Game in Action
One thing is certain: the farm animals are enjoying themselves immensely on this slot. They all look as if they’re riding the tornado like a wave, sporting huge grins. Visually the slot is definitely well done with its cartoonish theme.
The banjo music in the background is not so generic as to grind on one’s nerves and actually adds to the theme. And instead of generic card symbols we find tons of household items (such as a TV, a boot, a stool, a sofa chair and a suitcase) that have apparently been swept away by the tornado as well. Thus the slot is definitely a joy to look at and should entice a smile out of you.
The slot offers up two features. It’s a pretty simple and straightforward game. Some like it that way and some don’t. The first feature you’ll notice in the base game is the randomly appearing storm cloud. It will show up on either side of the screen and then blow across it, leaving extra wilds in its wake. With a little luck you get three or more, which could be lucrative.
Ultimately you’ll be more interested in the tornado feature, however. Look out for the hot front and cold front symbols on reels 1 and 5. Whenever they appear at the same time on the screen, the tornado feature is triggered.
Here one symbol is chosen at random to be collected alongside the wild symbol. The wild and the random symbol will then be collected by the tornado on every spin you are given for free (which is why this is essentially the free spin bonus, though not in the classic sense of the game). Both symbols are assigned increasing coin values, which are added at the bottom of the screen.
The feature continues for as long as more wilds and more of the randomly chosen symbol appear on the reels. When that is no longer the case, your winnings are calculated and you’re returned to the free spins. Winnings here aren’t huge, but enough to keep you going and the feature shows up relatively often to make it worthwhile.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
Tornado Farm Escape won’t be for everyone. If you like more action and more bonus features, you’ll be bored with this soon. If you need higher stakes, you won’t find satisfaction here either. It’s simply a fun little slot that is pretty well known in the NetEnt suite and quite deservedly so.
If you’re a player who chooses slots based on their entertainment value, this one will definitely be good for you. Despite its simplicity its quirkiness will keep you going for some time. And the bonus features tend to hit often enough to keep things interesting.
