Fruit Shop Megaways

Fruit Shop was a simple yet entertaining slot game that still has a large fanbase today. It celebrates its 10th anniversary since its launch in 2021. That could be why NetEnt, its creator, has decided to release a souped-up version of the game – Fruit Shop Megaways.

If you know anything about the Megaways slot format, you’ll understand why this is big news. We check out the basic features of the game and see what it has in store for you.

How many Megaways are there?

Megaways games sometimes vary in the quantity of winning ways that can appear on the reels. In this case, we have up to 117,649 of them in action, so there is enormous potential for some dramatic outcomes for those spins. Your current number of Megaways in play is shown under the title at the top of the first and second reels (there are six reels in all).

The return to player percentage for the game is 96.06%, so that fares well when compared to other slots. Nothing is in 3D here, but since the original game used lots of 2D graphics for the fruity theme, it is in keeping with the game’s origins.

Fruits and letters

Yes, you get the usual mix of Fruit Shop symbols in this game. It wouldn’t look right if we didn’t have lemons, oranges, and melons on the reels, so expect lots of those. You can also look out for blue letters and numbers for the lowest-valued symbols in play.

Special symbols and features

Wilds can appear during play, although they only turn up on reels two through to five.

The most unusual feature of the game is that the free spins trigger whenever you get a prize involving fruity symbols. So, you won’t get any from a letter or number prize, but anything fruity is fine. The more symbols in the prize, the more spins you receive. Different fruits trigger different quantities too.

Plenty of action on the reels in NetEnt’s Fruit Shop Megaways

Is this a new and improved version of the original? Players who love simplicity will likely prefer the original Fruit Shop slot. However, if you want to play something bigger and bolder, this one is certainly a superb slot to try. With all those Megaways in action and the chance to play some free spins whenever you get a fruity prize, this one has lots of potential for you to think about.
