The one thing that stands out from the slots created by Betsoft is the innovative ideas used in their designs. In Birds slot game, they had blurred the boundaries between a slot and an arcade game. The storyline of this game revolves around a group of tiny loony birds enjoying a sunny afternoon while perching upon three power-lines running between two electricity poles! Apart from the little cute birds, this slot also provides a totally different gaming mechanism along with a unique pay-line structure.
Birds slot game comes with five reels and three rows in a 5×3 format. Now you will say what is the difference? The difference lies in the fact that unlike the other regular slots, reels of this game does not spin. Instead of spinning, the birds come and fly away from the three wires!
The other unique thing about this slot is the absence of the pay-lines. Payouts are made based on the winning combinations made by a group of three or more similar birds in vertical or horizontal position on the reels. Even the individual group of more than three birds provides a cash prize. Only diagonal grouping is not allowed.
The background of the reels comprises of a scene from a city park, with skyscrapers forming the horizon. All of the little birdies are enjoying sunshine in a small park accompanied by a soundtrack of running water in a rivulet and chirruping of the birds. As expected from a product of Betsoft, the graphics of this game are state of the art three dimensional animated characters.
This slot also provides a type of cascading effect. In this feature new symbols take place of the winning symbols that fly away from the wires. This helps in creating new groups of the birds thus increasing the chances of creating extra wins without going for the next spin.
