Get Clucky slot had me groaning as soon as I saw the title as I had visions of a juvenile game themed on chickens and hens; I wasn’t wrong in my assumption. The reels are set in a henhouse based in a Prairie Farmstead background and things get even worse as the reels spin and stop with inane sounds and a twanging Country and Western-style banjo, supplemented by irritating chicks tweeting in background. The game has a touch of Netent’s Tornado Farm Escape about it, with a sprinkling of NextGen’s Golden Hen. So can any of these hens lay you a golden egg?
On the reels…
There are 20 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows each and all symbols are single. The Cockerel acts as the game’s Wild and appears on all reels and doubles any wins it appears in – get 5-of-a-kind and you get the top pay of 500x stake! After these these the red and blue chicks pay 37.5x, the yellow one 20x and lastly the green and purple ones for 12.5 x stake for the full 5. The card values remain which pay 1.25 to 6.25x bet for a full line of 5. The remaining symbol also appears on all reels in the form of the slot’s logo and 3 or more will trigger Get Clucky slot’s only bonus round.
Clucking free spins
Having landed 3 or more of the game icons in view we are treated to 10 free spins which IGT have imaginatively titled ‘Eggspanding Spins’. They can be retriggered up to a maximum of 120 and the enhancement we are given is the Wilds now become expanding Wilds. Here must be where the game’s potential lies as given that 5 Wilds pays 500x bet a full screen should be possible, paying 20 times that amount. This would have to be the game’s ‘Golden Egg’ and happy days if that one hatches for you!
Get Clucky slot is a corny as slots can get, with the childish cartoon graphics and equally annoying and silly sound effects and animations. It’s quite a basic game for IGT who seem to be joining the craze for infantile graphics that emanates from the Scandinavian developers, although before this they only had the odd one or two such as Balloonies. You get an RTP quoted as 91.71-95.70% and of course the potential for large wins in the Eggspanding Free Games round – if you can bear playing it long enough to trigger them. I simply found the game uneggciting, eggcruciating to play and the sounds left my head scrambled. If this theme is your sort of thing then go check out NetEnt’s EggOmatic slot, but I won’t be laying any money on IGT’s Get Clucky…
