Another traditional fruit slot machine came into the gaming world as NetEnt creates an adorably designed fruit video slot that captures its classic, upbeat, and vibrant colors, Fruit Shop. As it belongs to the Smart Range family of games by NetEnt, the game offers a user-friendly interface and short loading times without sacrificing its quality and gaming experience. With Free Spins that trigger 2x multipliers, your chances of winning bigger are possible if you get a Wild symbol that pays outs 4x. So get on a fruity adventure now with Fruit Shop!
The fun at Fruit Shop starts with 3 rows, 5 reels, and 15 fixed bet line both in the main game and in Free Spins rounds. This video slot by NetEnt was released in 2011 and has a theoretic payout of 96.7%. The fruity adventure even grows bigger with the Wild substitutions awarding a 2x multiplier for the wins you accumulate. There are also Free Spins that can be triggered by any fruit symbol on a bet line and your wins can also be multiplied by 2. Furthermore, there could be more wins in Free Spins if you get a Wild symbol that awards a multiplier of 4.
Fruit Shop video slot has that traditional slot theme based on old-fashioned fruit slots. This video slot also features, of course, fruit symbols that are adorably designed. What makes this particular video slot distinct is its vibrant colors and lively graphics and animations. There is no background music incorporated in it, just the traditional fruit slot machines sound effects when spinning the reels and when you hit a winning combination. Although this particular fruit slot is not graphically astonishing, the visuals are still pleasing to the eyes. Fruit Shop lacks in many ways in terms of its graphics and audio.
Fruit Shop symbols start with, of course, the frequently seen A, J, K, Q, and 10 symbols. Like the standard, A is the highest paying with 150 coins when it appears on all reels whilst the lowest is 10 at 5 coins when it appears on 3 reels. These symbols are designed fairly generic in sky blue color in contrast with the fruit symbols. The fruit symbols are higher in value. There are cherries, plums, lemons, oranges, and watermelons. The highest paying among these fruit symbols is the cherry that rewards 2000 coins and the lowest is the watermelon that grants 15 coins.
Free Spins are triggered by any fruit symbol bet line win.
During Free Spins rounds, all bet line wins pay 2x and bet line wins with Wilds come at 4x. Any bet line win in Free Spins round grants more free spins.
The Wild symbol is, oddly, the logo of the game itself. The Wild symbol is a signage that indicates the words Fruit Shop. Like what is known to many, this Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols too. Bet line wins with the Wild symbol pay 2x.
The Fruit Shop video slot is played with 15 paylines, 10 different bet levels and 6 different coin values that range from 0.01, 0.05, 0.10 cents, 0.25, 50 cents, 1.00. The bet level can be multiplied by the coin value to know the amount per spin. The bet amount can be computed by multiplying the coin value with the bet level, thus, the minimum bet is at 0.15 and the maximum is at 150 Euros.
The paytable can be viewed by clicking on the i symbol right beside the Bet display at the lower left portion of the screen and welcomes you like a real fruit shop stall. It explains to you the values of each symbol and how the multipliers work.
There are several buttons you have to be familiar with:
Fruit Shop also follows the standard game settings well-known to all NetEnt video slots. There’s the speaker chanz where you can click to turn the sound on or off, the question mark that triggers the Help menu, and the AUTO button that enables the autoplay function and the wrench icon allows you to adjust 3 other settings: Quick Play, Intro Screen, and Spacebar to spin
Fruit Shop is available on desktops, iPhone, and iPad. The game is compatible with operating systems such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. Moreover, Fruit Shop is available on mobiles as Fruit Shop Touch.
Fruit Shop overall is pretty average. The features aren’t that exemplary, more so its graphics, although it is designed adorably. There could be other slot videos out there that follow the traditional fruit slot trend with better graphics, more paylines, and bigger wins. But if you opt for a simpler summer-themed and fruit-inspired video slot or fruit kings casino with frequently hitting Free Spins, Fruit Shop is for you.
