Flora and Fauna
Nothing beats living of the fat of the land. Whether you are a city slicker who has never seen a cow in their life or a proud country-bumpkin, we all depend on farms to provide the food for our dinner tables. This slot machine celebrates the nurturing nutrition of Mother Nature by presenting 5 reels that are filled with sugar snap peas, parsnips and carrots, as well as some important tools for any keen vegetable patch attender such as a watering can and trowel.
The game’s simple nature makes it universally appealing, albeit a little bit tame when compared to some edgier video slot machines online. This farmyard slot does offer something a little bit different, however, since the game features a line-up of floral characters, each of which is designed to look like a different creature. From the looks of it, there is a dolphin flower, a dragon flower and a lion flower. We’re not quite sure what these flowery fauna are supposed to represent, but it does give the game an interesting twist.
With 25 fixed paylines, punters simply have to choose their total bet before they start spinning the reels of Fields of Fortune. The smallest wager that can be placed is 0.25 (0.01 per line) while the maximum possible bet is 125.00 (5.00 per line). This represents a decent amount of room for both casual spinners and high-rolling punters to enjoy what the game has to offer.
This low to middle variance slot machine actually has a lot to offer in terms of isolated wins. That is because the reels are configured to make sure that successful prize winning combinations fall upon the paylines on a frequent basis. The downside to this is the fact that the game won’t payout any whopping big prize multipliers. Instead, spinners will have to harvest many smaller wins with a top line bet multiplier worth 1,000x. Helping punters to complete those all-important winning sequences is an extended wild symbol that appears on the second, third and fourth reels of the slot machine.
Harvest the Bonus
Farming is all about putting in good day’s work to reap the rewards, and players will learn this thanks to the game’s unique round of bonus free spins. In order to activate the free games feature, punters need to find three or more scatter symbols on the reels in any position, after which they will have a choice between “Carrot Free Spins” with increasing multipliers up to x5 and “Parsnip Free Spins” with additional wilds added to the reels. In order for the multiplier or wilds to increase, players must find more scatters on the reels, each one representing a different time of the day. Once the “Good Night” scatter appears, the free games will end and punters will go back to the main game.
Players can improve their chances of triggering the free spins round of this slot machine by opting to play with a “Power Scatter”. This will double the total wager for each spin but it will mean that the bonus feature can be triggered by three scatters even if they appear slightly above or below the reels.
Relax with Nature
If you like the relaxing nature of the farm-yard setting, then you should check out some other slot machines with a similar theme. NetEnt’s Tornado: Farm Escape provides some stormy farmyard spins while Money Farm by GameArt offer stunning graphic and a unique golden egg wild icon. Speaking of unique bonus features, it must be said that Fields of Fortune stands alone for its original free spins feature with wilds and multipliers than increase with every scatter.
Worth a Spin?
Farming isn’t the most exciting of themes in the world of online slot machines and we can imagine that many punters are after epic adventures when they play video slots online. However, this wholesome and natural game will offer some unique winning opportunities thanks to its duo of free spins which get more and more rewarding as more and more scatters appear.
