NetEnt’s EggOMatic slot is right up there with a select number of slot games that are purely madcap. The designers have chucked the rule book out of the window, creating a game that is all about a crazy chicken egg factory where a special robotic “EggOMatic” machine is trying to increase the number of eggs produced by making metal ones.
This contraption makes different metal eggs which add four different bonus elements to the reels- watch out for the surprise egg! This is a world away from games like Berryburst and Starburst – which just goes to show their range of games.
Look and Feel
This game has outstanding graphics – certainly up there with the likes of the Champion’s Goal slot machine and Asgardian Stones (another Netent game).
You are running the EggOMatic machine and the whole theme has the look of a robotic factory, stacked with kooky looking chickens. Think of the Robocop slot machine and then add in a bunch of chickens and you are almost there.
The reels themselves are set in a metal frame full of the birds. On the right is the bulging metal EggOMatic machine which cranks into action, popping out different eggs on top of the reels and onto a conveyor belt, which given the right signal drop down into play. It’s completely crazy.
The background sound is all mechanical clunks and crashes with chicken clucks added for good measure.
Eggomatic Game Play
The “eggcentric” slot is a 3 rows, 5 reel and 20 pay-line game. That’s pretty standard fare like the Flame slot machine, but that’s where we leave normality as far as this game goes.
The high value icons are a cast of cartoon chickens with the lower value icons being a set of metal chicks in brown, blue, green, pink and red. Watch out for the Wild – a great big blue rooster. There he is to the left.
There is no bonus element but when the EggOMatic makes an egg, it comes in one of four kinds: Spreading Wilds, Free Spin, Coin Win and Surprise Egg.
Where a Wild rooster shows up on a reel, the EggOMatic egg rolls along the conveyor belt at the top of the reels and drops into the rooster’s wings and that prize egg is yours!
– The Spreading egg turns surrounding icons (diagonal and adjacent) into Wilds to give you more chances of earning an “eggcellent” win.
– The Free Spin egg awards you a random number of spins starting with 7 but potentially reaching 50 free spins. And you can win more spins in the free spins.
– When you get a Coin Win egg, your win will reflect your stake but our feathered friend can give you between 50 and a 2500 coins.
– And last, but not least, there’s the Surprise egg which randomly gives one of the above egg prizes.
The EggOMatic slot is a crazy game with great looks. NetEnt manages to pull it off – this game is great fun and has some good features.
