The wombat says:Let’s add this Microgaming release to the category called spirit-animal inspired slots shall we, Wombat Fans? Or flying games? We also have a “When Pigs Fly slot” and Owl Eyes you know.
The eagle is also pretty good in the air and has always the sacred bird for many tribes of Native Americans, and then it became the symbol for the United States. And now it’s been turned into a slot, and a ruddy decent one, too!
Yes, Eagle’s Wings takes you on a flight to the Great Outdoors in the United States, where bald eagles soar, native American totem poles litter the landscape and fish jump 15 ft out of the water (reminds me of the Penguin Splash slot machine– with the fishees I mean).
What a great place! Except for all the nasty-looking eagles that is. I hear they’re quite partial to a wombat, and have you seen how sharp their beaks are? Anyway enough about me, lets check out this nature filled game.
Eagle’s Wings Game Play
Eagle’s Wings slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay/lines like many other Microgaming releases (except for the 243 Ways to Win games like the Asian Beauty slot). The Bald Eagle is the focus of this slot and makes up features two of the symbols on the reels; there’s also an eaglet and a leaping fish which must be a spot of lunch for the whole eagle family. The usual playing card icons; 10, J, Q, K & A make up your lower value symbols and are decorated with the eagle’s feathers.
The reels are set against a background of snow-capped mountains (in fact we think it looks a lot like another one of Microgaming outdoor-themed slots, Alaskan Fishing) and the slot’s soundtrack isn’t too bad either as it resounds with Native American panpipe melodies.
The Eagle’s Wings logo is Wild symbol in this slot and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels except for the Scatter. It will land as Stacked, which means you’ll keep on scooping plenty of little wins all through the base game. There is also a x2 multiplier on all winning combos so you get double the pay out. Simply excellent news!
Lucky Eagle Bonus
The Scatter in this slot is the ‘Lucky Eagle’ Indian totem symbol, and if you manage to land 3x or more of these anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger off this really rather lucrative Free Spins bonus round. Hurrah!
First you must choose how many spins you’ll be dished out in the bonus: so pick from one of the Golden Totem Scatters and it will reveal a hidden amount underneath. It goes all the way up to 60 free spins which is a really generous amount. And that’s not the only thing Wombat Fans, all your wins will multiplied by x3, and the Free Spins bonus can also be re-triggered. This makes us very happy indeed.
Eagle’s Wings bonus rounds got this Wombat flying high! In fact we were positively soaring when we won an absolutely enormous 3393 credits! But don’t worry, the Stacked Wilds keep things interesting in the base game, too, just in case you don’t manage to trigger it! Our advice? It’s definitely worth checking out, and it turns out were big fans of those eagles after all…
