Fruit Fiesta 3-Reel Slot Review
Fruit Fiesta online slot, from Microgaming, comes in two versions, with 3 and 5 reels. You’re obviously reading about the 3 reel version of this slot machine, the one which tries harder to make it look like a classic. The look is not exactly the right one if it tries to mimic a classic game, but the feature list is very short, having only a wild on it. The theme is based on fruit and on other types of classics. The big advantage of this game appears to be the progressive jackpot which it can award, with a fixed payout also in place, capable of reaching $400. The game has 3 reels and 3 paylines.
Betting and Prizes
You may pick how many coins you will use, determining the number of active lines, but the coin value will be fixed at only $0.25. It’s obviously a very cheap game to play, the range of the bet only going from $0.25 to $0.75.
Given the wager value which can be used, I’d recommend you always pick the maximum number of coins. This is the only way to win the progressive jackpot, which has an average win value of about $23,000. The prizes with fixed returns will pay up to 1,600 coins, which would mean $400.
Fruit Fiesta 3-Reel Slot Features
The game logo, sporting the words Fruit Fiesta, will give you some very valuable prizes and even acts as the wild in this case. You can use this wild to replace any other icon in use here, since it’s the only one to be able to act as a feature. If it happens that a wild appears on one of the paylines, once or twice, while the rest of the combo is in place already, it will behave like the other symbols on the line and the combo will form.
When you get three wild symbols on the first or second paylines, the rewards will be higher than the rest, up to 800 or 1,600 coins, respectively. The third payline is the important one though, since the same three wild symbols will give you a progressive jackpot if they all land there. The jackpot’s win values in the past have been anywhere between $1,800 and $94,000, with the average win being at $23,000+.
Theme & Design
The theme is a pretty normal one for this kind of game, the symbols showing off only things that you get from pub slots in general. The layout is done differently though. The position of the reels is the same, in the top left corner, but the other three sections of the game all include paytable information, including the entire bottom section. The symbols start with the logo, and then continue with two types of 7s (rainbow and purple colored), with the purple 1Bar, 2Bar and 3Bar, with pineapple, plums, oranges, melon and golden bells.
Fruit Fiesta, in its 3 reel version, appears to be a rather interesting game, one which can offer a progressive jackpot while requiring only a minimum investment.
