Berry Berry Bonanza is set against a stunning bright blue and purple backdrop and this sets the reels off perfectly and compliments the colourful fruity symbols beautifully and a cheerful soundtrack completes the ambiance of this slot that has far more flair than most of its competitors. Although this slot has just nine pay lines with the pays both ways players actually have 18 pay lines to play with. The pay table provides an in-depth analyses of the prizes on offer with the smallest pay out coming from the purple or red grapes, landing three awards players with x5 of their stake whilst landing a full set of five awards x100. There are another eight different types of berries on offer with the top payer being the strawberry, landing just one on a pay line rewards the player with x2 of their bet, land all five and your win will be a whopping x5,000 of the players stake, that’s very tasty indeed!
There is no doubt that all players will be familiar with cherries and these do seem to be one of the most popular symbols in a fruit slot, and whilst they are usually one of the lower paying symbols, the cherry in Berry Berry Bonanza has a completely different job as it is the games wild. The cherry can act as any of the other berries to complete winning combinations when it falls in the right place. The cherry can fill in any gaps to create a line of winning berries or extend a win over additional reels for a higher pay out. Not only is the cherry the wild it is also a multiplier so when it completes a pay line the player wins twice the basic value of the symbol, however players should note that the wild only lands on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels and has no value on its own.
There is just one symbol in Berry Berry Bonanza and this is the purple number seven which is the games scatter. In the majority of slots, the scatter will award a pay out wherever it lands, however in this slot it needs to land on at least two adjacent reels. We do feel that the scatter is a let down when compared to other similar offerings as it only pays multiples of the players line stake and not the actual total bet and it doesn’t activate any type of bonus features. But in reality, most classic fruit machines never had or have mini-games or free spins therefore true fruity fanatics won’t be expecting any more from this type of slot.
The bet range on offer in Berry Berry Bonanza starts from just 0.01 up to 1.00, which means that the maximum bet is £9 per spin so probably not the slot for the true high rollers. However, players do have the opportunity to activate the auto spin feature which means that they can sit back and watch all of the action unfold before them for up to 99 spins and there is also a Turbo button to help speed things along.
