Exotic Fruit Slot Review
Once in a while a game, film or book comes along that is so sweet and well-intended that is sweeps away the cynicism in me. Dammit. I love being cynical and hate approving of anything that doesn't have a wicked streak. Booming Games' video slot Exotic Fruit falls slap bang in this category. It's a slot that is so pleasant and benign that you just can't help liking it. When I began it I felt a childlike joy – something which life tends to suppress! So it's a rarity to find something that elicits pure, unadulterated fun. Look – when my co-workers came over, I closed the tab…I think that sums it up – it's a guilty pleasure. Guilty because in this day and age we only want to admit liking cool and edgy entertainment. This video slot warms its way into your heart across all platforms and devices. So close the door to your office and get ready to become a kid again!
4 reels and 15 paylines make up Exotic Fruit. Its has cartoonish symbols: blonde passion fruit girl, brunette pineapple girl, a purple-haired girl with equally strange fruit, coconut, star fruit, lychee, and pomegranate. The blonde girl is the wild, while the purple haired girl is the scatter. Controls are simple with a fairly standard layout: Bet Per Line, Lines, Win, Spin, Auto, Bet Max. Up top, there's info on Symbol Values, Balance Display, Bet Amount and General Game Settings. The autoplay is simple with no advanced options, but is easy to set.
Landing 3 or more scatters anywhere wins you 10 free spins. If you're lucky enough to get 3 scatters in your free spins round, another 10 free spins are added! (the number of spins is displayed in the spin counter)
There's a Perma 2-way feature, meaning all active paylines payout from left to right and right to left. A Mystery Wild Multiplier adds some action when it appears on reel 3. If it's part of a winning combination, those winnings are multiplied by 5x or 10x.
The cartoonish graphics are almost too cute and well drawn. The music is happy-go-lucky and fits in nicely. I did have to lower the volume – too much happiness for me! Performance wise it cruised along beautifully, and there were no issues.
I'm a bit rough around the edges, but this gets a double thumbs up from me. Luckily, this review is anonymous – I wouldn't really want my buddies to see me playing this one. But, I guarantee if any of them tried it they would love it! The extras are generous and the joy infectious. Enjoy this with a box of chocolates. SHH…you didn't hear it from me!
