Are you someone who enjoys playing strategy games? If you fancy playing a popular slot online that offers game dynamics akin to the likes of Bejeweled and Candy Crush, look no further than Fruit Blast from Skillzz Gaming. Fruit Blast offers a unique online slot experience at WinkSlots that’s somewhat more hands-on than your average video slot.
Rather than operating as a conventional five-reel slot, Fruit Blast’s game screen displays a 5x5 grid whereby players must land three or more matching symbols in adjacent rows or columns, as you would when you play Candy Crush. The 5x5 grid is set within the backdrop of a tropical beach bar, which could be anywhere you want it to be!
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Fruit Blast reminds you of an old-school 8- or 16-bit video game. The visuals are a tad simplistic and the soundtrack is somewhat rudimentary, meanwhile there is a ‘level up’ feature in the gameplay that acts as another nod to classic platform video games. Better still, each time you level up in Fruit Blast you will play with a brand-new bartender, each of whom comes with their own unique bonus feature.
Although Fruit Blast might look like your typical classic online fruit machine, the gameplay is somewhat different. Unlike most other video slots available at WinkSlots, where your aim is to line up the base game symbols along a predetermined fixed payline, this game requires you to land ‘clusters’ of three or more fruit symbols in patterns to build potential payouts.
If you want to start playing Fruit Blast, you’ll need to set the size of your stake for the game. This can range from £0.50 to £100 per ‘spin’. You’ll then need to hit the ‘Play’ button to commence the fruity action. From that moment, fruit symbols will fall into place on the 5x5 grid. You will then need to get ‘clusters’ of three or more matching fruit symbols that are touching either vertically or horizontally.
Once you find a cluster of matching fruits, these fruits will explode and disappear, with more fruit symbols falling down the grid into their place. The game continues until you can find no more clusters on the grid. Each time you find matching fruits, you will fill up the win multiplier meters displayed to the left of the 5x5 grid. Once one of these meters is full, you will win the multiplier displayed. The orange is the most valuable win multiplier meter, with the chance to win 10x your initial game stake!
There are four additional win multiplier meters available:
Every piece of fruit that appears in a cluster that wins you money is also worth one bonus star. These bonus stars are accumulated during the base game action and can be used to ‘level up’ your gameplay. If you are lucky enough to level up, you will get to play with new bartenders above your 5x5 grid and a host of new features activated on the grid by creating new clusters of bonus icons:
Finally – don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the triple-seven Jackpot symbol. If you can land a cluster of three or more Jackpot symbols you will be awarded the game’s maximum 1,000x jackpot!
Payout Maximum — The maximum jackpot available in Fruit Blast is 1,000x. This is generated by landing clusters of three or more 777 Jackpot symbols.
Number of Paylines — There are no predetermined paylines in Fruit Blast. Instead, all of the action relates to the number of clusters you can form on the 5x5 grid.
Wild Feature — There are no wild symbols in Fruit Blast, although there is a hierarchy of fruit symbols on the paytable, with oranges capable of triggering a 10x win multiplier.
Free Spins — You can win additional ‘spins’ of Fruit Blast when you level up and work your way through the levels. Reach Level five to get five free games.
Special Feature — The main special features in Fruit Blast are triggered by levelling up and reaching the prize-based levels displayed above.
Mobile Functionality — If you are thinking of playing Fruit Blast at home or on your commute to work, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can manage both thanks to the WinkSlots mobile app. Available on iOS and Android devices, the app ensures a seamless experience of Fruit Blast and all our other jackpot slots!
