Tom Horn’s Hot’n’Fruity promises classic entertainment with huge winning potential
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Watch the winning blaze explode !

Tom Horn Gaming’s new slot game, Hot’n’Fruity, promises to satisfy any craving for a feature-packed, visually attractive gaming entertainment.

In recent months the provider has upped its game, releasing more engaging titles with new innovative features, while still keeping classic player experience alive. This well-balanced combination of new ideas, presented in the form of game mechanics, and a tried and tested game concept, theme or visual is reflected also in Hot’n’Fruity.

Despite its thematic simplicity, this 5-reel slot is extremely engrossing due to its nifty features and winning rhythm. There are two symbols to look for. A W-star symbol appears anywhere on the screen and acts like a random Wild showering players with unexpected big wins.

R-stars are the ultimate characters to come across in Hot’n’Fruity as they trigger a Respin Wild feature when they land on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel. They expand to cover the whole reel, remaining in place while the other reels respin.

This game is sure to award lucky players with many winning opportunities. In addition to a nicely devised winning pattern, the art style is extremely well drawn and quickly pulls players into the settings.

The game is just another fruity slot, but a more inspired, nuanced alternative sure to capture the attention of players in many markets. It is available worldwide from 15th October 2019.

Bets Plus is a new client of NSoft, award-winning gaming and betting software provider. This betting operator from Zimbabwe has introduced draw-based game Lucky Six, American Roulette, Greyhound Races together with Virtual Horse Races and Virtual Motorcycle Speedway into its retail network.

“It was great to have this release and ICE Africa event in just a few days’ time span. It was a pleasure to meet the client in person and have a very constructive follow-up meeting in South Africa where we discussed the further extension of cooperation”, said Dražen Bogadi, Technical Account Manager in NSoft.

”After the presentation of the NSoft’s products and services, the mutual conclusion was that the potential for further retail expansion is promising especially when it comes to NSoft Retail Box which significantly decreases the starting investment,” said Maxine Manyowa, Operations Director of Bets Plus.

Satellite stream solution from NSoft enables virtual games to be available even in locations with low internet speed. Access to superb products is guaranteed.

NSoft Retail Box is a plug and play solution for betshops. The idea behind the project was to simplify implementation and lower the client’s investment in new hardware required in retail.
