Fruit vs Candy slot from Microgaming

Fruit vs Candy slot from MicrogamingMicrogaming could have developed two separate slots, but they decided to combine two topics into one machine and decide Fruit or Candy. They made the fruit look so juicy and the Candy so sweet; it’s a delicious DILEMMA. Luckily, the developer offered an easy solution at the Fruit vs Candy slot machine: whenever you change your mind during the base game, you can switch the reels. Both Fruit and Candy are equally lucrative, according to the developers. Besides the luxury of choice, all the standard features, like Free Spins, Wilds, and two randomly triggered Bonus treats, are available. Jumpy electro-pop accompanies the spins and adds a flavorful dynamic and overall energetic vibe.

Even though the slot comes with an RTP under the industry average (95.77%), there are plenty of choices to score a sizeable portion on this Medium-High Variance ‘basket of prizes’. The mouth-watering action takes place on a 5x3 grid, crossed by 243 win ways, and with a maximum payout of 97 000 coins, the Fruit vs Candy slot machine is certainly one to get a taste of.

Personal testers’ opinion

We found out that the Fruit vs Candy slot machine (2017) is a full game-reskin of Lost Vegas (2016). If you have read our articles on games cloning/reskinning, you probably know that we have only a negative view and disappointing sentiment on this practice - manufacturing reproductions. We sense that lately, in the think-tank units at the work labs of some giant software developers, the idea of as many quick, new, and cheap titles as possible stands stronger than the notion of virtuosity, reputation, and player satisfaction!

Back to the current 2 fold machine: 65% of the prize pool is put aside for payouts in Free Spins, i.e. decent division of funds, providing good options in both - base and bonus rounds. The probability of triggering the bonus feature is 0.50% (statistically, every 200th spin), long, maybe, but worth waiting for. Our average win during testing in the Free Spins was 162x the total bet. Regarding bonus hunters' choices, we can only leave negative recommendations, as the Fruits vs Candy slot machine is seriously wobbling the balance, i.e. not suitable to complete the requirements, scoring just 4.2 (out of 10) wagering points.
