Added: March 12, 2014 Bookmark and Share Commentscomments

Traditionally there used to a special type of nuts and bolts slot machine in British pubs. It had the usual three reel structure but with some exciting additional features. In those days gambling in pubs was illegal; therefore the slot machine dispensed fruit flavored chewing gum to the winners. Hence these slot machines were called fruit machines or pub fruities or AWPs (for Amusement Without Payment). All leading software providers to online casinos include fruit machines in their collection of classic slots. It takes a while for players to get accustomed to the special features of fruit machines, but those who are able to do so, swear by this genre of slot machines.

The two simplest features of online fruit machines are Nudge and Hold. The Nudge feature is offered randomly after any spin. The Nudge text is displayed below one or more reels. You can then utilize this feature and push the reel down by one position. This may lead to a winning combination in a payline. The Hold feature is also offered randomly. If you utilize this feature, the marked reel will be held fixed while the remaining reels will be spun again. Both these features are optional but do not cost you anything if you decide to utilize them.

The Cash Ladder is a somewhat more complex feature of the fruit machine. Any win in the normal way activates the first rung of the Cash Ladder. You then have to predict whether the next number revealed will be higher or lower than the displayed number. A correct guess will allow you to climb one rung of the Cash Ladder. You can cash the prize offered on that rung or try to climb higher on your next win. An incorrect guess will abort this feature without your winning anything. Higher rungs of the Cash Ladder offer more lucrative prizes. The highest usually has a Cash Pot jackpot prize.

The real action of the fruit machine lies in the Feature Board. This feature gets activated by a specified combination of symbols on the payline. The game then shifts to the squares along the perimeter of the Feature Board. You move along these squares in accordance with the numbers rolled on virtual dice. When you land on a square you get the benefit provided. Some of the popular benefits are moving up the Cash Ladder, enhancing the amount of the Cash Pot and availing of special games. The Feature Board is not all good. It has booby squares that terminate the feature.
