I know what you’re thinking; “surely not another poultry labour camp online slot, don’t these guys have any better thematic ideas?”. At Bet UK, we hear you, but the incredibly innovative Pragmatic Play have clearly put plenty of time into ensuring The Great Chicken Escape slot will prove highly popular, with some incredible bonus features up for grabs.
About The Great Chicken Escape
Pragmatic Play have produced some of most memorable and best online casino games, with Sweet Bonanza sticking in our minds. However, the theme of The Great Chicken Escape on its own is enough to propel this slot into the realm of our favourites, and that’s before you even dissect the fantastic bonus features. If multipliers, free spins, and stupendous poultry puns are something that interests you, The Great Chicken Escape might be worth a play.
Joining the 20 paylines on the 5x3 reels are a variety of symbols. The live casino royal card symbols of J, Q, K, and A are lower paying, while the chicken characters are higher paying. The main character, apparently known as Charlie, is the Wild and will substitute for all other symbols except the Scroll symbol, which is the Bonus, and can trigger one of the five bonus rounds if 3 or more land on the reels on a single spin.

How To Play The Great Chicken Escape
In The Great Chicken Escape, you can edit the amount you are willing to wager on the next spin by using the (+) and (-) buttons either side of the spin button to open the betting tab, where you can make your adjustments accordingly.
If you are happy with the bet amount you’ve set, one full single spin can be played through by clicking the Play button, with two white arrows forming a circle to the right-hand side of the game interface. Any wins that occur as a result of that spin will be directly added to your balance.
Beneath the play button is the autoplay function. This allows the game to play through a chosen number of spins automatically, either 10, 20, 30, 50, 70 or 100. Autoplay session loss and single win limits can also be set up, and the feature will automatically stop if either is hit.
If you require additional information for The Great Chicken Escape, you can access the paytable, player information, and the settings through the menu button in the lower left section of the screen.
The Great Chicken Escape Bonus Features
Base Game Modifiers
On any spin, players may benefit from any of three base game modifiers, that can improve chances of winning combinations. The modifiers are:
Care Package: Stacked golden eggs will land on the reels, and will transform into a random symbol on completion of the spin.
Chicken Run Wilds: Between 2 and 4 reels will become fully wild, potentially achieving big payouts.
Guard Dog Wilds: Between 4 and 9 dog wilds will land on the reels in random positions.
If players land three or more Map scatter symbols on the reels, they will trigger one of five bonus rounds at random. You can either take the awarded feature, or attempt to gamble for a better bonus round. Losing the gamble will award a mystery prize. The available rounds are:
Get Clucky Free Spins: 10 Free Spins will be awarded, and a new ‘Wanted’ wild will be in play. Each Wanted wild that lands will add a multiplier of 1x to remaining free spins.
Poultry in Motion: Choose from a group of golden eggs to advance along the path of multipliers. Reaching the end of the path will result in accessing The Great Escape Big Money Bonus. Otherwise, the section you land on will award the corresponding multiplier.
Secret Tunnel Bonus: Players choose from the 3 displayed chests to uncover a cash prize, mystery tunnel, or collect. Mystery tunnels let you pick a tunnel entrance that will take you to one of the other features at random.
To the Other Side Free Spins: 10 Free Spins will be awarded, with all wild symbols that appear during the course of them are collected in the chicken bank. The final spin is a Free Range Super Spin, which adds the accumulated wilds back onto the reels.
The Great Escape Big Money Bonus: This is the best bonus round, and sees 12 barrels on a carousel, surrounded by golden eggs. The barrels contain cash prizes, up to 500x, and choosing an egg can award a respin of the carousel. Eggs might also contain a collect, which ends the feature.
Bet UK The Great Chicken Escape Slot Review
Pragmatic Play have made some outstanding contributions to our online casino, such as Wolf Gold which boasts a magnificent Blazin Reels Free Spins feature, and Pirate Gold in which 1,000x grand jackpots are up for grabs. However, The Great Chicken Escape is arguably their best release so far, with a wide variety of intriguing bonus rounds on offer. On our first trip to the Big Money Bonus, we won an eye-watering £520 from a £1 stake, although obviously this isn’t necessarily an accurate representation of what to expect, merely an example of the round’s potential.
