Wombat says: The Funky Chicken was a dance made popular in the 1960s, but fear not Wombatters, thankfully this slot has absolutely nothing to do with the decade that brought us bell bottoms, lava lamps and a whole load of orange and brown home furnishings. Oh and the Beatles. And the Stones. And VW Camper Vans, it wasn’t all bad.
Nope, the groovy bird in the Funky Chicken Slot is of the barnyard variety. And that’s all thanks to NextGen- those people behind the Monster Wins Scratch and other groovy games like Foxin’ Wins and Valhalla.
Let’s head on down to his farm see if we can’t scoop a whole load of coinage from our feathered friend!
Look and Feel
‘Move those chicken legs!’ This is the first motivational message from NextGen that you’ll see pop up underneath reels. Let’s be honest, the design in Funky Chicken slot is pretty basic Wombat Fans compared to other NextGen stuff like the Spin Sorceress scratchcard, but it is bright and cheerful which makes up for it.
Your the reels are set against a corn field, complete with blue sky, scarecrow and a job lot of plump juicy sweetcorn.
Overall the graphics have a cartoony feel, and as for the music, your soundtrack is represented by a seriously twangy, banjo-playing country ditty.
Funky Chicken Slot Game Play
Funky Chicken is 5 reel, 3 row and 25 pay-line slot from NextGen Gaming. Less pay-line than the Emoticoins slot you’ll notice, but more than many slots we’ve played- we’d say 25 is about average.
Your reels are made up of all things pastoral and include the usual 9, 10, J, Q, K & A as your low value symbols, plus a whole host of farmyard-themed icons as your high value ones (naturally).
These include: a great big egg, a red tractor, the farmhouse, an angry looking shotgun-toting farmer with enormous red eyebrows, and the scarecrow who will act as the Wild symbol in Funky Chicken slot. This empty-headed fella will do the usual job of helping you create extra winning combos as it substitutes for everything else on the reels except for the Scatter Symbol. It will also pay out a handsome 200x your bet if you manage to land 5x on a payline.
And speaking of which, the Scatter icon is the Funky Chicken. Keep your eyes peelded for this daft-looking bird.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Land 3x or more of the Funky Chicken Scatters anywhere on the reels you mothercluckers and it’s Free Spins time! Yes, you’ll pick up 15 free spins with a multiplier of up to 10x that is applied to each and every one of ’em…
Before the spins start, Mr Funky Chicken himself will wander on to your reels and reveal your multiplier – which is a nice little touch. And it’s also worth noting slot fans that bonus can be re-triggered too. This means another payout, and another 15 free spins complete with the original multiplier. Not too shabby!
All in all, Funky Chicken is a simple slot, both in terms of its look and feel and the game play on offer – in fact, aside from the Free Spins, there aren’t any other features to speak of. So, if it’s sticky wilds and exploding symbols that you’re after then you are better off looking elsewhere. That said, if you land a decent multiplier from Mr Funky Chicken then you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.
