This quirky farm yard fable features an upbeat country style hoedown for a soundtrack, and the game itself is pretty lively too. Wins are announced with a hillbilly guitar twang, and you almost feel as if you may be playing on a traditional ole farm yard on the plains of Oklahoma. A bigger win results in a more extended hoedown. The reels are grass green as the surprised looking farm animals and various household objects sweep by. The premise is that these objects are being sucked into a tornado, which in this case is good, because it enables the downtrodden creatures to escape.
On the reels you get various goggle eyed cartoon depictions of farm animals, such as a cow, a sheep, a pig, a chicken and a horse. These are supplemented by the aforementioned household paraphernalia. These include a suitcase, a vintage transistor radio, a milking stool and a wellington boot. Fortunately the playing cards were saved, so there are none of these flying about on this game. The Wild symbol is a retro TV set. This can substitute for all the other symbols apart from the Hot and Cold symbols. These special symbols appear on Reels 1 and 5 only. Get one on both reels to trigger the Tornado Feature (see below).
This game can be played on any device, and its all-action game play shows up well on even the smallest mobile phone screen. This is an exciting game with some innovative special features. The cartoon animal characters add a real flavour of fun to the slot, making this an amusing and engaging game to play.
The Storm Feature is randomly triggered, and can appear on any spin. Once the reels start spinning, the storm can appear on any of the outside positions of the reels. It then spins off in random directions turning symbols wild. This continues until the Storm leaves your visible reels. Any resulting prizes are awarded at the end of the spin.
The Tornado Feature is triggered whenever you get a Hot and Cold Symbol on Reels 1 and 5 at the same time. When this happens, the central position on your reels becomes active. All active symbols and any Wilds are then collected by the Tornado and the reels are re-spun. If the Wild symbol is in the central position when the Tornado Feature is triggered and becomes active, only Wilds are collected during your re-spins. Bet line wins are not awarded during the Tornado Feature. Instead, a meter appears on your screen, keeping a count of all the various symbols you collect.
The re-spins continue until you fail to obtain a win, or collect any Wild symbols. At this point, all your collected symbols are totted up and you are awarded your total prize according to the number and value of the symbols you have acquired. This can be quite a substantial sum. The top potential prize is 4,500 x your original bet if you can collect 8 or more Wild symbols. Even just one or two will see you rewarded with 200 x your original stake. All the farm animals are pretty lucrative. Every individual farm animal will bring you at least 20 x your stake, but get five or more identical animals and your sums start to rise faster than debris caught in a tornado. Seventeen or more of the same symbol will win you at least 700 coins.
