Description and Review: The first thing you can say about Funky Fruits Farm is ‘aw, cute’. The fruits symbols – Watermelon, Grumpy Lemon, Cherry and Pineapple – all have a cute-sy cartoon-y feel that is accentuated if you hit a win and see the animations.
So, graphically at least, Funky Fruits Farm looks fun and fresh. And, indeed, watching the opening video, it seems to have so much potential. There is the chance of a 10,000x line bet win if you get five wilds, for example. As the wilds are stacked on all reels, this doesn’t seem beyond the realms of possibility.
Similarly, the free spins round promises a maximum of 33 free spins with a very decent 15x multiplier. As I said, it all looks very promising.
The reality is a little different, unfortunately. Don’t get me wrong – Funky Fruits Farm is fun to play but the return to player percentage of 92.07% tells you all you really need to know about the slot.
Those stacked wilds? They don’t appear very often at all and the triggering combination for the free spins round is even more of a rarity.
We did like the animations and the ‘fruit pick’ game that occurs before the free spins. This is where you choose two from five fruits to get additional free spins or a larger win multiplier.
Oh, and the fact that the free spins can be re-triggered. We liked that too. And, heck, we did pick up some impressive wins in the free spins feature whenever it hit.
The problem, I think, is that the base game gets boring fairly quickly and you’ll find you are stuck in it for endless numbers of spins as your bankroll slowly goes down.
If you were lucky enough to hit a bonus round or two early on, you might well have a different opinion of Funky Fruits Farm. So, I’d say, definitely give it a go. But don’t go chasing the features or the stacked wilds as that 92.07% return strongly suggests you won’t get them.
