Video slot game designers NetEnt have wasted no time in launching their first title of 2021 with the announcement that their popular new slot game Fruit Shop is to be given the Megaways™ treatment. This will be the third of NetEnt’s gaming catalogue to make use of Big Time Gaming’s admired game mechanic following in the footsteps of Divine Fortunes Megaways and Twin Spins Megaways that were launched last year to rave reviews.

Enhanced gameplay

Although the layout of Fruit Shop Megaways is remarkably similar to the standard version with a 6-reel, 5-row playing grid set to a background of a conventional fruit shop, thanks to the Megaways™ upgrade there are now 117,649 ways to land a win.

The symbols in the game are the same as the previous version with everyone’s fruity favourites appearing like cherries, lemons and watermelons to name just a few. The betting range varies from a minimum of £0.20 to £100 and landing the jackpot will give you 20,000 times your unit stake in return, and the RTP is a generous 96.06%. Free spins casino users who enjoyed playing the original version will love the extra ways to win and higher multipliers that come as a result of the game being upgraded to Megaways™.

More to come in 2021

Fruit Shop Megaways is just the first release in what NetEnt hopes to be a busy year for new releases, with a recent press release stating that there is much more to come in the next twelve months.

There is the promise of more of their titles being given the Megaways™ treatment, as well as many newer branded releases and the titles that have been designed in conjunction with Red Tiger.

NetEnt’s Fruit Shop Megaways will be released on January 28 in all markets with the exception of the United States of America where they will have to wait until later in 2021.

By giving one of their most popular games the Megaways™ treatment, NetEnt have certainly started the new year with a bang, and fans of their slot games will have plenty to look forward to this year.
