Anyone who remembers Nick Park’s animated comedy Chicken Run will certainly see some similarities in this online slot from Pragmatic Play – it’s called The Great Chicken Escape and it tells the tale of poulrty trying to escape from the farm before the inevitable happens – read all about it here.
The Great Chicken Escape is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines and it’s the muddy farmyard from which our heroes are trying to escape which forms the backdrop to the gameplay.
The game’s logo and four chicken characters from this story represent the high value symbols while J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
Charlie, the chicken with the red hat is wild and he’ll replace all standard symbols to help form winning combos; the escape plan is the bonus symbol.
The following mini-features can occur at any time in the base game:
- Guard Dog Wilds – between four and nine wild dofs are added in view.
- Chicken Run Wilds – two to four reels turn completely wild.
- Care Package – golden eggs are added to the reels which all transform into matching symbols when the spin stops.
This is triggered by landing three or four of the bonus symbols anywhere in view for a randomly selected feature or five for the Big Money bonus:
- Secret Tunnel – pick a chest to reveal a prize amount or uncover the Mystery Tunnel which will trigger one of the other features.
- Poultry In Motion – pick golden eggs to work your way along a map, collecting prizes along the way until you reach the end or find ‘Collect’.
- Get Clucky Free Spins – awards ten free spins with an extra wild in play which increases the win multiplier by 1x each time it lands.
- To The Other Side – awards ten free spins with each wild symbol collected and stored on the right hand side; on the final spin all the wilds are returned to the reels in random positions.
- Big Money Bonus – spinning barrels are awarded randomly and you can collect the prizes they award until ‘Collect’ is found.
Before the feature starts it’s possible to gamble for a better one (the list above is theoretically more valuable from bottom to top) but you could end up with a worse one also.
Pragmatic Play may or may not have got their inspiration from Chicken Run but that doesn’t really matter because it’s all good fun and designed to a high and amusing standard; there are loads of bonus features to aim for and some big wins available for the luckier players.
