Get ready for a tweeting concert on the slot from Just For The Win powered by Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. The cute birds will surprise you with double symbols, random wilds and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 2,522 times your stake.
Tweet Hearts is a video slot from Microgaming / Just For The Win with five reels, three rows and 17 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you can bet from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.08%.
Expect to see cartoon-style graphics evolving around tweeting parrots, owls and other birds when you load the game. A simple blue sky background puts the ivy-ornamented reel set into the centre of the attention. A summer soundtrack tries to keep things lively and is oddly interrupted by occasional owl cries and naturally by the usual reel and win count noises.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from J through to A, awarding 0.8x your stake for a single five of a kind and 50x for a 10-of-a-kind. They are followed by green, purple and red birds as well as the Tweet Hearts slot logo as the top payer. Hit five on a line to win 1x to 3x your stake while a 10OAK will pay 100x to 300x your bet.
The game has no less than three different wild symbols – regular, double and lucky wilds – with the latter appearing in the free spins only. The pays for wild symbols are similar to the top symbol. All wilds will substitute for all regular pay symbols. A flowery icon with the words “Free Spins” acts as the scatter.
The most common feature you will be coming across in your gameplay are the Double Symbols. All pay symbols, including wilds and scatters, can appear as single or double symbols, providing the potential to hit wins with up to 10 of a kind. In the base game, only the symbols on the middle row will appear as double symbols. For example, matching double symbols on the middle row on reel one and two will award the pay for a four of a kind.
Watch out for the Random Wilds feature as it can trigger at the start of any spin in the base game. The screen will darken before two to six wild symbols to random positions on the reels for the current spin. These can be single or double wild symbols.
Landing five scatters, which can be a combination of single and double scatters, will award 10 free spins. Any further scatter on the same spin will add +1 free spin to the tally with the maximum set at 25 free spins. During the feature, any lucky wild symbol landing on the reels will also award +1 free spin.
The main twist though is that any position on row one or three where a lucky wild symbols lands will turn into a double symbol for the remaining free spins, permanently increasing the number of symbols appearing on that pay line and making it easier to hit a 10 of a kind.
While Just For The Win has not reinvented the wheel with this creation, Tweet Hearts looks at least more interesting to play than their other releases. Still, we have never been and never will be fans of cartoon-style designs as it appeals to young people who might not be of gambling age. Having said that, the game played quite well in our test runs and we scored some good 50x to 150x wins, nothing major but it kept us rolling for a long time.
