But will it match up to the original? It’s time to taste this sweet treat! tradional fruit machines like the Divine Diamonds slot are all the rage these days. Fruit Shop Megaways takes this to a new turbo-charged level!
Look and Feel
The design of the game is pretty much the same, although it looks like your shop has been moved to slightly bigger and greener premises. During the base game, your ears will be treated to a jaunty little ditty music as you spin complete with birds chirping. This game is brighter than Basketball Star on Fire so wear your sunnies.
During the bonus round the tempo increases to accompany the bigger wins.
Fruit Shop Megaways Slot Game Play
Fruit Shop Megaways slot has 6 reels with 7 rows and 117,649 ways to win. Create wins by matching 3x or more icons in a row from left to right – and you can place your bets from a minimum of 0.20 up to a maximum bet of 100.00 coins per spin.
Your reel icons are made up of the stuff you’d find at your local green grocers; juicy oranges, luscious lemons, tasty watermelons, perfect plums and cheeky cherries. The 10, J, Q,& K from the playing card deck will represent the lower values.
The Fruit Shop logo is your wild symbol here, and it will land on reels 2, 3, 4 & 5. It will do the usual job of substituting for all of the other symbols and it will also double your winnings, thanks to a x2 multiplier.
Depending on the number of positions you are playing with, the reel icons can also land as stacked. To help you form more combos.
Finally, the cherry is your highest paying symbol – and will pay 12.5x your bet for 6 of these juicy critters. Even better you will only need to hit 2 of them in a row to make a win…
Free Spins and Bonuses
Say goodbye to Scatter icons cos you wont need them in this game!
Instead, the free spins are set off every time you land a winning high-value fruit combo. The number of goes you’ll be awarded will depend on how many symbols you hit – so you’ll be given 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x spins for a three, four, five, or six of-a-kind combinations. Plus, during the free spins, each win will increase the win multiplier that starts at 1x and can go as high as 10x.
Finally, you can also re-trigger the bonus by hitting wins with the low-paying symbols:
– 3x low value icon = 1 extra free spins
– 4x low value icon = 2 extra free spins
– 5x low value icon = 3 extra free spins
– 6x low value icon = 4 extra free spins.
Which is pretty darn bonza.
Fruit Shop Megaways slot is basically the same game – but with a load more win potential. And seeing as we loved the original, we couldn’t be happier. Hit that free spins bonus with the increasing multipliers and the world’s your oyster when it comes to pay-outs. Give it a whirl!
