This is one way to get three of your five-a-day fix: spin three reels jam-packed with fruit. In fact, the fruits on offer in Fruit Fiesta 3 Reel are so numerous that not only would you get your recommended daily intake but you’d be able to open up a smoothie store. In a virtual reality where anything is possible maybe that is what the future holds for this classic online slot from Microgaming, but in this reality it’s got everything you’ll need for some sweet and sticky classic slots action.
When you read “classic” this can often be substituted for “basic”, and to some degree you can say this of Fruit Fiesta 3 Reel. This is trimmed-down slots fare; no bells or whistles here. Even the reel case is designed like a classic fruit machine, with the pay table sitting beneath the three reels for our constant and easy reference. The fruits, BARs, bells and 7s that make up the game’s symbols are nicely drawn and spaced on the reels, and get this: this game has three pay-lines!
For modern and regular online slots fans this may be an instant turn-off, but for more adventurous players it is a chance to experience pared-down game-play. Every cloud has a single lining, and while this title doesn’t go whole hog like the modern video slots we are used to playing at our favourite casino house there are still thrills to be had in simple game-play. Plus, this slot is actually way ahead of its time, for it is progressive. Not only is it a chance for us all to step back in time (A Hot Slot Time Machine?) without having to travel at 88mph to get back there, but we can also bag ourselves a whopping progressive win as we do so.
It is testament to the classic nature of Fruit Fiesta 3 Reel that there is no dedicated bonus round as such. All bonuses are to be found in the base game through the payouts for landing the relevant symbols across the game’s single pay-line. We also have the choice to play each spin using 1-3 coins with a fixed coin size of 0.25 credits. The higher the coin value, the higher each win becomes.
Fruit Fiesta 3 Reel does practically show off for a three reel, three pay-line slot with a dedicated Wild symbol – the Game Logo. Any Game Logo pays out a minimum of 6 coins, but landing three Game Logo Wilds will bag 800 or 1600 coins when played at one or two coin bets. Spin with three coins bet and land three of these Fruit Fiesta Wilds and we are looking a progressive jackpot straight in the chops.
At first site this slot may seem basic, but the win potential playing at maximum coins make it a must-visit on the classic slot tour. Time to get fruity!
