The Wombat says: Sweet Harvest slot takes us to the countryside, where the water clean, the ladies are buxom and the air smells of fresh manure. This wombat loves a bit of the the rural life (we’ve just finished playing on our Golden Rooster slot machine). I’m a bit of a country bumpkin myself.
You know what they say: you can take a wombat out of the country-side, but you can never take the country-side out of the wombat.
This farm-themed slot from Microgaming (the people behind the Mayan Princess slot) makes a nice and wholesome change from the usual Chinese or Irish themed games, so get spinning. Before you know it, you’ll be prancing around like Billy Ray Cyrus singing Achy Breaky Heart.
Sweet Harvest Game Play
Sweet Harvest it’s a solid, no nonsense slot with 5 reels and 20 pay lines. The main symbols on the reels are made up of the good people who work the land; the hard-working farmer with a basket of fruits, some sort of country gigolo who looks like he’s been grafting away on his abs in the gym every day rather than ploughing those fields (is that the dude from the Jungle Jim slot?), and then there’s the farmer’s daughter, a young lass who really does cultivate huge tracts of land.
And speaking of ripe melons, the other symbols in this slot are the juicy sweetcorn and plump pumpkins, plus as you’re lower paying symbols you’ll find the usual 10, J, Q, K and As.
There are only 2 bonuses in Sweet Harvest slot and the the first feature is reel-based. To set this one off you’ll need to land the Harvest Basket symbol on either reel 2 or 4. Getting 1x or more of these bountiful symbols will scoop you an instant win of between 2x and 10x times your bet, on top of your normal winnings.
The second Bonus feature is Free Spins. Trigger these beauties by landing get 3x or more of the Barn Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. There’s a cool twist to the spins too; if you manage to get barn symbols on reel 1 and 2, but not a third symbol, the first 2 reels will lock while the remaining 3 reels re-spin, giving you extra chances to trigger the bonus. Cheers Microgaming!
When you do finally land those 3 Barn Scatters, you’ll see a nice little animation in front of the barn that sees the young couple canoodling in an upstairs window while the farmer searches for them. We like the Benny-Hill-like feel!
After this saucy sequence ends you’ll receive 12 Free Spins. During the Spins the country gigolo and country babe symbols act as Wilds and will also become stacked. Any winning combination where the Cowboy and Cowgirl symbols are next to each other will also scoop you a 2x multiplier on your winnings. The Free Spins can be retriggered so it’s worth to being on the lookout for more Barn symbols.
We like this game. Maybe it’s because this wombat loved nothing more than a roll in the hay in his youth, who knows? OK, it hasn’t got the most spectacular features, but it’s an honest, down to earth ‘what-you see is what you get’ kind of game with a fun soundtrack and pastoral theme.
Feel like playing an innocent slot? Then this might be the right game for you.
