Fruit Shop Slot Overview
Whenever we’re in the mood for something sweet and tasty, fruit isn’t that far away from our hands. Watermelons, oranges, plums, lemons and cherries, all delightful treats that can do for a quick snack. Well, lemons aside, you might need a bit of sugar to eat that one! Regardless, at NetEnt’s Fruit Shop slot, these are the fruits you’ll be spending lots of time with, so you better get used to them. This is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot that offers gamblers small multipliers with their Wilds, and a dynamic free spins bonus that foregoes Scatters in favour of matching up various fruits in a winning combination to decide how many free spins you’ll be rewarded.
Short and Sweet
Usually, fruity snacks like these don’t take a lot of time to eat. But this time around, you’ll want to stick around for a while, to drink in the neat sights that NetEnt’s artistic team made for you, but also because it pays to stick around for a while with Fruit Shop. Much like many of the recent releases from the developers, it boasts a low to medium variance, with some chances to break the chains and score big. This will mostly come through the free spins special feature, as otherwise, you’ll be looking at a maximum win of 133x your wager for a five-of-a-kind cherry win, which is bound to be a rarity.
You can play the game from $0.15 up to $150, which ought to please low and high-end gamblers, while the myriad of options in the middle will appease the rest. That said, odds are high rollers won’t find much of a thrill with Fruit Shop. It isn’t bad, but it certainly doesn’t cater that well for oversized wins after you sink a lot of money into it. It’s undoubtedly fun to play, especially after free spins chain off into one another, but even that ended for us with a win that was 68x our wager, and a slot that obviously decided we could use some time off with a lot of dead spins and minimal wins as it ate through our profit.
Ripe for the taking
So, the special features that are on offer are rather tame. Wilds don’t have a cash win, which feels out of place given the fact there’s just one more bonus available to the player. Still, to make up for this, if the Wild pops up in any winning combination, it doubles that win.
This 2x multiplier is also present in free spins. Rather than having them be activated with Scatters, NetEnt decided to use the fruit itself to line things up. To start things off, you need at least a three-of-a-kind fruit win, except for cherries, which can reward a single free spin for just two. If you get more fruit in a single win, it means more free spins, too, so four-of-a-kind wins will deliver two extra turns, and five-of-a-kind reward five.
After the special feature is active, however, the requirements relax, and you need a single fruit to be at least present as part of a winning combination. This means that now smaller paying symbols that aren’t fruit can also be part of a winning combination and reward extra turns, which means maintaining the bonus is somewhat easier than triggering it.
So it would be disingenuous to say that Fruit Shop slot isn’t fun to play. The simplicity of it is fun, and it doesn’t take long to jump into it and enjoy everything it has to offer. On the other hand, if you’re looking for some more solid wins, we’re afraid NetEnt isn’t geared to provide for you here. Still, if you’re looking for something to spend an hour or two on and know when to cash in your chips, it can be a delightful treat.
