Where to play
Design & Symbols
Fruit Rainbow is fairly simple and pretty enough to look at. Underneath the gameboard a swirling orange and white mixture of some sort swirls around almost looking like a recently stirred cup or coffee. From this odd, indecipherable colourful swirl, a bubbles float upwards against the purple background. There is no gameboard as such, just five floating reels of symbols with a thin red line dividing each reel. The game’s logo rests above the middle of the reels, a flash of rainbow against the 3D title of the game. The soundtrack, in my opinion, is probably the highlight of the game. It’s got the kind of upbeat hook you’d expect to find playing in an exotic beach resort, complete with Jamaican steel drums in the background.
Low value symbols are the distinctly non-fruity playing card suits, diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades. High value symbols are limes, bananas, cherries, oranges, and strawberries. Strawberries are the highest paying regular symbol, with 5 on a payline awarding 50x the bet size. The wild is a square of rainbow colours, and the scatter is a diamond.
- Stacked Symbols
- Scatter Pays
All symbols (with the exception of the diamond scatter) come stacked on all reels, increasing the likelihood of multiple win lines on a single spin. Even the wild symbols are stacked on all reels, and a full board of wilds pays Fruit Rainbow’s jackpot payout of 2,000x the bet size (as does a full board of strawberries or a full board of strawberries and wilds)
In this game the diamond scatter serves no purpose other than to provide some extra winning combos. As with any other scatter symbol, it doesn’t have to follow a set payline and any 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels pay as follows:
3 diamond scatters pay 5x the bet size.
4 diamond scatters pay 125x the bet size.
5 diamond scatters pay 500x the total bet.
Our Thoughts on Fruit Rainbow
I think its safe to say, for me at least, Fruit Rainbow firmly belongs among the not so fantastic selection of Pragmatic Play games. It seems like the ultimate portfolio filler and certainly required very little thought on behalf of the provider. Perhaps they just felt they needed a straight up-and-down fruity with no frills, no fuss, no features, and, unfortunately, no fun. I can’t deny that there still always seems to be a market of sorts for a no-nonsense slot, but its not for me. The payouts are good considering the stacked symbols, but the game is just so utterly tedious. By and large, I don’t mind giving the house its 3.5% edge for a few hours entertainment, but I think watching paint dry would be preferable to playing a few hours of Fruit Rainbow. Therefore, my advice would have to be to avoid this slot like the plague.
