Feathered Frenzy Slot
The Feathered Frenzy slot is a cartoon bird themed slot from Big Time Gaming slot released back in August of 2013.
It is a 5x3 reel slot with medium variance, 20 pay lines and an RTP of 96.3%. The biggest wins come from multiplier wilds and a lucrative free spins round. You can play Feathered Frenzy from €0.20 to €200 per spin at participating casinos.
Design & Symbols
The design will be familiar to anyone who has played some of BTG’s other slots from this era (Gold and Vegas Dreams spring to mind. The game board, which takes the form of a wooden garden fence, takes up the entire screen.
The fence has grass at peeping out at the bottom and creeping ivy winding around panels at the top. As with Gold and Vegas Dreams there are banks of flashing bulbs to the sides and top of the reels. Gentle birdsong plays in the background while the reel spin imitates the sound made from an old one-arm bandit.
The Royals 9-A make up the low value symbols whereas the higher value symbols are all cartoon birds. In ascending order of value they are a Red Cardinal, a Bluebird, an Owl, a Parrot, and a Toucan. The Toucan is the most rewarding, paying 37.5x the bet size for 5 on a payline. The wild is a golden bird and the scatter is a big golden egg.
The wild in Feathered Frenzy provides a little more bang for your buck that the average wild in the base game, and there is also a potentially lucrative free spin game to enjoy..
The wild in this game is worthy of special mention for two reasons. Firstly it automatically doubles any win of which it is part, which is a nice touch. Secondly it is the biggest winning symbol on the board. The wild pays 500x the bet size for 5 of a kind– 13x bigger than the next biggest symbol.
Three scatters trigger 15 free spins, during which every win is subject to a 3x multiplier (except if you land 5 wilds). The bonus round will retrigger if you manage to land another three scatters during your spins. In fact they can retrigger up to a maximum of 180 spins. If you get on a roll with the free spins and retriggers then you can be sure of a decent pay-off.
Our Thoughts on Feathered Frenzy
Feathered Frenzy is a fairly generic Big Time Gaming slot with just the one feature and the wild multiplier. It won’t really appeal to serious players but with its bright colours and fun theme it might be worth a flutter for the casual gamer (or ornithologists?).
Although there isn’t much to the game I did find the free spin round quite enjoyable. It retriggered relatively often and the abundance of wilds multiplied some decent wins.
It’s fair to say that Big Time Gaming have moved on considerably since the release of this slot but if you like birdsong, ‘angry birds’ type characters, and a simple, unchallenging slot then by all means give this a spin.
