Fruit vs Candy slot review
Fruit vs Candy is a 5 reel free play online slot by Microgaming with 243 ways to create winning combinations of Identical symbols. It has 2 different free spins modes and after unsuccessful spins, 2 additional bonuses can randomly be triggered.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Two bonuses are used during the free spins which are triggered once the Scatter symbol comes up:
- Fruit - Cash Stash
- Candy - Sweet Reel
You can choose one of them prior to spinning the reels. At any moment during the main gameplay you can switch to the other bonus. To do this, click on the Play Candy/Play Fruit switch in the upper right corner of the game window.
Fruit – the Cash Stash option
During the operation of this bonus any of the five lowest-paying symbols (card symbols) that come up on the reels will be removed from the screen. Every removed picture will earn you some extra points. The winning combinations are formed with the help of symbols which fall from the top and pay you a reward again.
Candy - the Sweet Reel option
A column full of sweets landed on the reels, makes the reel "sweet". Any single symbol on a ''sweet'' reel will turn into the Wild one. Free spins will continue until all five reels turn ''sweet''. If a number of free spins reaches 50, you earn a random bonus payout and free spins will stop.
During the free spins session the same bet is used for calculation of the win as in the round that had earned you the free spins in the first place. You cannot earn any free spins again during the round of free spins. The Scatter symbol will not come up during the free spins.
The Sugar Rush bonus
This bonus can take place in the main game after any unsuccessful spin. All of the highest-paying symbols landed on the reels will pay you a reward. Also during this bonus one Scatter symbol will be enough to trigger some free spins.
The Goodie Bag bonus
This bonus will come up randomly after every unsuccessful spin. You will get the amount of your bet multiplied 20 times.

Rules of the Fruit vs Candy Slot
To start playing the Fruit vs Candy slot by Microgaming, you have to place your bet beforehand. For that purpose you should set the following values:
- Coin value
- The number of coins you would like to bet
Click on the arrow in the right corner of the Bet button to open a pop-up menu. The menu will contain two sections:
- Coin Size (value of a coin)
- Coins (coins)
Each of them has the +/- buttons. The slot has four options for the coin value ranging from 0.01 to 0.1 credits and 15 options for the number of coins from 1 to 15. You can also change your bet size by clicking on the same buttons on the both sides of the Bet section.
Your selected bet value will be multiplied by 30. This is the way your total bet will be calculated as shown in the Bet section.
This fruit slot features two kinds of in-game currency units: credits and coins. When you start the game, you will always have a certain number of credits - 2,000. The number of coins will depend on your preset coin value. This figure can vary from 20,000 to 200,000.
You can see these values on the table to the left. This section will also have a small arrow in the upper right corner. By clicking on it you will see a pop-up menu with Options and Summary. The Options feature lets you select one of the three modes on the screen:
- Demo Credits - displays the number of credits
- Demo Coins - shows the amount of coins. In this case, one more section - Coin Size will come up on the control panel
- Demo Coins&Demo Credits - displays both the number of coins and credits at the same time. The Coin Size section will also be displayed.
The Summary option displays the current state of your balance both in credits and coins.
Then you can hit Spin and start the game. This is the easiest way. Once the reels have been launched, the Spin button will turn into the Stop button in case so that you could stop the spins ahead of time.
You can use the Autoplay option for a more convenient gameplay. Once you click on it, a pop-up menu will come up with the following options:
- A specified number of autospins (10, 25, 50 and 100)
- The reels will spin until you stop them
- You set the values for autospins manually
These options include any number of autospins that you desire and the conditions for stopping them. Autospins will stop when the following scenarios occur:
- Your win reaches or exceeds your specified value
- Your preset number of spins has been completed
- Any additional option comes up
The reward that you earned during the spins will be displayed in the Win section. You can view your win in both credits and coins at the same time by clicking on the arrow in the upper right corner. This is where you can also view the information about the best winnings that were ever earned in this slot. You can play this slot for free as we use the trial version of the game on our website to allow you to get used to the game.
Winning combinations are read from left to right starting with the leftmost reel. If several winning combos land during one spin, they all will pay you a reward. However, if one symbol becomes a part of several combinations in a row, only the highest-paying combo will pay a reward.
You can find two buttons in the top right corner of the screen. Click on the speaker button to adjust the volume with the slider that will appear on the screen. Right next to it is a button with a question mark that opens the text version of the game rules.
On the bottom of the game screen you will see the black button that displays three sub-menus:
In the Options menu you can set the following values for the game:
- Speed of a reelspin
- Quality of graphics
- Sound effects
The Stats menu lets you view the statistics for the game:
- Number of spins
- Duration of the gameplay
- Three maximum rewards
The combinations with the Wild symbol and spins that did not get you any free spins or other bonuses will not be shown in the statistics as the winning ones. The Help sub-menu, just like the question mark, opens a new window with an online help section for the rules of the game.
