Tillykke med fødselsdagen. If you’re not Danish you probably won’t understand what we just wrote, so let’s put it in plain English: ”Happy Birthday!”. This is a phrase you’ve heard many times so far and we hope you get to hear it many times more in the years to come.
Fodselsdagen is a video pokie game wishing you a happy birthday anytime you see the reels of the game. So even if everyone else forgets to wish you a happy birthday come on to Fodselsdagen and you’ll get a genuine birthday party.
Who knows you might even walk away with a great birtday present in the form of cash balance in the end. We don’t know why the designers decided to go with a Danish tone for this game.
Maybe one of the designers is Danish and his birthday was an inspiration for Fodselsdagen or it is simply a game targeted for the Danish market.
Either way Fodselsdagen is fun to play with cartoon like symbols, great animations and happy cheering sounds in the background. You will even get a happy birthday song if you manage to trigger one of the bonus features in the game.
Fodselsdagen is Play N’ Go’s way of wishing you a happy birthday. This is the latest game to join their collection and it is a bit different from we got accustomed to see lately from this provider.
With Fodselsdagen the designers decided to go in a different manner than with their earlier pokies and it’s refreshing to see something out of the ordinary in their collection.
How to Play
For Fodselsdagen the designers decided to use 20 pay lines, 5 reels and 3 rows, opposite of their almost standard 10 pay line pokies.
What’s interesting to see here is that the pay line number can actually be adjusted from 1 to 20, so if you like experimenting you can play with a lower number of active pay lines.
The bet size with all 20 pay lines active can go from $0.20 to $100 per spin and is adjusted by using the Coins and Coin Size buttons. Players can also use the Auto Play option and set it to a maximum of 50 auto spins.
No birthday is allowed to go without a big birthday party and on the reels of Fodselsdagen the party begins by triggering one of the bonus features. There are two bonus features that can be triggered, a pick and win bonus and a free spins feature.
The pick bonus in Fodselsdagen is triggered when 3 or more bonus symbols (Balloons) land anywhere on the reels. In this feature you get to pick 3, 4 or 5 items from the pile of presents, depending if the bonus is triggered with 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols. Each present will award a prize multiplied by the total bet, starting from x2 to x25.
The free spins bonus round in Fodselsdagen is triggered when 3, 4 or 5 scatters (Musical Instruments) land anywhere on the reels. The player will be awarded with 15, 20 or 25 free spins accordingly, without a chance for a re-trigger to happen.
There is no classic multiplier added to the free spins payouts, instead the Scatter symbol will act as an extra wild during the free spins. Since he lands on the reels fairly often players have a chance to land some decent payouts in the free spins bonus round.
The highest payouts in Fodselsdagen can come from the scatter and wild symbols. The scatter has a maximum payout of 300 x total bet for 5 of them on the reels, while the wild has a 250 x total bet payout for 5 of a kind wins.
Fodselsdagen seems like a low to mid variance video pokie game, with a range of maximum possible payouts up to around 500 x total bet.
Well it’s not our birthday yet, but we’re happy to see a birthday present from Play N’ Go in the form of Fodselsdagen. It’s a nice little pokie game with a low variance and some decent medium payouts during the bonus rounds.
It doesn’t seem like it has much to offer at first sight, but the free spins bonus with the extra wild symbol can produce some decent payouts. It may not make you a rich man but can help in making your birthday happier.
