A throwback to the Art Deco era with straight lines, lots of gold, and bright lights, PapayaPop takes players on a night out, so be sure to dress to the nines.
The design, theme and details are incredibly smooth, and the glow of the graphics seems to jump off the screen. We can see a 5×3 grid with a neon pink and gold outline. Behind the grid is a plain black screen with 1920s design patterns making their way across the screen.
We can see the tips of palms on the bottom corners, and piles of golden coins can make an appearance after a big win. PapayaPop is incredibly beautiful and very luxurious and chic. However, none of that really matters if players have no chance at high wins. Let’s see what the details look like for the game.
For a regular-sized grid, PapayaPop offers players a ton of paylines, from 486 to 118,098. With these numbers, we can’t help but expect some pretty staggering wins. The max payout isn’t bad, with 10,542x your initial stake, but we do wish it could have been a bit higher considering there are over 100,000 paylines potentially.
The betting range is from 0.20 to 100, which is also pretty common. To reach the max win, you need to bet the highest 100. The RTP (return to player) is exactly at 96%, not a bit more or less, with a hit frequency of 22%.

PapayaPop offers big wins, so it’s no surprise that it ranks high on the volatility scale. Things aren’t looking amazing thus far, but let’s see if the features can make even things out.
PapayaPop offers Pop Wins, which can expand your grid. What happens is a winning combo on a reel will trigger the expansion and remove the winning combo making way for more symbols. The free spins in PapayaPop aren’t triggered by scatters as we are normally used to, but instead, you need to extend the grid to its full size.
You can keep spinning as long as you keep landing winning combos. You have three strikes and get one taken off each time you have a non-winning spin. It seems tough to keep it going, but not if you know that each winning combo will reset your strikes back to 3. During this feature, you can also get 2x multipliers on all your winnings plus another 1x added on for each round.
After the bonus round, the grid can now be expanded up to 9 reels and offer you the most paylines as possible. Then there is the bonus in PapayaPop, in which you can buy the free spins. You have to pay 75x your stake, but, of course, you can choose to wait and activate it on your own.
PapayaPop is capable of producing high wins and has a beautiful theme design. It relies a lot on the Pop Wins feature, but we do hope that the wins could have been higher considering the number of active paylines that’s possible.

We also understand that the wins are high, which is also what leads to the volatility rating on the high end of the scale as well, but the developers could have balanced it out with a slightly higher RTP. This is especially because the hit frequency is only at 22%.
