NextGen Gaming Funky Chicken Video Slot Review

Funky Chicken: Demo

Head on down to the farm and try and cultivate a healthy crop of coins in Funky Chicken. The likeliest way to do so in this 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from NextGen Gaming is via the Free Games feature. There you can look forward to up to 30 free spins with a multiplier of up to 10x applied to each one of them. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 25p and £62.50 per spin.

There’s a light-hearted, cartoon feel to the visuals in Funky Chicken. The reels are set against a corn field and include the usual lower value royal values and an assortment of farmyard-themed symbols. They include eggs and tractors which pay up to 10 times your bet per payline and a farmhouse that will get you 20 times your bet if you land 5 in combination.

The shotgun-toting farmer is the top payer, awarding 50 times your stake if you land 5 on a line. Helping to create those winners is the scarecrow which is the wild. It substitutes for everything bar the scatter and delivers payouts of 200 times your bet if you land 5 across the same payline.

The highlight of the game is the Free Games feature which is triggered in the usual manner by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter (the smiling Funky Chicken). You can look forward to 15 free spins as well as an award of 4, 20 or 100 times your total bet.

Before the free spins begin, watch out for the chicken who’ll appear with a board. This will reveal the multiplier up to 10x which is applied to all payouts throughout the feature. Land 3 or more scatters on 1 of your free spins and you’ll land a re-trigger. That means another payout and another 15 free spins complete with the original multiplier.

Funky Chicken is pretty simple fare, both in terms of design and features. The game has a certain slapstick quality, especially in the bonus round where the free spins are accompanied by a wild country and western tune. It might not be the most sophisticated game you’ll see but for some basic cartoon fun you’d be clucking mad not to give Funky Chicken a quick look at least. If you want something with more bonus features, Dragon Wins from NextGen Gaming is recommended.
