The design and gameplay in Fruits and Clovers: 20 Lines is very straightforward. The reels are set against a deep green backdrop and are dominated by a collection of juicy looking fruit. At the bottom of the payout food chain are the cherries, oranges and lemons. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket a reward of 0.5, 1.5 or 4.5 times your total stake.
Slightly more rewarding are the grapes and melons. These will get you a payout equal to 1, 3 or 8 times your stake for a 3, 4 or 5-symbol combination. The lucky red 7 is the most lucrative of the standard symbols, paying 1, 5 or 18 times your stake for a 3, 4 or 5 symbol combination.
The Clover of the title is the wild. As usual, this replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter. The wild clovers spin in full stacks and can land on all 5 reels. It can deliver some large rewards too. Landing 3, 4 or 5 wilds delivers payouts of 2.5, 25 or 75 times your stake.
The other symbol you’ll see spinning around the reels is the gold star which is the scatter. This too can land on all 5 reels. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the same spin and a payout of 5, 20 or 400 times your stake will be heading to the cashier.
That’s your lot as far as gameplay goes. There aren’t any features here. No multipliers, free spins, pick me prizes. This is as simple a slot game as you’ll find anywhere. It’s not super volatile either. In fact, the variance is in the medium range, offering a balance of payouts – up to 819 times your stake overall.
We don’t really see the attraction of Fruits and Clovers: 20 Lines. Many people obviously do though given that Playson keeps adding to their catalogue of Timeless Fruit Slots.
If you’re after a simple blast of nostalgia, then Fruits and Clovers: 20 Lines will appeal. If you want anything more sophisticated, then Mighty Africa: 4096 Ways by Playson is a much better fit.
