Thunderkick software is a new comer into the online gaming business, designed by ex-NetEnt’s employees, so it is no wonder that Thunderkick games are exciting and really fun to play, as far as entertainment is concerned. Generally, graphics, animations and sounds utilised in the games are simple and basic, but Fruit Warp is nicely presented in realistic 3D, which I find pleasing, although a little strange at first due to the absence of icon grids and only 9 icons being used. Nonetheless, I like it, so 0 star down/up.
Paytable wise, all prizes are shown in monetary values, as against line bet or total bet values. Pitayas, the highest paying symbol, pay 216 x total bet for all-of-a-kind, while Kiwanos pay 45 x, a big gap between the two. But the good thing is that the win multiplier is infinite, meaning, it can be as high as it can go, theoretically, so it is possible to get big wins at very high win multipliers. The highest I’ve seen so far is 48 x, the highest win multiplier anywhere in any game! Sadly though, there are no other options to get even bigger wins, so 1 star down.
Feature wise, Fruit Warp plays and pays in a straightforward manner, unlike any other slot game. Each time 4 similar fruit icons appear at once, the other 5 icons gets warped into another icon. 5 and more of the same icon trigger the feature game, and this is where Fruit Warp is like no other game online! 1 or more same triggering icon awards a respin, whilst 3 or more same icons pay cash and a win multiplier, increasing both the cash and the win multiplier meters. The respin ends when no more triggering icon appear. The accumulated cash then gets multiplied by the accumulated win multiplier, giving a final payout amount. A novelty in itself, which I find very interesting, enjoyable, and adrenaline-pumping nonetheless. Sadly though, there’s a lack of more free game features, so 1 star down.
When I first started playing the game at the smallest bet amount of $0.10 per spin, the first 15 or more spins were completely blanks. That got me worried a little. Then it started to give intermittent small payouts. I was relieved. As I played on, 4 pitayas appeared on screen, the other 5 fruit icons then warped and turned into more pitayas (3 more I think), for a total of 7 pitayas or so, and triggering the feature game. The pitayas keep coming at each respin. I was too excited to keep track of what was happening, until it finally paid out a whopping $60.17 at $0.10 bet, for a 601x total bet win. Simply exhilarating! A huge win on the very first feature game, and on the very first play on the game too! I enjoyed the game so much it got me hooked for life from that day on! 1 star up.
After playing more than 50,000 spins on Fruit Warp to date, I must admit that it doesn’t have any real huge wins potential, but it does give an exciting game play, lots of fun time and a very entertaining time. Small wins are reasonably easy to come by, but big wins are much harder to get, so smart play is always necessary to make the most of this game! The highest win multiplier I’ve got so far is 41 x, and the biggest win amount was about $585, I think. Even so, I have yet to break my 601 x bet win and I’ll keep on trying. I just love Fruit Warp, but due to a lack of any really big wins potential, it’s 1 star down.
