Fruit Party 2 Released, but Is It Even Juicier Than the Original Slot?
Mr Green casino and plenty of our other recommended casinos have the new Pragmatic Play slot Fruit Party 2 live and playable at their casinos.
It hasn’t actually been too long since the original Fruit Party slot was released, so we were initially surprised that the sequel to what proved to be a top-rated slot with players has arrived so quickly, or maybe not so much given its popularity!
In Fruit Party 2, you still have the same colourful fruit themed 7×7 grid slot, there have been some minor graphical updates to the design, background and animations, but overall you have a very familiar-looking slot.
Under the hood, there have been quite a few changes to the maths, so in this release, you can expect bigger wild multipliers in the base game and the bonus round, with this wild multiplier feature able to reach a huge 729x multiplier in the free spins round.
Whilst this is definitely enough to grab most players attention, it is worth noting that there is a win cap of 5000x stake on this machine. Whilst we aren’t complaining about such a value, 5000x is plenty!
It does seem somewhat counterproductive to add in such huge multipliers value or the potential of this occurring and having a win cap that will pretty much instantly trigger if this value is ever reached!
Fruit Party 2 – Base Gameplay
The Fruit Party 2 slot uses a grid-based layout and cluster pays payline format, with 7 reels and 7 rows making up this grid.
Winning combinations are formed by landing clusters of 5 or more matching symbols anywhere on the reels. The more symbols in this cluster, the bigger the wins.
When wins occur, these symbols are removed from the reels allowing new symbols to cascade in from the top of the slot. There is also a chance of special Wild Multipliers appearing in the space created by these wins!
Random Wild Multiplier Feature
In Fruit Party 2, the Multiplier Wilds symbols (random wild multiplier) in the base game start with a 2x multiplier attached to them. On subsequent wins, if it re-appears, this wild can double in value each time for a successive tumble win, increasing its value to 4x and then 8x, 16x, 32x, 64x, 128x and finally the maximum 256x multiplier in the base game.
If Multiple wilds are involved in these winning combinations, the multiplier values are added together, giving a nice boost to your overall winning cluster pay.
As with the original slot, the logic to whether these wilds symbols remain on the screen or vanish is all done RNG wise behind the scenes, which is not only confusing whilst trying to work this mechanic but frustrating too. It was an issue we didn’t like in the original slot, and it’s back again here!
If you are scratching your head playing this slot trying to work out why the wild re-appear sometimes or doesn’t, then you are not alone. We had to double-check the game rules to find that it’s just a chance to occur.
