The Great Chicken Escape Slot Machine
Try Pragmatic Play Slots
Inspired by the animated comedy movie from 2000, the Chicken Run, Pragmatic Play’s The Great Chicken Escape is a really fun slot that is seriously packed with features. You will have a blast going through the gameplay and you will be greatly rewarded when you manage to get to the most lucrative bonus round.
You should know that this is not a conventional slot machine. There are 3 Modifiers you can trigger at random. The first one is the Care Package. This is when the Sergeant Chicken drops a wooden box cracking it open so that golden eggs get spread on the reels. These golden eggs transform into a matching regular symbol, giving you a payout. The second one is the Guard Dog Wilds. This is when the Guard Dog adds 4 to 9 Wilds on random reel positions. The third one is the Chicken Run Wilds Modifier. The Sergeant Chicken shows up again, trying to climb the walls potentially giving you 2 to 4 fully Stacked Wild reels.
Should you manage to land 3 to 4 Scatters, you activate one of the 5 random Bonus features. You can either claim the feature that you get or gamble it in hopes to get a better one. Either way, you have the following random Bonus features:
- To the Other Side Free Spins – 9 Free Spins, all Wilds on the reels are collected and added on random positions on the final spin.
- Secret Tunnel Bonus – 3 chests appear, and your 1 pick reveals a Mystery Tunnel, cash reward or the Collect option that ends the bonus. The Mystery Tunnel gives you a further pick on the four entrances that could take you to any of the four remaining Bonus rounds.
- Get Clucky Free Spins – 10 Free Spins, all Wilds that appear increase the Multiplier by 1x.
- Poultry in Motion – You get to pick eggs that will tell you the number of moves you advance on the Multiplier Trail. The feature ends with the Collect option, however, should you manage to reach the end of the Trail, you get to the following The Great Escape Big Money Bonus round.
- The Great Escape Big Money Bonus – A 12-barrel carousel appears, each offering a cash reward from 10x up to a staggering 500x. You also get golden eggs to pick from which can either end the feature or give you a Respin. This is where you get the max payout in the slot of up to 5,000x the stake.
Theme & Design
Placed either in a chicken concentration camp or a farm, the slot is filled with chicken houses and chickens, all presented with cartoony, but powerful graphics.
On the reels, you will see the lowest-paying playing card Royals from J through A and the more rewarding three chicken symbols. The chicken wearing a red beret is the highest-paying one, giving you 25x the stake for a 5-of-a-kind combo.
Wagering & Paylines
The Great Chicken Escape offers 20 paylines across 5 reels, and a betting range that starts at $0.20 and goes up to $100.00. There is the 96.50% RTP offered in most slots.
Now, as you form a winning combo with the highest-paying symbol, the chicken with the red beret, you get a 25x the stake payout. For the max bet, this means that you get $2,500.00. That’s pretty nice, but not nicer than the max payout potential, which is absolutely staggering. The 5,000x the stake you could collect during the most lucrative Bonus round means $500,000.00 for the max bet. Half a million could be yours should you get to The Great Escape Big Money Bonus, believe it or not.
As per usual, Pragmatic Play has honoured us with an exquisite slot release. The Great Chicken Escape might seem a little bit childish, weird even, in terms of the theme, but when you get to understand the real payout potential here, you won’t bother thinking about the theme. When half a million is for grabs, no one really cares about the theme. The gameplay is quite exciting though and fitted to the theme, so if you still haven't, please do try it out. It will be worth both your money and your time.
