Ah! The crops are ripening, it's time for harvesting. No time for procrastinating, or the crops would go rottening. Are you ready to do some harvesting of your own? Well, I wasn't quite ready, but there was no time to waste, so I went in nonetheless. Harvesting what, you're asking? Harvesting what I sow, of course. I had planted those coins earlier on, so now it's time to sow the dollars, or something like that. Hahaha.
There aren't many games themed on crops, and this is probably the first game I have come across that deals with harvesting the crops. But the game has hidden harvesting agenda too, if you have noticed. Get 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the reels, and it's time for harvesting, right? Yep. Just take a look at the barn's window before the free spins begin. The handsome worker guy gets a quick move on to harvesting the farmer's daughter! Hahaha. Then, during the free spins, get 2 Scatters and see how the farmer chases the worker across the barn, with the daughter popping up at the window to see what's going on. Hilarious! Hahaha.
Hmm, but that's another story. Let's get back on track. The logo 'Sweet Harvest' is the Wild symbol, paying a low 100x the total bet for 5 of them. It comes stacked on all reels and substitutes for other symbols except the Scatter and the Bonus symbols. Hmm, it doesn't double any wins with it, but it's nice to see a non-dumb Wild symbol once in awhile. The Barn is the Scatter symbol, paying 150x the total bet for 5 of them, paying more than the Wild symbols, and getting 3 or more of these Barns trigger 12 free spins without any multiplier. Dang! A 2x multiplier is awarded each time the Man and the Woman symbols appear side by side during the free spins, and this is all the multiplier that you can get. Not much at all is it? But at least, the Free Spins game can be retriggered, so get as many retriggers as you can, if you can.
In the base game, whenever a Scatter lands on reels 1 and 2, 1 Respin is awarded, to try and get the third Scatter symbol. It doesn't happen often, but it does come once in awhile. The Fruits is the Bonus symbol, appearing only on reels 2 and 4, and awards an instant cash prize for each. This symbol doesn't appear during the free spins. As for the other symbols in the game, the Woman pays 50x, the Man pays 40x, the Farmer pays 37.5x, and the rest pay from 25x to 5x, all per total bet for 5 of each kind. The paytable indicates a maximum possible win of $100,000, or 50,000x the total bet amount, which I think is impossible to get! Not with only a 2x multiplier for the free spins, and not with those low symbols values in the low paytable. Getting 5 full reels of stacked Wilds would only pay 100x total bet x 20 paylines, which is only 2000x the total bet amount. Where does the other 48,000x total bet amount comes from?! Must be a gross big mistake somewhere!
Putting the hilarious 'inside the barn' episode aside, my plays on this Sweet Harvest weren't as sweet as I would like them to be. I did get a number of Free Spins games, but all paid mediocrely between 20x to 30x my bet amount, with the occasional 50x to 70x wins, achieved by getting 1 retrigger during the Free Spins game. Nothing to shout about, nothing much to get excited about. All those Stacked Wilds may make the game looks wonderful, but they don't really pay that much, and not really to my liking either.
