The Fruit Bonanza game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go are a growing provider in the industry and have a rapidly expanding portfolio of both slots games and clients. They do offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Play ‘n Go do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such we know that the house edge for Fruit Bonanza is 6.95%.
The Fruit Bonanza game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 9 paylines, playing from left to right, excluding Scatters and Bonus symbols.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Scatter”.
Jackpot – The Jackpot symbol is the “Horn of Plenty”.
The most valuable symbol in the game the “7”. Two “7” symbols will multiply the bet by 7, three “7” symbols will multiply the bet by 70, four “7” symbols will multiply the bet by 350 and five “7” symbols will multiply the bet by 3500.
The game needs to be played with the maximum number of coins if you are going to trigger the “fruit”, “juice”, “bonanza” or “super” jackpots. Less than the maximum means that 3 jackpot symbols will gain you 50 times the bet, 4 jackpot symbols with gain you 500 times the bet and 5 will gain you 5000 times the bet.
Fruit Bonanza has the look of a traditional slots game. If it’s an old-fashioned, one-armed bandit that you’re after then Fruit Bonanza may well fit that bill. All the classic symbols are there, from cherries to bells to horse shoes. There’s essentially no bonuses to talk about, the only real features are the scatter symbol and the progressive jackpot. Some might argue that this is traditional, others might say it’s old fashioned and out of touch with the modern slots player. What is clear is that the game looks as good as it can for its theme and it has a house edge that is very high. The house edge alone is enough for me to say that this game should be avoided. I’d also argue that traditionalist or not, you should expect more from your slots game than something you can find down your local pub or bar.
