50 Fortune Fruits – Novomatic – slot review & where to play
50 Fortune Fruits
There’s something really comforting about going back to Novomatic slots.
The sounds and the features are so established that they take me back to a more innocent time. A time when a 20x bet was a bit of a baller move for me.
50 Fortune Fruits gave me that feeling. better still the old-school graphics and the immediate accessibility of this game are something that we’ve been missing in online slot releases for a while now.
You can almost tell how it’s going to play by looking at the paytable.
With a 50-line setup and stacked symbols there’s quite a bit of potential here.
The base game feels streaky, proper Novomatic.
I’ve had a couple of wipeouts followed by a session where I could barely land a losing spin.
Matched 7s have always been as rare as rocking horse poo though.
Just as I wrote that…
They are bloody difficult to land all the way across at least 🙂
The game features Wild Jokers, and there are plenty of them.
5 of those nets you 160x, excluding stacks. You can land 8000x if you manage to get them everywhere – good luck with that one!
There is certainly enough in terms of base game win potential to make the free spins feature feel like a nice add-on bonus rather than something that needs to be hit at all costs.
It’s nice when a slot isn’t entirely about landing 3 scatters.
Greentube‘s own marketing blurb for the game goes like this
Players that are looking for a polished, classic fruit slot have just found their perfect online casino game: 50 Fortune Fruits™! These reels are bursting with tasty and very lucky symbols, there’s even a Free Games feature that always knows how to amaze. Up to 30 Free Games can be won in a single spin and what’s more, the number of Wild symbols during the feature skyrockets! Old-school slot design, with the added twist of a exciting features!
I think the claim to have the added twist of exciting features is a bit of a stretch for a classic style game with stacked symbols, Wilds and a free spins round without any modifiers at all.
That said you’ll still want to hit…
50 Fortune Fruits bonus free spins.
I don’t know the exact hit rate for these but it feels like it’ll be about 150 spins or so.
3 Star Scatter symbols will get you 10 free spins
4 Star Scatter symbols will get you 20 free spins
5 Star Scatter symbols will get you 30 free spins
They can’t be retriggered so don’t expect any Captain Venture (or Railroad!) style free spins marathons.
There’s not much going on in the free spins, they are essentially spins that you’re getting for free (remember when that was always the case?). No doubt they have a modified reel-set but it’s not something I could gauge from my 3 bonus rounds.
50 Fortune Fruits – Conclusion
I think it’s great – a real breath of fresh air.
I can see that it will have its detractors for that but it doesn’t lay claim to be anything other than it is.
If you like this type of game you’ll love it – if you don’t well you’re not even reading this review so who cares? 🙂
Give it a go for yourself – I think it’s going to find some big fans.
