It’s a Party up in ‘Ere!
So few vintage slots actually have a theme, so to come across one that does, however small, makes the title feel a lot more approachable. Rockin’ Fruits uses a swinging sixties music vibe to get the party started, with a variety of fruits getting in on the action and playing their way to the big finale.
It’s a unique design, to say the least, and it does well at grabbing your attention. It looks to be blocky and grainy, something that is further highlighted by our fancy technology, but you’ll find that this gritty shell gives the game a certain charm. We feel transported back in time when we play this, which is a feeling one can’t overlook when an avid gamer; doesn’t everyone say that old school games are the best?
Pump up the Jam
Blasting out some sweet tunes is all well and good, but you don’t just want to feel the music, you have to physically see what it brings, and that means we want to see some green. The bigger the better. With the wild symbol, two funky looking speakers, you can win up to 45,000 credits!
To hit that total, you’re going to need to do two things: make a maximum bet, and get five of a kind on a winline. Neither of these come easily, even though the volatility here seems to be medium. No matter, for that prize fund is all you need to keep you grounded, with your eyes squarely on the prize.
If splashing lots of cash isn’t your thing, you can try for the bonus round, a feature that doesn’t depend on what you bet – it just triggers whenever three or more icons are lined up. It’s a simple wheel of fortune level, which doesn’t exactly get the blood pumping, but in terms of play, it’s a good all rounder.
The range of prizes you can get is decent, if not out of this world, but as far as feature games go, it’s a good turn up for the books. You could be walking into the VIP lounge and get in with the band before your playthrough is over. Sweet.
Jazz is a love/hate type of music genre, but in Rockin’ Fruits you’re bound to love what it’s throwing down thanks to that scatter symbol. Taking on the shape of a gramophone, it plays to the tune of between 18 and 32,400 credits, rather than rewarding free spins.
As you’d expect, the higher totals come with the higher betting range, which means that high rollers are totally rewarded here above all others. All we can say is: if you’ve got it, go for it, baby!
Rock Another the Clock
Few slot machines move us the way that Rockin’ Fruits does – it comes in with low quality imagery, but it delivers on the gameplay front no end. Sure, it could have even greater variance than what it already offers, but we’d be nitpicking if we said that that was a big issue for us. Overall, a must play for all walks of gamers, for both new and old school lovers are catered for in varying degrees.
