Owl Eyes is a mystical slot by software developer NextGen Gaming. The setting of the slot is a mysterious, dark forest and the background music strongly contributes to a great execution of the theme! If you want to have all the possible ways in which you can win to your disposal, you do have to play on all 50 pay lines. When you do this, all wild symbols will only appear in your playing grid stacked, making this an above-average slot. Additionally, Owl Eyes is also equipped with a free spins feature. Unfortunately, however, the number of free spins that can be won in this game is a bit of a let-down.
How to play Owl Eyes?
Owl Eyes is a slot that looks like most other slots and especially like most other NextGen Gaming slots when it comes to its layout. That is, Owl Eyes has the standard number of five reels, but a not-so-standard number of rows; it has four rows instead of the usual three. Additionally, the slot makes use of quite some standard symbols, which range all the way from the nine to the Ace. And that is quite a shame as it doesn’t seem like NextGen Gaming couldn’t have come up with some more theme-appropriate animations.
Luckily, the animations NextGen did decide to use in this game are sharp and forest-related. Naturally, you will get to meet the Owl himself. This Owl functions as the wild and can substitute for any other symbol except the Moon. The reason for this is that the Moon functions as the scatter and leads to free spins.
Wild Feature on Owl Eyes
Actually, it shouldn’t really be called a feature, but it is an important aspect of the game. That is, the owl will appear stacked on your reels, and when you’re playing with all 50 pay lines, that will make wins add up quickly! For example, it might happen that two stacked wilds land adjacent to each other and when that happens, it will definitely lead to a Big Win. Moreover, the wild doesn’t only substitute for any other symbol, it also multiplies every win it is involved in! And this is precisely why wins tend to amount to greater monetary gain on Owl Eyes than on most other online slot games.
Free spins on Owl Eyes
And for if the feature involving the wild isn’t enough, this game also has free spins in stock for you! In order to unlock free spins, you will need at least three moons, the scatters, to land on your playing grid. When this happens, you will receive five free spins, during which there will even be more wild symbols, which leads to great wins in most cases. Technically, it would be possible to unlock another batch of free spins whilst already spinning for free, but in practice, it would be hard to do. That is, you would need another three Moons to land on your reels, but seeing as your reels will mainly be inhabited by stacked Owls, the wilds, landing three scatters won’t happen very often.
Pay lines on Owl Eyes
Owl Eyes is fitted with a total of 50 pay lines and it would be wise to play on all of them. That is, Owl Eyes has the abovementioned wild feature that you wouldn’t want to miss out on by switching off a couple of pay lines. If you still intend to play with fewer active pay lines, however, you can find the pay line buttons at the bottom of the slot. Also, you can change the number of active pay lines by clicking on your preferred number directly alongside the reels.
Owl Eyes also packs the well-known gamble feature, which unfortunately hasn’t been altered to fit the rest of the slot, but you can wager newly formed wins. Owl Eyes is also equipped with an autoplay function, but one that does not turn off automatically once you reach free spins. It is only after free spins have ended and you’re shown your total win that the slot will stop spinning. In the bottom left corner of the screen, you can turn off the sound.
