Head deep into the jungle and join a cheeky monkey who’ll help you try and walk away with a jackpot or 2 in Fruit Boxes. Powered by iSoftBet, this nicely designed 5 reel, 15 payline slot comes with exploding reels as well as a bonus feature that awards up to 50 free spins. Play from between 15p and £15 per spin.
Set against a deep green rainforest backdrop, the symbols are all contained in wooden fruit boxes which stack on the reels rather than spin. Look out for kiwi fruit, stars, coconuts, mangoes, pineapples and bananas. The latter are the top payers, offering 5,000 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
The Boom is the scatter, offering between 3 and 25 times your total stake if you land between 3 and 5 of them anywhere on the reels. There’s also a wild which replaces everything bar the scatter and bonus as well as awarding payouts of up to 5,000 coins.
Fruit Boxes is played out using the Exploding Symbols feature- every time a winning combination hits, the successful symbols will be blasted away and replaced by the ones directly above. A new payout consideration will be made and it won’t cost you anything. The explosions keep on coming as long as there’s a new winning combo on show.
The other feature is the Fruit Box Bonus feature which is triggered when you land 3 or more Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll be taken to a new screen and presented with a selection of 9 fruit boxes. With the help of the monkey, pick 1 to reveal a number of free spins. Keep on picking until you find the spiders which will end your selections. The total number of accumulated free spins will then play out – with up to 50 on offer.
There’s nothing revolutionary on show in Fruit Boxes but it’s still a very playable slot – the design is excellent, complete with the throbbing jungle soundtrack and the gibbering of our monkey friend. The exploding reels keep the action bobbing along at a good pace.
The bonus round is a good one too, especially if you manage to hit the top end of the free spins available. Getting your 5 a day has rarely been as entertaining as this so get stuck into these Fruit Boxes. If you like the jungle theme, I recommend WMS’ Jungle Wild.
