Fruit vs Candy is a Microgaming-powered slot with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices including iOS, Android and laptops/PCs, it can be played from 30p to £45 per spin. The game combines 2 themes, has 2 modes and 2 free spins features.

Fruit takes on Candy in this ultimate sweet showdown – it combines 2 popular themes and has superb cartoon style graphics. Symbols on the reels include regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as apples, pineapple, berries and various sweets including gummy bears.

You can play in either Fruit Mode or Candy Mode which you can choose from at any time in the base game. When it comes to features, there’s a Goodie Bag feature which is randomly triggered after any non-winning spin in the base game – it basically gives you a cash prize.

The Sugar Rush Bonus feature is also played after any non-winning spin in the base game, at random. Every high value symbol gives you a cash prize with just 1 scatter appearing triggering the Free Spins feature. Now, the mode you choose will determine the relevant Free Spins feature.

You can also get 3 or more scatter symbols to trigger the Free Spins feature – the Fruit mode will benefit from the Stash feature where low value symbols are snatched off the reels giving you cash prizes. In essence, there are fewer low value symbols which increases your win potential. The free spins continue until no more low value symbols remain on the reels.

The Candy mode gives you the Sweet Reels feature – look out for a full Candy symbol stack landing on a reel as this will sweeten the reel for the remainder of the feature meaning that sweetened reels turn single wilds into stacked wilds (i.e. wild reels!). The feature continues until all 5 reels have been sweetened or you’ve played 50 free spins – if you do play 50 free spins, you will win an additional cash prize.

Fruit vs Candy is quite similar, in terms of gameplay, to Lost Vegas with its 2 modes – the variance is in the middle with maximum wins of over 2,155 times your stake. I found the Fruit Free Spins feature to be more lucrative. It’s a decent game but I prefer similarly themed slots such as NextGen Gaming’s Lolly Land or Thunderkick’s Sunny Scoops.
