Opal Fruits Slot Review – Big Time Gaming
After releasing Holy Diver, Who Want’s To Be An Millionaire and The Final Countdown. We have seen more releases from Big Time Gaming than ever before. But this does not mean each game had a good response with the casino community. Holy Diver had a bad response due to people grinding the progressive feature to level 3 and barely getting a 20x return in most cases. The Final Countdown had been hyped since 2018 with talks of it being Danger High Voltage 2. The slot is hardly a sequel but had a somewhat positive response with the casino community. Then Who Want’s To Be A Millionaire had mixed feedback due to the gamble mechanic and percentages for each letter. Let’s find out more in our Opal Fruits slot review.
Opal Fruits Slot Review Information
But now they have teased the next title for 2019, we currently have no release date for this launch but it should be soon. The title is ‘Opal Fruits’ this slot has 1980s retro visuals and a funky soundtrack. The Big Time Gaming CEO Nik Robinson has said: “Opal Fruits Is All About High Turnover With Low Stakes‘. The visuals are stunning yet simple with galaxy background, fruit symbols and the standard symbols on reels. The sound effects remind me of an old school game and the soundtrack also reflects this.
This slot has a setup of 6 reels by 3+ rows due to Megaways being implemented into this slot. There are also extra reels above and below reels 2,3 and 4. These reels have 4 symbols and are useful for symbol combinations, these reels spin the same as the normal main game. This feature is seen in most Megaways slots now. The set RTP is 96.75%, along with bets starting at £0.10 – £20. This game has ‘Reactions‘ so when symbols are part of a win, they explode and new symbols fall into their place. Another common feature seen in Megaways slots.
Opal Fruits Slot Review Symbols & Paytable
This slot has 12 symbols in total, this includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by 9,10, J, Q, K and A.These symbols have the standard Big Time Gaming font seen in all their previous releases. There are also 4 premium symbols represented by fruits, Pears, blueberries, watermelons and grapes. Grapes is the highest paying symbol rewarding 50x for 6 across all reels. The premium is purple just like Extra Chilli and Bonanza which seems to be common now from the provider. There are also rainbow wilds which appear as regular wilds or with multipliers of 3x. These multipliers are combined and multiplied by each other and add together on the same column to create some insane wins. These x3 wilds only appear in the base game.
The scatters are split into 4 different symbols with letters spelling ‘FREE‘, this is identical to the bonanza scatters spelling ‘GOLD’. But instead of the possibility +4 free spins landing when, you trigger the bonus feature multipliers land instead of extra spins. These multipliers start the win multiplier higher up than the usual trigger. You can land x5 then every additional increase the win multiplier by 10x.
Opal Fruits Slot Review Features
To trigger the bonus feature you need to land the 4 golden scatters to spell ‘FREE’, you can land starting multipliers for the free spins feature when triggered. When you get the multiplier to 10x during these spins you are awarded +5 extra free spins. But if you trigger this bonus with the starting multiplier of 10x, you are automatically given the +5 free spins for the feature.
The normal trigger will award you 10 free spins with a starting multiplier of 1x. Each symbol win combination will increase the win multiplier by 1x. Very common in most Big Time Gaming releases. With both extra reels in play, this bonus feature is very volatile and unique. Wilds do appear in these free spins but do not have the x3 multipliers included, instead just regular wilds in play due to the increasing win multiplier already being in play.
Overall, I must say I am impressed by this Big Time Gaming release. Both the base game and free spins feature are unique and equally volatile. You have the combining x3 wilds in play for the base game, then the increasing multiplier in the free spins. The addition of two extra reels is fantastic and really improves the hit rate. I really want to try this slot out for myself after learning of the statistics and features incorporated in this game. I hope the game plays well when released and hope the casino community enjoys it. Be on the lookout for more videos and images from the game, as well as check out our stream on Twitch.TV.
