Barnyard Bonanza Slot Review

Ainsworth has really pulled out all the stops to produce the Barnyard Bonanza slot machine. This slot features a farmyard theme (as you would have guessed from the title) and is suited to both mobile and online slot players.

Barnyard Bonanza sees wonderful 3D thematic graphics blended with the customary high playing card symbols to produce an overly enjoyable slot, at least visually.

The gameplay is a little basic, and might put a few players off; one must remember that Ainsworth is only a small-scale developer of online slot machine games, though, so we can’t be unduly harsh on them for that.

Developers

Ainsworth is a big name in the land-based casino world, but when it comes to the online casino world, they are still finding their feet, so to speak. Ainsworth’s slot machine games tend to be rather samey, and feature low-quality graphics. That isn’t the case with their new Barnyard Boogie slot.

Ainsworth’s rather messy wagering menus remain in place for this game, and the special features as bland as ever, but we’ve come to expect that from them. It is nice to see Ainsworth develop a slot which is just at home on mobile gaming devices as it is in the online casino world.

How to play

As we’ve said, the wagering menus in this slot leave a lot to be desired. Players can use the setting cog to adjust their bets, and the number of lines they play with.

The buttons look out of place when playing the slot online because they have been designed to cater to mobile users.

Barnyard Bonanza does not allow players to alter any of the 20 lines which appear in this 5-reel slot, although they can choose bets which stem from a floor of $0.20 per spin, up to a ceiling of $100 a pop.

Features

Wild symbols: Known as substitute symbols in this game, wilds can take the shape of a tractor. When they appear on the reels, they can substitute for all other symbols in the slot, save for scatters. They are also the best paying symbols in the Barnyard Bonanza slot machine game.

Scatter symbols: Players can trigger a free spins bonus in the game if they land the chicken on the reels. You need at least 3 chickens to bag scattered wins.

Three, four or five of these symbols can see you win 2x, 5x, or 50x your total bet, respectively. These symbols can trigger a free spins feature.

Golden eggs: As a bit of a side quest in this slot, you may wish to keep your eyes peeled for golden eggs. These symbols can offer you instant cash multipliers when they crop up on the reels. Players can bag wins worth 5x their total bet, as well as land a total of 3 free spins when these symbols appear.

Free spins bonus: The free spins bonus is about all there is to rant and rave about in terms of special features in the Barnyard Bonanza slot.

When the free spins bonus round is activated (either via the chicken scatter or golden eggs) players will get to choose how they would like their spins delivered.

If players choose the Cow, Horse, or Pig bonuses, they will bag 10, 11, or 12 free spins Choose the Scarecrow or Barn bonus and you’ll get 14 or 14 free spins.

Note that whatever feature you choose, that particular bonus’ icons will appear stacked in the feature. The lower the number of spins you accept, the more the stacked symbols will be worth.

Maximum pay-outs

The top jackpot in this slot is worth 1,000 coins, and it is a non-progressive jackpot in nature. This prize can be won if you land 5 of the wild symbols on any payline in the game.

Again, this is a rather primitive jackpot, triggering in a rather basic manner. There is nothing terribly original to shout about here.

Summary

If you are fortunate enough to trigger the free spins bonus, Barnyard Bonanza can be a hoot. If you like 3D graphics and farmyard themes, this slot is nifty, too.

If you want a cutting edge slot will thrills galore, then you are likely to be left feeling underwhelmed with what Barnyard Bonanza has to offer you.
