Fruitful Siesta

Fruitful Siesta is a neat looking fruit machine re-boot slot version by Playson. It͛s got 5 reels, 10 paylines and a Flip feature where all the symbols with similar payouts change into one icon and a re-spin follows. The more re-spins you acquire, the more you can get higher value stacks throughout the re-spins. This slot will take a little getting used to so make sure you check out the paytable to get an idea on how to play. One thing worth noting is that this slot plays both ways. This creates a chance to win better and more wins as well. Stakes start from 20p to £30 per spin.

About the Game

The game has a gentle background with soft clouds floating along the game board. Church spires and green treetops surround the reels and create a vision of a rural idyll with a very peaceful setting. Game symbols include one star, a pair of stars and a trio of them. These pay 0.5x, 1.5x or 7.5x your wager if you hit 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Next are the classic set of lower valued fruit symbols which include; berries, oranges and lemons. These pay 1x, 2.5x or 12.5x your wager. Next is symbols which are a level higher- melons and cherries. These award 1.5x, 4x or 20x your stake. The lucky 7 and bell offer 5x, 20x or 200x your bet if you manage to land a 3, 4 or 5 consecutively.

•Flip feature- This is the game͛s main feature which is activated when you land a wild icon on the reel in the middle. All of the star icons change into the one similar silver coin icon. The berries, oranges and lemons change into gold coins. The lemons and cherries turn into a gold bar and the 7 and bell symbols become a diamond. The cash rewards pay the same as they would in normal play. The only difference is that it gets easier to hit a big winning combo.

•Flip re-spin- A re-spin is awarded after a new payout is made. If you hit another wild during the re-spin, the process repeats itself and there͛s more stacked symbols of higher value. There͛s 3 levels in total if you͛re able to hit all 3 wilds that offer the highest prizes from the final re-spin. The re-spins sound a little complicated, but are going to get easier the more you land them, which may be more often than you think.

The Verdict

This slot doesn͛t have any ingenious out of this world offerings, but it does have the Flip which is quite a smart innovation. This feature also promises to provide a steady stream of action in an otherwise dull slot. The only trace of ͚Siesta͛ in the game is probably in its soundtrack.
