243 Crystal Fruits is a classic game played on five reels and three rows. The base game offers five pay-lines, but the pay-lines expand when you activate the wild symbol. The reels are set against a blue background, and the graphics are relatively simple, which is what you'd expect from a video slot inspired by the more classic games. Since there are only five lines, there are only a few ways you can form winning combinations.
The slot still offers the standard gameplay, requiring you to spin the reels and match three or more symbols on any of the five pay-lines, anywhere on the reels. The betting range of 243 Crystal Fruits stands between €0.50 and €100, and you can always decide to click on the Bet Max button if you like high roller bets.
The autoplay option can automatically spin the reels for you five to a hundred times. This is a useful feature since the slot can be played on mobile devices.
All the symbols on the reels of the slot are shiny fruits and crystals. They all offer a wide range of payouts ranging from 1x your stake to 40x. The wild symbol does not offer any payouts, but it triggers the 243 Crystal Fruits bonus respin feature and expands the lines to 243.
The highest paying symbol is the 7, which offers 40x your stake when you land five of a kind on a pay-line. It also offers rewards of 20x and 10x your stake for hitting four and three across the reels. With the maximum bet at €100, players can win up to €4,000 in the base game if they can land five lucky 7s.
Next is the watermelon symbol, which will reward you with 24x your stake for landing five of a kind on any of the pay-lines. If you can land three or four watermelons on the reels, you will receive 12x or 6x your stake, respectively.
The grapes and kiwi fruits offer 16x, 8x, or 4x your bet for hitting five, four, or three of a kind on the pay-lines. Next is the orange and plum, which rewards players with 4x, 3x, and 2x their stake for combinations of five, four, or three. Lastly, the lemons and cherries pay out 3x, 2x, and 1x your stake for five, four, or three of a kind.
The major 243 Crystal Fruits bonus offer is the wild, which is represented by a crystal. It can replace all the symbols on the reels, and it only lands on the second, third, and fourth reels. This can help you make winning combinations faster.
This slot's wild symbol also triggers the 243 respins feature, which is the main highlight of this slot. In this bonus, you have the dropdown feature. Any winning combination you make with the wild will disappear, and more symbols will drop into the reels. If you’re lucky, these can lead to more winning combinations.
Then, the paylines will expand to 243, and the respins will kick in. The dropdown feature also occurs during the respins. As you get respins, you also get multipliers from 1x to 5x. The respins will keep on going until you stop making combinations, or your multiplier gets to 5x. Since there are 243 ways to win, you have a better chance of winning.
Unfortunately, there are no 243 Crystal Fruits free spins. But, there is a gamble feature that kicks in after every win. It gives you the chance to double your wins as many times as you want.
The 243 Crystal Fruits RTP stands at 96.55%, which is slightly above average compared to most video slots. The RTP offers a theoretical payback of €96.55 with every €100 you bet. It also offers medium-volatility, so don't expect a streak of wins or massive wins at once when playing this slot.
