Birds On A Wire Slot Thunderkick

Birds on a Wire is a 5 reels video slot with 17 pay-lines which runs on Thunderkick software platform. Standard reels are replaced with 3 rows of 5 animated and colorful birds of different shapes and sizes, sitting on electric lines against the backdrop of fields, sky and trees. Once you spin the reels you move to another section of lines where 15 more birds settle. Give this slot a go here for free or visit Thunderkick listed casinos to play for real money.

Before you start playing with these attention grabbing birds, make sure to adjust your bet. If you click on "bet" button, available wagers will open across the screen, and all you need to do is pick and click on the bet you wish to place. The lowest wager is 0.10 and the highest one is 100. Once you set your bet you click "Spin" which will start turning the reels, and "auto-play" option will spin the reels without interruption for a preset number of times.

This innovative and fun video slot is fairly simple but it still has some interesting features to offer. These features include dropping symbols, a wild symbol, a bonus symbol, high voltage multipliers, and inwinity spin.

Dropping symbols occur in the base game and the free spins each time you hit a winning combo. The birds involved in this combo will get electrocuted into oblivion and other birds will alight in their place. Once this bird switch has been made, new combos will become possible, and with each consecutive win you hit, a multiplier will increase up to 5x.

The wild symbol in the game is a big, pear-shaped black bird with yellow stripes. It acts as a substitution for any symbol except the bonus symbol.

The bonus symbol is shown in the form of a cardboard box with a couple of yellow eyes visible. Once you hit three or more of these on the reels, a cat will come out and scare away the birds to another set of lines. Here, you will be awarded with 10 free spins. Any additional symbol you hit will grant you 2 additional spins and they can go up to 34.

High voltage multipliers increase by one level for each win on a drop. Multiplier levels in the base game are 1x, 2x, 3x and 5x, whereas in the bonus game levels go 4x, 8x, 12x and 20x.

Inwinity spin is triggered once all free spins in a bonus game have been played. Once activated, the reels in the game will continue to spin until it hits a winning combination.

Thunderkick have produced a bunch of games now with "interesting" variations on traditional symbols such as the happy, music playing skulls in Esqueleto Explosivo and the russian dolls in Babushka, so this game "Birds on a Wire" seems right up their street. Rather than just a set of spinning reels, you get fifteen random birds flying onto the screen and settling on ... well, wires of course. The rolling reels mechanic is used yet again here with an ascending multiplier up to 5x for consecutive wins, a setup which seems to be used a lot at the moment especially by Thunderkick.

There's 17 fixed paylines, a strange number until recently but one that Thunderkick seems particularly fond of using. Despite the fixed paylines mean you can choose a betsize anywhere from 0.10 up to 100.00 which will suit players who like to play all of the lines very well, but not so much those that like to play just a single line or some other strange setup in order to take the variance of their favourite games into stratospheric territory.


Whilst the graphics are cute, the sound reasonably appealing and the presentation typically high Thunderkick quality the wins leave something to be desired, at least in the base game. The free spins mode improves things somewhat with additional multipliers all the way up to 20x and the opportunity to win additional free spins quite easily as you only need a single scatter to add a couple of spins, but I've still struggled to achieve a decent win after a lot of play and in fact I can only recall a couple of hits above 100x my stake since I first played the game.

Thunderkick have done a handful of decent games so far, my favourite being the excellent "Arcader", but that game had several features and many wins of achieving a big win. Birds on a wire is quite similar in many ways but seems like a less developed version of that concept and for that reason I won't be bothering playing this one again in the future except for maybe when it comes up in the Videoslots battles!

Birds on a Wire is very well known game by Thunderkick and cartoonish game in 3D that I like to play.Nice graphics come with very cute birds standing on a wire and singing their song. ..waiting for their love one to come ..sounds romantic to me.

It is all about cute birds and you playing this fun game. I have played Birds on a Wire in Casumo Casino and its been a while since I last time played Thunderkick games and I actually miss them.

Unfortunately look over the paytable is not promising at all and the same goes for many other Thunderckick games.

They look very attractive and its hard to resist not to try it but then comes disappointment when you realize you cant win much and if I am going to play just for graphics and theme,then I will chose some application game which is free,I am not playing slots that pay peanuts but I did noticed many players who stickwith a same game for a long period.
The max.win here is 200x your bet sizeand it’s a shame for such a cool slot.

In order to get200x bet size you need to collect5 of a kind Black Bird wild which wont happen to meanytime soon.

These super cute birds will fly to the next wire with each spin you make. You probably came across the game with dropping symbols if you are passionate gambler,if not,you will see dropping symbols in this slot.

I never made any significant progress when playing and I decided to leave it to those who never try it or to those who love this game .

As for me,I will wait for something different before I even play Thuderckik slots.

I think it is about the time to see something new from Thunderckik and I wish to see different paytable with much more wining potential.

However,you will not regret if you decide to play this game and still,you could boost you balance a little bit.

Birds on a wire is one of my favorite game from Thunderkick software. This game has 17 paylines. I like birds animations when they are shocked by electricity.

I played this game a couple of session. I had bad and good run on it. Dropping symbols are main feature mode here. Birds symbols that you win gets replaced with new ones. This continues as long as there is a new win. Things gets better at high voltage multipliers. For each win on a drop, the multiplier increases for one level. Into main game you can get up to x5 multiplier.

The free spins game trigger after you get at least 3 bonus symbols at wires. You can get additional free spins during those free games if you receive bonus symbol. Each symbols give you 2 more free spins and you can get them up to 34. I think this is great, because one of this symbol appear very often on reels.The free spins have different multipliers. I love to see that there are x4, x8, x12 and x20 multipliers. This could provide great wins.

When I played my best result from free spins was around x60 bet. I like this game when higher multipliers are in the action. You can get big wins even if the game has only 17 paylines. I think I will play this game more in the future, I really like it. The animations after you hit big win is great and I had nice feeling about it. The graphics is good so as the sounds. I also like that you can set into options fast mode game. Sometimes I don't want to wait long time to see results.

I saw some nice videos at this game where player won big amount of money at free spins with this high multipliers. I recommend this game to all players to try it out.

Birds On a Wire it is slot game made by Thunderkick. It is another awesome game which I am love too. Actually if someone thinks that I love all Thunderkick games - it is not correct, I did not like at all some of their games. But birds on a wire is definitely in my 'always ready to play' list of slot games.

Game is very cute and looks awesome; I am giving huge thumbs up to Thunderkick for making this game looks such great. Symbols are very funny and drawn nice, also animation when birds hit by electric is quite nice. Of course it can be pity that symbols destroyed from electric.

There is 17 paylines, and it is another strange thing. Many Thunderkick games have unique amount of paylines. This is always made me happy, because I like to see something different from software’s. Gameplay is very simple and similar to any other game with avalanche system, like gonzo quest for example.

During normal play there is multipliers, up to x5, not so big, I know, but with 5 wilds paying x 200 you always can keep your eyes open and pray for 1000 bets win. I never had decent wins during normal play, I had few 50 bets wins during it, but it was very rare wins.

Freespins is triggered when 3 or more special bonus symbol 'cats in box' appears anywhere on reels. You get 10 or more freespins, with multiplier starting from 4x, and up to 20x. It is possible have great hits, I had once more than 200 bets win, and once more than 100 bets wins. Usually feature pay unfortunately not so good. Also there is special infinity feature. After you played all your freespins you will then have another one, and you will spin until you will have winning spin.

It is not my favorite game by Thunderkick, because it pays less for me than others, I rate it with 8 stars.


I did not like low payouts during normal play.

I did not like that sometimes feature seems impossible to trigger. You waiting, waiting, waiting, and then zero on balance.

Birds on a wire is a Thunderkick provided slot game with 5 reels and 17 paylines and a free spins bonus round. I've played this game a few times but I never stop being surprised to see there 17 paylines, that is an odd number. That being said, the payline amount doesn't change anything in betting options because the minimum bet per spin is 0.10€. I really like slots where I can play on all lines and bet so little, it is great if my balance is low.

First of all, the design of this slot is really outstanding, something I haven't seen before. Since the name is Birds on a wire, when you open this slot, that is exactly what you see- different kind of birds sitting on a wire. There is one thing that I don't like that much though, when there is a winning combination from leftmost to right, the birds get electrocuted, then they disappear and new and existing symbols come in their places. If then you still get a winning combination, it will be multiplied 2 x and this continues as long as there is a new win and the max multiplier is 5 x. There's also a wild symbol on main and free spins game and it substitutes all except scatter symbols.

I like that the free spins round is the same as main game, the only thing that changes are multiplier for winnings. So to trigger free spins you need to get 3 cats in bags (scatters) which gives 10 free spins and if there are more, you get for each scatter extra two spins. I believe I haven’t got more than 16 free spins so far. When you play free spins, they look exactly the same, but when you get a winning combination, the multiplier starts from 4 x and if the wins continues, it can go up to 20 x. Also, after the free spins round is done, there’s an infinity spin so you'll spin until you win! This feature actually helped me to get a nice winning last time I played it, I had a big win on the infinity spin.

I know there's a fellow AskGambler that has had good winnings on this slot and that inspires me to play this game more. That being said, from my experience, I think I've never had a bigger win than 80 x bet size. Unfortunately, most of the time this game awards me with peanut winnings, endless dead spins and so on.

Overall I think this game is one of a kind, design is cute and special. But so far I wouldn't except major winnings from this game. But on the other hand, I haven't lost much either because I mostly don't go over 0.20 - 0.50€ bets. But it is definitely worth trying.

Birds on a Wire is one of the better Thunderkick games I’ve played. If a video slot has a good paytable and high multipliers, then it usually means I’m game! Well, Birds on a Wire even offers a bit more than just that. The theme focuses on several fluffy birds centered on a electricity wire high in the sky.

Let’s just hope they don’t get struck by an electric shock sooner or later. The birds come in different colors and each one of them resembles a different type of bird. However, I do have difficulties recognizing which birds they are. Some look like owls, some like chicken and so on.

The video slot Birds on a Wire contains 5-reels, 3-rows and 17-paylines. The game can be played for 10 cent bets. I played this game on 2 euro bets few months ago. I wasn’t too sure what to expect since the game took off slowly for me.

On the side of reels there is a multiplier which goes up after each consecutive win from 1x, 2x, 3x to 5x. After every winning combination, the symbols involved in the win disappear and new symbols return in place in order to achieve another win.

There are also wilds (black bird) and scatters (cat in the bag). You need at least 3 scatters or more to trigger 10 free spins. For every additional scatter you get 2 extra spins, so basically 34 spins can be won as the maximum.

I never won more than 10 free spins though, but that doesn’t really matter. My base game wins were terrible to be honest. Hundreds of spins and yet I couldn’t advance to have any progress. Lost around 120 euros in base game but when I started to regret playing this game, the free spins finally showed up.

During free spins mode there is an even higher multiplier in place going from 4x, 8x, 16x to 20x. The best combo possible would be a 5oak of wilds which pays 200x bet. So potentially you can win 4,000x your bet in free spins with the highest multiplier.

I didn’t get that but did have some good 5oak combos with the 20x multiplier. It resulted in me winning over 620 euros (310x bet). At the end of free spins you also get the famous “Inwinity Spin”. The reels then keep spinning until you have a win.

Overall my results were great and I will definitely play this game again despite my slow start.

Birds on a Wire is a very special game in some ways and perhaps it can be divisive. To be honest I don’t really like how the slot looks like. I’m not a big fan of slot made in cartoon style and even though some of the used bird characters are cute or funny but somehow this product just can’t impress or attract me at all with its appearance. But I like how the game uses an uncommon displaying scheme as it doesn’t work with the traditional reels and spins but much more we can see wires where the birds are just sitting on and after every spin new wires appear and the birds are flying on them.
It’s really a new displaying approach and its curiosity is really like a fresh change after spending so many times with traditionally working machine.

This innovative or just not too ordinary solutions continuous at game segment and we can meet some strange but great features there too. First, if a winning combination is completed the winning symbol birds suffer an electric shock and they’re replaced by the figures above them and also new symbols arrive to the reels. Basically, this is a classic ‘drop down symbol’ feature but it’s so funny and great that I really appreciate these little animations. The other little feature is called High Voltage Multiplier which means if with newcomer symbols another win is achieved its multiplier is increased by 1 so getting consecutive wins the multiplier becomes higher and higher up to x5.

The best paying symbol is the Wild which is not just replacing for other symbols in wins but it can pay up to 200 times of total bet if 5 of them form a combination. 3 or more Bonus icons on the reels activate 10 free spins where all drop-down wins uses an increased High Voltage multiplier value which can be x4, x8, x12 or even x20. If I’m asked I would prefer a traditional used multiplier method for wins but a better paying combination with x8 and x12 multiplier would cause a really great surprise. After the free spin sequence is ended the Inwinity Spin feature is activated meaning the feature is continuing until at least one new win is completed.

I think this product’s main strength is in its curiosity and uncommon working formula which really makes the game unique and a very interesting game. Otherwise, its payout tendency is very average as I haven’t experienced in any unwonted mechanism there but in my opinion the general payout ability could be a little bit better and the lack of potential of giving out real remarkable amounts as wins is also noticeable. So I really admire the new things the game brings to the table and offers some kind of new experience on the other hand I don’t like its displaying style and the game functions also could be better, more player-friendly. This duality feeling is always with me when I play this slot and whether which one will be more dominated is the question that remains to be decided.

Thunderkick has a knack for putting out very enjoyable and entertaining games, for which Birds on a Wire is one of them. The theme of the game is to electrocute the birds on the wire to get cash rewards. What?! Oh gees! I was quite shocked at first when I learned about the theme of the game. How dreadful, how horrible, how cruel to the birds, I was thinking, but thank god everything turned out differently when I started playing the game. The icons of the birds are symbolic, so they don’t really look like real birds. I haven’t seen a triangular bird in all of my life, that’s for sure! Haha. Anyhow, Birds on a Wire is nicely presented in simple cartoonish animated 3D, with pleasing colours, animations and sound effects. Despite not being like other 3D games, I love its overall graphics quality and sound effects, so no star down/up.

A look at the paytable brings no surprise. Typically of all Thunderkick games, win values for all symbols are on the low side, except for the Black Bird Wild symbol, which pays 200 x bet for 5-of-a-kind. The next highest paying bird, the Woodpecker, pays a very low 12 x bet. All other symbols pay even lower in this 17 paylines game. Each win in the base game increases the win multiplier by x 1, up to a maximum of x 5. However, in the Bonus Game, things can become really high voltage electrifying as the win multiplier increases to a maximum of x 20. And here lies those big wins, if you can get them. 1 star down.

Feature wise, there is only a High Voltage Bonus Game (free spins) to be won, triggered by 3 cleverly disguised cats under a hood, awarding 10 free spins. Every additional cat-under-a-hood awards 2 more free spins, up to a maximum of 34 free spins. Just imagine that - not only can these cats disguise themselves as birds hiding under a hood (so that they don’t scare the other birds away), they can actually fly like the birds too! The things that cartoon can do! But crazy or not, as foolish as everything may be, I just love it! Hehe. The Bonus Game, with its x 20 win multiplier, should be able to deliver really big wins, but this has yet to be seen, so 1 star down.

So, how does Birds on a Wire perform? Pardon me, but I can’t help myself giggling every time I look at those birds being electrocuted! Have you seen them yet? They go real crazy, humping up and down on the wire, moaning and groaning bird-style at the same time, then pruuuuit…and they are gone! Vaporised into thin air. Poor birds, but so entertaining! Coming back, how do the game perform? After many many many plays on it, the best win I’ve got so far was 204 x bet, winning 20.40 Euro on a 0.10 Euro bet. Haven’t got or seen anything better. Yes, that win came with the x 20 multiplier. Wonder if more winning spins can be had while on that x 20 multiplier? That could surely pay out a whopper! Yet to be seen and heard. Other than that, the game can really go crazy! Like over 20 spins not paying anything at all, paying peanuts when it does pay, and stretching on for well over 1000 spins before paying out anything decent. This is Thunderkick’s equivalent of the game ‘Dead or Alive’! But Birds on a Wire does not have the slightest potential to pay humongously like what Dead or Alive can! Still, this game can keep you happy and entertained when it is in a good mood, getting decent payouts and getting several Bonus Games as well. For me, yes, I like this game, and I still play it on and off, hoping to get a huge win for once one of these days. 1 star down.

I took a break from gambling over the summer for less than 2 months and now I notice that in all this time many new games belonging to as many new casino platforms have appeared here at AskGamblers. So far I have never played any game from Thunderkick casinos and if all its slots are like this “Birds on a wire” slot, I can say that certainly I will never risk here my money that I have earned with so much effort.

For a first look and as regarding how it is played, the slot “Birds on a Wire” is very nice, but in terms of wins it provides this game is disastrous. At each spin, a flock of different birds fly from somewhere behind and sit randomly on 3 high voltage lines (like about all video slots having 3 lines over 5 reels). When you get to have a line of at least 3 identical birds, they are electrocuted, turned into ashes and in their place come other birds in flight from behind. At each win, a multiplier found on a transformer on the high voltage pillar is advanced. The characters depicting different birds are beautiful and make this slot resemble with the well known “Angry Birds”. All is nice and well so far, but this slot could have been very successful if also the wins would have been also good.

For its 17 paylines available, the total minimum bet is 10 cents. Of the 7 kinds of birds, 5 pay only 1-4 cents (3 of a kind), and you get such a win only about once every 10 spins. 4 birds of the same kind you have only about once every 100 spins! Two consecutive wins from the same spin are likely rare, and for what good when the amount won is less than 10 cents. For each 100 spins played with a bet of 10 cents the lost is 8-9 Euros! And just to emphasize all this, the value of a “Big Win” is only 1 Euro! Rather than playing here and continually lose money, I better get out on the street and give the money to the poor. Finally, about Free spins the same warning: although theoretically they exist, you will never get them.

So much for this new slot from a casino also new. To say on short: a disaster!
