Retro style fruit machine slots are introduced as the latest offering from Slotland.
Online PR News – 14-December-2011 – – When the old "One Arm Bandits" were first introduced the one of the first styles were the so called "Fruit Machines" Featuring Cherries, and Lemons and Oranges and so on. Well they are back at Slotland.
Ok these bear very little resemblance to the fruit machines one used to find in pubs. Sure the symbols are the same. There are Cherries, Plums, Oranges, Lemons, Bells, Bars and Sevens but there it ends. In the old days, way back when, in fact only 20 or so years ago, one used to find a machine in the corner of many pubs where one could break a couple of dollars into nickels and dimes and entertain oneself for a while playing on these old machines. If one is into nostalgia they were a lot of fun. One had to feed in your desired stake and pull the lever. The barrels really rolled in front of your eyes making a clunking sound as they settled down and stopped. Some had brakes so one could try and stop each barrel individually and the speed of the spin depended on how hard you spun the lever. These machines, like all gambling machines were regulated by law and had to pay out a large percentage of their takings. In addition they did kind of act as positive reinforcement paying out little amounts often.
The Lever was the first thing to go and then the barrels themselves disappeared as software using random number generators were introduced. In brick and mortar casinos, like in Las Vegas or Atlantic City there are hundreds of thousands of different machines, which account for something like 70% of a casino's profits.
Online casinos are even more versatile. Using new technology and the stunning and safe software that Slotland is renowned for these Fruitmania Slots At Slotland Casino are a multi-pay-line machine with five reels. The play is online so one is not involved with a big download of software. The minimum bet is $0.20 and there are up to 15 pay-lines so if one wishes to increase ones chances one bet will be $3. However if one wishes to hit the progressive Jackpot, which accumulates from all Slotland's slots then one need to have maximum bets on the line. The maximum bet is $4 per line (One play with 15 lines would cost $60).
Like all Fruit machines there is a hierarchy of payout. 5 Cherries on a line pays 15x, 5 Flaming 7s pays 480x and five bars will pay 1,500x the stake.
There are any number of bonuses on offer on these modern Fruit machines. Most of them are giving free spins, wild cherries and double payouts for 10 spins for example. In addition Slotland offers a $44 Bonus just for joining with no deposit necessary. But as you make your first 10 deposits they will top your deposits to have given you $1,000 free by the time you have made your 10th deposit.
