These colourful birds might look cute, but we all know the truth; each and everyone of them must die!
Gamblers might be attracted to the Birds on a Wire mobile slot by the bright colourful graphics, pretty distinctive birds, and unusual reel set up.
But if you lack a sense of humour, you might want to try something a little less violent. Magicious by Thunderkick is very good, and has a more traditional theme.
For the rest of us, prepare for some electrified bird stew.
The theme of the Birds on a Wire game on mobile is pretty simple. You get 3 rows of 5 birds, sitting on electric cable wires, minding their own business. Because, we guess, when you are in the middle of a mass migration, you don’t look too closely at danger signs.
If you get 3 or more of the same birds on one of the 17 paylines, the birds are literally electrocuted, and disappear into a puff of feathers.
The sick, sadistic, child inside of us laughs every time. Especially when, on each successive win, the multiplier increases, from 1x to 5x. During the free spins this multiplier increases to a massive 20x.
Basically, it’s pure value for money, with little mini-goes on every win.
You’ll be forgiven, given the humour and pretty graphics, to think this is a low paying game. After all, it hits frequently, the free spins come at least once every 100 spins, and the RTP sits at an incredibly high and generous 97.2%.
And, of course, you’d be wrong.
There’s some blazing wins to be found here, and the fact that the Birds on a Wire slot machine lets you play for longer is a huge positive in our books.
It plays like a low variance game, but pays like a high variance one. You will still have to be careful with your budget, but we’ve hit wins of over 100 times our bet in the free spins often enough to know it’s very much worth your while.
One of our favourite Thunderkick slots; and not just because we love watching cute birds die in shocking ways.

Wilds: The big black bird is wild and replaces all other symbols except bonus.
Cascading Reels: Every time you get a win, the winning birds will explode and the remaining symbols will drop down on the reels. More symbols will then fly into the empty space, at no extra cost to you.
This gives you a chance at another win, and for every successive win you get, the multiplier increases from 1x to 2x, 3x and 5x.
It stays at 5x until no more wins are possible.
Scatter and Free Spins: The cats hiding underneath the paper bags are the scatter symbols. Get 3 anywhere on the reels and it's dinner tim... euh... free spins time!
The birds will fly to another set of wires, but this time the multipliers have increased starting at 4x, then 8x, 12x and finally 20x your bet.
We've calculated the top possible win here with the highest paying symbol as 4080 times your bet... in a single spin.
We love it when video slots approach the idea of theme and gameplay so it works seamlessly together.
Instead of a boring 5x3 reel set up, what you have here is a beautifully well thought out organic theme that isn't just cute; it's funny to boot.
But then what did we expect from the creators of the highly amusing Esqueleto Explosivo?
The Birds on a Wire mobile slot is more than just a pretty theme. With great return, frequent wins, and the occasional mind blowing multiplier, you'll want each and every one of these cute little avians to fry.
One word of advice however, make sure you try the Birds on a Wire in freeplay first when playing on iPad and Android tablets - sometimes the sounds doesn't come through, which is a real shame, as it ties in with the overall theme beautifully.
