Set within a deep, dark, mysterious forest in the middle of the night is the latest online slot game that we’re reviewing from NextGen. There are fireflies dancing amongst the towering trees, crickets chirping, a river flowing and owls twit twoo-ing. The scene is intense and magical…and the visuals featured within Owl Eyes slot game create this effect perfectly.  The 5 transparent reels are framed with lush greenery and display 50 pay lines to bet upon. The main feature of Owl Eyes is the free spins bonus.

Set within the magical reels of Owl Eyes are the theme-related symbols which could have been taken straight from a fairy-tale book. The highest win symbols are a tree trunk with a face, a striking badger, a toadstool and a feather, while the lower value symbols are Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9.

The close-up symbol of the fiery and intense eyes of the owl is the wild icon. This appears on the second, third and fourth reel only, and substitutes all symbols but the scatter. Keep an eye out (no pun intended!) for the animation as the owl creates winning combinations, where all wins will be doubled too.

The scatter symbol is the glowing full moon. Land 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels and you will be treated to 5 free spins, the main feature of the game. The free spins come with additional stacked wilds and can be retriggered, so there’s a pretty decent chance of winning a substantial amount if you’re lucky.

Lastly, Owl Eyes allows players to gamble their winnings at the end of any base game spin. This is a typical playing card prediction game that is very rewarding if you manage a lucky streak, but if you guess incorrectly, you will lose the whole win, so be careful.

Verdict

In terms of gameplay and features, Owl Eyes is pretty standard, with a good free spins game but nothing additional to entice us. The free spins game is your key to the biggest wins. The most striking aspect about Owl Eyes is the mysterious and exciting theme, in which the graphics and sound effects complement greatly. It’s worth playing to experience these alone.
