Harvest juicy wins with the help of the mighty ‘Super Gardner’ in Playson’s Bumper Crop online video slot! Like many superheroes before him, this humble farmer obtained his superpowers through a chemical accident. During the intro, we see him spill the potent contents of an entire barrel of fertilizer over the top of his head. Now, his thumb is an even deeper shade of green allowing for an especially fruitful harvest. Bumper Crop offers an RTP of 95,53% and the chance to rack up cash via Free Spins, 6 different Scatter symbols, Wild Trees and Super Wild Trees!
Winning Has Never Tasted Sweeter
Bumper Crop is a 3-row, 5-reel, 27-fixed payline video slot. The symbols blend right into the background which is enhanced by animations such as the slow turning of a windmill and puffing of a smokestack. An animated, 3D farmer leans on his pitchfork just left of the reels. He shouts and gives a thumbs up on wins. The music is non-intrusive and perfectly suited to the theme.
Bumper Crop displays cash values for Balance, Total Bet, Bet/Line and Win. To choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 27p – £54 at Videoslots, select a Bet/Line ranging from 1p – £2. Values listed in the Paytable are shown in credits that remain fixed despite changes made to Bet/Line. Individual payline wins are highlighted across the reels and Total Win is displayed in the win box.

Bumper Crop Bonus Features
Scatters & Wild Trees: At the bottom of each of the 5 reels is a counter that fills up with the appearance of 5 different Scatters: Shovel, Seeds, Watering Can, Sun and Farmer/Super Gardener. Once the counter fills up, a Wild Tree that covers the entire reel will sprout. Regular Wild Trees can sprout up on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. Super Wild Trees can only appear on reel 3. Each awards a number of Free Spins indicated by the number of grapes on the vine. The appearance of the Super Wild Tree will award up to 10 Free Spins. The Wild Trees can each award 3 – 4 Free Spins.
Free Spins: The Farmer standing left of the reels transforms into his alter ego “The Super Gardener” who hovers rather than stands in place. The Super Gardner symbol can award 1 space or ‘growth stage’ to the counter at the bottom of any reel. During Free Spins, gameplay changes to ‘Win Both Ways’ giving twice as many chances to get a winning combo!
