If you feel like a break from the online slots then this interactive release from Skillzz Gaming should prove an interesting diversion; it’s called Fruit Blast and it requires some input and a bit of logic so find out how it all works right here.
Fruit Blast plays out on a 5 x 5 grid which is situated on the sides of some beach bar at which work various different bartenders – as you progress through the game and level up you can choose your employee and the different features they offer.
There are just five basic symbols here, they’re all fruit and they include cherries, lemons, bunches of grapes, watermelons and pineapples. There are no wilds but there are jackpot and bonus icons.
After you click the ‘Play’ button the fruit will fall into the grid and then it’s up to you to pick out clusters of three or more matching fruit touching horizontally or vertically. More fruit will drop into place and this process continues until there are no more clusters. Each fruit will fill up the respective meters on the left hand side and award multipliers of your stake as shown.
Each piece of fruit appearing in a combo which wins money is also worth one star and these are collected and used to level up; levelling up gives you access to new bartenders and the following features are triggered by creating (and clicking on) clusters of bonus symbols:
- Summer (starting level) – no extra features.
- Aloha (level 2) – Hawaiian Shake awards an instant win of up to 8x the stake.
- Pat (level 5) – Five free games, each with a guaranteed win.
- Level 9 – picking game to win cash prizes.
- Level 12 – picking game to win cash prizes.
- Level 15 – one fruit meter fills up automatically.
- Level 19 – one free game + 10x multiplier.
- Level 22 – awards a cash prize which can then be doubled up.
- Level 25 – picking game with cash prizes and multipliers.
There are nine bartenders in total but we’ve only worked our way up to Pat at level 5 so we can’t elaborate too much beyond that.
Landing a cluster of at least three jackpot symbols will award 1000x your total bet.
Various achievements are available in this game and they serve a purpose here because attaining each one will award a number of stars which go towards levelling up.
Fruit Blast is a real winner – it may not be a slot but it’s got lots of charm, interactivity and cheerfulness and it includes plenty of features which make you want to carry on playing. It’s very highly recommended and it comes with an RTP ranging from 94.02% – 96.12%.
