Opal Fruits Slot
Opal Fruits? It’s a long time since we enjoyed those chewy sweets after they were rebranded as Starburst in the 1990s. Now Big Time Gaming has created a sweet Opal Fruits Slot treat. Resurrecting the name, with perhaps a cheeky nod to NetEnt’s legendary Starburst slot in the process.
ABOUT OPAL FRUITS SLOT
With its retro nod to a famous confectionary name. It’s fitting that Opal Fruits slot has a retro feel to its style, blended with a spacey theme that’s clearly intended to have a whiff of the aforementioned Starburst about it too. However, this is a Big Time Gaming slot, and so it revels in a mechanism that’s a spin-off off this developer’s famous Megaways games. Following Megaways legends such as Bonanza, Opal Fruits has six vertical reels augmented by a horizontal reel (or reels on this slot) that adds four extra symbols to the middle reels of the main set. Like traditional arcade slots the main reels always stop with three symbols in view – unlike the dynamic approach of Megaways slots – and so Opal Fruits offers a fixed and juicy 5,625 ways to win on every spin!
Opal Fruits also delights as a cascade slot like Bonanza, a feature BTG call Reactions, so any win can trigger delicious chain reaction of extra wins. Adding to the pulling power on the paytable, you’ll also find Multiplier Wilds in action on the base game that can triple any win they assist. Better yet those Multiplier Wilds can act on each other in lovely mathematical ways. If they appear in the same reel their multipliers will add together and if on different reels they’re multiplied, boosting their effect should they build a win from their powers of substitution!
FREE SPINS BONUS
For bonus treats beyond its base game, Opal Fruits goes for the player favourite of free spins, triggered by the arrival of four of more Scatters in view on the base game. The core award is ten free spins with a Win Multiplier starting at x1, but five Scatters will start this bonus’s Win Multiplier at x5 and six Scatters ups that to x10. That Win Multiplier is applied to every initial win following a free spin and increases by one for every subsequent cascade/ reaction that flows from that, without limits to its upper value.
The Scatters (and also note the Multiplier Wilds) aren’t present during free spins, but retriggers are still possible here to extend your free ride. The trick? Achieve a chain reaction of wins that gets the Win Multiplier to a multiple of ten and you’ll add five extra free spins to your tally. That’s different and a neat facet to boosting the considerable opportunities for big wins from this bonus.
Big Time Gaming has shown its usual smarts in developing its own challenger to the evergreen charms of NetEnt’s Starburst. From its crafty, subversive name to its mutation of the Megaways format this slot is both familiar and yet offers its own distinct appeal that should please plenty of Neon Jackpot players. Like its sweetie namesake this is slot entertainment made to make your mouth water!
