Symbol Designs in Detail
The owl is the central focus of the game, which makes sense given the title of Owl Eyes. The design of the owl symbol itself is a wonder to behold. The symbol appears first as a pair of burning owl eyes, but, upon the symbol being matched, the frame animates and pulls back, revealing the full, magnificent owl. The beautiful bird will take off from his perch and fly towards the full moon, creating a silhouette of his enormous wingspan.
If the aesthetic beauty of the owl wasn’t enough to win you over already, the owl is also the wild symbol. This means that the owl will match with any other symbol, creating matching sequences where none were previously possible. Be sure to keep in mind, though, that the wild may not match with itself in this game.
Bonuses and Specials
The full moon is the scatter symbol in the Owl Eyes slot game. If the full moon matches, the player is granted five free spins. During the spins the owl symbol is stacked, meaning that it will occupy three consecutive spaces vertically. This, of course, allows for huge potential for creating winning sequences during each of the five free spins. Furthermore, an upfront payment will be granted when the scatter symbols initially match, the amount of which is determined by the upfront bet for that spin.
Also keep in mind that if the scatter symbol matches during any one of the free spins, the whole free spin sequence will be retriggered from the start, including the initial jackpot payment. Hence, a lucky player may keep the free spins rolling, watching as the cash comes rolling in.
