The New Birds Pokie Takes You Fying to Big Wins!
It seems that Birds are becoming a very popular theme around the online gambling industry. After the big success Birds on a Wire from Thunderkick software had, it seems that Betsoft Gaming is ready to fly into this theme as well.
Their latest release Birds, follows the almost identical design and game play as the Thunderkick version, but with a few great modifications. We all know that the 3D video pokies from Betsoft have some amazing graphic details, but they have been taken on a much higher level in this pokie.
The almost standard dark tones and dark colors are replaced with a bright, variant palette of colors, giving the pokie a cheerful and fun appearance. Even though the bird symbols have a certain cartoon look, it is taken on a much higher level and can be compared with any top animated blockbuster movie in theaters today.
The game play is very simple, with a $0.50 minimum bet and win combinations formed between 3 or more identical symbols, which have to be horizontally or vertically one next to another.
This way the standard pay line system is out of the game making way for the rolling reels design. We are all familiar with this design as winning symbols fly away from the wire and new bird symbols fly in to take their place, giving the opportunity for more wins to occur.
The same design is kept in the bonus feature, which is triggered by at least 4 consecutive winning spins on the reels. Players have a chance to win between 8 and 20 free spins which are played on the same concept as base play.
What’s great about this game is the fact that the free spins can go on for an indefinite number, thanks to the rolling reels design and the chance to get many re-triggers. This is why Birds is sure to attract a great deal of attention by the online gambling community.
What We love
Even though we are not great fans of Betsoft pokies, we simply can’t stay indifferent to the visual appearance Birds has.
Every detail is brought to perfection and this game is the perfect reminder why Betsoft is the number one software provider in the industry, when it comes to creating great 3D video pokie games.
We also love the fact that beside visually, Birds is also very attractive in terms of payout. The rolling reels design and the opportunity to win an incredibly big number of free spins is too much to pass by.
What we Do not Like
Even though almost everything is perfect in this game, the pay table could use some extra work. The symbols have a very small payout attached, so base play can be brutal over long sessions.
The payouts in Birds are generally small and don’t seem worth chasing. Still Birds has the potential to pay big.
The entire free spins bonus design, just like base play, offers the chance for many winning spins to happen at the price of one. In a good day you can easily win a big number of free spins, which compensates for the low symbols payout. With a little luck on your side, Birds can award you with wins of over 500 x bet, which is reason enough to give it a try.
