The original Lucky Lady Moon was a decent online slot, but I never felt like coming back to it after playing a couple of sessions on it. BGaming is about to change all that, as they have taken the original and added some serious Megaways spice, resulting in a game that hardcore slot players will love. As we all know, Megaways means 117,649 ways to win… but not this time! Lucky Lady Moon Megaways features up to 200,704 pay ways, a chunky 97% RTP – well above average – but the bad news is that whilst the original supposedly had a maximum win of 27,000x your stake, my understanding is that the top win in this Megaways version is only 6,000x your stake? That’s a little bit disappointing, let's be honest.
Wild symbols act as 2x multipliers in this game, and the familiar pink moon is back as the scatter to take you away to the land of the free spins. Once you get there, you will be presented with a multi-segment free spins wheel where you will randomly be awarded between 5 to 15 free spins and a multiplier between 2x to 25x. We have yet another name for cascading/rolling/avalanche reels, too; this time, they are called “refilling” reels. You also have the option to purchase the bonus at a scandalously low price of just 60x your current stake, which is an option I recommend if you like playing slots that way. You also have the opportunity to increase your odds of hitting a bonus in the regular game for 50% extra on top of your regular bet. I have to say, 50% feels a little bit steep – most games only charge 25% - see the bonus section for further analysis.

lucky lady moon megaways slot theme, stakes, pays & symbols
Theme…. Wow, this is a tough one. You know what? I don’t have any idea; it’s well… the lucky lady, chosen by God, has been transported to the moon – not using 1960s technology on a Saturn 5 rocket, you understand, no, the lucky lady doesn’t put up with that risky business, she gets a free flight on a futuristic spaceship that humans are incapable of developing. When the lucky lady got to the moon, she realised that the unknown entity that transported her there had also left her a tonne of money to hand out to people who worshipped her by playing this slot machine. How’s that for a theme? It doesn’t get any crazier than this!
Let’s hit the paytable, the scatter symbol tops the table with a payout of 50x your bet, but I hope you have a bag of four-leaf clovers stashed nearby as you will need six scatter symbols to receive that payday! The one you are likely to hit is, of course, the three scatter combination – that pays out 5x your bet. Not quite as exciting, sadly. Let's look at the regular symbols next; we’ve got a ladybug paying 10x for six-of-a-kind, dropping sharply to 5x for five-of-a-kind, and as for the lower combinations…. I believe “not newsworthy” is the term. The diamond pays 5x for all six or 2x for five; the gold coin pays 3x for six, of 1x for five… I have to say; these last two “high-paying” combinations are pretty lame, really at just 2x for the horseshoe and 1x for the clover; I mean, come on, guys, I know it’s a Megaways slot and everything, but I’ve seen some amazing Megaways paytables recently – you could have come up with a better math model than this. I mean, the six royal symbols don’t even pay 1x for six-of-a-kind!
The betting range starts at €0.30 and tops out at €35.00 per spin. If you’re a hardcore gambler, go ahead and bet €35.00 every 2 seconds, but I wouldn’t recommend playing any higher than €6.00 on a game like this.
base game & MODIFIERS
The base game looks like a typical Megaways slot, except it has been given a full redecorating. We have six reels, each of which can randomly divide into between two and seven rows, with each spin creating a unique number of Megaways. The number of Megaways is shown in the top right corner of the screen. There is also an additional horizontal row above the reels which scrolls to the left and is not part of the main reel set; however, if a symbol appears on this top row that would aid you in creating a winning line, it will be included in the combination – this can be very handy indeed!
I guess the developer felt that they needed to come up with a new name for rolling reels, and as they picked “refill”, it’s only natural that the act of dropping new symbols into play is called “refilling”! There’s nothing special to add; winning combinations are immediately removed from the screen and replaced by new symbols, which can help you complete further wins. Sometimes this can seemingly go on forever!
lucky lady moon megaways slot free spins feature
Time to talk about the free spins! You will need at least three scatters to trigger the bonus wheel, which will determine your multiplier (from 2x to 25x) and the number of free spins you will receive (between five and 15). It isn’t clear if your chances of hitting extra spins or a larger multiplier increase by hitting four or more scatters, but I hope that is the case – it’s only fair!
Once you reach the free spins feature, things can get seriously crazy! I have to say that I seemed to get a lot of dead spins in the free spins bonus round, but the hits I got were pretty chunky. I can’t even imagine how mad it could get if you hit 15 spins at 25x, and the game decided to give you a constant stream of winning combinations. I guess this is why the game has a winnings cap of 6000x your stake – without this, it would surely be easy to exceed that amount during a good run.
Note that you can even retrigger this feature as well! Retriggers will reopen the bonus wheel, and your new spins will be played according to the results of this secondary wheel. Once your retriggered spins are over, you will return to your original bonus round. You can retrigger the bonus indefinitely, so it’s possible to enter a bonus within a bonus within a bonus.
bonus buy feature
Argh! This is a game that makes me hate that the UKGC have outlawed bonus buy features for UK players. For a cost of just 60x your current bet, you can buy access straight to the bonus wheel, which has to be the bargain of the century in my book.
bonus chance feature
This is a tough one – 50% on top of your regular stake in return for twice as many chances of hitting a bonus round. That almost sounds like it’s perfectly fair when you say it like that – 50% for 2x the chances… it’s a 1:1 deal, right? Not exactly. You ALWAYS pay the extra 50%, but you don’t ALWAYS get a bonus round. You could have this option enabled and still play 100 spins without hitting any scatters. It’s a tough call – most games only charge 25%, and I didn’t notice that the scatters dropped at a far higher rate when this option was enabled. Still, I would have to play at least 10,000 spins to say anything confidently, and I can’t do that for a review. If you feel it’s a fair trade, go for it, but I would buy the bonus – it's only 60x your stake!
lucky lady moon megaways slot review final thoughts
Ah, Megaways… I Went off these games for a while because the market was flooded with them, but the last few I have played have been utterly fantastic. I would say we are witnessing the second coming of Megaways, and it’s far superior to the first one. Try this game today – it’s a winner!
