Some slot games are based on movies, while some deserve to have movies based on them. EggOMatic by Net Entertainment is a really zany slot with a unique theme and simply amazing graphics. This highly original five-reel, 20 payline slot centres around a robotic egg factory populated by robot chickens, with high energy and an original approach to features.
Look and Feel
Slot games rarely get more visually impressive than this. EggOMatic starts with a short CGI video showing a robotic rooster, something of a foreman character, in charge of a factory that produces eggs. The egg production is suffering and he needs your help to get it going again. The animation and detail is very impressive indeed, rivalling some animated movies.
The slot begins with the controls emerging from a console, which occasionally steams. The reels are racks of robot chickens, who sometimes spark. Light hearted music combines with colourful characters, old-school reel footage and genuinely funny animations to make you feel like you’re really in some wacky egg factory.
The least valuable symbol is the brown chick and the most valuable is the dumpy, red hen. However, you’re mostly looking out for the wild, which features the rooster, as this is wild and substitutes for the highest possible win combination on that line. He also activates the feature eggs, described below.
The beauty of this game is that every spin is quite exciting, as the dispenser to the right keeps chucking out eggs along the top of the reels. As well as watching out for all the fun animations on the reels, you’re waiting for a rooster to come along and activate the eggs.
Players can wager up to $200 per spin, or as low as 0.20 coins.
The features revolve around four types of egg dispensed by the machine; the Free Spins Egg, Spreading Wild Egg, Coin Win Egg and a Surprise Egg. When a wild rooster appears in the same reel as one of these, it gets cracked open and triggered.
The Coin Win egg is the simplest, giving you an instant prize which is multiplied by your bet level. By default, it goes as high as 2,500 coins. The Free Spins egg enters a feature mode, which gives you between seven and 50 free spins. You can win more spins in the process and each spin in this mode dispenses another feature egg, to increase your chances of triggering another prize. This is the best way to get big wins on EggOMatic.
The Spreading Wild egg turns all diagonal and adjacent symbols into extra rooster wilds, so you can hit more wins this way. Finally, the Surprise Egg simply opens to reveal one of the other eggs, meaning there are really just three features in practise. Still, this unusual slot will certainly stand out from others when you play it.
