Feathered Frenzy Slot Review

Animal themed slots are nothing new, however it is rather unusual to see an online slot machine based on Ornithology – which sees people studying the behaviour of birds, classify them by species and more. Thankfully the Feathered Frenzy slot machine developed by Big Time Gaming isn’t as boring as that sounds!

Set deep in the heart of the forest, Feathered Frenzy has been very well designed with rather funky birds featuring which reminded me of the Angry Birds app. Along with this there are natural sounds with birds whistling in the background, upbeat tunes when you land winning combinations, plus it boasts a feature that can see you rewarded with 180 free spins!

The setup of Feathered Frenzy means you will have no bankroll management concerns as it contains 5 reels, 20 paylines, and very reasonable betting options. The stake per line can be adjusted from £0.01 up to £10 which allows for a minimum bet of £0.20 and maximum bet of £200 per spin when all paylines are selected.

On The Branches…

Feathered Frenzy has a fantastic range of symbols with thirteen in total, all of which have been beautifully designed. The main symbol is the Wild which is a Golden Bird (more on this below) and there is also an Egg Scatter symbol which is required for the free spins game.

Joining these on the reels are five feathered friends and while I am certainly not an Ornithologist I think they are a designed to represent a Puffin, Parrot, Owl, Blue Tit and a Robin. Completing the line-up is the standard Ace to 9 playing card symbols which have been designed as though they are embossed on a tree trunk.

Aside from the Wild it is the Puffin and Parrot which are equally the next highest valued symbols and five of each on a payline result in a 750 coin win, while in comparison the King to the 9 playing card symbols are the lowest valued and all only pay 100 coins for five of each on a payline.

Wonderful Wild Wins

As common in online slots, the big wins come when you land the Wild. As mentioned above, the Wild in Feathered Frenzy is a Golden Bird which can substitute for all other symbols aside from the Egg Scatter symbol.

Any winning combinations that feature a Wild symbol are doubled in value, while five Wilds on a payline will see you win a jackpot prize of 10,000 coins – wonderful indeed!

Up To 180 Free Spins

Yes, I thought that would capture your attention. Feathered Frenzy offers a very generous free spins feature which begins when you land three or more of the Egg Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.

This sees you rewarded with a total of 15 free spins which seems generous enough compared to most real money online slot machines, but even more generous is the fact that all wins achieved from these free spins are tripled which rarely fails to result in large wins. On top of this the feature can be re-triggered as you play with another 15 free spins added to your count, with Feathered Frenzy boasting a maximum of 180 free spins – although achieving this seems pretty unrealistic.

Frenzy or Fail?

I was pretty hesitant prior to playing Feathered Frenzy as I knew it was based on Ornithology and I’m certainly not a bird watcher, however the quirky symbols and design made it seem more appealing once I actually loaded the slot. The birds have been designed fantastically as symbols however the payout distribution didn’t appeal to me as the King to the 9 playing cards all have the same values – surely the King should be at least slightly more?!

The Wild pays nicely however landing five on a payline for the top prize of 10,000 coins will require a lot of luck. That leaves the free spins mode which boasts you can earn up to 180 free spins which I found pretty unrealistic. However you do get 15 free spins and any wins are tripled in value which is very rewarding. The free spins mode is the only reason I’ll come back to Feathered Frenzy as I prefer the vast bonus features in the Viking Quest slot machine from Big Time Gaming instead.
