Like some of the games made by Intouch, the in-house supplier behind mFortune and PocketWin, its ‘fruit machine’ slot is a bit humorous. It may not seem plain enough for some, however, if you look you can see a kind of joke on this immortal game theme — a throwback from the golden days of casinos and pubs, with a bit of disco added by Intouch!
Where to Play
Before we look at this lovable slot title on its own, it would be best to get a quick glimpse at the sole proprietor of the game as a prelude.
Like its sister site, mFortune, PocketWin offers a high value bonus of £5 and up to £100 matched — valuable because all winnings are for players to keep 100% without wagering requirements! This is the place for exclusively custom made games.
Design, Rules & Strategy
Let’s take a look at the glam design of Pocket Fruits, starting with its fab name that actually echoes the site’s name, PocketWin. Instead of featuring fruit symbols in an otherwise golden rimmed or mechanical looking game like classic ‘fruit machines’, a literal fruitiness takes over completely. Enter a blue starry galaxy where apples, bananas and melons sparkle and shine as if under disco balls and nightclub lighting.
Visually, about the only thing in Pocket Fruits Slots that is traditional is the look of its reels, with curved edged windows casting deep shadows over white reels, covered in fruits, Bar symbols and bonuses. Otherwise, you’re in a fruity alternate universe that plays off the idea that fruits are the centre of everything.
Rules of the Fruits
Pocket Fruits is a 5 reel slot game that is but 3 symbols tall. Like most of Intouch’s slot titles, it has been built with 15 paylines. It has only one bonus side game, patterned like a fruity Wheel of Fortune.
What we think makes this game especially great for mobile players is not only its completely straightforward mechanics and recognisable symbols, but its easy betting. Each line accepts as little as 10p, which makes adding up one’s total bet quite painless.
Strategy Gone Bananas
Again like most of PocketWin’s collection of slots that perform great on smartphones and tablets (working on 99% of makes and models), Pocket Fruits has medium RTP or return to player percentage. It is a fun spinner for casual punters just out for a low-stakes time pass. But it also accommodates the ones who aim to bring in its top payout or progressive jackpot.
The fact that there is an available progressive win (in other words a lotto-style jackpot growing over time) gives Pocket Fruits quite a bit more depth as a mobile game. If a player does want to stay in the running for a larger payoff in the normal game then bets should be kept high — but the nice thing is that even low-stakes players get the thrill of that randomly awarded progressive jackpot!
The Whole Bowl of Fruit
The official word from PocketWin is that its Pocket Fruits Slot game is one of its most popular of all time. We can understand why that is, but can you? The game has an understated giggle at the fruit concept but successfully ties it together with the idea of abundance and winning.
Along with the many graces of PocketWin, which includes PayPal and pay by phone top ups as small as £3, customer service and a loving community of players are aspects that round out the good experience.
