30 Spicy Fruits from EGT: Slot Review - a slot with some extra spice!
Spicy food is extremely popular all over the world as people like to put their taste buds to the limits by eating food that is as hot as possible. Do you like your food with a bit of extra kick? Like to order it ‘extra hot’ and pile on loads of chilli hot sauce? If you do then this slot release from Bulgarian software developer EGT was made with you in mind, the only difference here is that it is not food that is going to be spicy but a selection of fruit instead!
30 Spicy Fruits has 5 reels, 30 paylines, and comes with features such as Free Spins, Stacked Wilds, 4 Progressive Jackpots, and a Gamble Mode.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this symbol is illustrated by a red hot chilli pepper. Like most Wild symbols, it substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol which is depicted by a green cash bag with a '$' symbol.. Keep a close eye on the Wild symbol as it is the highest paying symbol in the game, as if you manage to land 5 of these symbols then you’ll be treated to the top maximum payout of 1,000X your wager! That is not all as the Wild symbol also appears stacked on the reels which should really help to increase your chances of a landing big win.
30 Spicy Fruits features the obligatory Free Spins game. To activate this feature, you will need to land 7 or more Scatter symbols on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels. Once triggered, you’ll be taken to an alternate set of reels and given 7 to 30 Free Spins, depending on how many Scatter symbols you land to activate it. For instance, 7 Scatter symbols will give you 7 Free Spins but if you land 9 of these symbols then you’ll receive a fine set of 30 Free Spins.
The game also features an optional Gamble game. This is triggered whenever you land a win on the reels and it involves guessing the colours of red or black of some cards. If you guess the colour of a card correctly then your win is doubled. It is possible to gamble for up to 5 times. The Gamble game is quite risky to play and just know that if you guess the colour of a card incorrectly then you will lose all of your current winnings and be taken back to the main game.
The last feature to highlight is the 4 progressive jackpots which are nicely displayed at the top of the reels. These jackpots can be won at any time on any spin. When a jackpot game is triggered, you will be taken to a new screen where you have to pick 3 cards from 12 cards that appear face-down. If all 3 cards match the same suit of one of the progressive jackpots then you will win the corresponding jackpot total.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are bright and colourful and nicely rendered on screen. The backdrop of the slot is a flaming hot design full of red and orange colours. It really helps to spice things up as you play the game! Symbols are a nice variety of fruit such as Oranges, Lemons, Plums, Cherries, Red Sevens, Liberty Bells, and Bar icons. The animations are excellent as symbols dart up and down the reels in furious fashion and you’ll notice that each winning symbol is covered in a neat flame effect each time you land a win on the reels.
There is not that much music to speak of when playing this game but you will hear some nice jingles and light techno sounds whenever you form a winning combination. It complements the theme of the game rather well.

Our Verdict on 30 Spicy Fruits
EGT produced this highly entertaining slot and it is really easy to play and provides countless hours of entertainment thanks to its nice set of features. I was able to trigger the Free Spins game on more than one occasion while playing and the only downside to this feature is that you cannot retrigger additional Free Spins. I found this game to be of Medium to High variance so it might take you a couple of dry spins before you finally land a decent enough payout but it is definitely worth the wait considering you can land a maximum payout of 1,000X as well as bag one of the 4 different jackpots. All in all, 30 Spicy Fruits is a fresh take on the fruit machine genre with a touch of spice thrown in for good measure!
Land a very hot win in 30 Spicy Fruits!
