Eyecon Gaming’s Happy Birthday slot is just the ticket for this wombat, after all, who wants to wait a whole year for cake and candles? These guys are the people behind the Pig’s Feast slot machine which could be related if you think about it!
When I saw that landing a bottle of fizz (on the reels) could boost my wallet by a welcome 450 coins, I was ready to get my glad rags on and join the party!
Look and feel
Eyecon have thrown all caution to the wind with Happy Birthday! slot, stuffing it full of all the fun and nonsense that makes a birthday such a treat. This game is bursting with more colour than the Strolling Staxx slot and that is going some…
Behind the reels you’ll see a sky full of colourful balloons and bunting. The frame of the reels is a red and yellow flashing party lights. If this game doesn’t say “fiesta,” then I don’t know what does!
The annual celebration of you and making some fat pocket money takes place over 3 rows, 5 reels and 25 pay-lines.
The icons on the reels made my little wombat face light up as they are some of my favourites things. If you want cherries and melons then head for the Fruity 3×3 slot as this game is all about party gear.
The most valuable icons are a vuvuzela or party horn (which doubles as the Wild), a purple hippo and a panda plushie (lovers of Eyecon’s Fluffy series will recognise these fellas); land five of these on an active pay-line and expect to collect a big old 950 coin prize.
Then there’s a bottle of fizz with its cork about to pop out- land five of these on an active pay-line and expect to collect 450 coins. There’s a pair of clinking champagne flutes, and a bunch of heart-shaped balloons which are both worth the same amount, 5 of these landing on a pay-line brings you a nice little present in the shape of a 250 coin reward.
There is also a mega cup cake with a massive swirl of pink icing and a bouquet of flowers, worth a reasonable 125 coins for five. The lowest value icons are a purple musical note (to help you tune up for everybody’s favourite song), a present, a party hat, and a party blower. These final three icons are worth a less exciting 100 coins for landing five on a pay-line.
The Happy Birthday Slot’s Scatter is a towering chocolate cake with candles and this is what gets you a crack at the bonus feature.
Free Spins feature
If you get 3 or more of that delicious Scatter anywhere on the reels then you’ll gain 15 free spins. Land a further trio of Scatters and you can gain an additional 15 free spins. And there’s a further gift on offer here, any wins in this mode are subject to a triple multiplier. Many happy returns!
And if you just can’t resist upping the ante Happy Birthday comes with a Gamble function. If you’re brave enough you can try to double you money, or lose the lot. You can give this function a whirl up to five times in a row.
While I can’t pretend that this is the only birthday party in town, age is only a number and Happy Birthday’s cheerful vibe and triple multiplier for your 15 free spins isn’t to be sniffed at. After all, you could be the winner of payouts which could be as large as 1,140 times your wager. What can I say but “Happy Birthday?”
