Launched just days before the Halloween holiday of 2018, this slot machine is one of the Habanero titles and a release which is going to be appreciated in the days to come. It’s a pumpkin themed game most of all, with a focus on the farming side of things and having some wildlife thrown in as well. It’s not a typical Halloween ready slot machine then, but it should be fun for plenty of players anyway.
To start with, expect to find in this game 25 active lines, on a 5 reels setup. You are getting free spins, regular and expanding wilds, plus the option to collect corn in order to get better features down the line. When you add a progressive jackpot as well, alongside the slot’s own rewards, you’re already looking at a very cool release.
Betting and Prizes
Having 25 active lines that you can play on, the game will allow you to use 25 coins or more each round. The bet can be supplemented via the Bet Level option, which changes the number of coins wagered per line. The other option is to simply modify the coin value, another setting that you can use in this game. Bets may be quite low, at just $0.25, but they can be considerably higher if needed.
As for the rewards being offered, those can reach considerable value, and the features will make the rounds even more exciting. It’s going to offer you a progressive jackpot as well, which can also be a fair target for any player trying out Pumpkin Patch.
Pumpkin Patch Slot Features
I’ve discovered some unusual features in Pumpkin Patch, and that was a nice surprise. The presence of certain symbols next to Pumpkins will transform the latter into features. An example of this would be when you get a Squirrel to appear in an adjacent position to a Pumpkin. The Pumpkin will be turned into a regular wild symbol, which you will be using as a replacement after that.
Another possibility is to have a Crow next to the same Pumpkin, in which case you end up with an expanding wild symbol. It takes over the three positions of the reel and contributes to as many as 25 winning combinations.
Whenever you get symbols with Corn Cobs on the reels, they will be collected in the upper right corner. You get the number of free spins to increase that way.
In order to gain access to the free spins, you need three scattered Pumpkin Scarecrows. The accumulated free spins will be triggered next.
As you can see, the game has a mix of features, some regular ones being used together with some more unusual options. It ends up being a fun game, which I found quite interesting.
Theme & Design
The inspiration that comes from Halloween is obvious, but the actual design is definitely not typical for this period. Other developers try harder to get something scary from their slots. Habanero chose instead a funny looking crew, with Pumpkin Scarecrows, squirrels and crows appearing next to pumpkins, acorns and multiple orange Royals. It’s a cartoon-style game, very well designed, but once again it’s not a regular Halloween ready look.
Pumpkin Patch should be just as interesting to play during the rest of the year as well, not just for Halloween. I especially like the way Habanero implemented the game’s features.
