Game of the Week – 3 Fruits Win: Double Hit
If you love fruit pokies, then you need to check out 3 Fruits Win: Double Hit. It is the latest 5-Reel, 10 payline fruit pokie from Playson but it isn’t like most fruit pokies you’ve ever played. It features the Double Hit mechanic which allows you to play two boards for the price of one. Also, the scatter feature can help you win some massive prizes. Let’s learn more about this fun game and how much you can win.
3 Fruits Win: Double Hit a Game of Fruits and Stars
3 Fruits Win: Double Hit is a fun new fruit pokie from Playson. The game isn’t like most fruit pokies you’ve played. It offers the Double Hit mechanic where you will play two 5-Reel, 5 payline boards. Each board has its unique payouts, meaning that if you hit three oranges on one board and three plums on the other board, you are paid twice.
The pay symbols for this one are simple. Cherries, plums, lemons, and oranges are your lowest paying symbols. They pay even money on 3 of a kind and 10x your bet on 5 of a kind. Cherries will pay 0.1x your bet on two of a kind.
The medium paying symbol is grapes, paying 2x your bet on three of a kind up to 20x your bet on five of a kind. The highest base game symbol is 7s. Three 7s pay 5x your bet while five of a kind pays 250x your bet.
I like this type of game in that you will do no worse than break even on any 3 of a kind winner. I would like it a bit better if there was a wild symbol available, but the scatter feature can more than make up for it.
The Star is the scatter for this game. It does not unlock any bonus features, but it does pay for three or more. The difference between this and the base game symbols is that you’re paid for the total number of stars on both reels. For example, if you hit two on the top board and one on the bottom board, you’ll get a payout for three.
Here’s a breakdown of how much you can win:
10x – 5,000x your bet
9x – 2000x your bet
8x – 500x your bet
7x – 100x your bet
6x – 40x your bet
5x – 15x your bet
4x – 5x your bet
3x – Even money on your bet
This feature hits fairly regularly, but the majority of the time it will be for three or four stars. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t win big with this.
Just as I was about to give up on my testing, I hit 8 stars. This gave me a nice 500x win. I went from being down 150 bets to up 350 bets in a single spin. Granted, I had been playing quite a while before that finally hit.
3 Fruits Win: Double Hit Awards the Patient Player
3 Fruits Win: Double Hit is a game that has a lot of potential, but you have to be a player that puts in lengthy sessions. It took me close to 200 spins to hit my big win. The RTP of this game is 95.56%, putting it right at average. However, it is high in volatility. Honestly, the RTP would probably be more like 93.5 or 94% if not for the massive scatter payouts for 8 or more.
To reduce this variance, you can play smaller stakes. This game takes bets from .20 up to $100 per spin. Again, you will need to be patient to expect this game to pay off handsomely. 3 Fruits Win: Double Hit can be found at King Johnnie Casino, Wild Card City, and most Australian online casinos offering Playson pokies.
