SlotBeats ‘pops’ back to the 90s to grant AvatarUX SOTW


Our Slot of the Week award has ‘popped’ into the hands of AvatarUX for the launch of its 90s-themed sequel title, CherryPop Deluxe.

With an RTP of 95.96 per cent, and a High volatility implemented within the game, this 5×3, 243 to 118,098-payline video slot also comes with a maximum win potential of up to x20,000 the bet.

“We return to one of our most famous titles with our latest release, as we look to bring a bigger, bolder return to players,” remarked Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX.

“Our PopWins games have gone from strength to strength and CherryPop Deluxe packs in plenty of paylines, huge win potential, and lots of added extras for fans to get stuck in with.”

Symbols in this game include six classic A-9 royals, which offer multiplier values ranging from x1.2 to x1.6 the bet for combinations of five-of-a-kind. 

These are topped by grapes, watermelons, oranges, horseshoes, four-leaf-clovers, bells, diamonds and cherries, paying out x2.5 to x15 the bet for five-of-a-kind.

Incorporating a PopWins mechanic, a free spins bonus with three modes, multipliers, a gamble wheel, a buy bonus and a buy bonus max, the first sees each winning icon pop and be replaced by two symbols, increasing the reel height. This is repeated as long as there are more wins. The reels can be expanded to six symbols tall in the base game and up to nine symbols tall in the free spins mode. 

Should players increase the reels to six symbols high in the base game, they’ll trigger the free spins bonus. There are three free spins modes: level one, with five to eight spins; level two, with eight to 10 spins; and level three, with 10 to 12 spins. 

The free spins start with an x2 multiplier and landing consecutive wins in the pop-round increases the multiplier by one after the wins are paid. Fully unlocking the reels gives an immediate x4 multiplier and an extra x4 for every win in that pop-round. In addition, fully unlocking the reels will grant two extra spins.

Moreover, before playing free spins, players will be able to increase the number of paylines and spins awarded by spinning the gamble wheel. Losing the gamble, however, will take players back to the base game without playing the free spins.

Lastly, players can buy the free spin mode for x75 the bet with the buy the bonus option. Additionally, the extended free spin mode can be purchased with higher possible rewards for x300 the bet.
