Fire up Play N Go’s Moon Princess and there’s no doubt it’s going to ring more than a few familiar notes for a specific crowd, especially if that crowd consists of kids growing up in the 90s, who had an abundant exposure to Japanese animation/manga. Why? Because Moon Princess is a rather unsubtle copy of Sailor Moon.
This choice of theme might not appeal to everyone but this 2017 video slot is not all about the space-bound princesses. What will appeal to many more players is that this slot gives out potentially huge wins. You can win up to 5,000 times your bet! So, don’t let all the pretty pink in this game deceive you – there are serious wins to be made on this Play N Go slot.

Moon Princess bonus features
Moon Princess has a 5×5 grid and uses Cascading Symbols as its game style rather than conventional reels. This is also a feature that might appeal to some players more than others. However, if cascading symbols is your kind of thing, then Moon Princess is definitely worth your time as it’s fun to play, what with enticing and lucrative special features as well as high-grade visuals and sounds that make this game feel ultra-modern. This type of game is gradually becoming Play N Go’s forte.
All special features make use of one of the three Girl Powers. The mascots of the game are three princesses, each with her own special ability that is used differently according to the special feature triggered. At all times, there will be one of the girls standing on the right-hand side of the grid, waiting to trigger her power.
High-paying symbols (following the Moon Wild) are the girls’ symbols themselves. A combination of any of the girls’ symbols will also garner a win. The lower-paying symbols are the girls’ totem symbols. The Transforming Win feature is also a favourite for players looking for those winning combinations. When you make a winning combo, the symbol in the centre transforms into a wild while all the others vanish.
This feature takes the shape of the Moon Wild. Substituting for any other symbol, it will also reward with x50 the original stake if five symbols appear on a payline.
Moon Princess Free Spins
Triggering Free Spins in Moon Princess is somewhat of a challenge. You have to clear the grid of all the symbols and it’s triggered automatically. Free Spins mode features quite a few additional rewarding game mechanics.
First off, upon launching Free Spins, you get to choose one of the girls’ powers – Love, Star, or Storm. The girl power chosen stays active throughout the free spins round (note: the Princess Trinity Feature is not active at this time). Each one comes with a different number of free spins and higher winning potential, which are inversely proportional. This means that the fewer free spins the girl offers, the higher the winning potential:
- Love – 4 free spins + Princess Trinity Bonus active for additional 4 free spins
- Star – 5 free spins + Princess Trinity Bonus active for additional 3 free spins
- Storm – 8 free spins + Princess Trinity Bonus active for additional 2 free spins
There is also a multiplier that doesn’t reset and can grow up to x20. Also, fully charging the meter can give you additional free spins up to a maximum of 20. And clearing the whole grid during Free Spins Mode gives you a bonus of x200.
Girl Power feature
Girl Power – There are 3 types – 1 for each girl – that is triggered randomly during a non-winning spin. The next power to be triggered will be signalled by the girl with that power standing next to the grid. Every time a power is used, the girl will change to the next one.
They are as follows:
- Love – a set of symbols randomly transforms into another set
- Star – Up to 2 wilds can appear
- Storm – 2 sets of any symbols are destroyed
Princess Trinity Bonus feature
Princess Trinity – Charge the meter in the lower-left corner to trigger the Princess Trinity Free Round. It has 3 sections and can only be filled with winning combinations made with the princess’ symbols. The more symbols you get in a win, the more sections of the meter you fill up.
When this happens, the girls take turns performing their Girl’s Power:
- 5x – fills up 3 sections
- 4x – fills up 2 sections
- 3x – fills up 1 section
Moon Princess jackpot
While Moon Princess doesn’t have a jackpot in the traditional sense, there’s a lot of potential for high wins. At maximum bet value, you can earn a winning amount of 500,000. Also, clearing the grid during free spins gives you 200 times your win.
RTP and volatility
This game has an RTP of 96.5%, which puts it within the average range. However, the high volatility promises a gambling experience that is packed with excitement, as big wins are never out of reach.
