Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from 10 through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.16 and x5 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on a single spin.
Next up, goats, pigs and tractors depict the high value symbols, offering between x1 and x13.33 the player’s preferred bet.
Four different chicken characters can also appear on the reels, displaying multiplied bet amounts between x0.5 and x6.66 the player’s bet.
Wild farmer’s wives can appear in the game, substituting for all symbols other than the golden egg scatter.
WIld foxes are also available, substituting for all chickens in the base game.
Golden egg scatters can drop into play, triggering eight, 15 or 30 free spins if three, four or five land on the same spin respectively.
Finally, stellar scatters can drop into play, triggering the stellar cash bonus game if three or more land on the same spin.
During the free spins, fox wilds can appear with x5 multipliers to be applied to any win they contribute to. If foxes land on the same spin as chicken symbols, they will collect the chicken’s respective value.
White eggs can also drop into play during the free spins, awarding between one and five extra spins if collected by a standard fox wild, or between five and 25 if collected by a x5 fox.
If a standard fox wild lands on the reels with nothing to collect, it will provide one additional free spin. If this occurs with a x5 fox, five extra spins will be provided.
The game has a free-to-play optional mini game that does not provide any wins or affect the game’s RTP. This is the Skillstar feature, which challenges players to control a fox as it tries to catch golden eggs. Collecting a certain amount of eggs could place players on the global leaderboard.
With the stellar cash bonus game, six levels are available. With the first six levels, players must choose one of three stellar symbols, revealing either red crosses, green arrows or a multiplied bet amount.
Players must select a stellar symbol on each turn, with red crosses causing them to lose a life and green arrows progressing them to the next level. Any multiplied bet amounts that are revealed will be awarded to the player before returning them to the base game.
The bonus round will end if a total of three red crosses are revealed, but if players can make it past six game rounds then they will be taken to the final jackpot game mode.
With this feature, players must select from an assortment of stellar symbols which have hidden jackpot values behind them. Once having revealed three identical jackpot values, players will be awarded the respective jackpot prize.
Jackpot prizes available include mini, minor, major and grand variants.
