Graphics and Theme
The game is set in New Orleans during the Victorian era. When the sun goes down, and the full moon rises the humans of New Orleans transform into gold-thirsty werewolves that will stop at nothing to get what they want. The werewolf theme is reflected in the game’s graphics. The backdrop to the reels features the grounds of a spooky, moonlit Victorian mansion. Two twisting willow trees sit either side of the reels with long grass swaying in the evening’s fog in the foreground. The reels are encased in a stone border with two stone wolves sitting on top of the reels either side of a lunar calendar.
The soundtrack is slow, scary and adds to the overall spooky theme. You’ll hear a sluggish drumbeat, faint wolf howls, distant screeches and a deep organ noise. It makes you feel like there’s something just behind you ready to strike. When you hit spin, the reels flicker, and you will hear the lunar calendar clunk into action before each reel comes to a halt one by one. Yggdrasil has done such a great job and making you feel like you’re watching a horror movie rather than playing a slot game.
Blood Moon symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of the four playing card suits. In order of value, it goes from diamonds to clubs, to spades, and then hearts. Hearts are worth 130 coins for five of a kind. The high paying symbols are made up of character symbols. There are two male characters and two female characters, each with their own colour. The red female character is the most valuable and is worth 1000 coins for five of a kind.
There is also a free spins bonus symbol and four wild symbols that can substitute for any regular symbol.

Blood Moon Wilds lunar calendar
The lunar calendar sits above the reels and displays the current moon phase. It spins with the reels to reveal a new moon phase every time you hit spin. When a full moon appears, all the high paying symbols turn into wild symbols to help you make winning combinations. During the free spins feature a blood moon will appear instead of the full moon. When this happens, all high paying symbols will transform into wild symbols and hold their position on the reels for the rest of the free spins round.
