Eggomatic by NetEnt
Sometimes, you load up a video slot game and just know that it’s going to be entertaining and Eggomatic falls firmly into that category. Even the main game board has been styled to look like the factory in the name, with robot chickens perched precariously in the symbol positions as they work away at laying their metallic eggs. From a gameplay perspective in its simplest form, this slot is actually pretty simple to get to grips with and plays out as normal, with players looking to match up the various coloured chicken robots and special symbols across twenty win lines. However, just a few minutes on this game soon reveals that there is much more to the action than meets the eye.
Bonus Base Game Eggs
Perhaps the best thing about Eggomatic is that you never need to leave the main screen in order to keep on playing as the bonus features are tied in to the standard action. That may be the norm nowadays on NetEnt slots, but it was pretty innovative back then! You’ll need to keep an eye on the Eggomatic itself on the side of the screen, which will occasionally pop out an egg onto the conveyor belt that runs across the top of the screen. It starts out above the fifth reel and then moves along once place until it falls off the left of the board if it isn’t triggered. What you’re looking to do is land the big blue wild chicken on a reel with an egg above it, at which point you’ll receive a bonus prize.
There are four potential eggs and we’ll kick off with the surprise egg as it can simply randomly award one of the other three special features. We then move on to the coin egg which is equally simple, with a cash prize being awarded when the egg is hatched. Next up is the spreading wild egg, which will turn all symbols around the existing wild chicken into additional wilds for even bigger and better wins. Finally, we get to our favourite egg which is the free spins egg – land this one and you’ll instantly be awarded free games within the range of seven and fifty at random. The eggs continue to hit the conveyor during free games too so there’s every chance of hitting even more free spins before the initial round is over.
Eggomatic marked the start of NetEnt tackling innovative board based features and it delivers as well today as it ever did. The feature eggs come together to make the game just as potentially lucrative as any other, with no waiting around for scatter symbols and that definitely sounds good to us!
