The Great Chicken Escape Details
The Great Chicken Escape is a 5-reel slot game by Pragmatic Play. You’ll be helping the chicken soldiers fight their way out of the farm through their captive guard dogs.
The basic symbols are the deck’s high cards. These are the Jack (J), Queen (Q), King (K), and Ace (A). Each one has different payouts for their winning combinations based on the max bet:
The high-paying symbols are all the different chickens and their official military ranks in the chicken militia. Each one has different payouts for their winning combinations based on the max bet:
*Getting 2 ‘The Great Chicken Escape’ Logos gives you up to 10.
The Wild symbol is represented by the Red Rooster Chicken General. It substitutes paying symbols except for the Bonus symbol. Getting enough Wilds also rewards you depending on each winning combination below. They are based on the max bet:
A random number of Guard Dog Wilds will appear randomly on your reels during your regular spins. They range from a total of 4 to 9 and they are Wild, meaning they substitute paying symbols except for the Bonus.
2 to 4 reels can randomly become Wild reels. They are covered entirely in Chicken Run Wild symbols resembling Uncle Sam’s iconic ‘I Want You’ poster.
Golden Egg symbols will drop time to time on your reels during a spin. When the spin ends, the Golden Egg symbols are replaced with a random symbol except for the Bonus and Wild symbols.
The Bonus symbol is represented by a map indicating their escape strategy. It appears on all reels. If you manage to hit 3 or 4, you get a random bonus feature. If you get 5, you automatically get the Big Money Bonus by default.
If you would prefer getting a better feature for your Bonus, you can partake in the Feature Gamble. When you do, 5 pies appear on-screen with your randomly selected one highlighted for clarity. You can start the Bonus Game feature with the selected pie or you can gamble and attempt to get the next feature in line.
You can continue gambling until you reach the Big Money Bonus, fail a gamble, or start the bonus game with your selected feature. If you lose your gamble, you don’t get the bonus game and you get a Mystery Prize instead.
3 chests will appear on your screen and you decide which one you want to open. Inside each chest is one of three special rewards: coin rewards, Mystery Tunnel, or Collect. All winnings you get are added to your round’s total. Different things happen depending on which reward you get.
There are 22 points on a trail for you to traverse with each one representing a potential win multiplier amount. You start at the very beginning and are presented with 5 golden eggs to choose from. Each one reveals 1-5 steps or Collect.
If you get Collect, you end the Bonus and you are given the reward you earned on the last point you landed on.
If you get 1-5 steps, you move forward by that same amount and are prompted to select another set of golden eggs. If you hit the 22nd point before finding Collect, you automatically get the Big Money Bonus.
You get 10 Free Spins and a sepia Wanted poster variant of the Wild symbol appears. This new symbol still substitutes paying symbols except for the Bonus. Whenever you land the Wanted Wild on your reels, you increase your win multiplier by 1x for the duration of your Free Spins.
You get 9 Free Spins and 1 Special Free Spin. On the first 9 Free Spins, the regular Wild symbol can appear. When it does, it is collected in a special Wild bank. Once you get to your Special 10th Free Spin, all the Wilds you collected are randomly placed on your reels.
During the Big Money Bonus, you are presented with 12 barrels with each one containing a win value. The carousel of barrels will spin and the barrel you land on is awarded to you with its win value. At the end of every spin, you can pick another golden egg to continue spinning the carousel and earning more. However, if you land on Collect from the golden egg instead, the Bonus ends and your winnings are added to your total for the round.
The game’s farm has combined the grit of an army training base with the grime of a neglected chicken farm without being too harsh. The henhouses have been left uncared for and the living conditions are difficult.
They’ve made the game a comedic visual experience with the chickens dressed as military soldiers of various ranks, complete with fatigues and headwear. The game’s cartoonish artwork perfectly captures the essence of old stop-motion films with similar themes. Most of which were escaping from a farm as well. No other slot game has battle-scarred chickens posting up propaganda, riding motorcycles, and digging tunnels—at least not to this extent.
Fast-paced violins and trumpets play as you spin the reels, matching the speed of the beats. Because the game makes use of music befitting a military training montage, it fills you with the spirit of battle and embeds itself in your memory after a few spins.
One of the first things soldiers learn upon entering the military is the virtue of loyalty. The same is no different for chickens. As the saying goes, ‘birds of a feather flock together’.
Pragmatic Play continues to show that they don’t simply wing it. They take great pride in delivering quality slot games, no matter what the theme may be, and The Great Chicken Escape is proof of that. Some of their other games that also tickle your furry bone are The Dog House and Monkey Madness.
The unique artistic and thematic value Pragmatic Play has brought to the playing table with The Great Chicken Escape is something other game providers could take note of. It already has an incredible number of spin modifiers and five different bonus features. The only thing that would really make it a perfect game would be a grand jackpot—and that’s exactly what it has.
You’ll be feeling peckish once you get the chance to taste a piece of that scrumptious mBTC 500,000 reward. So ready your ‘hen-durance’ and get spinning, soldier!
