The Owl Eyes slot game from NextGen gaming is what you would call a deceptive game. Don’t go by its name, for there is nothing googly eyed about this 5 reel 50 payline game. Simple and straight forward, it is filled with the usual gameplay of wild, scatter, free spins and the gamble feature.
Adding a bit of colour and design to the layout is the lovely forest background with shining bright lights. Unlike a fairy themed slot game, you can see the rather ordinary images of animals, mushrooms, a tree with a face engraved on it and feathers. Adding more to the ordinariness of the game; the card symbol shows up on the reels.
How to play
The gameplay is simple with the 50 paylines enabled. Select the number of paylines that you want to wager a bet on.
Place a bet from 0.01 to 2.0 for a single spin, or press maximum bet to wager on all the lines. Press the spin button to start the game.
The winning payline will be paid out as per the paytable. The RTP is around 95% making this a good slot game for the new and budget players.
The stacked wild is the big feature which will make the small and steady wins to roll in both the base game and the free spins.
Wild Substitution: The game logo of the Owl Eyes is the wild symbol which will substitute for the other symbol except for the Full Moon scatter symbol. It appears only on reel 2, 3 and 4 and is stacked, increasing your winning chances. Plus, there is a 2x multiplier for every win which happens with a wild substitution.
Scatter Wins: The Full Moon scatter will shine brightly anywhere on the reel and pay the scatter wins. The game will pay a massive payout of 100x time the total bet, when 5 of them are seen on the reels. For 4 of a kind symbol, you will get 20 times the total bet; and for 3 of a kind symbol, you will get 5 times the total bet.
Free spin bonus game: The free spins are triggered when 3 or more of the scatter symbol is seen on the reel. You will win 5 free spins, which can be re-triggered. You can win more during this round as additional stacked wilds are added to the reels.
Gamble Feature: There is a double or quadruple multiplier for every successful outcome in the gamble feature. Make a correct guess on the next card colour or the card suit respectively and add to your bankroll. A wrong guess will make you lose all your winnings from that spin.
The rules are straight forward and simple. The wins are paid out as per the paytable.
The symbols must line up from left to right to create a winning payline.
Scatter, wild, and free spin wins are added to the final total at the end of the spin and are paid out. If there are multiple wins in a single spin; only the highest win is paid out.
Any malfunction will make the game null and void.
The betting range from 0.01 to 2.0 can be made on any or all the 50 paylines by increasing or decreasing their bet value.
