This game is set in the forest with all of the birds having their own little slot in a wooden frame. This is accented by clumps of leaves and a fringe of grass plus a strip of sparkling lights – rather bizarrely! The symbols on the reels are rendered in 3D graphics and you’ll be admiring tropical green parrots, the large yellow beak of a toucan as well as the wise stare of an owl. Flapping good fun!
Flap into a Spin
There are 5 reels in this game which are set out in the usual 5×3 configuration and there’s 20 paylines. These paylines aren’t fixed so you can reduce them if you prefer to play on fewer using the on screen controls. You can also decide how much to bet with per payline starting from just 0.01 per line and increasing up to 10.00. When playing on the full 20 paylines this correlates to a total min bet of 0.20 and a total max bet of 200.00.
The paytable shows you exactly what you could win and what you’ll need to spin to get a payout. Some of the symbols only require a match of two for a prize while others won’t pay until you match three or more. The more symbols you have on consecutive reels along an active payline, the bigger the prize will be. The top payout is the toucan giving a win of 750 for matching up five.
Feathered Frenzy doesn’t create too much fuss around the bonuses as there’s very few available compared to other titles on the market. There’s a wild which offers a win of up to 10,000 – the highest payout on the board – if you match five or more. But if you land a wild on the reels you will also win double your money for any win where it’s used. The scatter on the reels pays out from two symbols upwards no matter where they are on the board. If you land three or more you’ll also win 15 free spins; any wins during this phase will also be tripled. With the feature being retriggered it’s possible to win up to 180 free spins.
There are other features on the slot which make it more comfortable to play, such as the Autospin facility. Here you’ll have the chance to rest and take it easy while still playing for cash prizes. Look out for the “Autoplay” button which is on the right below the reels. Click on this and you’ll have the chance to to sit back while the reels spin each time without you lifting a finger. When you’re ready to start playing again it’s just a single click to regain control.
If you’ve enjoyed playing with the bird-themed slot, there’s plenty more which have a similar style. Parrot Party from Wager Gaming Technology has a tropical vibe with 25 paylines, five slots and a bonus feature too. Birds from Betsoft is another avian play, and here you’ll find some fantastic graphics which will make the feathers seem as if they’re flying out of the screen. Wobbling precariously on telephone wires there’s birds of every colour coupled with an innovative win pattern which allows you to match up both vertically and horizontally.
Having a Flutter
Feathered Frenzy from Big Time Gaming has a fun appeal with cure characters which really stand out. There are not many features on this slot, which we found slightly disappointing, but it means that with a medium volatility it’s a fairly good fit for those who are less experienced at slots. This one’s going to keep you entertained for a while, without getting into too much of a flap.
