Imperial Fruits: Five Lines review
Theme and Storyline
Imperial Fruits: Five Lines is one of several fruit machine clones produced by Playson. The symbols are mildly modified from one clone to another, but in each case the general themes are simplistic gameplay and a fruit salad of symbols. Imperial Fruits: Five Lines has no bonus feature, for example.
If you enjoy the brute simplicity of old-style one armed bandits, there are slots out there that better capture that tone than Imperial Fruits’ attempt.
Graphics, Sounds and Animations
The graphics are perfectly serviceable but lack character or wit. Where some slots try to stand out from the crowd, Imperial Fruits: Five Lines seems terrified to be different. The images that adorn the reels are all photorealistic renderings of their chosen fruit or star or crown, but as a result, there is no personality to the game.
This blandness is emphasised by Imperial Fruits: Five Lines’ lack of a musical soundtrack and the fact that the audio for the reel spins and winning animations are all copied over from the standard Playson slot.
Imperial Fruits: Five Lines is a five reel slot with three rows, five win lines, two Scatter symbols, an expanding Wild and no bonus features.
Wilds, Bonuses and Free Spins
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the two Scatter symbols. When a Wild lands on a reel it, expands to fill that whole reel.
The Scatter symbols pay out for three or more symbols, no matter where they fall on the reels.
The Diamond Scatter only appears on reels 1, 3, and 5. As a result, you can only ever land a maximum of three Diamond Scatters for 20 times your bet per spin.
The Gold Scatter can land on all five reels and pays out 3 times your bet per spin for three, symbols, 20 times your bet for four symbols, and 100 times your bet for five.
There are no bonus games.
Bet Sizes, RTP and Variance
The publisher does not provide the return to player for Imperial Fruits: 5 Lines. When the return to player for a slot is not clearly provided, we find that lack of information concerning. The reluctance to reveal the return to player could easily be covering up an extortionate vigorish.
Imperial Fruits: Five Lines is a dull rehash of any number of Playson’s other outputs that compounds its lack of imagination over and over by copying from its own already unoriginal brothers.
When you also consider that there is no published return to player information and the volatility is unimpressive, it becomes clear that this slot is not going to win many recommendations.
