Owl Eyes is a nature themed video slot which has been released by NextGen Gaming. Unlike other nature themed games, this one tries to focus on the nocturnal fauna of the world, with a little bit of fantasy thrown in for fun. Badgers, owls, toadstools and trees (with faces in them) are all part and parcel of this slot’s setup. A total of 50 adjustable paylines are present on the 5 reels of this game, and players can select line bets which stem from 1p up to £2 in all. As you can imagine then, you will be wagering anything from 1p per line per spin, up to £100 a spin on this slot. Top non-progressive prizes are worth 1,000 coins in all.
Wild symbols are vitally important in the game. Wilds show up as the titular owls, and they can appear only on the second, third and fourth reels of the slot. When they do, they can replace all other symbols save for the scattered moon icon.
Moons are scatters as we’ve said, and these symbols can offer you scattered wins worth 5x, 20x, or 100x your total bet. These icons will also trigger a free spins bonus round if enough of them appear anywhere on the reels of the game.
So, how many do you need. Technically, you only need to land 3 scatters to trigger the free spins bonus. You could land 4 or 5 of them, and although that will boost your scattered wins, it won’t make any difference to the number of spins you get. You will always start with 5 free spins, with extra stacked wilds being present on the reels throughout the bonus round.
Truth be told, there isn’t actually anything that special about the wilds, scatters, or free spins in this NextGen Gaming slot. They are all standard. However, players may appreciate the theme of this slot, as there really isn’t anything else quite like it in the online casino world at this moment in time.
