The Great Chicken Escape Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play is one studio known for using a lot of different and more obscure themes compared to other studios. While also reusing popular themes such as Asian-inspired themes very frequently. Today we look back to 2019 to learn about a very underrated and exciting slot release. Today we learn all about ‘The Great Chicken Escape‘, originally released 26th July 2019 across all sites.
As stated in the title this slot is about chickens escaping, something new but very strange for a slot theme. Well, the inspiration could be from the classic kid’s movie ‘Chicken Run‘. In the background, you can see the chicken’s huts and homes. The background has good detail and is a different art style compared to other games. The game background is dull within the colour scheme, the reel set shows off the vibrancy within the symbols art style.
The Great Chicken Escape has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This game is medium volatility due to the capped max win of 5,000x and set RTP of 96.5%. You can bet from £0.10-£100.
The Great Chicken Escape Pay Table & Symbols
This slot has 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K And A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by 4 different chicken characters and a logo symbol. There is also a chicken wild and bonus map scatter symbol. The most valuable symbol is the logo symbol, which pays 25x for 5 across a pay line.
The Great Chicken Escape Features
In the base game, there are 3 different randomly triggered features. Special reels are in play for these and these features are;
- Guard Dog Wilds – 4-9 guard dog wilds are added to random symbol positions.
- Chicken Run Wilds – 2-4 reels will be transformed into fully stacked wild symbols.
- Care Package – Stacked golden eggs are added to the reel set. At the end of the spin all eggs which land at the end of the spin hatch into wilds.
There are 5 different bonuses on offer, which you can either claim or gamble for another feature. The bonus feature is activated by landing 3 or more scatter symbols, land 5 scatters to automatically land the best feature out of the 5,
Secret Tunnel Bonus – Three chests will appear, select one to reveal a random coin reward, collect or mystery tunnel. If a mystery tunnel is chosen, 4 different tunnels will appear and you will need to choose one of them. These can reveal one of the four other features.
Poultry In motion – Pick golden eggs to reveal numbers to advance along a multiplier trail. If you reveal a collect the feature will end and your bet is multiplied by the multiplier you ended on. If you reach the end of this trail the big money bonus will begin.
Get Clucky Free Spins – 10 Free Spins, on every spin wild, can be randomly placed on the reel set. Each wild that hits will increase the multiplier from 1x.
To The Other Side Free Spins – 9 Free Spins, all wild symbols are collected and added to the reel set on the 10th the last spin.
The Great Escape Big Money Bonus – 12 barrels are shown, each has a money reward. The barrels will spin and the barrel it lands on will reveal. After each spin pick from golden eggs to carry on or collect.
Overall, this game does remind me of many different Blueprint gaming releases. This is due to the array of features. Especially the feature gamble/collect mechanic. It seems Pragmatic Play are trying new things, however, another provider is already well known for this concept. These game foes have potential with a max win of 5,000x.
