Playson’s quest to corner the stripped back fruit machine market continues with the release of 3 Fruits Win: 10 Lines. It’s another super simple take on the classic fruity that’s played using a 5 reel, 10 payline, win both ways game engine. There’s nothing in the way of features here but each payline can deliver awards of up to 250 times your total stake. Play from between 10p and £100 per spin.
The design here will be instantly recognisable if you’ve played any of the slots in Playson’s Timeless Fruits collection. The plain purple reels are made up of 7 standard fruit machine favourites. At the bottom of the payout food chain are the lemons and cherries which pay 1, 2.5 or 15 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
Next come the orange and plum which award 1.5, 5 or 20 times your stake followed by the grapes and melon which award 3, 15 or 50 times your stake. The best paying symbol is the lucky red 7. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination and you’ll pocket an award of 5, 50 or 250 times your stake.
There’s isn’t a wild here but the gold star is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll win 2, 10 or 50 times stake. That’s your lot on the gameplay front. There are no features here. All the action revolves around the base game.
If you want any variety at all from a slot, then you won’t find it here. 3 Fruits Win: 10 Lines is aimed squarely at classic fruit machine fans. If you’ve played any of Playson’s other classic fruitys, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect here. The design is glossy enough but the gameplay is extremely basic.
There’s obviously a market for these stripped back games as Playson keep producing them. It won’t be near the top of our must play list but if you want some old school action then 3 Fruits Win: 10 Lines delivers just that. If you manage to fill the reels with the high value lucky red 7, you’ll be 2,500 times your stake richer. If you want bonus features and backstory, Playson has plenty of options – Mighty Africa: 4096 Ways is my recommendation.
