Treading similar ground in the ‘jolly farmer’ stakes to rivals Sheriff and Betsoft are Playtech with this happy food-themed slot, Funky Fruits Farm.
Set on a good ol’ north American farm, our farmer friend stands by the reels cheering you on (at least, we think he’s cheering us on) with pitchfork in hand as runaway tractors fly past. You get the picture.
On the Reels…
A 5-reel slot, Funky Fruits Farm comes with 20 paylines and a nice touch in the symbols: all the icons appear on wooden crates which tumble from the sky and land on the reels. The vibe of an ambient country farm is certainly apparent on the reels.
The farmer is busy harvesting his fruity crop, and it’s the fruits of his labour that forms the basic icons on the reels: cherries, lemons, oranges, pineapples and melons find just enough space on the reels with some 9-through-Ace icons making up the numbers.
Find the Farmer to Earn up to 33 Free Spins
The Wild green splat substitutes for all regular symbols other than the Farmer and all wins are doubled. Not only that – Wilds come stacked on all reels.
Three or more farmer icons anywhere on the reels triggers the Funky Fruits bonus round with up to 33 free spins ready to be won.
There’s Also a 2x Multiplier
To start with you will win 8 free games with a 2x multiplier. But by picking two out of five fruits in the warehouse you will win yourself further spins and multipliers.
Bag yourself more spins (15 at a time) if you hit a further three farmers. Like Playtech’s sports-themed Rocky slot, these can be retriggered infinitely.
With its quirky graphics, nice animation (although not on the scale of this developer) and comic touches, Funky Fruits is almost up there with Sheriff Gaming’s food-themed Fortune Farm. Sheriff’s customary great graphics and animation are probably a little more polished and it’s a great alternative title.
Meanwhile, while we’re on the Sheriff tip, check out another farm-themed slot in the form of Lucky Farmer, which features amazing graphics and some nice bonus features.
