Sweet Harvest Slot Review

Sometimes when you live in the crazy hustle and bustle of city life, you long for something a little bit quieter. Perhaps you should move to the countryside, perhaps even become a farmer. Well if you do, the busiest time of the year is going to be when it’s time to harvest your crop. That’s the theme of this slot game from Microgaming who keep on having their own harvest and producing some excellent games for us to enjoy playing and win money on.

You’ll love the look to this game. In the background there’s a view of what must be miles of countryside and it looks as if a bumper crop is about to be harvested so that’ll please the farmers in the area. We also get to see some fruit sitting on top of the reels, all looking absolutely delicious.

‘Sweet Harvest’ has five reels, three rows of colourful and well designed symbols and a total of 20 paylines that are hopefully full of winning combinations for you.

The symbols in the game include the farm workers who all seem to be a happy bunch despite the stress of harvest time. There’s the farmer with a basket of fruit, a strong-looking cowboy, the farmer’s pretty daughter and some of the crops namely pumpkins and sweetcorn. We also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols that have a bit of fruit attached to them.

The wild symbol in ‘Sweet Harvest’ is the Sweet Harvest log and this can substitute for all the other symbols with the exception of the barn scatter symbol and the Harvest bonus symbol.

All the details of the game are included in the paytable. Read that and then have some free games to see just how everything works out when the reels begin to spin.

There’s also an autoplay feature that you can use. This is situated below the reels and you can set s many as 100 if you so wish. Actually you can set more than that if going down the customized route. You can also get the automated spins to stop when a certain win is achieved or a balance reached.

Bonus Games

If you want to get 12 free spins and let’s face it, why wouldn’t you, then keep an eye out for the scatter symbols. If you can get at least three of the barn scatter symbols then that’s what you get. Now it starts to get very interesting as the two young sweethearts start getting all romantic in the upstairs window. They better be careful though because the farmer is on the look out for them.

As the 12 free spins begin those two youngsters become wild symbols and they are stacked on the reels. If they manage to get you a win by substituting for other symbols, then that win is doubled. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins and that won’t do your account balance any harm at all.

As I’ve mentioned, it’s three scatters that are needed to trigger the bonus game. If during the base game you get scatters end up on the first and second reels then the other three will be re-spun if they don’t end up triggering the free spins first time round.

Two of the scatters leads to some animation where the farmer is chasing the young guy while his daughter looks on from the barn window. There’s going to be trouble if he gets caught that is for sure. He’ll probably get the sack once the harvest is all sorted out.

If you can get the bonus symbol on the second and fourth reels then this gives you a random cash prize

Conclusion

A colourful slot from Microgaming that has a great look to it and a soundtrack that won’t have you reaching for the mute button. The animations are fun and the bonus games can get you some good profits, so definitely recommended.
