Review (Electron User)
Are you the sort of person who takes pleasure in emptying your pockets of hard-earned cash to feed the slot machines on holiday? If so, you'll love this program from Simonsoft which will soon have you believing you're back on the pier at Eastbourne - except that the money can stay in your pocket.
The game has all the features expected of a real fruit machine including nudges, holds and reel swapping. It also has some highly impressive, if a little slow, graphics such as spinning reels which bounce when they stop, and a coin pile that shows at a glance the state of your finances.
The program makes good use of sound and colour throughout, and includes a very comprehensive instruction program.
I was highly impressed by the quality of this program, which is by far and away the best adaptation I have seen on the fruit machine theme. Congratulations to Simonsoft for an addictive program providing lots of fun, which at just under £6 has to be one of the best value games around for Electron owners.
