Fruit Blast Online Slot: Fill Fruit Bar Meters to Win; Collect Stars to Unlock Next Game Level
Fruit Blast online slot by Microgaming furnishes a first of its kind, icon-matching game. The primary goal is to connect three or more identical symbols, horizontally, vertically or both ways. The Cluster of symbols will then qualify as Meter Fillers. Filling up meters entails clicking on the Clustered Symbols, in order to transfer the images. Transferring the elements will then open up spaces into where new Fruit Bars coming from above, lodge.
As new Fruit Bars fall, more Fruit Clusters may form and furnish additional Meter-Filler symbols. It takes seven (7) identical images to fully load a Fruit Meter and achieve a win. However, the Fruit Meter loading-process must carry on continuously and via a single spin. Otherwise, all partially filled meters resets to zero once a new spin launches.
In a succession of clustering, transferring, and fruit-blasting activities, any Fruit Meter may fill-up more than once. In such cases, the number of times a Meter has been filled multiplies the corresponding pay awarded by the winning icon. The board .will display a “No More Move” notice in case the Fruit Blast Board no longer contains qualifying Clustered Symbols.
Fruit Blast Online Slot: Rewards Scheme
Every Colored Bar appearing as reel element represents a Fruit. The Red Bar represents Cherries, the Light Green Bar is for the Lemon, the Purple Bar for the Grapes, the Dark Green Bar for the Watermelon, and lastly, the Orange Bar for the Pineapple. Each of this symbol comes with a Bet Value Multiplier that can be won once the corresponding Fruit Meter is full. The Pineapple Orange Bar bestows the highest reward as it applies a x10 Bet Value Multiplier on every Full-Meter Win.
Now if a Meter filled more than once via a single spin, the Bet Multiplier will increase by the number of times the Meter became full. On the other hand, a spin that results to multiple Fruit Bar wins will first aggregate all factors won, in order to determine the Total Winnings of that fruitful Fruit Blast spin.
