Lucky Farm Bonanza is a 6×5 high volatility video slot from B Gaming with an agricultural theme. This game features an RTP of 96%, bonus round free spins, and a tumbling effect to help the wins keep rolling on in.
Four or more barn scatters trigger a free spins bonus round. Four barns gives you 10 free spins, five gives you 20, and six gives you 30. In addition, you can earn extra free spins (5 at a time) during the free spin rounds, when an additional three scatters land.
Another feature of the free spin wilds is the basket of vegetables multiplier. This symbol is not found in the base game.
How it works is, when you have a winning combination, once the tumbling feature is complete, the value of your wins is totaled up, and then multiplied by the value of all the multiplier symbols on the screen.
Bonus Buy and 2x Chance
For the bargain price of only 100 x your base bet, you skip all the lever pulling and go straight to the free spins. When you do the bonus buy, your next spin is guaranteed to have at least four scatters, triggering the bonus round. From there it plays out like normal.
There is also a Chance x 2 mechanism, where for a modest increase in the size of your bet you can increase your chance of hitting free spins during the base game.
For centuries now people have left the farm to seek out a better life in the cities, where you can find higher paying jobs and more opportunity for social and economic advancement. And yet there is something very attractive about rural life, just tending to your animals and planting vegetable gardens. Perhaps now the pendulum is starting to swing the other way, with the extreme costs of living in the city forcing people to seek alternative living situations, and an increasing amount of jobs going remote.
Small family or hobby farms are also more likely to follow a sustainable ecological model, with minimal carbon emissions and a more holistic approach to growing food than large factory farms.
Any time you have a winning combination, the symbols disappear, and are replaced by the ones above them and new ones which fall from the sky. This can lead to additional wins being triggered on the same round.
Overall we were quite pleased with Lucky Farm Bonanza, and not only because we yearn for a simpler way of life with fresh air and an open countryside at our disposal. The graphics and artwork are all well done, with some of the symbols like the farmer with his big bushy beard or the angry looking chicken being down right hilarious. We also enjoyed the tumbling mechanic where paying symbols disappear and get replaced by new ones falling from the sky.
In terms of bonus features, having the multipliers during the free spins is a nice way to pump out some jackpots. And it is kind of neat how this game doesn’t have any paylines but instead just awards based on the number of symbols.
The one thing we’re unsure about with regards to this game is where is the bonanza aspect? A bonanza is a sudden increase in wealth, so does the farmer find some buried gold or how does he and/or we strike it rich? You’re not going to break the bank selling tomatoes that is for sure.
Nevertheless, despite that one inconsistency, this is a very well made slot that gamblers should enjoy.
