Fruit Spin has been designed as a more classic game than most that are part of NetEnt’s collection. The game uses fruit and classic symbols on most of its positions, though with modern versions of those old graphics. It’s one of the few slot machines where I actually enjoyed seeing those very common types of icons.
Fruit Spin has a large setup, of 5x4 reels, with a total of 40 active bet lines used inside. There are no big rewards in Fruit Spin, the best one apparently reaching a value of only $3,000, but there are cool features for you to experience. Among those I would count the stacked symbols, the free spins, scatters that can have 2x2 or 3x3 positions occupied, along with wilds that can do the same. Add a Lucky Wheel feature and the game starts to look pretty good, and definitely more unique than the symbols might indicate at first.
Fruit Spin Betting and Prizes
You are using a betting system that seems standard for NetEnt, with the level of the bet that decides how many of the 1 to 10 coins you are using per line. The coin value goes from $0.01 to $1, and it’s also something you can work with. On the number of lines, the game asks you to bet on 20, even though you’re getting 40 active. You can spend anywhere between $0.20 and $200 for every spin.
On the reward side of things, the 7 Bar symbol will pay up to 300x back to you, so up to $3,000 cash. Various features available in the game can improve the odds of you getting away with multiple winning combinations or other rewards, and in fact the theoretical RTP is at 96.84%, which is very good.
The game will deliver stacked symbols both during your paid and your free spins. In the main game, you get an overlay reel which has 2x2 and 3x3 stacked versions for all regular symbols and for scatters. During free spins, that same reel gets only 3x3 scatters, 3x3 wilds, 3x3 Gold Bar, Silver Bar, Bronze Bar and Sevens.
With the appearance of a 3x3 scatter icon on the reels, even only a partial view of one, you will get from the game access to a Lucky Wheels feature. These three Lucky Wheels that you gain access to will grant you cash prizes or will trigger free spins. With one to three rows of the triggering scatter symbol visible on the reels that round, you get one to three spins on each of the three Lucky Wheels.
If you get three Free Spin symbols from the Lucky Wheels, there will be 5 free spins triggered. You collect those icons and they will be turned into Extra Spin symbols, which are used during free spins to add more rounds to the total. The free spins can get on the middle three reels special wild symbols, which occupy 3x3 positions.
Theme & Design
Fruit Spin is a pretty average kind of game, particularly if you look at the theme that it uses. Inspired by the classic fruit slots of the last century or so, it nonetheless manages to make them look good. It gives us on the reels images of the 7 Bar, the triple gold bar, the double silver bar, the single bronze bar, cherries, oranges, berries, limes and grapes. The fruits look almost like jewelry.
Fruit Spin ended up being an interesting release from NetEnt, even though such a classic theme is unusual for them. The features are unique enough to make up for any hang-ups that you might have about the topic.
