Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar Review
The original Chicken Fox became a fan-favourite amongst slot players, so much so, that Lightning Box decided to create a sequel with Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar.
Amazingly, this game included the beloved free spins round but added a unique feature called Skillstar to shake up the gameplay.
Just like the original, this slot is set in the same bar but with a lighter tone in the background. There are also diamonds around the slot instead of bags of money.
All the familiar characters return such as the goat, pigs, chickens and the fox. It would've been nice if the developers enhanced these characters a little bit, but they don't look too bad.
The typical farm music is back with a banjo playing in the distance with animal noises doing the backing.
Without Skillstar, the gameplay of this slot is identical to the original. However, the addition of Skillstar adds more excitement through an interactive game but there is no consequence or reward for this feature.
At the bottom of the screen is where you'll find the menus with the spin button to the far right and bet level just left of it.
Thankfully, there is a higher RTP than the original, but it's still lower than expected at 95.61%. There is also a high volatility level leading to bigger wins, but this occurs less frequently.
Amazingly, the maximum win is increased quite a lot with 18,950x your stake which can be achieved through the free spins.
The Skillstar is definitely the star of this slot - but we were hoping that it would do more in the game. Perhaps, if there was a bonus feature like Skillstar but there were prizes for succeeding. Despite this, Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar is still entertaining enough and worth a spin if you like something different.
