ALL ABOUT FRUIT BLOX SLOT
If you are looking for evidence of the shifting landscape of online slots in 2018 then look no further than the transformation happening at Red Tiger in recent months. Not so long ago this slot studio kicked out quite ordinary games that were well off the radar of the kind of slots fanatics who worship at the altar of Big Time Gaming and the Megaways™ revolution.
Then out of nowhere came Laser Fruit, a game that set new records in win ways! 60,000,000+ was it? The expanding reel set, super-high variance and massive payout potential showed that Red Tiger had taken a look around and seen where the industry was headed and made a decision to get on board.
Then in October we had the news that a new Megaways™ deal was on the cards and Red Tiger was the next studio in line to start building games on the famous BTG engine – expect the first release from this deal to arrive in casinos in early 2019.
Before then we have Fruit Blox – another high variance slot with great potential, based on a classic neon fruit machine design and cluster pays mechanic. It’s a great looking slot and will definitely be worth a spin when it hits general release in November 2018.
Fruit Blox Game Set-Up
This slot has a 6 reel and 4 row set up and 20 fixed paylines, with clusters of matching symbols connecting vertically or horizontally required to create a win. The biggest wins are available when you hit the free spins round where extra wilds are added to the reels.
Fruit Blox is a high variance slot and available from 20p to £10 per spin.
Fruit Blox Game Symbol
The game has that neon-fruit machine look and feel that Starburst, Laser Fruit and Twin Spin have made popular. The symbols are all classic slots ones, with eleven in total: cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes, bars, bells, stars and Lucky 7s.
The 7s are the highest paying symbol of all and a full screen can land you 8,192x.
Look out as well for the wild that substitutes for all other symbols. It also pops up more regularly in the bonus round where one symbol is replaced with wilds in all instances – creating more winning opportunities.
Big and Mega Blox – the game of course gets its name from the super-sized blox of symbols that land on the reels. They come in 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 Mega Blox and when they land adjacent to one another then the win value is doubled.
There is also a feature in the game where the reels start to vibrate and then spin as pairs – something like Twin Spin. This event can trigger a big win scenario or something less dramatic. This is a feature of other Red Tiger Gaming slots too.
Fruit Blox Slot Features
Free Spins Bonus Round
To hit the free spins round and the big wins you’ll need to land Free Spins symbols which itself can come as a normal tile or a Mega Block. The number of spins is determined by the size of the symbols – a single gets you 1 spin, whilst 4 in a Mega Block get you 4 spins.
Watch out as well for free spins symbols landing next to each other – this doubles the number of spins too. This creates the potential for a massive cache of free spins.
Extra Wilds – Before your free spins round starts one symbol will be chosen as a wild and when it lands during the free spins round it will automatically transform into a wild. For every time that the Free Spins round is re-triggered, another symbol is chosen as wild. This creates the opportunity for lots of free spins combined with lots of transforming wilds – EPIC WIN POTENTIAL!
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
This slot will certainly grab the attention of high variance big players and big win chasers. There is lots of potential for some good runs in the bonus round when you hit multiple re-triggers and lots of transforming wilds. On top of that, this game looks and feels great to play. We highly recommend Fruit Blox to play this autumn – just beware that it can be tricky to reach the free spins so take care!
