Tutti Fruit(y) Machines
History first! Traditional fruit machines go all the way back to the late 1800’s. Initially, they included only playing cards then later on they changed to symbols: horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts and bells. It wasn’t until the machines were used as fruit-flavoured gum vending machines that they added the classic fruit symbols. These symbols proved to be most popular, which is why other companies stuck to the fruit theme when they started to build their own machines. Alrighty folks, that’s it for the flashback. Now let’s fast forward and have a look at some fresh takes on fruit machines below!

For this extra juicy game selection, fruits have been polished, bejewelled, warped onto your screen and even sent to space! All the interesting upgrades surely take the traditional fruit machine experience to a next level.
Fruits in space? Sure! Why not. Opal Fruits is embracing a space theme on top of the fruit machine twist. This video slot from Big Time Gaming has 6 reels and 5,625 ways to win. It’s using a new Triple Reaction engine, with 3x multipliers in the base game that could give you up to 1,296x multipliers. The Free Spins feature could reward you with an unlimited multiplier as well as infinite free spins for wins of up to 36,000 times your stake on each of them! Take me to space!
Fruit Warp definitely categorises as a ‘next level take’ on a fruit machine. What’s unique about this game (besides its rather untraditional tropical fruit selection) is that it doesn’t include traditional bet lines. Instead, each time three or more symbols are “warped” towards you – you’ll win. They don’t even need to be in any specific position as there are no reels for them to land on. A single symbol can appear on screen up to nine times per round. Try Fruit Warp
NetEnt’s Fruit Shop is a 5-reel, 15 payline slot, injecting the traditional fruit machine format with some fruity-fresh features. In this game, the free spins round isn’t generated by Scatter Symbols. Instead, you’re given complimentary games with every line win. There’s a 2x multiplier applied to wins involving the Wild and this could double in the Free Spins feature. The game is available to play from €0,15 per spin, across all devices, and could offer wins of up to 630 times your stake. To the Fruit Shop
Fruits definitely brings something new to the table with its unusual reel set and adaptive paylines for mobile play. In this game, you should look out for Mystery Wrappers that could transform between 4 – 9 symbol positions so that they match. The game also offers a Sticky Fruit Spins feature with Streak Respins (as long as a new matching symbol hits) and a Free Spins round. Play this game on all devices from between €0,10 and €100 per spin. Let’s get sticky!
NetEnt has bedazzled most of its classic fruit symbols in this take on a fruit machine, giving it some great sparkle. Fruit Spin is a 5-reel, 4-row video slot with 40 paylines. It offers a wide array of juicy features including Stacked Symbols, 3×3 Wild and Scatter Symbols, a classic Free Spins feature and the Lucky Wheels bonus game. This game is all about the latter, where you’ll spin 3 independent wheels that could result in cash prizes. You could gain access to the Free Spins feature where you’ll start off with 5 free spins.
