Kirigami meets classic fruit symbols on the slot from Hacksaw Gaming. FRUTZ is taking you into the world of artistic paper cuts across a 5×5 grid with wild substitutions, cluster pays, cascading symbols, accumulative win multipliers and a free spins feature that can lead to wins of up to 10,000 times your bet.
Frutz is a 5×5 grid slot with cascading symbols and cluster pays. Wins are awarded for clusters of five or more matching symbols or in combination with wilds landing horizontally and/or vertically connected. You can spin the origami-style fruits on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.40%. Using the three Bonus Buy options will result in RTP values from 96.37% to 96.79%.
Kirigami is a type of origami art, differing in such that the paper is not only folded but also in specific patterns. Once the paper is then opened, it will then take up the desired shape, e.g. a building, character or similar. Hacksaw used a piece of Kirigami as their canvass for the grid slot while the symbols itself have a origami vibe.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 10 through to A, awarding across the board 20x your bet for clusters of 11 or more matching symbols. They are followed by origami-style green pears, blue plums, oranges, yellow lemons and red apples. Hit 11+ clusters to win 50x to 100x your stake.
There are three special symbols. An orange Kirigami icon marked with the word itself is the wild, substituting for all regular symbols. A range of ‘X’ marked symbols will reveal win multipliers while an FS icon acts as the scatter.
Frutz Slot Features
Hacksaw Gaming is keeping to its niche of unconventional slot designs that not only stand out from the crowd but also have big win potential. On this occasion, they created what some would call a sequel to an earlier game although it shares only a single albeit significant feature. Let’s take a closer look.
The game engine feature cascading symbols and cluster pays. At the start of a new round, 25 symbols will drop onto the grid from the top. Hitting any win will see them removed while the remainder drops towards to bottom before new ones cascade into the empty spaces. The process continues as long as more wins occur after a cascade.
Core to scoring those big wins are the win multipliers which can land at any time during a spin sequence in the base game and free spins. Based on the colour and structure, they will reveal a random multiplier which will be added to the small display shown in the U of the game title. Any cluster wins will then be multiplied by the current accumulated factor. In the base game, multipliers reset between spins. Here’s what factors each X icon can reveal:
- Light Blue: Will reveal x1, x2 or x5 multipliers
- Dark Blue: Will reveal x10, x15 or x20 multipliers
- Striped Blue: Will reveal x25, x50 or x100 multipliers
Hitting three, four or five FS scatters anywhere on the grid will trigger 8, 10 and 12 Free Spins respectively. During the feature, all multipliers appearing will be accumulated as in the base game but will never reset between free spins. Instead, it will keep increasing until the end of the round
For the impatient among us slotting folks, there is again a Buy Bonus button that will grant instant access to the Free Spins feature (restricted in some jurisdictions). It will cost you a one-time bet of 93x, 142x and 200x your stake for a bonus round with 8, 10 and 12 Free Spins respectively. Beware, the features are rather volatile.
To stay with the spelling, Frutz is a no-frillz, no-spillz grid slot with straight gaming, yet potent features when they fire up. Multipliers can reach insane values in the base game and free spins, making it a good choice for quick hit-and-runs as well as longer sessions.
