|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
Do you remember the 1963 horror movie Birds based on the 1952 book by Alfred Hitchcock? The story follows a sequences of sudden and mysterious violet bird assaults on people at Bodega Bay California. The book is worldwide read and the movie is still watched to date. Why? Because it is unusual that such cute creatures like bird’s attack and also because it is Hitchcock after all.
Fast forward to 2016 where developers Betsoft have looked outside of the window and just admired nature in front of their eyes, most probably they had just seen Hitchcock’s movie however put a twist to it. This time around, our main protagonists are cute looking colourful creatures that mean no harm, just squishy cute creatures that award you some cool winnings. So let’s chip away into oblivion with Birds, the latest slot machine from Betsoft. You will not be attacked or disappointed we promise!
Birds is a 5-reel slot machine that enjoys three rows with no pay lines. In case you were asking how will you manage to land wins with no pay lines, it is very simple indeed, as winning combinations are formed by either vertical or horizontal grouped birdies when you manage to match the bird types.
What we love about the video slot is the fact that Betsoft took some time to work up some cool 3D animations that work particular well with the slot machine. The birds are all colourful and smiley, with a bottom line that shouts cute! All the friendly birdies are sat on wires that are stretched over between 2 street lamps with a sunny background of a small unknown town with a small hill topped church lurking in the background. The soundtrack that accompanies your gameplay is a calm one with birds chirping and singing, giving you a sense of calm.
The various coloured birds are the symbols that make up your slot machine as follows:
White birds, pink bird, violet bird, a pirate red bird, an orange bird, a blue bird with headphones, a yellow bird, a grey bird, a green glasses wearing bird and a lilac smiling bird. Look out for the multi coloured bird that acts as a wild all throughout your gameplay.
What we love about Betsoft is the fact that their slot machines are catered for all players with varied betting options with a starting small bet of 0.25 that goes up to a maximum bet of 150.00 per spin. The other good news here is that the online slot can be enjoyed being played on mobile, tablet and desktop.
