Golden Hen slot is yet another Oriental-themed game this time offering Rooster, eggs and Chinese tokens as the symbols plus variations on the theme. The slot is pretty basic, although we do have 243-ways to win. But it does seem to be a copy of NextGen’s Titan Storm slot. Golden slot is built in html5, making it available across all devices.
On the reels…
There are no reel sounds unless Wilds land or wins; instead we are treated to irritating background music that sounds more Country and Western than Oriental – slightly confusing. The 1x Wilds take the form of well fed Gold Hens and only appear on the centre 3 reels but do substitute for the Chinese Token scatters that also only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and which trigger the game’s bonus. The highest – paying symbol is the Cockerel Weather Vane (at least that’s what it looks like!) of which 5-of-a-kind pays a respectable 80x stake, down to the lowest card symbols at 2x stake.
Should you land any combination of scatters/Wilds on the middle 3 reels then 10 free spins ensue. They can be retriggered and there are 2 extra benefits during them; Firstly the scatters also become Wilds effectively doubling the amount of Wilds available and secondly any 5-of-a-kind wins attained will be awarded a 5x multiplier. Given the highest symbol pays 80x stake that makes single wins of 400x stake possible!
Golden Hen slot is unoriginal, a rehash of Titan Storm as previously said. The background music is dreadful and I had to mute it very quickly. You will never hit huge wins on it as the pay tables have seen to that although the RTP is a very high at 97.22%. You will get a decent session for your stake as the variance is no higher than medium and that may suit many players. It might become one of a number of slots that players weed out their wagering requirement on a bonus, assuming the game is not restricted in the bonus terms.
