Fruit Fiesta is a Microgaming pokie that utilises a basic aesthetic and can be found on casinos like Safe Casino. Making use of the classic arcade symbols, Fruit Fiesta injects a little modern flare into things and it also has a progressive jackpot that has been known to go above $160,000, and regularly pays out half of this.
Fruit Fiesta has 15 paylines spread across 5 reels, although the aesthetic, which includes symbols such as 7s and bells, has more in common with 3 reel and single payline pokies. There are no huge paying symbols here, and there are no special wilds either, but the progressive jackpot is a standout feature and that seems to be where most of the emphasis has been placed.
You can’t change how many of the 15 paylines that you play on Fruit Fiesta, and you can’t alter the size of your bet either. There is a set bet of just $0.75, which can unlock the progressive jackpot.
There are no bonus rounds on Fruit Fiesta, but the progressive jackpot is unlocked at a greater frequency than the jackpots on similar pokies, and as this regularly stretches above $100,000, that’s more than enough to get players excited about this game.
There is also a scatter symbol, but this works like scatters in old school arcade games, meaning that it triggers a random and instant win, as opposed to any sort of feature.
The set bet is going to put a lot of players off Fruit Fiesta, but there is enough going for it elsewhere to make up for that, and providing that you’re not used to spending tens or hundreds of dollars per spin, and that you’re not a penny pokie player, then you will probably be okay with it.
