Forget Angry Birds hell bent on destruction and revenge (not that that isn’t fun and all), and make way for cash collecting Happy Birds. These little guys are just plain adorable and are guaranteed to make you smile while spinning for cash. Happy Birds, a non-progressive online video slot released in 2015 by iSoftBet, boasts a staggering 243 ways to win (as seen in other online slots such as NetEnt’s Starburst and Elk Studio’s Taco Brothers). iSoftBet released an RTP 95,64% for this online slot. You have the possibility of winning up to 48,600 coins in regular gameplay, and the potential to win up to 138,750 coins in the bonus game. This should be more than enough to tempt players and keep them interested. Not to mention, the unique bonus game allows slot players direct control of whether they win or lose which is brilliant. If you find that as intriguing as I did, then read on for the juicy details!
Prepare to smile and get happy
These Happy Birds live their happy lives in a sunshiny, little town in this 3-row, 5-reel online slot game. The faint tweeting of birds can be heard along with typical white noise of the city such as the rumble of a vehicle passing by every so often. Spin to get at least 3 matching symbols starting from reel 1 for a win. This slot only offers left to right gameplay, but don’t let that put you off. With 243-paylines, there are 243 possible winning combos. Staggering, right? This translates to winning relatively often. Happy Birds still has big winning potential.
There are 20 bet options that range from a minimum cash bet of 0.25p to a maximum cash bet of £125 at LeoVegas. There is an interesting feature here which allows for all the matching symbols in the reel to be multiplied together, allowing adjacent matching symbols to be combined in the overall win. For instance, if you get 3 matching symbols on reels 1-3, any adjacent symbols on those reels count toward the win. Click the “i” button in game to view a couple of illustrations.
Special symbols from the Happy Birds slot include a Wild symbol (a parrot with rainbow wings), Bonus (trio of birds: parrot, toucan, yellow canary), and Magic Hoop. Wilds can stand in for any other symbol except the other special symbols. Bonus symbols trigger the bonus game (read below for more details). Magic Hoops trigger free spins. Regular symbols include the Parrot, Toucan, Yellow Canary, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, and 9. The Parrot is worth the most boasting the highest value with the 9 as the lowest value.
The value of symbols from Happy Birds varies from minimum to maximum slot bets. For example, with a max bet of £125 the 9 symbol has a value of (75, 50, 15), whereas with a min bet of 0.25p, that same symbol has a value of (0.15, 0.10, 0.03). Below are the values for the maximum bet of £125. See values for all bets before making your choice by pressing the “i” button within the Happy Birds slot above the betting options.
There is a full screen option which is great when playing the game on mobile devices. Players can “Quick-stop” for greater control of where the symbols fall. Auto play is very simply designed. Press the white Auto-spin button for continuous spins that don’t stop until either the event bonus feature is triggered, or the player manually presses “stop.”
Happy Birds bonus features
Free Spins: A random amount of free spins is awarded when a spin yields a Magic Hoop on the 2nd and 4th reels. A happy bird will fly through a hoop and a number will follow so you know exactly how many you get.
Bonus Game: The bonus game is triggered by the appearance of 3+ bonus symbols. Choose either the Parrot, the Toucan, or the Canary for the game. Aim that happy bird at the floating hot air balloons with red targets dangling beneath and hope you hit the bullseye for a Multiplier or cash prize. Keep playing until you miss for a big cash win of up to 138,750 coins!
