Who hasn’t played Angry Birds at least once? Aristocrat is betting that you have not only played it but also loved it enough to enjoy its bird-themed Yardbirds pokie. You have to love this Australian company for the sheer innovation in its games, and this one is no exception. Let’s get down to the farmyard and see what Yardbirds has to offer. Read our full review below.
Imagine the animated movie Chicken Run transferred to an old-school three by three pokie machine grid and you have Aristocrat's Yardbirds. Bright, cartoony and a lot of fun, the top paytable symbols all stick to the farmyard theme, with a chick, rooster, weather vane and sly old fox providing some of the biggest paying symbols. There is also a whole farmyard full of chickens and a free spins symbol that does just what it says on the tin and rewards you with plenty of bonus games.
Yardbirds is packed full of features, perhaps because the developers felt basic gameplay with a bunch of chickens might be just a little boring. Whatever the rationale, this pokie is unexpectedly feature-rich, with three great bonus games to build your payouts.
Foxy free spins
On most farms you would be reaching for the shotgun if you saw a fox, but not in Yardbirds. Here he is the bearer of a fantastic fox free spin bonus, whereby the fox is wild and ready to deliver you bigger and bigger bonuses.
Which came first?
The chicken and the egg bonus might not answer this question, but it will help you to pick and win your way to big prizes. Collect three or more bonus symbols and you will be whisked to this bonus game during which you need to outwit the cunning Mr Fox. You will each take turns in choosing an egg, revealing some great prizes. Just hope Mr Fox doesn’t eat all the best ones!
Mystery hatch bonus
There are plenty of opportunities to have fun, win big and add to your payout with this bonus game.
The bright and cartoony look of this game is just as great when you play the mobile version as it is played on your desktop. Optimised for iOS and Android, you can enjoy Yardbirds on your tablet or smartphone when you are out and about - even in the farmyard!
Smashing time or egg on your face?
Yardbirds is a typically quirky game from this Australian developer that likes to do things differently. This is a really fun game thanks to the old-school and easy-to-learn three by three grid, the well above average animations and graphics, and some great bonus features that can really help you to achieve big wins. The chicken and egg bonus is what this game is all about and is the most rewarding feature in a game that is really feature packed. You may not expect much from an Angry Birds-style pokie; however, once you start spinning, this is definitely one to file under ‘guilty pleasures’ along with many of our other games.
