Each reel has a Coin Meter above it and when special Oink Coin symbols land on a reel, they are added to the meter. If you collect 3 Oink Coins in a reel’s Coin Meter, all positions on the reel turn wild. This effect lasts for 3 spins before the wild reel falls away.
If you land three windmill scatter symbols on reels 2, 3, or 4, you will be awarded 10 free spins. While the bonus round is active, Wild Reels remain on the grid after they are activated. You can also retrigger the bonus round, by landing additional scatters that award you two extra free spins each.
Golden egg icons occasionally appear attached to chicken symbols and when they do, they are collected in a basket to the left of the reels. When this happens, the Eggs Rush feature can randomly trigger, moving you to a new screen where 16 chickens are arranged in a grid. You have to click one at a time to reveal a jackpot egg icon. Collect three of the same icons to receive a corresponding prize. The Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand jackpots, pay 15x, 50x, 500x, or 5,000x your bet, respectively.
Playing the Game
There isn’t much to playing Oink Farm, until it comes to the Eggs Rush feature. Placing your bet is easy and you can use the Autoplay option to have the game play up to 100 Spins on your behalf. Once you trigger Eggs Rush, things get interactive as you try to choose which chickens hold the highest jackpot value.
Oink Farm slot is a fun-filled experience, but it isn’t Foxium’s finest moment. The barnyard theme is charmingly executed with a twanging country soundtrack and friendly-looking animal characters. I thought the Wild Reels feature was a great addition. It kept the base game interesting, and I got some impressive wins when I turned multiple reels wild at once. The most elusive and lucrative feature is the Eggs Rush jackpot game that took quite a few spins to activate but presented me with the game’s top potential of $250 000.
While this game adequately delivers across all categories it pales in comparison to other, more compelling content from Foxium. If you’re looking for a better representation of this studio’s capabilities, check out the fruit machine-themed Foxpot or the Norse mythology-inspired, feature-rich Cossacks the Wild Hunt.
