The Wild Birthday Blast online slot is a 5 reel and 30 payline standard online slot machine game. This animal themed slot game was developed by 2×2 Gaming, and quite often mistaken as a Microgaming slot. The slots look and feel might be similar to the standards of what you might be used to from Microgaming, but Microgaming in this case is just the distributor of the game, whilst 2×2 Gaming can take full software credit.
Wild Birthday Blast has all the regular bells and whistles including wild symbol, scatters and multipliers, and with a maximum jackpot of 12 500 coins.
Wild Birthday Graphics and Sound Effects
This 5 reel and 30 payline online slot game has a background depicting a party with brightly coloured balloons and streamers scattered all over the place. The sound effects are average and with every spin of the reels a short birthday party celebratory jingle is played.
There are a range of colourful animal and birthday-themed symbols displayed including the standard Vegas-style symbols such as the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. The more relevant theme-related symbols are the giraffe, parrot, a beaver, an elephant, a gift box, and the scatter and wild symbols. The wild symbol is showcased with the word ‘wild’ in big bold letters along with a couple of party horns, and the scatter symbol showcases the words ‘free spin bonus’.
How to Play Wild Birthday Blast
As with all other online slot machine games the aim is to land with as many of the same symbol across the reels in order to form a winning combination. As little as 2 of the same symbol will create some kind of a win no matter how small. 3, 4, and 5 of the same symbol will payout considerably more.
Each symbol has its own pay table attached to it. For example, the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, pay out the least, and the animal symbols pay out the most, with the elephant at the top of the food chain in this instance paying out a maximum of 1 250 coins. And with each winning combination you land on created by animal symbols you’ll be greeted with the relevant animals’ sound effects to commemorate your win.
Wilds, Scatters and Bonus Features
Wild Birthday Blast slots wild symbol only appears on lines 2, 3, 4 and 5 and will substitute for any other symbol on the board with the aim of creating winning combinations. The only symbol it cannot substitute for is the scatter ‘free spin bonus’ symbol.
The ‘free spin bonus’ scatter symbol only appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 and dependent on how many scatter symbols you end up with can reward you with 20 free spins.
There are 2 additional bonus features in Wild Birthday Blast. The first bonus feature is activated in the free spin bonus scatter win. During the free spins the gift box symbol will appear and at the end of the spin the gift box will open and form additional winning combinations against the other symbols. Wins formed from this will be paid out in addition to any other wins formed during that round.
The other bonus is called the ‘surprise bonus feature’ that is randomly activated. You will be taken to another screen where 20 doors will be spread out for you to choose from, each one revealing different prizes.
