Fruits’N’Stars, the Holiday Edition, is offered by Playson as a slot machine that you can play during the winter holidays, something inspired by Christmas obviously. There will be plenty of winter and holiday related graphics inside, but there are also a lot of classic fruit symbols present, and so it’s not as interesting as I wanted it to be.
The classic side that the theme is hinting at can be seen in the game’s layout, and so you are going to have 5 active lines on a standard setup of 5 reels. The feature list is not going to give you much to work with either. Luckily, the game’s top prize makes up for any shortcomings that the slot might have in other areas, paying you up to $100,000.
Betting and Prizes
The full betting range in Fruits’N’Star: Holiday Edition will start at $0.25 and will end up at a maximum value of $100. Given the 5 active lines that we’re using, we can figure out the line bet, as being in the range of $0.05 to $20.
The relatively high line bet would explain the big payout that you can walk away with, worth up to $100,000, though the line bet is at a much more common 5,000x. The RTP is on the high side as well, though I’d still call it an average figure for a slot released in 2017. It’s announced as having a percentage of 95.72%.
Fruits’N’Stars Slot Features
The standard fruit themed slot machine will have as few features as possible, and this game is the perfect example of that sort of strategy. You don’t even get wild symbols in this game by the looks of it, the only feature present appearing to be a scatter that pays without caring if it appears on bet lines or not.
The scatter has the image of the Golden Star on it, another popular symbol in classic games. By having the symbol show up in three, four or five spots, you can count on the game paying you back your wager at a multiple of 2x, 10x or 50x. It doesn’t come close to the amount given by the top jackpot, but it might be easier to trigger.
Theme & Design
Fruits’N’Star: Holiday Edition gives you its mixed theme right from the title. You are looking at a fruit themed game, with star symbols include, which is designed to look right for the winter holidays. The winter setting means that the symbols are all getting snow on top, which makes them look slightly different, but not by much. I enjoyed the background picture more, since that’s where you see four Christmas trees decorated for the holidays, with decorations and snow on them. There are gifts spread around in the snow. The reels are also decorated, with Christmas lights at the top and the sides.
When you look at the symbols, they are all going to be classics. It starts off with the Golden Star, the only feature present inside. Next, in order of the payouts offered, from high to low, you have the Red 7s, the Watermelon, Grape, Plum, Orange, Lemon and Triple Cherries.
Fruits’N’Stars: Holiday Edition is a game that fans of the classic slots will enjoy, being their title of choice for the winter holidays.
