A lot of people think that animals are a favorite theme among the developers of IGT, so it is no wonder that the Coyote Moon slot machine game is pretty well made.

The background of the reels is of a solid color, which makes the reels look neat and the symbols are a lot better to see. The outer surrounding of the reels resembles the great outdoors of the American Southwest area. The overall graphic design of Coyote Moon shows many different colors such as blue, green, red, pink, white, black, and a whole lot of orange and sandy brown.
When you spin the reels, the constant background sound effects that you will hear while playing this slot game come from different animals – crickets singing, owls hooting, and the eerie howling of the coyote. Even the “cold gust of the wind” sound effects will make you think that you are truly spending the night outdoors!

In Coyote Moon online video slot game, the card deck symbols that are used are 9, 10, J, Q, K and Ace. Other regular symbols used naturally complement the theme of Coyote Moon such as the White-tailed Deer, Lizard, Hummingbird, and the Cow Skull.
The Wild Symbol is the Howling Coyote Moon symbol. It acts as a substitute for all other symbols (except for the scatter symbol) in order to help you complete a winning combination. When you are able to get winning combinations with multiple Howling Coyote Moon wild symbols on an active pay line, you will be given varying prizes (refer to the Paytable).
It is entirely possible for you to get up to 4 or more Howling Coyote Moon wild symbols to appear simultaneously on a single reel, which makes up a “Stack” of Howling Coyote Moon wild symbols. The Howling Coyote Moon wild symbol is actually a Stacked Wild, and it can increase your chances of winning, by massively substituting for other symbols in order to help you complete numerous winning combinations!
The Scatter Symbol is the Ancient Singing Coyote Bonus symbol. Scatter symbols mean that they do not need to appear in a line (on an enabled pay line) for you to win. The Ancient Singing Coyote Bonus scatter symbol can be scattered anywhere on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels only. When 3 Ancient Singing Coyote Bonus scatter symbols come out anywhere on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels at the same time, the Rising Moon Free Spin Bonus Feature game is activated.
You are given scatter wins for symbols that appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels (in any position) for any number of played lines. If you manage to get 3 Ancient Singing Coyote Bonus scatter symbols anywhere, you are paid 2x your total bet.
Please take note that if you manage to obtain a scatter win and a regular win, you will be paid out accordingly for both of these wins, because the Ancient Singing Coyote Bonus scatter symbol is not required to come out on an active pay line for you to win. Scatter awards are independent from pay line awards, and so they are included to the pay line win.
