Jolly Fruits is inspired by the original slots found in pubs and early casinos. Using a basic design with five reels and ten pay lines it doesn't even sport any free spins. Translated from the quaint days of gaming into the modern mobile era, the sounds and chimes are meant to transport you back to those gambling halls. If you have no experience of them you haven’t missed much, particularly the cramped seating and the noise. Jolly Fruit’s chimes are old fashioned and they will grate your nerves within an hour if not in minutes. But the sounds of winning can easily make up for it.
Each line can hold a wager of five to ten coins with a minimum total bet of 50. The real high rollers can foot jump in at the maximum of 1,000 credits per line.
The symbols are displayed in vibrant colours that are lively and stand out. Oranges, lemons, grapes, plums, watermelons and cherries make fill this fruit cocktail line-up and there are classics like the single, double and triple Bars, bells and 7s.
The lowest paying five of a kind items are the oranges, lemons, cherries and plums at 200x, followed by the grapes, bells and watermelons at 400x. This progresses right up to the special 7s paying 2,000x wining bets.
The smiling jester acts as the game's wild and substitutes for other symbols. It can even stand in for multiple symbols on multiple pay lines. If five jesters fill an active pay line, then the main progressive jackpot can be won, provided the maximum bet was made. If not then only a proportion of it is given away.
There’s a second minor progressive jackpot that can be won with the gold star scatter icon when it appears on all five reels no matter the order. Still, getting even three will gain a prize.
