Other Helpful Additions
Mr Green: Moonlight also comes with question-mark and i help icons. Both of these detail much the same thing, basic game and winning information, but the i button does this within the game and the question-mark opens a secondary text page. The page accessed by the i button also lists all payout information, paylines and bonus info.
The game can also be muted by simply toggling the sound button located on the lower right of the game main screen.
Despite bringing to mind the board-game Clue, Mr. Green: Moonlight does not appear to be based off any preexisting property. Instead what we have is a game which appears to be based off the United Kingdom circa the Industrial Revolution. Our titular character, the man in Green, appears to be some form of gun-wielding werewolf hunter.
Other Features and Bonuses
The moonlight linked wild symbol in Mr Green: Moonlight comes in the form of a blue moon, though it appears far more often than that term would suggest. These can substitute for any other symbols except the scatter. These can appear on reels 2,3 and 4 in the main game. These spread across the reels, turning two or more nearby symbols into additional wilds.
The blood moon linked wild is guaranteed with each free spin on reel 2,3 or 4. This can substitute for all symbols except scatter and multiplier symbols.
The scatter symbol in this game appears as a silver bullet against a background of blue. These do not need to appear on active paylines in order to generate wins. Gaining 3 or more of these in a single spin gives the player access to 10 free spins.
In addition to the scatter symbols we have the free spin multiplier feature. This appears on reel 5 and increased the win multiplier by one per win, up to a maximum of 5. This is then removed from reel 5 when the maximum multiplier is reached. If free spins are won while this is on the board the amount of free spins won will be multiplied by this number.
The free spins game in Mr Green: Moonlight is activated once the player gains access to 3 or more scatter symbols on a single spin. These can be retriggered from within the free spins game per the following rules:
- 2 scatter symbols give 5 extra spins when gained
- 3 scatter symbols give 10 extra free spins when gained
- The number of extra free spins are not multiplied by the free spins multiplier.
How to Play:
Basic play for Mr Green: Moonlight is as simple as a player selecting a coin value and level and clicking spin. Alternatively the player can maximise their possible bet by simply clicking on the Max Bet button to the right of the spin icon.
Clicking the autoplay button allows the player to go through a selection of different amounts of autospins. From here the user can also click on the advanced settings button in order to manually select different stopping scenarios. These include on any win, when free spins are won, if a single win exceeds an entered amount, or if cash increased or decreases by an entered amount.
Overall Design and Usability:
A simple looking but ultimately very attractive looking pokie. Mr. Green uses a colour scheme which is mostly reliant on shades of, you guessed it, green. Together with the foggy background and the beams of moonlight which pierce the sky the look of this game does a lot to encourage the feeling of mystery and intrigue. This extends to the music and audio, all of which are very well suited to the game. All around this is a great effort by NetEnt.
When it comes to usability this game falls somewhere in the middle of the pack in terms of what you might expect. The pokie itself runs well, and showed no issues regarding reliability during our testing procedure, though it could use a few additional options. Especially useful, and so often missed, are the graphical options. As these allow users on older and less powerful devices to get in on the action they are sorely missed.

Not the most complex pokie which we have ever reviewed, but still one which has a lot to offer. The simple bonus structure here is really helped by the splitting wilds, which appear constantly and are great at giving the impression of small victories. Combine this with a great theme which has been created with obvious care and you have a slot game which is a lot of fun. Mr. Green: Moonlight might not hold the attention of the veteran player for long but it is certainly worth having a look if you're out for something new. Simple, great looking and fun.
