Fruit Shop Video Slot Game
Fruit Shop is a 5-reel Video Slot game produced by NetEnt, featuring 15 fixed paylines. The game is part of the Smart Range that maintains NetEnt quality with a reduced download size and it can be played for real money or, if players want to shore up their confidence and build their spinning skills before spending cash, for free. When bets are placed they can be made in Euros, Pounds, US Dollars and Canadian Dollars and the coin value range is 0.01 to 1.0. Up to 10 coins can be wagered per activated payline per spin, so the betting range is between 0.01 and 150 for every reel turn. The theoretical RTP is 96.7%, and the maximum payout is 2,000 credits per line bet.
Game Style and Design
The creators of Fruit Shop have captured the classic feel of the first Fruit Slots machines, while incorporating more upbeat elements and modern Slot game features. The top of the reels is decorated covered with a typical greengrocer’s awning, and the high-value symbols are different types of fruit including Cherries, Watermelons, Oranges, Lemons and Plums. Lower-value symbols are the typical playing card letters and numbers. Some greenery adds to the feeling of a friendly local shop, and the background sounds recreate land-based Slots machines very authentically.
Special Symbols and Features
The Wild Symbol in Fruit Shop is the game’s logo, acting as a substitute for any reel icon to make up winning paylines. It’s also a Multiplier, and will double the payout for any successful combination it is a part of.
To keep things simple and in line with the uncluttered approach of the rest of the game, there are no Scatter Symbols or dedicated Bonus Rounds. Rather, the Fruit symbols lining up on activated paylines trigger Free Spins according to how many appear. For 3, 4 or 5 pieces of each Fruit 1, 2 or 5 Free Spins are awarded respectively, and 1 extra turn is given when 2 Cherries appear as well. The Free Spins can also be retriggered by further winning line-ups during the Bonus Round.
Several features of Fruit Shop can be tailored to players’ different preferences, creating a more personalised experience. Firstly, spinners can choose to activate the Skill Stop Feature to give them control of when the reels stop in every spin. With practice, which can be done in the Free Play mode at no risk, this can help them to create more successful combinations. Conversely, players who want to get more spins in can turn the AutoPlay feature on, so that the reels keep turning automatically as players get on with other things.
Other game settings that can be adjusted include having the Intro Screen and the Quick Spin Feature, which allows more spins in less time, to be turned on and off. Ambient sounds and sound effects can also be activated or deactivated, and the graphics quality can also be adjusted according to device and operating system limitations.
If players find it easier to use the Spacebar to spin they can turn this function on, and they can even review their game history to help them make future decisions. Some of these features may not be available at all online casinos, so players should check carefully by clicking on the spanner icon in the game panel and seeing what comes up.
