Happy Birds Slot Review
Everybody likes birds, but, in our humble opinion, you will really love them once you start playing Happy Birds, iSoftBet’s five-reel video slot, which is playable from £0.25 per spin and offers 243 ways to win. A group of cute-looking fluffy birdies are here to keep you entertained by flying through Magic Hoops, shooting down Balloons for instant wins, awarding you with plenty of free spins with added Wilds, Wild reels and 2×2 Wilds. Look for the Scatter to trigger the Bonus game and shoot down your prizes, or land two Magic Hoops on reels 2 and 4 to make the birds fly through it and get your share of freebies!
We have to say in the very beginning that we are not experts when it comes to types of birds, but we did recognize a few of them on the reels. There is the blue Parrot, just like the one in Rio, a Toucan and a Canary, while the Wild is represented by a fantastic colourful Bird and, unfortunately, we do not know which bird is it, so we will call it the Wild Bird. Low-value symbols are represented by playing cards. A group of Birds is the Scatter that triggers the Bonus round, while the Magic Hoop triggers the Free Spins feature.
Well, here you don’t need to be a bird expert to fully understand how the 2014 release functions. The iSoftBet title features five reels, three rows and offers 243 ways to win. To win a payout, spinners need to land at least three matching symbols in succession, from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Every spin costs twenty five coins minimum. Remember that you can set the Bet Level (1-5) and the coin denomination (£0.01-£1) before you start spinning the reels. Bet as low as £0.25 and as high as £125 per spin.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when two Magic Hoops are landed on reels 2 and 4. Then the birds will fly through the Hoops and award you with a random number of free spins. Here gamers can expect plenty of extra Wilds. The Wild Bird will fly in and turn one or more random symbols into Wilds, or you can get a Wild reel if that will create a winning combination (only reel 1 cannot turn Wild), or four adjacent symbols may turn Wild, creating a 2×2 block Wild. The Free Spins feature can be retriggered infinitely simply by landing more Magic Hoops.
The Bonus feature starts when three Bonus Scatters appear on the reels. Gamers will then pick one of the birds to help them shoot down Balloons and get coin wins and multipliers. Shoot as many Balloons as you can to boost your instant wins.
The Bonus round offers the biggest possible prize in the iSoftBet title. Shoot down Balloons to win up to 125,000 coins, or £125,000 if you set the coin value to the max. The Parrot will pay the most, 16 times the bet for five of a kind, while other symbols are far less generous. Happy Birds’ RTP is 95.64%.
Happy Birds on Mobile
We had the pleasure of testing both the desktop and the mobile version of the iSoftBet product and we can say that the game runs as smoothly as possible on any device. The 2014 release loses none of its quality when played on handheld gadgets, so punters will have the same gaming experience on any device.
– Bonus round with coin wins and multipliers
– Loads of free spins can be triggered
– Lovely visuals
– Generic playing cards
– Not easy to land both Magic Hoops
– Could use a better soundtrack
We had so much fun playing Happy Birds! The good people of iSofbet did an amazing job with the 2014 release and we loved every segment of the game, except the soundtrack, which could have been better. The birds are lovely and very friendly and helpful, especially in the Bonus round, when you get to shoot down Balloons and win coin prizes. The Free Spins feature is also fun and rewarding, thanks to added Wilds, Wild reels and 2×2 Wilds, which will help you land massive wins. Believe us when we tell you, once you start playing the game, it will be very hard to stop!
