The fruit slot craze has been in full swing ever since the release of the original fruit based slot machines way back when. There’s been changes to the formula, remakes that add enhanced visuals and sound effects, story driven games and now a Megaways focused fruit slot game.
NetEntertainment has decided to tackle the tried and true fruit theme and add their own unique spin on it. While change is usually always good, meaningful change is what matters when it comes to the classics.
With that in mind, let’s jump in and see how the world famous developer has made the theme their own.
Theme & Symbols
As you can already tell from the title of this video slot game, the theme focuses around the traditional fruit setting that some of the classic slots pioneered.
The shop and the play grid is situated in the centre of what looks to be a rather lovely park, the sun is out and shining down, there is greenery everywhere that sways in the gentle breeze.
The audio design is incredibly laid back and relaxed, it adds nicely to the theme and general vibe that NetEnt has gone for. The song that plays in the background is upbeat and makes you feel at ease while you spin away. Sound effects aren’t intrusive and do a good job breaking up the gameplay to alert you of something.
Animations are very smooth, the reels spin effortlessly and the symbols that animate on winning spins are full of charm. There’s a nice visual effect that happens when you land bonus spins, the sun moves to the afternoon and blankets the grid in an even more relaxed feeling.
The overall presentation of this title is superb, NetEnt has created yet another visually fun looking video slot game.
Starting off with the low paying icons we have playing card values. Expect to see 10, J, Q, K and A appear quite often during your time with the game.
Next up are the high-paying symbols. These you’ll recognise from most other fruit spinners, keep an eye out for Watermelons, Oranges, Lemons, Plums and of course Cherries.
The Wild symbol will only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and can of course substitute for any other icon in the game.
