Bar-X Fruit Machine Review
Bar-X is the classic British pub fruit machine with holds and nudges – just like the one in your local pub or arcade.
Bar-X machines can be found all over England. Every seaside arcade will feature at least one machine – if not a whole row of them. They’re easily recognised by the X O X and BAR logos on the reels.
Electrocoin released the machine back in the early 1980’s, and it has proved popular with British and Japanese players ever since. Several top gaming industry figures have described it as the best machine of all time, and a ‘benchmark for many FRUIT MACHINES on the market.’ Players love the simplicity of the gameplay and the high hit frequency.
You might be wondering what you can expect from the online version at Will Hill Casino? Well, let me give you the lowdown. In every respect, the online version plays just like the real world slot. The player is presented with a three-reel, single pay-line display. To win, you must complete three matching symbols on the pay-line.
If you’re lucky enough to hit three BAR logos, you win the jackpot! Hitting three XXX’s gives you the next prize down. The O symbol doesn’t win you anything! The game really is that simple. So how much can you win playing this game at Will Hill? Well, that depends on the size of the coin you choose to play. The minimum stake is 10p, but you can increase your bet to a maximum £20. Playing for 50p and the top jackpot is £25, bump the stake up to £2, and the prize jumps to £100.
10p – £20
Nudges & Holds
Will Hill advertise that Bar-X has an RTP (return to play) ratio of 92%. Not the best RTP but not the worst either. When playing the game, I had a couple of wins. I also triggered the hold and nudge features reasonably often. I suspect many British slot players will love the addition of the nudges and holds – I know I did.
In summary, a classic pub fruit machine perfectly presented by Will Hill. You can play for small stakes and win a reasonably jackpots. This slot machine is found in the Bingo section of the William Hill online. Wouldn’t it make more sense in the Casino section or Games section? Nevertheless, don’t worry about signing-up to the bingo room as you can play all the games on Will Hill from one account/login.
