Assassin Moon Review

Assassin Moon is one of the latest slots released by Triple Edge Gaming for Microgaming casinos only. Among other things, what makes the slot particularly deserving of attention is that it features the extremely popular but rare game mechanics, found only in HyperHold™ branded games.

On top of that, Assassin Moon features a truly unique theme that we hardly ever see in slot games. The main protagonist is a gorgeous spy and a deadly assassin, aka Luna from Monte Carlo. She sets out to assassinate everyone who needs to be eliminated to save the world, inside a luxurious private villa, lit in the murderous light of the assassin moon.

The Basics

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of Assassin Moon, we will first detail the slot’s basic attributes.

  • Developer: Triple Edge Studios
  • Publisher: Microgaming
  • RTP: 96.08%
  • Volatility: High
  • Paylines: 25 fixed (left to right)
  • Maximum possible multiplier: 12,500x the total bet amount
  • HyperHold™ Bonus: Yes
  • Mega Jackpot: Yes

Signs and Symbols in the game revolve around the theme of casinos, luxurious lifestyles and, of course, assassination! There are dices, expensive cars, martinis, a guy with a pirate patch (main villain/target), our gorgeous spy-assassin protagonist, the usual card suit symbols (Ace, King, Queen, Joker, 10 - 2), and plenty of others that we are about to discuss in detail.

Scatter Symbols and Free Spins

The full moon acts as the scatter symbol in Assassin Moon, and you will get 10 free spins as soon as you manage to land 3 of them in the base game. They need not be aligned as scatters will pay, irrespective of their positions on the reels. If you are lucky enough to get a Mega Moon scatter symbol during any of the free spins, it would be treated the same as getting 9 scatter symbols on the reel. Consequently, your remaining free spins will increase by 10.

Scatters and Winning Stakes

Any win with scatter symbols will be multiplied by the total stake, which is the summation of all bets placed. Assassin Moon rewards players further by adding all wins from scatter symbols to all wins from bets placed on the paylines.

Wilds and Scatters

The wild symbol can stand for almost all symbols in Assassin Moon, helping the player land massive winning combinations. However, wild symbols cannot replicate scatter symbols.

HyperHold™ Bonus

Finally, it is time to discuss the unique jackpot slot mechanics which HyperHold™ brings to Assassin Moon. If you manage to land 6 or more scatters on the reels at any point in the game, you will activate the HyperHold™ bonus features. We have highlighted the important bits about this mega bonus feature next:

  • During the HyperHold™ rounds, players stand to win any one of the three jackpots
  • The 3 jackpots are called Mini, Midi, and Mega in accordance with their potential multiplier values in ascending order respectively
  • In order to get a massive 12,500x multiplier, aka the mega jackpot, you must land 15 scatters on the reels (Mega Moon= 9 scatters)
  • Once the HyperHold™ bonus round comes to an end, the value from each scatter/moon symbol is paid out

Should You Play It?

Although you may not win the Mega Jackpot right away, Assassin Moon offers so many ways to win that chances are, you may end up winning something quite lucrative if you can stay at it long enough. Thanks to a unique theme and the interesting game mechanics introduced by the HyperHold™ bonus rounds, we would say this one is a must-try.
