Get ready for a hilarious barnstorm on the slot from Fantasma Games. A noisy gang of roosters will enter the hen house on the farmyard before going wild on the reels to start the Storm Meter that can lead to wins of up to 3,429 times your stake. Want even more thrill? Then make use of three gamble modes that double your base wins up to four times.
Chicken Storm is a video slot with three reels, three rows and five fixed pay lines. You will need to hit three matching symbols on a line from left to right to score a win. Stormin the barn on mobile, desktop and tablet starts at 0.05 credits and goes up to a risky 100 credits. The RTP of this medium to high variance game is set at 96.45%. Playing in the Storm Meter Mode increased the RTP to 97.27%.
The slot is taking us to a tranquil farmyard with the chick barn in the background. HD graphics and elaborate animations convey a superior feeling. A sunny day with blue skies turns into a thunderous dark scene the soon the Chicken Storm is triggered. A country soundtrack together with rooster and chicken cries provide the fitting audio to the gameplay.
All pay symbols can appear fully stacked at all times. They start at the low end with corncobs, eggs and a couple of baby chicks. Pays for a three of a kind range from 2x to 4x your bet. A full screen will yield 10x and 20x your stake. They are followed by a purple chicken, a lightning strike, an electrified chicken and the angry rooster. Hit three on a line to win 6x to 20x or a full screen for 30x to 100x your bet. There are no wilds or scatters on the reels.
The game comes with two features that are the key to mega wins. Since the maximum in the base game peaks at 100x your stake, they represent the only chance to hit anything bigger. You can either gamble any win or enter the Storm Meter mode when you hit a win of minimum 80 coins or 16x your bet.
You can enter the gamble after any win, where you will be presented with three options – 1:4, 2:4 and 3:4. Obviously, you will win more when you pick the first option as it has lower odds for finding a golden coin. Before making you pick, you can choose whether you want to risk 40% or 80% of your base win. Make your pick to reveal either a gold coin or come up empty. The gamble can be repeated up to four times and you can collect at any point. Losing the gamble will end the game.
The second and more exhilarating feature is the Storm Meter Mode. You can decide whether to enter it when you hit a win of minimum 80 coins or 16x your bet. The scenery goes dark with a dramatic thunderstorm passing through. The win from the base game is transferred to the Storm Meter balance.
Your aim is now to score wins by risking 15 coins or 3x your base bet per round. The respins on level two and three are free. All wins are multiplied by x4 on level one. Hitting vertically stacked lightning strikes will award a respin and increase the multiplier to x6. If you land stacked electrified chicken on the respin, you’ll get another respin with an x10 multiplier. You will stay on the top multiplier as long as you score wins.
Did we storm the barn on Chicken Storm? It is indeed a fast-paced game with high-quality graphics and decent win potential. However, the core feature wasn’t easy to trigger as wins bigger than 16x your bet do not happen that often on slots. You will need either multi-line wins with low-value symbols or a hit with the two top symbols.
