Fodselsdagen

Fodselsdagen (written fødselsdagen in Danish) is Danish for birthday, so it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out just what this video slot is all about.

Fodselsdagen will be one of Scandinavian online casino software provider Play ‘n Go’s newest slots, when it is released this autumn.

The game is playable in English, so even though it is about a Danish birthday, it is open to everybody, no matter where in the world they reside, or – within reason –  whatever language they speak.

Developers

Play ‘n Go have decided to be as basic as possible with the graphics in the Fodselsdagen slot. The imagery is really basic, and we mean incredibly basic.

Various numbers appear as icons on the reels of this game, as do gifts, cakes, and musical instruments. It is unlike Play ‘n Go to be so primitive with their graphics, but at the end of the day, sometimes simpler is better.

The special features are also rather primitive. Slots with basic graphics and features don’t tend to have a wide appeal, and with a theme as niche as this one is, Play ‘n Go have taken a risk, which is unlike them. We can only hope they know what they are doing. Fodselsdagen Slot Machine big screenshot

How to play

Play ‘n Go have chosen to give you complete control of your bets. Players can adjust the value of their coins, the number of coins they stake per line, and the number of lines.

Why you would want to adjust any of the slot’s 20 lines is a mystery, though. Without a surplus of features, you will be relying on those paylines to bag wins more than ever.

The menu bar fits with the colour of the slot’s design, but it doesn’t really push the theme of the game along, save for the spin button being a birthday cake. Ultimately, you are going to be wagering between 1p per line, per spin on this slot, and £200 per spin.

Features

Wild symbols: A birthday cake icon acts as a your wild. As usual, wild symbols can replace all other symbols in the video slot, but they cannot substitute for scatter icons, or bonus icons. The nifty thing about wilds is that they are the best paying icons in the slot.

Scatter icons and free spins: Keep an eye out for those musical instruments, since they are the scatter icons in this game.

Scattered wins worth 2x, 3x, 30, or 200x your total bet can be won with 2, 3, 4 or 5 such symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. Three or more such symbols will also trigger a free spins feature. The more scatter icons you locate on the reels of this game, the more free spins you will start the bonus feature with.

Bonus round: Another bonus feature has been included in this video slot, and in order to trigger it, players need to land 3 or more of the bonus icons.

They take on the shape of balloons and Danish flags. Once the bonus round begins, players will be met with a very simplistic click and win bonus feature. It’s a really simple affair – pick and present and win. This instant win game should see you pocket a rather nice cash prize for your efforts.

Maximum Payouts

Wild symbols are worth the most when they appear on a payline. Ideally, you will want to land 5 of them on any active payline, in order to bag a win worth 2,000 coins. Landing 4 or even just 3 of them will still see you win 500 coins, and 50 coins, though.

Summary

Let’s get straight to business here. Fodselsdagen’s graphics are satisfactory, its special features are elementary at best, and its wins are fair but not exactly lavish.

What you have here is a niche themed slot, and one which probably won’t become very popular amongst players across the globe, but will do fairly well in Denmark. Well, it would, if Danish gambling laws were a little less strict.

Given that they are not exactly lax; you have to wonder for whom Play ‘n Go developed this slot? Danish expats, perhaps? To summarize, the slot is fine for a quick mess around, but serious slot players who want a lot of action might do well to give it a miss.
