Look past the awful design and what you’ll find in this Fruit Duel slot is a mid-variance casino game with decent top wins and two very decent features filled with multipliers.
This is a fruit slot, meaning the paytable has one of everything you’d need for a smoothy: blueberries, lemons, grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, cherries, and strawberries. You even get a blackberry wild symbol.
What you can’t get away from is the dismal blurred background, the strange house encasing the three reels, and the green leaves left to give the slot some colour. It’s the worse version of a fruit machine design that you could get. And yet…
The Fruit Duel slot reviews get 4 stars because it does everything else right: it’s a 17 payline 3×3 game where a VS wild can trigger a wild multiplier with 100x multipliers, giving you a possible top win of 3,333x your bet.
Add some free spin bonus, and some scatters, and while it might not look it, this is actually a nicely balanced video slot machine with some very affordable bonus buys.
The primary feature of this Fruit Duel online slot is the VS symbol, which shows up on all 3 reels.
When it does, a battle will trigger between two of the fruits on the reel. It’s a cute little animation, but all it means is that the VS symbol will expand into a wild reel and trigger a multiplier ranging from 2x to 100x.
It’s an effective way of making the paytable go a little further and making you feel like you could get bigger wins on any spin. However they don’t show up as often as we might like.
That said, much like in the Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours slot, you have a big bet option. For 10x your bet, you can guarantee one VS symbol landing on each spin – but that does increase the minimum bet from 0.10 to 1 a spin.
If you can’t afford to bet 1 a spin, you may want to simply wait for 3 scatter to come along naturally and trigger 10 Fruit Duel slot free spins.
During the bonus, the reels are much richer, both in the number of VS symbols that you can find and in the multipliers. In the base game, if you see a multiplier of 10x your bet, you count yourself lucky. In the free spins, multipliers of over 10x are far more common.
This is a Bonus Bet Buy slot game, so you can simply spend 80x your bet to trigger the free spins directly, but we would recommend you turn on the big bet option for 8 or 80 spins instead – the return is a little higher.
Either way, you can’t deny that this Fruit Duel game has a surprising number of ways to allow you to play a 3 reel slot, and we were happy to be surprised, especially with that top win of 3,333x your bet.

Wilds: The blackberry is the wild symbol and can replace all others to create a win on this 17 payline slot machine.
Duel Reels: If you land a VS symbol on the reel, it triggers an expanded wild with any of the following multipliers: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 20, 25x, 50x, 75x, or 100x. This is done via an animation of two fruits battling each other.
Scatters and Free Spins: Land 3 purple berry scatter symbols to trigger 10 free spins with richer reels. You have a much better chance of landing the base game and are more likely to get a higher multiplier value.

The Fruit Duel slot may not look great, but we enjoyed the simple pleasure of watching the wild reels with multipliers.
This slot game is for lovers of classic and video slots alike, giving you a nice 'in-between' mid-variance mechanics for players looking to move from one type to the other.
You still get a decent top win, but you'll have to hit the free spins to get that chance or be willing to spin £$€1 a spin for some big bet feature.
A little something for everyone and one to find at your favourite mobile casinos online.
