Format and Basic Rules
For the most part, once you’ve played one fruit machine, you’ve played them all. There’s not a whole lot of new innovation that can be done to the classic formula, so most fruit machines tend to feel stale and identical. I’m happy to report that while this one doesn’t look or sound particularly amazing, and its theme is nothing special, it manages to innovate exactly where it has to – in the gameplay and mechanics. The big mechanic here is that you’re offered three distinct rows on the reels, each with its own payline, essentially tripling the win possibilities that the slot offers – and let me tell you, it definitely makes a difference! There’ nothing more frustrating than spinning a fruit machine and realizing that you ALMOST got a win, if only the symbols landed a space below or above, and the three paylines eliminate this issue entirely. The big symbol – the fruit salad – also pays differently depending on which payline it lines up on.

Conclusion – Just Add Cream and Sugar
Admittedly, some may complain that “Fruit Salad” changes way too much from the classic fruit machine formula… But that complaint is bad and the people making it should feel bad. What’s the point of having a number of different classic slots if they’re all the same? The changes made here were completely necessary and justified in the context of keeping the game and experience fresh, and I couldn’t be happier with them. And besides, while in other slots you can pay two or more coins per spin to increase the size of the rewards, here you can pay to increase their frequency, and that’s a really fresh take on the whole formula. If you love classic slots, at the very least you should give it a shot!
