About Fruit Mania Slot
Fruit Mania is a 5-reel, 5-playline slot game from Playtech that is the very essence of what slots were in the beginning, fruit machines. The 5 reel, 5 pay line slot is as good as any of the traditional slot games but also comes with a progressive jackpot that is a major attraction. If you are looking for a retro slot, this is one game that fits the bill. The game is easy to operate and has its share of features and symbols in smaller measure when compared with other video slots today. The jackpot starts as $1250.00 and has reached an impressive $99,829, which offers more reasons to test the game at a Playtech powered casino. Fruit Mania comes with bonus game although it lacks any free spins feature. This is a fixed stake slot definitely worth a spin.
Fruits are the obvious choice of symbols in Fruit Mania. Oranges, Melons, Apples and Grapes appear as symbols on the reels with the Cherry reserved as the jackpot symbols. The bonus symbol is the all-consuming Sun while notably there is no Wild or Scatter symbol although a Red Cocktail is not a bonus symbol but acts as a scatter. It does not need to appear on an active pay line to win. Then again, there’s the occasional cocktail that appears in the background. The Cocktail can appear anywhere on the five reels to form a winning combination as long as three or more of the symbols appear.
The Payout Table and How To Win
The coin size is fixed at 0.25 per pay line with the minimum bet being 0.25. Players can bet up to 1.25 per spin. The largest payout is 5000 coins per line for the standard Jackpot other than the Progressive Jackpot.
The maximum possible jackpot value is $1250 which can be won by landing 5 jackpot symbols on an active pay line. To win the progressive you need to bet the maximum con value of 0.25 and 1 coin per pay line. A mere 0.25 bet could fetch a $1250 jackpot.
The progressive jackpot is only open to players who activate all the pay lines.
Fruit Mania may be a simple slot game but it does come with an interesting bonus round. The Special Bonus Round is unlocked when three Sun symbols land on consecutive pay lines from left to right. All you need is to choose one fruit on three rows. Each one reveals a different prize. So, it’s only luck that determines your prize.
To win the progressive jackpot the Cherry symbol must appear on the 5th pay line, so remember to have all the pay lines active.
Game Options and Playing Tips
For a chance to win the progressive jackpot you will need to play all 5 pay lines and wager the maximum bet of five coins per spin.
The Red Cocktail symbol acts as a scatter but is not a bonus symbol so you can benefit even if it does not land on active pay line.
Watch out for the Sun symbol that activates the special feature when it lands on three consecutive pay lines.
