They are known for some successful titles, such as ‘Dragon’s Fire‘. Albeit they have many releases that just don’t impress the casino community. Because of using the same features and mechanics .The last release was titled ‘Dragon’s Fire Megaways‘, which is a very good sequel and excited some players already. Now we have a new game titled ‘Fruit Snap‘, which released on 3rd October.
FRUIT SNAP Gameplay and Atmosphere
This online slot game has a very basic theme as we see in most of the slots. The background is simple and dark and no detailed art work. Symbols are classic bells, fruit and diamonds. In general the visuals of this game are very uninteresting and sluggish which is a big disappointment. There could have been a different and interesting colorful background, which could be added very easily.
Fruit Snap online slot features 8 reels, 8 rows and offers cluster pays. This game is different from other Red Tiger Gaming products that offer standard 5×3 reel grids and takes advantage from paylines ,the cluster of five or more vertically or horizontally connected matching symbols will result in wins. All credit goes to the Avalanche feature, the winning symbols will disappear from the reels and gives space for new symbols to appear and, can easily make a new winning cluster. Betting is fixed at 20 coins per spin and the coin denomination can be changed, meaning that spinners can bet from £0.20 to £20 per spin.
Fruit Snap (Red Tiger): Features
Fruit Snap has many exciting features, wins are formed when 5 or more matching symbols appear in clusters either vertically or horizontally. Winning clusters are then removed to allow the above symbols to fall into place while new ones are added to fill the empty tiles. Known as the Winning Clusters feature, this gives you a chance to win repeatedly from a single spin.
Symbol bars are actually individual Symbol Meters. As you’ll be able to tell, each symbol has a corresponding meter positioned above the grid. Now, whenever a winning cluster is formed, the winning symbol will contribute to filling up its corresponding meter. When the meter is full, the game will fire off one of the following two features depending on whether it’s a low-paying symbol or a high-paying symbol (it will only remain active during the current spin/chain-reaction):
Fruit Removal – When a low-paying symbol meter has been filled, the symbol is completely removed from the grid and will no longer appear during the current spin.
Double Win Upgrade – When a premium symbol meter has been filled, the value of the symbol is doubled. This means that instead of the standard 777x reward, a cluster of 30+ lucky pink 7s will give you 1,554x.
A Meter Bonus may also trigger randomly on a non-winning spin. When activated, one or more symbol types will be randomly chosen and added to their respective meters.
Things get considerably more interesting in the Free Spins feature which comes into play when you land 3 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin. Here, the meters will never reset which means that any lower-symbol removed will not come back into play again and upgraded premiums will remain upgraded until the end of the round. Furthermore, you can also retrigger the free spins with 5 extra spins if you land another 3 bonus symbols during the round.
The maximum payout gamers can expect could be more than 3,000 times the bet. In order for this to happen, players will have to land plenty of successive winning clusters and to fill lots of meters at the same time. Double Lucky Sevens will pay the most, offering 1,554 coins for 30 or more in a winning cluster. Fruit Snap’s RTP is 96%.
Pros and Cons
Interesting theme, Rewarding features, Playable across all devices
No Wilds, Not easy to fill the meters, Meters reset after every spin in the base game
Being honest, we are not sure what to think about Fruit Snap. The Red Tiger Gaming title elevates crisp visuals and a fitting soundtrack. We surely like the way it looks. However the features, even though interesting, but still can make you frustrate after a while, mainly because the meters need to be filled in a single spin and because, after one spin in the base game, the meters are reset. We can say that the Free Spins feature is much better, since nothing resets during freebies. As for the maximum payout of more than 3,000, it is definitely worth your attention.
Fruit Snap is a middle of the road kind of slot and one that avoids the extremes. That goes for all aspects of it, from the moderate winning potential and generic theme to the lack of creative effort invested into it. Overall, there’s a lot of work to be done before Red Tiger can become a serious contender in the grid slot category which, for now, is dominated mainly by Play’n GO and Push Gaming. Rather than churning out more fruit themed slots, it would be fun to see Red Tiger putting more focus on becoming better at building some narrative, designing unique characters and give the slots some more personality. Another thing that cannot be ignored is the reduction in RTP which has dropped below the 96% mark in this as well as several other recent Red Tiger releases.
