Fruit Fiesta from Microgaming: Slot Review - a great tasting, old-school theme

Fruit Fiesta by Microgaming is a jackpot slot game, which draws on a classic theme and combines it with a great payout system - namely, a progressive jackpot, which climbs into the thousands. Read this GamingRevolution review to learn more about the fruit machine.

If you thought that Fruit Fiesta was merely a classic slot machine, you were mistaken. This Microgaming slot incorporates an ingenious jackpot. If I have managed to intrigue you, make use of the easy-to-use game interface, place your bet and hit that spin button.

Special Features

The aforementioned jackpot in Fruit Fiesta is progressive. This jackpot gets bigger with each and every wager and is probably the reason why Fruit Fiesta is so popular. To hit the progressive jackpot combination players need to receive three Fruit Fiesta symbols on payline three in the three-reel Fruit Fiesta version or on payline fifteen in the five-reel version.

Surprised to hear this? Indeed; aside from the fantastic jackpot bonus, the ability to play either the three-reel version or the five-reel version is a great bonus. While some players may enjoy the classic format, which is limited to three reels, some players may embrace the ‘frutier’ version of the five-reel game. I call it fruitier on purpose, as the five-reel version comes with some added symbols; namely, the apple and the lemon. It doesn’t get more complicated though with the added symbols, only more exciting!

Theme and Graphics

Imagine the kind of design that would fit a game called Fruit Fiesta. Chances are that you are spot on. Fruit Fiesta by renowned software provider Microgaming draws on classic fruit machine design. It’s green, it’s colourful, and it’s also pretty fruity. Oranges, lemons, melons and other classic casino symbols, including the bell and the bar, all form part of this online slot machine. A payout button is handily displayed at the bottom right and the current jackpot amount keeps ticking away in bright red. Yes, you heard right, a jackpot!

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Unlike a typical Auto Play option, this game provides an Expert mode, which in essence is the same. Only one coin denomination is available. The betting range can be amended, though. It is important to consider that unless you bet the maximum, you are not in with a chance on the jackpot. Imagine that, hitting the jackpot combination, but realising that you didn’t bet max. For that reason, I would always recommend going for the max, unless you have previously checked the jackpot amount and it’s so low that you rather not risk the few extra bob. Mind you, with wilds available in the game, even if a player does not hit the jackpot, he can make some good wins.

Our Verdict on Fruit Fiesta

Fruit Fiesta is a pretty funky slot game, which provides plenty of excitement, thanks to the jackpot which reaches thousands in prize money. The graphics in the game are super sharp, which allows for prolonged game play without a player’s eyes tiring out. While the game is classic in design, the technology used to make Fruit Fiesta run so smoothly is state-of-the-art. A great combination.
