Theme & Game-play
You will find your 5-a-day and more on these spinning reels, with 5x high paying individual fruit symbols: Lemon, Pear, Mango, Pineapple & the wild Cherries in order of value from lowest to highest. You also have a Strawberry bonus trigger, an Orange scatter and 4x fruit filled A-J playing card symbols, these last forming the lower value icons. The backdrop is a woodland glade that could be straight out of a Winnie the Pooh story, call me old fashioned, it’s cute, though the faces on the fruits weird me out a little,
I don’t know whether they are on a range of fruit narcotics or forcing a smile for the director – probably better not to know!
The graphics are well designed enough to be attractive but not over the top, even basic machines and older tablets should be able to keep up with the simple animations of the symbols when wins drop in, something which some of the flashier slots have had a problem with recently. The music is non-intrusive and the sound effects are reasonable, this isn’t a big budget slot, it is a simple classic game and very playable precisely because it doesn’t try to be what it isn’t.
There is up to 30 free spins available if you land 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels, land a Strawberry bonus trigger on reels 1+5 at the same time to trigger the Fruity Fields bonus game. This is a pick win bonus round with 21 fruits to select from, each pick rewards either a coin prize or bet line multiplier in the shape of a cherry topped fruit sundae which has been made in a nice gold trophy! Two points to note on the bonus is that you can’t re-trigger the free spins nor can you enter the Fruity fields bonus round from the free spins, which is a little less fruitful than you might like!
I’ve been playing this on and off since it came out in 2012, I’m not a huge fruit slot fan but I used to work at an online casino which stocked this game and so you get to know the in-house titles pretty well on a long quiet night shift. It plays well as a mobile or a web browser slot and it has a few entertaining tricks up its sleeve with a fairly low level of variance, at 93% the RTP could be a tad higher but it isn’t the worst ever seen.
Looking around the internet apparently a fair few casino game reviewers still don’t understand pay-table values and coins, they constantly list the top win in this game as 10000 credits, when it is 10000 coins max win – that’s a 100, 000 £/$/€ jackpot when playing with a 10. 00 coin value per line!
You can also play in free play or demo mode on this game if you want to test it out before playing it as a real cash slot.
As with almost all NeoGames titles the game is easy to play and transparent, the slots always come with a super easy to read pay-table in both a graphical form (which I have placed screenshots of above along with the Fruity Fields bonus round) and a text document available by clicking on the ‘? ‘ symbol in the game to give you complete and full game details including the RTP stats.
All the games are protected by a disconnect feature which records the game result, so not lost winnings! Most NeoGames supplied casinos also have a live chat, so if you aren’t sure – just hit the chat button!
