Here’s a game that will put a big smile on your face the minute you first look at it. We’re down on the farm and this Novomatic online slot can definitely have you winning some big prizes in its bonus round.
The look of the game really is great. There’s a big brown picket fence that the five reels and three rows of symbols are set on. The colourful symbols feature the animal occupants of the farm and they seem to be poking their heads out of a circular porthole.
The game has a total of 25 paylines and that’s a fixed amount. Just how much you decide to stake on each spin of the reels is the big decision here. Either decide to go for a low stake to start with and hope to get a few profits or go for a higher amount and see how it goes. It all depends on your financial budget and how much you can safely afford to stake on each spin of the reels. Playing the game will cost you between £0.50 and £100 so you should be able to find a level that suits you for this slot game.
As I’ve already mentioned, I’m really impressed with the look of this game. The soundtrack isn’t too bad either and didn’t have me quickly heading for the mute button. Symbols in the game are a mixture of those that are theme-related and the nine to Ace playing card symbols. Even they seem to have a splash of paint on them. Theme-related symbols are a rooster, a pig and a cow.
The wild symbol here is the red barn. This can substitute for other symbols to get you some important wins. Always handy if you’re in that frustrating position where you’re one matching symbol away from a decent win. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbol which is the farmer’s tractor. We don’t actually get to see the farmer, perhaps it’s market day. This tractor does play a bit part in the bonus game as will be explained shortly. You can get wins of 200x your total bet if five of them appear anywhere on the reels.
The game features the Reel Refill format which can really help get you some wins. When a winning combination comes along the symbols responsible for that disappear. The gap needs to be filled so others from above fill those vacant places. If this gets you a win, then the whole process is repeated until you don’t get a win. It’s almost like a free spins round in a way.
It’s always a good idea to learn as much about the game as possible, so have a good look through the paytable. That gives you all the info you need to know including how much winning combinations pay, how the bonus round is triggered etc. Also have some free games to see just how everything in ‘Cash Farm’ plays out.
For a change the bonus round isn’t of the free spins variety. Instead it’s a pick and win feature and it’s triggered by getting three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Once that is done then your job is to choose from a series of bales of straw. Doing so puts you in with a chance of getting some cash prizes and multipliers. You can keep on picking the bales of straw until you locate the dollar sign which ends the bonus round. You then collect your winnings and then return to the base game.
There’s also a gamble feature here that can see you double a win. Just be careful with this as it’s an easy way of giving back your win and that’s not what you’re playing the game for is it?
I really like the look of this game and it always puts a smile on my face when I start playing it. Some might think it looks a bit simple/too cartoonish but I reckon it does the trick. That smile has continued while playing it too as I’ve had some good wins playing this. The bonus round is a refreshing change with the pick ‘em format rather than the usual diet of free spins. This is definitely recommended.
