PapayaPop slot review (AvatarUX)

PapayaPop is AvatarUX’s seventh PopWins slot. And again, it scores high marks. I continue to love slots with the PopWins mechanic. This slot differs from the other ones, though, as the mathematical model is more suited for the players seeking less of a risk. The previous slots were most known for their brutal win potential.

PapayaPop (AvatarUX) – a PopWins slot with less brutal volatility

The maximum payout of some of the slots is beyond borders. Take, for example, PopRocks PopWins, CherryPop PopWinsBountyPop PopWins or HippoPop PopWins with an insane 72118x, 56386x, 55000x and 48150x the bet.

This slot has a maximum win of 10542x the bet, which is more modest. And rightfully so, as the lovely PopWins mechanic should also be available for players seeking less volatility and less risk.


Number of paylines: Up to 15,552 win ways in the main game and 118,098 win ways in the free spins

RTP and variance: 96.00%, Medium to High variance

Maximum win: 10,542x the bet or  $€1.05 million

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€100

Bonus features: Free spins, Buy a Bonus feature

Casino Hipster verdict: Hot. The art deco style looks stunning, and the gameplay is excellent, thanks to the PopWins mechanic.

Gameplay and Features

PapayaPop has 5 reels with 3 symbols each at the start, just like the other PopWins slots.

It works with the PopWins mechanic, which is pretty straightforward: a winning symbol explodes (or “pops”), and two new symbols (instead of one) come in its place in the next free re-spin.

It allows the reels to expand up to 6 symbols in the main game.

The PopWins feature works with the win all ways mechanic, and you can win both ways (therefore from left to right and also from right to left).

If all reels get the maximum height (6-high), you’ll land 15,552 win ways (calculated as 2x6x6x6x6x6=15,552) in the base game.

The Super High symbol is the Gold Papaya, followed by the Gold Pineapple, Dragon Fruit, Passion Fruit, Fig, Guava, Star Fruit as the High-paying symbols.

I miss the durian fruit, the king of fruits, and the one with the most penetrant smell you can imagine, but it tastes like heaven!

The lows are the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

How do you win the free spins?

You trigger the free spins if you manage to get all reels at 6-high in the main game. Alternatively, you make use of AvatarUX’s Bonus Buy feature. It costs 75x the initial bet.

You start with 3 free spins, but every time you get a win, the Free Spins counter resets at 3. So the free spins bonus game only ends if you fail to win three consecutive times.

The total multiplier is x2, and all reels are 3-high (486 ways to win) at the start.

With the Gamble Wheel, it’s possible to get a better starting position. You can have a 5x multiplier and over 6250 win ways (all reels at 5-high).

The free spins

The two most important advantages of free spins are:

  • The reels height can be as high as 9 symbols (9-high reels), thereby getting you up to 118,098 ways to win!
  • You benefit from an increasing total multiplier, which gets a +1 increment after each win

PapayaPop slot: the payout rate (RTP) is 96.0%

The Return to Player of PapayaPop is 96.0%, which is slightly lower than the RTP of the other AvatarUX PopWins slots.

PapayaPop slot: the variance (volatility) is medium to high

As I said in the introduction, the slot variance is medium-high and lower than the variance of the other PopWins slots.

I’m glad to see that this lovely feature is also available for players seeking less risk. Beware, though, that it’s still higher than average.

Pros en Cons


  • The art deco style slot looks wonderful
