New Slot: Fruit vs Candy (Microgaming)
With the year coming to a close most providers are making plans for the future 12 months. One of these providers is Microgaming which has announced their latest title called Fruit vs Candy. The game can be considered a skin of Lost Vegas, another slot by Microgaming that launched earlier this year. Fruit vs Candy is scheduled for release 05.01.2017. Upon release the game will be hosted by most major online casinos.
Fruit vs Candy is a 5 reels and 243 paylines slot, which will be available to play on desktop and most mobile devices.
The game's theme is pretty straightforward and it’s all about candy and fruits.
The player can choose to play with candy or fruits as the main symbols.
The difference between the two involves the types of free spin features.
Players have the option to change mid game between fruits or candy mode.
This is done by clicking the button on the right upper corner of the screen.
The high value symbols on the reels are all theme related and feature different types of fruits and candy.
10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower value symbols. The scatter symbols shows the words ‘Free Spins’ written on flashy colors.
The wild symbol is the game’s logo and it can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Goodie Bag Feature
This is a random feature that can be triggered in the base game after a non winning spin.
A bag will appear and award a certain cash price.
Sugar Rush Feature
Another random feature which can be triggered, in the base game, after a non winning spin.
When triggered, every high value symbol landed, during that spin, will give a certain cash price.
Moreover if even one scatter symbol is present on screen, that will be enough to trigger the free spins.
The free spins feature is triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols anywhere in view.
It can only be triggered during the Sugar Rush feature when at least one scatter is visible on the reels.
The free spins will be played differently depending on if the player has choose candy or fruit mode.
- Fruit Mode - During this feature mode the game will play as a rolling reels type of slot. But instead of the winning combo symbols disappearing, on this feature the lower value symbols will be taken away. Each symbol taken away will award a certain cash prize. When a symbol is taken away a new symbol will fall in its place. If any or more of the new symbols are low value, they in turn will be also taken away and replaced with new ones. This feature will continue until no more low level symbols are visible on the reels. When the feature has ended the player will get all the cash prizes of the symbols taken away plus the payout from any possible winning combo made, at the end, by the remaining high value symbols.
- Candy Mode - During this feature all higher value symbols can appear stacked on the reels. Landing a stacked symbol that covers the entire reel will sugared that particular reel. Infected reels can turn single wild symbols into stacked wilds. The free spins will continue until all 5 reels have been sugared.
Fruit vs Candy is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 95.77%. The maximum win on a spin is 2155 times the stake.
The game lacks originality as it’s pretty similar to other Microgaming titles.
However players can still enjoy the game-play, features and hit potential big wins.
