Fruit Farm Slots
The farmer at the fruit farm is a very busy man indeed. Not only does he have to look after the usual batch of farmyard animals, but he also has to harvest a whole load of fruit too. These fruit symbols on the reels do give the game something of a classic feel, with grapes, plums, a series of berries and the cherry making an appearance. However, the primary symbols are the farmyard animals, including a pig, a chicken, a sheep and a cow, each with a humorous expression on their faces. The farmer is the highest paying symbol of all, while his red tractor activates the high paying feature round.
How to Win on Fruit Farm
The farmer, who looks so thin that he should be eating more of his own produce, is the highest paying symbol on the reels, worth an impressive 9,000 coins for the maximum 5 in a row, while the 2,500 coins for 4 in a row still far exceeds any other payout. This is also the wild symbol meaning it will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. Every time you land a win with the wild the payout will be doubled too – so there is little doubt that the thin farmer chap is the most sought after symbol in the game!
Cows and sheep are both worth 750 coins for 5 in a row, while the pig and the chicken pay 250. The fruit symbols are the lowest paying at Fruit Farm, with the apple leading the way at 400 coins. As with all slots in the Novomatic range, you’ll be offered a ‘double or nothing’ type gamble after every win.
Triple Wins in the Fruit Farm Bonus Round
The scatter symbol is the red tractor which the farmer depends on so much. You’ll trigger a win when just two or more of these scatters appear anywhere across the reels, with a minimum payout of 20 coins for landing 2 and a maximum payout of 5,000 coins when you’ve got a scatter on each of the five reels.
Land three or more scatters and you’ll also find yourself entering the free spins bonus feature. You’ll have 15 free games in total, but you’ll find a nice additional bonus awaiting you. Every time you land a payout, this will be multiplied by 3. The combination of the 15 free spins with the 3x multiplier makes for a potentially profitable feature.
Design and Setup
There is no doubt that Fruit Farm slot machine is a fun-filled slot. The backdrop to the reels shows bunting and a stage, so it’s clearly an open day at the farm, with both the tractor and the farmer in view. Each of the animal symbols has been given a delightful cartoon makeover, the boss eyed cow and the slightly confused looking chicken perhaps the standout characters. The animation when you land a win is eye catching and you won’t be able to help but smile when playing. The accompanying sound is a little too generic, but the upbeat nature of it does lend itself nicely to the slot.
This Novomatic designed slot is played on the somewhat standard 5×3 configuration. Perhaps surprisingly, there are only 10 win lines, again this is a standard for Novomatic games. You’ll also choose your coin value which you’ll simply multiply by the number of win lines to give you your total stake for each spin. Other options at the game include buttons to mute both the sound effects and the music, and the straightforward one-click auto play option.
You wouldn’t say that this is the most original slot you’ll ever come across. The base game, joined by a high paying wild and a scatter which activates the free spins bonus round is solid though very traditional. However, the humorous and entertaining theme gives this game a big boost, while the 15 free spins and the 3x multiplier found in the feature does make for a bonus game which you’ll want to land again and again.
