If you thought that Funky Chicken was just a bizarre dance craze, think again, because, in the world of online slot games, the game is a fun, farmyard-themed slot by NextGen Gaming. And, if you get clucky while spinning its reels, you could be taking as much as five thousand times your stake home to roost! The Funky Chicken slot game is playable from 25p and up, and it comes with all the accoutrements you’d expect such as wild symbols that can substitute for others to form wins, scatters that award cash prizes and can activate a bonus game, and a free spins feature that includes generous win multipliers.
The background of the Funky Chicken slot is a cornfield on a summer’s day. A grinning scarecrow pops his head out of the crops on the left-hand side of the screen, and delicious cobs of sweetcorn appear just underneath the reels. Although there’s no constant music playing, each time that you create a win, the symbols used in the winning combination come to life, and a toe-tapping banjo tune starts up.
The majority of the symbols that the slot game uses revolve around the farmyard theme. For example, there’s the scarecrow, a chicken, a farmhouse, an angry farmer carrying a shotgun, an egg, and a tractor. There are also six low-value playing card symbols – 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. The game controls are all accessed via the settings menu (N.B., look for the white cog icon). They allow you to disable/enable the music and sound effects, change the number of active paylines, alter the stake-per-line, set up Auto-Play Spins, and view the paytable.
The wild symbol in the Funky Chicken mobile slot is the smiling scarecrow standing in the cornfield, and it can replace any symbol when it’s possible to create a win except for the scatter symbol. The wild is also the most valuable paytable symbol, and it gives you five thousand times your bet for a five-of-a-kind all-wild win.
The scatter symbol in the Funky Chicken slot is the chicken, and it pays out 2x, 4x, 20x or 100x your bet when it appears two, three, four or five times respectively anywhere on the reels on the same spin. The scatter can also be used to trigger the bonus game.
The main bonus game in the Funky Chicken slot is the Free Spins Bonus, which is triggered when three or more chicken scatter symbols land anywhere in view. When the feature begins, you receive fifteen free spins, but before the bonus gets underway, the chicken appears on the screen to reveal a random win multiplier that’s applied to any winning combinations gained during the Free Spins Bonus. N.B. the maximum multiplier is x10.
Should you manage to retrigger the feature with another three or more chicken scatters, you get another fifteen free games with the same win multiplier as the one which was originally awarded.
