The wombat says: Take a trip to the chicken coop Wombat Fans and try and hatch a big win! Yes, the Golden slot transports you to a farm where you’ll meet a plucky rooster and his offspring as you spin to win. Slot Wizards NextGen Gaming launched this game along with the Snowflakes slot in March 2017 to celebrate the Year of the Rooster, and the game comes complete with a rather nice and fairly unusual bit of game play. The Wild symbol in Golden Rooster can substitute for ALL symbols in this slot, including the Scatter! This wombat has never seen such a thing! So let’s take a look at what this Rooster is made of, shall we?
The Golden slot is your standard 5 reel, 3 row, 243 ways to win game. Which means that you won’t need to worry about pay-lines like some of their earlier games (such as the Flash Velocity slot with its fifty, yes fifty pay-lines!) Simply line up matching symbols anywhere on the reels from left to right and you’ll win. It’s a big step up from older NextGen games like the Owl Eyes slot, we have to admit.
Set on a background of some rather fecund farmland, the reels spin on a red hen house with a bright blue background that really helps the symbols to pop out at you. The visuals have an fun animated feel and you get to play along to a jaunty whistle-heavy soundtrack.
Your symbols include the lower value 9, 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards, then there’s the eggs, the cute little chick, the lady chicken, plus the chicken coup. Landing 2x of these on adjacent reels will get you a payout of 10 coins, but land 3x, 4x or 5x of the coops and you’ll win 50, 100 or 1,000 coins respectively.
The proud-looking Rooster is the game’s Wild symbol and will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Unusually, it substitutes for ALL and we mean ALL other symbols including the Scatter – whoooppp! Which means more free spins for you.
Scatter and Spins
Just like the Rooster Wild, the Scatter symbol – a lucky Chinese trinket with a chicken’s feather- will only land on reels 3, 4 & 5. Get 3 of these beauties (or even just a combo of Wilds and Scatters) and it’s time for the Rooster Free Games Bonus. You’ll also scoop a cheeky cash win of 50 coins.
After you’ve triggered the bonus you’ll be given 10 free spins – but here’s the twist; during your spins, a new and rather special Golden Rooster is added to the reels. Keep your eyes peeled for this symbol because it acts as both a Wild and Scatter, and if you land 3x of them on the same go anywhere on the reels you’ll get another 10 Free Spins! You can retrigger as many times as you like…
Plus, you’ll really lay a golden egg in this round by landing 5 of a kind of any of the game’s symbols. Manage that you lucky roosters, and you’ll get a 5x multiplier on your bet as well as an already hefty payout.
The Golden slot is a basic slot to play, but with its unique way to launch the Free Spins Bonus (using both the Scatter and Wild symbols) and the nice animations, it’s worth a go. Good luck!
