Multifruit 81 is powered by Play ‘N Go and comes with 4 reels and 81 payways. The game can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from as little as 2p to as much as £100 per spin. The fruit machine twist comes with a friendly fruit Joker which multiplies your wins up to 5x – he can also expand to take over a reel.

Visually, you’d be forgiven for thinking Multifruit 81 is powered by Novomatic – it has a fruit machine feel to it and has simple cartoon style graphics. With an upbeat soundtrack, symbols on the reels include bars, cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, blueberries, watermelons, red 7s and the Joker wild.

The latter is the most valuable giving you 500 coins for 4 across a payline – the wild also substitutes for all other symbols. Look out for multiple joker wilds landing on a winning payway as this triggers the Wild Multiplier feature – 2 of them will subject your wins by a 2x multiplier with 3 of them giving you a 5x multiplier! If you get 4, there’s no multiplier unfortunately.

Multifruit 81 also comes with an Expanding Wilds feature – 1 reel is randomly chosen and highlighted for each spin you play. Any wilds on that chosen reel with expand replacing any other symbols on that reel.

Multifruit 81 may be a simple game but it’s to be treated with care as it’s highly volatile – don’t expect to win big at all really. However, when it pays big, it can give you huge wins of up to 2,520 times your total stake on each spin! For that, you will need the 5x multiplier by getting 3 wilds.

If you’re a fan of classic fruit machines, Multifruit 81 is worth playing – however, I prefer more modern games with free spins and various bonus features. Play ‘N Go offers you Village Kid and Viking Runecraft which are superb and also high variance.
