Fruit Shop Christmas Edition is a special release from NetEnt which can make fans very happy as they can now enjoy a slightly different winter version of the popular game. This doesn’t mean that the features have been changed, so big wins can still be obtained with the help of the wild symbols and the free spins with doubled prizes which can be triggered with every fruit combination.
Celebrating Christmas can be done in various different ways and Net Entertainment offered a couple of gifts to its customers with the launch of special Christmas editions of two of the most popular slots in its collection. Fruit Shop Christmas Edition is one of the two (the other is Flowers Christmas Edition) and the changes are quite substantial to the theme. Rather than having the sunny shop as the main styling concept of the game, this slot machine has a snowy theme with Christmas trees and decorations in the background. Even the playing screen has went through some changes as the fruits are now frozen solid and everything seems to be covered in snow. The best part is that the features have remained pretty much the same and can be very rewarding for playing customers. The 15 bet lines are enough to keep the action going on the 5x3 screen, while the game logo will act as a wild and substitute for any needed symbol. Combinations obtained with wild symbols also pay double the regular bet line win. The symbol of the two cherries frozen in a cube is the best one for triggering free spins as it has its own rates and combinations can start from just two symbols. Furthermore, bet line wins with matching fruit symbols will award free spins as well and all the wins obtained during the mode are doubled. During the free spins, any winning combination awards extra free spins, including the ones obtained with the card symbols. The theme changes a bit during the free spins and the counter on top keeps track of the remaining rounds. As mentioned, there are five different fruits in the game and they are frozen in cubes of ice, showing cherries, plums, lemons, oranges and watermelons. The five card symbols from 10 to Ace are also frozen solid to fit the theme.
