Since the dawn of slot machines, fruit images were often used in their paying symbols sets. This is due to the fact that some of the very first slot machines were more like vending automats, where a fruit-flavored chewing gum served as prizes for combining symbols. As years have passed and these machines moved from the grocery stores to Las Vegas casinos, prizes have changed, but symbols remained as a tribute to the past. Nowadays almost anything can be used as a paying symbol in slot games.
However, fruit-themed games are not something uncommon, as they create the classic atmosphere. Cash Fruits, made by the Merkur studios, is one of such classic-styled fruit-themed games. In addition, as no downloading and no registration are needed to play Cash Fruits, everyone can try it and win real money.
Gameplay and Prizes
Cash fruits offers a decent Jackpot of 50,000 Euro that is a little below average by modern day Jackpot value standards. This game is played by spinning 5×3 reels. Such format is the most popular for modern slot machines, but it is uncommon for classic ones. There are 5 unadjustable paylines in this game – 3 horizontal and 2 diagonal that is quite rare, as classic slot machines have only had 3 horizontal paylines, and modern 5×3 reels slot games mostly have 20 differently-shaped paylines or even more.
It means that gameplay of Cash Fruits is a combination of classic mechanics and some new trends. There is a simple auto start function in cash fruits that starts the spins instead of the player and can only be turned on or off without the additional settings.
The paying symbols of this game include the classic fruit set – a cherry, an orange, a grape, a lemon, a plum, and a watermelon. The only two non-fruits among game symbols are a sun that pays the highest win values and a star that is a scatter symbol. This game uses the bright and colorful graphics. Its animations are just decent, but not very impressive. The value of the bet can be varied in the range from 25 eurocents up to 10 Euro.
Features and Bonuses
As Cash Fruits are designed to resemble the classic slot machines, there are not so many features in it. This game has only two significant bonus modes – scatter symbols award bonus rounds basing on their number, and any win can be gambled. It means that after collecting any winning combination, the player is offered with a choice. He/she can take the money he/she won right away, or he/she can play the “Guess the color of card” mini-game in order to further increase the value of his winnings.
