Embark on another fruity adventure in this new Pop-series release from Yggdrasil Gaming. Explore the island and catch big money as you enjoy yourself wishing for the summer. This game is a five-reel one-armed bandit with 486 ways to win, courtesy of the pay-both-ways mechanic. It is a highly volatile slot with 118,098 paylines and an average RTP of 96%. It sports fantastic graphics and a jazzy soundtrack that contributes to the summer feeling.
PapayaPop may not be too generous when it comes to payouts, but it offers numerous surprises. They come in the form of a gamble wheel, extra premium symbols, expanding reels and unlimited free spins. Progressive multipliers can lead you to the maximum win of 10,542x your stake. Wins come your way approximately on every 4.5 spins, allowing you to expand the grid and score more.
Stylized royals (9-A) are the low-pay symbols, granting you 1.2x-1.6x your bet for a five-of-a-kind. A collection of exotic fruits constitutes the premium symbols, including kiwanos, mangosteens, figs, starfruits, durians, dragon fruit and pineapples. They get you 2.5x-8x your stake if you land five of them. Golden Papaya is an extra premium symbol that doesn’t land in the base game, but it can award you 15x the stake. The award comes in the bonus round if you manage to string five of them together. The game, unfortunately, doesn’t offer any Wilds nor Scatter symbols.
How to Play
You can wager various amounts of money, from $0.2 to $100, and it is possible to set the number of autospins in the game menu. The autoplay function allows you 10-1000 autospins with other adjustable parameters.
Land three to five matching icons on adjacent reels horizontally to collect a win. A five-of-a-kind win is truly paid both ways, from left to right and vice versa. Using the Bonus Buy feature won’t boost RTP.
Strategy & Tips
The core feature of the game is the PopWins mechanic, employing the pay-both-ways system. The icons from the winning combo will disappear, with two new symbols replacing them. The grid expands and increases the winning ways on every spin. The process continues until there are no more winning combos. When the grid fully expands, single icons will replace the winning symbols.
If you manage to expand the grid completely on a single spin with all reels glowing, you trigger the Unlimited Free Spins bonus. It starts with an x2 Multiplier, and it is hit roughly once in every 200 spins. It ends only when you hit three strikes without winning. However, before the Bonus round, the Gamble Wheel gives you a chance to improve your starting position regarding win Multiplier and configuration. If you land on an empty segment, it will return you to the base game instantly. If you hit less than the maximum values, you will get another chance.
PapayaPop is fully optimized for mobile phones, tablets and desktops. Enjoy yourself wherever you are and whenever you want, winning big in the process.
