Can a flock of birds help you fly away with a jackpot? That’s the goal in Feathered Frenzy, an avian themed slot powered by Big Time Gaming. Helping you on your way are wilds which double any payout in which they feature as well as a free spins feature where all payouts are trebled. Take to the sky from between 20p and £200 per spin.

Joining the lower value playing cards on the reels are a quintet of brightly coloured cartoon birds. The top paying duo are the green parrot and the black and white toucan. Land 5 in combination and the cashier will be boosted to the tune of 750 times your line bet.

Feathered Frenzy also comes with a wild, the yellow bird. It can improve your winning opportunities in a number of ways. As usual, it substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. When it forms part of a winning combination, that payout will be boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled. The wild offers some pretty nifty prizes in its own right too. If you’re lucky enough to land 5 of them on 1 of the game’s 20 paylines, you can expect a bumper payout of 10,000 times your line bet!

The chief attraction in Feathered Frenzy is the Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing 3 or more of the scatter (the egg) anywhere on the reels. As well as trousering a payout of 5, 20 or 100 times your total bet, you’ll also be awarded 15 free spins.

All winning combination formed during the feature are trebled (apart from if you land the aforementioned 5 wilds). There’s plenty of scope to add more if the egg scatters hatch again as a total of 180 free spins are theoretically possible.

We’d rate Feathered Frenzy a medium variance slot – you won’t be waiting ages for a winner or to trigger the free spins. There are still decent winning opportunities available though, especially if you manage to re-trigger the free spins on a number of occasions.

Feathered Frenzy is pretty typical for a Big Time Gaming slot. The game engine is identical to Vegas Dreams and Gold so if you’ve played either of those you’ll have a good idea of what to expect here. This bird bonanza is pretty simple fare, both in terms of design and gameplay. The added multipliers make it playable though, for twitchers and non-twitchers alike. If you want something different, Queen of Riches by Big Time Gaming is highly recommended.
