NextGen welcome us to their mystical and enchanted new slot feature, Owl Eyes.
A game brimming with so much magical allure, you could choke a gobblin on it. The scene is wonderfully captured, deep in the murk’s of the forest, our eyes guided by hazy lights and the sparkle of a fairies. Well done NextGen for creating the perfect scene and adding real depth to this games look. The animation of movement is suitable as it really should be in such context. It took a while for us to even notice the white rabbit moving and the random sprouting of toadstools.
For basic gaming details the slot hosts the option of 50 win lines. The smallest bet stake is 0.01 and climbs to 10.00. There is also the additional gamble feature, which now is slowly becoming a main betting tool of slot machines. In this gamble you can chose to double or lose your entire winnings, it all comes down to the decision of picking either red or black card hands or the correct suite to make your winnings even more. You also have the Auto Stop button once you’ve spun the reels, should you wish to play a faster game.
The gaming symbols boast rich detail in animation for what are fairly small icon grids. The Mystical Owl wild symbol will radiate its glare and fly off into the moonlight.
The Game is a classic NextGen production. Very simple to play and very good on the eye. The theme sits neatly in the middle for both sexes, it’s not girly and it’s not macho for the full bloody male. So they have created a game, a rare game that can cross the divides of fussy players.
Bonuses and Rewards
As mentioned the Wild takes form of the Owl. This only appears within reels 2, 3 and 4 and will play all symbols except for the moon. The moon symbol is a free spin feature that offers 5 with additional wild stacks, but you’ll need 3 or more of these moons to profit. The scatter moons will multiply your winnings of up to 100 times your bet stake. The feature of free spins can be re-triggered within the features gameplay itself.
Of the remaining symbols at game play level the most rewarding to land are 5 of the ‘tree face’. If lucky you can win 1000 times your betting value.
It’s not the most animated of NextGen games it has to be said. We like the mystical theme, but you’d be hard pressed to beat their own Merlin Magic Respins game. It would have been nice to see some solid character driven game with Owl Eyes, may be in a revamp down the line.
