Not Alone on the Market
Multidice 81 by E-Gaming shares a very similar name with Multifruit 81 – and both games are also very close to one another in terms of gameplay, unsurprisingly. The only major difference is the absence of multipliers in the E-Gaming creation, which does limit your options quite drastically. Multi Wild from Merkur boasts a higher variance and is devoid of any sort of bonus feature. This more challenging slot game shares the same layout and original, 81-payline layout as Multifruit 81, but will probably appeal to more experienced players almost exclusively.
Not a Revolution, but a Fun Retro Challenge
Multifruit 81 is the perfect antidote to overhyped modern slot games with complicated rules and bonus. The Play’n Go team is really taking us to the basics here, and we quite enjoyed the ride. A larger betting range would have been welcome, just to make sure than even high rollers would be able to enjoy the experience fully. In conclusion, Multifruit 81 is probably not a very memorable slot game at all, but it is still a lot of fun to play. The short amount of bonus features might feel a little daunting for new players, but if you were already around in the 80s or 90s then it shouldn’t be a problem for you at all.
