When the most wonderful time of the year is upon us, there’s nothing we enjoy better than nice roaring fires, mugs of hot chocolate and our favourite casino entertainment. Prior to 2015, we were sad to say that NetEnt’s Christmas offerings were a little on the light side – with few slot games tailor made for the December holiday season.
However, that has now all changed due to the release of the Christmas Edition of Fruit Shop. It is one of two Xmas reworks alongside the Flowers Christmas Edition slot, as snowmen and icicles join the Wild Substitutions and free spins to give this classic title an end-of-year makeover.
Read on for the full Fruit Shop Christmas Edition review, and don’t forget to sample this feel-good title using the demo above!
As you go to compare the original Fruit Shop slot to its Christmas Edition counterpart, the most glaring difference is the upgraded graphics and interface. The green buttons have been replaced with a frosty light blue to represent the cold weather, with Christmas decorations surrounding the reels.
The same classic fruit machine symbols have been employed, but it looks as though they’ve encountered a touch of frost due to snow hanging off the edges. While we’d have enjoyed a nice Christmassy soundtrack to accompany the spinning reel sound effects in the main game, the polished artwork really manages to hit that festive feeling.
The special features within this Xmas Fruit Shop casino game are rather enticing too, but here’s a bit of slot mechanic information before we get ahead of ourselves:
|Fruit Shop Christmas Edition's RTP is 96.70%|
|5 reels, 3 rows with 15 fixed bet lines.|
|Wild Substitutions and Free Spins Round.|
As there’s nothing too taxing about playing this slot, many of you will be able to dive right into the action. However, just in case you’re new to the online casino world, or you fancy a little NetEnt refresher, let us explain the Fruit Shop Christmas Edition special slot features.
There’s nowhere else to start but the Fruit Spin Christmas Edition free spins bonus round. While other titles require specific symbols to land in a particular way, there’s nothing confusing here.
To trigger free spins in the Fruit Shop Christmas special, all that’s required is a fruit symbol to be included within any bet line win. Yep, it’s as simple as that!
Once this has happened, all bet line wins will be doubled. However, if one of those includes a special Wild symbol (see below), then you can expect them to be quadrupled instead. Throw in some fast-paced backing music, and you can really feel the intensity increasing! Finally, any bet line win activates another free spin – so the round lasts as long as your wins.
Once you’ve tried your hand at a few rounds, you’ll notice the special Fruit Spin symbol which appears in a picture frame. The concept of this symbol is clear – it will substitute for any other symbol to try and help you either land winning combinations or improve them. In the main game (not free spins round), all bet line wins with a Wild pay double.
When wagering real money on the Christmas Fruit Shop game by NetEnt, you’ll be able to choose between 1 - 10 bet levels. Combined with coin values ranging from 0.01 – 1, the minimum bet is €0.15 and the maximum bet is €150.
The default maximum payout while enjoying Fruit Shop Christmas Edition is €80,000 / 80,000 coins on a single bet line.
