We’re quite used to NetEnt producing the most interesting and visually appealing slots. So when we revisit one of their older games like Fruit Case, we’re usually in for a shock. We never thought we’d see jam production be made into a video slot, but there’s a first time for everything. Despite its age, the game held up surprisingly well. It’s not good looking by modern standards, but it’s not awful either.
Despite being all about jam, there’s no music to jam along to. However, we do have some goodies to make up for it. Fruit Case’s RTP is 96.42%, higher than the current average. Special features are things you’ve seen thousands of time by now. The Avalanche bonus, a Wild multiplier, and the ever reliable free spins. You will have to use all three special features if you plan to win the 2400x jackpot!
Despite its age, it still has a great deal of potential. It won’t compete with modern slots anytime soon, but it won’t be an eyesore either. The real fun of this NetEnt release lies in lining up all the bonuses just right. When all the stars align, you get an awesome winning combination that includes free spins and an 8x multiplier. What more does a gambler need?
Your coin range for this game is between ₹1.00 and ₹50.00 per spin. By changing their bet level and coin value, players are able to adjust their total bet. This NetEnt release can be played for as little as ₹20, or you can go all out and wager ₹1000. This is a fantastic betting spread, that will leave both casual gamblers and high rollers happy.
Symbols can be split into two categories. Delicious fruits and even more delicious jams. Of course, the jam jars are actually playing card royals in disguise! But they’re integrated into the theme quite well, so we don’t mind their presence. The slot’s logo is the Wild, while a blender full of juice is the Scatter. Both are used to trigger special features, and you will need to use all three bonuses to win the 2400x jackpot.
Avalanche: When a winning combination occurs, the icons that were part of it are crushed into jam and removed from the board. Existing symbols fall down to take their place, while brand new ones land on top of the reels. This allows for multiple wins for the cost of a single spin, which is great value for money.
Wild Multipliers: Chaining wins together with Avalanches is encouraged by more than just cash prizes. Each time an Avalanche happens, the Wild multiplier increases. It grows by two for each of the first four Avalanches, then caps at 8x. It resets back to 2x after no more Avalanche wins occur.
Free Spins: Collect three Scatters on a bet line to win 10 free spins. You can win additional free spins by collecting more Scatters during the bonus. All prizes during this special feature are multiplied by 3x.
We’ve played games that had better visuals, but we also played much worse. It shows its age, but when it came out in 2011, it was miles ahead of the pack. As a result, we won’t judge it too harshly.
After all, the real experience was always about the gameplay, and Fruit Case still nails that perfectly. If you’re in the market for medium-high volatility, chasing special features and a satisfying jackpot, then this NetEnt release is perfect for you.
