A Caribbean beachside paradise is the setting for Froots, a 5 reel, 720 ways to win slot powered by Pariplay. This tropical adventure comes with sticky wild re-spins, expanding wilds and a bonus feature that awards up to 60 free spins with multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 10x. Play from between 50p and £50 per spin.
A sandy beach, turquoise sea and pale blue sky form the backdrop to the reels here. Joining the lower value A to 10 values are, appropriately enough, a selection of fruit – you’ll see kiwi fruits, peaches, pink dragons, coconuts and pineapples. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the pineapple and you’ll win 50, 300 or 600 coins.
The toucan is the wild – it can land anywhere on the reels and replaces everything bar the scatter. If the wild forms part of a winning line, you’ll be awarded a re-spin with the wild locked in place. Better still is if you manage to land a wild on the bottom position on reels 2 or 4 – the wild will then expand and fill the whole of that reel or reels.
Froots also comes with a Free Games feature – it’s triggered by landing 3 or more of the neon-style free spins symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. Land 3 free spins symbols and you’ll get 10 free spins with all payouts doubled. Find 4 free spins and it’s 20 free spins with a 5x multiplier.
Land a full 5 free spins and you’ll get 30 free spins with all payouts boosted by a 10x multiplier. The free spins play out in a new night time scene where the fruit symbols become cocktails. Look out for the scatter during the feature as you can retrigger more free spins with a potential 60 free spins with a 10x multiplier on offer!
The design in Froots is simply done and has a cartoon feel – the laid-back visuals match the theme tough, as does the soca-style backing track. The 720 ways to win game engine delivers plenty of action. We found the wild re-spins quite hard to come by though. Likewise, the free spins. And when we did hit the free spins it was a decidedly mixed bag in terms of payouts.
We didn’t find Froots to be the tastiest of slots. For some simple, relaxed action though, it does the job – I do recommend you try ELK Studios’ Sam on the Beach which is also set in the Caribbean.
