Fruit Shop Megaways Theme
This new upgraded version of Fruit Shop is a re-release of its predecessor Fruit Shop. The slot comes with graphics that look much like the old version, but with its 6 reels and up to 117649 megaways, it is a whole new experience playing it. The symbols on this new version are the same as on the old version, and the features are much alike. Free Spins are obtained through winning connections, and wilds are substitutes to all symbols. The minimum bet size available is €0.20 where the maximum bet size possible is €100.
Like its predecessor Fruit Shop Megaways comes with some great features that spices up the base game of the slot a lot. The free spins bonus is obtained simply through getting winning connections, and the amount of spins awarded depends on the connections made. A new addition to the slot is the progressive multiplier that is activated when free spins are obtained. This multiplier makes it possible to get massive wins from a single spin. The older version was a classic slot with five reels, three rows and some paylines. The new version comes with megaways, which makes it possible to get even bigger connections on a single spin.
Free Spins Bonus
As we just mentioned, the free spins bonus is obtained by getting a connection that qualifies for the bonus to be activated. The amount of free spins awarded depends on the amount of symbols connecting on a spin, and also what symbol is connecting. Premium symbols give between 1 and 5 free spins, where the lower paying symbols can give between 1 and 4 free spins. While the free spins bonus is active, additional free spins can be awarded through new connections.
When a free spins bonus is activated, the progressive multiplier feature is activated as well. The multiplier starts as a 1x and goes up progressively when a winning connection is made on a free spin. This means players are awarded free spins and get their multiplier upgraded each time wins are made during a bonus.
The maximum multiplier value possible is 10x.
The feature that really makes the new version different from the older version is the megaways. During every spin, the number of symbols landing on each reel is selected randomly, ranging between 2 and 7. The more symbols, the higher amount of megaways.
Matching symbols in any position on three or more adjacent reels (The cherry symbol only needs two or more adjacent reels), starting from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel, results in a megaways win. The maximum amount of megaways possible on Fruit Shop Megaways are 117649 and the minimum amount are 64.
Fruit Shop Megaways on Mobile
It does not matter if you prefer to play while sitting with your desktop computer, or by opening up your favorite online casino through your mobile or tablet. Fruit Shop Megaways is optimized for them all, and can be played by both iOS and Android devices.
This re-release of an old classic slot could not be done in a better way. The way NetEnt has integrated the features available on the old version and added new features to the new version makes it quite nostalgic for veteran players to play it.
Fruit Shop Megaways might be more volatile to play, but with a maximum win of up to 10.000x the bet made, it should definitely be given a try! The range of bet sizes available on the slot makes it available for all types of casino players, and makes it possible to test the features of the slot without committing with high stakes from the beginning.
