By all accounts everybody loves birthdays. And that’s not really much of a surprise considering the massive amounts of rich chocolate and ice cream that is consumed on those days.

Anyway, ELK Studios have seen fit to put together an online slot that is all about birthdays in all their glory. Called the Birthday slot, this has high variance, max wins of 5,000x the stake and more features and bonuses than players would know what to do with.

Read on for a grand review.

It’s Our Birthday, It’s Our Birthday

The Birthday slot is a product of ELK Studios and is equipped with 5 reels and 178 ways to win. This slot can be accessed on all devices, with bets per spin costing from 10p to £50.

In the matter of graphics, the slot takes the cake, so to speak. The setting is a stylish New York bar where a party is apparently being thrown for the celebrant.

On the reels can be found such theme-related icons as red roses, cocktails, and birthday cakes. There are also blue, green and red balloons. 

The game logo is present and performs the role of the wild. When helping form wins, it takes the place of all other icons apart from the scatter.

Bonus Features

Happy Spins - These comprise no less than 5 different respins that are triggered at random. During these spins, guests from previous Elk Studios slots make an appearance and comes along with their own distinct extras. Thus:

  • Camel (from the Hidden slot) - Awards respins till players have from 3 to 5 winning spins.
  • Mr Lake (from Lake Five slots) - This character award respins till a 5-of-a-kind winning combo is achieved.
  • Electric Sam (from the Electric Sam slot) - This awards respins so long as copies of a pre-selected icon are present on the reels.
  • Matador (from the Wild Toro slot) - This character picks an icon and will award respins till a winning combo is formed from that particular icon.
  • Anne Bonny (from the Wild Seas slot) - This award respins till a winning combo is formed that is worth at least 15x the stake.

While the Happy Spins feature is taking place, Soundtech Blooper from the Bloopers slot can potentially show up and award different types of wild icons. These wild icons might be sticky wilds or walking wilds and can easily boost player wins.

Free Spins - Should Maggie show up for the festivities, the Free Spins bonus feature in the slot will be triggered. 10 free spins are awarded here and these can be re-triggered virtually indefinitely. Moreover, the Happy Spins feature can potentially activate during the Free Spins bonus round, thus blessing players with really juicy wins.

Final Thoughts

Birthday slot has to be one of the most feature-rich we have come across. It is exceedingly well designed and thought out, with the bonus features being worthy of commendation. Overall, there are loads of reasons to go gaga over this slot.
