Fruit Fiesta Game Characteristics
Fruit Fiesta has a partitioned 5X3 grid, set on a brown wooden frame that is decorated with blue and brown fiesta beads. There are 20 fixed paylines, eight symbols, seven total bets, no free games, switchable seven-round side game, and regularly pays from $0.10 to $50000.00.
Fruit Fiesta has two special symbols and six ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the substitute is a sombrero-wearing human-faced “wild” chili pepper; and the scatter is a dull “sheriff” badge.
Ordinary symbols: a sombrero-wearing human-faced red 7; a guitar-holding human-bodied banana; a cocktail-holding man-bodied pumelo in a brown poncho; a sexy woman-bodied lemon holding rhumba shakers; a revolver-wielding man-bodied orange; and a rifle-wielding man-bodied pear.
Fruit Fiesta coin values: $0.01, $0.05, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.50, and $5.00. Fruit Fiesta cash bets: $0.20 (minimum bet), $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00 (maximum bet).
Betting $100.00 attracts these Fruit Fiesta payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Chili peppers pay $200.00, $2000.00, and $10000.00. “Sheriff” badges pay $1000.00, $4000.00, and $50000.00. 7 pays $100.00, $400.00, and $2500.00. Banana, or pumelo pays $100.00, $200.00, and $1250.00. Lemon, or orange, or pear pays $50.00, $100.00, and $600.00.
The default side game allows players to guess which one of the two pinata donkeys has a slot symbol inside—the selected pinata donkey is smashed, there revealing a win-nullifying cactus or a win-doubling symbol. Alternative side game: ticking the “cards gambling only” icon lets players guess whether the upcoming color of a face down playing card is black or red—the gambled amount is nullified or doubled according to the result.
The official game information states that the maximum payout is X730, which (730X100) is $73000.00. However, fifteen-of-a-kind chili peppers all over the grid pay a $200000.00 non-progressive jackpot.
The Fruit Fiesta software is good. Notable features: big screen; ultra lite and high quality modes; selectable low, average, and high volatility levels; supports diverse platforms and operating systems; slow, moderate or fast gameplay; available in 18 languages; and the win or loss limits of its 5-1000 autospins can be capped at between $1.00 and $1000.00 in mobile devices and between $0.01 and $1000000.00 in desktops.
Ambient background: mariachi music. Special effects: cartoon sounds, chinking, sigh, sarcastic laugh, gunshots, and giggling. The otherwise barren landscape in the background is dotted with saguaro cacti. The animated 3D graphics include sand storm, dolly zoom, flying debris, and disintegrating pinata donkeys.
