When Eastern European outfit iGaming2go, dedicated to mobiles slots only, burst onto the scene with five games in 2013 it mostly adapted long popular genres. Hot Fruits went for the fruit machines of every slot parlour in the gaming world.
Hot Fruits plays out on five reels with five paylines – the three horizontals and a pyramid and inverted pyramid springing out of each corner. Wagering begins at 0.10 coins and will take a bet as large as five coins. There is no progressive jackpot. There is an Autoplay option to keep the reels spinning and the fruits from spoiling.
This is a version of the fruit machine with large symbols, simply drawn. Strawberries and bananas join the fruit harvest and Stars and Sevens also make appearances.
The biggest feature of Hot Fruits is its playability across all mobile platforms, as might be expected from a company whole sole mission is to manufacture mobile slots games. But they certainly did not risk any glitches and snags by building in bonus games or multipliers or screen switches. No Wilds are included either to force programmers to figure out symbol substitutions during play.
You are left to concentrate entirely on the line payouts except for the Gold Star Scatter that pays in any three positions. Once you’ve committed the pay table to memory it is simply a matter of paying attention to the spinning fruit salad and look for the top jackpot of 5,000 coins.
There is a Gamble feature that makes it possible to build your bank or bust it after every win. Guess red or black on the turn of a card and you can double the most recent award from a winning combination. Or watch it go up in flames like Bananas Foster.
