Join our prisoners of the farm in this Pragmatic Play slot which contains three different modifiers and 5 fantastic bonus games. This eggscellent online slot is one of Pragmatic’s finest and you may even recognise the theme and characters from a little known film.
About The Great Chicken Escape
These chickens have a higher ambition than being a part of somebody's Sunday dinner and in this 5-reel, 20 payline casino game they have the chance to achieve exactly that. Players can aid our feathered friends by spinning the wild reels and making their way through the five bonus games and guiding them to freedom through Secret Tunnels or experiencing true Poultry in Motion. The Great Escape Big Money Bonus is the feature where players can win a maximum 5000x their stake if they continuously pick the correct golden eggs.
Graphically, this slot is impressive in a basic cartoon fashion, there’s nothing flashy but the basic set-up really allows the gameplay of this slot to stand out which, for a video slot with as many bonus features as The Great Chicken Escape, can only be good news. This is one of our most popular film-themed casino slots as this fantastic slot follows the theme of the popular movie - Chicken Run.
How to Play The Great Chicken Escape
How to Stake and Spin
If players are looking to set their stake they should click either the - or + button either side of the spin button on the bottom right. Players will then be given three options to change, these are Coins Per Line, Coin Value and Total Bet this can be changed to give players a maximum bet of £100 or a minimum bet of 0.20p
Once players are content with their stake amount, they can click the spin button in the middle to commence the spinning experience.
The Autoplay in this slot is one of the most in-depth on Slot Boss. Players can use the sliders to determine the number of Auto Spins the slot will play for them and they can also command the game to stop if players win or lose a certain amount.
There are also five unique options for players to select, these are The Turbo Spin, Quick Spin, Stop on Any Win, Stop if Feature is Won and the Skip Screens features.
The Great Chicken Escape - Wilds and Modifiers
Special Wild Symbols + Modifiers
This slot has two unique symbols that can count for wilds in this online slot, firstly the Guard Dog Wilds, where in order for our chickens to progress they must knock out the Guard Dog. Once the beast has been subdued, between 4 and 9 wilds will appear on the reels in random positions.
There is also the Chicken Run Wilds where the Sergeant Chicken will risk his life to climb the walls, which will result in players winning between 2 and 4 fully stacked wild reels but this isn’t the last time we see the Sergeant. His life is put in grave danger by the Care Package which drops on the Sarge’s head, cracking the box open and spreading the glorious golden eggs onto the reels. Once the spin is complete, all eggs transform into a matching symbol.
The Great Chicken Escape - Bonus Features
Once the player spins 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels, they will be given the option to receive a random bonus feature or they can gamble to receive a completely different one. The five potential bonuses are:
Secret Tunnel Bonus
The player will be given the option to choose between the three chests on the screen, once one is picked the player will win either a cash reward, move on to the Mystery Tunnel feature or collect which unfortunately ends the bonus round. The Mystery Tunnel add-on leads players into another one of the bonuses below.
Poultry In Motion
Quite possibly the greatest name for a bonus round we’ve ever seen here on Slot Boss. Players pick eggs to reveal the number of steps they advance on the multiplier path. This occurs until the collect sign pops up which once again will end the feature.
Get Clucky Free Spins
As Daft Punk says, we’re up all night to Get Clucky. Fortunately, these Free Spins won’t require the player to spin all night as they receive a total of 10 free spins and as each wild symbol appears on the reel, the win multiplier will increase, meaning that if 15 wild symbols land on the reels, players will have a 15x multiplier by the end of the spins.
To the Other Side Free Spins
Ever had that friend who asked why the chicken crossed the road only to tell you it was to get to the other side? In this bonus round, they have a point. Players receive 9 free spins and all wild symbols that appear during the spins are collected and then added in random positions on the final spin.
The Great Escape Big Money Bonus
Players can pick between 12 barrels, each barrel contains a cash reward ranging from 10x up to 500x as well as a golden egg which will allow players to either respin or collect. This is the bonus round with the highest potential and can lead to players winning 500x their stake.
The Boss Believes
In our opinion, you’d have to be clucking mad to choose to miss out on this slot as a gaming experience. If this is one of those online slots that you’re unsure about, try out a demo before playing. However, this is definitely one of Pragmatic Play’s best games or at least in our opinion, when you consider they also released the classic Sweet Bonanza and Pirate Gold there might be some debate. This also means that we might have to make some changes to one of our most recent casino blog posts where we ranked Our Favourite Pragmatic Slots of 2019 so far.
