Keep reading to see how it can be!
Theme & Design
With a deep blue background that looks at though it is littered with stars and feathers either side of your game screen, and whilst the screen is minimal it works superbly. The symbols are vibrant and beautifully executed with gold connecting lines that show how the combinations fall and wins are awarded.
Game Play & Statistics
The slot plays out over 5-reel, 3-rows and 15 pay lines and rewards will be awarded when the same symbols fall adjacent to one another and diagonally giving you a far better chance to be rewarded from any spin. Before placing your bet you should take a look at the pay table as this provides you with the information that you need to understand prior to pressing the large spin button that is located in the centre at the bottom of the game screen.
Starting with the symbol at the bottom of the game screen to the furthest position left you have the information button which provides you with the paying symbols and the amount you can win when landing 3, 4 or 5 respectively, here you will also find the settings which in this case confirms that you can play with the background music and game sounds on or off as well as using the full screen and rapid spin features.
The icon that sits next in the line under the game screen is the bet amount which can be adjusted by clicking onto the pile of coins where there are several bet options available with the lowest bet being 0.15 per spin and the maximum bet being £30 per spin which is a good range that will appeal to a whole host of players. Next to the stack of coins the bet is also displayed.
Along the bottom of the screen in the centre is the Autoplay button which is depicted by and is complete with directional arrows and you can choose to play 10, 25, 50, 100, 150, 300 to infinity auto spins and you can stop or start these as you wish. Then comes the gold spin button and to the other side there is a bunny rabbit which when pressed makes the reels spin twice as quickly. Finally, on the far right below the reels is your balance and all wins that you land get added here.
Fruit Monaco offers a return to player which stands at 95.45% and although a little lower than competitor slots the game has a medium volatility rating and a hit rate of 34.7% which is better than you may expect. The game is also produced using HTML 5 software which means that the slot will play on all devices without there being any compromise on graphics and way the game displays.
Symbols & Winnings
When it comes to the symbols, they are well designed but are very much run of the mill. The highest paying symbol is the King and you will be rewarded with a cash prize of £7.50, £1.50 or 30p when you land 5, 4, or 3, respectively. Next comes the Queen who rewards £4.00, £1.00 or 25p when you land 5, 4, or 3, respectively. Land 5, 4, or 3, of the Strawberry symbol and the reward is £2.00, 85p or 20p respectively then there is the bunch of Grapes that will reward you with £1.00, 30p, or 10p for 5, 4, or 3. You will also come across lemons and cherries which will provide you with nominal rewards. Finally, there is the scatter which is represented by the star and the wild which is a crown with the word wild emblazoned on it and a multiplier on display.
When it comes to the features there are only a couple on offer, but they are quite dynamic once you unleash them. Beginning with the free spins which are activated when you land three or more of the star scatters, once the free spins are underway you will see that any wild symbols that land multiply your winning combination by up to five times.
You may also come across transforming wilds where all the Kings and Queens turn wild to help you create even more winning combinations. The best thing though is that if the original activating combinations appear you are rewarded with more free spins, and you can never have enough free spins!!
Fruit Monaco is the third in the trilogy of fruit slots from the developers at Mascot Gaming and as before they have done a good job of creating a game that looks good, plays well, and offers some great wins too. There is a definite Royal vibe running through the slot and I love the way that the King and Queen are wild in the free spins feature.
Fans of the original and classic fruit slots will enjoy Fruit Monaco as it does take things back to the classic route where you can score a juicy victory as you become the King of the game. I enjoyed playing this slot immensely, although for me I would have liked to see a few more features, my rating would be a solid 7/10 which would see it still in my top list of slots to play.
