At one time, you couldn’t move for fruit machines. Almost every game in the amusement arcades and pubs/clubs up and down the country were full of fruit symbols. There you’d be in a greasy café eating your bacon and sausages and the fruit in the slot games was the only sign of anything reasonably healthy to eat.
Novomatic have already released the ‘Plenty of Fruit 20’ slot game and this updated version is a lot better. As with the previous game, this slot has a total of five reels and 20 pay-lines on which to hopefully get plenty of winning combinations. How is it an improvement on its predecessor? A simple look at the striking colours and graphics of the game shows you the massive improvement.
Responsible gambling is very important and it’s not all about how much you stake. It’s a good idea to keep a record of how long you play for and your statistics. Before you start this game, you need to fill in the Reality Check Interval. You set a time, say 20 minutes and after that elapses the game is suspended and a box comes up showing you how you are getting on. Then you have the option to either stop playing or continue. This is a good tool and it’s important to take heed of the figures presented to you.
Why is it hot? Well that’s down to the fact that the symbols are on fire and not just the fruit. Symbols are the usual collection of watermelons, lemons, oranges, plums, and cherries and then we get the blazing bells. Those flames do mean you have just had a winning combination so there should definitely be a big smile on your face. The whole look of the game is impressive with the flaming red backdrop bound to get you in the mood to play this game right from the off. That includes seeing the game title lit up above the reels, it all makes for a much more enjoyable playing experience.
Those 20 pay-lines are a fixed amount as is the case in the initial game. That means you don’t have to be sorting out how many pay-lines to activate on each of the spins. It is important to set your stake though. That’s easy to do and the key aim is to set a figure that you can easily live without just in case your luck isn’t in. The minimum cost of playing the game is 0.40 and the maximum 100. The red 7 is the wild symbol and can sub for other symbols to get you some wins but not the star which is the scatter. The star pays out the best win with 10,000 coins for five anywhere on the reels.
If you want to know more about how this game plays, then you need to pay a trip to the paytable. That has lots of information about the game including how much the winning combinations pay out. It also has details about the gamble feature, the wild and the scatter but no explanation as to why the symbols catch fire and what the views of health and safety are about this strange occurrence. Have some free games too and that will show you how everything works without having to pay anything for the privilege.
When you get a win there’s the chance to increase it. That’s because this is another of the Novomatic slot games that possesses a gamble feature. The problem with this game is that there isn’t a free spins or pick ‘em game. Rather than just continually spinning the reels this gamble feature is the only bit of light relief, so you are probably going to be tempted by it a bit more than usual. It’s the usual card game with the requirement to correctly guess the colour of the next card. Get it right and you double your win but make the wrong choice and you lose your win, so be wary of this feature.
You won’t be seeing any fruit or bells on fire but ‘Plenty on Twenty,’ also from Novomatic has similar gameplay to this. Twenty pay-lines, stacked wilds, and a gamble feature on offer there. If you do fancy seeing some more burning symbols then try the Novomatic game ‘Fruits on Fire’ where the fruit ends up being flambéed but gives players the chance to get winning combinations thanks to wild and scatter symbols and the chance to double wins.
It’s not the most complex game out there and ideal for those of you just starting out to play slot games. It has a great look to it and there are plenty of chances to get some good wins. Sadly, there’s no bonus game but make that have you using the gamble feature too much.
