EggOMatic by NetEnt

**Warning! This review is covered in egg yolks**

Get ready to scramble your way to big wins with EggOMatic, the egg-citing online slot from NetEnt! This game is egg-ceptional in every way, with a steampunk art style that’s eggs-quisite, a premise that’s egg-straordinary, and bonus features that are egg-stra special. It’s no yolk that EggOMatic has cracked the code, so what are you waiting for? Let’s get cracking and give this game a spin!

This game looks like someone snuck a box full of pastels into Tim Burton’s design kit and he didn’t notice before it was too late. It’s populated by a series of somewhat tired-looking, ever-so-slightly in need of repair, robotic chickens in various shades of bright pastel colours all hanging out on their mechanical, steampunk roost. To their right, the EggOMatic itself chugs and steams away to produce a conveyor belt of eggs filled with bonuses, free spins and spreading wilds, all waiting for the cocky Wild Rooster to show up on the reels. To add to the whimsical nature of the game, the info menu plays out like an old-timey movie reel, complete with flickers and vignettes. The soundtrack is sweet and whimsical, punctuated by the creaks, groans and occasional sparks of the mechanical chickens.

The game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. There are 10 different types of chicken characters including five hatchlings and five, shall we say, fully constructed chickens: a red-and-white rooster with a crown tail; a glorious purple hen who wears her heart on her chest; a youthful, wide-eyed green-and-white chicken; a propeller-tailed blue baby rooster; and a small, sad brown chicken. You can easily see the various paylines represented by lines of electricity by hovering your mouse or tapping on the out-of-order numbers running down both sides of the mechanical roost. The Wild is the game’s eleventh character, the shiny, gunmetal-blue, puffed-chested Rooster, ready to boost your wins. This Wild Cock not only substitutes for any other symbol on the paylines, but he also activates the EggOMatic bonuses.

Eggs are magic!

Along the top of the roost runs a conveyor belt, where the EggOMatic machine chugs out one new egg each spin. These eggs contain coin bonuses, free spins, spreading wilds or a surprise. Anytime a rooster wild lands, he will crack open whichever egg is atop the reel he landed in to give you the relevant bonus.

  • Spreading wilds: Easily the most exciting type of egg, the spreading wilds do exactly that. They spread to turn all symbols surrounding the original wild into more wilds, giving you multiple chances for more wins.
  • Free spins: When Monsieur le Coq cracks open one of these, you receive anywhere between 7 and 50 free spins. Each free spin gives you another chance at landing one or more wilds and opening more eggs, including more free spins.
  • Coins: These eggs are packed with straight-up cash rewards. The amounts vary and are random, but you could potentially open a coin egg containing up to 2500 coins. Talk about eggciting!
  • Surprise: Have you ever had a double-yolked egg? Well, this one will give you just as big a surprise when it cracks open. This egg can produce any one of the other bonuses, randomly giving you
  • free spins, spreading wilds or cash rewards.

EggOMatic can be found at any online casino operating in South Africa that offers NetEnt games.

EggOMatic is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Mac OS, HTML5 and Android.

This is a medium-volatility game with an RTP of 96.48%, so it needs a little strategic thinking when placing bets. You can select coin values at 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20. 0.50 and 1.00, and can bet up to 10 of these at once. Before playing, set a budget and time limit to avoid overspending. Determine how much you are willing to spend and stick to it. Set a time limit to avoid getting carried away and spending too much time playing.

Not gonna lie, this game made this reviewer hungry for more (also for an omelette, but you don’t need to know that). This game has everything, including whimsy, comedy and wacky eggcitement (last one, we promise). Try this one out if you’re after a (sorry) cracking good time!
