Birds On A Wire is a typically well designed and highly inventive video slot from Thunderkick. Played using a 5 reel, 17 payline game engine, it comes with symbol drop wins with multipliers and a bonus round where you can win up to 34 free spins with multipliers of up to 20x. Stakes range from between 10p and £100 per spin.
Thunderkick is up there with the best when it comes to the design of its games and Birds On A Wire is another cracker. The reels are made up of 3 telegraph pole wires. On each spin, 7 different birds fly in and take a perch. If a winning combination is created, the winning birds are electrocuted and removed from the reels and new birds fly in to replace them. This process continues as long as a new winner is landed. Each successive win also increases a multiplier which starts at 1x before rising to 2x, 3x or even 5x.
Land 3 or more of the Bonus symbol (which look likes a bird in a paper bag) and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature – you’ll then receive 10 free spins. The symbol drop wins are in play here too – this time though, the multipliers on offer are much larger.
They start at 4x and then rise to 8x, 12x and 20x with each consecutive win. Hope to see the Bonus symbol fly onto the screen too. Every time it does it will add another 2 free spins to your total giving you up to 34 free spins potentially. This video slot also comes with Thunderkick’s Inwinity Spin feature – if your final free spin doesn’t result in a winner, the free spins keep on coming until you do land one.
Thunderkick has really excelled itself here – the visuals are superb and the bossa nova style soundtrack excellent. The theme here may be extremely silly but there’s some serious gameplay on offer here. This is a volatile video slot so the birds can seemingly fly off with your bankroll. The multipliers in the free spins round can have a big impact if you get on a roll though – to the tune of 9,000 times your bet on each 20x multiplier free spin!
This probably isn’t a video slot for the bird watching fraternity. If you fancy a well-designed, unusually themed and highly volatile games then you’d be well advised to join the Birds On A Wire. Thunderkick offers plenty of these though with 1429 Uncharted Seas recommended.
