Big Time Gaming Opal Fruits Slot ReviewOpal Fruits is powered by Big Time Gaming and has 6 reels and 5,625 ways to win. Playable from 10p to £20 a spin on all devices, this space/fruit themed slot is a refreshing change from their MegaWays engine. Using the new Triple Reaction game engine, you can benefit from 3x multipliers in the base game that can combine up to 1,296x. There’s a Free Spins feature where unlimited free spins and an unlimited multiplier can combine to devastating effect.

Visually, Opal Fruits has a retro/space feel – set in outer space, you’ll see the semi-transparent reels in a 3, 5, 5, 5, 5, 3 formation. You will see 6 reels with 3 rows with 2 rows above reels 2 through 5. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as pears, plums, watermelons and grapes – the latter is the most rewarding with 6 giving you 50 times your stake.

There’s a standard wild symbol which replaces all symbols bar the scatter – these only appear in Extra Reels (above and below the main reel set). There’s also a 3x wild which trebles your outcome when part of a winning combination. If you get more than one, they multiply each other when appearing on different columns – if they appear on the same column, they will be added together. This can result in a multiplier up to 1,296x! These only appear in the base game.

Winning combinations are formed starting from the leftmost reel (reel 1). When you get a winning combination, the Reactions feature comes into play – winning symbols disappear and are replaced with new symbols. This gives you the chance to win again and again from every spin.

The main attraction is the Free Spins feature – this is played when you spell the word F-R-E-E (gold scatters). This will give you 10 free spins. If you trigger the feature with an extra scatter, you’ll start with a 5x multiplier – if you get 2 extra scatters, you’ll begin with a 10x multiplier.

Once in the feature, every reaction increases the multiplier by 1 – there are no limits to how high the multiplier can go. This is known as the Unlimited Win Multiplier feature. Once you reach a multiplier of 10 (i.e. 10x, 20x and so on), you’ll be rewarded with 5 additional free spins.

Opal Fruits is a great slot from Big Time Gaming which is innovative and can provide huge wins of 36,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin. You can win big in the base game with the potential 1,296x multiplier but the likelihood of winning big amounts will come in the Free Spins feature due to the unlimited multiplier.

Opal Fruits blows slots like NetEnt’s Starburst out of the water – it also shows that Big Time Gaming are not relying on their MegaWays slots and will release innovative concepts that offer something unique to players. Overall, a superb, high variance slot that can pay out huge amounts in both the base game and Free Spins feature. I recommend you take a look at their other titles with The Final Countdown my choice.
