Paper hats and candles at the ready, it’s party time in Happy Birthday, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Eyecon. Goodies on offer in this celebration include double payouts for winning lines that contain a wild plus a free spins round where all payouts are trebled. Play from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.

Surrounded by a cavalcade of brightly coloured balloons, the reels in Happy Birthday are filled with objects associated with a party. You’ll see blowouts, gifts, party hats and musical notes which award up to 100 coins as well as bunches of flowers and cup cakes which award up to 125 coins. Next come the heart-shaped balloons and the champagne glasses and bottles of bubbly which award up to 250 and 450 coins.

The cuddly hippo and panda are the top standard symbols, paying up to 950 coins. Those standard symbols are joined by the streamers symbol which is the wild – as well as replacing all other symbols apart from the scatter, it awards payouts of 10, 200, 2,000 or 9,500 coins if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Winning combinations that include a wild see the payout doubled!

Happy Birthday comes with a Free Games feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the birthday cake. As well as a payout equal to 5, 20 or 450 times your total stake, you’ll also get 15 free spins with all payouts trebled. You can re-trigger more rounds of 15 free spins if you manage to land 3 or more birthday cakes on the same free spin with up to 240 in total available.

Happy Birthday offers what we’ve come to expect from Eyecon slots – they’re not the most visually arresting games but the features make them playable. That’s certainly the case here. We’ve enjoyed the pick features in some other Eyecon-powered slots so it’s a shame they’re not on offer here. The free spins round is decent enough though thanks to the trebling multiplier.

This isn’t the wildest celebration you’ll come across – it’s perfectly enjoyable fare though. If you’re marking a special day then Happy Birthday is a decent enough way to celebrate as it offers payouts of up to 1,140 times your total bet on each free spin! If you like the birthday concept, you can try Playson’s Zombirthday which is superb.
