Henhouse Slots

Henhouse-slotHenhouse is a farm themed slot from RTG, a charming game that puts you right in the middle of life on a farm, the focus being mostly on the animals that are present there, along with one sworn enemy of the hens (the fox). The farmer, little chickens, the various other farm animals that are present, they all contribute to the charm offensive that this game puts on you. You’re going to love it, though it might be something that is easier to enjoy if you actually love clean fresh air and a hard day’s work on a farm.

You will find that Henhouse manages to be quite fun to play, not just because of its graphics but also because of the multiple features it comes with. You get all the major ones here, in this 5 reel/25 line game, including the wild symbol, scatters and free games. A $5,000 prize is on the line, plus two smaller progressive jackpots (Major and Minor).

Features of Henhouse

While the features offered in the game are quite common, they did take the effort to make the feature round a bit more fun to play, once you get it triggered. There are two major feature symbols present, one being the wild and the other a scatter.

The Hen symbol is the first one we’ll cover, a wild that can appear stacked on three out of five reels (2nd, 3rd and 4th). That’s about the only thing it will do, since it doesn’t offer prizes and there are no multipliers to take advantage of. Still, it does give the player the potential to cover three reels (9 positions) with wilds, which could prove hugely profitable. The Egg symbol can’t be replaced with a wild, as it is a scatter.

The Egg is the other major feature trigger, a scatter that will appear anywhere in the game and will both give you free spins and prizes with values of up to 200 times the bet that you made that round. That kind of large prize requires for all five scatters to be on the reels though.


Henhouse Pick Feature

The Egg scatter is responsible for this feature being triggered, the requirement being for 3+ symbols to appear in the same round, in any position. The feature begins with a picture of the henhouse, where a total of 9 hens are present. Picking hens, one by one, will reveal either Eggs, Rotten Eggs, Golden Eggs or Bonus Symbols. You start with one pick, but getting a regular egg will give you a second pick. The Rotten Egg will end the feature and get the free spins started.

You start out with 5 free spins, to which you add in the first round 3 spins for each regular Egg and 5 spins for each Golden Egg. The Golden Egg also triggers the second round when it appears.

The second round is more of the same, only this time you are given higher multipliers for the free spins. You get a 1x multiplier for each regular Egg (plus another pick) and a 2x multiplier for a Golden Egg (and access to round 3).

During round 3, you want to get the Bonus symbol, as it will act as an extra wild for the duration of the free spins.


Betting options and jackpots

The game’s options are easy to use, requiring from the player mostly a decision on the total value of the wager that should be used, going anywhere from $0.01 to $25. The paylines are normally all kept active.

The top jackpot in this slot is not terribly impressive, only offering $5,000 at the highest bet setting. The two progressive jackpots do contribute a bit, making it a better deal.

Design and symbols

The farm experience you get in this game is appealing, with clean and happy looking animals used as its symbols and with the green rolling hills that you can see in the background. Though life on a farm is far from being that happy and perfect, this game does manage to make it very appealing.

Symbols: Hen (wild), Egg (scatter, 200x the wager), Rooster (5,000x), Henhouse (2,500x), Farmer (1,000x), Fox (500x), Sheep (250x), Pig (250x), Chicken (100x), Boots (100x), Seed Bag (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Life on a farm isn’t for everyone, so I don’t expect all players to fall in love with this slot. Those that do have a connection or history with it might enjoy it, it doesn’t miss much when it comes to features.

This Henhouse slot is offered by all online casinos with RTG software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
