Birds on a Wire Slot Review
Yet another inventive game by Thunderkick, Birds on a Wire revolves around birds sitting on telephone wires. What stands out about this 5-reel, 17-payline game is that it doesn’t have traditional paylines, opting instead to use three rows of wires.
When you form a winning payout, the birds that helped you form the win are electrocuted, making way for birds from above to fall into their place (a.k.a. cascading reels). While this is a grisly way to treat the birds, it’s good for you because it means more payouts. Let’s continue discussing Birds on a Wire, including betting options, symbols and features.
Birds on a Wire Details
You have to play all 17 paylines in Birds on a Wire, but you can change your total bet from €0.10 to €100.00. You’ll also be able to autospin the reels from 5 to 5,000 spins with your selected betting options.
All of the symbols in this game deal with different birds, which makes it a little hard to keep track of what payouts to expect. The main symbol that you should watch for is the black bird, which is wild and substitutes for all other symbols except the bonus symbol.
We also wouldn’t say that the graphics are very inspiring, even for the quirky game that this attempts to be. Betsoft, which ripped off Thunderkick’s idea, created almost the same exact slot in Birds, with the main difference being richer graphics.
Birds on a Wire Slot Features
The bonus symbol is a box with eyes peering out of it. If you get three or more of these boxes anywhere on the reels, you earn 10 free spins. Any additional box that you get on the reels gives you another 2 spins, and you can earn a maximum of 34 spins. Once your free spins are over, you can look forward to an Inwinity symbol that keeps the reels spinning and more wins coming.
One other feature that you can expect is the voltage multiplier, which increases every time that a win is formed by dropping birds. In the main game, multiplier levels include 1x, 2x, 3x and 5x, while bonus multipliers include 4x, 8x, 12x and 20x.
Birds on a Wire Slot Payout (RPT%)
RTP for Birds on a Wire is 96.0%, which is average for a Thunderkick game. As for our final take on this slot, we like the concept of telephone wires being paylines coupled with the cascading reels effect. It’s also nice that you can get even bigger wins as dropping birds form more winning combinations in a row. The only downside that we see is the graphics, which are subpar no matter what angle Thunderkick is going for. On the other hand, the graphics aren’t so bad that
