The majestic eagle, replicated in iconography across the world and remains one of the most spectacular creatures on the face of the planet.
All of which makes it the perfect choice for a top quality slot machine and with the Eagle Wings mobile slot, that is precisely what Microgaming have given us.
The mobile version of the slot was released in April 2014 and is a 5x3 reel slot which boasts 25 fixed paylines in play on every spin. You can play for as little as 0.01 coins per payline, up to a maximum coin value of 25. With the variations in coins in play on each reel, you can spin the reels for as little as 0.25 per spin, or as much as 31.25 per spin.
The game itself is very much along the lines of many other 25-payline 5-reel slots that Microgaming have released across the years, perhaps with the exception that this is a medium variance slot, although it does have a decent house edge of just 4 percent.
The first thing you will likely notice about the Eagle Wings mobile slot is how it looks. There's not just Eagles on the reels, but also a young Eagle chick, a leaping salmon, an eagle taking flight and of course, a head of an eagle.
These are the high symbols in the game and the playing card lows are also in evidence once again. It's fair to say that a game that could have inspired a rich tapestry of soundscapes to accompany it is somewhat lacking with it comes to the aural side of the slot.
The sound may be disappointing but visually the slot looks good and it also plays well with a number of interesting features to note.
The first of these is the in game Wild symbol which is represented by the Eagle Wings slot logo. What makes this Wild especially notable is that it is stacked across the reels and this does afford you some wins, which is especially useful at times when the slot hasn't been producing many.
The fact that the Wilds are stacked across the reels means that there is always a chance of landing a couple of wilds across the screen and greatly increasing your payout.
However the real feature that kicks up the action a notch on the Eagle Wings slot is the Scatter symbol. This is the Lucky Eagle Coin and although it awards a cash prize for landing two across the reels, the bigger bonuses come when you trigger three or more across the reels and enter the free spins bonus round.
The first stage is to pick one of the scatter symbols you have just landed to give you your random number of free spins. This can be any number of free spins up to a maximum of 60, though most of the time you will trigger between 15 and 20 free spins.
The good news is that any amount of free spins you trigger will come with a 3x multiplier, which can radically increase your winnings in the free spin rounds. If you can land a high number of scatters across the reels and pick wisely, you can earn a massive amount in the free spins round, giving you a fantastic return on your money.
However, it is worth noting that this is a game that doesn't really make sense for the smaller stakes gambler to play. You can go a long time in between racking up decent wins and a decent sized bankroll is likely a must for you to get the most out of this otherwise enjoyable and fun to play slot.
