It’s the Mighty Grapes vs. the Pineapples in RTG’s newest video slot release – Fruit Bowl XXV – that has fruit fans and slot players cheering on some wins!
This 25-line, 5-reel real series video slot will put a smile on your face with the comical, whacky fruit football theme, the win-win feature, as well as the minor and major random jackpots. The game has a wild symbol, scatter symbol and a bonus feature as well. There are a total of eleven regular play symbols in the game all of which are American football themed. Only three of the symbols require a minimum of two on a payline to be awarded a win – these symbols include a stadium, a banana quarterback character and a pineapple receiver character. The highest paying symbol during regular play is the stadium and will award you 2,500 coins if five appear on a payline.
The wild symbol of the game is the grape runner character and this substitutes for all other symbols of the game with the exception of the scatter symbol, in order to help you complete a winning combination. The Fruit Bowl XXV logo is the scatter symbol of the game. Three or more scatters appearing anywhere on your screen will trigger the Fruit Bowl Feature.
During play of the Fruit Bowl Feature, a football field is revealed. You are initially awarded with five free spins with a one time multiplier once the feature is triggered. Your objective during play of the feature is to increase your free spins and multiplier which is done by trying to bypass up to four opponents in succession on your way to a touchdown. You begin by selecting a movement choice (left or right) to move around your opponent. Each opponent evaded will award you five free spins and a chance to increase your multiplier by 1. Once you are tackled, the feature game ends. Any re-trigger of the feature during free spin play will award you five additional games!
The Fruit Bowl Feature also includes a Win-Win Feature! This is active only when 25 lines are played and triggers at the end of the Fruit Bowl Feature if your overall free spin win (excluding trigger wins) totals ten times your triggering bet or less.
No win during the Fruit Bowl Feature will award you a bonus prize of 250 times your bet. Zero to 2 times your bet awards you 25 times your bet, two to five times your bet wins awards you ten times your bet and five to ten times your bet awards you five times your bet.
Beginning with $50, I played all 25 lines at $1.00 per spin. Within a total of 147 spins, the wild symbol completed a total of 62 winning combinations for me with some of those wins ranging between $7 – $10 on the high side of wins. The Fruit Bowl Feature triggered once in which I won $18.84. I ended play only down by a total of $23.
I really enjoyed this slot. What I enjoyed most about it is that the wild symbol appeared so often that it kept me in play for quite some time. I liked the fact that there is a win-win feature on this game and also two random jackpots as well. The characters are very comical & really captured my attention, and I liked that there are three character symbols that only require a minimum of two on a payline to be awarded a win. Although the wins are low in value, it certainly did help me stay in play for awhile as they did appear often with the use (again) of the wild symbol. I would recommend this slot to all RTG slot fans to play.
