Playson Bumper Crop Slot Review and Free Play

Bumper Crop: Demo

A gardener who turns into a superhero is the unlikely back story to Bumper Crop, a 5 reel, 27 payline video slot from Playson. Played using a win both ways game engine, it also comes with wild trees that can deliver up to 10 free spins. Try and cultivate a wheelbarrow full of coins from between 27p and £135 per spin.

Like most video slots in the Playson catalogue, Bumper Crop is a very nicely designed game. The reels are set against a lovely looking market garden where you’ll find A to 10 playing cards and an assortment of garden tools including spades, watering cans and bags of seed. They’re joined by the sun and the gardener who is the most lucrative symbol, paying 100 times your total stake if you land 5 in combination.

All of the symbols apart from the playing cards play as scatters and are the key to growing trees which transform into wilds which in turn can deliver free spins.

To grow a tree, you’ll need to collect the spade, bag of seed, watering can, sun and gardener by landing them on the same reel – you can see what you’ve collected via a meter underneath each reel. Once you’ve gathered them all, a tree will sprout. As well as being wild it will also offer some free spins, the precise number depends on how much fruit is on its branches. You can usually expect 3 or 4 free spins here with the wild tree locked in position.

The Super Gardener symbol comes into play during the feature, boosting the tree’s growth by 1 stage and moving you a step closer to developing another wild tree. Hope to see the tree grow on the middle reel as it could go on to become a Super Wild Tree and offer up to 10 free spins rather than the 3 or 4 you’ll usually receive from a standard tree.

Playson likes to do things a little differently to many developers and that’s certainly the case in Bumper Crop. The wilds and features are very unusual and take a little getting used to. Demo play is your friend for a few spins at least. Once you have got acquainted, there’s much to like here. It looks and sounds terrific and the wild trees offer some very decent potential.

It might not be the most volatile game you’ll see but you can still cultivate a Bumper Crop of coins if the wild trees work their free spins magic. If you want to dig up riches, Playtech’s Fields of Fortune is a superb choice.
