Bonus featured in Fruit Drops
The rewards in the Fruit Drops online slot are calculated as follows. For example, your bet is 50 credits. Three plums drop on one payline. Such a combination will pay you 10 credits but that would not be all.
Each winning combo will include the Lock & Drop bonus. The successful combo will get blocked with bars and remain in place while the reels will keep spinning. If more winning combos land on a payline, the rewards will be added to the previous one.
If no other symbols land, the reward for the previous combo will simply double.
If you land another winning combo during a re-spin, this combo will also get blocked. Empty boxes will re-spin one more time. The win will be added to the total amount.
In addition to the Lock & Drop bonus you have a chance to double your winnings by playing the risk game. The Gamble button becomes available after every successful combination. Click on it to take a risk.
You will see a face-down card on the screen. You will have to guess its colour. Click either Red or Black on either side of the card. If you guess correctly, your winnings will be doubled. The risk game will continue until you make the wrong guess. In this case the reward for the double-or-nothing and for the previous spin in the main game will be reset to zero and you will go back to the main game window.
If you do not want to risk your winnings, click Collect. This is when your payout will be added to your account and you will return to the main game.
Fruit Drops is a classical slot by Novomatic. Both re-spins and the risk game let you boost your winnings once you hit a successful combination, and the concise gameplay and its fruit theme will appeal to connoisseurs of a simple game.
