About the Game

Fruit Smash is the game developed by renowned studio Slotmill. Released on 15.02.2022 it became a hit among slot fans for its thrilling engine and fantastic artwork. This review details all of its main characteristics that along with free demo mode available on our site give a complete idea of experience you’ll be getting.

Fruit Smash is a 6 row slot based on symbol matching with Giant Fruit Feature, Free Spins and Fruit Frenzy Free Spins. Winnings in the Fruit Smash slot are formed when 8+ identical symbols appear on the reels. Symbols that are part of a win explode and make room for new symbols. The Avalanche feature is active as long as new winning combinations of symbols appear.

Fruit Smash Review

Fruit Smash is a slot machine with clusters and an avalanche feature from Slotmill. The slot uses a bright fruit theme and a 6*6 layout. 8 or more matching symbols are required to form a win. Fruit Smash has a lot of different bonus features such as Progressive Win Multiplier, Giant Symbols (2x2, 3x3, or 4x4), Free Spins, and a special Fast Track feature. The RTP of the slot is 96.19%, the volatility is very high. Fruit Smash bets range from 0.1 to 50 euros per spin, and the maximum win you can get can be up to 6,000 times your stake.

Overview

Fruit Smash: Slot Features

As well as the Avalanche feature, other extras of note are Giant Fruit symbols, win multipliers, free spins, Fruit Frenzy Free Spins, Fast Track, and Burst Mode.

Win Multiplier
A win multiplier is used in all phases of the game. Following each Avalanche, it increases by +1. The win multiplier reset between paid spins, yet not between free spins.

Giant Fruit Symbols
On each spin, a 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 sized Giant Fruit Symbol can randomly appear on the reels. Giant Fruit Symbols aren't just big; they can also carry win multipliers of up to x100, which is applied to any win they are part of. If two Giant Fruit Symbols of the same type appear, their values are added together.

Free Spins
Landing 3 scatter symbols in the base game awards 10 free spins. If 3 scatter symbols hit in the bonus game, +5 spins are awarded. As mentioned, the win multiplier does not reset in free spins, and the active win multiplier is added to Giant Fruit Multipliers before being applied to scatter symbol wins.

Fruit Frenzy Free Spins
This feature can randomly be awarded instead of regular free spins when 3 scatter symbols land. During this bonus, Giant Fruit symbols are guaranteed to land on each new free spin.

Fast Track
If the Fast Track menu is present, players can play Fruit Smash in the following three modes:

Giant Fruit – costs 5x the bet for a spin with guaranteed Giant Fruit, RTP is 96.28%.
Free Spins – buy a regular round of free spins for 100x the bet, RTP is 96.45%.
Fruit Frenzy Free Spins – buy a round of Fruit Frenzy Free Spins for 500x the bet, RTP is 96.53%.

Burst Mode

In Burst Mode, players select a stake level and a number of spins which is then played out without the game grid being present. Any wins are simply displayed on the screen if and when they happen.

Conclusion

After glancing back through Slotmill's catalogue, the studio shows encouraging signs of creating steadily better games. Despite the general progression, there is, at times, a slight lack of the major individuality required to really make their games pop from the bunch. This was more pronounced in Fruit Smash, which felt like something Hacksaw Gaming would have produced. We've noticed a similar phenomenon while testing other games they've done, but perhaps the use of such common items as fruit exacerbated this impression.

Familiarity hasn't damaged Fruit Smash's chances of being a fun slot to play, though, it must be said. Scatter paying slots aren't hugely numerous, so they possess an inherent desirability factor, and the use of massive multipliers is always a plus. When adding both of these elements together, Fruit Smash also caused memories of Sweet Bonanza to come bubbling to the surface. It's like Slotmill is going through an adolescence stage and hasn't quite found the conviction or self-confidence to completely follow its inner voice and is looking at the cool kids for cues.

Still, any player after a scatter paying fruit slot with masses of multipliers and a decent max win could do a lot worse than pick Fruit Smash for some grid-based entertainment. There are no major faults we can point at to say otherwise. To push the point home, while Slotmill is good at crafting polished slots, to really make a mark, they might want to dig deeper into their personalities or bravely go where no one's been before. So far, though, the studio is ticking along nicely, and Fruit Smash is a smartly designed scatter paying slot, which might not be a long-term classic, but has everything it needs for short term success.
