Fruit Mania is one of those retroactive slots that reminds you of the simpler games of yesteryear. Presented with bright almost and neon like colors, the graphics are cute, fresh and definitely fruity. The icons are very colorful and they include cherries, grapes, plums, oranges, apples, lemons and strawberries.
The gameplay is kept simple with five reels and only five pay lines. The coin values are fixed at 0.25 and you can wager one to five coins giving you a betting range of 0.25 to 1.25 which won’t break your bank very quickly.
Even with such limited features it’s still worth playing for the progressive jackpot because the minimum amount resets to $1,250 and although it doesn’t reach the millions like other progressive slots, it does climb consistently and pays out regularly. In fact the average pay out has been around $16,811 per win and goes out every four days. For a chance at that progressive jackpot you will need to have all pay lines active, i.e. bet the max and land five cherry symbols on pay line five. And even if they’re not on line five it can still brighten your day with 5,000 coins. Amazingly, the progressive can be won with any sized wager.
In the options you can set up 1000 automatic spins and the delays between them, and fear not, you can stop your auto spins at any time.
Sticking to this fruity theme, the scatter is depicted by a cocktail glass icon and you will win a prize if three or more occur anywhere on the reels and not necessarily on an active pay line. Three cocktail glasses pays you 5x your stake, four pays 40x and five pays you 500x.
Fruit Mania’s uncomplicated style does sadly lack wild symbols.
The only other aspect worth mentioning is the inclusion of a life-giving sun symbol that powers up the fruit and triggers a straightforward little mini game. All you need is three or more sun symbols on consecutive pay lines, but they must be active. Another screen is brought up where three rows of fruit are highlighted and it’s up to the player to pick a lucky one in order to win a bonus prize. The bonuses are tallied and can be as much as 25x the total bet. The game is then resumed on the standard reels.
