Fruit symbols first made an appearance during the gambling bans of the early 1900s. Slots games in their gambling form became illegal and so did the symbols on them that related to playing cards and gambling in general.
Therefore, slot machines took on a more family friendly guide to survive and these machines became known as fruit machines or vending machines that dispensed sweets and treats to the public. Playing card faces were swapped with fruit symbols and these machines remained in this form until the gambling bans in society were lifted. Unexpectedly, the fruit symbols remained on some of these machines, even when they reverted back to their gambling origins.
What is more surprising still, is that even now with so many different types of slot symbols in play, slots developers are still creating games with fruit symbols on the reels. This gives games a retro feel that harks back to an age when arcades were full of fruit machine Bonanza slots games. So if you fancy travelling back in time, then here are a few fruit themed slots that are well worth checking out.
Pragmatic play is the creative force behind Fruit Party and this game is played out on an unusual 7×7 grid full of various fruit symbols. 3 or more golden fruits award 10 free spins.
