In a space as competitive as online gambling, you either need to push the envelope or get left behind. Keen on staying as far ahead of the field as possible, games developer Thunderkick has created a game that just might push them farther in front entitled Birds on a Wire.
Birds On A Wire is basically a five-reel slot with 17 paylines. And at the same time, it’s so much more. The standard reels are replaced by three rows of five cute animated birds sitting on electric lines against the backdrop of fields, trees, and a blue sky. When you spin the reels, you will move along to the next section of the electric line where 15 more birds will settle into place.
Before you start playing with these attention-seeking birds, make sure to adjust your bet. If you click on the "bet" button, available wagers will open across the screen, and all you need to do is pick and click on the bet you wish to place. The lowest wager is 0.10 and the highest one is 100. Once you set your bet you click "Spin" which will start turning the reels, and "autoplay" option will spin the reels without interruption for a preset number of times.
This is definitely a fun looking slot. All of the birds here look somewhat wide-eyed and not particularly intelligent. There is a mix of different birds, including hens, parrots, roosters and one particular bird that resides inside a cardboard box. It’s not the strongest slot when it comes to graphics and animations, but the personality of the slot makes up for this, even the “frying” of the birds being somewhat funny, as you’ll witness the outline of their skeleton framed against a black background, much as you would if watching a cartoon. The accompanying sound is easy on the ears but the exclamations of the birds when the volts hit them add a layer of humor to the proceedings.
Without a doubt, Birds on a Wire is an unforgettable game. The sight of the birds being electrocuted shouldn’t be funny, but it is and it makes for a very amusing slot. Add in the excellent free spins feature and the dropping symbols and you’ve got a slot with a lot of originality as well.
There are seven different bird symbol and they are differentiated by their color, which is black, red, orange, blue, green, pink and brown. The wild is a big, pear-shaped blackbird and then there’s a cardboard box with a couple of eyes visible which is the scatter symbol.
This happens in the base game and the free spins and every time you make a winning combination. The birds involved will be zapped into oblivion by the electric current and more birds will land on the lines in their place. A new combo is now possible and each successive win will increase the multiplier up to a maximum of 5x.
The cardboard box turns out to contain a cat and if you can land three or more anywhere in view, he will reveal himself and scare the birds off to another set of lines where the ten free spins will begin. Here, the multipliers for any electrocuted birds are 4x, 8x, 12x and 20x so there are some decent wins available. After the 10 spins are up, you will get one final spin called the Inwinity Spin which carries on until you land a winning combo.
