Theme, characters and environment
Fruits, smiles, happy sounds and bright colours meet the eye when you play this game. Symbols of happy smiling fruits in blue, orange, red and purple fill the reels and it is super sweet and quite goofy in a lovable way. Winnings are accompanied with a joyful Yahooo!
Theme and characters
Although this is a very straight forward game without any complex 3D animations, there is plenty of action going on thanks to the exciting bonus features. This game has some special symbols mixed up with the happy fruits.
Symbols and soundtrack
It is the simple old school graphics that makes this game what it is. Although there is no jackpot, the special symbols can maximize the winnings up to 500x the initial bet. There are three types of bonus symbols plus a variety of multiplier functions, so there is plenty of fruitful opportunities to look forward to when playing this happy game. The standard symbols are:
- J – A happy green fruit (a pear?)
- Q – A happy purple Q-shaped grape
- 10 – A cheeky orange fruit sticking his tongue out
- K – A blue fella with a friendly smile
- A – The goofy looking strawberry
The special symbols in Happy Fruits can trigger the three different bonus features that increases the winnings significantly. In this game it is the Star that is Wild symbol. It is also the highest paying symbol in Happy Fruits. Keep an eye of for the following:
- The Golden Key which activates the Crazy Streak bonus
- The golden 7 which activates the Super 7’s bonus
- The green and red Pick a Win symbol that activates the Splat Bonus
- The Star is Wild (and it has Wild written on it)
Soundtrack and sound effects
Just like you would expect, the soundtrack offers jolly rhythms and fun sound effects that congratulate your wins, makes you wanna spin some more and makes you feel good. In accordance with the retro style of this game, the sound effects are typical of those sounds that we remember from the physical slot machines. Think magic, fun, happy and celebratory and you have an idea of what the soundtrack is like. Then we also know the ticking sound that a slot game makes when you have a win that you can choose to gamble or collect.
This game has plenty of bonus options with lucrative possibilities. There is the Happy Fruits Crazy Streak Bonus, the Pick a Win Bonus and the not so frequent Super 7s Bonus. To active these features the player needs to get the symbols 7, Splat and the Golden Keys. Happy Fruits also allows players to gamble each win with a simple but fun red or black guessing game, so you can either gamble to double your win or collect it and continue spinning.
Pick a Win Bonus
The Splat Bonus gets triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 of the vivid symbols in red and green on the screen. That is when you get to pick a prize multiplier. Here it is pretty common to get between 5x and 20x times the total bet, but players that are on a roll might just be able to land that big 500x win. Wouldn’t that be nice!
Super 7s Bonus
Not the most common bonus feature, the Super 7’s Bonus game is activated when a player gets three golden 7 symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. Should you be that lucky you get to pick a symbol to reveal your prize. This bonus feature rewards the chosen few with a cash prize up to 500x the total bet. Even if it is more common to get between10x – 20x your bet, we never say no to that sort of prize either.
Happy Fruits Crazy Streak Bonus
Here comes our favourite bonus game, the Happy Fruits Crazy Streak Bonus. This game is often triggered and what you need is between 3 and 5 of the golden keys anywhere across the 20 paylines. When this happens the happy fruits cheer for you as you are moved into a set of 3×1 reels. Here the symbols are different but still on the same theme, and there are multipliers all over the place. This is pretty much a free spins round that rewards the players with instant cash wins. When you press “Spin” the game will automatically unfold as it spins again and again, collecting wins and multipliers, until the crazy murder tomato has shown up on each of the reels and the bonus game comes to an end. Also, this bonus game can provide up to 500x the total bet win and this is usually a very lucrative story that makes the player smile as wide as the fruits. Out of the three bonus games, this is the one that shows up the most.
For every win the player is offered to choose to gamble or collect. In the gamble bonus game you can easily double (or loose) the win by picking red or black. A random card is picked from the deck and if the right colour shows up, you have doubled your win. If not, better luck next time.
Pros and cons of the slot
All in all this is a very happy, fun and lucrative video slot that we can’t get enough of. You can play this game any day and it will bring a smile to your face, and it really is a big plus that the bonus games are so frequent. Whether you are a big fruit fan or not, it is worth giving this game a go.
- Three fantastic bonus features
- Genuine old school graphics
- Bonuses frequently triggered
- Happy and joyful atmosphere
- No progressive jackpot
- Would be fun with a sequel
Fruits are a popular theme amongst the video slots and that has been a fact since the very first slot machines were created. Happy Fruits is a retro game with old school graphics, but if you want to take it to the other extreme with a 3D animated fruit game, we recommend Fruit Warp from Thunderkick. So close, yet so far away. For a more retro feel you could try out Fruit Bingo, Fruit Smoothies, Pub Fruity or Fantastic Fruit.
Where to play
If you want to feel the happy vibes with the Happy Fruit video slot, you can play it at the certified online casinos Slotsup, Casumo, Slotozilla, Energy Casino and Rise Casino. It can be played both for free with the demo version, or with real money if you prefer to cash in on your wins.
