Yggdrasil Gaming initially launched Fruitoids on May 22, 2014 as a flash game. However, after redeveloping and converting it into an html5 game, the developer then released a newer version on March 15, 2018. An alien fruits-themed and science fiction (space faring) game, Fruitoids’ game play is similar to Yggdrasil’s January 2016 game named Winterberries. Alien Fruits from mFortune, Fruit Cocktail from Igrosoft, Fruit Zen from BetSoft, and Berry Burst from NetEnt are examples of Fruitoids’ rival games.
Although the then Apple Incorporation’s rainbow-like apple logo partly inspired it, the name “Fruitoids” makes reference to the alien fruit symbolism, just like how Yggdrasil’s November 2017 game Reptoids refers to its featured alien reptiles. Fruitoids players match three, four, or five win symbols.
Fruitoids Game Characteristics
Fruitoids’ volatility rating is 43% and most of its features resemble those of Winterberries, ranging from its 5X3 grid to seven symbols to 25 fixed pay lines (left to right). The alien symbols in Frutoids are: a segmented violet fruit with blue petals; a pair of golden fruits with green petals; a multicolored fruit with red pods, blue petals and purple sepals; a pink fruit; a purple and yellow fruit; a brown and cyan fruit; and a blue and orange fruit.
The starting page shows a freeze and re-spin feature, and says that a X5 column multiplier can be a gateway to winning as much as 62500 coins in a game round–the auto spin mode lets the players automate between ten and 1000 rounds. Fruitoids players have a choice of 21 coin values namely: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.06, $0.07, $0.08, $0.09, $0.10, $0.16, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $0.70, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, and $6.00.
Fruitoids’ lowest bet is $0.25, while its maximum bet is $150.00. Its other total bets are: $0.50, $0.75, $1.00, $1.25, $1.50, $1.75, $2.00, $2.25, $2.50, $4.00, $5.00, $7.50, $12.50, $17.50, $25.00, $50.00, $75.00, $100.00, and $125.00.
These are the Fruitoids payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations, respectively. The segmented violet and blue alien fruit pays X20, X100, and X500; the pair of golden and green aluen fruits has X10, X20, and X100; the red, blue and purple alien fruit offers X8, X15, and X50; the pink alien fruit pays X6, X10, and X30; the purple and yellow alien fruit gives X4, X10, and X30; the brown and cyan alien fruit pays X3, X8, and X20; and the blue and orange alien fruit offers X3, X8, and X20.
Fruitoids has other offers, including a re-spin(s) that is triggered by more than three winning combinations. As showed on the grid’s top margin, these are the multipliers associated with filling the columns (they are counted from left to right): filling the first two columns triggers X2 multiplier; filling three columns awards a X3 multiplier; filling four columns offers a X4 multiplier; and filling the entire grid awards X5 multiplier. Fruitoids has a $125,000 non-progressive jackpot.
Fruitoids has good software that enables a simple yet funful game play; moreover, it can be customized to use 20 different languages, and supports different browsers and platforms. The ambience sounds are interesting, including the howling wind and Polka sound effects. The graphics are neo-futuristic.
