Birthday slot a five-reel, four-row online slot by the incredibly talented Elk Studios that gives you 178 ways to win. You can play it at home or on-the-go with stakes of 10p to £50, and the maximum payout is an incredible £250,000. If you’re familiar with the software developer, Elk Studios, you’ll recognise many of the characters in the slot from some of its other recent titles, including Taco Brothers, Bloopers, Wild Toro, and Electric Sam. As you’ve likely already guessed from the name, this brand-new release is all about birthdays, but no matter what month you were born in, you’re sure to want to join the party! The special features include wild substitutions, re-spins, free spins, sticky wilds, and “Walking Wilds”, the majority of which are awarded by the famous faces in the slot such as Electric Sam and The Matador.
The setting for the Birthday slot game is a trendy bar with low-level lighting featuring shelves of alcoholic beverages, champagne buckets, and feature walls. Standing behind the bar with his arms crossed is Toro the Bull, and down at the far end of the bar enjoying a refreshing pint of cold beer is Pepe from Taco Brothers. The playing area has five reels and four rows of symbols, the latter of which are populated with celebration-themed symbols like balloons, flowers, cocktail glasses, the “Birthday” game logo, and a cake.
The cake represents the wild symbol in the slot game, and it can replace any of the other symbols to create and enhance winning combinations.
There is no scatter symbol in this slot game, but don’t worry because the bonus features on offer are even better.
To ensure that the party doesn’t fall flat, Elk Studios have guaranteed that plenty of VIP guests will turn up, and when you hear the sound of a doorbell chiming, you’ll be itching to know who the latest arrival is. The doorbell also marks the commencement of the randomly-awarded bonus feature, which can award Happy Spins, wilds, and free spins, all of which can be combined.
The five Happy Spins features keep the reels spinning until:
- The Camel – three, four or five wins are achieved;
- Electric Sam – you’ve collected as many instances of the symbol that Sam chooses as possible;
- Mr Lake – a five-of-a-kind win is created;
- The Matador – a win with the symbol chosen by The Matador occurs;
- Anne Bonny – a Big Win (N.B., twenty times your bet) is awarded.
- The Bonus can also give you free spins courtesy of Electric Sam’s Maggie, who awards ten free games which can be triggered.
Two wild symbol features form the final part of the bonus game in the Birthday slot, and both are bestowed on you by the Bloopers. You can get three sticky wilds or three Walking Wilds.
