Special Features

The first feature I noticed when I loaded this game was that you could pick between two different play modes: Fruit or Candy. Both modes contain all of the base game features and will display Fruit or Candy symbols depending on which mode you select Both modes also contain different Free Spins features. You can easily switch between modes in the main game by pressing the “Play Candy” or “Play Fruit” buttons.

The Fruit vs Candy logo is the Wild symbol and this substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol. If you are unlucky to form a non-winning spin then the Goodie Bag feature can randomly activate. It can award up to a 20X multiplier value on your total bet.

The Scatter symbol is depicted by a rather colourful Scatter logo and if you land 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels then you will trigger the Free Spins feature. In Fruit mode, this feature is called Cash Stash and involves removing the A, K, Q, J, 10 symbols from the Free Spins reels as each symbol that is removed will add cash to your total. This feature will continue until there are none of these symbols left on the reels.

In Candy mode, the Free Spins feature is referred to as Sweet Reel and involves stacked reels where the reels can turn single Wilds into stacked Wilds. Free Spins continue until all the stacks become Wild reels. Up to 50 spins can be played in this feature and if you manage to complete the 50 spins then you will win a nice bonus prize.

The Sugar Rush feature can also trigger on any non-winning spins and it can award up to a 5X multiplier value on your total bet. An interesting addition to this feature is that you only need 1 Scatter symbol in this game in order to trigger the Free Spins feature.

Theme and Graphics

The game is filled with bright colours and it’s a visual feast for the eyes. The game has a nicely-detailed green and purple background, green for Candy and purple for Fruit and it is quite innovative to be able to switch between the two of them. It is a fun way of customising the appearance of the slot.
The symbols are rich in detail and full of colour. They run smoothly along the reels and flash slowly when you land a winning combination.

The music is quite bouncy with lots of soft techno sounds and it is rather catchy as I found myself humming along to it as I played the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 243 paylines, an excellent RTP of 96.15% and a mouth-watering jackpot of 970,000 coins!

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the line bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Fruit vs Candy

Fruit vs Candy is produced by Microgaming and I really enjoyed playing this slot. I liked the fact that you could choose from 2 modes of play as this is rarely seen in slot games these days. It’s highly original and needs to be used a lot more in future slot releases. Fruit vs Candy has a boat load of features and I liked how the Goodie Bag and Sugar Rush features compensated for non-winning spins. Play this game now and decide which tasty treat you are going to side with!
