Released: October, 2018
Released in time for Halloween, Pumpkin Patch is a Habanero video slot that will provide you with loads of entertainment. The Halloween theme is used skilfully with a set of transparent reels set on a field covered by pumpkins. Here, you will meet a pumpkin scarecrow, an odd character that smokes a pipe and uses a modern smartphone. A crow and squirrel he tries to chase away will boost your winning chances by turning pumpkins into Wilds.
The game features 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines. The pumpkin scarecrow stands on the right-hand side of the reels puffing away at his pipe. Occasionally, he would laugh, yawn or grab his smartphone looking busy. His reactions depend on your performance, but we have to admit that this is one of the most vibrant characters we have met in slot machines so far. The overall appearance of the game is spectacular with 3D graphics and cartoon-like animations accompanied by a matching soundtrack.
The reels are home to theme-related icons and standard playing card symbols. Those making up the higher ends of the paytable include the pumpkin, crow, squirrel, pipe, acorn and corn. Low-value icons are depicted as playing card symbols from 9s through As. Although we are not fans of going for this option to fill the paytable, they are drawn really nice and match the theme of the game.
When it comes to special symbols, Pumpkin Patch has a lot to offer. Pumpkin Scarecrow assumes the role of Wild that lands on all reels to replace all other symbols. This icon also awards free spins. Two regular symbols, the pumpkin and the corn, act as special icons as well. They will help you complete more winning combinations and award free games.
The Habanero slot machine features a user-friendly interface. Players can choose a bet level and wager 2, 5, 7 or 10 coins per payline. A coin denomination can also be adjusted according to your budget. With a bet that starts at 25 coins and goes all the way up to 250 coins per spin, the slot is suitable for all kinds of players. The Autoplay option allows activating between 10 and 500 spins that will play without interruption.
To land a win, you have to align three or more symbols of a kind on a payline in succession left to right or right to left. The prizes shown in the paytable are given for the selected bet level and coin value.
We have already mentioned all the special symbols the slot benefits from, so let’s see what they can do for you. Pumpkin Scarecrow Wild will help you complete your winning combinations and trigger free games when 3 or more of these land anywhere in view. Once you trigger the feature, you will play the number of free games given in the Count above the reels. The feature can be retriggered to add extra 8 free games. All prizes during free spins are tripled.
Another way of triggering free games is by creating winning combos containing corn symbols. Whenever they create a win, they are added to the so-called Pending Count. If you manage to collect 30 corn icons during the base game, you will trigger the free spins feature. Corn symbols creating wins during free games will be added to the Free Games Left Count. The Count is always reset to 8 free spins.
More Wilds can be added to the reels thanks to the crow and squirrel symbol. When the crow symbol lands next to the pumpkin symbol, it makes the pumpkin symbol turn into Wild and expand to cover all the positions on the reel. The squirrel symbol turns the pumpkin symbol into Wild.
The top paying symbols in the Pumpkin Patch slot are Pumpkin Scarecrow and Wild awarding 1,000 coins for five of a kind each. With up to 10 bet levels, the game pays as much as 250,000 coins in a single spin. The biggest payouts can be obtained during free spins where all prizes are tripled.
We have really enjoyed while playing the Habanero 2018 release. It looks great, plays smoothly and pays well, so you can enjoy it whenever you want despite its theme. Thanks to additional and expanding Wilds you will be able to create multiple winning combinations at once. However, the biggest attraction of Pumpkin Patch is definitely its free spins feature awarding trebled payouts. What we particularly like about the feature is that you can enter it in two different ways, which adds more excitement to the gameplay. We highly recommend the Habanero product, so consider giving it a try as soon as possible.
