243 Crystal Fruits Slot
Whenever we see fruits used as symbols on the reels of an online slots game, we tend to assume that the slot they’re featured in is a plain and traditional one. Sometimes, looks can be deceiving. While 243 Crystal Fruits might look like an old-school fruit machine simulator, that impression only lasts for as long as it takes to spin the reels for the first time. You’ll soon find out it’s very different. It isn't easy to make a fruit-themed slot stand out visually, but Tom Horn Gaming has done its best here by crystallizing the fruits to give them a little sparkle. Some of the elements of traditional slots have been kept, including the standard 5*3 layout and the inclusion of only five paylines, but don't let that put you off. Firstly, the paylines are easy to land on because there are so few symbols. Secondly, the number of paylines changes altogether during the bonus features. Aside from the fruits, you’ll also see a special “Wild 243” symbol on the reels - and that’s your key to the bonus door.
243 Crystal Fruits Bonus Features
The solitary bonus feature in the 243 Crystal Fruits slot is tied to the wild symbol that lands in the base game. Here’s how it works.
Each time the wild symbol lands, the number of paylines available switches from five to 243 (hence the slot's name). It also grants you a respin. Win anything on that respin, and you'll see the symbols involved in it "explode" to be replaced by new ones, granting you another re-spin in the process. This is an excellent combination of re-spins and the increasingly-familiar "avalanche pays" system. Each win increases the multiplier applied to your next win subject to a maximum of x5, and play continues until you spin without winning. At that point, the slot reverts to five paylines until your next wild symbol turns up.
About Tom Horn Gaming
Tom Horn Gaming is better known to players in Ireland than it is to the rest of the world, but that might be changing. From their base in Malta and their physical offices in the UK, the company is starting to reach out across Europe and becoming active in more markets. They might not be the biggest name in online slots (yet), but they're heavily involved in the manufacture of physical gaming products for land-based casinos. Here in 243 Crystal Fruits, they've successfully put a new twist on a very old formula. They're good at that. They've even managed to put a new twist on a very old story in their Sherlock Holmes: A Scandal in Bohemia slot! Frozen Queen is another of their best-known slots and may or may not have been partially inspired by a certain famous Disney movie. As for where the name "Tom Horn" comes from, nobody outside the company knows, and those who do know aren't telling!
