Enjoy a fruity reel session for the holiday season on the slot from NetEnt. Fruit Shop Christmas Edition is the redesigned Fruit Shop slot and comes now with wintery graphics but has kept the same pay mechanics and features. Wild substitutions with an x2 multiplier and a free spins round triggered by any winning fruit symbol combination can lead to wins of up to 1,066 times your bet.
Fruit Shop Christmas Edition and its Asian variant Sweet Honey Fruity are video slots with five reels, three rows and 15 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five symbols on a line from left to right only. Available on desktop or mobile, you can bet from 0.15 to 150 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.70.
The game has been given a makeover for the holiday season. Christmas tree and snowman flank the reels that are now ornamented with a set of tree lights. The bottom as well as the slot logo are covered in snow while the premium symbols appear in an ice block. The rudimentary soundtrack has been kept from the original.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 3.33x to 10x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are complemented by melons, oranges, lemons, plums and cherries. Hit five on a line to win 13.33x to 133.33x your stake. The slot logo is the wild symbol, appearing on reel two, three and four only. It will substitute for any pay symbol and also multiply by x2 any win where it is part of the combo.
The original Fruit Shop slot dates back to a time where rather simple games with a free spins round were the norm, and that has not changed on its younger sibling. NetEnt gave the original and the Christmas version a new twist in that the bonus feature is triggered by a winning combo with premium symbols instead of the usual scatters. The number of free spins the game awards initially depends on what winning combination you hit.
During the free spins, all wins are multiplied by x2 while those containing a wild symbol are multiplied by x4. Plus, any winning combination including card royals will trigger additional free spins with the same ratio as for the initial trigger. The round ends when you run out of free spins.
Fruit Shop Christmas Edition is the perfect game to build on your balance as you never know when the free spins are going to come into play but they do trigger rather frequently. They don’t always lead to big wins but at least keep things interesting and suspenseful as the big hit might roll in on any spin, just perfect for Christmas.
