Head to a chicken camp

Set on a chicken camp, it has cartoon graphics. With A, K, Q and J card suits on the reels, you will also see 4 chickens. The sergeant chicken is the most rewarding giving you 1, 5 or 15 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. Charlie (the main chicken) is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols bar the Bonus scatter – 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 0.1, 2, 10 or 25 times your stake respectively.

Random spin features

The Great Chicken Escape comes with random spin features – during a base game spin, you can benefit from the following:

  • Guard Dog Wilds feature - a random number of dog wilds (between 4 and 9) will be added in random positions.
  • Chicken Run Wilds feature – 2 to 4 reels can randomly transform into fully stacked wilds (wild reels). This can happen on any reels.
  • Care Package feature – stacked golden eggs are added to the reels. Once the spin finishes, all stacked golden eggs will transform into a random symbol (bar the map bonus scatter or the wild).

Random bonus features

The map is the bonus scatter – hit 3 or 4 to trigger a random bonus feature. With 5 to play, here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Secret Tunnel Bonus feature – with 3 chests on the screen, you choose 1 of them to reveal a cash prize, Mystery Tunnel or collect (which ends the feature). If you reveal a Mystery Tunnel, you then choose 1 of 4 tunnel entrances – 1 of them will give you access to 1 of the other 4 bonus features (described below).
  • Poultry in Motion feature – with 22 points, each of them has a potential money prize. You choose 1 of the 5 golden eggs to win 1 to 5 steps or collect. The aim is to advance as many steps as possible – if you reach the end, you will enter The Great Escape Big Money Bonus feature.
  • Get Clucky Free Spins feature – with 10 free spins awarded, a new wanted wild symbol is in play. These wilds can randomly appear on each free spin and increases the multiplier by 1 each time.
  • To The Other Side Free Spins feature – with 9 free spins awarded, the wild can hit randomly on all reels. These wilds are then collected. You then get a 10th free spin with all collected wilds added back onto the reels.
  • The Great Escape Big Money Bonus feature – you will see a carousal of 12 barrels, each containing a cash prize. You then select 1 or more golden eggs to get more spins or collect. The most lucrative barrel contains 500 times your stake.

With each of the main bonus features, you can gamble to try and get a better and more lucrative bonus feature. If you fail, you’ll win a consolation cash prize.

High variance

The Great Chicken Escape is definitely entertaining – with a total of 8 bonus features, you may think this slot is low to medium variance. On the contrary, it’s highly volatile! The biggest wins will come from the Get Clucky Free Spins feature as the increasing multiplier can lead to huge wins. With a 10x multiplier for example, you could win 5,000 times your stake on each free spin.

If you like big win potential, Pragmatic Play have plenty of slots to choose – including Pirate Gold and The Dog House.
