It's time to juice up! Here is another fruit-based slot, this time from the guys at Yggdrasil Gaming. Fruitoids is a fresh 5-reel 25-pay line slot with juicy bonus features. Why not 'orange' a few spins on this slot for yourself? You'd be bananas if you didn't! The fruits in this game look positively alien though and are like nothing you'd expect to see in a fruit salad – not one you'd be prepared to tuck into anyhow! They also have to tendency to stick to the reels when they form winning combinations, which is something that increases your chances of landing a juicy jackpot.
You can select your coin size at any level from 0.01 to 5.00 per line, but as all twenty-five pay lines are fixed, your wager per spin is automatically multiplied by twenty-five. Just click on the spin button to send the suspicious-looking fruits rotating around the reels – and keep your fingers crossed that nothing 'apple'-ing happens…
Grab yourself at least three (you get nothing for a 'pear') identical symbols in sequence from the left-hand reel on an active payline, you congrats, you're a winner.
Payout & bonus rounds
The payouts in normal play start from 3x your bet-per-line for three of the pea-like fruits, to 500x your wager for five of the purple fruits that look like… a half-deflated basketball, perhaps?
There are no wilds or scatters in this game, but Fruitoids does has a couple of unique features. Firstly, when you land a win, ALL the symbols of the winning fruit on the reels, and not just those on the reels containing the winning payline, stick there for a free spins. Re-spins are re-triggered for as many times as you land a fresh fruit-y win.
Secondly, every time you fill a complete column with the same fruit you increase a multiplier along the top of the screen, so it's 2x for the first two columns (left-to-right in sequence only), 3x for the first three, and up to x5 for all five columns. The fruits unstick once you land a spin with no new wins.
Fruitoids could have been a 'peach' of a game, but the lack of wilds, scatters and bonus games reduces the chances of it being a game you're going to want to play for a prolonged session. The sticky fruits idea is a 'berry' nice one though, and it does get a little exciting if you start to fill the reels with the same fruit. Fruitoids is certainly not the 'lemon' of the online slots scene!
