Fruity Pays is a retro-loving slot machine that has been designed to make you feel as if the game hasn’t changed since your grandparents first started playing. The symbols themselves are all classic and include Lucky 7s, bells, lemons, plums and grapes which have never gone out of style!
The only clue that something else is going on in this game are the bonus and joker symbols, which don’t exactly fit with what we’re used to. The rest of the game has a simple graphics design without any sound effects or music; bells ring joyously as flashing lights go off when you win a round.
In common with its retro looks, Fruity Pays also employs a fairly basic gameplay system. The big difference is the number of ways to win which can be as high as 243 and that’s significantly more than older games by this developer have typically had only one pay line. There is a trade-off with this mechanic in that the individual wins tend to be smaller than slots with fewer pay lines, and you can only win up to 20x your stake if five matching symbols line up.
The RTP is fairly average at 95.68%, but you’re trading a few big wins for lots of smaller ones. One positive was the betting limit, it sits really high at £/€/$200 which makes it great if your goal is higher potential winnings despite lower percentages.
The free spins round in Fruity Pays is slightly more complicated than you might be used to. Most fruit machines don’t have bonuses at all, so the fact that this game has a re-life free spins bonus makes it stand out above its peers! You only get three spins, but you also get three lives, and every winning spin re-sets the total so that you go back to having 3 lives again. As you land more symbols in the game, your multiplier increases. Three scatter earns a 2x bonus and five scatters gets an awesome 5x!
