Fruit Shop is a bright and fun fruit slot from big-time developer NetEnt and was first released in 2013. It’s a bright, cartoonish slot featuring fruit symbols such as watermelons, lemons and cherries, although it doesn’t appear to be emulating the retro fruit slots of the past, instead putting a modern ‘spin’ on the theme.
There’s plenty to enjoy about Fruit Shop, from the game’s free spins – which come frequently – to its bright and enjoyable illustrations. It’s a game which seems to delight in taking tried and tested slot features and turning them on their heads.
Players line up fruit symbols along winning paylines in this bright slot from NetEnt. The game features 15 paylines, with five fruit symbols and five playing card symbols adorning the reels. The most lucrative symbol in Fruit Shop is the cherries, which pay out between 5x and 2000x the line bet for between two and five symbols on a payline. Other symbols include plums, lemons, oranges and watermelons, as well as more basic 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols.
There are two special features at play which make gameplay a little more interesting. The first is the game’s wild symbol, which as well as substituting for any other standard symbol on the reels, also offers a 2x multiplier to all wins featuring a Wild.
There’s also a Free Spins bonus mode, although this isn’t triggered with a scatter the way many free spins are. Instead, in Fruit Shop, bet line wins from matching fruit symbols also generate free spins. For most fruits, this is between one and five free spins for three to five matching fruit symbols, but cherries offer a slightly higher number of free spins.
During the free spins mode, all wins are also subject to a 2x multiplier, making this bonus feature even more high value.
Fruit Shop plays well on mobile devices including both iOS or Android. It’s easy to play wherever you are, and it also looks great and runs smoothly no matter what you’re playing on. Just be sure to check that your internet connection can support slot games before you play.
Fruit Shop offers players an average RTP of 96.71%, a little above the average of 96%. This means that for every £100 players spend spinning the reels in Fruit Shop, they can expect to win back around £96.71. It’s also a low-medium variance game, which means that wins come in regularly, although players looking to land a jackpot might want to look for something with higher volatility.
Fruit Shop is a funny and quirky little game which plays a little differently to most payline slots. This contributes to the slot’s uniqueness, and no doubt many players will feel drawn to this fun and simple slot time after time. It’s another winner from NetEnt.
