When it comes to slots if it’s neon and fruit based it’s usually a winner. But then add in a video game concept to the design and you have a double whammy. 1×2 Gaming have developed this next slot called Neon Fruit and it comes with a great RTP and a pretty great bonus spins feature. If you love a good retro theme, then Neon Fruit is going to be right up your alley as it has a distinctly 90’s vibe to it.
Neon Fruit is a 3-reel, 9 fixed pay line slot offering an RTP of 96% to players. The background to the game looks almost like it has been taken from a video game or movie such as Tron. This again links in with the 90’s feel that the game has overall. Your three reel, three row game screen hangs in the middle of the video game landscape and is filled with neon symbols. In the background as the reels spin is a pretty epic sounding music track, that would be right at home in a 90’s club.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Neon Fruit begins at just 20p and can be raised to the maximum of £100 per spin. To change the bet, click the coin stack symbol at the bottom left of the screen. It will expand a small screen where you can increase or decrease your bet amount using the plus and minus symbols on offer. Once you are happy with your bet amount just click anywhere on the screen or hit the spin button to return to the game and continue play.
Wild Symbol – There are two wild symbols that are in play in Neon Fruit. The first is a purple square with the word ‘wild’ on a banner across the front and it will only appear in the main game. It will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter. The second is the same symbol but it has a ‘X2’ on the front instead of the word ‘wild’ and it will only appear in the feature. Read on below to find out more about how the second wild works.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol is a red circle with the word ‘free’ across it in orange. Land three of these symbols anywhere in view to trigger the bonus spins feature. It will land on any reel and in the main game only.
Other Symbols – In keeping with the ongoing theme, all of the symbols are brightly coloured and glowing like neon signs. Higher paying symbols are the diamond, seven, clover, horseshoe and the bells. With lower value symbols being the grapes, plum, lemon and cherries.
Bonus Spins Feature – Once you have landed three of the scatter symbols on the reels, you will enter the bonus spins feature. You will now be allocated with 10 bonus spins to play through. There is no way to retrigger the bonus spins because the scatter symbol is only available in the main game. But, the wild symbol is awarded a x2 multiplier in this round instead. So, when it helps to form a winning combination it will double the pay-out for that win!
Neon Fruit may only have one feature, but that doesn’t have a negative impact on the playability and enjoyment that the game can provide. It can get slightly monotonous over time as there isn’t much going on to keep the interest piqued, so we’d recommend playing in short bursts rather than long periods. But taking that aside, the wins more than make up for the lack of interesting extras. With the bonus spins having that x2 multiplier wild in play as well, it means players are looking at bigger potential wins for the 10 spins that are offered. Neon Fruit combines old school video game design with a great RTP and despite its lack of excitement, it is an extremely popular game and we can see why.
