Fruit Shop Megaways Slot Review
Fruit shop Megaways is a slot machine developed by the well-known Netent. However, you will have to wait a while before you can play it, given the release date of January 28, 2021. From that day it will be available in many online casinos, so we are preparing for you! It is a Megaways slot machine with many well-known elements (such as most Megaways variants) and a fairly simple design. We will go into this in more detail below, so keep reading!
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 96.06%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The design of Fruitshop Megaways is very simplistic with a blue sky and a green lawn. For this you see a kind of booth as far as the playing field is concerned, and this has a yellow white striped roof. That playing field consists of 6 reels like most Megaways variants, and on top you see the number of Megaways that are valid. Furthermore, you will actually find all other options at the bottom of your screen. Consider, for example, the settings, the ‘spin' button, the bet determination, and much more.
How does Fruit Shop Megaways work?
There are up to 117,649 ways to win, or Megaways. This number will only occur if all 6 reels contain the maximum number of 7 symbols. We hope that you can form beautiful combinations on the playing field. For most symbols you need the same symbol on at least the first 3 reels. All combinations are formed from the first roll anyway. The more symbols you include in your combination, the higher your prize! Furthermore, you can more easily win prizes through the bonus round. Downside is the fact that there are no further helpful features in the basic game. Choose a bet between 0.20 and 100 euros and you're good to go!
The Symbols & Payouts
We can easily divide the symbols into a few categories so that you have a clear overview:
- Starting with the basic symbols, of which there are 5. These are formed by the card symbols 10 to A, and are colored light blue.
- Next is a category with the premium symbols, or the high paying symbols. This category consists of different fruits such as watermelon, oranges, lemons, plums, and cherries. When you spin 6 of the same symbols you can win up to 12.5x your stake!
- The wild symbol can replace all other symbols, and only appears on the middle 4 reels.
Fruit Shop Megaways Bonus Round
The free spins are unlocked in a special way in this game, and not with a bonus symbol. In the basic game you get a certain number of free spins for every combination with one of the pieces of fruit. This number depends on the symbol with which you form the combination and the number with which you form it. For example, a combination with 3 symbols delivers 2 free spins and a combination with 6 symbols 5 free spins. If you are already in the bonus round, the low paying symbols also participate in this mechanism. So you can also earn free spins by forming a combination with the basic symbols. A combination of 3 now gives you 1 spin and a combination of 6 gives you 4 extra. There is also a multiplier active starting at x1 and increasing with +1 for each winning combination. The maximum multiplier is unfortunately x10.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win is estimated at more than 10,000x your stake. Furthermore, the game receives a provisional score of 3/5 stars.
The average score is mainly because there are almost no features in the game. We think the mechanism surrounding the bonus round is very original, but not sufficient for a better score. Hopefully the game will still surprise us after release!
