Multifruit 81 from Play'n GO: Slot Review - a retro slot with a joker twist!

Get in on some old school fruit machine action with this cracking game!

Intro

Physical fruit machine slots are waning in popularity these days as more and more players play online slots than ever before. To keep things retro and to give a nice wink to the past, Play’N GO decided to release this slot as a form of tribute to all the one-armed bandits, pokies, and fruit machines still going strong today. So if you want to indulge in some old-school fruit machine fun then this game might just be for you.

Multifruit 81 has 4 reels with 81 paylines and comes with Wild Multipliers and Expanding Wilds.

Special Features

The first feature to highlight is that the game features 4 reels. It is unusual as most slots feature either 3 or 5 reels and never 4 on their own.

The Wild symbol is illustrated by a smiling joker with a red and blue jester hat. It substitutes for all other symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. The Wild symbol multiplies your win by two when 2 Wilds help to form a win along the reels. If you are lucky enough to land 3 Wilds on a winning payway then your win is boosted with a fantastic 5X multiplier! When you land 4 Wilds, you’ll be awarded a wonderful 500X your total bet.

As you play the game, you’ll notice that one of the reels is randomly selected and highlighted for each spin. If a Wild symbol lands on a highlighted reel then it will expand to cover the entire reel, replacing all other symbols on the reel and this will help to boost your wins by some margin.

Theme and Graphics

The presentation of the game is superb as it is filled with bright clean colours and set against a background of bright green neon lights. The symbols are wonderfully detailed and consist of a variety of fruit such as blueberries, lemons, oranges, and cherries. The animations are quite interesting as symbols are covered by a flickering golden frame and stars twinkle in the background whenever you land a win on the reels.

The music features a light techno soundtrack. It complements the retro theme of the game really well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 81 paylines, a fantastic RTP of 96.55%, and a nice jackpot of 2,520X your initial stake.

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 Multifruit 81

Play’n GO made this game and it is really good fun to play. The graphics are colourful and it is very easy to play. It is quite interesting to spin with 4 reels and the two features of the game help to elevate this slot above other simpler games. I was able to trigger the Expanding Wild feature quite regularly while playing. I must admit it is surprising that it does not feature the chance to win any Free Spins at all. It is also worth highlighting that this game is highly volatile so don’t expect to a land a big win right away but when you do win big then the rewards can be as high as a 2,520X payout on every single spin!
