It might sound like something uttered by Kenneth Williams in a Carry On film but Very Fruity is in fact a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Barcrest. The highlight here is the Sun Bonus feature which awards extra cash prizes as well as up to 80 free spins. Stakes range from between 20p and £500 per spin.
Games from Barcrest are often low frills affairs as far as design is concerned and that’s certainly true of Very Fruity. The visuals here are pretty basic and just what you’d expect to find on an old school one armed bandit.
In order of value, you’ll see lemons and cherries which pay up to 50 coins per payline. Next come the oranges and plums that award 100 coins if you land 5 in combination followed by the grapes and melons which pay up to 200 coins. The most rewarding symbol is the red 7 which offers 15, 100 or 500 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a line. Helping to create those winners is the diamond which is the wild – it can land on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.
The other symbol to look out for is the bonus – land 5 of these on the same spin and you’ll activate the Sun Bonus feature. These scatters come with a value attached. These are added together and then paid out. You’ll then go on to play your 5 free spins.
The cherries can trigger the Big Cherry Bonus feature during the free spins. A bonus that’s equal to the Sun Bonus that triggered the round is awarded whenever they hit. You can land more free spins here too, up to 80 in total. .
As long as all you’re expecting is a simple fruit machine, you won’t find too much wrong here. If you have any hopes for classy design or a range of extras then Very Fruity will likely be something of a disappointment.
Very Fruity is solid enough but lacks flair, either in the way it looks or plays. Even if you’re after a simple fruit machine we think you’ll find plenty of better alternatives elsewhere.
