Birdy Bucks


Birdy Bucks

This is one of the first new games released by AGS on the Colossal Gaming platform the company acquired when it absorbed that company last year.

The base game is a four-reel, 81-ways-to-win video slot presented on a 42-inch vertical monitor. Comical animated bird characters celebrate different levels of wins, and six animated birds sit atop the game screen at all times. In a random base-game feature, one or more of the birds—up to all six—can fly over to the tree and perch over one of the reels, turning symbols wild. The wild birds increase the base game to 375 ways to win.

Three or more bonus symbols trigger a pick-‘em bonus. The bonus symbols, eggs, crack open and birds fly out of the shells to initiate the picking screen. Players are also awarded 50 credits times the bet multiplier for three triggers or 500 credits times the bet multiplier for four triggers.

In the bonus, the screen shows a fountain with birds perched on multiple levels. The player receives three initial picks, revealing credit amounts, credit amounts plus extra picks, or bonus multipliers. A maximum of 10 picks can be awarded, with two 2X multipliers. The game reveals the values of the unpicked birds when the bonus ends.

The game is available in both Class II and Class III versions.
