Escape the smog and grime of the city and take a trip to the country in Golden Farm. Created by Push Gaming, this 5 reel, 25 payline slot comes with a replicating feature that can fill 3 rows with the same symbol. If that symbol is a wild, you’ll be awarded a re-spin which can deliver some spectacular results. Playable across all devices, hop on the proverbial tractor from between 25p and £100 per spin.
Push Gaming is gaining a reputation for crafting superbly illustrated slots and Golden Farm is a case in point – set against a rural backdrop complete with barns and windmills, the reels include an assortment of prize crops and farmyard animals.
Look out for an apple, pear, squash, pumpkin and tomato alongside higher value ducks, chickens, goats, pigs and cows. The top paying symbol is the farm girl who’ll land you between 20 and 600 times your line bet if you land between 2 and 5 in a payline. Joining them is the farm lad who is the game’s wild, substituting for all other symbols. Like his female equivalent he offers payouts of up to 600 coins.
On to the features – first up is the Replicating Reels feature. During each spin, 1 reel will be highlighted at random. If a fully stacked symbol lands and fills that entire reel, it will replicate and fill the 2 adjoining reels too (if it lands on reel 1 then reels 2 and 3 will be filled too. Likewise reel 5 which will fill reels 3 and 4). The payout will then be made with the 3 fully formed reels in place.
Even better is if the stacked wild lands in the highlighted reel – not only will the wild replicated onto the 2 adjacent reels, you’ll also be awarded a re-spin with the 3 stacked wild reels held in place. This offers some fantastic winning opportunities. This is known as the Wild Respin feature.
There aren’t any free spins or other extras on offer in Golden Farm – don’t be too put off by that though as the replicating reels are a more than adequate substitute. We didn’t land the replicators too often but they paid dividends when they did hit, especially the stacked wilds where the really big wins are on offer.
Boasting excellent visuals, a catchy soundtrack and 2 impressive features there’s much to enjoy in this rural escapade. Even if you’re a city slicker, the wild reels can turn this escape to the country a golden one. I consider it to be a medium to high variance offering with 3 wild reels in the Wild Respin feature to key to harvesting a huge win. If you like the theme, you have NetEnt’s Tornado Farm Escape and Playson’s Bumper Crop which are good options.
