Birds! is a video slot produced by the British software developer BetSoft, well-known for its 3D slot machines which provide you with an exquisite gaming experience. The game is obviously inspired by birds which cover the reels entirely and it uses a cascading reel structure which allows multiple respins.
The game comes packed with various bonus features which are highly entertaining and awarding and pays when you land identical symbols on adjacent positions as long as you create lines horizontally or vertically. It does not pay diagonally.
What We Love
The way the slot is created knocked us from our feet as soon as we launched it as it looks more like a cartoon than a casino game. All its symbols, a layout, special features and the background are carefully designed to serve to the theme well, while sound effects and an entertaining soundtrack contribute to the overall atmosphere the game creates.
Besides, the structure of the reels and all special features also add excitement to the gameplay. Birds fly onto the wires and away which is especially cool when the win is hit as winning birds fly away while those which stay on the reels fall at their positions.
When your Tweet-O-Meter shows that you have collected at least four Free Flights, the free spins feature can be triggered. We love the possibility of winning 20 and more free spins as well as the fact that the free spins feature can be retriggered.
What We Do Not Like
The payouts are quite low and you will rarely create a winning line consisting of more than three symbols. The paying structure of the game may be innovative, but you can not create multiple wins with same symbols as the slot does not offer classic paylines, so you have to be satisfied with what you get. High value symbols appear rarely and we have hit so far just a few wins consisting of high value symbols which is quite depressing.
The maximum payout is delivered by three or more Wilds depicted as a multicolored bird, but we have never seen more than one Wild on the screen.
The only value displayed in a currency you play at is the balance, whereas your bet is expressed in coins which we find not very useful as you need to calculate the real value of the bet each time you change the bet level or the coin denomination.
If you want to enjoy a relaxing slot machine which boasts exquisite visuals, the Birds! slot machine is a perfect fit for you. Once you start spinning the reels you will be totally engaged by the game, so set up the bet value according to your preferences and enjoy the smooth gameplay as long as you can.
You can find another video slot with similar theme produced by Thunderkick, but frankly speaking, they cannot be compared as the game from BetSoft boasts 3D graphics and animations unparalleled on the market.
