There are so many 3D slots within the BetSoft mobile range that we have come to expect them as standard – especially after just coming off our review of the dazzling After Night Falls. Now, Fruit Zen is technically a 3D slot, as you will be able to tell from the symbols when the game loads, but the theme is actually one of the most traditional of all – just as the name would suggest. As is becoming increasingly common at the moment, this game looks to appeal to a broad audience by combining fruit machine action with video slot touches and you can find out within the full review below just how Fruit Zen gets on.
What to Expect
See, we told you the symbols on this game were something special! We have probably played over a thousand different slots that make use of fruit symbols over the years, but we cannot recall playing even one where the fruits looked as good as this. BetSoft is getting firmly in to ‘good enough to eat’ territory here on Fruit Zen and we could not be happier to see it. Functionally, the symbols are not much different to any other fruits – they can often land in stacks that can cover whole reels and they will pay out decent but not necessarily breath-taking prizes when they are put together in winning patterns over one or more of the ten win lines.
Well, we say that the game is played over ten win lines, and that is technically the case, but one part of this slot that simply cannot be ignored is the fact that it pays both ways. Whether your fruit wins begin from the first reel or the fifth, as long as three or more symbols match up, you will be well on your way to taking down something.
As fruit machine tradition would dictate, there are no free spins or other bonus rounds here on Fruit Zen, but there is one more part of the game to get excited about, that being the Fruit Zen logo. This symbol is a wild card and when it lands, it will expand to cover the whole reel automatically. Even though it only lands on the three middle reels, that is still good enough for most tastes. Further to this, that newly expanded wild will also stick in place while a free respin plays out, and if you land another on that respin then that too will expand and both will remain where they are for another respin. Either instantly or gradually, you have the potential to turn the whole middle of the board wild and you do not even have to pay for the privilege of the ensuing spins, but you can make the most of the thirty win lines when you see the prizes coming into view.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Fruit Zen is one of the simpler BetSoft slots out there at the moment, but it could well be the total package for fruit machine fans that want something a bit bigger, more complex and more involved than the traditional three-reel games. You don’t have to worry about leaving the main board as that is where everything takes place, but this mobile slot gives off a real Starburst vibe, and there are not many bigger compliments to pay to any mobile slot game!
