There is electricity in the air with the 5 reel and 17 fixed paylines slot Birds On A Wire by Thunderkick. Take flight with our feathered friends and play for the chance to win 20,000 coins per payline with 5 wild symbols!
Cartoon style graphics and sound
You should note right off the bat that the slot has the look and feel of a children's cartoon. The blue sky becoming purple during bonus spins and rolling hills background is drawn in pastel colours that lighten your mood. There are no reels in the conventional sense but 5 rows of odd looking birds representing symbols that are perched on electrical wires. The developer earns high marks for their design and it is nice to see that that there are no poker symbols which I find to be out of place when the game has a particular theme. Each bird is drawn with its own unique colour, body type and dare we say personality, which makes it even harder to get bored. Just as entertaining is watching them land and flutter away which substitutes for a conventional spin and seeing them explode into a ball of feathers during winning paylines as they are electrocuted. All the while, the music and sound effects keep you entertained.
Dropping Symbols and high voltage multipliers
After each winning payline, the symbols involved are electrocuted off the wire in a messy explosion of feathers leaving empty spaces. The spaces are replaced with new or existing symbols which cascade down from above. This cascading feature does not cost you coins, and if a new payline is formed from the cascaded symbols then the feature continues until you fail to get a winning payline and return to the base game. During the feature, you also have a high voltage multiplier where your winnings are treated to a climbing multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x, and 5x after the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th consecutive cascade.
Bonus spin with even higher voltage multipliers
One symbol we have not yet mentioned is the crafty cat scatter symbol appearing in a paper box with its two yellow eyes peeping from behind the box. The appearance of three of these symbols triggers the 10 free spins feature with any symbols appearing during the feature adding an additional 2 free spins up to a maximum of 34When activated, the multiplier during the cascading feature is even greater with 4x, 8x, 12x or 20x on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th cascade.
Black bird wild
Did we mention that this slot also features a black bird wild symbol? This fury guy will replace any other symbol other than the scatter symbol and land 5 of him on a payline and you strike electricity with 20,000 coins!
The verdict is in and it is shocking!
Birds On A Wire is a low variance game and bets come in a multitude of predetermined amounts from €0.10 to €100. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.0% as stated by the developer. This game represents a great trade off between features and prizes! While you are not likely to score a big haul, you can potentially win a good amount of coins while thoroughly being entertained in the process. We suggest you give this slot a serious look.
