Fruit Party 2 from Pragmatic Play returns in August to continue the unprecedented success of its predecessor! Fruit Party itself isn’t that old, but its popularity is undeniable and Pragmatic Play rightly thought that Fruit Party deserves a sequel.
The return of Fruit Party is one that’s sure to excite players everywhere. The potential of the first slot even within the Base Game made it a very viable choice for slot players everywhere hunting out the big hit, and the accompanying light-hearted theme and iconic steel drum music made it something that you could just relax to.
Fruit Party 2 looks like it keeps the essence of the first slot very much alive, but there are sure to be differences to make it stand out a bit from the original.
At a glance, it seems as if the maximum win potential of Fruit Party 2 is identical to the original. While it would have been a lot better and a lot more appealing if Pragmatic Play cranked up the potential, 5,000x is still no small number.
In this Fruit Party 2 Slot review, we’ll be heading back into the fruity world for a second time to see if Fruit Party 2 can impress as much as its older sibling did, and still does.
The theme for Fruit Party 2 is very reminiscent of the first game, so the changes you’ll notice here is how polished this slot is compared to the original. Fruit Party 2 gives a lot more prominence to the backdrop compared to the first slot. You’ll see an idyllic village cottage, green hills, blue skies and trees that bear ample fruit in an overall happy and uplifting setting.
When it comes to Fruit Party, the most important thing is of course the music. The music for the original slot was so good, and you’d be forgiven for worrying about how Pragmatic Play handled the music in the sequel. Thankfully, the quality of the music has stayed high into the sequel with an upbeat tropical song that really gets you in the mood for some Fruit Party.
Overall, we think players will be very happy about how Pragmatic Play have gone about designing Fruit Party 2. When a slot is held in such high esteem, changing the formula too much may cause some disassociation and disappointment, but Fruit Party 2 is very evidently a Fruit Party slot through and through.
Fruit Party 2 is a cluster pays slot, just as the original was.
To form a winning cluster, you’ll need to connect at least 5 symbols horizontally or vertically. The Tumble Feature seen in Fruit Party 1 is also present in Fruit Party 2. This means that winning symbols will disappear, causing new symbols to fall in via a cascade for the possibility of even more wins.
So far, everything looks pretty similar to the original Fruit Party, but the differences become apparent when you look at how Fruit Party 2 handles the multipliers.
Whenever a cluster of symbols hit and explode it may randomly spawn a Wild symbol in a random space. Whenever a Wild generated by a winning cluster first appears, it will contain a 2x multiplier. If this Wild hits with another winning cluster then it will explode, but it has the potential to randomly appear again. If it does return, it has the potential to carry with it a 4x, 8x, 16x, 32x, 64x, 128x or a 256x multiplier.
If more than one Wild symbols are party of the same winning cluster, then their totals are added together for a total win multiplier.
The Golden Fruit once again serves as the Scatter symbol for Fruit Party 2.
During the Free Spins round, the Random Wild Multiplier Feature is active yet again. The difference between the Wild Multiplier here compared to the Base Game is that it will start with a 3x multiplier, and subsequent hits after that may turn it into a 9x, 27x, 81x, 243x and 729x
Fruit Party 2 has a Bonus Buy option for those outside the UK. This will be available for 100x your stake, and it will grant you access to the bonus round with at least 3 Scatters.
The Bonus Buy option has proven to be exceedingly popular among European players, and you can see why considering how difficult Fruit Party 2 can be to a bonus.
Fruit Party 2 looks great on paper with multipliers that are exponentially higher than those available in Fruit Party 1, yet, the maximum win capabilities stay the same.
Nobody thinks that 5,000x is a small figure by any stretch of the imagination, but Pragmatic Play could have built so much more hype for this title if the max win was higher. By now, this is something we’ve come to expect from Pragmatic Play.
Very few of their titles exceed the 5,000x figure, but meanwhile, others are out there taking slots to unprecedented heights with maximum win capabilities that contributes significantly to the allure of the slot. At least the RTP has been improved ever so slightly with a figure of 96.50%
In other areas, the Random Wild Multipliers are in theory much better, but seeing a single Wild with a multiplier doesn’t induce nearly as much excitement as seeing a cluster of fruits with a bunch of them. In the original slot, symbols could gain multipliers at any time after a cascade, creating a sense of anticipation. In this slot, the Wild symbol may not appear after an initial winning cluster, so you know straight away that the imminent tumble bears no fruit so to speak.
Don’t get us wrong, Fruit Party 2 is Fruit Party after all, so its greatness and its potential can’t be denied or trivialised when you look at the picture as a whole. Despite some disappointing aspects of this slot, we’re confident that Fruit Party 2 is capable of great things, but we think it could have been so much bigger.
Overall, we think that Fruit Party 2 is a very solid option if you’re a fan of the Fruit Party, but don’t be surprised if you prefer the original.
