Owl Eyes is a game that is offered by NextGen Gaming and which is available in a theme that revolves around creatures of the forest. The owl is obviously a major actor in this game, but there are other wild animals as well present. It’s an enchanted forest look that they went for, but the design works for it.
Owl Eyes works with 5x4 reels and with up to 50 active lines. There are very good rewards to go after, with up to $50,000 being offered inside, plus I think there are enjoyable features as well, with scatters, regular and stacked wilds and free spins available at different points in the game.
Betting and Prizes
The betting is done on up to 50 lines, but that means that you get the option to use even only 1 if that’s what you prefer. There are line bets that vary between $0.01 and $10, and so you can spend between $0.01 and $500 for each spin. That’s a very big range that you can work with, but I consider that a plus in the favor of the slot, since it doesn’t leave out anyone.
A winning combination with a reward of 1,000x is among those offering bigger rewards, of up to $10,000 in its case. The scatter does even better though, with its prize of 100x total stake taking the value up to $50,000. The average RTP is not very attractive, but if you really enjoy the rest of the game it will work just fine, being at 95.303%.
Owl Eyes Slot Machines Features
The symbol that’s actually showing you the Owl with a close-up of its eyes is the one that’s getting the ability of a wild. Wild symbols with the Owl will land on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reels. Their only role is to behave as replacements for any of the other regular symbols, getting you a lot more wins as you play. It does not replace a scattered Full Moon.
Full Moon symbols are not limited in the reels on which they can appear. All five reels can get them, but a cash reward and their feature is offered for as few as three symbols. The best reward, of 100x total stake, comes from having all five present though.
The scatters are the ones triggering 5 free spins for you, where there are additional stacked symbols present on the reels. You will have the option to retrigger free spins, but you need another three or more Full Moon symbols to appear during those initial 5 free spins. With the extra stacked wilds present on the reels, the free spins will tend to be more profitable than the base game rounds.
Theme & Design
Owl Eyes offers an enchanted forest for its background image, but the action takes place at night, which is exactly what you’d expect when an owl is present, since it’s a creature of the night. In addition to the owl’s eyes, you also see symbols with a Full Moon, with a living tree that’s sporting a face, with toadstools, feathers and other animals of the forest. They didn’t miss this opportunity to use poker cards once again, but at least they look halfway themed and they sport green decorations.
Owl Eyes could improve some of its features and payouts, to make itself even more appealing, but it can work as it is if you don’t have too many expectations of it.
