Review Frank’s Farm
This game has a style we haven’t seen before from Hacksaw Gaming before which is kind of surprising, we have to say. The cosy sort of countryside look and feel to it will make you feel welcome and the multiplier-involved gameplay is also a nice move by this popular game developer. We found it kind of surprising as well to see fish in the middle of the field amongst farm animals like chickens, pigs, and cows. Anything works in the dynamic world of online pokie games, and they are quite a charming bunch all together. Multipliers can go up to x10 and boost tumble wins. You can also upgrade the multipliers in the Order Rush symbol collection bonus round. The Diner Dash sees an accumulation symbol, and the overall 5,000x win potential is fairly decent for a game with a medium volatility level.
How to Play
Frank’s Farm is a rather new online pokie game delivered by Hacksaw Gaming that gives us 6 reels and 6 rows. This online pokie is readily available at most online casinos in NZ that have Hacksaw in their portfolio. Here is a quick look of how to play Frank’s Farm:
- The interface of the game narrows down to a 6×6 grid, with an all-scatter wins engine. You can win after landing a combination of matching symbols on any grid position.
- The Spin button can be found on the right hand side of the reels. Press it to activate the reels into spinning once. Before doing so, use the ‘+’ and/or ‘-’buttons attached to the Spin icon to adjust the bets.
- It is possible to wager anywhere from $0.10 to $100 per Frank’s Farm online pokie. This makes sure that both recreational and high rollers should find the limits ideal to their bankroll. If you want to play automatically, we suggest you to go ahead and enable the advanced Autoplay feature.
- The Menu icon in the game will open some extra settings, like the Turbo and the Super Turbo modes. These increase the reel spin speeds. Additionally, you can also access the paytable and game rules by making use of the Info command.
You will find yourself positioned in the air above a farm which adds a strategy game touch to this pokie. With a 6×6 playing field found in the middle of the screen, you will see a tractor, farmhouse, chicks, carrots and Frank in the background. The game’s audio has a banjo feel to it which suits the rest of the pokie. On the grid, you’ll find standard symbols such as A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards. The high values include symbols like bees, fish, chickens, pigs and cows. The most lucrative symbol is the cow symbol with 15+ on the grid awarding 75x the stake. With no wild symbol, other symbols in the game include Market Multiplier Scatter, the Frank Free Spins Scatter and the Diner symbol. The latter only lands during the Diner Dash feature. Here are some more details of this game.

The base game of Frank’s Farm has a tumble feature and a special symbol called market stall multipliers. In addition, there are 2 free spins rounds that you can play. Here is what the different bonus features in Frank’s Farm can do for you:
When you land 8 or more of the same symbols on the playing field, they will be removed to make way for new ones, which is part of the tumble. If the new symbols ensure that there are 8 or more of the same symbols on the playing field again, you get another tumble. The tumbles stop when no more winning combinations are made.
Market Stole Multipliers
In addition to the regular symbols, market stalls can also land on the grid. These market stall multipliers carry a multiplier of a minimum of x2 and a maximum of x10, which is applied to all winnings that land on the playing field at the same time. If multiple market stall multipliers land, the values are first multiplied together before the winnings are multiplied.
Frank’s Farm Free Spins
To trigger the free spins round of Frank’s Farm, you have to land Frank himself onto the playing field. He carries a sign with FS and 3 of these symbols will give you 10 free spins in the order rush bonus. With 4 Frank symbols you get 10 free spins in the diner dash bonus. In both rounds, you get an extra free spin for every Frank symbol that lands on the grid.
- Order Rush: during the Order Rush bonus you receive orders. These are found at the top of the playing field and consist of a certain number of animals. When you complete an order, the minimum value of the market stall multipliers is increased by +1. The next order gets a bit more difficult, but increases the minimum value even more.
- Diner Dash: this bonus has no orders, but it does have an extra special symbol: the diner symbol. When this symbol lands, it becomes sticky and remains on the grid until the end of the round. The dinner symbol collects all winnings that land on the playing field. Once the dinner dash round has ended, you will be paid out all winnings that the symbol has accumulated at once.
Buy Bonus feature
Players in New Zealand have the choice to use the Buy Bonus feature. Activated by clicking/pressing the green ‘Bonus Buy’ button that is found to the left of the grid, will give you 3 options to choose from. The RTP changes with each option. Here are all the details:
|Bonushunt Feature spins||Each spin 3x more likely to activate a feature||2x the stake per spin||96.28%|
|Order Rush||Access to the Order Rush feature||100x the stake||96.39%|
|Diner Dash||Access to the Diner Dash feature||200x the stake||96.34%|
The RTP in Frank’s Farm is set at 96.31% which is quite above the 96% online pokie average. We want to point out here that Hacksaw Gaming has launched 94.36% and 92.35% RTP versions too which may be offered by some online pokie sites out there. This is why we advise you to check first before you play. With all RTP versions, there is a 36.1% hit frequency rate which basically means that the winning combination will land every 2.77 spins, on average that is. As for the game’s volatility, the Frank’s Farm pokie is labelled as medium (3 out of 5). Additionally, there are 5,000x bet top wins available in this online casino game. As most often is the case, the biggest wins in this game are found in the different bonus features.
Visually, Frank’s Farm is actually fairly simple, but as a Scatter Pays game, you will need 8+ matching symbols to get a winning outcome. This will lead to cascades which can give you heaps of successive wins which makes this pokie a bit different than most standard casino games. Make sure to pay attention to the Market multiplier symbols which can give you wins of up to 10x. Multiple Markets can lead to the biggest wins. There are also 2 free spins features. As for the Order Rush feature, you will need to complete so-called ‘orders’ to increase the minimum Market multiplier symbol value. The Diner Dash feature is our favourite one there and will make you earn passive income by collecting wins from the Diner symbols. As for the gameplay itself, we found the Frank’s Farm pokie to be highly entertaining. There is lots of stuff going on in the base game with cascades and Market multipliers going into overdrive in the 2 free spins features. The only drawback of the game is probably that the top win could be a lot higher for it to be considered the best in its genre.
