Juicy Fruits by Pragmatic Play offers a modern take on fruit slots with more features and also more new fruits, each one looking as mouth-watering as ever. To play Juicy Fruits is like drinking a tasty tropical concoction - it’s an energized experience with lots of powerful and fun moments.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Even though Juicy Fruits has the classic slot machine theme, from the first glance at the 5x5 grid layout with 50 paylines it's obvious that the gameplay is not going to be standard.
The symbols are everything you would expect: bells, lemons, limes, oranges, kiwis, and of course the number 7, which pays 24x the stakes for a full line. The volatility here is full beast-mode at 5/5, and the max win is capped at 5,000x the bet (quite impressive for a so-called 'fruit slot'). Moreover, Pragmatic Play ensures that the RTP is up to standards at 96.51%.
The game revolves around wild symbols as its main feature in the base game. Not only does the wild symbol replace everything but scatters, it also comes in different sizes as well - 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, or 5x5.
Those who want to enter the Juicy Fruits free spins round have to land 3 or more scatter symbols represented by shiny diamonds. The round begins with 6 free spins and a 1x1 wild symbol which is always present on the reels, moving to a random position after every spin. Every third scatter that players collect during the bonus game will retrigger the feature with 1-3 bonus spins and the roaming wild symbol increases its size gradually: from 1x1 to 2x2 and so on.
Unfortunately, the free spins feature can only be retriggered a maximum of 4 times. However, if you initially trigger the feature by landing 4 or 5 scatters, the bonus round begins with 1 or 2 scatter symbols already collected. Players who are eager to enter the special round again can turn on Ante Bet, which costs 20% more for every bet but it doubles the chances of getting scatters.
Juicy Fruits is a fresh take on the classic fruit machine trope in the slot gaming industry. Having a wild symbol appearing on the base and bonus game grid in different sizes is a pretty fun and exciting addition to the gameplay. However, the ultimate 5x5 Wild rarely shows during the base game so keep your expectations in check.
Overall, it is a quite enjoyable release. Collecting Scatters in the bonus game and gaining extra spins and bigger Wilds is certainly the highest point of the gameplay and it has the power to keep the atmosphere suspenseful. That’s the main reason why I keep coming back to Juicy Fruits!
