Fruit Shop’s appearance onto the slots scene is more poignant than you’d think: It’s almost exactly 100 years ago that the first spinning reel games with fruit on them appeared during the US gambling prohibition - though no-one would have dreamed back then that they’d still be with us today.
Thankfully they did, and Net Entertainment have made a suitably fitting tribute here, bringing the game into the 21st century whilst retaining the simplicity and charm that has kept us in the thrall of these games for generations.
You can bet from 15p to £150 per spin so there’s enough action to suit all pockets, and Net have ditched any superfluous fuss such as an intro movie. It’s straight to the reels here, with a market stall design framing the reels and fun, cheeky poker symbols mixed up with the usual fruit designs.
There’s no line selection here – you simply play all 15 by default, although there are 10 bet levels with coin values ranging from 1p to an upper limit in most casinos of £1.
Once you start spinning you’ll win smaller amounts by lining up the poker symbols on the 15 winning lines, or collect larger amounts from fruit-based combinations. Land 5 of the top-scoring cherry symbol and you’ll win 2,000 coins per bet level…
The game logo symbol operates as a wild and doubles your winnings; there are also free spins - activated by any win using the fruit symbols - that award you 5 re-triggerable freebies. Free spin wins pay double, so 4 cherries and a wild symbol on a winning line during free spins wins you 2,000x2x2 coins: That’s 8,000, or £80,000 at the top bet level with con value set to £1, which compares well to your average haul on a pub fruitie…
Fruit Shop is an ideal entry level game for anyone unfamiliar with multi-line play and a wonderfully juicy blast from the past for anyone else who’s too tired for the heavy games and just wants to chill out.
