Released at the end of 2015, this old school fruit video slot still feels quite nostalgic. This is the first installment of the classic style series published by Booming Games, a leading B2B provider of proprietary content for the iGaming industry, and it revolves around a pretty much familiar concept to the genre – crashing as many prizes as possible with cherry, fruit, lemon, pineapple, bell and gold bars on a small-sized layout and even tinier pay-line pattern.
The dominant colors in this fruit-inspired video slot are blue and pink, although the background features a typical casino floor found in almost every land-based gambling establishment on the Strip in Vegas. Apart from empty chairs, which give the impression that you’re completely alone in this rotunda…
…there are also some attractive neon lights on the ceiling and a cashier near the exit on the far right. Of course, it’s the middle of the screen where the action takes place – the rest of the graphics are simply adding to the overall casino atmosphere.
This game features special symbols which are illustrated as gold bars and red sevens, while the regular icons come in the form of lemons, oranges, pineapples, cherries, and bells. Apart from wilds and scatters, there are also substitution symbols but we’ll go back to that later.
The in-game soundtrack can make you feel like somebody hit you with a nostalgia stick, as it reminds of old video games from the 90s, but that’s an entirely different topic. If you’re not a fan, just hit the mute button.
Betting Options and Functions
This classically inspired online slot has a non-standard 3x3 layout. As for the number of pay-lines, there are 9 non-fixed winning lines in total, but it is possible to modify their number. In case you’re up for a challenge, this feature will definitely test your playing skills.
The minimum amount that can be placed per line is $0.01 but players can go as high as $50 per single spin.
As expected, the highest paying symbols are wilds and scatters, but if we exclude them from the picture and take a look at the regular icons, the biggest earnings can be made from lemons and oranges. After all, it is said that when life gives you lemons, you should go and make yourself a lemonade. In addition, the Christmas bells make very small payouts, including cherries and pineapples.
Like in many video slots, players can easily let the reels rolling automatically by clicking the auto-play button. The provider has included a couple of useful options under the settings, allowing everyone to choose when the rotations should end and under what circumstances. A cozy and budget-friendly feature.
As you might predict, the features in this Booming Games release are not as complex as you thought, making it a novice casino product for the most part.
On the one side, there is the wild symbol. Its function is to substitute for all other icons except for the scatter. After landing three scatter symbols on the reels, players are awarded with free spins!
Finally, there’s the gamble feature, allowing each player to either collect their winnings or try to multiply it or lose everything. Not really recommended, but should you decide to try it here’s how it looks:
On the right and left there’ll be oranges and cherries. The player has to guess which one will be revealed on the one-row slot placed in the background. If the answer is correct, then the earnings are doubled! Feel luck, but stay away from this feature as it can lower your budget sooner than you would expect.
Taking a look at this installment perhaps isn’t as memorable as playing modern smash hits by leading software developers, mostly due to its ordinary fruit theme with no special effects, animations or groundbreaking features for that matter.
However, it carries lots of charm in it as being a part of the series lifts up its value. Having a peek can bring you closer to knowing what fruit themes are all about, but stay open to other releases and classic style games, you might fall in love with the industry’s most notorious genre.
