Fruit Shop Christmas Edition Pokies

Anyone familiar with Net Ent’s very popular Fruit Shop online pokie will recognise the symbols and gameplay of the Fruit Shop – Christmas Edition game, which is basically the same thing but with snowmen and festive additions to the reels, which seems something of a cheap trick. But everyone goes a bit nuts around that time of year and it’s proved to be a successful strategy to get people playing their games when they would otherwise be wrapping presents, eating too much and trying to avoid the Mother in Law.

If you have played the Fruit Shop video pokie, there’s not much more that we can add here, but for anyone new to the game read on, as it’s pretty good and manages to combine a simple design with some interesting bonus features like wild multipliers plus free spins that are triggered by every higher-value winning combination.

All that’s different from the base version is the dusting of snow on the playing card symbols and the ice encasing the various fruit that will pay out the top prizes. The awning that covers the shop has also received some snow and we have a snowman to the right of the reels and a Christmas tree to the left. A couple of presents and a stripy stocking complete the picture.

Playing Fruit Shop – Christmas Edition

There’s 5 reels here and all 15 paylines are permanently active so there’s no choice on how many to activate and the minimum stake is 0.15 per spin. High rollers will be able to play with up to 150.00 each spin and wins are created when 3, 4 or 5 of the same symbol type stop on adjacent reels on a payline from the left side. Free Fruit Shop – Christmas Edition video pokie games are available which is a good way of testing it out.

A review of the paytable will let players discover what each symbol is worth, and the high-card 10, J, Q, K and A will be worth from 50x the line bet to 150x when filling a payline. These bright blue symbols will tend to create the majority of the winlines but when any fruit symbol lands across a the reels not only do players get the higher-value prizes, but they also trigger a special bonus feature.

The watermelon is the least valuable piece of fruit, returning wins of 15, 75 or 200x when landing on 3, 4 or 5 reels across a line, while in increasing order of value we have an orange, lemon and plum, with the top awards coming when the cherry symbol appears. Players will only need to land this symbol on reels 1 and 2 across a line to get a win of 5x, and 3, 4 or 5 of them will be worth 25, 300 or 2000x.

Bonus Features

The Fruit Shop logo is wild, so it’s able to act as any other symbol if it’s then able to complete a winning combination or stretch a winline across extra reels. Although it doesn’t have any value on its own, when it creates a win by substituting for something else, the base value is doubled.

There’s no scatter symbol to trigger a free spins bonus game, but instead, any win made up of fruit symbols will automatically cause the reels to spin for free. Lines of 3 matching fruits sees the reels spin once more, while lines of 4 are worth 2 extra spins and there’s 5 bonus games played out when a full line of the same symbol stops across the reels. If a line of 2 cherries appears, a single free spin is triggered.

All wins in this round are doubled and if there’s a fruit shaped win in a free spin, any additional games are added on, so players could be getting way more than the initial 1, 2 or 5 extra games.

The Verdict

The Fruit Shop – Christmas Edition video pokie may be an easy way for Net Ent to get more players to their games but it’s a quality release that’s one of the biggest in their range so we can’t really blame them for it. Apart from the obvious seasonal design, it’s the unique way that players get free spins that makes this game stand out, and instead of being triggered at random, they occur every time a fruit symbol creates a winline which happens pretty often.

It’s not guaranteed that the free spins will be winners, but factor in the multipliers, wild substitutions with even more multipliers and the Christmassy fun that fills these reels and we have an online casino game that’s sure to be a big success each December.
