The Fruit Warp mobile slot is a game like no other, seeming wonderfully familiar and yet twisting every rule of slot machines for it’s own unique use.
When you first load this Thunderkick video slot, it will have you believe that it’s a traditional fruit machine, but with some more exotic fruits.
The cherries, grapes, and oranges are still there, but then so are bananas, kiwanos, strawberries and pitaya. This fruit salad isn’t served on traditional 5x 3 reels, instead you get 9 floating symbols roll in from space.
To get a win, you simply need 3 or more symbols of the same fruit anywhere on screen. No paylines, just what is on display.
Sounds simple right?
Here’s where things get interesting. Because any 3 of a kind wins tends to be… fairly discouraging, and rarely worth your bet.
4 of a kind wins, on the other hand, start a process. It gives you a second chance at a bigger win, as all the other non-winning symbols ‘warp’ and are potentially replaced by any other kind of fruit.
Including the winning fruit that trigger the warp, which may now turn into a 5, 6, or more, same of a kind win.
So is that where you win big you ask? Euh… no. Thats where you get maybe 2x or 5x your bet.
Calling them free spins isn’t an accurate description, but it’s as close as we are going to get to describe what is happening here.
And anyway, everyone knows the free spins is where all the good stuff happens; as you can see in the equally brilliant Birds on a Wire slot by the same slots provider.
What happens is that you get unlimited spins. As long as you get any of the same fruit that triggered these spins on screen, you keep spinning.
But instead of giving you wins during the free spins, every time you find a winning combination, the Fruit Warp slot increases your multiplier. This ultimately will multiply the triggering win.
Last long enough, and the longest multiplier we’ve seen is about 25x your win – which overall has given us over 120 times our bet. More is definitely on the cards, just depends on how much you triggered the free spins with in the first place.
Considering how this Fruit Warp slot game is dominated by just one big feature, you’d think it would be old fast.
But it really, really, doesn’t. Maybe it’s because we like it when they keep things simple, but mostly it’s because with a high return to player rate of 97%, this game is lively and the bonus comes often, making it impossible to get bored.
Like the Esqueleto Explosivo slot that came before it, this is no doubt a new favourite in the Thunderkick slots genre.

4 of a Kind Fruit Warp: Any four of a kind win triggers a second chance bonus, where all the symbols but the ones that trigger the win are 'transported' through a portal, and replaced with different symbols.
This obviously allows for either a second win, or a bigger win as the 4 of a kind turns into a 5 - 9 of a kind win.
Fruit Mode: Get a 5 of a kind, or more, win on screen, and you trigger the fruit mode.
Here you'll see a fruit warp meter at the bottom of the screen with 4 to 5 steps in between either multipliers or extra life symbols.
In total there might be 20 to 25 of these "steps".
The reason we mention them is that your original win is kept aside, and you'll get a free re-spin. Get the fruit symbol that triggered the fruit mode, and you'll move along the steps (one fruit = one step, 5 fruits = 5 steps).
If you get a win using any of the other fruit symbols, instead of getting the cash amount, you increase the multipliers on the warp meter, by either 1x to 7x more.
So, for example. A warp meter might start with a x2, x4 and x6 multiplier. But a 6 of a kind win might increase those multiplier by x4, x6, x8 multiplier.
Once you've gone past the multiplier 'step', it will no longer increase on a win, but you are now guaranteed that multiplier if you don't reach the next one.
The trick is to try and get as many wins as possible, whilst still getting at least one triggering fruit on screen so you keep moving through the meter.
Honestly, it sounds far more complicated than it is, and as you play Fruit Warp slot online, you can't help but be at the edge of your seat as you watch the screen for any progress.
We rarely walked away with less than about 10x to 20x our overall bet win, with some great big wins of over 100x on more than one occasion.
No wilds, no scatters, no second screen bonuses. Instead this Fruit Warp mobile slot is all about the wins.
Get a 4 of a kind win and warp the symbols around it. Get a 5 of a kind win, and you trigger a unique free spins round where the aim of the game is to last as long as possible, and win as many multipliers as you can.
Surprisingly lively, with some surprising wins, this is no doubt a favourite with the LuckyMobileSlots.com team.
