UK players probably have a closer affinity with fruit machines and related slots than just about any other kinds of players, so it is always of particular interest when one of the major developers out there decides to go with a fruity theme on the reels once again. That counts double for NetEnt, as they have released some of the best fruit-themed slots that we have ever had the pleasure of playing in recent times and Fruit Spin looks set to be another great addition to the range, particularly due to the classic nature of the symbols.
Before getting into this review, it is worth pointing out that this game will be a Mr Green exclusive until December 2017 so if you are reading this before then, that will be your only option. After that date, the chances are that Fruit Spin will be live at Casumo and all of the other leading NetEnt gaming brands out there.
What to Expect
Part of the beauty of NetEnt’s fruit slot range is the fact that players can never be entirely sure of what to expect on the reels. We had the character action of Fruit Case and the casual innovation of Fruit Shop, but Fruit Spin takes a different approach all over again. Indeed, many of the symbols will be familiar to pub players on this one, thanks to the inclusion of cherries, bars and lucky 7s. However, this is by no means a classic slot in the conventional sense, not least because of the inclusion of four rows of symbols on the board and a generous forty win lines to go with them. A large, green wild gem will help players to complete these combinations as a wild card and many of the icons can land in stacks too, making wins even easier to come by on this board.
The game also makes use of block symbols to go with the stacked ones. In addition to being three symbols high, they are three symbols wide too, effectively covering nine symbol positions at the same time. This applies to the scatter symbol too, and landing at least one row of the block will trigger the wheel-based bonus round. There are three wheels, and you get a spin for each based on the number of rows of the scatter block that landed in view. There are instant prizes to be won, and also red gems on a couple of segments. Collecting three red gems will ensure that players receive five free spins, and every further red gem collected after this point will boost the total number of spins by one. Even if you do not do too well with the initial round, you can still trigger more spins internally by landing additional scatters and you do not need to worry about the wheel bonus for this either.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
There are not many wheel of fortune bonuses within the NetEnt range so they are always nice to see, and the rewards on offer on this game are supremely decent indeed. The free spins could possibly do with being more consistent as we entered the feature several times during this review and had to settle for cash on a number of occasions. However, the feature triggers often enough thanks to the sheer size of the scatter that it is easy to get used to. It all adds up to Fruit Spin being another quality addition to the fruity NetEnt slots range and one that is well worth checking out.
