Reel Fruity Slots from mFortune: Slot Review - a stylish update on an old school classic
Many software developers are releasing retro-style games lately as they are becoming extremely popular with slot players nowadays who fancy a trip down memory lane with some nostalgic style gaming. mFortune noticed this and decided to release Reel Fruity Slots to cash in on the trend. The game is heavily inspired from classic fruit machine slots from the past.
Reel Fruity Slots is a 5 reel slot game with 15 paylines. It comes with Free Spins, a Gamble mode, a Progressive Jackpot and a mini-game: Super Wheels.
The first feature to mention is the Wild symbol and this is illustrated by the word “Wild” that is covered in a light blueish sparkling background. It substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spins and Mini-Game symbols. A neat feature of this symbol is if you land any combination of the Wild symbol along with the Jackpot symbol that totals 5 symbols on an active payline then you will be awarded a lovely 300x payout.
To trigger the Free Spins game, you will need to land 3 Free Spins symbols on an active payline. The Free Spins symbol is represented by the words “Free Spins” in a golden font. It goes without saying that the more Free Spins symbols you land then the more Free Spins you will be awarded. For instance, if you land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you will be given 9 Free Spins.
Reel Fruity Slots also features a fantastic mini-game: Super Wheels. To trigger this excellent little bonus game, you need to land 2 or more Mini-Game symbols on an active payline. The Mini-Game symbol is denoted by an image of a sparkling diamond. The game involves spinning 3 yellow wheels that contain multiplier prizes. The more Mini-Game symbols you land then the higher the multiplier values become in the mini-game. The wheels contain red and blue segments and if you manage to land on blue or get a mix of colours then you will win a multiplier cash prize. However, if you land on red on all 3 wheels then you will trigger the Ultra Reels feature. Here you can choose to gamble your current winnings or collect them instead. If you decide to gamble then you are given the opportunity to play on a new set of reels. These reels consist of hearts, bells, and diamonds symbols. Match 3 symbols to win from 600X all the way up to a whopping 10,000X!
The last feature to discuss is the Gamble mode. This is triggered whenever you form a win across the reels. You can switch this feature on or off by pressing the Gamble button that is located beside the Spin button at the bottom of the reels. In this feature, you will be presented with a wheel that displays a range of multiplier values starting from 1.5X to as high as 12X. It is up to the player to pick a multiplier value and then spin the wheel. If you land on a green segment of the wheel then you will win a multiplier cash reward. Land on red and it is game over and you will lose your winnings. Be very careful when choosing a multiplier value from the wheel as the higher the multiplier value you pick then the more red segments will cover the wheel.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The backdrop of the game is a classy coloured grid with all of the symbols of the game neatly spread out beside the reels. It is very bright and colourful and a nice visual treat for the eyes. Symbols are wonderfully detailed and are a mix of old school fruit machine symbols such as cherries, bells, lemons, oranges, and diamonds. The symbols animate quite nicely especially when you land a win as they will squeeze and burst out a drop of a fruit onto the screen.
The game is full of arcade sound effects that sound remarkably similar to old fruit machines. It suits the theme of the game really well.

Our Verdict on Reel Fruity Slots
Reel Fruity Slots is made by mFortune and it is a fitting tribute to classic fruit machines of yesteryear but with a very stylish update. It has a nice set of very interesting features that provide excellent replay value. I was actually able to trigger the Super Wheels mini-game quite frequently when playing. I found the Gamble mode to be highly lucrative especially when you play it safe by picking the lower multiplier values from the Gamble Wheel. The slot also features a very attractive jackpot that can reach a high of several thousand. So if you fancy a bit of classic fruit machine action with a modern style twist then this slot might be just what you are looking for.
