After the success of Fruit Party, Pragmatic Play has decided it's time for yet another adventure with cute berries and citruses spinning around. Don't worry - the funny, relaxing atmosphere, lovable symbols and quirky soundtracks are all there in the Fruit Party 2 slot. But the whole slot comes with a little more edge and distinctive changes.
Betting Options & Bonus Features
Located in a similar familiar countryside background, the large grid setup is back in all its glory with 7 reels and 7 rows with cluster and tumble mechanics. As in the original release, the most valuable clusters are made up of 15+ matching symbols, while the highest wins bring strawberry cards awarding up to 150x the bet.
The RTP is slightly increased to 96.53%, while the volatility level is boosted to high. What remained exactly the same however is the winning potential of up to 5,000x the bet.
Whenever the tumble feature removes a cluster in the base game, there's a chance a Wild will drop into one of the empty spaces. Besides its power to substitute for symbols, Wild comes with a multiplier value starting at 2x.
Every time Wilds land in a tumble sequence, the multiplier doubles up to a maximum of 256x. In case more than one Wild participates in a winning cluster, their multiplier values are added together before being applied, so Wilds can be used in multiple clusters at the same time.
Fruit Party 2 also brings more free spins, instead of the initial ten seen in the first slot. Alongside a payout of up to 100x the stake, here the appearance of 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 golden fruits Scatters at the same time award 10, 12, 15, 20, or 25 free spins respectively.
Another batch of three Scatters falling on reels during the bonus round, retriggered the feature with 5 additional free spins. While free spins are played Wild multiplier starts with 3x instead of 2x value, going all the way up to an incredible 729x.
Those who can't wait to catch enough Scatters can trigger the feature via the Bonus Buy option. For a price of 100x the bet, 3 to 7 Scatters are randomly selected to land and activate from 10 to 25 free spins.
Troops, you know I love Fruit Party and that some big wins were scored there. It is a great slot, so why there's another part to it? Truly, what's the point in fixin’ something that ain't broken?
That said, although Fruit Party 2 might be completely redundant as the original is amazing, it is still a nice, funny game with a lot of potentials. The trick is to watch it separately from its prequel, which is the hardest part. Once you do, this fruity fiesta becomes a true joy to play.
