“Watch the birdie” is a phrase uttered by photographers when they’re trying to get babies to look at the camera while a photo is being taken. Yet, that’s not what this Rival Gaming slot is all about. Instead, it’s about a birdwatcher trying to catch a glimpse of various actual birds. So, if you want to join him then grab your binoculars and hit the spin button.
This game features a layout of five reels and three rows in total, while a selection of 15 pay lines are also on offer for you to bet on. You can change the active number of lines, while up to five coins between 1p and £1 can also be brought into play on those lines. This provides a maximum bet opportunity of £75 per spin.
The graphics within Watch the Birdie are some of Rival’s quirkiest, and the background of trees and bushes really sets the scene. All of the standard symbols are represented by a selection of different birds, some of which have been adorned with sunglasses or exceptional plumage. The highest paying standard symbol is that of the red bird of paradise, which is able to pay out up to 1,000x your wager.
The hatching baby bird is the symbol that represents this game’s wild addition. This means that it will substitute for all other standard symbols on the reels, helping you with the creation of winning combinations.
An additional perk of the chick is that it will expand vertically to cover all positions above it, which can also assist with forming extra wins from a single spin. Wild chicks can only appear on reels two, three and four throughout the game.
Make sure that you keep a close eye out for the appearance of the red bird box, because this is the slot’s jackpot symbol. Whenever it comes into view on the reels, it stands the possibility of providing you with a larger pay-out.
If you manage to spin five of the jackpot symbol into view, you’ll see your wager multiplied by 1,500x over.
Watch the Birdie has its very own birdwatcher who has positioned himself within the bushes and occasionally pops out as the game’s bonus scatter symbol, meaning that he can appear in any position and still potentially reward you with the Find the Birdie Bonus Round.
You’ll need to spin three, four or five of the scatters into view in order for this to happen. Just follow the on-screen instructions to make your way through this round and potentially five your win balance a big boost.
Watch the Birdie stands out for multiple reasons, not least for its impressive inbuilt graphics. It’s definitely one of those that deserves a second, third, and fourth look once you load it up. The symbols are crisp and clear, and everything plays out very nicely within it. When you also get around to triggering special features the game really finds its wings. Overall, it acts as another game that Rival should be proud of, and it will certainly provide entertainment to anyone who plays it.
