Visit a factory to see how jam is really made when you play this fruit-tastic slot from NetEnt!

Take a fun-filled trip to a factory setting where you get to see how jam is produced in this revamped release from NetEnt. The original Fruit Case slot arrived on the scene back in 2013 and this is new version is now fully mobile optimised and features all-new colourful HD graphics that are bound to put a big smile on anyone’s face! The fruit in this game are quite special as they all have eyes and mouths which is a little troubling considering that they get squished and crushed to be packed into glass jam jars! Let’s see what fruity goodness awaits us at the factory as we spin the reels in this slot?

Fruit Case is a 20 payline slot that includes Cascading Reels, Increasing Wild Multipliers, and Free Spins.

Special Features

The first feature to mention is that Fruit Case features Avalanche Reels. This basically means that when you land a winning combination on the reels then all winning symbols are crushed to be replaced by new symbols from above. This process continues until there are no more winning combinations on the reels. This feature can be extremely rewarding especially when you rack up a few wins in a row and can also be found other popular NetEnt slots such as Gonzo's Quest.

The Wild symbol in this slot is represented by an image displaying the words ‘Fruit Case x2’. Like most Wilds, the main job of this symbol is to substitute for all other symbols to help create winning combinations on the reels but with one special feature – it increases a multiplier value for every win that it is a part of. Initially, it starts off at 2X for the first Avalanche but can increase all the way up to 8X for 4 or more Avalanches. You can keep on eye on the current Multiplier value at the top of the reels as you play the game.

The Scatter symbol in Fruit Case is illustrated by a blender with the words ‘Free Fall’ in front of it. Land 3 or more of these symbols on the reels on the same spin to trigger the Free Falls bonus game. In this fun feature, you’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins with Free Spins winnings subject to a nice 3X Multiplier. The Avalanche and Wild Multipliers are active here too which means that every Free Spin could in theory also award an 8X Multiplier. You can also retrigger this feature by landing 3 additional Scatters to get more 10 Free Spins.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The graphics in this game are bright and colourful with a cute cartoon feel. It is a vast improvement on the original Fruit Case slot which makes it far more appealing to play. The game takes place in a light grey factory setting where the fruit is crushed and poured into glass jam jars. Symbols are wonderfully rendered onscreen and consist of a bunch of fruit such as Oranges, Pears, Lemons, and Strawberries all displaying silly faces. There are also classic A, K, Q icons which are depicted as jam jars in this slot. The animations are excellent especially when you land a winning combination as symbols get squashed to then be replaced by new symbols from the top. It’s a really neat visual touch.

There is no real music to speak of in this game apart from some light jingles and sound effects whenever you form a win on the reels.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game features 20 paylines, a very good RTP of 96.42%, and a maximum payout worth 2,400X your total bet.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Fruit Case

This slot comes from software giants NetEnt and is a much-improved update on the original game. Fruit Case features beautifully designed graphics and animations as well as a decent range of bonus features. It is extremely easy to play which is a good thing with Wild Multipliers and Avalanches triggering quite frequently on the reels. From playing this game quite a bit, I managed to increase the Wild Multiplier up to 4X but that’s as high as it went for me. The Free Falls bonus game can take a good few spins to trigger but is worth the wait as you can benefit from a nice 3X multiplier as well as retrigger even more Free Spins. It would also have been great if this game featured a catchy soundtrack but alas it only features a few jingles and simple sound effects. I found this slot to be of Medium variance so you won’t be waiting that long to land a jammy win on the reels! We should also mention that the top prize for this game is a decent 2,400X your stake which can be won in the Free Falls bonus feature. For slots with a similar Fruit theme, check out Jammin' Jars and 5 Burning Heart.
