Get ready for a disco vibe and fruit machines’ fever of the 70s upgraded to an 8x8 set with cluster pays. Here you will win from the symbol meter’s features. These remove low-value symbols, double the payouts of premium ones, and activate the free spins. Retro slots have been used for an inspiration to create this upgraded and modern game.
Red Tiger Gaming plans to release Fruit Snap on October 3, 2019, for fans of the classic slots. They can have fun with this game incorporating several innovative features. Clusters of 5 or more symbols on horizontal and vertical direction grant you wins and access to the extra modes in the slot.
Fruit Snap uses the 8×8 format with cascading grid and cluster pays mechanics. Clusters of at least 5 symbols of a kind landed horizontally and vertically on adjacent positions explode. They free space and new symbols drop from above. This has the potential to create new winning clusters. The spin sequence goes on as long as there are more paying combinations formed. You can play on desktop and mobile devices with from 0.10 to 20 credits per spin.
The slot’s volatility is at the maximum with and its RTP a bit under the industry average level – 95.75%. The game has 4 features active during free spins and the base mode. All of them are connected with the Symbol Meter. It removes low-value fruit symbols, doubles the payout of premium ones, and triggers the free spins. The max win you can score here is 3,500 times your stake or £70,000.
After loading the game a large disco ball so popular in the 70s will greet you. The slot is very identical to classic fruit machines with its symbols. These are bells, diamonds, cherries, watermelons, oranges, lemons, etc. Yet its 8×8 layout and features make it up-to-date. There is a symbol bar at the top of the grid that indicates which symbols has just created a winning cluster.
The soundtrack is also in the spirit of the disco era – funky and energising. Only the sounds of the clusters getting removed will be interrupting it. The feel is luxurious and glamorous with the disco ball surface of squares in purple as a background. There is an ongoing tune playing on repeat. The design of the game is pleasant and in retro style.
The symbols at the low end are the cherries, strawberry, orange, lemon, and watermelon. These pay from 10 to 20 times your bet when you form clusters of 30 or more identical symbols. Higher values have the dice, bell, star, the two diamonds, and the purple 7. If you make a cluster of over 30 matching symbols of any of these, you will receive from 30 to 777 times your stake. The scatter is a crown symbol and there isn’t any wild in the game.
Central part in the gameplay for scoring massive wins is the Symbol Meter at the top of the grid. Each symbol that creates a cluster and every crown scatter landing in a spin are added to their respective meter above. Filling one of the symbols in the meter activates a feature. It can upgrade the reels, double your wins or give you the free spins. When you play in the base game, the meter resets at the end of each spin sequence. The features available are these:
During free spins, the symbol meters won’t reset. This means that once a fruit symbol has been removed, it won’t appear in the rounds during free spins anymore. Also, doubled in value premium symbols will pay with their upgraded worth until the end of free spins. As a result, you have the chance to play with only double-paying high-value symbols and scatters at the end of the feature.
One last boosting feature is the Meter Bonus which can also trigger at random on a losing spin. Then, one or two symbols will be selected by chance and added to their respective meters. These symbols will be removed from the reels and new ones will take their place falling from above. Thus, a losing spin can turn into a winning one. There are no limits on the consecutive cluster pays that you can create.
We recommend Fruit Snap for fans of this category retro games of the fruit machine type. It is similar to Win Escalator, Mystery Spin Deluxe Megaways, Mystery Reels Megaways, and others. But involving several innovative features that haven’t been used widely so far. It includes cluster pays and offers a jackpot reward of 3,500 times your stake. Keep in mind that this is a very high volatility slot. this makes it is suitable for players with bankrolls that can afford it.
