FruitBat Crazy Review
FruitBat Crazy is a game developed by Betsoft that uses the recognizable symbols of a classic slot machine. The game has been online since March 15, 2019, and is a mix between classic and modern. Betsoft’s game does not score highest in this category either. You can read all about this in this review.
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 95.22%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is low. A low volatility means that you win more frequently, but small amounts.
We are talking here about a classic 5-reel, 3-row slot machine. All options you need can be found at the bottom of the screen. We list them from left to right: The music, settings, your balance, the amount you win and your bet, the ‘spin’ button, autoplay, and the ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature. Everything speaks for itself, so you will find it soon.
How does FruitBat Crazy work?
FruitBat Crazy uses 243 possible ways to win (3x3x3x3x3). Since individual, small combinations do not yield too much, it is important to form multiple and large combinations with the most valuable symbols. You can choose to turn on the autoplay for a certain number of turns, but you can also press the ‘spin’ button per turn.
How do you play FruitBat Crazy?
The game starts with choosing the bet that suits your wallet. You can choose from 11 values between 0.08 and 8 euros. After this, the aim is to form beautiful, profitable combinations every spin. You form combinations by rotating at least 1 of the same symbol on the first three reels. The wild symbol can help you form combinations more easily! In addition, it is hoping to reach the bonus round, because here the big prizes are won!
The Symbols & Prices
Most of the symbols are taken from the classic slot machines, but there are also some additions. Below we draw up a list (from high to low) with the different symbols and the corresponding prices:
- 1.5x to 75x your stake for a pineapple combo. The pineapple has been added from modern games.
- 1.5x to 75x your stake for the diamonds. The diamond is the wild symbol.
- 1.25x to 3.75x your stake for a combination with 7’s.
- 0.5x to 2.25x your stake for a combination with grapes.
- 2x your stake for a combination with melons.
- 1,875x your stake for a combination of oranges.
- 1.25x your stake for cherries or golden bells.
It is also important to know that the symbols from a formed combination explode and thus create space for new symbols, so that you can possibly win again.
Cascading Reels (slightly adjusted)
Normally all symbols which participate in a winning combination will be removed from the playing field. However, in this game only the low paying symbols will disappear from the playing field. The general idea behind this is that the chance of winning combinations with high paying symbols will increase.
On reels 2 and 4, there may be Wilds that are ‘sticky’. This means that these Wilds stay in place, but then you have to keep making winning combinations!
The Double Up Feature is a classic Betsoft Feature. After every win you can decide to activate this feature by yourself. You will then play a pure gambling game (heads or tails) to double your money or lose it completely! You can also choose to gamble with 50% of your winnings!
You reach the bonus round by spinning 3 or more bats (the scatter symbol) in the base game. The more bats you manage to spin, the more free spins you get. The minimum number of bats (3 pieces) allows for 10 free spins and a payout of 1.5x your bet. The maximum number of bats (15 pieces gives you 200 free spins and 250x your bet as a payout, but this is virtually impossible.
Buy a bonus feature
FruitBat Crazy has also added this popular feature to their slot machine. For 90x your bet you get 20 free spins. With a bet of 1 euro you pay 90 euros for the bonus round, which is then played as if you bet 1 euro in the basic game.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win in the bonus round, for example, is difficult to determine because of the large number of free spins you can get. FruitBat Crazy scores 2/5 stars, just below average.
The game works fine and it is nice that it is a mix of classic and modern elements, but it does not have much to offer. It will therefore not become a really popular game and that is why it gets 2/5 stars.
