Get Fruity And Wild With Booongo
Fruity Wild is a new pokie from small developer Booongo. We don’t see new releases from them often so it is quite a surprise to catch this pokie as it goes live. On its service Fruity Wild looks like a plain fruit machine styled game. It is only when you start looking at the well integrated bonus features that you may notice a spark of hope that this game brings some original and fun features to the table.
Fruity Wild is definitely not the best looking pokie out there. The graphics aren’t bad, they just have this photorealistic quality to them that just turns out looking quite creepy and unnatural. Since the reel backgrounds are just plain, with no detail or design work added, it can look very strange and unfortunately quite cheap.
Boongo certainly could have added some more details in this pokie as the market does not need another plain fruit machine style game. Add to that a paltry 3000 jackpot, a maximum wager of 60 and a suspicious lack of a published RTP and you have a recipe for failure.
If there are any redeeming qualities to this pokie it has to be the bonus features. They are certainly not inspired by classic fruit machines, instead they are more styled to modern slot bonus features which is very welcome.
Wild Fruit Bunches
The fruit salad symbol featuring all the reel icons is the wild substitute for Fruity Wild. This is a multi purpose symbol. It appears only on reel 2 and 4 but when it lands in one of the reels it expands to make the entire reel a wild.
If you can land the wild on both reel 2 and 4 you can trigger a respin with both reels remaining wild until the spin is finished, essentially guaranteeing you a win from the spin.
The Fruity Free Games Feature
Keep an eye out for the golden star symbols as these are your free game triggers. A basic three stars on the reels gets you 15 spins, but the real rewards come from the special sticky scatter symbols.
These golden squares with stars in them appear when you land a wild and a scatter on the reels at the same time. This makes the scatter icon sticky increasing the chances of triggering more free spins. These bonus features really help to make Fruity Wild a better pokie, yet it still is not enough to make this game stand out from the crowd.
