Relax Gaming’s seaside online slot, Blender Blitz, invites players to relax back, dangle their feet in the sand, and soak in the rays. That may sound pleasant, and on the surface, Blender Blitz is a relaxing game. Blender Blitz, however, hides a robust set of figures and features beneath its serene exterior. They can be difficult to get started, but once they do, they can lead to a guaranteed win Super Spin with only premium symbols and a multiplier of up to x500.
The peaceful veneer comes first, as players in Blender Blitz find themselves at a beach bar, ready to order a healthy blended fruit juice. At first, Blender Blitz reminded me of Fruit Shop by the Sea, but with more palm trees, sand, and seagulls. Turn up the volume to soak in the laid-back sounds of the backing track if you need even more relaxation. Blender Blitz may be a little too laid-back for some, and this isn’t the Relax Gaming we’re used to seeing – no guns, aliens, temples, trains, or pirates on this day at the beach.
Betting and Prizes
After all, this is Relax Gaming, and Blender Blitz’s very volatile math model can switch from a nice hot stone massage to that Thai slapping style and back. Users can now get their daily fruit fix on any device, with stakes ranging from 10p to £/€30 each spin. The basic purpose of the base game is to gather enough winning symbols to activate free spins, which results in a maximum RTP of 96.16 percent.
The blending is done on a 5-reel, 3-row game grid with 243 different ways to win. Three to five matching symbols land in adjacent reels starting from the leftmost side of the grid to form winning combos. Five low-paying kiwifruit, oranges, lemons, and strawberries pay 1.5x the wager, rising to 3x the stake for the mid-paying grapes, pineapples, and cherries. High-pay symbols, such as ice cubes, juice jugs, and blenders, have borders surrounding them and pay 5-25x the stake for five of a type. The wild symbol, which can appear on reels 1, 2, 3, or 4, can help in a handful of ways by substituting for any normal pay symbol.
Blender Blitz Slot Features
The cascading win technique is the first feature to discuss in Blender Blitz. Fruit Ninja style, when winning combinations develop on the reels, the symbols involved are deleted. Symbols descending from above fill in the gaps, triggering another cascade if they produce a new win. On the right side of the reels, a list of low and mid-value symbols is presented, each with its own metre. When low or mid pay symbols are used to achieve a win, the quantity of symbols used increases the respective metre. If ten of the same symbol type are gathered during a cascade sequence, it is removed from the reels for the duration of the cascades. At the start of paid spins, the metres are reset.
Instead of a fixed number of free spins, players are given five lives. When a non-winning spin happens, a life is lost; however, an extra life symbol can appear on reel 5, awarding 1-3 additional lives. Low and mid pay symbols are withdrawn from the bonus round when their metres are full, just like in the base game. When symbols are deleted this time, they are gone for the duration of the feature. By the way, the metres do not reset between free spins. If you manage to eliminate all of the game’s low and mid-paying symbols, a Super Spin is activated, assuring a winner with a multiplier of x10 to x500.
Design and Theme
Blender Blitz may start off slow, but once it gets going, it may quickly pick up speed. We saw this during one of the initial bonus round triggers, when all of the low and mid-paying symbols were removed, generating the legendary Super Spin. If my memory serves me correctly, an x10 multiplier was awarded, with a final result of 400-500x the wager.
Blender Blitz was a slow-starting game that improved as the going got better. Still, given the tone of Blinder Blitz, it could help if your ideal day off consists of fruit smoothies with buddies rather than setting off fireworks in the desert.
