Birthday! is a 5-reel, 4-row, 178 ways to win video slot featuring Happy Spins, Free Spins, Walking Wilds, Sticky Wilds, and optional betting strategies.
Birthday eliminates conventional paylines in favor of a system that counts wins when symbols are located in adjacent reels and rows. These winning combinations do not have to follow any particular pattern, but symbols must be connected horizontally or diagonally in consecutive reels. So, for example, a symbol in the top row in Reel 1 would not “connect” with a matching symbol in the third row of Reel 2.
At random moments during the game, a doorbell may ring triggering the the Happy Spins feature. Happy Spins are a number of respins that continue until certain conditions are met:
Spin until a given number of wins: If the Camel appears, respins will continue until 3 -5 (selected at random) wins are achieved.
Spin until 5-of-a-Kind: The moose character, Mr Lake, gifts continuous respins until a 5-of-a-Kind win appears on the reels.
Electrified symbol: This feature selects a random symbol and respins will continue as long as further instances of this symbol appear on the reels. Any time this symbol lands, it will become sticky on the reels.
Spin until a given win: When the Matador appears, a random symbol is selected and respins will continue until a win occurs with that selected symbol.
Spin until a big win: When pirate Anne Bonny appears, respins continue until a win of at least 15x the wager occurs on a single respin.
Birthday! Free Spins
When the Maggie character appears on the screen at random, the player is awarded 10 free spins. She may appear during the Free Spin feature and re-trigger additional free spins.
In addition to the standard Wild, two special Wild symbols may appear during Happy or Free Spins:
Sticky Wilds: Up to 3 Sticky Wilds may be placed on the reels. These will remain sticky for the entirety of the Happy of Free Spin feature.
Walking Wilds: Up to 3 Walking Wilds may appear on the reels during the spin features. Walking Wilds more left one reel during each spin/respin.
In the game options menu, the player has the ability to select 1 of 4 different betting strategies:
Optimizer: This option automatically adjusts the bet based on a percentage of the player’s balance. Bet optimization can be adjusted to suit casual players (1% of the balance) up to high rollers (10% of the balance).
Leveller: After 5 consecutive losing spins, the bet level will increase two levels. When a winning combination is made, the bet level will increase to the original level.
Booster: The bet level will raise one level after each losing round until reaching a maximum of 4 bet levels above the original wager. The original bet level will increase after a win.
Jumper: The bet level will increase after each consecutive winning round until reaching 4 bet levels above the orignal bet. A spin without a win will reset the bet level to the original wagering amount.
Please note that betting strategies require that certain bet levels must be chosen. When a betting strategy is selected, the available bet levels will be highlighted.
