The title of this online slot game doesn’t reveal much of what it’s about, and once it loads chances are that it will be anything but what you may have imagined. This NextGen Gaming offering will take you deep into the countryside to what looks like an ordinary chicken coop; but as it turns out, it’s not quite so ordinary after all. In fact, it houses a golden rooster, which can potentially rain golden prizes on you too. The graphics here aren’t 3D or anything, but they aren’t offensive, and if you’re the type that likes the feel of the country, you will especially enjoy the backdrop. It paints a lovely picture of the rising sun bathing the crop field gold and creates an overall peaceful vibe.

As for the game’s layout, it features your common 5 reels and 3 rows, but it comes with the not-so-common number of 243 ways to win. Naturally, there is no way to regulate paylines here, but that doesn’t affect the betting range too severely, which is, in fact, fairly comfortable. The minimum bet will set you back a total of 25p per single spin and the maximum possible amount you will be able to wager is a total of £250 per spin. Note also the 2,000 coin jackpot. Cock-a-doodle-doo.

Where to Play

Special Features

Rooster

The rooster is the game’s Wild symbol, and it can only land on the middle reels 2, 3 and 4. It will be able to replace any of the other symbols without any exceptions, and that also includes the Scatter symbol. In doing so, the Wild can help complete winning sequences, however, it doesn’t offer any payouts of its own.

Scatter

Like the Wild symbol, the Scatter can also land only on the middle 3 reels, and it will be your key to triggering this game’s single special feature – the Freespins bonus. In other words, by landing 3 Scatters and/or Wilds at the same time, you will activate the bonus feature and receive a total of 10 free spins.

During the bonus round you will notice that the Wild and Scatter symbols merge to become the golden rooster Wild Scatter. This symbol will substitute for all other symbols when forming winning combos, just like the Wild did, and just like the Wild and Scatter in the base game, it will only land on the three middle reels.

What’s more, if you happen to land any winning combination of 5 symbols, the prize will be subject to a 5x multiplier. On top of that, you can potentially benefit from even more free spins by retriggering the bonus: all you have to do is land another 3 Wild Scatters during the same spin and you will get an extra 10 free spins on top of those you have left.

Verdict

Golden is overly simple and straightforward. Like many other NextGen Gaming slots, it’s all about the Freespins bonus here. It can potentially reward you with up to 400 times your stake on any of the free spins, but triggering it may not be that easy as this game has a tendency to eat away at your bankroll quicker than you’d think.
