Fruit Spin slot from NetEnt

fruitspin
Fruit machines are timeless. For decades this was the top genre in the industry, and while countless new themes have been introduced to the gambling world since then, there’s still an appetite for fruits, especially when designers get a little bit creative. That’s how in 2016 NetEnt has decided to release one more, adding to the existing sweet games versions just a little twist. 

In the Fruit Spin slot once again the same old cherries and oranges appear on the reels, along with some other classic icons like Bars and 7’s. But just beneath the surface, there’s something more going on - features that are designed to result in occasional massive payouts for lucky gamblers. Once the Mega block Scatters hit the reels, the real spinning fun begins. The Lucky Wheels feature is triggered and that’s a guarantee for some major payouts. Graphically, this slot is a case of - less is more but certainly worth a spin or two!

The slot has Low-Medium Volatility with an initial RTP of 96.84%. The RTP allows obtaining a positive mathematical expectation of winning in the casino.

Personal testers’ opinion (Review and recommendations from the testers’ team)

Regarding the base game

During our several long sessions, the slot did not keep the balance well. There were some sessions with way too many dead spins, some of which were compensated when we almost gave up hope. The accompanying soundtrack is stable, middle-of-the-road, just like the game itself. We hit a few wins in the main game - 20x - 30x total bets, landing some stacked high-value combinations and all in all the payouts were decent enough, but it didn’t keep us going for a long time.

Regarding the bonus game

When we finally hit the Lucky Wheels the fun started, but we had to admit it took much longer than we anticipated and we started to wonder about the quality of the game script. The winnings during the Free Spins feature were pretty much the same as while playing the main game. We can summarize that the Lucky Wheels are rarely triggered, and once that happens they come in series of 2-3, followed again by a long interval when they are absent. Our maximum winning was a little over 300x total bets.

As usual, our first advice is to test the game in DEMO mode before starting to play for real money.

  • Although the slot is in the middle line with its wagering index, it does not keep your balance well and, accordingly, this machine is not suitable to complete the bonus requirements. According to us and many casino specialists, the Fruit Spin slot is not the best choice for bonus hunters. You can try to complete the requirements on the bonus money, but there are many more suitable NetEnt slots for that.

In regard to playing with real money - we consider that the Fruit Spin slot can be profitable, rare - but still possible. There are two ways to go if indeed you decide to play here:

  • If you decide to have a long session, do not rush to put the maximum stakes, try to start with low bets. We advise you to make a minimum of 1000 spins. It will allow you to evaluate the game, and get a feel of what mood the machine is in.
  • If you decide to have a short session make 20 - 30 spins - just checking out the machine and your today chances (with stake approximately 1/100 of your balance). Maybe you can trigger the bonus game with the Free Spins and the Lucky Wheels inside. If that happens - take your win and move to another slot.

This is not one of our favourite slots. Regardless, that should not stop you from playing here - it can be in a giving mood and beneficial for you.
