Fruity Megaways: Slot Overview

Given the popularity of fruit and of Megaways, online slot Fruity Megaways has the sort of title that seems so obvious in retrospect you wonder why it hasn't been used before. The brains behind the release is UK-based outfit Iron Dog Studio, and it has made one heckuva delightful game right here. No matter how the rest of it plays out, if you'd like to come experience one of the more cheerful games reviewed in recent memory, then why not grab a healthy snack and let's take a look?

The first thing that stood out about Fruity Megaways was its sweeping soundtrack. Seriously, play this game on mute, and it loses a massive whack of its charm. We'd say more about it, but we espouse the virtues of the tune in the verdict section, so let's hold off till then. Visually, Fruity Megaways is a warm game, too; its grid is flanked by smiling bananas, a fruit juice smiles up in the right-hand corner, and the reels are smothered in happy fruit, which, yes, are also smiling or looking friendly. One thing not looking happy is the chopped apple floating in the water beneath the reels, but we wouldn't be surprised if you flipped it over to find it was also smiling. Basically, if you want a quick positive snap from a slot in your life, fire up Fruity Megaways for a moment to soak in the amiable ambience.

Despite the appearance, Fruity Megaways is a no-nonsense gambling machine, with a medium-high volatile math model producing a return to player of 96.06%. It is played on a Megaways run gaming panel where each of its 6 reels land 2 to 7 symbols on each spin. The number of symbols varies, as do ways to win, maxing out at 117,649 – the current ways amount is displayed in the top left corner of the screen. When you're ready to get the machine moving, bets of 10 p/c to $/€50 per spin may be selected.

Cheerful characters of the predominantly fruit/fruit drink-related variety appear on Fruity Megaways' symbols. From lowest value to highest, there are blueberries, an apple, an orange, a strawberry, a banana, some grapes, a watermelon slice, and some sort of rainbow berry. Hitting a 6-symbol winning way pays 0.8 to 5 times the bet. A coconut, which is actually a type of fruit called a drupe, is Fruity Megaways' wild symbol. Wilds substitute for all non-special symbols.

Fruity Megaways: Slot Features

Tumbles and scatters are the stepping stones to Fruity Megaways' features, such as the Pick Me feature, free spins, and Bonus Builder.

Tumbles

Each symbol used in a win is removed from the board by the tumble mechanic. All removed symbols are replaced by symbols falling down from above. Following the tumble, if a new win is created, then the tumble feature triggers again until no new win appears.

Pick Me Feature

In the base game, five consecutive winning tumbles awards the Pick Me feature. For this, 5 fruits are presented on the screen for players to pick one. The picked fruit will reveal a cash prize of 5, 10, 15, or 20 times the bet, or 10 free spins.

Free Spins

Otherwise, landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols awards 10, 15, 20, or 25 free spins, respectively. During free spins, getting 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 consecutive winning tumbles builds the Bonus Builder up. When free spins end, the highest level achieved on the Bonus Builder awards its prize.

Fruity Megaways: Slot Verdict

If you ever feel a bit down, a bit mopey, life's getting to you, and you'd like a slot-based pick me up, then it might be worth putting Fruity Megaways on for a while. Even if you don't end up playing it, the game has one of the most charmingly upbeat songs we've heard in a slot for a good long time. The music feels like wandering down a Parisian boulevard, twirling an umbrella, on the way to a favourite café or bistro to meet that new someone special in your life, while later on, it starts pattering with rain, while the two of you meander arm in arm around a gallery, soaking up the art.

The rest of Fruity Megaways, while quite swell, didn't live up to the easy, carefree living, old-school Disney vibes of its soundtrack. It's darn cute, though, thanks to the way Iron Dog Studio has brought the fruit to life by giving it faces and personality. However, when setting the warm artwork and tunes to the side, what's left isn't so cuddly. Fruity Megaways' gameplay boils down to waiting for enough consecutive tumbles to hit to trigger the Pick Me feature or enough scatters to progress to free spins. Not a lot happened in between, which meant quite a lot of downtime. Once free spins trigger, again, it's largely a case of trying to get as many consecutive tumbles to occur to progress through the Bonus Builder feature.

It means if you're gaga for games which perk up when enough tumbles have occurred, then Fruity Megaways might be right up your street. One slightly disappointing aspect, though, is Fruity Megaways' meagre (for a Megaways game) winning potential of 5,000x the bet. However, with everything else that's going on in Fruity Megaways, it doesn't feel like players will be sparking up this fruit game to chase down the biggest wins in online slots.

Fair

There’s entertainment to be had for sure, but Fruity Megaways doesn’t “pop” enough to stand out against its competition.
