The Price Is Right Spin and Win Fruity is a UK style fruit machine, with a maximum payout of 500 credits. The game, available at Virgin Casino, is chock full of your favourite UK pub fruit machine features, including nudges, holds and feature ladders in a completely fair gaming format. UK fruit machines only allow you to bet a single credit at a time. The Win Line is (generally) only the result on the centre line of reels.
You can win by getting any 3 matching symbols on the Win Line, thus earning a corresponding award listed on the paytable. When two matching symbols appear on the Win Line, you earn a free respin. The matching symbols are held and the non-matching reel respins, giving you another chance to win. Each reel position is independent of the others and is equally likely to spin in.
When you earn an award from the Win Line, the value is shown on the Climb for Cash ladder. You can either COLLECT this cash award or try to GAMBLE your way further up the Climb for Cash ladder. When you click on GAMBLE, you activate the Wheel HI-LO. The wheel spins and stops on a randomly drawn number between 1 and 12 (the challenge number). You pick HI or LO to predict whether the next number spun will be higher or lower than the challenge number. If you guess correctly, you move up the ladder. Incorrect guesses and ties lose. Each time you gamble, you will be given a new challenge number. Unlike many of the typical UK fruit machines found in UK amusement arcades, you have a truly fair and equal chance of getting any number between 1 and 12.
Many symbols have sub-symbols, labeled 1 to 4. When a sub-symbol appears on the Win Line, the corresponding number of tags are highlighted, building up the Bonus Trail. Sub-symbols appearing after an Auto Hold / Free Respin also add to Bonus Trail. When the Bonus Trail is full, you go into the Board Feature bonus.
During the Board Feature, you roll a dice which will spin a number from 1 to 6, landing you on cash, nudge, and spins squares to advance you along the corresponding prize ladders – but land on Game Over, and your prize resets to ZERO.
As you land on Cash squares, you advance up the Climb for Cash ladder. You can collect the current value of the Climb for Cash ladder only after landing on a Cash square, reaching the top of the Climb for Cash ladder or landing on a Collect square. You will not be able to Gamble higher on the ladder after collecting.
As you land on Nudge squares, you advance up the Nudge Pot ladder. This ladder cannot be collected until there are enough nudges to guarantee an award. A message will display under the reels to indicate the maximum possible award you can earn with nudges. Upon collecting, the reels will automatically nudge to the specified highest possible award amount. You can collect the current value of the Nudge Pot ladder only after landing on a Nudge square, reaching the top of the Nudge Pot ladder or landing on a Collect square.
As you land on Spins squares, you advance up the 5 Reel Spins ladder. This ladder can award you free spins on a special 5-reel, 9-payline bonus game – Reel-y Wild! 5 Reel Free Spin – where every spin is a winner. This bonus slot game also includes a Wild symbol to greatly increase your chances of a win. You can collect the current value of the 5 Reel Spins ladder only after landing on a Spins square, reaching the top of the 5 Reel Spins ladder or landing on a Collect square.
Other outcomes from the Board Feature include: MOVE ON (continue), GAME OVER (finish with NO prize), EXTRA LIFE (get an Extra Life), COLLECT (choose and take your prize). DAISY CORNER Activates the Daisy Feature that randomly chooses one of 6 outcomes on the Daisy – adding to your cash, nudge, or spin ladders, or forcing a GAME OVER to occur.
The Price Is Right Spin and Win Fruity will greatly appeal to slot players, especially those from the United Kingdom who love to play the popular fruit machines in their local pub or amusement arcade. The difference is that they’re more likely to win in this version provided by Virgin Casino – it’s a fairer game and most likely set at a much higher payout percentage.
