The wombat says: Fancy a trip into an enchanted wood? Well, follow me Wombat Fans deep into the magical night-time land of Owl Eyes slot. Actually don’t follow me, I’m a complete chicken. You lot go ahead, and I’ll, errr, meet you in the Ye Olde Forest Tavern later on…
Owl Eyes slot features a load of enchanted forest regulars like badgers and friendly faced trees (yes really), a full moon, plus some excellent sound effects including an eerie theme tune and whole host of animal noises that twitter and hoot as you spin the mystical reels.
The graphics are like something out of a Tolkien book, with a hand-drawn sketch feel to them, while the reels are set against the backdrop of a midnight misty forest that’s alive with magical green fireflies all lit up in a moonlight glow. We like!
Owl Eyes Slot Game Play
Owl Eyes is a 5 reel, 4 row, 15 payline slot from NextGen Gaming. Your symbols on the reels include toadstools, a fluttery owl’s feather, the tree with a face, and this wombat’s favourite nocturnal beast, the stripy badger. Then there are the 9s, 10s, Js, Qs, Ks & As that make up your lower paying symbols. The happy faced tree-man symbol is the high roller in the game, scooping you up to 1,000 coins for 5x of them.
The Wild in Owl Eyes slot, is the orange owl eyes symbol. This rare beauty can substitute for all other symbols on the screen, which creates heaps more chances for you to make winning combos! The Owl Eyes Wild will only land on reels 2, 3 and 4, but when it does, the symbols will become stacked on the reels, plus, whenever a Wild is in a combo on a payline, ALL your wins will get doubled with help from a handy x2 multplier. This can lead to some twit-twooly big payouts especially in the Free Spins Bonus.
Moon Scatter and Owl Free Spins
Get ready for your head to do a full 360 degrees just like the Owl’s in this slot! Yes, you’ll be dizzy once you enter the Free Spins Bonus round, but the question is, how do you trigger it? Land 3x more of the Moon Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll get hit this nice little bonus.
OK, 5 Free Spins does sound a bit on the mean side compared with some other slots, but don’t forget that extra stacked Wild symbols will be added to your reels for the duration of the bonus round, too. You’ve got the wise old Owl to thank for that…
This game is a bit on the basic side Slot Fans, both in look and feel and in the gameplay – and we had hoped for more than 5 Spins in the Bonus too. However, the Stacked Wild Symbols really do make Owl Eyes slot more lucrative, so we’re not complaining too much. Overall we like the game, especially the woodland nature theme, but can’t help but think that it might be time for an update…
