It’s that special festive time of the year, and Net Entertainment is celebrating it with the Christmas edition of their innovative 15-payline pokie known as Fruit Shop. If the winter season is yet to come, start enjoying the holiday a little earlier with this cool and cheery rehashed game that has the $20,000 worth jackpot and lots of free spins.
PLAY Fruit Shop Christmas Edition FOR FREE
If you have played Fruit Shop, you will find the reviewed game familiar because NetEnt just gave the original game a Christmas makeover without changing the paytable and bonus features. The symbols now look a bit different: fruits are encased in ice cubes and 10–A symbols look like after a heavy snowfall. The background now features a snowman, a decorated Christmas tree, gift boxes and other tiny details related to winter holidays. Feel certain that if you like the “summer” Fruit Shop, then you will most definitely like this “winter” game, too.
Bet options are the same as in the original game version: you can select from six coin denominations ($0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.50 and $1) and bet up to 10 coins per each line. That said, you have the minimum bet of $0.15 and the maximum possible bet of $150 per spin.
The five playing card symbols from 10 up to Ace award x5 to x150 for three, four or five of a kind. You will often get to see them creating combos because they are low-win symbols. Themed pictures include watermelons, oranges, lemons, plums and cherries, with the highest prize of x2000 times the line bet being for five cherries. Since the max line bet is $10, you can potentially win up to $20,000 for five cherries on a bet line.
A Fruit Shop logo is a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols in the pokie. Disappointingly, it cannot form combos by itself and it appears on the second, third and fourth reels only. Despite all these downsides, the wild doubles the winnings when replacing in a combination.
In many pokies, free spins do not occur often and you have to wait for a few dozen or even hundreds of spins before the feature begins. In Fruit Shop, free spins are triggered every time (yes… every time!) you hit matching fruit symbols on a bet line. You earn:
- 1, 2 or 5 free spins on hitting two or more cherries
- 1, 2 or 5 free spins on hitting three or more plums, lemons, watermelons or oranges.
During free spins, every winning combination awards extra free spins. This time, the matching playing card values also add 1, 2 or 5 free spins. As a result, the feature can last for a long time since every win gives a boost to the free spin counter. Furthermore, all winnings during the feature are multiplied by x2.
There is nothing revolutionary about this Christmas edition of the popular pokie. It is more a case of getting a usual gift card for Christmas as opposed to the red Ferrari you have asked Santa for. Anyway, you can benefit here from the abundance of free spin action that can bring you very big wins that you can lay aside and buy a supercar later.
