Crazy Birds is powered by Novomatic and has 5 reels and 40 paylines – playable from 20p to £40 a spin on all devices, you enter the world of Potty, Rocky, Loopy and Candy in this nutty bird themed offering. It comes with a variety of bonus features where you can benefit from extra wilds, symbol smashes for guaranteed wins, spins of a prize wheel to win even cash prizes, free spins or access to the Pool Party feature.
Visually, Crazy birds is rather colourful and breezy – set in an island of love birds and with an Aztec feel, Potty, Rocky and Loopy compete for Candy’s affections. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as bird eggs, masks, relics and gold coins.
The latter 2 are the most lucrative giving you 12.5 times your stake for 5 on a payline. The gold coin symbol appears stacked by the way. Candy is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols in the game except the 2 scatters (the Pool Party and Free Spins symbols).
When it comes to bonus features, 3 of them are based on the slot’s characters. You have the Potty feature which sees Potty appear randomly on a base game spin and add more Candy wild symbols to the reels. If you don’t get a winning spin, Rocky can randomly appear in the Rocky feature to smash non-winning symbols – new symbols will replace them to give you a guaranteed win. These symbols will also be smashed until no more wins are possible.
Finally, you have the Loopy feature which is triggered, randomly, when the Loopy symbol appears after a non-winning spin in the base game. You will then see a prize wheel which you spin to win cash prizes, a guaranteed win spin or access to 2 more bonus features (the Pool Party feature and Free Spins feature).
The Pool Party feature can accessed also if you see the Pool Party scatter symbols appearing simultaneously on reels 1 and 2. You then choose from Potty, Rocky or Loopy to fall from pool to pool collecting prizes as they fall. If you have luck on your side, another bird may fall down the 3 pools to give you more cash prizes.
The Free Spins feature can also be triggered if you get the Free Spin scatter symbol on both reels 4 and 5 – you will be rewarded with 5 free spins. If a Free Spins 2×2 square lands on reels 4 and 5, you will retrigger the feature to give you another 5 free spins – there are no limits to how many free spins you can win. Now, if 1 or more Candy wilds land during a free spin, Candy will add more wilds to enhance your winning potential.
Crazy Birds is a colourful and fun slot from Novomatic – normally they offer more serious games so it’s a welcome change. Variance wise it’s in the middle with maximum wins of 500 times your stake on each spin. If you like birds, Thunderkick’s Birds On A Wire is recommended – if you like Novomatic titles, the volatile Kingdom of Legend can’t be beaten.
