Do you remember the old school slot machines, or fruit machines, so-called because the symbols were tasty fruits? Pears, melons, cherries, plums, and other fruit delights filled the reels.

Why were fruity symbols used? Well, it goes back over a century when the Bell-Fruit Gum machines gave out fruit-flavored gum as prizes because winning cash was illegal. But for decades, even after real-money slot machines became the norm, those fruit symbols, together with the bar symbol and the occasional bell, remained fashionable.

As slot game technology improved, and licensing encouraged franchised slots for films, TV, and comic characters, we moved onto a new slots world of flashing lights and music, all the way to modern-day video slots.

But those fruit slot machines never disappeared, and they now have a modern zesty twist. Here are five of the best online fruit machines to play today.

Grand Spinn

You’ll love this NetEnt game, which is a fusion of art deco and fruit slot. With three reels and only one payline, there’s nothing complicated, so sit back and enjoy the smoothness of a modern fruit machine, which includes multiplier wilds, a nudge feature, and three jackpots.

For those who like shooting for a big prize, there is also a Grand Spinn Superpot game. It’s the same as Grand Spinn but with the added attraction of a progressive jackpot.

Reel Rush

There’s something quite endearing about the fruit symbols in this slot; they look like something from a child’s computer game. But there’s nothing simplistic about the play. You have 3,125 ways to win in this novel five-reel slot, with pineapples joining more traditional fruits like oranges, plums, and the highest-value strawberry.

By using the free spin feature, your prize can mount up to a top whack of 480,000 coins – juicy indeed.

NetEnt recently updated the fruits slot game with the release of Reel Rush 2. It features similar mechanics and an updated look with a train delivering extra wilds and scatters on random spins!

Fruit Shop

Another NetEnt fruit casino slot machine, Fruit Shop pairs (not pears) fruit symbols like melons, plums, cherries, and lemons with traditional 10, J, Q, K, A symbols in a simple five-reel, three-row format.

Open the shop and spin your way to juicy riches across 15 possible paylines. The Fruit Shop symbol is wild, increasing your chances of completing paylines and launching some free spins. Winning lines in the free spins feature adds more free spins. You could be sitting back and unpeeling fruity wins for a while.

Fruit Spin

Bejeweled fruits adorn this slot across five reels and four rows. Stacked symbols add to the fun as you hunt free spins on top of landing traditional wins across the paylines.

NetEnt added a soothing soundtrack. In fact, the slot is so relaxing it’s just as much fun in the free money version on TwinSpires Casino!

Very Fruity

The last of our best online fruit machines round-up is a Scientific Games offering, which is as fruity as the name suggests. Beautifully drawn fruit symbols will leave you hungry for more as you spin for glory. Diamond wilds, Cherry scatters, and a sunny bonus symbol expand your winning chances across 20 paylines.

Get five or more of the sun bonus symbols to reveal their cash value, and you win the total.

But the real fun is in winning cash (much more exciting than old fashioned Bell Fruit Gum). So, make your first deposit and claim the new player bonus, then give these best online fruit machines a go.
