If you loved the original Fruit Shop from NetEnt, then you are sure to enjoy this version that features the same gameplay but with a Christmassy twist. This game takes the original and puts the freeze on it, literally, with symbols in ice and the background showing the snowy weather of Christmas.
Fruit Shop Christmas Edition Online Slot Review
Even when Christmas is over, this wintery version of your favorite fruit-themed slot machine from NetEnt lives on. This Christmassy spin on the five-reel, fruit machine from this developer features the fruits you have grown accustomed to on these reels in ice cubes, signifying that it is indeed the dead of winter. The same can be said of the other symbols that are dripping with icicles.
The game’s background features more Christmas designs that include a heavily decorated Christmas tree, a smiling snowman, and snow on the ground. The game’s name is also draped in snow with sprigs of pine and hanging candy canes to indicate what season this game is in. The words “Christmas Edition” is also on the game to further cement just what season this game is representing.
The gameplay is as simple as its regular counterpart, with the control panel located at the bottom of the screen allowing you to adjust bets, launch Auto Play, and manually spin the reels. Bets can be adjusted using the Bet Level and Coin Value fields to the left and right of the Spin button. You can also choose to bet the maximum with each spin by clicking on the Max Bet button on the control panel.
The symbols in this game are the same fruits you will find in the regular version of Fruit Shop, with the main difference being that these fruits are trapped in ice cubes. These fruits include cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, and watermelons. The game also has the standard card numbers you will find on most slot machines, and these are the numbers from 10 to Ace.
The wild symbol in this game is the Fruit Shop logo. The game does not have a scatter symbol but it does have a Free Spins round that is triggered some other way. When you get the Wild symbol on the reels, your win is multiplied by 2 since each Wild symbol carries a X2 multiplier with it.
The only bonus round you will get with this game is its Free Spins round, which is triggered by the appearance of the same fruits on winning paylines. The type of fruit that is on the payline and how many there are will determine how many Free Spins you will get. You can win additional Free Spins during this round when you get more matching fruits on the board.
Additional free spins are awarded the same way when these symbols appear on winning paylines during the Free Spins round. All wins during the Free Spins round are multiplied by 2.
