We’re always partial to a nice animal-themed slot, and they don’t come much more epic than this, celebrating the life of one of the most majestic creatures on Earth: The bald eagle. Eagle’s Wings is a game that combines all kinds of animals and even a bit of Native American culture to tell a grand tale of life in the wilds of the American Rockies.
The scenery is amazing on its own, but there are also some great prizes to be found in the wilderness, so can you grab yourself a piece of the pie? Let’s take a look in our Eagle’s Wings slot game review.
Whatever the theme we think you’ll struggle to find many slots that look as good as Eagle’s Wings, which makes great use of art and colour to craft a striking look that really sucks you in. The background is a lovely pattern reminiscent of Native American art, while the borders of the reels also feature Native carvings of eagles. While the low-value symbols are the standard 9 – A, though they’re very nicely rendered and wearing Native feathers, the high-value symbols are gorgeous vistas that include leaping salmon, soaring eagles and eagle chicks. It’s a shame there aren’t any decent sound effects, but the animations really bring the game to life as eagles catch fish and salmon leap above the waves.
Microgaming games tend not to stray too far from the developers’ template, and that’s definitely the case with Eagle’s Wings, which retains the standard five-reel, three-row and 25 pay line layout that they employ in many of their slots. It’s not all basic though, because the Eagle’s Wings slot game boasts some excellent stacked wilds that can take over whole reels. Five in a row will grant you 1000x your stake, while any wild that appears in a combination will double your win, which is no joke when the top bet is £/€/$31.25. That explains why the RTP is a solid 96%, and as a medium volatility slot, you’ll be among some big wins pretty regularly.
The gold coins covered in Native American designs are the scatter in this game, and finding three of them grants you a random number of free spins up to a maximum of 60 with a 3x multiplier. When you land the scatters you have to choose one of the coins on the reels, behind which you’ll find the random number of free spins that you’re awarded. You have to get very lucky to grab the full 60, but if you do manage it you’ll be sure to make a mint! When combined with the stacked wilds, you’re looking at some pretty incredible wins in the offing.
Eagle’s Wings wows players immediately with the quality of its imagery and graphics, while the lovely animations help to really bring every part of it to life as you play. The main game isn’t as rewarding as it could be, except for the excellent stacked wilds, but if you combine them with the bonus game you can generate some truly big wins worthy of even the proudest eagle!
