This reviewer isn’t a great cook and yet to burn water but there’s been a few times when smoke has wandered out of the microwave. So how do we get fruits on fire? Well these are flambéed fruits served on a hot plate in an Italian restaurant and very tasty they look. Even hotter could be the wins that you might get if the winning combinations flow in your direction in this entertaining culinary slot game from Novomatic.
We’re in a posh restaurant, one of those that finds it so entertaining to set fire to food items in front of you. Flambéed fruits are the speciality of the chef but can this game serve you up some big wins, here’s hoping luck is on your side. There’s just three reels and it differs from other games as there’s no specific win line. Instead wins are paid for a certain number of matching symbols anywhere on the reels. A bit different but you’ll be ok once you get used to it, perhaps play for free as practice before the real thing.
You need to set your stake before playing with real money. The minimum stake is 0.10 if playing with a low-limit and the most you can play is 40. Just play at a level that won’t cause any financial problems. Symbols in this slot remind me of the many fruit machines I used to play in my youth. There’s the usual suspects of cherries, oranges, lemons, watermelons, and plums. We also get the bar sign and a red seven that can certainly put a smile on your face.
That’s definitely the case with the red seven because if nine of those symbols fill all the spaces on the reels then it’s time to celebrate. Why? Well it’s because you will have just won the 1000x jackpot. This game can be played on your PC but also on Android and other mobile devices. It’s easy to set your stake and there’s also an autoplay feature. This allows you to get the reels spinning in your absence if you need a bit of a break from the screen.
That chef may be burning all the fruit but he can win you some coins. Randomly he can appear on the middle reel and boost your win which is a bonus. If appearing on the second reel together with three matching symbols you win some cash and not just that but a total of seven free spins. While those are taking place the chef and those winning symbols stay just where they are. That increases your chances of getting more winning combinations.
There are more chances of getting higher wins via the gamble feature. This appears after the player gets a winning combination and doesn’t have to be played if you don’t want to. If you do opt to go for it, the gamble feature is the usual game of trying to predict the colour of the next playing card, nothing new here. Get the guess correct and your win is doubled, however one wrong choice loses you all your win so be wary of playing this too many times and losing the coins you win.
Having a good look through the paytable can help the punter understand more about this slot and you can do that without having to spend anything. It has details of how much each of the winning combinations will see you cash-out. In addition to that it has details of the special bonus game and how to get wins. Also have some free Fruits on Fire slot games to see just how everything works including that magical chef.
There are several other three-reel games that have similar gameplay to ‘Fruits on Fire.’ For example, there’s the IGT slot ‘Double Diamond’ which as you might guess focuses on diamonds rather than fruit but it does have a red 7 and bar symbols. This three-reel game has just the one pay-line. There’s also the Microgaming slot ‘Captain Cash’ which also has just the three reels. It does have three reels but also has five pay-lines and a wild symbol but also has an autoplay feature in expert mode.
The Fruits on Fire video slot is a rather basic game on first look but there are a few surprises along the way. That makes it a step above most three-reel retro style games a lot of slot designers produce. The theme isn’t anything unique as Novomatic do enjoy seeing fruit in flames. The lack of pay-lines takes a bit of getting used to but once that’s under your belt, this is fine with the chef feature a good way to get big wins and some free spins. Perhaps ideal for those new to slot games but worth a play.
