Pretend you’re a real chicken who lives in a hen house where your eggs are constantly being stolen by bothersome two-legged critters while sneaky foxes wait outside, looking for openings in the walls so they may eat you. The situation on innumerable farms throughout the world is like something out of a horror film. Perhaps less so with the modern methods of egg mass production, but plenty of hens still get to experience dread like this every day. In the slot world, though, the age-old conflict between the chicken, the egg, and the fox takes on a lighter, more comedic tone. Swedish company Quickspin created the game, and it’s called Feasting Fox.
Feasting Fox seems like it could have been made by another studio; it’s cartoony but has an edge of realism that makes it seem like it may have been inspired by Pixar. The action takes place in a chicken coop, where hens and eggs are stored in separate boxes that correspond to the five reels and three rows of symbols on the slot machine. Feasting Fox’s soundtrack has a Fantastic Mr. Fox feel to it, adding to the lighthearted ambience of a house where a fox can be seen looking through the windows at the unsuspecting residents. While there are other fox-themed games available, such as Stakelogic’s Greedy Fox, Feasting Fox stands out thanks to its unique visual style. Similar to Big Bad Wolf Megaways in some respects, but presented in a very different fashion.
Feasting Fox has 20 paylines that may be played for prizes of 3 through 5 of a kind. There are three different Return to Player models, the highest of which has a return to player of 96.29% and a volatility rating of 4.25 out of 5. Bets range from 20 p/c to £/€100 per spin, with the RTP set at 63.93% in the base game and reset in free spins.
The five egg symbols in Feasting Fox pay the least, while the five hens and roosters (of which one is a mouse or rat in disguise) pay the most. A win line of five of a type pays 2-to-3 times the wager for low pays and 5-to-10 times the wager for high pays. The fox-shaped Wilds appear on all reels of the game. Wilds can replace any normal pay symbol to increase your chances of winning by up to 50 times your wager. Not only that, but wilds may even appear stacked, taking up a whole reel’s worth of space.
The Fox Is Hungry: Slot Bonus Rounds
Nudge, FOOOXX!!, Chicken Dinner Free Spins, and a bonus purchase round out the brief but tasty set of features in Feasting Fox.
Fox hands may reach up and shove a stack of 3 matching symbols so that it completely covers a reel when it landed partially covered. When this occurs, the FOOOXX!! function kicks in.
When a complete reel is covered by a 3-high stacked symbol, it becomes a wild and all other reels get a respin.
Fried Chicken with Free Slot Play
Players receive 10, 15, or 25 Chicken Dinner Free Spins when 3, 4, or 5 Coop scatter symbols appear in view. During the bonus rounds, the FOOOXX!! feature is always activated when a stack of symbols that is only half visible is nudged to cover the entire reel.
Players don’t have to wait for random triggers to enter the Chicken Dinner Free Spins round; they may pay to do so instead. When triggered by three or more scatter symbols, this feature will cost you 60 times your wager. Purchasing spins with a high RTP of 96.69% is possible.
Judgment of the Slotting Fox
Feasting Fox provides some insight into what a Pixar-meets-online-slots hybrid would look like. It employs a visual style rarely seen and loads up on animated extras to create an atmosphere that verges on that of a cartoon television show. Although one in which those who choose to do so may take a chance. Do you think it’s effective? It’s possible; maybe; it all depends on your needs. If you’re looking for something with the kind of big thrills, massive potential, and heaps of inventive features that would make a fox envy, Feasting Fox is probably not going to satisfy your cravings.
Feasting Fox, on the other hand, might work if a more subdued option (despite the relatively high volatility) is preferred. Feasting Fox is not a large slot, but Quickspin has put all of their effort into making it seem good. As previously said, Feasting Fox’s abundance of animations and humorous features make for a chicken coop that is as vibrant as any you’ll find in a video slot machine. The FOOOXX!! full reel wild and Nudge in Feasting Fox are similar to the studio’s former success Sakura Fortunes, thus they may appeal to anyone who like that game. The comparatively ‘low’ maximum win of 2,437x the wager in Feasting Fox further links it to previous Quickspin games like Sakura Fortunes.
Not the most striking of figures, but it fits in rather well with the rest of Feasting Fox’s catalog. It’s hard to see courageous individuals preparing for battle and then engaging in this game. Feasting Fox is tailored at players who want to take it easy, at least in comparison to other slots, relax, and enjoy a lighthearted game that gets right to the point without being too intense.
