Design and Stats
If you’ve ever wondered why so many oriental slot machines bear a red colour scheme, it’s because the colour red is known as a symbol of luck that is said to keep evil away. Red is the colour that has been used predominantly within the Golden Chicken slot machine with plenty of oriental features to be found on the reels.
The theme of the slot is a combination of luck with hip-hop, which seems to work very well despite its uniqueness. Symbols feature traditional Asian themed items such as a lantern, but you’ll also find a golden egg, a bling-a-ling chicken with shades and a thick golden chain around its neck and a very hip child whose fingers are full of rings.
Trigger the non-progressive jackpot by spinning in a payline full of five of the golden money pot symbols. If you manage to do this, the 2,000x multiplier will be applied to your stake. Minimum bets of 0.40 will return a jackpot of 800.00, whilst high roller maximum stakes will return a jackpot of 80,000.
Clucking Mad Features
To start with, Golden Chicken offers scatters and wilds – these will act as they usually do, so the wild will replace every other symbol (except the scatter and bonus symbols) to help form winning paylines. The hip-looking child is you wild and he can appear singular or stacked during the free spins bonus. Reels 2, 3 and 4 offer the wild symbols only.
Scatters offer a multiplier value for spinning three anywhere on your reels, but not only that – they also trigger the free spins. Three very bling looking chicken symbols will offer 8 free spins, four will award 12 free spins whilst five will offer the maximum of 20 free spins. During the free spins bonus, the wild will appear stacked on a randomly chosen reel (2, 3 or 4) to boost any winnings and winning potential for the duration of your free spins. You can trigger more free spins during the free spins bonus.
If the golden egg should fall on reels 1 and 5 in the same spin, you will enter the bonus game. This simple pick game will reward you with some great cash amounts. Choose from the red cards on the screen to try and match three of the same egg symbols. There are four possible wins; gold, pink, blue and white on offer and you will receive the prize that matches your three chosen cards. Good news with this bonus is, that you are guaranteed a win.
Our Thoughts on the Game
For a medium to high variance slot machine, we found there were plenty of ways that you could win – despite the lack of symbols on the reels. Every spin offers 1024 different ways to win, so finding wins shouldn’t be too difficult.
When we played the Golden Chicken slot game, we managed to trigger the free spins round and bonus game on numerous occasions. The biggest wins come from the free spins bonus – this is purely because there are stacked wilds in every single spin. We couldn’t fault the design with it all being linked to luck, but the music did get a bit repetitive.
