Eggomatic Slot by NetEnt
Eggomatic is a quirky 3D animated online video slot game produced by Net Entertainment. The opening video sequence sets the scene as a mechanical rooster discovers egg production is down at the local factory. The Rooster then invents a Eggomatic machine to save the day. The backdrop to the game is a view of the factory with the mechanical egg machine sitting beside the reels. The reels themselves are mechanical wires where the various chickens (reel symbols) perch. When a winning combination is achieved, an electric current is sent through the wire animating the various chickens involved.
5 Reel Animated Chicken Slot
The slot machine setup in Eggomatic includes the classic 5-reel setup with three rows and a total of 20 paylines. In this game, players can set the number of coins from 0.01 up to 0.10 coins per payline. There are four main bonus features in the slot including a Wild symbol, spreading Wilds, Free Spins and bonus wins. On the reels, the highest paying symbol is the large mother hen in red followed by the pink hen, the green hen and the blue hen. The lower paying symbols are all the little mechanical chicks of various colours.
Rooster Wild Symbol
The Wild symbol in Eggomatic is the mechanical rooster himself. When he appears on the reels, he can substitute for any of the other mechanical hens and chicks in order to form a winning combination on an active payline. The Wild symbol does not pay out in itself but is used to activate all of the other bonus features. At any point during the base game, the Eggomatic machine will rumble and belch out an egg onto the conveyer belt above the reels. Each egg denotes a type of bonus feature.
Spreading Wild and Free Spins
The first type of bonus egg that can be produced is the spreading Wild egg. When the egg moves over a reel containing a Wild symbol, it will drop onto the reels and turn all the adjacent symbols into Wilds making it easier to form a winning combination. This is only activated if a Wild symbol is already on the reels.
The second type of egg produced by the Eggomatic is a free spins egg. This is also activated when the egg is directly positioned above a Wild symbol on the reels. When this happens, the egg will drop onto the reels and start the fees spins round. Here players can win any number of free spins from 7 up to 50 at a time.
Coin Bonus and Mystery Egg
The third type of bonus egg that the machine can produce is the coin win egg. Each coin win egg will have a number displayed on the egg. When the egg is positioned above a rooster Wild symbol, the Egg will drop onto the reels and the amount displayed on the egg will be added to the player’s total winnings. The maximum a coin egg can award is 2500 coins. The final bonus egg produced by the Eggomatic is the mystery egg. This egg can turn into any one of the other bonus eggs when it drops onto a Wild symbol, either awarding spreading Wilds, free spins or coin prizes.
