Laser Fruit Introduction
Laser Fruit is a pokies game with five reels and three rows in the base game, but with the help of friendly lasers, the number of ways to win can expand from an already generous 243 to more than most players could possibly imagine. Despite the unusual design, lots of familiar favourites will be found on screen, such as lemons, grapes and cherries.
However, all of these traditional icons have been re-invigorated with Laser Fruit’s cutting-edge design. When you start to play, the game has the feel of being in a nightclub or a cocktail bar, with its dark, velvety background and glowing symbols. The aim of the game is to line up matching symbols on the reels to unlock great prizes and the game’s bonus features.
When you do line up some matching symbols, they will pulse and change colour in a way that is very visually exciting. Wins will be awarded when three matching icons land on reels that are adjacent to each other, where the first matching symbol is in the reel furthest to the left. A fast game can be a good game, and to speed things up on a laptop, simply hold down the spacebar to see the fruit really whizzing by.
The most lucrative symbol to look out for in this Red Tiger title is the 7, followed closely by the bell and the Triple BAR. If you manage to land 10 of the 7 symbols in a winning combination, then you will receive a 25x payout on your total wager.
The watermelon pays out less, with a 14x payout on your total wager if you manage to land 10 of these juicy fruits, but it is a gorgeous symbol, in stylised green and pink that will always be welcome on the reels, as it is the highest paying fruit icon. The bell pays out a generous 20x the total wager for 10 icons lined up, and the Triple BAR will provide a payout of 18x your total bet, should you be lucky enough to snaffle 10 of these in the right places on the reels.
Some readers may be wondering how you can line up 10 of anything on a five reel game. This is the true magic of Laser Fruit. Stunning blue neon lasers can pour their energy onto the screen and extend the reels. When the blue lasers are on your side, they can make the reels bigger, by expanding by a block upwards, or to the right of the screen. It is a testament to the intricate and imaginative design of Laser Fruit to see the whole game rearrange itself and grow when the lucky lasers strike. Each time the reels expand, the ways of winning increase by thousands, with lots more chances to collect great, tangy rewards.
Laser Fruit also offers players a delectable Free Spins feature. There is a yellow and bright blue Free Spins icon on the reels, and a player needs to land three of them to activate the bonus round. Blue and yellow are really the signature colours of this round. If you land two Free Spins symbols on reels to the left of the screen, the other reels will head into turbo mode, backed with flashing blue light to add some visual drama.
The whole screen flashes when a Free Spins symbol appears, and quite right too - this is a whopper of a bonus feature. When you have landed those three important Free Spins symbols, the words Free Spins will appear in large letters in the middle of the screen. Then they will be replaced with a huge carousel or numbers, which then spin to let you know just how many free spins you are being awarded.
If the fruit is with you, you could be given up to 50 juicy free spins. To make the bonus round even more exciting and lucrative, if the blue lasers zap the reels and make them expand, this expansion is locked in for the rest of the free spins, giving you even more chances to win.
More Free Spins symbols can appear on the reels - accompanied by flashing and dramatic animation - and if you are fortunate enough to land three of them, then this will trigger another spin of the carousel and you will be awarded more Free Spins to add to the ones you already have. If you keep winning Free Spins, you could be there accumulating spins and prizes for hours.
As the reels expand, there is a tally at the left of how many ways there are to win, and this keeps going up into the thousands. When you score a big win, the words BIG WIN will appear in large letters in the middle of the screen and gold coins will spray around. This may happen several times during a Free Spins bonus, so you will definitely be in a festive mood during a Laser Fruit Free Spins round.
When you look at the screen for Laser Fruit, the most important buttons are ranged along the bottom, with Spin at the right hand side, and the Total Stake at the left. Just click on Total Stake to change your wager.
