Happy Birds is an iSoftBet slot game with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Inspired by Facebook’s Angry Birds social game, you have the Bonus feature where you take down floating balloons with your catapult to reveal coin and multiplier prizes. Then you have the Free Spins feature where the number of free spins in random – the birds fly onto the reels to turn symbols randomly into wilds.
Angry avians have dominated the social media world and now their more even tempered cousins take centre stage in Happy Birds. Powered by iSoftBet, this 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot features great design alongside 2 feature rounds. Playable across all devices, flutter your wings from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.
Set against a Toy town cityscape backdrop, the reels feature a selection of furry creatures as well as lower value playing cards. Look out for a bright yellow canary, a big-beaked toucan and a blue and yellow parrot. The parrot is the best of the standard symbols, rewarding you with 16 times your total stake if you can land 5 in a row.
The fluttering hummingbird is the game's wild, replacing everything with the exception of the Bonus and Magic Hoop symbols. The Birds logo is the scatter - land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to activate the Bonus feature. You'll be taken to a new screen and presented with a selection of floating balloons - take aim with the catapult and pop the balloons to reveal coin and multiplier prizes.
The feature on offer in Happy Birds is a Free Spins feature - this is triggered when the Magic Hoops land on reels 2 and 4. The precise number of spins you will receive is decided at random. Watch out too for the birds who fly onto the reels during the feature to turn random symbols wild.
Happy Birds is a very well-produced slot - the visuals are uniformly excellent. Everything is bold, bright and perfectly crisp. Likewise, the jaunty jingles and rattling backing track. iSoftBet have obviously put plenty of effort into the look and sound of Happy Birds and it shows.
The features stack up nicely too - they're not the easiest to trigger but both the bonus round and the free spins feature offer decent potential. That's especially the case as far as the latter is concerned where the added wilds can really make a difference.
If you've enjoyed playing Angry Birds on Facebook, then the chances are that you'll enjoy the Happy Birds on show here too. If you like your social games, Blueprint Gaming’s Plants vs Zombies Wild Gargantuar slot is highly recommended.
