About the only thing more surprising than the continued success of Microgaming’s Pub Fruity online slot game is the fact that it’s done so with such a terribly punny name. See, Pub Fruity is like a fruit machine within the visual framework of a good ol’ British watering hole.
After the too-cute-for-words name, though, Pub Fruity excels as a fantastic demonstration of an old-fashioned classic slot game adapted for the online casino milieu. This one’s a 3-reel, single payliner that recaptures the effect of a 1990s pub slot with nudges, holds and one exciting trail feature – on this, the lucky player may trip into highlights like “Stoppa Win” and a 500x instant jackpot payout.
Above and beyond the standard offerings of a one-armed bandit is the video bonus round which may be entered after accumulating three dart symbols from the spinning reels. In keeping with the British pub theme, a darts match is the setting for a big bonus round in which 10,000 coins or more may be won simply by choosing the correct competitor.
