Hot Fruits 20 Slot Review
Growing up in a Jewish household, learning to love cooked fruit was a bit of a rite of passage. Now, I don’t know about you, but I quickly got tired of eating stewed apples, peaches, dates, pineapple, mango, etc. There’s only so much sugary food I can ingest at one time, and honestly stewed apples and custard did not rock my boat. I don’t understand this strange tradition, there’s just something about soggy, warm fruit that seems to get all the Jewish grandparents jiving away with their walkers in hand. To be completely honest, I’d instead go for a cold, crisp apple over a soft, warm one any day of the week, but we won’t tell my grandmother that - she’ll be heartbroken. The texture just becomes a little too reminiscent of snot for my liking and, unless you’re freaky, that isn’t a good thing. So I don’t know, maybe I’m being too harsh? Either way, Amatic’s Hot Fruits 20 got me reminiscing for the days of stewed fruit and fruity slots.
Hot Fruits 20 is a low volatility, 5-reel, 20-payline video slot powered by software from Amatic. Fruit-themed slots seem to be all the rage today, maybe because we’re all looking for a little bit of nostalgia in this fast-paced world. The 21st century has been rough on all of us, and we’re not even two decades in so it would make sense for us to be craving a taste of the good old days; even if your version of the good old days was spent crouched over a slot in your casino’s hometown. The symbols in Hot Fruits 20 all coincide with the theme, and there are a lot of them so bear with me for a second here. There are no surprises here folks, symbols include cherries, watermelons, lemons, grapes, a plum, and oranges. The Wild is represented by a lucky 7, and the Scatter is symbolized by a gold star. Amatic haven’t tried to trick you with the controls either, but I’ll run through them just in case you’re new to all of this. From left to right you’ll find your balance, paylines, total bet, Max Bet control, Auto Play, Bet Controls, and Spin button. Not too tricky - even the newest of gamblers could figure this one out.
The Scatter symbol offers some seriously lovely Free Spins, so keep an eye out because landing it could mean the difference between winning and losing.
Hot Fruits 20 offers a stacked Wild feature. Represented by a lucky 7, landing one of these bad boys could have you rolling in some serious fruit. This wild can land on any reel, and offers up to x3, x4 and x5 payouts of 200, 200 and 5000 credits. Not too bad for a fruity slot.
Amatic has designed this slot with the older generation in mind. The graphics are nothing special, sticking with the old-school slot machine if you get my drift. Even so, it performed well on all of my devices with no lagging or delays. The soundtrack is cheesy old slot music, but it works well with the overall vibe of the game.
If you’re looking for something new, I don’t think this is the slot for you. However, if you appreciate an old-school slot with a heart of gold, I think you’ll enjoy Hot Fruits 20. It’s certainly an improvement on a lot of other fruit-based slots I’ve played and offers high payouts. There really isn’t anything to dislike here, unlike the stewed fruit of my past, so give it a whirl.
