Birdz Slot

Have you ever been subjected to nuisance birds on telegraph poles? In the Birdz Slot NYX delivers just that - three rows of birds on three power lines. Far from being a nuisance, though, these avians have reel appeal in this five reel, 30 payline slot.

About Birdz

Instead of reels. The Birdz Slot adds an clever design twist by changing them to telegraph wires instead. On either side of the reels we see the telegraph poles and in the middle, the familiar sight of birds sitting along and squawking away. A spin of the reels sees the birds fly away, with a new set of birds flying in and landing on the reels to create new combinations. Each combination of vivid birds brightens the screen – including Orange, Green, Black, Blue, Yellow, Purple, Brown and Red – and brighten our spirits when they land in winning combos and help us climb the Bonus Trail.

Bonus Features

Instead of a bird being the slot’s Wild, OpenBet flips the bird and egg question by making the Egg symbol Wild – another clever twist. When we land a winning combination during the base game, the birds pop away to allow new birds to land on the wires. Here we have the possibility of again creating new winning combinations with each successive win, but with each successful combo we climb a place on the Birdz Bonus Trail. It sits to the left of the reels and kicks in when we no longer score a winning combo.

The Bonus Trail features include:

Shotgun: One shotgun blast later and one of the birds becomes all feathers, with a new bird replacing it and potentially creating a new winning combo.

Shotgun x2: As above, but times two.

Zap: A wire is electrified, zapping the birds on a wire to be replaced by new ones.

Scarecrow: All birds are scared away and replaced.

Pecking order: At least three of the lower value symbols are replaced with higher ones.

Cracking Wilds: All the symbols on reels one, two or three are turned Wild.

The randomly-triggered Bird Blitz feature sees a storm coming, causing all birds to fly away and back again until we find a winning combo.

The Slot Professor’s Summary

There’s certainly something Pixar about this slot, but maybe that’s why it has such appeal. Cute graphics, fun feathery characters and well-devised game-play make this slot one that any slots fan can enjoy. While the lack of dedicated bonus features may scare off browsing players like the Scarecrow on the Bonus Trail, in fact the successive wins we can score – and the Bonus Trail activations along with them – more than make up for the lack of a set bonus game.

As we might expect, the higher up the Bonus Trail we climb, the more likely we are of recurring wins. The more concurrent wins we score, back up the bonus trail we go. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy, a non-vicious circle that is our key to landing big Birdz wins.

The Birdz slot sticks out as an enjoyable title due to its excellent visuals and animations – least not for the attention to detail in the background graphics that add as much as the game-play itself. The overall concept is superbly activated, even if the soundtrack is a little off kilter. Of course, we can toggle the sound on and off, but the chances are we will be creating our own sounds of excitement should we find ourselves at the top of the Birdz Bonus Trail.
