Description and Review: Ninja Fruits. Ninja Fruits…just think about that as a slot machine concept for a while.

A combination of Martial Arts masters, Ninja assassins and, well, Strawberries, Melons and Pineapples! It’s certainly not the most obvious combination of elements. But strangely enough it works very well – visually, at least. A winning combination involving one of the fruit sees that fruit sliced apart by a Samurai sword.

Graphically, Play N’ Go have got this spot on. The symbols are bright and have an appealing comic book element to them. The sound effects are a little bit cliched and obvious, though, but they’re not intrusive – so they can be forgiven for that!

But as Tripitaka once definitely didn’t say: ‘pretty graphics a good slot do not make’….Actually, that might have been Yoda. But, no matter!

There aren’t any huge jackpots to be won on this game, so the critical thing here is whether or not it’s entertaining.

The first thing we’ll say is that you can have some pretty long sessions playing Ninja Fruits. An average return to player of 96.65% tells you that this is a low variance slot that isn’t going to magically turn you into the next Richard Branson.

However, there are two bonus rounds and all of us at enjoyed the game.

The first is a fairly standard free spins round, but the second one is great fun. Basically, you hurl throwing stars at fruit. Every time you hit one, you get a prize. If you miss, the round ends. The wins weren’t great, to be honest, but it was enjoyable.

While you can bet up to 18.75 per spin, we would suggest you keep your total bet to less than 3.00. This is because the wins in the base game tend to be small-ish and the best way to get the most out of your play is to bet low. Now, obviously, if you are a high roller, that’s not going to appeal. But Ninja Fruits slots is not the machine for a high rolling online gambler.

Instead, it’s a good fun game that will keep you entertained and might help build up a bankroll for those other more high variance games.
