Happy Birds is an online slot game developed by the software company iSoftbet. The game features several breeds of birds in its symbols, such as a Parrot, a Toucan and a yellow Chick. The birds all have similarities: they are bright, colourful and loud.
It can be said that the birds in this game seem to be based on the Popular mobile game, Angry Birds, especially the spin-off game, Angry Birds: Rio. Happy Birds has a modern cartoon style feel with the backdrop showing a white picket fence neighbourhood and the birds themselves having some animated features. The sound adds to this ambience, as you will hear the birds tweeting and the sound of traffic in between spins. During the spins a catchy, upbeat tune is played.
How to Play Happy Birds Slot
Happy Birds boasts five reels and three rows of symbols. There are 243 ways to win in Happy Birds, which means that if the symbols land on the third, fourth or fifth reels then you will receive some kind of reward. You will need to place a total bet from between 2.50 and 12.50 for each spin. Winning combinations are formed when similar symbols appear anywhere on the reels, starting from left to right. You need at least 3 symbols in order to win.
There is also a Wild symbol, scatter symbols, free spins and bonus rounds to further ensure greater winnings. There is also an autoplay feature that you can choose to use and you may play Happy Birds using real money or merely in the free demo mode.
Symbols Used in Happy Birds
Regular playing card symbols in Happy Birds of 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace appear on the reels in addition to the Yellow Chick, the Parrot and the Toucan. The Wild symbol is multi-coloured flying Parrot and has the ability to substitute all of the symbols on the reels when it is needed to make up a winning combination. The exception to this is the scatter and bonus symbols.
The scatter symbol is the Magic Hoop. When the scatter symbols appear on the second or fourth reel, it will trigger a randomly determined number of free spins. The Bonus Symbol is one of Three Birds. When three or more Bonus Symbols appear anywhere on the reels it will activate a bonus prize round.
Bonus Features in Happy Birds
In order to activate the bonus feature on Happy Birds the Multi-coloured Parrot – the bonus symbol – will need to land across the reels at least three times. Once this occurs you will be transported to another screen where you will find several hot air balloons, each with a target underneath. This bonus round requires the player to use some degree of skill as they will need to sling the birds at the targets to knock them down. The more targets you hit, the bigger your bonus reward will be.
The second bonus that Happy Birds slots offer is the free spins feature which comes from the scatter symbol. During this free spins round, there are additional Wild symbols on the reels which help increase your rewards.
