Good Feathers Slot Review – Blueprint
BluePrint are working on a lot of new slots for 2019. We recently reviewed the Temple Of Treasure Megaways which is a great volatile slot but has no unique features. There were sneak peeks of their new release late last year, but I have finally been able to try the slot out for myself and am very surprised. Their next version is called ‘Good Feathers‘ and is being released worldwide on all sites on February 19th. Let’s take a deeper dive in our Good Feathers slot review.
The slot has a unique theme of Mobsters but represented by birds instead. The artwork is cartoonish but has some good detail; the slot has some great sound effects and voices for the birds when they pop up for features to match the theme well. The background has many tall buildings and some trees which is basic, but the focus on the screen is the slot and the badges on the left.
It has a setup of 5 reels by three rows which includes 20 pay lines and cascading symbols. This feature is seen on a lot of Big Time Gaming releases when symbols are part of a winning payline they will be destroyed, and new symbols will fall into their place on the reels; this can occur many times until no more wins occur. This slot is action-packed with many random base game features and different bonus features which we will go into more detail on. The max win is a staggering 10,000x/£250,000 and the RTP ranges from 92.45% – 96.32%.
Good Feathers Slot Review Base Game Features
In the base game, you will benefit from 3 different features, randomly after a spin a bird will pop up at the bottom of the slot and stand up if you are given a chance at a feature. You will need to pick 1 of 3 eggs that appear on the slot. Just like the feature on previous release ‘Goonies’ but with three keys instead. You can choose 1 of 3 different features which include;
- Stork Wilds – 1 or more fully stacked wild will appear on reels, lights at the top of each reel will flick on and off to tease which reels will turn wild.
- FlyBy Wilds – A bird will appear and fly across the reel while shooting symbols. Any symbols shot will turn wild.
- Egg Bomb – A bomb will explode destroying all symbols on the reels and a new set of symbols will drop.
Good Feathers Slot Review Symbols & Paytable
The slot has nine symbols in total which includes, 4 low paying symbols represented by knives, guns and two mugshot pictures. All these flat paying symbols are in black and white. There are also 4 high paying symbols represented by different bird characters; the highest paying is the bird wearing a suit with a cigar in his beak and paying 25x for 5 across a pay line. There is also a wild symbol which usually appears on reels and in some features. There is no scatter symbol in this slot as it is not needed to trigger the free spins feature.
Good Feathers Slot Review Bonus Features
To activate the bonus feature you need four wins in a row during one spin, your progress of wins can be shown on the left of the slot on the sheriff badges up to the FBI badge which lights up for each win. You are asked to pick 1 of 5 location pictures on the police board; this will reveal 1 of 5 different features, if you do not choose the top feature you can gamble for the chance at the next feature up, but you risk losing your bonus and instead of receiving a mystery win. The features are all very different and some more volatile than others.

Good Feathers Slot Review Conclusion
Overall, I had a lot of fun trying this slot out. Blueprint did an excellent job producing this new release. It has a unique theme with lots of action due to all the features in both base and bonus. The slot does remind me of past versions like The Goonies, but it plays very differently. There is some big volatility with a max win of 10,000x and highly recommend you try it out for yourself 19th February. Be sure to check out the YouTube video below to see all feature in action.
