Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition Mobile Slot Review
Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition, is a new title from Net Entertainment, one of the leading providers of online Casino and Video Slot games around today, and it’s a Christmas-version of the already popular “Fruit Shop” title, released a couple of years back.
The Christmas edition is very similar to the original with players able to stake between 15p to £150 a spin, the only real differences being the design, sound, and general “look and feel” of the game.
Now while the game’s available to play on desktop computers, it’s the mobile version of Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition that’s really standing out to Slots4Play, and that’s because it’s built on HTML technology, meaning ALL mobile devices can run it just fine!
While it’s optimised for Safari, non-iOS users will be able to play the game just fine, and Android, Blackberry, and Windows phone and tablet users can enjoy the game without any hassle or commotion!
The only thing worth remembering, is that to ensure you enjoy a seamless and interrupt-free experience, you’ll want to try and play whilst using a WIFI or 4G connection, as opposed to a 3G connection.
That’s purely to make sure the game runs as smoothly as possible, and is by no means a requirement – just a recommendation.
While - like the original “Fruit Shop” Video Slot Game – there’s no bonus round, per se, you will find a free-spins bonus, although it acts a little differently from most other Video Slot games you’ve probably played before.
Each winning pay-line – which will always be fruit (there’s no traditional playing-card symbols, including 10, J, Q, K, and A) awards free-spins, and below, you’ll see a chart from onlineslotsguru.co.uk, which demonstrates the free-spins structure:
Watermelon – 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line wins 1, 2 or 5 free spins
Orange – 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line wins 1, 2 or 5 free spins
Lemon – 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line wins 1, 2 or 5 free spins
Plum – 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line wins 1, 2 or 5 free spins
Cherry – 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line wins 1, 1, 2 or 5 free spins.
All wins during the free-spins enjoy a 2X multiplier, and if you manage to land the fruit again during the free-spins, you’ll re-trigger the bonus, and enjoy the same number of free-spins over again!
Pros The regular free-spins make playing pretty cool, as you’re not waiting around for hours on end for bonuses to land!
Cons Original Fruit Shop players may find the Christmas edition a bit over the top.
