Fruit Cake is a sugary-themed 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Big Time Gaming. This recipe cooks up double wild wins, line payouts of up to 10,000 times your line bet as well as a bonus feature that awards 15 free spins. Play from between 20p and £200 per spin.

Dripping in icing sugar, the symbols on the reels all land in cupcakes. Joining the lower value playing cards from A to 9 are a selection of classic fruit machine symbols – look out for cherries, lemons, grapes and melons as well as a triple bar. Both the melons and bars award 750 times your line bet if you land 5 on a payline.

The chef is the game’s wild – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them in a line and you can look forward to a payout of 10, 200, 2,000 or even 10,000 coins. If the wild forms part of a winning combination with any of the standard symbols, that payout will receive a 2x multiplier and be doubled.

The other symbol is the cake which is scatter – payouts of 2, 5, 20 or 100 times your total stake are on offer if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels. 3 or more will also trigger the Free Spins feature where you’ll be awarded 15 free spins.

If the cakes land again during the feature, you can re-trigger more free spins in chunks of 15 at a time. A maximum of 180 free spins can be had here. The payouts for the standard symbols also increase substantially during the feature – even the lower value playing cards can pay 300x. Instead of 750x, the melons and bars pay up to 2,250x.

As well as meaning a tasty dessert, the phrase fruit cake also means a person who’s a bit mad – that double theme is certainly evident in the design of Fruit Cake which has a zany feel. It’s not the most visually flamboyant slot in the Big Time Gaming catalogue but does the job perfectly adequately. The backing track has a madcap intensity.

The likeliest route to cooking up a tasty dish of coins comes via the free spins round. Trigger those free spins and hit some double wild wins and the bigger coin prizes can quickly build. The Great British Bake Off it ain’t! If you’re looking for some cartoon, kitchen capers then Fruit Cake offers just that. The game is identical to Big Time Gaming’s Gold which has a better theme and soundtrack.
