This classic fruity is a joy to play, volatile as hell so pays well, and full of colour and vibrance. Extra Juicy from Pragmatic Play is a reasonably simple but truly exciting game. Thin on the ground on the features side of things, but that volatility takes care for that, as when she goes, she really goes.
Presented over a classic 5 x 3 setup with a meagre 10 paylines, this slot packs a free spins round with a progressive multiplier, increasing by one on each free spin. It can retrigger too, pushing those wins through the roof with up to 60x your win available, that’s pretty huge! Available across all devices, so can cash in whist on the goo too.
Nice visuals and big money symbols
The slot keeps things simple with its design, and we like that. The design and the gameplay have been tailored to facilitate speed, ease of use and entertainment by Pragmatic play, and you really don’t know how valuable that is until it’s laid out in front of you.
Visually you’ll find fruit across a plain white reels, featuring cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes, melons and bells - classic fruit machine fayre. Here your most lucrative symbols is the bell, no surprises there, but those used to mechanical games of old will appreciate the 5, 50 or 100 times your stake wins gleaned when you get 3, 4 or 5 across the reels.
The wins can go either way, not just from the left, which opens up more chances, they can start from reels 2 or 3 tool. Three oranges across the same payline on reels 3, 4 and 5 still bags your a great win.
Features are few and far between, but are big payers
As mentioned before, there is only the one feature. However, when said feature ahs the potential to make you rich you don’t quibble, right? The Progressive Multiplier Free Spins feature is triggered by getting the diamond scatter across reels 1, 3 and 5 in one spin. A whopping 12 free spins then follow with that beautiful progressive multiplier.
On every spin the multiplier will increase by one increment on each of the free spins whether you win or not, for example, get a win on the sixth spin and you’ll get the benefit of a 6x multiplier, and so on. If you’re lucky enough to get a re-trigger, then thats when these bad boys are on home turf, this can happen four times too and bring with them massive wins - 60 free spins at a potential 60x the total earned. Ouch.
Taking all this into consideration, it’s no surprise that the ultra-high variance of this game see potential wins of 60000x your stake - we counted the zeros, not typos here, no sir. Of course, high variance also means periods of zilch, so only go into this one if you have the patience and dollar to keep ploughing on.
We love taking risks, and Extra Juicy let’s us do that with ease. It’ll eat through your money, but like all high risk strategies, if it pays off it really pays off. We have no more to say on this matter - play it!
