EggOMatic is a 5-reel, 20-pay line online slot from NetEnt. This is another eggs-citing entry into NetEnt's eggs-pansive collection of eggs-cellent online slots. The premise of this clucking game is life in the hen house, which seems cracked up to be no yolk-ing matter. The superb opening animation introduces you to the EggOMatic, an odd-looking device that resembles a robotic version of … whatever hung off the backside of the Queen in Aliens. The EggOMatic occasionally deposits metallic eggs onto the conveyor belt at the top of the playing screen. The conveyor belt moves along the screen as play progresses, and if a wild symbol appears beneath the egg, the appropriate bonus feature is activated.
The symbols in the game are all very tired-looking robotic chickens standing on an array of perches. If you land a win – which entails landing at least three of the same symbol on one of the twenty pay lines, the robotic fowl are rewarded with a little blast of electro-juice that perks them up considerably, and they spew gold coins into your win pot. All twenty pay lines are in play at all times, but you can choose your coin value from 0.02 to 1.00 and your bet level from one to ten. Your stake per spin is 20 x coin value x bet level.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout is x5 your coin value x bet level for three of the little colourful robotic chicks. The big winner is the red rooster at x 1,000.
The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols to hopefully trigger wins. It also catches eggs as they fall from the conveyor, of which there are four varieties:
- Spreading Wild Egg – all adjacent and diagonal symbols become Wild
- Free Spins Egg – awards any number of free spins from seven to fifty
- Coin Wins Egg – awards a number of free coins
- Surprise Egg – can be any one of three eggs described above
EggOMatic is another beautifully animated game from NetEgg … sorry, NetEnt. They've haven't missed a trick here – even the pay table screens are animated in a 1950s public info style. The EggOMatic device is an eggs-cellent idea, even if looks a little … creepy, and there's a genuine thrill as the lain egg slides along the conveyor and you keep your feathers crossed for a wild symbol to appear. A great slot with the potential to become eggs-tremely popular, and anyone who disagrees can cluck off!
