We’ve got to say we love the nostalgic look and feel to Fruit Stack, a slot machine that definitely draws upon the games of yesteryear for its inspiration. Featuring reel symbols that could be straight out of a green-grocers, together with a real old-school grid framework that’s set in a background where you can almost smell the beer and smokes, this game is a great trip down memory lane. Don’t think however for a moment that just because it draws on the past for its visual elements that there’s anything old fashioned about the action on offer here.
Fruit Stack is a nine pay-line game that plays across a standard five reel set up, which should be more than familiar to lovers of the slot machine genre. As you’d expect you can tweak your stake up and down and even put the reels on auto if you want to sit back with a big mug of tea and a slice of cake and just watch it spin. This is a fixed bet game, which means you can’t adjust the number of lines your betting on, which is no bad thing when you look at how the reel symbols are set up.
All the symbols in Fruit Stack, with the obvious exception of the specials, appear in stacks on the reels. These are vertical clusters of two or more icons. This greatly increases your chances of hitting big multiple combination wins that stretch across all the available pay-lines, giving you loads of chances to hit the big-time cash prize pay-outs.
To help you on your winning ways, you’ve got three special symbols in Fruit Stack. The first is the wild symbol, a staple of nearly all modern slot machines, which helps you complete combinations on the reels. The other two specials are bonus activating specials – the bonus feature and free spin scatters.
You can ramp up your ordinary reel wins in Fruit Stack with the gamble function. Just stop in a win and hit the button to take a chance at increasing your prizes. Here you can try to guess the colour of the next card off a virtual deck, doubling up your money if your prediction is correct, or if you’re feeling really lucky you can try to guess the suit of the next card in order to quadruple your riches.
As we mentioned there are two bonus rounds in Fruit Stack. The first is a free spin round, activated when you hit three of the special scatters anywhere on the reels. This gives you ten free spins which come complete with a special random multiplier that can ramp up any win you achieve on an individual spin between 2 and 5 times.
The second bonus is the wheel of fortune game, which again is activated when you hit the necessary scatters. Here you get to spin a classic segmented reel to select a prize which is indicated by a fixed pointer. You get seven spins here for starters with a chance to win three more and a special double win spin if your luck really comes in big.
Finally we’d like to end on a little bit of a Fruit Stack fact. This machine offers players an absolutely fantastic return on their money, with a RTP of 98.38%, which is the highest pay back percentage we’ve seen on any slot for some time. It makes this game comparable with Roulette and Blackjack, even when played with a system, and guess what, in our opinion it’s stacks more fun too.
Slot Professor Says
Fruit Stack is like a refreshing blast from the past. There's nothing too complicated about its easy to understand formula, which takes you back to the days of one arm bandits and all of that jazz. For me it's a little too basic to have any long lasting success, but it's definitely worth a bit of your time as the action here is so good.
What makes Fruit Stack playable is the range of wins available. Alright it might not be the most innovative game I've ever come across, but it does have a lot of pay-out power in its reels. There's a lot of fun with the simple gamble function and the machine is contained in a very nice unit. It's never going to set the world on fire, but if you're looking for a slot with a good amount of money on the reels, then this is definitely worth a spin.
