Fruits'n'Stars

Fruits n Stars is a classically themed online slot designed by Playson. It has 5 reels and 5 winning lines with symbols, including juicy fruits and bright stars. It’s a good choice for lovers of retro style games who are looking for something a little different and a bit more adventurous than a tame 3-reel slot. Game graphics are eye-catching and provide a rainbow feel that’s common with vintage style machine symbols. There’s not much else to say about the game aside from its scatter symbol bonuses and a gamble feature. You’ll find out how these work later on in the game.

About the Developer

Playson may be considered a newcomer in the slot industry, but their offerings so far are nothing but ordinary. Their collection of 30 games and counting is a modest number, but so far they’ve managed to have some really creative and fun twists on old-time themes such as the classic 2D animated games, adventure themes, fantasy themes, Asian themed slots, etc.

Although they are risking it by giving punters slots they’re already used to, they do give their creations something unique. For example, classic 2D styled slots will have different features like the gamble feature or scatter bonuses. Traditional themes will have the unique symbol drop features, extra free spins modes, etc. You will likely win gambling promotions when you get to play their games.

About the Game

This slot has the classic set of vintage game symbols with the lineup of fruits that counts as favourites for many old-time punters. Game symbols include watermelons, cherries, lucky 7’s, lemons, oranges and more classic fruit symbols.

The symbols look nothing like the classic slot style you’re used to though. Here we have a modern version with a little glint and glimmer aspect added to the 2D images. The images look stunning and are animated to have this golden glowy tint whenever you form a winning combination. There’s also an electronic soundtrack accompanying gameplay. This feature creates a bubbly atmosphere in the game which matches the overall energy perfectly.

There’s just 5 win lines available. The game gives spinners a chance to have bet sizes as high as 200 coins. If you multiply your maximum bet size by all the 5 active win lines, your total bet value becomes worth 1,000 coins.

Having a limited number of paylines isn’t limiting at all. The “Paytable” actually appears more lucrative. For example, the least valuable symbols multiply bets placed on chosen win lines by 200x every time 5 matching ones land. These symbols include lemons, oranges, cherries, and plums. The watermelon and grape icons pay higher so when 5 land they multiply the line bet by 500x. The highest paying symbol is the 7 icon which rewards 5,000x whenever 5 land. That gives you the chance to win a jackpot of up to 1,000,000 credits if you have the maximum bet size placed.

• Scatter symbol- The golden star is the scatter. It can appear anywhere on the lines and multiplies all the total bets placed instead of just a single line bet. When you land 3 scatters you get a 2x multiplier, 4 have a 10x multiplier and 5 have a whooping 50x multiplier.

• Gamble feature- The gamble feature gives players a chance to “Gamble” their winnings for a chance to multiply their wins by 2x or 4x. Guess the card colour or suit and you could walk away happier or with nothing.

The Verdict

Playson execute the classic theme in Fruits n Stars well. The retro symbols and modern vibe in the game make it attractive and fun to play. Traditional game enthusiasts are going to love this one, despite the lack of bonus features. You can also try some bingo games at Barbados.
