Everyone's favorite fruit slots
The slot fruit can refer to several things. Firstly, it can be the reels of the game that are themed around fruits, for example with skittles type symbols on them. Secondly, it could also mean an entire slot which is made up completely of fruit symbols for prizes, similar to a bomb in bombay slots or 7´sin 7´s to Burn slots.
The famous fruit slot game is undoubtedly the one themed around melons, which has become the poster child of the fruit machines (and in fact all online slots) due to its simplicity and fun nature. Other examples of popular games are "Crazy Cherry" or anything with bananas in them really. Some players are drawn to the fruit slot games due to their simplicity in how they work. Some examples of the most well-known slots are "Cherry Fiesta" and "Watermelon Madness". These types of games have a minimum amount of controls, only 3 in fact! Just bet, spin and collect. This form of the game is so simple, even small children can play them! This makes them very popular in "family" or "local games arcades". You will find that most fruit slots are also referred to as "classic", due to their history with the original slot machines.
But, there is more than just bells and whistles when it comes to winning prizes in these games . There are also some hidden tricks, all you need to do is know where to look.
Using the paytable to your advantage
The first tip is by using the paytable key or button on your fruit slot machine, this will give you an idea of what the different symbols are worth and also if there are any bonus features that you can earn! You will find that some games require you to get a certain number of the same symbol in order to activate free spins or bonus rounds. However, this is not always the case and you should be doing more research on your machine before playing it.
The second tip is to pay attention to multipliers. These were introduced into fruit slots of the modern generation, and you will find them on most of the newer games. These can greatly increase your chances of winning big and should be taken advantage of.
Some games will even let you choose a multiplier before you start to play. Although this is not always true, it shows that they are more than willing to accommodate all players.
The third tip - in some of the games, a new symbol will appear on reels 2 and 4. This is known as a “wild card” and can only land in these places for extra prizes! You will find that some fruit slot machines have more than one of these wildcards. The most common is the "wild" card which replaces all other symbols when it lands in a spin. A less common form of the wildcard is when you get two or more of them that can add up to make extra wins! These cards are extremely valuable and if managed right, they will greatly increase your chances of winning big.
They often land in different places too, so be sure to check which of your wins are multiplied with the wildcard.
The last tip is to be patient, even if it looks like you are getting trolled by the machine. It may look like you are never going to win, but if you are these tips will help you win big soon enough.
Pineapple Prince slot
A new and exciting fruit slot by Netent is now available at the online casino Sol for Canadians: Pineapple Prince It's a five-reel, three-row video slot with twenty fixed pay lines, and it has some very interesting bonus features. There are symbols that trigger the bonus round as well as many mini-games such as picking watermelons and oranges or choosing between three stacks of coins.
There are wild symbols, scatters and free spins with an x2 multiplier in this game. The most interesting symbol is the one called "Wild Prince" which substitutes for all other symbols in the game except for the gold ring. This means if you get several Wild Princes on an active pay line, your highest-paying combination will most likely be paid out.
The scatter symbols are the traditional golden ring which pays out winnings when three appear anywhere on the reels. The free spins game is triggered by getting three or more of the pineapple symbols scattered on the reels. You then get ten free spins with a x5 multiplier. One drawback here is that you can't re-trigger the free spins game.
Pineapple Prince has an RTP of 95.26% meaning if you bet on all 20 pay lines and play for one hour, you'll most likely get back 95.26 euros for every 100 euros you've bet. Which is quite decent indeed!
One of the most common fruit slot machines in the Sol Casino is the one themed around melons. This game has 3 'wildcards', although you can get just one or two on some games it provides more chances to win big! Having three makes this game especially popular, however, there are always cases where people are playing fruit machine games that don't have any wildcards at all.
