Fruitful Siesta is a classy looking fruit machine re-boot from Playson. It’s a 5 reel, 10 payline slot that comes with a special Flip feature where all symbols that pay the same transform into the same matching symbol and a re-spin is awarded. The more re-spins, the more higher value stacks in play during the re-spins. Play, on all devices, from between 20p and £30 per spin.
The design in Fruitful Siesta is very nicely done – a sleepy city skyline forms the backdrop to the reels. Symbols include single, double and treble stars which pay 0.5, 1.5 or 7.5 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 in a line. Next come the lemons, oranges and berries which pay 1, 2.5 or 12.5 times your stake. The cherries and melons follow, awarding 1.5, 4 or 20 times your bet. By far the best payers are the bell and lucky 7 which offer 5, 20 or 200 times your stake if you land a 3, 4 or 5 in a row combo.
The game’s main feature is triggered by landing a wild symbol on the middle reel – this activates the Flip feature. All of the star symbols transform into the same matching silver coin symbol. The lemon, orange and berries morph into the gold coins. The cherries and lemons become the gold bar and the bell and 7 become a diamond. The prize amounts are the same as in normal play. It’s just that much easier to land a big winning combination.
After the new payout has been made, you’ll be awarded a re-spin. If you land another wild on the re-spin, the process is repeated with more stacked higher value symbols. There are 3 levels in all if you manage to land 3 wilds with the biggest potential rewards on offer from the final re-spin.
The Flip re-spin may sound a little complex but it’s in fact very simple – expect to land it often too. There may not be any traditional feature rounds on offer here but the Flip is a very tidy innovation that delivers a steady stream of action.
We’re not really sure what this game has to do with siestas (although there’s a hint of Spain about the soundtrack). It doesn’t really matter though. With the Flip re-spins you won’t be sleeping through the well designed and entertaining Fruitful Siesta. I do prefer other Playson slots though with Treasures of Tombs Hidden Gold recommended.
