Released by the Australian software developer Ainsworth back in 2015, Barnyard Bonanza is a farm-themed video slot featuring cute animals ready to help you win some money. With the reels looking like they are made of wood, the slot takes you to a farm where a busy farmer drives a tractor and replaces all regular symbols thus enhancing your odds.
The Ainsworth release offers some nice cartoonish graphics and realistic animal sounds combined with generic sound effects typical of slot machines. It benefits from five free spins features, each of them having one of the animals appearing stacked on the reels. During free games, the golden egg icon can reveal extra free spins or a mystery prize. A maximum payout stands at 2,500 coins.
The reels are home to high paying symbols depicted as cows, horses, pigs, scarecrows and barns. The icons making up the lower ends of the paytable are represented by playing card symbols designed to match the theme of the game. For instance, 9s look like watermelons, 10s like strawberries and so on. The farmer assumes the role of Wild while the chicken represents Scatter.
Barnyard Bonanza is a 5-reel, 20- payline video slot. Before you set the reels in motion, select a coin denomination ranging between $0.01 and $100. With such a range, players are allowed to wager from only $0.20 up to $2,000 per spin.
Players can push the Spin button to spin the reels manually or activate up to 100 automatic spins.
To win a prize you have to match at least three symbols of a kind in a row on a payline left to right.
Farmer Wild replaces all symbols bar Scatter to help you complete more winning combinations.
Look out for Chicken Scatter as three of these trigger the free games feature offering 5 options. You can choose from Barn Feature with 14 free spins and stacked barn symbols, Scarecrow Feature offering 13 free spins with stacked scarecrow icons, Pig Feature granting 12 free spins and pig symbols appearing in stacks, Horse Feature awarding 11 free spins with horses stacked on the reels and Cow Feature awarding 10 free spins during which the top paying symbol cow appears in stacks.
Another special symbol is introduced during free games. It is a golden egg that awards a mystery prize worth up to 5x your total bet whenever it lands on the reels.
The game comes optimized for mobile play. If you want to take break from a busy life in a city, give Barnyard Bonanza a try on your smartphone or tablet on the go and friendly animals will reward you with some nice prizes.
