BGaming, the in-house game studio of SOFTSWISS announced the release of one of the first online slots known to be created with AI-generated graphics. Launched on April 13, Alien Fruits joins two other AI-assisted imagery games released in April – Wild Buffalo Bonanza by NetGaming and Joker Ra from Endorphina.
Unlike the other two games, this one comes with very little background information on the development team’s interaction with the Generative AI creating the images. It’s also quite different than the other two as it presents as a chain reactor rather than a traditional slot.
Chain Reactor Game
The “grid” reel set that doesn’t actually have “reels” allows this game to appear with a screen holding 30 icons over 6 columns of 5 rows each. The top prize is 15,000x bet as well so it can pay a lot more than any of the other games in its small glass.
The narrative behind this title is one of the players joining the alien fruits on an intergalactic voyage. The simple but bright game icons including avocados, pomegranates, passion fruit, and lemons are animated as they threaten to come into play or are activated by a winning combination.
You’ll set out to find jelly letters to energize your mission.
Bonus mechanics are straightforward for this type of game with free spins and multipliers but they are also power-packed with win potential. Landing four or more scatters awards an increasing number of free spins – the symbols that trigger the free games cause the fruits to move across galaxies to escort the player into bonus mode.
The game also offers those chomping at the bit to trigger the bonus round a buy bonus feature. Changing the initial bet size will cause the price of the feature to rise.
While the graphics are bright and vibrant, there’s nothing very unique about them in terms of provenance and perhaps that is one reason BGaming didn’t rely heavily on innovative tech messaging in heralding the new release – in fact, it may have slipped by many who would be looking for just an innovation.
Huge Multipliers in the Bonus Round Spins
No matter how you arrive at the free spins, by chance or by purchasing a turn, the free spins bonus is where the biggest money is to be made.
Along the narrative line, the multiplier portal will allow coms to go on between the alien fruit and their home planet to generative multipliers ranging from 2x to 100x during the free games bonus. The most that can be won on the game is 180,000 euros. The minimum bet is €1.00 and the most that can be bet per spin is €80.00
One of the job-sharing CPOs at BGaming, Yulia Aliakseyeva said: “As a leading slots provider, we are delighted to add Alien Fruits to our portfolio of more than 100 creative titles. We are especially excited to introduce AI-generated graphics – just one example of BGaming’s innovative approach to slots development.”
