Ainsworth have created Barnyard Bonanza slot game to look like a fun-filled farm but without all the mess. Whether you have visited a farm or not, you will know that there is mud everywhere, but there’s no sign of anything dirty here – just a happy, clean farm theme. The reels of the game are trapped between a wooden fence with a windmill, horse and pig to the left and a huge heap of hay and a chicken to the right.
Look beyond the reels and you will see a beautiful farm house with freshly grown crops, various tools and sky high trees blowing in the wind. The symbols have been cleverly designed and feature; a farmer on a tractor, chicken, cow, horse, pig, scarecrow and barn. Other symbols are superbly created to look like various organic crops, such as; a 9 made from a watermelon, 10 from strawberries, J from blueberries, Q from corn, K from a potato and A from grapes. The golden egg symbol will come into action during the free spins bonus.
Reel-Y Good Stats
Featuring 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, Barnyard Bonanza allows you to play from a minimum of 0.20 a spin or as much as 2,000 a turn – now that is a staggering amount to spin each time and would suit high rollers. With such as high spinning stake also comes an even higher progressive jackpot amount. The chicken will lay a healthy 100,000 for matching 5 of a kind on your reels when betting max stakes. The second highest value symbol is the farmer on the tractor who drives along an impressive 12,500 amount.
Slot Game Bonuses
There are wilds on offer to help form winning paylines. The farmer on his tractor will substitute for all other symbols (bar the golden egg) to help you achieve wins where they may have otherwise been missed.
Go clucking mad with the chicken as she is the scatter symbol which awards free spins for triggering three on the reels.
With the free spins feature, there are five different spins and bonuses on offer:
- Cow feature offers 10 free spins with stacked cow symbols on all reels

Barnyard Bonanza is a medium to high variance slot machine with a return to player (RTP) percentage of 93.00%. We love the design and theme to this slot game as it offers something very different to what Ainsworth are renowned for creating.
The company offer many genres of slots from Jungle Monkeys to Mayan Gold – each offers something different and unique. Whilst the maximum stakes of 2,000 are enough to make your eyes water – the non-progressive jackpot that can be won is life-changing.
Wins didn’t fall often on the reels and the free spins were very hard to trigger. Big wins will come from the free spins feature – thanks to stacked symbols, wilds and multiplier potential of 5x your bet. We found the game to be thrilling and exciting with plenty of ways in which you can win.
