In July 2017 game studio Play’n GO launched anime-themed Moon Princess. This game is one of a new genre of slot machines designs known as Grid Slots, which break the mould of the classic 3×3 or 5×3 reel set-ups.

Grid slots are set-up in a format of … well a grid … of varying dimensions, and in the case of Moon Princess a 5×5 grid. Unlike with typical reels, the symbols appear to drop into the grid from the top (which essentially create 5 reels with 5 rows) but then as you hit winning combinations these combinations disappear and further symbols drop in to replace the empty grid spaces – giving you additional chances to win from the same bet (like a re-spin).

Moon Princess is one of many excellent Grid Slots that have been produced by the Play’n GO studio, who have created a really nice collection in this genre for those who enjoy grid slots – for example Reactoonz, Sweet Alchemy and Rise of Olympus.

Winning in Moon Princess

As the symbols drop into the 5×5 grid you are looking for initial win combinations of at least 3 vertically or horizontally connected symbols. Each winning combination is instantly collected and additional symbols will drop into the grid to form potentially new winning combinations.

Moon Princess is a feature-rich high volatility game where much of the 94.51% RTP is returned in the features. The game is based on 3 lucky princesses whose secret powers unlock 3 core features:

Feature 1 – Girl Power Feature:

This feature randomly appears on a non-winning spin and the feature you get will depend on which of the 3 Princess’ is present on the right of the screen at the time its triggers. They trigger the following features:

Love Princess: One set of symbols transformed into another symbol

Star Princess: One or two wild symbols added to the grid

Storm Princess: Two sets of symbols are destroyed and removed

Feature 2 – Free Spins:

Free spins are not triggered very often, but they typically pay very well. To trigger then you need the initial winning combinations to clear the entire 5×5 grid. Once free spins are activated you can choose which princess you want, and each carries a different number of free spins during which their ‘girl powers’ are active.

Feature 3 – Princess Trinity Feature:

With each spin, you can collect a winning combination on the princess symbols which fill a meter on the left of the screen. Once you fill the meter you win one free round, however, during this round the combined 3 girl powers of each of the princesses will be played to maximise the win.
