After releasing a 20 payline version, Playson is back again with Fruits & Jokers: 40 Lines. Just like the original, this classic fruity is super simple but this time comes with double the number of winning chances. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The set up in Fruits & Jokers: 40 Lines is as simple as you’ll find anywhere. The plain black reels are made up of 5 reels and 4 rows. There you’ll find a collection of classic fruit machine symbols. At the bottom of the payout food chain are the lemons, cherries and oranges. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll receive a payout of 0.25, 0.75 or 2.25 times your total stake.

The grapes and melons come next, paying 0.5, 1.5 or 4.5 times your stake for a 3, 4 or 5 on a payline combination. The best of the standard symbols is the lucky red 7 which delivers awards of 0.5, 2.5 or 7.5 times your stake. The best winning potential comes from the special symbols.

The smiling female jester is the game’s wild. This spins in stacked formation and substitutes for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on 1 of the 40 paylines and a reward of 1.25, 12.5 or 37.5 times your stake is up for grabs.

The best potential payouts come from the golden star symbol which is the scatter. It doesn’t trigger any bonus features (there aren’t any on offer here) but the payouts of 5, 20 or 400 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same spin offer more than adequate compensation. This isn’t an especially volatile slot. The variance is in the medium range with maximum payouts of 750 times your stake on every spin.

This is as straightforward a slot as you’ll play. If you enjoy classic fruit machines, then jump aboard. If you’re after anything in the way of bonuses and features, then look elsewhere – like Playson’s Book of Gold: Double Chance where you can win over 4,000 times your stake on each free spin.
