Funky Chicken is a game that is available at NextGen Gaming casinos, and which previously was offered by WGS. NextGen acquired and improved a number of games of theirs, even changing some of their features. This is one of those titles, which you can now play on mobile devices as well.
Funky Chicken has been released as a 5 reel slot machine, featuring 25 active lines and offering up to $125,000 in payouts. You can take advantage of wild or scatter symbols, plus you can trigger free spins as well, where there will be multipliers applied to the wins.
Betting and Prizes
The game allows for the lines and their wagers to be modified at will, provided that the range is respected. For one, you get 1 to 25 lines that you can use. Next, you can pick the line bet for each one, their range being $0.01 to $2.50. This way, the game allows for a wager to be selected in a range of $0.01 to $62.50.
The slot’s best reward is going to come via a symbol that also acts as the wild, and it will be capable of offering $12,500 cash at most. There are multipliers possible during free spins, which reach 10x, so at that point you should be able to get up to $125,000 for the same combo.
If you look at the average Return to Player percentage, which is at 95.34%, I don’t think that you’re going to be impressed with it, but it’s not a number that would scare you away either.
Funky Chicken Slot Features
A Cornfield is shown in the wild symbol’s image, complete with a Scarecrow, so it’s easy enough to recognize when it appears. Such symbols are useful for the player in two ways. They can be used in various winning combinations which are formed, on their own or together with other types of symbols. They offer as much as 5,000 coins if they form combinations with other wilds, up to five of them taking over a line. When used as wilds, they don’t act as scatters, but they work as any other symbol.
Look to the next symbol that’s going to do something nice for you, and the Funky Chicken will be shown in it. This would be the scatter symbol, which by appearing a couple of times on the reels it can deliver a prize, even one as high as 100x your bet.
With the help of three or more Funky Chicken symbols, present somewhere on the reels, the game will give us 15 free spins. At the start of the free spins, the Chicken will show up and will reveal to the player what multiplier will be applied to the wins. Apparently, it can be as high as 10x.
Theme & Design
The theme of Funky Chicken takes the action to a farm. You see the cornfield in the background image and in a smaller version as the wild symbol. There is the main character as well, the Funky Chicken, plus the farmer, the farm house, a tractor, an egg and several poker logos. The aim with this design was to make it funny and funky, and they’ve achieved that. Nobody will mistake it with a modern slot machine though.
Funky Chicken can give the player several decent features, particularly when multipliers are applied in the free spins, plus a funny design. It should be enough for plenty of players to be able to enjoy it.
