I love a good old fashioned fruit machine and Fruit Spin gives us a taste of that with a fruity themed game of colour and fun with plenty of bonus action on top.
Fruit is a popular theme for a slot of course, even in Hawaiian ones like the Aloha Slot, and this game has baskets of the stuff!
A great mix of free spins, lucky wheels and stacked symbols from NetEnt.
Look and Feel
Fruit Spin is no design classic like the Butterfly Staxx slot or Guns ‘n Roses, but I guess that is the idea- this is a back to basics traditional design powered with all the modern gizmos.
The icons are decent enough graphics based on your traditional fruity, with a few jewels thrown in for good measure.
The sounds are a series of claps and electronic bleeps which bring on the old arcade game vibe. It’s a bright and breezy game.
Fruit Spin Game Play
Fruit Spin is a four row, five reel and 40 pay-lines slot. That’s quite a few more lines than other NetEnt games such as Asgardian Stones– so that should give you a clue as to the volatility of this game.
We mark it down as low variance, so expect more frequent (but smaller) wins, but remember- nothing is guaranteed!
The high value icons are the 7 Bar icon, followed by 3 gold Bar signs, a double silver Bar sign and of course a single bronze Bar icon.
The lower payers are the bejewelled fruits including a double cherry, an orange, a raspberry, a lime and grapes.
During Fruit Spin all the standard icons of play can become stacked on the reels which means more potential winning combos for you.
The Fruit Spins’ Wild is the word “Wild” in a bright green jewel and this substitutes for all icons except the Scatter which is the word “Scatter” on a red and pink gemstone. During the free spins feature, the Wild is stacked making it 3 reels wide and high and the Scatter also appears in the base and features games as a 3×3 formation.
The main event is the free spinning Lucky Wheel. If you land a row of 3 Scatters you will trigger the Lucky Wheel feature. One row of Scatters, will start you off with one free spin but if you get 2 or 3 rows then you are awarded 6 or 9 free spins respectively.
Each Scatter secures you an extra spin on those three wheels and you take each free spin on a new wheel. These in turn could add to your bank roll or give you a free spin for each of the wheels.
To take this feature to the next level, you need to bank three pink gems to trigger 5 free spins. Each gem gives you a starting spin, and this feature can be re-triggered.
I like the fact that Fruit Spin is a hybrid between an old fashioned fruity and a more modern feature driven slot. The Free Wheel feature makes for an interesting game.
