Important Game Symbols
Select your lines, place your bet, spin the reels and away you go! Go ahead and gamble your winnings if you're feeling brave enough and don't forget that free spins and jackpot prizes could also be coming your way!
A "Wild" is a symbol that can be substituted for any other symbol (except a Scatter, or Progressive) to make the best win possible. Astro Fruit will do this automatically for you.
A "Scatter" gives you multiple free spins (variable in number) of the reels if 3, or more, Scatter symbols appear anywhere when the reels have stopped.
This will trigger the Free Play feature. When this happens you are awarded a multiple of your current bet, no matter what happens during the forthcoming free play period.
When free play is activated you will be shown the 15 Astro Fruit reel position boxes with question marks inside each of them. Behind each question mark is either a message saying "one spin", "five spins", "two spins", etc, or the instruction "Begin Free Spins".
As you click on each box in turn the numbers that appear are added together to give the total number of free spins you will eventually have. When the instruction "Begin Free Spins" is revealed this process ends and the free spins begin automatically and will play out with the same selected lines and bet amount that were in place when the free spins were won.
Free Spin Amounts Achievable (does not include any further re-spin amounts):
Note that Scatters are associated with "Super Wilds". A Super Wild is a Wild that displays a number. The Wild remains in play for that number of further spins. Note that Super Wilds only appear when the free spin feature is being played and will disappear after the last "sticky" spin or the last "free" spin (whichever occurs first).
The progressive jackpot consists of a fixed minimum amount which gradually increases by a percentage of funds inputted into the game until it is won. When the jackpot is won, it is reset to the seed amount and begins to rise again. The progressive Jackpot symbol is connected to three progressive jackpots. Which progressive jackpot is won depends upon the number of consecutive symbols (paying left to right on any ACTIVE win line only - no wild card substitution). Progressive jackpots are available in real play only; each individual current jackpot total is displayed above the talk-back panel.
Important points to note about Jackpots:
Return to Player
The game has a return to player of 96.25%. If you are betting less than the minimum qualifying bet of $0.25 per line, the game has a return to player of 93.10%.
System malfunction voids all pays and play.
What are Winning Lines?
Astro Fruit is a 20-line slot game that may present 20 winning combinations of five symbols across its five reels. A 'win line' is a line of symbols that MAY contain a winning combination when the reels stop. A win line must contain a minimum of three consecutive symbols (appearing from left to right) for any payout to be made. However, this does not apply to Scatters.
For Astro Fruit's 20 lines, winning combinations are as follows:
Selecting Lines for Play
Astro Fruit will always play a 20-line game unless you intervene. That is, it will always proceed on the basis that 20 win lines are possible. Note that when you place a bet on Astro Fruit your bet amount is accepted on a PER LINE basis. The more lines you have selected the greater the amount you need to bet. For example, if you have 10 lines selected and you bet $1, the overall bet amount will be $10.
If you do not want to play a 20-line game then use the Lines Button (+/-) to reduce/increase the number of possible win lines. For example (and with reference to the win-line table above): If you reduce the number of lines to 19, any possible payout from line 20 becomes unavailable. If you then reduce the number of lines to 18, any possible payout from lines 19 and 20 become unavailable, and so on.
Customizing Your Line Selection
You will notice that each line is represented by an Indicator Button, numbered 1-20, displayed on either side of the reels. These indicators are also illuminated when the game is first displayed, meaning all lines are active. You can disable/enable as many lines as you wish by clicking the appropriate Indicator Button.
Note: It is possible to use a combination of the Lines Button and individual Line Indicator buttons to select lines. If you are doing this then please remember the following:
If (-) is pressed the highest selected line is deselected. If (+) is pressed the lowest unselected line is selected.
Setting Your Bet Amount
Once the number of lines you want to play have been selected it is time to decide how much money to bet on each of them. Remember that bets are accepted on a per line basis. To increase, or decrease, the amount you are going to bet on each line, click the plus (+) or minus (-) buttons in the bet/Line box.
The total bet amount for your forthcoming Astro Fruit game will be bet/Line multiplied by the number of lines you have chosen to play. For example, if you select $2 in the bet/Line box and you decide to play 20 lines then the total amount that will be bet on the next game will be $40. This is shown in the Total bet box.
What You Can Win
Astro Fruit displays its win values (or payouts) in its own Paytable. They can be viewed by clicking the Paytable Button. Payouts are based on specific symbol combinations appearing on win lines and are shown in multiples of the winning line bet amount. For example, 5 - 750 means that if five instances of a particular symbol appear on the win line the payout will be 750 multiplied by amount bet, per line.
Only the highest single payment is made per winning line. For example, five matching icons pay out the value for five icons and not for four icons or three icons.
An icon can contribute to one or more win lines. Win line payouts are accumulated.
Spinning the Reels
When you have selected your lines and selected a bet it's time to play. To activate Astro Fruit click the Spin Button. When the reels stop (and after any free spins, or features, have been played out), any wins will be highlighted and any winnings will be added automatically to your balance.
If you want to play a number of games in succession you may want to use the Auto Spin Button. To increase or decrease the number of auto spins you want click the plus (+) or minus (-) buttons in the Auto Spin box. To then activate Astro Fruit under the control of the auto spin function click the Auto Spin Button and the game will play automatically as many times as you specify (assuming you have sufficient funds). Auto spinning can be cancelled at any time by clicking the Stop Button.
If there is a win during auto play the Gamble Button, Auto Spin Button and Stop Button will flash alternately for a short while; if you don't press anything then the auto spin will continue. If you choose to gamble then autospin will continue when you exit the gamble game. If you press the Auto Spin it will skip any win animations and continue with auto spins. If you press Stop it will cancel the remaining auto spins.
Note: Any interaction by you during auto play (except that described above) will stop it immediately.
