The Big Froot slots game can be found at casinos offering Genii software. Genii is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Genii focus heavily on slots games. The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable for the newer games in their catalogue. For the older games, as Genii is partnered with UK licensed operators and the UKGC license requires the publication of this information, RTP figures can be found on numerous casino sites. As such we know that the house edge for Big Froot is 4%.
Big Froot is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game plays over 15 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Big Foot” symbol. The “Big Foot” symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the Free Spins and Scatter symbols. The Wild symbol is the most valuable in the game, with 5 as part of a winning payline winning you 5000 coins. All wins including a Wild symbol will be doubled.
Free Spins– The “Blender” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. 3 or more will trigger the game’s Free Spins feature.
Scatter – The “Smiley Square Face” is the game’s Scatter symbol. 3 or more Scatter symbols will payout regardless of paylines. 3 “Smiley Square Face” symbols will win you 7 coins. 4 “Smiley Square Face” symbols will win you 50 coins. 5 “Smiley Square Face” symbols will win you 150 coins.
Free Spins – Landing 3 of the “Blender” symbols will award you with 8 Free Spins. 4 of the “Blender” symbols will award you with 12 Free Spins. 5 of the “Blender” symbols will award you with 15 Free Spins. Free Spins can be re-triggered and all wins are multiplied by x2.
Big Froot is an interesting game because its pixilation makes it look like it is under-produced, but intentionally so. I like what Genii have done here; their best with the limited recourses that they have. Instead of trying to make the game look amazing and missing the mark they have gone for something that is underplayed and cartoonish. Of course, the game won’t blow you away with its aesthetic, but it will engage you. The features are OK for a Genii game, but nothing compared to their standout: “Rise of the Spartans”. You get wilds, free spins and a scatter, but no bonus or little additional features to keep things even more interesting. I’m pleased to say that the house edge, whilst not exactly good value is only just higher than we would like to see. All in all, a decent offering from Genii, certainly one of their better games.
