Best New Fruit Machines to Play on the Go

It seems fruit machines will never go out of fashion. Instead, it seems they evolve. Looking at the titles released in 2018, we have noticed that software providers still draw their inspiration from good old fruit machines and we kind of like it. If you share our passion for the old-school action, stay with us to learn all you should know about the best new fruit machines you can play on the go.

Swipe and Roll

NetEnt has launched several fruit machines in 2018 and this is one of them. We have selected Swipe and Roll as it differs from standard NetEnt titles bringing you a vintage theme in a completely new way. Played at 5 reels and 20 paylines, the slot takes you to a land-based casino where you can sit at a slot machine and pull its lever for a chance to win up to 8,100x your stake. Designed in the 60s style, the slot boasts great visuals and a rock music score that supports the theme of the game.

While collecting watermelons, oranges and plums, you will benefit from standard and 3x Wilds. If you manage to create a win with more than one 3x Wild, they will multiply each other meaning that your payouts can be increased by up to 27x. Land 3 or more Wilds and you will trigger the Wild Re-Spin feature during which the triggering substitutes will remain in their position to boost your winning chances. Another bonus feature is Coin Wheel triggered at random during the base game. It can award a cash prize, access to the bonus game or multiple prizes. The bonus game is played at 3 reels you can swipe up or down or simply spin to win up to 216x your stake.

Its vintage appearance and modern bonus features including 3x Wild that can boost your payouts make this NetEnt 2018 release a must play game.

Berry Berry Bonanza

In August 2018, NetEnt launched BerryBurst and BerryBurst Max. Yet, just a few months earlier, in April 2018, Playtech came up with their fruit machine using 5 reels and 9 paylines. Berry Berry Bonanza is a skillfully crafted fruit machine paying both ways and we bet you will love it from the first spin. The reels are home to all sorts of berries while cherries and lucky sevens serve as Wilds and Scatters respectively.

Look out for strawberries as five of these pay 5,000 coins. Cherry Wild appears on the three middle reels only and it doubles your winnings. Lucky Seven Scatters only pay prizes, up to 100x your total bet. A maximum possible payout you can win in a single spin stands at 45,000 coins.

Berry Berry Bonanza is a new take on the genre and we appreciate its simplicity.


Although it features no fruit symbols, the Sidewinder’s place on this list is well deserved. Developed by Just For The Win for Microgaming-powered casinos exclusively, the mobile slot uses 5 reels and 243 ways to win. With a retro feel to it, the slot uses an unorthodox 3x5x5x5x3 layout and features four-leaf clovers, lucky sevens, bells, bars and horseshoes.

Its biggest attraction is the Sidewinder feature triggered by top or bottom Wild. During the feature, you will create winning combinations in 576 or 1,125 ways to win. The slot also offers a free spins feature awarding between 6 and 10 freebies. During the feature, 1,125 ways to win are active and regular Wilds can expand to further boost your winning chances.

What makes this slot so special?

We enjoyed the innovative bonus features available in Sidewinder along with a free spins feature during which a maximum possible win stands at 2,720x thanks to 1,125 ways to win.

Jackpot Jester 200,000

The third installment in the Jackpot Jester series by NextGen offers bigger prizes you can hit across 3 reels and 5 paylines. As you can guess from its title, the biggest prize you can win stands at 200,000 coins and you can win it by landing 9 jester symbols on the reels. Looking as a physical fruit machine set against a backdrop depicting a night scene with a swimming pool, palm trees and modern buildings, the slot features cherries, lemons and plums along with diamonds, bells and lucky sevens.

Look out for the jester acting as Wild and paying the top prize. When you play the game at a bet of 20 coins you can enter the Super Game where stakes are higher but they can earn you bigger prizes going up to 200,000 coins.

What makes this slot so special?

It is undoubtedly the top prize of 200,000 coins that makes the NextGen 2018 release so special. If you are a player who likes to risk, you will love the Super Game during which you can win the top prize.

Joker’s Jewels

Another slot that has no fruit symbols on this list comes from the Pragmatic Play creative kitchen. It also features the jester along with other high-value symbols depicted as his lute, juggling clubs and shoes. The rest of positions are covered by jewels coming in different shapes and colours. The slot uses 5 reels and only 5 paylines and is pretty basic. That makes it similar to fruit machines and perfect for mobile play.

Look out for the jester symbol as it pays 1,000x your total bet for five of a kind. The crown Bonus symbol may seem a bit misleading as you may think it will award a bonus feature. On the contrary, it pays a prize of 250x your total bet only. A maximum possible payout you can hit in a single spin stands at 5,000x your bet.

What makes this slot so special?

The straightforward gameplay, high volatility and payouts as well as decent visuals with the reels looking like they are part of a physical slot machine make the Joker’s Jewels slot worth your time and money.
