Birds on a Wire
Birds on a Wire is a 5 reels and 17 paylines video slot from Thunderkick with a more creative and unique design. The slot doesn’t come with the standard reels but it acts the same way where you need to land three or more symbols in a row to win. What makes this slot so special and different is that as soon as you land three of the same birds (symbols) they will be fried and disappear which leaves space from new symbols to fill. This makes it easier to win bigger wins with just one single spin. Each time you gain an additional win during a spins you’ll receive a higher multiplier. Your first win will be standard but from thereon your wins will be met with 2x, 3x or 5x multipliers in that single turn.
Birds on a wire come with 17 unusual win line that are active during every spin. Unfortunately you do not have the option to deactivate any of the win lines. The biggest paying symbol is the Hen which will reward you with 12x your stake if there are 5 in a row. The pink owl and the parrot can land you 8x and 6x your total bet. The rest of the coloured birds act as standard symbols.
The wild in this slot is the black rooster and it will substitute any other symbol on the reels to provide you with bigger wins. This slot is playable on your desktop, tablet or smartphone and runs smoothly on all devices.
Look & Feel
This slot is definitely one of the top releases when it comes to innovation and creativity, it also has incredible graphics and quirky animations. The birds featured in this slot looks wide eyed and not really intelligent. The slot has a mixture of different birds on the line which includes hens, parrots, roosters and one sly “bird” living in a cardboard box. There is a certain type of humour added to the slot especially with the animation of the birds being “fried” or well to be honest electrocuted. During the electrocution you will see their skeleton against a black background exactly as it would be featured in a cartoon.
The standard boring reels are replaced with three rows of five quirky, animated birds on electric lines and it plays off against the backdrop of an open field with trees and a blue sky. As you spin the reels the birds already in place will fly away and get replaced by new ones. There are seven different birds that will feature on the reels which include black, red, orange, blue, green, pink and brown birds. The wild symbol is the huge pear-shaped black bird and the scatter symbol is the figure in the cardboard box of which you can only see the eyes.
Sound & Score
The sound of the game is easy to listen to and quite boring but luckily it is spiced up by the exclamations of the birds when they are being electrocuted.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The wild of this slot is the big black bird that replaces all symbols except the scatter symbol.
Each time you win the winning birds will be electrocuted until they explode and the remaining symbols will drop down on the reels. The open space will then be filled by more symbols without costing you a penny more. This allows you to win more and for each consecutive win you will get an increased multiplier that can go from 1x to 5x.
Scatter and Free Spins:
The scatter symbol is the cats posing as birds beneath the paper bags. If you get three of them anywhere on the reels they will drop their acts and surprise the birds with a quick attack which will reward you with free spins.
The birds will fly to another set of wires where the multipliers have been increased to start with 4x and can go all the way to 20x your bet.
