Barnyard Bonanza is a game whose action takes place in the barnyard, a farm themed slot machine which shows you some of the main characters and domesticated animals that you can hope to encounter in such a setting.
There is the image of the farm as well, for you to look at, in the background image. With areas for the animals to graze upon, behind fences, and with the dirt road to the farm shown in the middle, it’s a pretty typical look for a farm that seems to be mostly focused on animals to grow, not on crops.
The symbols chosen to be used in Barnyard Bonanza deliver the Farmer, the Horse, Cow, Chicken, Pig, Scarecrow, Barn, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9. The Royal cards are made out of different materials, inspired by fruits and crops, ranging from corn, to strawberries or watermelon.
Ainsworth comes from Australia, their offices being based in Sydney. The company has employees in the US as well, and they’re doing well with the regular casino industry, while also making a move towards the online industry, offering a couple of dozen titles for them right now.
They don’t seem to be too adventurous with their game choices, the slots being mostly based on classic icons, on dragons, horses or other creatures of the jungle or the sky.
How To Play It
For the 20 lines which seem to be fixed, the game will let you spend anywhere from $0.01 to $100 in each case, so overall you can spend between $0.20 and $2,000 for just one spin.
While it does look like some effort has gone into the graphics of Barnyard Bonanza, the style in which the graphics were made is not a very attractive one. It’s the typical 3D computer generated design that doesn’t show much input from a real artist.

The symbol which is advertised as the wild, the Farmer, will be used obviously in the formation of combinations that have other regular symbols as well in them, but they will also be capable of rewarding you directly, as long as they occupy up to five positions on a line themselves.
They pay up to 125 coins when this happens. As wilds, they can’t replace a Golden Egg or a scatter.
The ones acting as scatters are the Chickens, symbols which are allowed to appear anywhere on the reels, but only during the base game spins. Should you get them in 3+ positions, you get the free spins, where you pick between 10 and 14 to play through, each option bringing you a different symbol in stacked form for all the reels.
If, during free spins mode, you land a Golden Egg symbol, you will get from it a bonus prize which is advertised as being a mystery win, or 1 to 3 additional free games. At most, this part of the game can pay 5x the bet.
The slot will pay the most through the Chicken scatter, delivering to you 50x the bet, which for a game like this could mean a prize of even $100,000.
Barnyard Bonanza will not deliver a huge prize, so that’s not the part that will convince you. It’s more likely to do well through its features, while its graphics I’d call average.
