The old school fruity gets a very fresh re-boot in Fruit Snap. Created by Red Tiger Gaming, the Fruit Snap slot is played on an 8 reel, 8 row, symbol drop grid. Collect specific winning combinations to remove symbols, double payouts or trigger the free spins round. Stakes in this unusual game range from between 10p and £20 per spin.
Rather than filling paylines or landing symbols on adjacent reels winning combinations in Fruit Snap are created by landing clusters of at least 5 matching symbols. The 8×8 grid is made up of lower value cherries, strawberries, lemons, oranges and melons. They’re joined by dice, stars, bells and diamonds. The lucky 7 is the top symbol. A cluster of 5 pays 2.5 times your stake. Land 15 in a group for a payout of 777 times your stake.
Fill the Meter
Land a winner and the successful symbols are removed and a new symbol drop occurs. Called the Symbol Meters to feature, those winning symbols also fill up their associated meter. Fill the meter during 1 single set of symbol drops and you’ll bring a special extra into play.
Fill a lower value fruit meter and that symbol is removed from play for the rest of this drop. For example, if you fill the melon meter all the melons are removed from the grid for the remainder of that set of drops. This is known as the Fruit Removal feature.
Fill the meter of a high-value symbol and it’s not removed. Instead, it offers double payouts in the Double Win Upgrade feature. For example, activate the lucky 7 meters and it offers payouts of between 5 and 1,554 times your stake rather than 2.5 and 777 times your stake respectively.
Free Spins feature
To trigger the Free Spins feature, you’ll need to land enough wins to fill the Bonus Crown meter. Your reward will be 10 free spins. The Double Money and Symbol Removal extras are in play. Once fruit is removed, it remains out of play for any free spins you have left rather than for just that series of symbol drops.
Wins of over 3,000 x Stake
The gameplay in Fruit Snap is a combination of social media game and classic fruity. The Free Spins feature can be well worth hitting, especially if you manage to get multiple fruit symbols out of the way early in the proceedings. This can lead to wins of over 3,000 times your stake on each free spin. The glossy design is nicely done too. Add all that into the mix and Fruit Snap is a very playable take on this classic slot theme. If you like cluster pays slots, Play ‘N Go has plenty with Troll Hunters 2 recommended.
