Berry Blast Slot from Amaya
Berry Blast is a five reel slot from Amaya Gaming that features a whole host of different fruits on the reels. These are certainly not normal fruits, unless of course, you are accustomed to seeing fruits with eyes and a mouth. The slot is a light-hearted and entertaining game which starts with a mischievous looking blueberry bouncing across the reels. You’ll find a number of fruit based symbols on the reels including blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and both red and green grapes, while the slot also features two distinct bonus rounds. The first is a mini free spins bonus round; while the second sees you enter a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ style fruit based game.
How to Win on Berry Blast
The friendly looking blackberry is the highest paying symbol at the slot, worth an eye catching 10,000 coins when hitting the maximum five in a row. The blackberry is also the wild symbol, substituting for every other apart from the bonus, free spin or scatter symbols, enabling many additional wins. The blackberry is also the only symbol of the game which pays out when hitting just 2 in a row.
The standard symbols at Berry Blast are made up by single and double cherries which both pay 1,000 coins for five in a row, a plum and an orange which both pay 500 coins and the playing card symbols A, K, Q and J (which make up the smaller wins)
There are two scatter symbols, the red and the green grapes. Each of these pays out a win based upon the total stake for a spin, with 5x coming your way for landing three anywhere across the reels, 20x for landing four and 50x for the maximum five. As an added bonus, a combination of the two grape symbols will also see you receive a payout ranging from 2x to 15x.
Berry Blast Bonus Features
The strawberry represents the free spins symbol which only appears on reels 1 and 5. When it appears on both you’ll enter a mini feature where you’ll have 3 free spins. These spins have the added bonus of a 3x multiplier, which will certainly give the bankroll a boost.
Land the blueberry on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reels on a pay-line and you’ll enter the second screen bonus feature. You’ll be taken to a second screen featuring a wheel, each segment but one containing a credit value, the other segment advancing you to the next level. You’ll have two spins at each level and if you can advance, this can be a hugely profitable feature.
Design and Setup
Berry Blast is a slot with a cartoon style design, many of the fruit symbols with particularly friendly features, which is not something I say about fruit every day! The variety of fruit based symbols ensures that the slot is highly colorful throughout, where even the playing card symbols have a fruit design. The exploding title stands out above the reels, while berries float in the air in the backdrop to the reels. The accompanying sound is exactly what you would expect when watching a cartoon and makes for the perfect accompaniment to the gameplay.
This Amaya designed online slot game has 5 reels and 30 pay lines in total. You’ll choose the coin value, which ranges from just 1c through to 25c, while you can also increase the bet size from 30 credits per spin up to 300 credits per spin. The auto play feature is handy although you’ll have to set this manually by clicking the right arrow up for each auto spin (handy hint : click the left arrow button when the auto spin is on 0 and it will automatically set it to the maximum 99).
Berry Burst is a game that will be certain to place a smile on your face. From the berry bursting opening video sequence, you’ll be entertained throughout, with a nice variety of features. Both the free spins feature and the spin the wheel game are nice additions to the game, while the fact that you have two scatters ensures that there is always something to look out for on every spin.
