Please pardon the poor graphics of the game. Those game designers back then didn't know how to make beautiful pictures for icon and symbols. Creating creative graphics at that time were a tardy task indeed without today's modern technology imaging, but never mind. Chook, the Eggsplorer, is the Wild symbol in this game, 5 of him pays 6000x the line bet. Being a Rooster, we cannot really expect much out of him, so this Chook doesn't double any wins, doesn't expand, doesn't know how to stack, except for the only way he knows how, but that's a different story altogether. Yep, Chook here is a dumb Wild. The Map is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays 100x the total bet, and getting 3 or more of this map triggers the Journey Feature game with 5 free spins. What? Only 5 free spins? Well, let's just say that somebody in the design team got chicken out and hid the rest at various continents. In the feature game, pick out 3 destinations to reveal prizes or more free spins, the ones that got hidden, and all wins are tripled but cannot be retriggered. The other symbols in the game pay from 3000x the line bet to 100x the line bet, all for 5 of each kind. Well, the Eggsplorer paytable is actually an average one, with a little on the good side.
A good paytable, a low paytable, or what's under the table, all doesn't matter much if the game cannot produce what it was designed to do. My few plays on this game weren't any good at all. I had to endure countless of bad non-paying and low-win spins, which drained my credits really fast, before the first Free Spins game could come. In one play, the first Free Spins game gave 9 free spins, which paid 46x my bet amount, but the second Free Spins game was better, with 11 free spins and paid a nice 84x my bet amount. But nothing remains good all the time. I had one game with 16 free spins but paid a low 28x my bet amount. Eventually, all my credits went for Chook's meals. A blardy hungry rooster that Chook, that much I can say.
