ALL ABOUT GOOD FEATHERS SLOT REVIEW
So Blueprint have taken a break from milking the Megaways™ money cow to bring us this feature-packed mobster slot with a little nod to Scorcese’s awesome 1990 mafia movie.
Good Feathers has the same cartoon feel as games like NetEnt’s Jack Hammer, and utilizes cascading wins and a nice progressive trigger mechanic to set up the big money bonus features that come after the base game. This is a Blueprint slot alright and if you like their stuff you’ll love Good Feathers. The variance is medium high and it has the potential to hit payout of up to 10,000x for some lucky punter.
Let’s find out more.
Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
Good Feathers is set in mobster-era New York – think 1930s, violin cases stuffed with machines guns, and 1stgeneration Italian-Americans packing pistols in their pockets and wearing caps and braces.
There are 5 reels and 3 rows with 20 paylines to land identical symbols on. There are 4 low values ones – a pistol, a knife and 2 black and white mafia birds with guns. Then there are more Mafioso characters in the premium level, including a black-feathered one, a dame, and (of course) the Birdfather himself with his fat cigar, looking like Brando in the Godfather. Both he, and the wild will pay out 25x for five on a payline.
This is a cascading wins game – after each winning spin, winning symbols are removed to be replaced with new ones. The process repeats until no more wins are created.
Good Feathers Features
Fair to say there is no shortage of feature action here, starting with the random Birdfather bonuses to be triggered at random in the base game. There are three:
Fly By Wilds: Look out for the assassin mobster flying across the screen, shooting down symbols as he goes and transforming them into wilds.
Egg Bombs: Eggs are thrown onto the reels, causing explosions and resetting the reels with a GUARANTEED WIN.
Stork Wilds: A stack of wilds lands on the reels.
Briefing Room Bonus Features
Beyond the base game is the Briefing Room bonus feature. To trigger this you will need to land 4 consecutive wins – after each winning spin, a meter to the left of the reels lights up with another FBI badge. Once you have 4 lit you will receive one of five features. If you don’t like what you get it is possible to gamble for a different one.
Prison Escape Bonus: Release the mobster birds from their prison cells by picking doors. Each one reveals a cash prize. If you land a poster you’ll move up a level for bigger prizes, if you land a siren, the games up!
Warehouse Bonus: Take your pick of the suitcases on offer to reveal a cash prize. Take the prize of gamble for another suitcase and maybe a better offer.
Scarbird Free Spins: Get 5 free spins on an enhanced reel set, with extra wilds. Comes with a collect feature at the end – pick from the suitcases to reveal a free spins re-trigger or the end of the round.
Infeathergration Free Spins: Get 8 free spins with enhanced reels with stacked wilds on them. Pick from two playing cards at the end to reveal either Good Cop and a re-trigger, or Bad Cop and the end of the game.
Crime Scene Free Spins:Here’s the big one – 10 free spins with a progressive multiplier of up to 20x. Land FBI badges for an extra 3 free spins.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
This is a pretty awesome slot all round. We love a good game packed with features and that’s exactly what you get here. So, despite the relatively high variance there’s a lot going on and rarely a dull moment. The big wins are locked into the free spins features in the Briefing Room bonus rounds so keep an eye on that FBI badge meter in the base game and aim for 4 consecutive wins to trigger the enhanced reel sets.
