- but why not try one of these?
Fruit Smoothies is one of an increasing number of three reel slots which are appealing to a crossover audience; this online game from Microgaming includes the basic operations of a classic slot added to a number of bonus features and some really fast-moving action which all add up to a top notch gaming experience.
Fruit Smoothies has just the three reels and one payline and, as is often the case, fruit is the theme here; the reels are set against the backdrop of the Las Vegas strip at night and that’s always a good start.
The symbols are slightly sparkly assortment of fruit including cherries, strawberries, apples, bananas, oranges and melons and then there’s a Fruit Smoothies logo which features a melon and orange complete with smiles and sunglasses.
You don’t actually win any money by making winning combinations in the main game; what you do win is free spins on a different reel which guarantees wins. The number of spins you receive depends on the combo you matched – for example you’ll get one for matching three cherries all the way up to fifteen for matching three Fruit Smoothies logos.
The Winspins start automatically and you’ll win something every time the reels stop. As you can see from the video below it’s also possible to land ‘extra spin’ symbols which award a random number of extra goes. Once the spins are over you’ll be taken back to the base game.
Nudges & Holds
Nudges are awarded randomly and can be side to jog symbols down one place at a time to try and form a winning combination. The feature can then be reposted with Nudge Repeat, gambled using Nudge Gamble or can be banked for one more spin.
Holds are offered occasionally and should be used when you have two matching symbols and are hoping for a third.
This is a randomly awarded bonus which will hold one reel and then spin the others for a win.
Let ’em Spin Feature
The signboard will sometimes recommend you to Let ’em Spin despite ‘holds’ being available – this always results in a win.
Fruit Smoothies Online Slot Playing Tips
Keep an eye on the electronic noticeboard because it’s easy to automatically use those holds when they’re offered and quickly ignore the hint to ‘Let em Spin’.
This slot is great fun and it’s tempting to keep spinning the reels because you know there’s another bonus feature just around the corner. The fruit-related puns on the noticeboard somehow remain strangely amusing.
