If “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, then what kind of fruit might put some juice in your bankroll? According to top games developer Yggdrasil, that would be a Fruitoid!
Just what a Fruitoid is however, is hard to tell. They’re certainly not your everyday apples and bananas; they’re colourful, fascinating, and best of all, they're spinning in the reels of this super slot and promising to land you a lot of cash.
Across the five reels and three rows of this elegantly-animated slot, the multi-coloured fruitoids can assemble into winning combinations. Along each side, the numbers one to twenty-five are listed and by hovering your cursor over them, players can find which of the many paylines is active allowing them a bite at the biggest cherry.
Each of the unusual fruits has its own unique value, from a respectable twenty coins on a single payline, to a whopping 500 coins on a full set. Eagle-eyed players will soon notice that the bigger and rounder the fruitoid, the more valuable it will be. This means that the enormous round purple fruit you’ll sometimes encounter can provide you with the juiciest prize; a full screen of these will trigger twenty-five paylines of 500 coins. And if 12,500 coins weren’t sweet enough, it is multiplied by five with a single spin of the reels paying out 62,500 coins. Not bad for one click of your mouse!
Yggdrasil is obviously a believer in the idea that everyone should get their ‘five-a-day’ quota of fruit and veg, and the beauty of Fruitoids is its accessibility. Just about every slot player, of any experience, will find this game perfect for their level. Coin value can be set in a wide range, from as little as 0.32 up to 2.With every one of the paylines active, Fruitoids’ minimum bet is a measly 0.8; that’s about the best value out there. On the flip side, if you’re feeling really fruity, you can still place a bet of 50 on a single spin. For absolute beginners who are just taking a taste, or the experienced high rollers who want a bigger bite from their gaming, this slot caters to everyone.
The beauty of Fruitoids, apart from its imaginative design, is its simplicity. Don’t hang about waiting for wilds, bonus symbols, or even the scatters you may find elsewhere because this game has none of them - and doesn’t need them either. If regular gameplay isn’t quite whetting your appetite, just wait until the super Re-Spin kicks in. Spin a winning combination and it gets locked in place allowing you to join again and hopefully add more to that combo. If you do, that’ll also stay put. This can go on and on until the matches run out and consecutive columns filled add a multiplier to the proceedings. Three columns equal a 3x multiplier.
All of this leaves us with a very tasty prospect of big wins, and with Fruitoids’ Return to Player ratio (
) at a delicious 96.7%, we can see why this game of unusual fruit is so a-peel-ing!!
