HOW TO PLAY JUICY FRUITS MEGAHOLD
From the moment you start playing this game, everything about it screams ‘classic slots’. It’s not really that simple mechanically, but the symbols should be quite familiar to anyone who has ever seen a slot machine before. For example, Lucky Sevens, Watermelons, Raspberries, Kiwis, Strawberries, Bells, Mangos, Oranges, Lemons, Cherries, and Limes all make an appearance as symbols of various values. The Crown is the Wild, and the Diamond is the Scatter that triggers free spins.
We’re focusing on the looks for a simple reason – the gameplay is as classic as they come as well. Your job is to hit ‘spin’ and hope to match 3 or more symbols of the same kind on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost. The base game is played on a tall 5×5 grid with 50 active paylines.
During the base game, you have only two special symbols to keep an eye out for – Wilds and Scatters. Wilds, as always, substitute any other symbol except for the Scatters. Scatters can win anywhere on the board with no regard for paylines, and hitting 3 or more triggers free spins. Pretty standard stuff here. However, it’s also worth noting that Wilds can appear in giant versions that cover multiple positions in a square. They can be 1×1, 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, or even 5×5.
Juicy Fruits Megahold Free Spins
Most of this game’s defining features in Juicy Fruits Megahold by Pragmatic Play can only be accessed through the Free Spins feature. To get to this bonus round, you will need to hit three Scatters.
Once you do, the game board will split into four grids. All of them are the same as a single base game grid, with 5 reels, 5 rows, and 50 paylines each. At the beginning of the bonus round, only one of the grids works – the one in the top left. Every time a green Scatter hits anywhere on the board, it’s collected into the next grid. Once you hit three, you unlock an additional grid, until all four are open.
Additionally, a single special Wild symbol appears on each grid. It works as normal, except that it’s always on the board and moves around it randomly with every spin.
However, a new, additional kind of Scatter appears during free spins – the blue Diamond Scatter. Again, these are collected every time they hit during a round. Once you collect three, the feature is triggered and you gain 1 additional free spin. Moreover, the roaming Wild symbol expands into a 2×2 size. This can happen multiple times, allowing the Wild to grow to 3×3, 4×4, and even 5×5.
If you want to play the fun bonus round and don’t want to wait around for luck, you can directly buy the feature for 100x the stake. Click on the ‘Buy Free Spins’ button on the left during the base game.
