The Great Chicken Escape

The Great Chicken Escape

Humour is often a huge selling point in Pragmatic Play developed casino slots. Few such titles are as comedic or as entertaining as The Great Chicken Escape. This naughty little number is loosely based on the true story of the Allied escape from Stalag Luft III during World War II. It was an event which became immortalised in a Hollywood picture starring Steve McQueen and known as The Great Escape. Of course, this comedic and quirky title is all about chickens desperately attempt to escape their coop. 

The Great Chicken Escape serves up a tidy 20 paylines over its 5 reels, and players are going to find bets flexible, even if those lines are fixed into place. Stakes range from 20p up to £100 a game, while prizes are more than respectable at 500x a bet. The game is considered a medium variance release, although to be fair, that is marginally more gearing towards high volatility than low risk. Let’s look at the other impressive aspects that this game has to offer. 

Special Features 

The hero of the story is known as Charlie - yes, Charlie the Chicken. Our hero is also the wild symbol in this cheeky slot, and he can replace any paying icons you may need to land a win, save for scatter symbols.  

Those scatter, or bonus symbols can dish out cash prizes no matter where they land on the reels of The Great Chicken Escape slot, as you might expect. However, these map symbols can also deliver one of five potential bonuses when they pop up five times on the reels. 

A few randomly triggered goodies are available in The Great Chicken Escape. A random number of substitute symbols can appear in a Guard Dogs feature, while a Chicken Run bonus offers between 2 and 4 random wild reels. Lastly, a Care Package feature fills some of the reels with golden eggs. These are mystery symbols which will all become the same symbol. It is worth noting that landing 3 or 4 scatters will also trigger one of these bonuses. 

Bonus Features 

Players who land 5 scatters will trigger a bonus. The Secret Tunnel bonus allows players to select from a series of chests to win cash, or potentially access to one of four other bonus rounds. One of those could be the Poultry Bonus, which can dish out cash prizes or other features. The Get Clucky round offers 10 free spins with random wilds and increasing multipliers. The Other Side feature promises 9 free spins with random wilds and a Super Spin, whereby any collected wilds are redistributed onto the reels with a special tenth spin. 

Lastly, there is a Great Escape Big Money Bonus. This sees players presented with a series of 12 barrels. Each offers cash prizes. Players can land further picks or cash prizes in the game, with the most valuable of these being worth 500x a bet. 

Overview 

Entertaining, comedic and with great light-hearted fun to offer, there isn’t much wrong with The Great Chicken Escape. Pragmatic Play has developed an online video slot which is brimming over with bonuses, cheap bets and medium to high variance gaming action.
