Look at all those chickens! A platoon of poultry flees the coop in all new slots from Pragmatic Play.
Rest assured, if there’s a slot machine on the market themed around a farm or ranch, it’s either got sexy young ranch hands as the main character(s), or the design team was aiming for comedic gold. I’m more of a fan of the latter myself, which is why I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the newest online slots release from Pragmatic Play.
The Great Chicken Escape Slot hit the virtual casino market in the last week of August, featuring a courageous cavalry of plotting poultry intent on fleeing their coop. Jam packed with bonus features and fine-feathered mayhem, this slot has all the potential for humorous entertainment as players spin the reels in hopes of unleashing inimitable wealth.
“We are delighted to release our latest thrilling slot, The Great Chicken Escape,” comments Yossi Barzely, Pragmatic Play’s Chief of Business Development. “With a plethora of features and an incredibly fun theme, we look forward to seeing The Great Chicken Escape being a success for us.”
All New Slots from Pragmatic Play
The Great Chicken Escape is a fresh new theme from Pragmatic Play, delivering a favorable 96.5% RTP and much appreciated comic relief throughout the virtual casino realm. The game takes place on a set of 5×3 reels with 20 fixed paylines, accepting wagers of $0.20 up to $100 per spin.
The Great Chicken Escape logo is the highest paying symbol, followed by the game’s main characters, the military-esque commanders of the coop-troop. Below them are the lower-paying symbols A-K-Q-J. The four lead hens all don green berets, distinguishing them from the lone rooster, who wears a red beret and represents the game’s Wild symbol.
Apart from being the highest paying symbol in the game, the also plays the typical role of replacing any other symbol in the game (except bonus scatters) to help line up winning combinations.
