The Game

They just keep coming..! Fruit Feast has a unique feature board, never before seen on a simulator! To enter the feature board you must either get 3 "fruit feast" symbols on the winline, or obtain a three of a kind win. The chances of this occurring can be greatly increased using the random holds and nudges!

Once on the feature board you now have the opportunity to gamble for shots. This is achieved using the three (yes, 3!) twelve position Hi/Lo reels. You can gamble on which ever reel you want, and in doing so will add to either Red, Blue or Green shots! Some of the numbers have bonuses, which could help you climb your way to the virtual Jackpot!

Important: No money can be lost or won on this game, it is purely for entertainment purposes. Any cash awards mentioned are all virtual, not real.


The reel board

The main feature of this game is the 3 reels, each of which has 16 positions - much like a normal fruit machine. To win you need to match 3 symbols. This can be achieved using extra features such as nudges and holds. Throughout the game you will be awarded nudges at random, which allow you to step down the reels for a greater chance of obtaining a 3-of-a-kind win. Once a win is achieved you are entered onto the feature game, which is explained later.

Holds
Nudges (1 to 5)
Hold 3 Times For A Win
Holds After Nudges

When you get a three of a kind win, or 3 fruit feast symbols you are taken onto the feature board. You can then gamble higher and lower (1 to 12) on one of the three dice numbers. When registered, you can view the current percentage payout using the option of the "Game" menu.

Registered users can also view a reel guide, which will indicate to you the exact position of the reels. This can be extremely useful when you have nudges, which can be given randomly throughout the game - with the option of Skill nudges!


The features

Fruit feast Feature Board

The feature board becomes active when you match 3 Fruit Feast Symbols in a row, or when you successfully obtain a 3-of-a-kind win using either holds, nudges or when rolling in of its own accord.

The feature board consists of 3 columns - Red, Green and Blue. You can gamble for more shots by gambling on an of the 3 Hi-Lo reels. If you gamble on the Red Hi-Lo reel you will be awarded with a red shot, gamble on the blue reel and you will be awarded a blue shot and so on..

 

Some of the Hi-Lo numbers have the word "Bonus" overlaid on them. If you correctly guess a gamble and the new number has a "Bonus" then the bonus game will start. Use the stop button to randomly select a bonus game, which will help in your quest for the higher wins.
