Have you ever been stopped to get that perfect winning combination by just a little chance only because you could not match one symbol? Anyone who has experience of playing with slot machines in casinos has had a face to face experience of this! It happens a lot of times, but it never stops to be annoying! But there is nothing to worry about because the classic fruit machines will help you through.
The authentic fruit machines are popular as a lot of UK casino players know about it and have experienced it either at their local casinos, at the pubs or at the classic amusement carnivals. These fruit machines may be quite classic on the outer side, but in reality, they have some very amazing features which can help any player tweak the machine in order to get some great winning combinations.
History of ‘Fruities’
The term ‘fruit machine’ is mainly used for all types of slot machines which are seen in pubs and carnivals all throughout the United Kingdom, but it can also be directed to a particular type of casino machine which is found in the rest of the world that has some cool features. These games have three reels and one pay line with a number of skill-based features, like timing and decision making aspects, that lets a player make decisions while playing.
One of these brilliant features is a classic nudge. Players are rewarded with nudges at any time of the game or when the spins are done which lets the player nudge or push one or more of the reels so it can be used in the next spins. Some fruit machines reward players with any number of nudges so that the player is also able to nudge more than one reel for a lot of spins. This lets a player take control of how the outcome of the game is going to be.
If the players have a nudge feature at their feet, they can use it after any spin to slide one reel down, be it single or multiple places which depend on the structure of the game, to try and grab that winning combination. So, for the players to make full use of this feature as reflectively as possible, the machines let the players observe when they shall be moving into their payline. This feature is very beneficial, because if the players notice themselves in one of those stressful situations where they have two of the same symbols on the reels, then all they have to do is nudge the third symbol into a combination to win a jackpot!!!
Getting the Most Out of this Feature
Now that it is the player who decides when to trigger this feature, it is thought to be a skill-based aspect of the game. The player should not stress over it, because it is not that hard to find out when to activate the nudge feature.
The only catch here is that time is not on the player’s side during this game. They will not be able to get a win all the time. This is why the nudge feature will be useful in finishing significantly small wins, making a kind of small jackpot. It is advised to the players that it is better to collect as many credits as they can in the game rather than opting to save loads of nudges for a spin.
The “Hold” Feature
Another type of feature which is available for the fruit machines is the hold feature. Most slot games which have a nudge feature will also include this hold feature. It is the second way through which the machine can magically increase the player’s chances of winning. It is an immensely powerful way of use during casino games even when it does not have a guaranteed win.
What does a hold do? When a player is given a hold, they can use it at the end of a spin to keep one reel of their choice intact and in place. Their next spin will then only react with the other two reels like the one they have held will not move and will be still, allowing the players to predict what one of their three symbols will turn out to be. This, by far, raises their chances of achieving the winning combination. It is also achievable for the players to hold more than one reel for any amount of time during the spins. The number of holds given to the players may be different every time, but the feature will be constant in the game.
