The eagerly-awaited new Fruit Shop Megaways online slot from NetEnt is officially set to arrive at some of our top-rated UK online casinos on Thursday, January 21st. It’s the follow-up to the Fruit Shop online slot and the Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition online slot. It will be released on desktop and mobile on the same day, and the main bonus feature that you can look forward to is a Free Spins Bonus Round with Increasing Multiplier.

The game has 6 reels, and with each spin that you take, there can be up to 117,649 different ways to win. The top coin prize that you can play to win on any lucky spin is capped at 20,000x times your total stake, and you will soon be able to play from as little as £0.20 up to a maximum of £100.00 per spin. The main special symbol to keep an eye out for is the Wild Symbol (the Fruit Shop Logo), which can only ever land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (the four inner reels).

There are no Scatter Symbols or Bonus Symbols, which means that the Wild Symbols will substitute all other symbols on the reels. As mentioned, the main bonus feature is a Free Spins Bonus, which will trigger when certain winning combos land. For example, landing a Cherries Symbol win with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols will instantly trigger 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins, respectively.

Landing a Plums, Lemons, Oranges or Watermelons win with 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols gets you 2, 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins, and landing a 10, J, Q, K or A with 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols gets you 1, 2, 3 or 4 Free Spins. The Win Multiplier starts at 1X, and then each time a new winning combo forms, the multiplier will increase by one value (up to 10X). Unlike many other Megaways slots, this one doesn’t have a Cascading Reels/Avalanche game mechanic.

If you’re a fan of Megaways slots, and if you enjoyed playing on the Fruit Shop or Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition slots, then you also need to check out the new Fruit Shop Megaways slot as soon as it arrives on January 21st. While you’re waiting for this new NetEnt slot to arrive, some of the other similar slots that I can recommend checking out in the meantime are Piggy Riches Megaways, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits, Sweety Honey Fruity, Fruit Spin, BerryBurst, and BerryBurst MAX.
