Where to play?
Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition, though it remains a game with a classic theme at heart, it now gets a winter coat as well, so it is turned by NetEnt into a Christmas themed slot machine. What appears to have been a popular game for NetEnt, has now gotten a second version, so that its fans can enjoy it during the holidays as well.
The way most NetEnt games are, this one also works with fixed lines, 15 of them and arranged on 5×3 reels. The way to modify the bet here is by changing the level of the bet or the value of the coins. The overall betting range available is between $0.15 and $150.
Theme & Developer
The original theme of Fruit Shop came with a fruit store shaped set of reels, on which you had classic symbols appear. The upgrade for the Christmas Edition consists of the snow and ice that is now present in most symbols that are used, but also in the background image, which shows us a snow man on the left and a Christmas tree on the right side. The symbols that we’re playing with include poker card logos made out of a light blue ice, plus fruits like watermelon, oranges, lemons, plums and cherries.
NetEnt, the creator of the Fruit Shop slots, is usually known for much better looking slot machine designs and for themes that are more unique than this. You can still count on them delivering a good looking classic slot machine though, if they choose to launch such a title.
Base Game Features
There is only one symbol in this game, that doesn’t have a fruit or a poker card on it, and that’s the wild feature. The image that was picked for it is that of a Fruit Shop logo.
Being the wild, you may use it combined with regular symbols, as long as the outcome is a combo of three or more symbols that start from the leftmost position of an active line. The big advantage of the wild in this game is that it has a 2x multiplier that it applies to wins it helps create.
Bonus Game Features
The free spins are the true stars of this game, the feature that dominates everything else you could find inside. The reason is that you can get free spins triggered with any combination of symbols which have fruits in them during the paid spins, and even with poker cards during the free ones.
If you’re playing during the regular spins, you can get 1 to 5 free spins triggered if you have any combination of two to five Cherry symbols, or three to five of any other type of fruit symbol. Multipliers of 2x get applied to the wins obtained during those free spins.
Once you’re in the free spins mode, retriggering the feature gets even easier. The cherries and the other fruit symbols continue to work the same way, but not you also have the five poker cards as potential triggers for free spins.
If you look at regular combinations of symbols, with no outside influence, then the Cherry pays the most at $20,000. With wild symbols and free spins pooling together their multipliers, you could go up to $80,000 cash from a single combo in this game.
Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition ended up being a favorite of mine, a Christmas themed slot whose biggest strength lies in its features, not in its theme.Play Now With €600 + 200 Free Spins Welcome Package
