Funky Fruits Farm is an online video slot that is loaded with nicely depicted symbols, funny music and a sweet interface. There is also sweet animation in the form of an amusing gardener that entertains with his inquisitive movements.
Progressive Jackpot: Yes
There are a lot of fruit-themed online slots available in the industry right now. Adding to that extensive list is Funky Fruits Farm, which is an adorable game and the reels are set against a bright blue sky across which clouds are streaming up high.
Funky Fruits Farm sets the stage for your gameplay with an adorable intro video that shows the watermelon and orange running away from the farmer, who passes on his tractor. Then it’s game time. The 5x3 reel grid is geared so that all 15 symbols occupy a different wooden packing crate, with the game logo sitting above the reels.
The grid sits in the foreground of a farm, with water towers and barns in the background under a blue sky, across which white clouds scroll from right to left. Every now and then, the clumsy farmer sprints across the screen, his mini tractor pursuing him. The graphics are crisp and there’s a decidedly fun element to the proceedings.
You’ll find all the usual controls along the bottom of the screen. Use the + and - arrows to determine the number of lines you wish to play, from one to 20, and decide on a line bet, which goes from 0.01 to 1. The maximum bet per spin, therefore, is 20. The game also features an autoplay mode, which lets you play 10, 25, 50 or 99 successive spins. You can set autoplay to continue uninterrupted until you hit a special feature, i.e. a round of free spins.
Funky Fruits Farm is a charming online video slot, which is something that you really can’t say for all games that are themed after fruits. This one gets away with the tired theme because the fruits are so darn lovable, and because the game includes wilds, scatters, free spins and multipliers. Give it a spin!
The symbols in Funky Fruits Farm are delightful. They include a dungaree-clad, mustachioed farmer who is chewing on a stalk of wheatgrass, a grumbling lemon, a grinning orange, two cherries, a pineapple and a watermelon. The latter two symbols work on an “of a kind” principle, as do the lemon and orange. There are also a number of low-value playing cards: 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace.
There’s a wild symbol, which is stacked on all reels and can appear on the reels during the base game and bonus round. The wild has the ability to take the place of all others in the game except the farmer, who is the scatter, and it also doubles wins in which it is involved.
Moreover, there are different pay-outs for two or more wilds on an active line. Indeed, you can win 10 for two, 250 for three, 2,500 for four and the 10,000 top prize for five on the trot.
Funky Fruits Bonus
This can be a really lucrative bonus game and you can trigger it by landing three or more of the farmer scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll receive eight free spins at first with a 2x multiplier but you also get the chance to pick two out of the five fruit characters to receive more spins and multipliers – the maximum you can get is 33 spins with a 15x multiplier.
Landing another three scatter symbols while in the bonus game would win you another 15 free spins and there’s no limit to the number of times that can happen.
The wild is a stacked wild in Funky Fruits Farm and this means that each reel contains a column of wilds on top of each other. If you are lucky enough to cover an entire reel with wilds it’s obviously a big winner.
