The design here is bright and bouncy with the action taking place in a jam factory. The lower value A, K and Q symbols appear as jam jars. They’re joined by 4 high value smiling fruit symbols. The pears offers payouts of up to 5 times your stake per payline. Next come the lemons and orange which pay 25 times your stake and 50 times your stake respectively for a 5-in-a-row combination.
The tastiest fruit is the strawberry though. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket an award of 1, 10 or 100 times your stake. Helping to create the winners is the fruit case symbol which is the wild. This can land on all 5 reels and substitute for everything apart from the scatter.
The wilds can really come into their own when you get on a good run of Avalanches. After a winning spin, the successful symbols are crushed and new ones drop in and replace them. If another winner is created. another Avalanche takes place. These continue until no new winning combination hits.
What you really want to see is wilds featuring in the Avalanche wins as they give the payout a multiplier boost. This starts at 2x on the first Avalanche, 4x on the second and 6x on the third. If you manage to land 4 or more consecutive Avalanches. then any win boost the payout by a whopping 8x. After a winless Avalanche, the multiplier resets to 1x.
Fruit Case also comes with a Free Fall feature. You’ll receive a 3 times stake payout plus 10 free spins when you see 3 or more of the Free Falls symbol (the blender) on the same spin. The wild multipliers are in play here too. Re-triggers are on offer as well if you manage to land 3 scatters on the same free spin.
There’s a light-hearted, cartoon feel to Fruit Case. The design is simply done but works rather well. Likewise, the gameplay which revolves around the Avalanche reels. That can be a bit repetitive for some tastes but the wild multipliers certainly held our interest.
The theme won’t be for everyone. If you like Avalanche reels slot games, then you’ll probably want to tuck into Fruit Case. I also suggest you try Gonzo’s Quest (also by Net Entertainment) and Ecuador Gold from ELK Studios.
