Game overview

In this game, you’re a mischievous fox in a hen house, but instead of looking for your lunch in the form of a plump, feathery chicken, you’re in search of worthy wins with the goal of matching up symbols on the playing grid.

Chicken Fox Jr is played on five reels with 20 paylines and offers a maximum payout of 2,733x your stake. It has a return to player (RTP) of 95% and offers potential access to a free spins bonus round (which many players will agree is the main highlight of the game,) where it’s possible to rack up some bigger wins.

How to play

Like most slot machines online, it’s relatively easy to get the hang of Chicken Fox Jr. Simply adjust your bet for each spin using the coin button found below the playing grid. When you’re ready to play, click on the white arrow spin button and wait and see if you land any matches (three or more of the same symbol.)

On the bottom left-hand side of the screen, you’ll find a sound button that allows you to mute the music and sound effects if you prefer to play in silence. There’s also a menu button that will take you to a quick explanation of the rules and the game’s different symbols, an autoplay set-up screen where you can select how many autospins you’d like to make, another screen for adjusting your bet and some more in-depth sound settings.


Chicken Fox Jr features a classic cartoon design with lots of colors and adorable characters. The symbols on the reels include tractors, pigs, goats and plenty of baby chicks, hens and roosters, each representing a different cash prize. The bigger the chicken, the bigger the prize! The wild symbol is a smiling woman holding a freshly baked pie (this symbol can replace any other symbol on the reels to form more winning combinations and boost prizes.) There’s also a golden egg bonus scatter symbol that triggers the free spins bonus round when three or more land anywhere on the reels during a single spin.

The game’s cheeky banjo soundtrack with random farm animal noises is a joy to listen to, perfectly complementing its visuals and setting the scene for a fun session of playing slots online.


Along with the classic wild symbol as explained above, Chicken Fox Jr has a second wild that appears during the bonus round. Appropriately, it’s the fox – and there are two versions of him. The x2 version doubles your wins. The foxes can also catch chickens, awarding you their cash value. Fox Jr might also pop up when playing the base game, where he’ll either replace all low-value symbols with more profitable symbols or throw in an extra scatter symbol.

Bonuses and jackpots

Triggering the free spins bonus round with three golden egg symbols means you’ll instantly be awarded eight free spins. Land four or five, and you’ll be awarded 15 and 30 free spins, respectively. It’s also possible to re-trigger the bonus and collect eight more free spins.
