November is the ideal time to give Thanksgiving themed slots a spin. At Queenplay, we’ve got a fantastic games portfolio, with plenty of suitable titles. Here you can learn about our three slots for Thanksgiving before heading over to the casino to try them for yourself.
The first slot to look at is none other than NetEnt’s Wild Turkey. Released in 2013, the slot was given a new lease on life in 2019 following a reboot that made it available on all devices from tablets to smartphones.
Wild Turkey is as Thanksgiving as they come. Played out on a 5x3 grid, the slot offers 20 fixed paylines. The visuals are all high quality, with a rhythmic drum beating away in the background. The symbols are divided into two tiers, lower paying royals from 10 to A and five higher paying Turkey symbols. The most rewarding of the lot is the Red Headpiece Turkey, which pays out 2.5, 30 or 200 times your stake for landing 3, 4 or 5 in a combination.
One of the most appealing features of Wild Turkey is how it is simultaneously simple and engaging. The NetEnt slot does not have an abundance of mechanics or fancy game features in place. Instead, it only has one, which is the Free Spins bonus round.
To activate this, you’ll need to land on 3, 4 or 5 Totem Head symbols, to trigger 15, 30 or 60 Free Spins. The Totem Head is both the scatter and wild symbol, substituting for all the standard symbols to form a winning combination.
In the Free Spins bonus round, every wild that falls will turn the entire reel wild. Thus, giving you more chance to win big. Plus, whenever you stack a wild reel, you will also receive an additional 2 free spins. There is no limit to how many free spins you can re-trigger.
Wild Turkey has a maximum win amount of up to 4,000x your total stake on every spin or free spin. Your stake can range from as little as €/£0.20 to a maximum bet of €/£100 per spin. Lastly, the RTP is around 96.6%, which is slightly above the industry average.
The Great Chicken Escape
The next slot to look at is none other than Pragmatic Play’s The Great Chicken Escape. With 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines, the slot captures what Thanksgiving is all about… through the eyes of a bird.
The Pragmatic Play slot takes place in a chicken prison camp where you’re on the same team as the prisoner birds. The task at hand is to assist the poultry in fleeing their impending doom. The Great Chicken Escape accepts wagers ranging from as little as €/£0.20 to a maximum bet of €/£100 whilst the RTP is 96.5%.
The theme of the slot is cartoonish and quite humorous. To complement this, the slot includes the royal symbols J, Q, K and A along with four different chickens. The most rewarding chicken is the Sergeant Chicken, which pays out 1, 5 or 15 times your total stake for landing 3, 4 or 5 across a payline. Charlie the Chick is the slot’s wild symbol, substituting for all standard symbols and it only requires two symbols on adjacent reels to trigger a win.
There are three different random bonus features in this Thanksgiving themed slot, namely, Guard Dog Wilds, Chicken Run Wilds and the Care Package features. These are triggered completely at random during any spin. They can result in additional wilds on several reel positions, entirely wild reels, or Golden Eggs that then transform into high paying symbols.
The Great Turkey Escape’s main bonus features are triggered through the map scatter symbols. The bonuses are triggered randomly if you land 3 or 4 scatters but if you land 5, you will be able to choose from them. The five different features are as follows:
- Secret Tunnel – Pick a chest to reveal a prize amount or uncover the Mystery Tunnel, which will trigger one of the other features.
- Poultry In Motion – Choose from the golden eggs to work your way along a map, collecting prizes along the way until you reach the end or find ‘Collect’.
- Get Clucky Free Spins – This awards ten free spins with an extra wild in play that increases the win multiplier by 1x each time it lands.
- To The Other Side – This awards ten free spins with each wild symbol collected and stored on the right hand side; on the final spin all the wilds are returned to the reels in random positions.
- Big Money Bonus – Spinning barrels are awarded randomly and you can collect the prizes they award until ‘Collect’ is found.
Before the feature starts, it is also possible to gamble for a better one, but you run the risk of ending up with a worse one.
With so many features on offer, this slot promises to provide hours of fun as you spin the reels attempting to trigger them all.
Last but not least, Sizzling Spins from Play’n Go is the ultimate slot to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving. If you’re short of an appetite, you’re going to want to play this game to build up that hunger!
The slot is played out on a 5x3 grid which offers 243 ways to win. Better yet, the rows are not fixed so the game can expand to offer 1,024 ways to win if you’re lucky enough to activate the free spins bonus round. Sizzling Spins accepts wagers ranging from as little as €/£0.20 to a maximum stake of €/£100. The RTP is around 96.5%, which is highly attractive.
The theme of the slot is a full-on BBQ with an awesome rock soundtrack playing in the background. What’s brilliant about Sizzling Spins is the presentation of the slot. All of the game’s symbols are thematic and they are all different foods. Naturally, the five lower paying symbols are all vegetables – corn, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and cucumber slices. The four higher valued symbols are all delicious meat dishes – ribs, prawns, chicken wings and sausages. The Chilli symbol is the slot’s scatter symbol. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of these will trigger the Free Spins bonus round with 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively.
As mentioned, during the bonus round, an additional row is added making it a 5x4 grid with 1024 ways to win. The scatter remains important during this feature, as collecting them will increase your multiplier. If you manage to collect 3 Chilli scatters, you’ll trigger a 2x multiplier boost. Claiming 6 will boost that total to 3x whilst collecting 9 Chilli scatters brings your multiplier to 5x your payout amount. As such, by the end of the free spins round, even the lower value symbols can deliver some astronomical wins. If you’re a fan of food and can’t wait for Thanksgiving dinner, then there is no doubt that this is the slot for you.
At Queenplay, we believe that these three slots truly capture what Thanksgiving is all about. November 25th is fast approaching but there is no reason why you can’t enjoy these games in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, as well as in the weeks and months that follow. With turkey themed slots, escaping chickens and food, food, food, we hope that these games will put you in the right frame of mind to have a fantastic holiday and enjoy the Thanksgiving spirit whenever
