Fruit Blast as the name suggests is a fruit-themed slot from Microgaming. It is a low to medium variance game that requires players to connect three or more similar symbols on the screen.
The connection can either be made vertically or horizontally. Alternatively, the connections can be made both vertically and horizontally.
Mastering the Game
In order to have a winning chance with playing Fruit Blast, you need to have an understanding of the different symbols in the game, the layout and any available bonuses. Fruit Blast utilizes a 5×5 grid and requires players to complete combinations of three symbols and above.
Basically, players will be dealing with five symbols-pineapples, cherries, lemons, grapes and watermelons. Unlike most Microgaming video slots, there is no Wild symbol in Fruit Blast.
However, this should put a damper on the game as there is a jackpot and bonus feature available to help make for an interesting game.
Now that you have an idea of what to expect, you may start playing by simply clicking on the ‘play’ button. Once done, you will have to make fruit combinations either vertically, horizontally or both vertically and horizontally.
There are not many symbols to deal with which goes to show just how simple it is to play the game if you so wish.
Playing for Real Money or for Free
You may wish to play for free before venturing into a real money game. In that case, you will be able to familiarize yourself with different aspects of the game so that when you play for actual, money, you are in a better position to know what to do and what not to do.
If you should participate in a cash-based game, then you will be required to bet anywhere from 60p to £100.
There are 25 levels to climb, and a Scatter symbol to help move things along. Unfortunately, there is no wild symbol to help complete winning combinations.
The Scatter symbol which is characterized by a pink bonus icon complete with stars is used to booster the play up the different levels.
The jackpot icon (fruit blast) on the other hand will help activate the 1000x jackpot prize. In order to get at the prize, you will have to activate at least three fruit blasts (jackpot symbols).
Play for Real Money
If you are playing for real money, then you will be glad to know that the more ‘stars’ you collect, the higher your chances of being boosted to the next level which means the greater your chances of winning prizes.
Let’s have a look at some of the levels and what they have to offer:
- The 1st level has no special rewards.
- The 2nd gives you an 8x multiplier for the amount you bet.
- The 5th level lets you enjoy a maximum of 5 free games.
- The 12th level allows you take a picking of the different games in order to win prizes (cash).
- The last level 25th allows you a nice picking of multipliers and cash prizes.
