Fruits for the Loot
The first thing you’ll notice is just how much fruit dominates. Beneath the name in yellow and orange letters are the 6 different types of fruit you’re looking to win (along with the traditional stars, 7s and bells). You’ll need 3 of these to get any credits, with the traditional fruits being the ones used. It’s all easy to see. Of the 9 symbols, there are only 3 different values.
Although identical scores, above both sets of reels are the prizes. Though it may have seemed easier just to put up one value scoring board to cover both, it highlights how the two sets of reels can vary as to when they win.
The reels aren’t too large and indeed if it wasn’t for the paylines and knowledge of the game, you’d be excused for thinking that there were 6 reels. There may be nothing too distinctive in the layout from other fruit slots, but that’s not such a bad thing. The fruits and other symbols are all brightly coloured, it’s clear how much you can win and there are no distractions from the overall gameplay. When you win, the appropriate symbols light up.
Green Buttons and a Double Green Light
Although the layout provides plenty of information, the settings are within the green buttons. There are only 5 paylines so you don’t have to worry about changing that. Rather uniquely, here you don’t just think about changing the betting amount.
While you can play for 1, 5, 10, 20, 40, 100 or 250 you can also specify if you want to play the left-hand side game, the right-hand side game, or both. One coin or credit is equal to 0.20 euros, though the amount you’re betting in euros is always shown at the bottom of the screen. The 95.49% payout is pretty reasonable.
If you’re feeling immediately adventurous the Max Bet is a total of 500 coins. That takes in both sets of reels. Double the fun and double the reward. You can also use Auto Play which you’ll find among the Spin Settings. It may not have infinite settings or a specific number you can choose, but it still has a good selection of 5, 10, 15, 25, 50 and 100 autospins. It’s also easy to pause during these spins, change your betting amount and then continue again.
Keeping to the saving time theme, you can also increase the speed to Fast Spin and even use the space bar to spin. As there are no bonuses on offer, this is rather useful. You can decide to take the Animations off, but it does still keep the coins coming down the screen, the Big Win being announced and symbols jumping out. Why would you not want to see that, especially as it already goes at a fast pace?
While fruit machines are not generally known for their innovation, Random Runner Twin Player has found a new angle by having its dual option play.
There may not be Free Spins, a Wildcard or a Scatter on this game, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t extras. The star, which is the most valuable sign in the game, also has extra significance. If you see a star within a fruit symbol 3 times within a winning line, there is an unfixed special Star prize.
Even if you don’t receive 3, getting a mix of Fruit/Star symbols and regular symbols can give prizes when the fruits match. It gives the same reward as 3 ordinary fruit matches. The 5 winning lines are seen within the Paytable.
Double the Fun
The fruit slot machines may be more traditional in terms of gaming, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. Having the possibility of two sets of reels at the same time means the chances of bigger prizes and a double payout. Add that to a nice-looking, uncomplicated game and you have a winner.
