Fresh from the developer which brought you Megaways is this online slot introducing the Triple Reaction engine – this is Opal Fruits from Big Time Gaming and it comes with free spins, collapsing reels and more than five thousand ways to win.
Opal Fruits is a six reel slot with three rows on the main set but horizontal reels above and below – this comprises the Triple Reaction; the top reel slides in from the left, the bottom reel from the right and they combine to provide 5625 ways to win.
There’s a colourful science fiction design to this game which seems to sideline the retro sweets of the title.
The higher value symbols include grapes, watermelons, plums and pears while 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild is the multicolour ‘Wild’ which substitutes for all standard symbols – in the base game it can also come with a 3x multiplier which is applied to any wild wins; the scatters are the golden letters ‘F’, ‘R’, ‘E’ and ‘E’.
The symbols in a winning combo will disappear to make way for more falling from above – this process (reactions) continues until there are no more wins.
This is triggered by landing the letters ‘FREE’ on the reels in any order for which you will receive ten free spins; this round is all about the multipliers applied to any wins and each extra scatter symbol will add +5x to the starting point.
When the round starts each winning reaction/collapse will increase the multiplier by 1x with no upper limit; reaching 10x awards an extra five spins.
Opal Fruits is a really entertaining slot and while the Triple Reaction may not be as ground-breaking as Megaways, it offers more innovation than most developers. The game itself it fast-moving, colourful, attractive and highly recommended.
