Birds on a Wire Review
It's well-known that birds love to sit on perches and just watch the world from up above. Unfortunately for these birds, the high voltage generator has malfunctioned and the telephone wire is a hot zone for electric shocks. Fortunately for players, this means that you can win even more and gain increasing multipliers!
Developed by Thunderkick, Birds on a Wire plays on 5-reels with 15 paylines and gives players the chance to win up to 9,000x their stake. This wacky slot is a mixture of WTF and animal themed to create something utterly unique, we guarantee you'll not play anything like this one.
The background of the slot features a cartoony and minimalist background that looks straight out of a Dr Suess book. It's extremely colourful and vibrant to create something that stands out.
Thankfully, the birds themselves are all distinct and stand out in the background. There are a variety of birds that act as symbols to match on the paylines. Once you land a winning payline, the birds on that line will be shocked and fried.
When birds are zapped, they make subtle screaming noises and each bird has a unique noise exclusive to them. Ultimately, it's both hilarious and terrifying to watch - it's definitely a slot for hidden sadists.
Other sounds include the jazz music in the background that can only be described as elevator music along with ambient sounds such as birds flapping and the noises from the cats in disguise.
Similar to Not Enough Kittens, this slot may seem complicated but it's incredibly straightforward. You set your bet and spin in hopes of winning big or triggering the free spins round.
Just like most other Thunderkick slots, this one features up to 5,000 autospins which can be found to the bottom right of the reels. Alongside it is the spin button and the bet level. Other menus can be found to the left if you want to adjust sounds or check on the paytable.
As the RTP is 96.10%, Birds on a Wire has a solid RTP that is respectable in regards to online slots. It's also a high volatility slot which means payouts are less frequent but higher when they do - so make sure you have the bankroll to sustain your payout.
Players can win big by filling the reels with wilds and the multiplier of up to x20 during free spins which can lead to the maximum payout of 9,000x your stake. For some high rollers, this could be seen as quite low but the slot makes up for it with its unique charm.
We don't condone animal cruelty, but Birds on a Wire is pretty hilarious and fun to play. It's completely unexpected and will hopefully gain a cult following in the future with the utterly bonkers gameplay and premise. Thankfully, the win potential is decent enough with a solid RTP and an average payout for a high volatility slot.
Of course, high rollers will perhaps prefer slots like Dead or Alive 2 or Razor Shark which have much bigger payouts. If you want something unexpected and creative with a decent win potential, check out Birds on a Wire.
