Fruit Salad Slots

Fruit-SaladFruit Salad is an extremely colorful and lively game, one of the Microgaming classics. The game has gorgeous colors, and it’s not afraid to use them all. With a classic game that has a fruit theme, what you can usually expect is a mix of old pub slot symbols, but in this case we get more of a tropical vibe. I’ll be honest though, despite the colorful design this slot doesn’t manage to leave a great first impression. You very much get the feeling that it’s an older game.

There are 3 reels on Fruit Salad’s 3 reels, the action relying both on regular symbols and on a wild. The jackpot of $25,000 is a decent target to have as well.

Features of Fruit Salad

Fruit Salad is the kind of 3 reel game that has at least one feature in it, and it’s the symbol that awards the top jackpot as well. This symbol has the power to act as a substitute, so it’s the wild feature. The Fruit Salad Bowl is the symbol that has all the power in the game, offering the top jackpot while also being a wild.

It is used as a wild when you have one or two symbols on one of the paylines. With two wilds present, whatever symbol is in third position will determine what the combination will pay you. With one wild, the other two positions have to be occupied by the same type of symbol, in order for a combo to be formed.

Ideally, you will get an entire line occupied by wilds, as this awards the best payouts of the slot, including the 5,000 coins jackpot.

Betting options and jackpots

The slot will give you the option to choose as many of the three lines as you want, using a single coin in each case. That coin will start at just $0.25, but you can increase its denomination up to $5. The total bet, with all three lines covered, is $15.

As for the top prize, the fruit salad bowl will get you 5,000 coins if the combo forms on the third payline, in which case you can take home up to $25,000.

Design and symbols

The slot looks pretty much like a salad of colors, especially the multi-colored background image that makes you feel like you’re looking at a rainbow. The symbols can be just as colorful and vivid. The layout is the standard one, using the paytable on the right and the reels and logo on the left. It’s not a very good looking game, but I appreciated the use of tropical fruits in it, instead of the ones that are so common in these older slots.

Symbols: Fruit Salad Bowl (5,000 coins, wild), Passion Fruit (300 coins), Orange (150 coins), Yellow Three Bar (80 coins), Purple Two Bar (30 coins) and Red One Bar (15 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The fruit theme is a bit dated by now, and there is no shortage of classic slots that are inspired by it, so go for it only if you’re a fan of the genre.

The Fruit Salad slot machine is offered through the Microgaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
