Laser Fruit is Red Tiger’s Gaming futuristic-looking take on the classic fruit machine. The base game action takes place on a standard 5 reel, 243 ways to win machine. Look out for the blue lasers that can blast onto the reels and increase the number of ways to win! There’s also a free spins round where the reels can expand to offer over 60 million ways to win! Play from between 20p and £500 per spin.
There’s a futuristic feel to the design in Laser Fruit as all of the symbols appear neon style. In order of value are cherries, lemons, oranges, grapes, single and double bars and bells. The best standard symbol is the lucky 7. This pays 25 times your stake if you land 10 in combination.
How do you land a 10-symbol winner if the game engine is only 5 reels? Look out for the lasers that can fire onto the reels at random. Depending on where they hit, they can expand the reels by a block both upwards and to the right. If they expand to their maximum, you’ll play on an enormous 10-reel machine with offers a gargantuan 60,466,176 ways to win.
The Free Spins feature is where things can really interesting – it’s triggered in the usual manner by landing 3 or more of the bonus scatter anywhere on the reels on the same spin.
A wheel then spins to determine how many free spins you’ve been awarded. This can be up to 30. If you have a reel expansion during the feature, it locks rather than reverting back to the 5 reel, 243 ways to win machine like the base game.
Each expansion expands the reels still further which offers some very solid winning opportunities, especially if you manage to land a retrigger or 2. We managed to get a 116,000 ways to win machine during 1 set of free spins.
We found Laser Fruit to be a volatile game. We went through lengthy spells where the cashier headed south. Get a big expansion of the reels from the lasers and you can quickly get the coins flowing. Of course, we didn’t see the full 60m ways to win game engine. We did see the massively expanded reels in the bonus round though which is where all of the best winning chances arise.
We enjoyed Laser Fruit. The sound and visuals are well-constructed and the Free Spins feature has the potential to be a cracker. Get the expansions and retriggers going and Laser Fruit can serve up some very tasty action. If you like the look of Laser Fruit, Neon Staxx by NetEnt and Thunderspin Jackpots from NextGen Gaming are worth playing.
