Fruit Shop Christmas is a festive version of the classic fruity slot, created by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 15 paylines, showcasing frosty or ice-cubed variations of fruit. Free Spins and Wilds can still be triggered, just as in the classic version, but expect a sprinkle of winter wonder on these features.
They’ve ditched the orange canopy for one which looks like candy cane colours. There’s a big smiling snowman to one side of the game, and a fabulous Christmas tree to the other. With gifts and confetti showered across the rest of the game’s background, there is no doubt it looks like Christmas!
Aside from the festivities, the Fruit Shop Christmas slot has very much the same features as the original. If, however, you haven’t played the original, let us explain.
Prepare your Fruit
There are 15 paylines to play within the Fruit Shop Christmas edition, and all of them will be in play throughout your game.
You can adjust the bet per line between 1p and £1, so whichever value you settle on will be multiplied by 15.
If you want to crack things up a notch, you can increase the bet level between 1 and 10, adding extra weight to the lines. Your coin bet will be multiplied by the bet level to create your total bet.
View your total bet underneath the candy-cane framed spin button, and then click inside it to start.
Land three or more of the same symbols on a payline from left to right in order to win. The bigger payouts come with the more symbols matched.
All of our high-value symbols are frozen into ice cubes.
An exception to the rule of matching three, and the most valuable pieces of fruit on these festive reels are the cherries. By matching just two of these on a payline, you will be rewarded. The highest possible payout from landing five sets of cherries on a payline is 2000 times your coin bet.
The rest of the symbols require three or more to win.
Five plums could lead you towards a payout of 1000 times your coin bet, should you have a lucky landing.
If you manage to land five of the lemons on a payline, you could be looking at 750 times your bet.
Land five of the frozen oranges from left to right and the maximum payout is 500 times the coin bet. The last of the big ones, the watermelon could award you anything up to 200 times the coin bet, for five of a kind.
The lower-value symbols as we often see in slots, are the card symbols from Ace to 10. The maximum multiplier payouts for these symbols range from 150 to 50 times, depending on the value of the card.
Frosty Festive Features
Here in the Fruit Shop Christmas edition, we have two staple features to help us make the most of this fruity cocktail.
With the high-value ice-cubed symbols, every time you make a winning combo, you will be awarded free spins.
Landing two of the cherries, or three of the others, will award you one free spin.
A payline win using four symbols will give you two free spins, and a full-five combo will give you five free spins!
What’s more, during these free spins, you can trigger even more of them if you land some more winning payline matches. Throughout the free spins, the lower-value frosty letters are also able to win you some extra spins!
Any wins during the free spins feature are doubled.
Fruit Shop Wild
Perhaps the only feature of the game which hasn't been adorned with wintry elements is the Wild symbol. Still in its original summary, colourful glory, the Wild can substitute for any of the symbols on our festive reels to build up and extend some winners.
Once again, any wins which include a Wild symbol will be multiplied by two!
A Festive Stall
We have a classic slot with an icy twist, and it never fails to get us in the mood for some festive fun. Yes, even months before or after Christmas! The simple features make it an easy game to play, with no confusion over any advanced bonus features.
We've got enough features to keep the game exciting, while maintaining the traditional essence of the fruit machines, with a seasonal twist. What a combination!
Particularly when the winter comes around, it’s great to see the snowman, tree and snowflakes upon the sky behind the game.
The Return to Player (RTP) of the Fruit Shop Christmas slot is 96.71%. We can expect a low to medium variance in the Fruit Shop Christmas Edition.
NetEnt, the developers of this slot, have a huge repertoire of fantastic quality games. There are some which add a modern touch to something classic, and others on a completely new level. To see what they are capable of doing, why not have a peek at Jumanji or Gonzo’s Quest?
