Players of the operator will be given the opportunity to play NetEnt Casino’s first big title of 2021 from January 21, a week before its worldwide launch.

“We’re excited to partner with Betsson for the exclusive early launch of Fruit Shop Megaways,” Ejlertsson said in the press release.

FruitShop Megaways

NetEnt is giving a new twist to its classic slot Fruit Shop by integrating the popular Megaways payout mechanic. Fruit Shop Megaways become the first major release from one of the industry’s leading iGaming supplier for 2021.

Fan of NetEnt’s first Fruit Shop slot will absolutely love this new version because of its extremely rewarding Megaways mechanic.  Set on a 5-row, 6-reel playing dimension, the slot offers players up to 117,649 ways to win. This is all about collecting as many free spins as possible to form more combos and jack up the multipliers up to 10x.

The Megaways Online slot design looks very similar to the original Fruit Shop game – colorful and light-hearted. The playing panel appears like a typical fruit shop with fruity symbols such as watermelon, lemon, cherries, and citruses serving as medium to high-paying symbols.

Betting denomination ranges from $0.20 to $100 per spin with a max win of 20,000x the stake. The game’s RTP is a solid 96.06 percent, which is just average.

Again, the game is about collecting free spins. To get free spins, the players must get wins with medium and low-value symbols. Each win increases the multiplier that can get up to 10x a stake. The game starts with the multiplier set at 1x. As the player continues to get winning lines, the higher the multiplier will be.

Fruit Shop Megaways becomes the third NetEnt game that adapts Big Time Gaming’s popular mechanic – the Megaways System. Last year, the supplier released Twin Spin Megaways and Divine Fortune Megaways, with both receiving positive reviews.

Betsson group has consistently praised the original Fruit Shop game as ‘consistently being one of the top performing games’. The casino operator has high expectation the Megaways version of NetEnt Casin’s classic will gain the same success.
