A title like Inspired Gaming’s Fruit Climber slot was always going to attract me as I have quite a few koala mates. How do they climb those trees? I’d just love to scale the dizzy heights and see what the view was like from up there. And the fruit. I mean this game had me salivating more than the Juicy Ninja slot and that’s not an easy task.
Anyway, snacks aside, you can’t do better than a whirl on this game to unleash expanding reels, stacked icons and mystery symbols. Now that’s a great way to get your five a day!
Look and Feel
This slot is a bright and bold affair and the look is firmly in the tradition of classic fruit machines. There’s a bright red background to the gold-edge reels with two intriguing red emergency lights on each side of the top- I couldn’t wait to get those flashing babies spinning. Inspired Gaming are masters at making these kinds of entertaining games (the 1st Down slot machine is another fine example), so sit back and enjoy the ride.
And you really can’t miss the satisfyingly massive spin button. It’s BIG.
There’s some lively electronic zapping and blinking that will make sure you’re not napping on the job. Enjoy the high energy atmosphere, there’s fun to be had Wombat fans.
The Fruit Climber slot is a tasty little number set over 3 rows, 5 reels and 10 pay-lines (initially). Wins are made up of at least a trio of matching adjacent icons. Go get em’ tiger. If you’re put off by the pay-line number, try a game like the Faerie Nights slot machine which has 25, but I’d recommend you stick it out. We tell you why in a minute.
The game’s logo is the highest value icon: land five of the game’s logo on an active pay-line and you’ll net a x50 your wager pay-out. There’s also the classic fruity icon, a lucky number 7, and the old school pair of golden bells. You could call this a comfort slot.
As the title suggests there’s a grand platter of traditional fruit machine sweet treats on the reels. Expect cherries, lemons and melons as the lower value icons. That’s just a wee snack for this fridge fiend.
The word “Wild” set against palm leaves subs for all icons. There’s a dosh-delivering Mystery icon which lands at random in the guise of a green question mark.
There’s also an Auto-play function for the energy savers and sightseers out there. To set up to 100 automatic spins, just hold down that oversized spin button.
This game’s main feature is expanding reels which are triggered at random. Prepare for an air horn to blast, and the pair of red emergency lights will start spinning and flashing when the feature triggers. I thought I was in the Ghostbuster’s office for a second there!
When the bonus is active, the reel set will grow between four and eight reels during this mode. This can take your gaming up to a mouth-watering 35 pay-lines! Woo-hoo.
And, there’s more. During an expansion, at least three of your reels become covered in stacked symbols to boost those symbol wins. Bring on the banana splits my friends.
The Mystery icon can arrive at any moment, though sadly not when the reels are extended. When they crop up they replace one of standard icons to help to generate a win for you. Classic fruit machine gaming just got that touch better!
The Fruit Climber slot is a medium variance game with a cool exterior that hides some pretty hot bonus treasure. Apart from the great classic fruity vibe there’s a trove of extras with expanding reels, stacked icons and mystery symbols.
Score: 4 out of 5
A new fruity classic.
