One doesn’t have to look too hard to find a fruit-themed online slot; most of the major developers have released a variation on that subject at one point or another and we’ve reviewed more than a few. Berry Blast is one more to add to that list and this one is from Amaya Gaming but originally designed by Chartwell before their acquisition.
Berry Blast plays out over a fruity five reels and thirty paylines. The backdrop to those reels is a sunny landscape full of berries of various colours. The high value base game symbols are an orange, a plum, a cherry and an apple; J, Q, K and A are the lower values.
The wild symbol is a bunch of grapes with a leaf attached; the scatters are grapes without the leaf. Plums and strawberries are bonus symbols with their own respective mini-games.
This is quite a brief feature and you can trigger it by landing the fee spins strawberry symbols on reels one and five in the same spin. You will now receive three spins with a 3x multiplier applied to each win.
This is a slightly more interesting feature and it’s triggered by landing the plum bonus symbol on an active payline on reels one, two and three. You will now get to play a Wheel Of Fortune-style game which you start by picking two of the four green fruits around the outside of the wheel.
Each pick gives you a spin which results in a credit prize unless you land on the lemon wedge in which case you advance to the next level with increased prizes and two more spins. Repeat the process here and if you can make it to the third wheel the prizes are even greater.
Berry Blast Online Slot Playing Tips
The bonus can only be triggered on an active payline so give yourself the best chance by playing with maximum lines.
Berry Blast isn’t going to win any prizes for high quality graphics or animations but it’s quite good fun nonetheless. Two bonus features are always welcome and an RTP of 97% is quite healthy.
