Launched in 2019, Fruits does indeed bring something new to the table! First, it is built on an unusual reel set – a nice break from the slew of games that follow a predictable 5×3 pattern. Though the format has not quite grown tired yet, we have seen a lot of games taking the same shape.
The really interesting feature of Fruits isn’t even an in-game bonus or anything like that. This is definitely a slot game built with a mobile-first attitude. The multitude of paylines are not static – they are adaptive, going from left to right when the device is held in landscape mode, and from top to bottom when the device is in portrait mode!
Many players have complained that developers force them to use their phones or tablets in a specific orientation and not doing so renders games a little wonky or just downright unplayable. With Fruits, Nolimit City gives players the option to play as they feel most comfortable.
Of course, a slot game needs quite a bit more than that to be a winner so let’s take a look at all the other features Fruits has to offer.

If, like us, your first thought about Fruits was that it was a throwback slot, you are quite close to the truth. This video slot is certainly a modern affair, with its unusual reel layout and various features, but it also celebrates the long history of its forebears with no fewer than 12 fruit-shaped symbols.
We can see strawberries, pineapples, lemons, berries and even the unusual dragon fruit in this slot-tastic fruit salad! With these classic ingredients, Nolimit City has put together a truly modern slot, one that is perfect for our mobile-first approach to gambling. Next, we will examine the different features built into Fruits and how they work.
Fruits Free Spins
When it comes to free spins, watch out for the lightning bolt symbols as these are capable of activating the Lightning Rounds! When three or more of these symbols land on the same spin, the player is awarded 5 extra spins. The aim of this part of the game is to collect as many lightning symbols as possible within the 4×3 reel area.
It is also possible to trigger additional upgrades or bonus spins during this feature and they will enhance the payout when a winning combination is achieved. There is no cap on the number of upgrades that can be applied, which means the potential for a significant win is good.
Sticky Fruit Spins
When four identical symbols land on the first two reels (i.e. the leftmost pair) in the main game, Sticky Fruit Spins are awarded. These behave like re-spins and will continue spinning as long as further winning symbols appear. All symbols will become sticky during this feature.
This is a random feature that can be triggered during the main game only. On any spin, the player may see a Mystery Wrapper overlay applied to between 4 and 9 symbol areas. The overlay will select one symbol before the reels stop. This can trigger the Sticky Fruit Spins, which will continue as long as wins are achieved.
There is no jackpot available on Fruits. The maximum coin win is set at 2,910 times the original bet.
This video slot has a Return to Player value of 96.23%. This is considered average for this kind of game and indeed matches up to the RTPs of several other Nolimit City slots.
This game is absolutely perfect for mobile! We could even say it was built for the platform, with adaptive paylines adjusting themselves depending on the way the device is held. Enjoy Fruits on your iPhone, iPad or Android devices, in landscape or portrait modes!
