Humanity may need to reevaluate its methods of food production in light of the United Nations’ projection that the global population would reach 11.2 billion by the year 2100. Solutions include employing robotics, decreasing food waste, and water conservation. Putting sloths in charge of food production is one strategy that hasn’t been mentioned. You might be wondering, “How the heck would that even function?” Since sloths aren’t recognized for their energy or productivity, it’s unlikely that it would. In most media representations, they are shown to be relaxing and enjoying life. However, in Frank’s Farm, an online slot game developed by Hacksaw Gaming, players get to put the idea to the test.
So, Frank the sloth owns this property. What a lovely piece of property that is, too! Hacksaw Gaming has once again demonstrated its prowess in developing both bright and inviting games and dark and dreary slot machine settings. Put it out of your mind for the time being, and get ready for a feel-good game full of jovial animals, upbeat music, and humorous shenanigans involving food and its journey from Frank’s Farm to your table.
But it’s not all belly laughter here. Powered by a medium-volatility mathematical model, the RTP for Frank’s Farm varies based on the game’s settings and whether or not the player makes use of the game’s bonus buys. At the maximum level, the potential return value for regular play is 96.31 percent, while the hit rate is 36.1 percent. Bets may range from 10p/c to £/€100 each spin, and any device can be used.
Unusually for a slot machine from Hacksaw Gaming, Frank’s Farm pays off when at least 8 matching symbols appear anywhere on its 6×6 playing field. Scatter wins of 15+ symbols are the most lucrative, paying off anywhere from 15x to 25x the wager for 10A card royals or 37.5x to 75x the wager for bees, fish, chickens, pigs, or cows. Scatter winnings with 8 symbols pay between 0.1 and 1 times the wager. When a winning combination appears on the reels, it is deleted and fresh symbols drop down from above to take its place. When no further wins are landed, the winnings in a tumble finish. Finally, Frank hasn’t cultivated any wilds for use on the farm. Perhaps he will do so in the coming harvest.
Features of Frank’s Farm Slot Machine
The main game of Frank’s Farm can be boosted by Market Multiplier symbols, and there are two possible bonus games. When the option is there, players can choose from three different strategies in the game’s in-app store.
Drivers of Market Growth
All winnings on the reels are multiplied by Market Multipliers, which are multipliers as their name implies. If there is more than one Market Multiplier in play, their combined values will be used to determine the final payout. You may set the Market Multiplier to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10.
Get the Bous Game in a Hurry
If you get three FS symbols while playing the main game, you’ll enter the Order Rush bonus round and receive 10 free games. In the bonus round, you’ll receive one additional free spin for every FS symbol that appears. Players in Order Rush are tasked with carrying out a series of missions. Each order consists of one to three different kinds of symbols and is displayed adjacent to the reels. The order consists of 10 to 24 symbols of various types, and the complexity of the subsequent order and the required minimum value of Market Multipliers both rise by 1 with each successful order. It is not necessary for a winning combination to occur in order for a symbol of the specified kind to be gathered.
Dinner Rush: Extra Game
The Diner Dash free spins bonus game is activated by getting four FS symbols anywhere in the main game. The same number of extra free spins are awarded for each FS symbol that appears during the feature. A new Diner icon has been included in this iteration. When a Diner symbol appears, it will stay put for the length of the bonus round. The value of any winnings is added to the Diner symbol during the course of the spin, and the total is awarded at the end of the round.
In regions where bonus purchases are legal, Frank’s Farm offers three alternatives, all of which are moderately risky for players:
Bonushunt Featurespins are two times as profitable as regular spins, with a threefold increase in bonus feature activation odds with each spin. Potential Return on Investment is up to 96.28%.
Order Priority: 100x the bet, maximum RTP of 96.39 percent.
Maximum return to player (RTP) in Diner Dash is 96.34% and the cost is 200 times the wager.
Farmer Frank’s Slot Machine Decision
Frank’s Farm has made strong use of the scatter payout mechanic, which is one of the game’s main focuses. Hacksaw Gaming has included a multiplier element, as has been the case with games from other companies, most notably Pragmatic Play. The multipliers here may reach dizzying heights, much like those in Pragmatic Play’s Gates of Olympus and other scatter pay slots. Market multipliers aren’t huge on their own, topping out at x10, so you’ll need many in play to reach truly staggering numbers. However, a Market Multiplier can be useful in and of itself, especially when coupled with a substantial cluster victory.
In terms of the bonus rounds, testing showed that Order Rush was the clear winner. It wasn’t too difficult to meet a few orders, which boosted the Market Multiplier’s floor price. It bears repeating that orders are fulfilled not by collecting just winning symbols, but by the simple landing of the appropriate symbol. The Diner symbol was surprisingly difficult to find in the bonus game of Diner Dash. It didn’t show up until the fifth or sixth bonus round, but the way each visible Diner re-awarded its accumulated value on each spin was entertaining. Imagine the fun you could have if the Diners regularly regurgitated large reward amounts.
With a top payoff of only 5,000 times the initial wager, Frank’s Farm is hardly one of Hacksaw Gaming’s more generous slot machines. This game’s mild volatility, along with its charming aesthetics, may draw a different kind of player than, say, Wanted Dead or Alive, Hand of Anubis, or Chaos Crew. In other words, not everyone will enjoy it, but the proper hands should find that the charm of Frank’s Farm is just what the doctor ordered.
