Fodselsdagen is the latest video pokie game from Play N’ Go that we had a chance to test. This pokie came as a surprise since it wasn’t announced to be released soon as most of the new Play N’ Go pokies were. It just popped up live as a new pokie game from Play N’ Go so we had to see what the game was about.
We were confused by the game name at first because we had no idea what Fodselsdagen actually meant. After starting the game and some help of Google translate we learned that Fodselsdagen is actually happy birthday in Danish.
This is where the confusion and surprises become bigger as we have no idea why this game is primarily about Denmark. Play N’ Go is a company based in Sweden, but maybe one of the designers is Danish so his birthday was the inspiration for Fodselsdagen?
We don’t know, but we can see that the designers had a lot of fun with this game. The game variance is low, with generally low payouts during base play and in the bonus features, but it’s incredibly fun to play. It has 20 active pay lines which can be adjusted, with bets going from the minimum $0.20 to the maximum $100 per spin.
The symbols and reels are designed with a strong tone of red and white colors, with solid animations added. The background music really does remind us of a birthday party, with birthday songs and cheering from the guests.
The designers also added two bonus features to the game, a pick and win bonus and a free spins feature. They add a dose of excitement to the overall game play and can produce some decent payouts.
What We love
Well we like the game theme as everyone loves birthdays. Whether it’s your own or a friends, birthdays always mean lots of fun and a great chance to hang out.
We also like the colors and animations used, which make Fodselsdagen attractive to the eye. The bonus features are also interesting. We love the fact that there are two bonus rounds.
The pick and win bonus is understandably weaker in payouts, theoretically with a maximum payout of 125 x bet, if you trigger the bonus with the maximum 5 symbols and guess the highest paying 25x bet symbols 5 times in a row.
The free spins are also interesting as you can win 15, 20 or 25 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the reels. We like the fact that 5 scatters have a 300 x total bet payout and that the scatter also acts as an extra wild symbol during the free spins.
What we Do not Like
Well the symbol payouts are generally weak and the free spins bonus doesn’t have any multipliers attached. We also don’t like the fact that the free spins can’t be re-triggered.
Yes, Fodselsdagen is a game worth playing. It may not offer much in terms of big payouts and winnings, but the low variance means wins will come often.
The game theme is great so it’s a fun pokie to play. There are still 2 bonus features which add excitement and can still pay decently and quite frequently.
