No one has ever sat in their room and announced: "What the world needs right now are more fruit-themed slots!" But let's not be so quick to judge, surely Pragmatic Play wouldn't create an online slot like Extra Juicy without anything to stand out.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
The layout for Extra Juicy is a modified version of the classic fruit slot machine, taking on a 3x5 grid instead of 3x3. Against a bubbly, pastel backdrop are the familiar symbols such as lemon, cherries, orange, watermelon... with the golden bell symbol paying the heftiest sum (x100 for 5 symbols).
The slot is named 'Extra Juicy' for a reason: despite having only 10 paylines and an average RTP of 96.52%, it's highly volatile and can net players a 'juicy' max win of 60,000 times the stakes. Furthermore, Extra Juicy has a peculiar payline system where winning combinations don't have to start from the first reel, which opens up more winning possibilities.
However, that is pretty much the only novelty in the base game since Extra Juicy has no wild symbol. But collect all 3 Scatters on reel 1,3 and 5 to enter the bonus round with 12 progressive multiplier free spins. This multiplier starts with x1 and increases by 1 after each free spin so that in the twelfth spin, it will become x12.
When the reward can skyrocket is if players manage to land another 3 scatters to retrigger 12 more free spins, extending the progressive multiplier to x24. What's more, it's possible to retrigger the bonus spins up to 4 times, meaning you can play 60 free spins in total with a x60 multiplier on the last spin!
Alright, let's get the elephant out of the room first: no wild? That's a bummer. If you play slots long enough, you'll know that spinning without wilds is like going to the waterpark without friends. But even though the base game can be uneventful, everyone playing this slot plays for that juicy bonus game.
The first 12 free spins are nothing crazy, but the potential for 48 more free spins with the multiplier climbing all the way up to x60? Now that's both extra and juicy! Imagine getting a full screen of bells on that last spin - it's these kinds of 'no way he got that' moments that will be embedded into the slot streaming history, and I’m all for it.
