We’re heading down to the farm for a few spins on this funny, silly slot featuring farm animals and a whole lot of wind. The Windy Farm slot game is well named, and when the breeze kicks up it can blow in a whole lot of prizes for you, alongside tumbleweeds and the occasional chicken. So will you be growing yourself a crop of cash or will your fortunes blow away? Let’s take a look at our Windy Farm review.
Aside from needing to invest in a tarpaulin or two, Windy Farm looks like it’s in pretty good shape. A host of happy animals throng the barnyard behind the reels as well as a classic big, red American barn door to complete the picture. Alongside the classic 10 – K symbols your high-paying symbols are also caught up in the tempest: the pig, goat, a watering can, a horseshoe, a post box, a barrow of turnips and a horse, all rendered nicely in a cartoonish style. It’s a very colourful game, and the amusing expressions the animals make when you match a combination of symbols combined with the sound effects do a good job of creating a light-hearted mood.
While it’s all fun and games, there are still some pretty impressive prizes to be won. With 50 paylines on offer and a maximum possible bet of £/€/$125, it’s one of the higher wagering games out there, and with a maximum possible prize in the main game of 1500x your stake with one spin, it’s not just for small timers. All in all, you’re looking at an RTP of 95.7%, slightly less than average, so you need to take your chances to bet high when you can.
This game isn’t as dependent on its bonus rounds to offer up the cash, but it does have a couple of nice mechanics in play you may not have seen before. The wind is more than just a decorative feature: it decides where your wilds will fall. Keep an eye on the weather vanes and the tumbleweeds, because when they’re getting blown around it means the expanding wild, a chicken symbol, will expand upwards. Similarly, when the wind is calm, it means the symbol will expand downwards. These wilds are normal beyond that and will combine to offer a decent bonus as well as form part of other combos to complete them.
On top of the expanding wilds on offer is a simple free spins round. Grab three or more of the scatters on offer, a rather upset-looking bull, and you can claim seven free spins during which all the wilds payout with a 2x multiplier. There’s no way of reactivating the spins or adding to them during the round, though you can land more scatters to activate it again, so you could accuse the game of being a bit mean with them.
Windy Farm is a game that is cartoonish, whimsical and lighthearted but hides a secret stash of big wins under its corny exterior. The wind-dependent wilds are a nice feature, even if the rest of the bonuses aren’t much to write home about, and it’s hard to argue with 1500x your stake on one spin. If good, clean, low volatility fun is what you’re after, Windy Farm is full of it.
