Sweeeeet fruit slot machines
Fruit slot machines got here first and they’re still as sweet as ever. They came from Chicago in 1907 (lemons, plums and cherries if you must know) and have been top of the slots ever since.
Why are fruit slots are so popular? No one knows. Perhaps in 50 years it’ll be meaty slots. Or vegan slots (“Money back on Quinoa Quest, win or lose!”). But until that day, it’s cherries all the way.
And it doesn’t matter if you’re a kiwi, a kumquat and or a crusty old coconut, you’ll find something juicy at OJO’s place. And coz we know you’re busy bees, here’s our Top 5 Fruit Slot Machines.
5 Slots that make us fruity loopy
We’ve scoured over 150 slots at PlayOJO and peeled back the skins to uncover our five fruity favourites. Let the juice-off begin!
A new entry this year from Pragmatic Play, Fruit Party is a cluster game, so no reels here. Match 5 symbols in a block by connecting them horizontally or vertically to win some dough. Like most cluster games, this one has Tumbling Reels – winning symbols disappear and the ones above tumble down to create extra win sequences.
The game applies random 2x multipliers to any winning symbol too, which means you could land up to 256x on a single game. It’s also got a Free Spins feature with multipliers and retriggers galore, plus a 5000x top prize.
And best of all? Insanely catchy Euro-pop-steel-drum intro track with a beat that never drops. Go spin it and see!
Pip for pip, Fruit Party is one of the best fruit slots in 2020.
Fruit rating: 4 – Glad the strawberry’s getting its dues
Freshly picked in 2018, this is Red Tiger getting in on the Megaways™-style action with their Connected Ways mechanic.
With 6,144 Ways up your sleeve, it’s no wonder you could bag up to 10,000 times your stake. Hit a Mega Tile for bigger wins, and connected Mega Tiles for a cheeky 2x multiplier. Its Free Spins game with random selected wilds tops off a humble, tasty cocktail.
Fruit rating: 3 – Simple fruit with style
Cash Fruits Plus
You wouldn’t believe this retro 5-liner from Merkur was born in 2017, but it’s one that gets sweeter with age. No bells or whistles here, just paytable wins and wilds, plus one of the best fruit slots RTP. Who needs free spins anyway?
Fruit in the name, fruit on the reels, fruit everywhere you go. But they’re pipped for Most Valuable Symbol by their nemesis, the Red Seven. We feel your pain, worthy blackberry.
The soundtrack to the gamble feature is Kraftwerk-level genius though. Plump for the ladder version, crank the volume to 11 and feel some classic fruit slots fun.
Fruit rating: 2 – Basic supplies. Peel ‘em sloe.
Another fruit machine slot game that’s stayed fresh out of the fridge, this 15-line beauty from Play’n GO sure doesn’t look like it came from 2013. The game is packed with juicy features including Free Spins, expanding wilds and a must-play picker bonus game.
The Ninja Fruits slot brings some welcome Asian flavor to the fruit slot machine genre. Geishas, wise old man, ninjas, throwing stars, pineapples. A cult movie in the making! Ninja Fruits also has great animations that take it to the next level with sliced-up winning symols and falling cherry blossom just some of the small but special details.
Respectable choice of fruit symbols from Play’n GO, but we can’t help but feel they’ve missed a trick. Perfect moment for the lychee to make its slot debut!
Fruit rating: 4 – Pineapple stars in fab slot machine fruit cocktail.
A second entry in our fruity five for Red Tiger who smash payline records with this electric effort. Reels starts with 243 Ways that can rise to over 60 million ways (60,466,176 to be precise) thanks to the expanding reels feature.
Laser Fruit also has a Free Spins feature where expanding reels are sticky throughout the bonus rounds, and you can retrigger the feature up to 10 times too.
Symbols are a timeless salad of classic fruits, bars, bells and sevens but check out the style! Our favourite take on fruit symbols for sure. You can try this absolute peach for free too.
Fruit rating: 5 – Classic fruits get a late-night vibe
