With the Owl Eyes slot game you’ll be thinking, all the better to see you with, my dear. Not that Next Gen Gaming are looking at you on your desktop or mobile as you spin these five reels.

That would be an invasion of privacy, and pretty weird. But, in all fairness, this is a weird enchanted forest we are in and all these Owl Eyes want to see is us spinning our way to a fortune, presumably so we can buy them a shed load of bird feed or something.

Gameplay

This enchanted forest is particularly well designed from Next Gen, with luminescent glow bugs dancing their way across the reel case. Our high symbols in the base game are feathers, toadstools, a badger (perhaps a mystical, fortune-reading badger at that) and a wise old tree that looks like he can give the owls a run for their money. Our other symbols are 9s through Aces, drawn in an enchanted fashion which boosts the game’s mystical aura, as does the chirping crickets and occasional hoots.

Naturally, the Owl Eyes symbol is Wild. Makes sense. He/she/it is stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4 and doubles the prizes on winning combinations across this game’s whopping 50 lines. That’s right – 50. Maybe Next Gen think we are playing with owl vision and can see double the frame rate of human eyes.

Bonuses

We launch the Free Games Feature when we land three or more Moon Scatters, which leave a gloriously glittering trail of moon dust as we wait for the final Moon to land. Initial feelings are dubious – we are only granted five free spins – however, the Wild Owl Eyes are seemingly everywhere with Additional Stacked Wilds. Apart from looking like a particularly weird episode of Twin Peaks, this does mean that we may only have a few free spins to shout about but boy do we have the opportunity to gain maximum winnings from them.

Summary

There is plenty of winning potential offered by these mystical birds, all stacked up Wild in their furry towers, fluffing our winnings even further when we trigger the Free Spins feature. It’s plenty nice to look at too, the kind you could enjoy on a moonlit night with a cup of hot chocolate (with maybe a dash of Cointreau for luck).
