Novomatic’s 50 Fortune Fruits Video Slot Review

50 Fortune Fruits: Demo

Basic design and no-frills gameplay are on the menu in the 50 Fortune Fruits slot, a retro-themed release from Novomatic. This classic fruity is played using a 5 reel, 4 row game engine which offers 50 paylines. The highlight is the bonus round where you can win 10, 20 or 30 free spins if the scatters fall nicely. Stakes start at 25p per spin, rising to a maximum of £50 for the high rollers.

Simple setup

There’s nothing complicated about 50 Fortune Fruits. Accompanied by a classic Novomatic ‘bang and bleep’ soundtrack, you’ll see plenty of familiar fruity imagery spinning around the reels. Flashy it ain’t. At the bottom of the payout food chain are the cherries, lemons, oranges and plums which award 3.2 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline.

Next come the melons and grapes which pay up to 6.4x followed by the bell and strawberry which award 9.6x if you land 5 in combination. The red and silver 7s are the best standard symbols. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket an award of 0.8, 3.2 or 16 times your bet.

Wild winds

Helping your winning chances is the grinning joker which can appear on all 5 reels and replace everything with the exception of the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 joker wilds across a payline and you’ll win a payout of 1.6, 8 or 160 times your total bet.

10, 20 or 30 free spins

The star is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature and with it, 10, 20 or 30 free spins. There’s no scope to win more free spins or benefit from any other extras or features. It’s as simple as it gets.

Classic Novomatic

Novomatic has spiced up the design and features in many of its recent releases. They’ve still got room for an old school fruity though which is just what 50 Fortune Fruits is. The simple visuals and basic gameplay won’t be for everyone but if you like retro action then you won’t go too far wrong with this release.

You can theoretically win 8,000 times your bet on each spin by getting a screen full of smiling joker wilds – however, the max win has been capped at 500 times your bet (per spin). If you want a good Novomatic slot to play, Kingdom of Legend would be my choice. If you’ve stumbled upon this review by chance, your best bet is to visit our Most Popular Slots section.
