Even nowadays, fruits can often be seen among slot machines paying symbols. Moreover, only the poker cards deck is used more often than fruits. There is a reason for such situation – the first slot machines of 19th century often used different chewing gums with fruit flavor as their prizes, so combining cherries awarded you with a cherry-flavored gum, combining oranges allowed you to get orange-flavored chewing gums and so on.
Nowadays, slot machines can be seen not only in small shops but also in such places like Las Vegas casinos. However, the usage of fruits as paying symbols persisted, possibly in order to create the “classic” atmosphere. The Cash Fruits Wild video slot game, produced by Merkur, is one of the games that use fruits among its paying symbols. However, the classic style of this game is combined with a few modern mechanics that makes this game an interesting example of eclectic in the video game design. As this game needs no downloading and requires no registration, everyone can play it and win real money.
Gameplay and Prizes
The value of Jackpot in Cash Fruits Wild is 10,000 Euro. The game is played on the game field that is composed of 5×3 reels. Contrary to most other 5×3 reels games, there are only 5 paylines in Cash Fruits Wild, and they are always active, which limits the variability of the playing tactics. The value of the bet can only be 5, 10 or 20 eurocents.
This game includes the autoplay feature that can spin the reels automatically. However, no stop conditions can be applied, and auto spins can only be turned off or on manually. Despite being a fruit-themed game, some non-fruits can be found among the paying symbols of this game – namely, a diamond (that pays the most among all symbols) and a liberty bell (that is also one of the most paying symbols, but is way cheaper than a diamond). Other symbols are more theme-relevant and include a melon, an orange, a plum, a lemon and, of course, a cherry.
The game arts are performed in the bright and joyful manner, but are not very impressive if judged by standards of modern day “eye-candy” slot games. The game animations include only spinning of reels and some small animations for winning combinations (diamonds start to spin and so on).
Features and Bonuses
The only significant feature of this game is presence of the wild symbol that is depicted as a star with “wild” caption. This symbol substitutes for any other symbol in potentially winning combinations. Aside from the presence of wilds, Cash Fruits Wild is otherwise very simple game that is very simple and similar to the slot machines of the past.
