Birds! slot is the latest product released from Betsoft Gaming creative kitchen which offers you a unique gaming experience with reels that actually fly! The colourful graphics and 3D animation makes this five-reel slot more an animated movie than a video slot.
As the title says itself, the main protagonists are cute-looking birds that come in different sizes and colours and actually fly on and off the cables and wires stretched between two poles every time you hit the spin button. Due to the cascading reels and respins, the 2016 release offers plenty of lucrative winning possibilities and some enjoyable playtime.
What We Love
The very first thing we need to acknowledge is that Betsoft did an amazing job in the graphics department. Due to some impeccable 3D animations, those fluffy creatures literally come to life, turning this video slot into an animated movie. In combination with some very good soundtrack, Betsoft created an amazing visual experience for all gamers.
The fact that there are no standard paylines makes it easier for players to land winning combinations, since all you need to do is land at least three matching birds both horizontally or vertically anywhere on the reels to start winning money. This is where respins are triggered, because after every winning you are rewarded with a respin.
Birds that formed a winning combination will fly away, birds that were above them will fall down on their place thanks to the cascading reels, while a new combination of birds will fly in and hopefully form a new winning combination.
Four consecutive respins trigger the Free Flights feature and reward gamers with 8 respins. Five respins are worth 12 free spins, while you can win 20 freebies after six consecutive respins and all of that is achievable with a single starting spin. Taking under consideration that this feature can be retriggered at any time, it is possible to win countless free spins for the price of one spin, which is simply amazing.
What We do not Like
After playing the slot for a while, especially when you go on a longer run without landing a winning combination, it becomes obvious that birds are a bit slow when flying on and off the reels, so it can get a bit boring at times. Luckily, these kinds of situations do not happen often.
There is also one more thing that could frustrate you, and that is the Tweet ‘o’ Meter, that counts the number of the achieved respins. Triggering Free Flights feature is far from an easy task, and the meter that is almost full at one time could easily appear empty in the very next spin, leaving you discontented
Bird lovers from all around the world will most definitely enjoy the 2016 release, especially due to the tremendous job concerning the graphics and 3D animations.
There are not many slots out there that can offer reels that actually fly, so we do expect Birds! to become a big hit. Betsoft product is not just a pretty face, since it offers several interesting additional features that may reward gamers with some hefty payouts, and the forming of winning combinations is much easier when there are no standard paylines. Birds! slot is rather simple to play, offers lots of fun and winning opportunities, which is everything gamers look for in video slots.
