Fruit Frenzy Online Video Slot
Fruit Frenzy, developed and produced by the Realtime Gaming software team, is a 5-reel, 25-payline online Video Slot. The top fixed Jackpot in the regular game is 10,000 coins, and the coin value range is 0.01 to 5.0. Only 1 coin can be put on each line, so the betting range per spin is 0.01 to 125, and every player budget is accommodated. The game can also be played for free, which gives players the chance to build confidence and skills before wagering real money.
The idea behind Fruit Frenzy is a circus hosted by different fruits, and the higher-value regular reel symbols feature cartoon-like fresh produce wearing good-natured expressions and performing different actions. These include a Dancing Pear, a Ringmaster Banana, a Clown Orange, a Plum holding popcorn, a Canon made out of a watermelon and a Strawberry who seems set to be launched from it like Geronimo. Other symbols such as Balloons, a Clown Car and Admission Tickets continue the theme, as do the star-spangled purple backdrop and the typically Circus soundtrack.
The game’s Wild Symbol is a Pineapple, which can stand in for all regular reel icons to complete winning combinations and triggers the top fixed Jackpot when 5 line up along an activated payline. Spinning 4 along a winning line triggers the second-highest Jackpot of 2,000 coins.
The only icons that the Wild can’t substitute for are the game’s 2 Scatter Symbols, bearing the Fruit Logo and Frenzy Logo respectively. These can be scattered anywhere across the reels and don’t need to line up along activated paylines to trigger their wins. As long as 2 or more appear, different Multipliers will expand players’ initial stakes.
Daredevil Bonus Feature
In Fruit Frenzy, rather than just the Scatter Symbols triggering the Bonus Game, any symbol can do it. Whenever 5 symbols of any kind are lined up along an activated payline the Daredevil Bonus Feature, which continues the Circus theme, comes into play. Players are taken to a new screen where the Strawberry is actually fired from the Cannon towards a Melon target. Players can’t do this manually though, and have to watch to see how the software performs in the game. There are 3 chances in each round for the Strawberry to hit the Melon, and every time this happens players are awarded a point. Free Spins are given according to how many points were won, with 0, 1, 2 and 3 points earning 5, 10, 15 and 25 free reel turns respectively.
Other Game Enhancements
The AutoPlay and Skill Stop Features allow Fruit Frenzy to cater to players’ needs more specifically. With AutoPlay, the reels can be set to spin on their own so busy players can carry on with the rest of their lives while keeping their wins up. The Skill Stop Feature allows players to control when the reels stop so that they can create winning combinations, and requires serious practice in the Free Play mode,
As a final flourish, there is also a randomly triggered Progressive Jackpot in the Fruit Frenzy Slot game. This is added to by players around the world, and just keeps growing until it is won. Knowing that this could happen at any moment adds more thrill to the proceedings for players.
