serves to help complete winning combinations across all paylines.
Speaking of paylines, this 5x3 slot has a total of 15 paylines, triggering payouts when the combination starts from the utmost left. Normally, players need three identical symbols to land on the same active payline in order to get a payout on their stake, the amount of which can range anywhere between 10p and £100. Considering the slot’s relatively high RTP of 96.1%, players shouldn’t be expected to wait too long for such an outcome.
Once you are familiar with all the symbols, elements and bet sizing, placing and payout mechanisms, it is ultimately important that you also learn all the different ways they can reward you. Other than the regular ‘three-symbol per active payline’ principle, the aforementioned special symbols also trigger additional features, as explained below.
The Clone feature refers to the two highest paying symbols on the slot reels – Jack and Rosie, which generally appear on the reels in a 3-row high format. Stacked like that, they can land on each of the five reels on the grid, but the Clone feature is triggered solely when they land and cover the 1st reel top to bottom. Should this happen with either of the two character symbols, players will witness the symbol cloning itself onto the next reels. Those that are extra lucky can see this feature extend across the entire slot grid and cover all five reels, ultimately providing a most high-paying win.
As usual, the Free Spins bonus feature is regularly triggered by the Scatter symbol, even though some slots which feature multiple rewarding symbols could have a separate one for this option solely. A minimum of three Scatters, as is the case with all other symbols on the grid, is required to help you trigger the Full Moon free spins. This minimum will award you 10 freebies, while 4 such symbols will see you collect 15 freebies, while the maximum of 5 Full Moons, each for one reel on the slot grid, will see you claim the maximum of 20 free spins.
What is more, this feature can be retriggered once during the actual bonus free spins round, meaning players can claim a total of 40 free spins at a time, should they land the right symbols. The most interesting thing about the Full Moon free spins round is that the sweethearts, Jack and Rosie, change into werewolves – as typically as any 50s theme gets – and they act as the same symbol, so that they offer greater winning potential for the player during the round.
Thunderkick has been known to release games of much greater volatility, but its immersive story and relation to a real-life past is what makes the slot a truly desirable destination on any online casino floor. A final note for Full Moon Romance slot players is its platform compatibility – its instant play design allows players to access it via desktop, laptop or mobile device screens equally optimized. Full Moon is available now at the latest new UK casinos offering Thunderkick games.
