Fruit Fiesta Casino Progressive HitBy: Joe Valentino, Wednesday September 16th 2009

The progressive jackpot of the Microgaming online slot game Fruit Fiesta has been hit. In itself this is a fairly routine event because the jackpot hits on average every nine days. However the recent occurrence is newsworthy for two reasons. The progressive jackpot has been hit thrice in two consecutive days. The first of the three hits was the highest hit recorded in the last six months.
Yesterday Fruit Fiesta was hit for $55,395. The previous highest hit in the last half year was at $42,302 about four months ago. The average payout for this jackpot has been just over $21,000. The jackpot was reset and immediately hit again today, not once but twice. The two hits came within an hour of each other. Understandably these hits were for much lower amounts.
Actually the Fruit Fiesta online slot game has two versions, both of which are networked to the same progressive jackpot. One version is a classic slot game with three reels and three paylines. The other is a video slot game that has five reels and fifteen paylines. Both the games have been so structured that they required a wager of $0.75 per spin for hitting the progressive jackpot. Therefore the odds of winning are the same whichever game is played. The classic slot version of Fruit Fiesta requires a wager of three coins of $0.25 each, whereas the video slot version requires a wager of 15 coins of $0.05 each. The progressive jackpot is hit when all symbols in an enabled payline are Fruit Fiesta logo symbols. In the classic slot version the enabled payline has to be the third payline and in the video slot version the enabled payline has to be the 15th payline for the progressive jackpot to be won. If all the symbols are the Fruit Fiesta logo symbols or any other enabled payline then the payout is a fixed jackpot of 9000 coins.
Fruit Fiesta is a cheerful slot game with symbols of bright and colorful fruits. These symbols are reminiscent of the symbols prevalent in the original electromechanical land-based slot machines. Other symbols of that time such as the Liberty Bell and the triple bar logo are also present.
September 16, 2009 is a good day for Microgaming progressive jackpot online slots. Another popular slot game has hit the progressive jackpot today. This is the LotsaLoot online slot game. It has hit for $30,980, which is again the highest amount recorded in recent times.
