Barnyard Twister is a game that looks interesting in more ways than one. Not only is this a game with cute graphics and a story that should remind you of the tornado from the Wizard of Oz, but the features are fairly unique as well, and the action I found to be very interesting. You can thank Booming Games for releasing this slot machine.
Now, getting back to what is offered in this game, expect a slot machine with 5 reels/25 lines and with potential wins even as high as $400,000 for each spin. With regular and double symbols, scatters, free spins and a Rotator bonus, the list of features is also fairly long and interesting.
Betting and Prizes
You have to use the Up and Down arrows, both found next to the Total Bet display, to adjust the value of the wager for the next spin. The range is from $0.25 to $50, which gives you the possibility to spend at most $2 for each line.
With the introduction of double symbols, this game has the ability to pay for combinations which have up to 10 symbols in them, their values reaching 8,000 coins in some cases, or $16,000 per line. Given the number of lines involved, the potential per spin reaches $400,000, so the game doesn’t pay more than that.
Barnyard Twister Slot Features
You will play Barnyard Twister on 5x5 reels, and there are 25 lines there, on which combinations may form. As I’ve mentioned already, the game makes use of Double Symbols. They’re not unique to this game, but they’re still fairly difficult to find in slots. It just means that when you see a symbol with one animal in it, it will count as one symbol. When you see two animals of that type, then it counts as two symbols in a combo. Getting five double symbols delivers the highest reward, since it’s considered that you have 10 symbols total in one combo.
The 3rd reel is the one which can have scatters on it, and it’s enough to get a single such icon (3 FS logo), in order to trigger 3 free spins. Unfortunately, there is no way for you to retrigger the free spins, once you’ve gotten them.
There is also a Rotator feature mentioned for this game, and it will activate via 3, 4 or 5 special symbols (Twister icons). Their number determines if you get 2, 3 or 4 rotations, respectively. Once the regular wins get paid, you will find that the game area rotates at 90 degrees clockwise, to get you a new round of wins. Special symbols replace all other regulars, after one rotation, to complete payline wins.
Theme & Design
The twister is coming for a farm, and the animals living there are in danger. These cute critters are almost cube shaped and sporting a cartoon look which makes them a lot of fun to look at. You have cows, sheep, chickens and pigs for the main symbols, along with the twister, scatter logos and more Royals than I’d like to see. The image selected for the background is just showing the farm’s fields.
Barnyard Twister manages to look good and to offer excellent features, alongside its cute graphics. I for one found it a very enjoyable game, particularly with those double symbols forming big wins.
