Fruity online slots will probably rule casinos forever, so it's no wonder that these games dominate the portfolios of many developers. Tom Horn is no exception, and his stunt contributes to this years-long domination. Fortunately, the 243 Crystal Fruits isn't just any fruit online slot and adds a few nice ideas that are sure to keep bored players entertained.
The Game’s visuals
Tom Horn Studio's games may not be among the very best in terms of visuals, but 243 Crystal Fruits is a slot machine that is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Not that it can lift you out of your chair with its graphics, but it is pleasant to look at, even though there are fewer dynamics in the template. To the visual side, we must add the sound side. The music is unpretentious, but it's there and audible throughout. We also consider the other sounds to be good and quite appropriate to the theme. Of course, one could find a number of flaws, but with simple slots, there is no reason to look for flaws where there is no need.
Basic game properties
We have already mentioned several times that 243 Crystal Fruits is a simple fruit machine. 5 reels, 3 rows, and only 5 fixed winning lines in the base game. Yes, it's not enough, and we're not as happy about it as we were with Kajot Games' Joker Strong. Fortunately, that number will increase in the bonus game, but we're not there yet.
The controls of the 243 Crystal Fruits slot are quite well-designed. Virtually the entire game is controlled directly from the bottom of the screen. You can only launch a few functions from the menu, but they are not that important for the gameplay itself. The key, of course, is to choose the bet amount and then spin the reels. The bet value is set by clicking on the plus/minus buttons. Then just press the spin button and the game begins. But of course, there's also an Autoplay feature to make sure you don't have to click after every round of play. It has no advanced settings, you can only choose the number of spins. There is also a Max Bet button on the game screen, which with its name suggests that it places the maximum bet in the game.
In the menu, you can turn sounds on/off, set the keyboard spacebar to trigger spins, and even choose whether you want the Gamble function to be available when autoplay is running. Some games, such as those from Amusnet, do not allow this. Of course, we turned it on, because we could try to multiply our winnings several more times by guessing the correct color of the card through Gamble.
Bonus features of the slot machine
There are not many bonuses in 243 Crystal Fruits, or rather there is only one bonus symbol. Well-worth it and it is quite originally processed. This is a Wild symbol but with a good amount of overlap into the normal area of other bonus symbols. You can only spin it on reels 2, 3, and 4 and it basically does exactly what it's supposed to do, which is to substitute symbols that would otherwise be missing from the winning line.
However, in addition to this classic feature, the Wild symbol on the 243 Crystal Fruits online slot also brings other great bonuses. First of all, it activates the 243 Respin function. This will give you a free respin, or it may be several free respins. The way it works is that when a Wild is part of a winning combination, these symbols disappear after the win is added and new symbols take their place. Well, if you manage to create another new winning combination, you get a free respin again.
The great thing is that in respins, you don't just play on the original 5 winning lines, but there are up to 243 lines available depending on the number of symbols chained.
Finally, we have the win multiplier. It increases after each successful free respin and you can see its current status in a special bar on the right side of the screen. In total, you can multiply your respin win up to 5 times.
We take our hats off to the creators at Tom Horn. We haven't seen such a well-crafted wild symbol in a long time.
Review of the 243 Crystal Fruits slot
The 243 Crystal Fruits online slot may not catch your eye from the start, but trust us, it's worth giving it a chance and spinning its reels. A well-crafted Wild symbol can make this game a lot of fun. If you haven't tried any of Tom Horn's games yet, there's no reason why you shouldn't start with this one. A free demo is available to quickly see if 243 Crystal Fruits is your cup of coffee. And we daresay it does.
