Fruit sure may be a recurring theme in a world of online videos for some reason, but it takes a master to recognize the unused potential of such a vague theme to turn it into something special. Booongo is one of those developers that possess the know-how and creative sparks necessary for such an undertaking, making us wish they were much better placed in the hierarchy of game suppliers than they are now – because they do deserve it. Fruity Frost is a 5 reels, 20 paylines game whose standards are high through and through. Flawless graphics and animation, yes, but also substance and content to lend purpose to beauty.
In a yet another mixture of two rarely combined elements, the developer chose a rather simple but gorgeously opulent setting of an entrance into an ice cave as backdrops to a fairly simple theme of fruit slots. Blue hues of frozen rocks sit still while a gentle snow is quietly falling, giving the game just enough liveliness – we cannot overstate how tastefully done and subtle this animation is. Everything being in blue just make the multi-colored fruit on the reels pop so remarkably: striking colors are that much more underlined this way. On reels, you will find the assortment of vitamin-rich produce and crop: apples, lemons, cherries, watermelon, pomegranates (making its rare appearance here), strawberries, bananas and grapes as well as orange slices serving as a scatter symbol, a kiwi wild and a mixed fruit symbol as a bonus.
When one pictures fruit-themed slots, they rarely imagine an extraordinary musical score to go with it. But that is what makes Booongo so great in our eyes - they always come up with something totally unexpected in the sounds department. A majestic, orchestral movement, almost melancholic and wistful, would sweep you off your feet if you weren't already sitting. A great example of thinking outside the box, as the music presents the game with a complimentary dose of elegance and grace.
Betting Options and Functions
At the very bottom of the screen, a neat looking user interface gives access to an informative menu, with the general run down of paytable (info on value of every symbol), paylines diagram and how special symbols work. Total bet can be set from 0.20 to 100. Autoplay mode has an adjustable number of waves (from 10 to 100) and for even more time-efficiency, game speed can be set from normal to fast via a simple click. Player also has a constant overview of their winnings and remaining balance.
The wild symbol, substituting all symbols except scatter and bonus, is expandable and will only land on reels 2 or 4 or both at the same time, with all wins paid. When wilds appear on both reels 2 and 4, a player gets a free respin.
Landing three bonus symbols anywhere on reels will trigger a bonus game that is played on three reels on a side. The bonus game grid lines are paying out horizontally, vertically and diagonally and it comes with multipliers that can crack open a host of great bonuses.
Finally, landing three or more scatter symbols will commence a round of extra spins. Three scatters will give away 15 extra spins (18 for four and 21 for five scatter symbols) with a 5x on total bets. Scatters can become sticky when it appears anywhere on reels in conjunction with a wild symbol. During the expanding wild respin, the sticky scatter will stay on the reel and grant the player with more chances of winning extra spins.
Medium variance game as it is (RTP is 95.9%) and with a modest jackpot of 1500 coins, FruityFrost may not change your life dramatically in the event of a big win. However, it holds many surprises and fun bonus features that will be making their appearance more often than not. With gorgeous visuals and shockingly good audio, it is delicately understated and deserves all the praise it can get.
