Yardbirds Slot Game Review
Yardbirds is a slot game that has many players… confused?! Amazed!? We’re not quite sure – but we like it!
The first thing many players think when they see Yardbirds, is that it’s based around Angry Birds – the popular game which launched on iOS devices and went on to become a global hit, with millions of users. While Yardbirds isn’t specifically based on Angry Birds, there are some unmissable similarities, and it’s clear that the development team at Aristocrat Gaming Technologies.
Despite being played on a 3X3 grid, Yardbirds actually offers a fairly impressive range of features.
The first is called the Foxy free-spins Bonus, and this is triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols anywhere in view across the reels. They don’t need to be on a winning payline, which is nice to know!
During the free-spins bonus, the fox symbol turns into a wild symbol, so it’s well worth keeping an eye out for him during the gameplay, as he can be worth a LOT of money if you get a few him!
The other bonus is the Chicken and Egg bonus, and this is triggered by hitting three or more of the bonus symbols on the reels.
Unfortunately, this is essentially a “pick me” bonus, so while you’re not going to come away from it with a 1,000X win, it’s a decent little bonus round, and can pay around 50-100X quite comfortably.
Pros: Yardbirds is quite cool, despite the small game grid. The 3X3 layout is unique, and offers something new to many players.
Cons: If you prefer classic 5-reel Video Slots, you’ll probably want to swerve Yardbirds.
