Playson Releases New Fruit Xtreme Pokie

Elouise Spencer - 20 January 2020

Online casino game development studio Playson has finally unveiled their latest creation, Fruit Xtreme. The pokie is officially part of the Funky Fruits brand, which the company have been promoting heavily in recent months. A spokesman explained that the brand is an initiative that marks a conscious effort by the developers to make a return to classic pokies design, recapturing the days when fruit was the primary design choice for symbols.

Although just because classic design methods are being embraced, it doesn’t mean that the Funky Fruits games aren’t still dripping with high quality HD graphics, and enhanced by modern user interface advancements. In other words; the fun new title is a modern reel spinner with an interesting, retro coat of paint.

A Closer Look at the Game

At first glance, Fruit Xtreme is revealed to be a 3x5 title with 5 fixed paylines. Far less paylines than is expected in most pokies these days, but that is all in line with capturing a retro feel. Of course, the fruit symbols are also present, including cherries, lemons, plums, oranges, and melons. These tasty treats are joined by other iconic symbols snatched straight from days of old; the Lucky 7, BAR, and a Star.

The recognisable symbols on the reels are brought to life in stylish, cartoon-like graphics, both colourful and eye-catching. As far as visual appeal goes, this is a modern casino game that stands apart, boldly displaying a unique style.

But a pokie must be about more than just aesthetics to succeed, and thankfully Fruit Xtreme takes things to the next level in terms of gameplay.

Superb Special Features

The visuals of Fruit Xtreme may be retro inspired, but the special features are certainly based in more current trends. The standout feature is the multipliers, which range between X3 and X5. In order to trigger a multiplier, the player must manage to land the 3 same fruits on consecutive reels, with the more fruits present resulting in a higher multiplier.

The Scatter symbol, which pays regardless of appearing adjacent to another Scatter or not, is where the jackpot wins can be scored. 3 Scatters are need to earn a payout, but more Scatters will push the payouts into the stratosphere.

Fruit Xtreme is now available for play on desktop and mobile. It features a 95.66% RTP, and is a medium to high volatility title. Public response has so far been very positive, marking yet another successful entry into the Playson Funky Fruits brand.
