Fruit Shop Megaways is a beefed-up version of NetEnt’s iconic slot, Fruit Shop, and adds an extra layer of enjoyment with spectacular Megaways features. After a few years since the original part’s debut, NetEnt released a Christmas edition just in time for the 2015 holiday season, and this year, players are once again invited to visit the fruit shop, but with some improvements.
Fruit Shop Megaways is a cheerful slot game with cartoon-style yet very high-quality visuals. The reels are housed in a shop front with a bright stripy decoration above them and rich foliage on both sides. The entire design is vibrant and colourful while remaining refreshingly basic.
Fruit Shop Megaways is a slot game built with responsive design in mind, this lets players spend anywhere from 0.2 to 100 dollars every spin. This version of Fruit Shop has a lower payback rate than the original Fruit Shop. The game also, of course, features the Megaways mechanic which is the entire reason the game has been remade into this version. The increased amount of paylines can become a bit confusing for some people, but there is nothing to worry about because the game itself is completely the same in terms of playstyle. In any case, this means better prizes are now accessible. As a result, theoretically, winnings of up to 10,000x the amount on a single spin are achievable.
The game’s symbols include the standard card symbols and the royals – 10, J, Q, K, and A which are the lowest paying symbols, as well as a variety of colourful 2D fruit symbols; watermelons, lemons, oranges, plums, and cherries. These fruit symbols are beautifully reminiscent of a retro Fruit machine and also stick to the game’s theme exceptionally well. If you manage to land two, three, four, five, or six across a payline, you’ll be paid one, two, three, five, or 12.5 times your wager, respectively. The game’s logo serves as the wild symbol, appearing on the second, third, fourth, and fifth reels to assist construct winning combos by substituting for all other symbols.
The RTP of Fruit Shop Megaways is 96.06%
This game sadly only has one bonus feature, but this feature can prove very generous overall if you happen to be one of the lucky ones who gets a strong overall bonus feature. Of course, with the Wild symbol in the game you can call this a bonus in itself, as it can make winning combinations much easier as a whole, but in terms of individual bonus rounds there is one in store for you at the Fruit Shop, this bonus round is the Free Spins round.
Land any winning combination with the mid-value fruit symbols to start the free spins round, and any victory including medium and low-value symbols to increase the number of free spins. The free spins round starts with a one-time multiplier, which increases by one with each winning free spin, up to a maximum multiplier of 10.
You can assume from the name that this Megaways slot game is going to be a bright and colourful one, and upon playing the game, it definitely matches this expectation to a good standard. The game itself is very fun to play and no part of the game becomes overwhelming, meaning it can be played as an easy-going slot.
