Exotic Fruit (June 2017) is a video slot from Booming Games. It is partly based on chibi characters—the lovely and adorable anime that is synonymous with Japanese film content—and partly based on fruits. Exotic Fruit is the basis of Exotic Fruit Deluxe (December 2017), also from Booming Games whose other fruit-themed games include Wild Cherries (November 2016), Crazy Bananas (March 2019), and Cherry Bomb. Rivals include Super Hot Fruits from Inspired Gaming, 5 Dazzling Hot by EGT, and Fruit Stars by Rabcat.
The featured fruits are literally foreign, thereby inspiring the name “Exotic Fruit”. All symbols are marked as 3X, 4X, and 5X, which are the possible combinations that players should have to win.
Exotic Fruit Game Characteristics
Exotic Fruit has: a 5X3 grid, 15 adjustable pay lines, and nine symbols. The three special symbols are: a substituting and “WILD” golden-haired and blue-eyed chibi girl beside one and a half passion fruits; two mystery wild multipliers comprising of X5 and X10 with a splashy pink background; and a free spins-offering silver-haired and purple-eyed chibi girl holding a half-cut pitaya fruit (Scatter).
The six Exotic Fruit ordinary symbols: a black-haired chibi girl beside a pineapple; a half-cut coconut; a yellow half-cut carambola (star fruit); a piece of pomegranate (with red seeds); and a half-peeled white-and-red rambutan fruit.
Set via the green-and-golden settings cog at the bottom left, the Exotic Fruit “Ber per Line” options are: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, and $10.00. The minimum bet is $0.01. Each pay line has its own unique bet range. For example, all 15 pay lines give these bet size options: 0.15, $0.30, $0.45, $0.75, $1.50, $3.00, $4.50, $7.50, $15.00, $30.00, $45.00, $75.00, and $150.00 (maximum bet).
Assuming the player bets the $150.00 maximum bet, the following are the Exotic Fruit payouts for three, four, and five matching symbols. The silver-haired “Scatter” chibi girl pays $50.00, $100.00, and $200.00. The black-haired chibi girl pays $250.00, $1000.00, and $15000.00. The half-cut coconut pays $100.00, $500.00, and $5000.00. The star fruit offers $50.00, $250.00, and $1500.00. The piece of pomegranate pays $40.00, $150.00, and $500.00. The rambutan fruit pays $30.00, $100.00, and $250.00.
More than three silver-haired chibi girls not only offer ten free spins but also activate the “Gamble” feature. However, players cannot gamble once the free games mode has started. This is different from other Booming Games’ video slots whose “Gamble” features are permanently active. To counter this, Exotic Fruit has a permanently active “2-Way Pay” feature instead—as such, the pay lines function in a right-to-left and left-to-right manner.
The highest regular winning in Exotic Fruit is $15000.00. When the two mystery Wild multipliers are factored in, it means that there are two possible non-progressive jackpots. If the X5 Wild multiplier is applied, there is a $75000.00 minor jackpot; if the X10 Wild multiplier is applied, then the major jackpot is $150000.00.
The Exotic Fruit software is good and the sounds are magical. Graphically, it has a fairyland setting, particularly the green rolling plains in the background, the twining vines on the paytable, the chibi anime symbolism, and the curling wisps of sky-blue smoke.
