Fruit Shop from NetEnt: Slot Review - a slot game with a fruity difference

GamingRevolution tested one of NetEnt's most unusual slot games. It's called Fruit Shop, and in contrast to many other online slots on the market, this game offers an unusual free spins feature.

As players have come to expect from NetEnt, the game never lags and all the typical features, including the paytable, are prominently displayed.

Special Features

This NetEnt slot game is, however, a little different to others by the same provider. The free spins feature is not exclusive to a certain symbol. Many of the colourful, and well-designed, fruit symbols, can get players free spins. The watermelon gets players 1,2 or 5 free spins, depending on how many can be found on a single payline. The very same principle applies to oranges, lemons, plums and cherries. Sounds juicy? It gets truly sweet with the Fruit Shop logo, which acts not only as a wild but also as a multiplier, doubling the win amount. If you get this wild symbol, winnings will be multiplied by four.

Some may find these features simple; they undoubtedly are. Yet, given that the free spins feature works different to how it usually does, it is precisely this simplicity that excites.

Theme and Graphics

Upon opening Fruit Shop, a 5-reel slot game by Net Entertainment, a simple screen greets players. A sky-blue background borders off the slot machine, which is ensnared by healthy-looking leaves, supposedly (and that is me, judging by the name of the game) belonging to some ripe fruit. The main screen has a bright yellow and white striped marquee and adds wonderfully to the fruit stall theme of this slot game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Furthermore, players don’t even have to choose paylines. A player is always assigned to all 15 paylines. The bets start at €0.15 per spin and go up to €150. The payouts in Fruit Shop aren’t gigantic. There is neither a jackpot nor a bonus game, this means that you may want to consider to prolong your gameplay for as long as possible. The Net Entertainment slot is ideal for this type of gaming as it offers solid and regular surprises. With good graphics that are a feast for the eyes, Fruit Shop lifts players spirits for hours on end.

Our Verdict on Fruit Shop

NetEnt has created a great fusion between modern technology and classic fruit machine design. Bridging both has been attempted by many before, but never executed so well as by NetEnt. Instead of attempting to change the design of these casino fruit symbols, the software provider has decided to keep the classic design. Yet, the graphics have been adapted to suit the 21st century and are as sleek as can be.
