I love to pop a chook on the old barbie, so the Chicken Fox slot seems like a chance to get my appetite up while having a quick whirl on the reels.
This oddly titled slot is a homespun farm yard charm-fest of a game and will have you trying to harvest cash in a trice. The star of the game is lean and hungry (unlike our friends over on the Two Fat Cats slot who are carrying a bit of weight).
Set in the hen house, this Lightning Box Games slot is a little bit like putting on your fave slippers and a onesie: a guilty pleasure. Play the game in them if you like! That’s the beauty of online slots.
Look and Feel
This slot is a cosy little number: the antics take place on the wooden reels of a shed and piles of green cash are bundled around the reels. This isn’t a game that’s trying to flex its graphical muscle, rather it’s a cute slot with respectable looks and a funny vibe. It looks a lot warmer than the Frozen Queen slot, that’s for sure!
Relaxed guitar strumming and the clucking of hens is the game’s perky background sound. Life’s pretty dandy down on the farm ain’t it?
This farm yard fantasy has been cooked up over 3 rows, five reels and 25 pay-lines. So not as many as the Gold Cash slot for example, but pretty substantial on the lines front. As slots go, the gaming kicks off from a higher than average 30p a spin, but the upper limit per spin is a crazy high £450 a spin.
The beasts and equipment of the farm and yard are the high scoring creatures with a tractor, and four different sized chirpy chickens. There is also a smiling pig and a merrily chomping goat. They all look like they are happy to be there.
The Ace and King of the card deck are a duo of mid value symbols with the Queen, Jack and ten taking up the lower value spots. These mid to low icons are all decorated with a harvest festival’s worth of natural goodies.
Things become a little more complex for even this quick brained marsupial when I spotted that there’s a pair of Wilds.
The bespectacled farmer’s wife with a freshly baked pie is worth a packet and is the regular Wild. Land five of this lovely lady on an active pay-line and feast on a 166.6 x your wager cash party. She subs for all icons except the Scatter.
The other Wild is the predator of the game’s title, the grinning fox, who arrives with the bonus game. This fox serves its purpose, disposing of all the chickens on the reels when it shows up. There’s also a related Fox Wild which brings a double multiplier. A nice touch.
The Scatter, a giant golden egg, is the key to unlocking the free spins feature.
Chicken Fox Slot Bonuses
Free Spins Feature Three, four or five Scatters will launch the Free Spins feature awarding little ol’ you with 8, 15 or 30 free games respectively.
You’ll find yourself on a new set of glossy reels where the only icons in sight are the four chickens, the fox, blanks and a great big white egg.
The chickens each have a hard cash amount attached to them. If the Wild fox clears the chooks off the reels, their total becomes your prize. Cluck cluck!
If Lady Luck is with you, you will lure a fox and chicken to land on the same spin. If this happens, you’ll gain a prize: the fatter the bird, the more profitable the win.
Lucratively, you can trigger more free games if you land either of our foxy pals – five spins for the regular fox and ten for the 2x Wild and the big egg. If you land the predators alone, in either form, you can gain one or two additional spins.
Chicken Fox slot charmed this wombat with its homey vibe and crafty gift giving fox. This is a fairly straight forward slot with the exception of the free spins game which keeps things just on the right side of interesting.
These animal antics come packed in a medium variance game. If you’re wondering which came first the chicken or the egg, the answer is hopefully the dosh!
