The Great Chicken Escape bonus features
High walls, barbed wire and some unpleasant looking guard dogs set the scene for the action in The Great Chicken Escape. On the reels, we can see the A, K, Q and J royal card suits as the lower value symbols.
Four chicken character symbols make up the high-value end of the paytable, with the one wearing a green beret awarding up to 15 times the stake for 5 on a payline. Only the game logo symbol is more lucrative, awarding up to 25 times the stake.
The rooster character symbol acts as the Wild. It can substitute for all other symbols except the bonus Scatter and rewards with 25 times the stake for five on a payline.
Random base game features
One of the main online slots tips to use during the base game, one of three random features can be activated:
- Chicken Run Wilds – Between 2 and 4 reels will transform into fully stacked Wild reels
- Guard Dog Wilds – Between 4 and 9 extra Wilds will be added in random positions on the reels after the guard dog is knocked out
- Care Package – A box is airdropped onto the reels, adding stacked golden egg symbols in random positions. At the end of the spin, the eggs will transform into identical symbols, which can be of any value except for Wilds or Scatters
The map symbol acts as the Scatter. Landing 3 or 4 of these on the same spin will activate one random selection from the following bonus features:
- Secret Tunnel – The player gets a choice of three chests, which will contain either a cash prize, the option to collect, which ends this feature, or the Mystery Tunnel. If the Mystery Tunnel appears, the player chooses one of four tunnel entrances, each of which lead to the four other features listed below
- Poultry in Motion – The player selects from the eggs on the screen to reveal how many steps to advance on the multiplier trail. If ‘Collect’ appears, the feature ends. At the end of the trail lies access to the Big Money Bonus feature.
- Great Escape Big Money Bonus feature – 12 barrels are arranged in a carousel, each containing a cash prize ranging from x10 to x500 the stake. The player selects a golden egg, which can reveal either a respin or Collect, which ends the feature.
The Great Chicken Escape Free Spins
There are two free spins bonus features that can be activated by landing three or more Scatter symbols. These are:
- To the Other Side free spins – Activates with 9 spins, Wilds can land on any reel and are then collected. A 10th free spin is awarded and all the collected Wilds are added onto the game screen at random
- Get Clucky free spins – Activates with 10 free spins, a slightly different Wanted Wild symbol can appear at random on each spin. These boost the multiplier by x1 each time they appear.
