Pocket Fruity in a nutshell
You’re supposed to eat five portions of fruit a day, but we’re not sure playing on fruit machines counts. With Pocket Fruity, you’ll be able to enjoy at least five slots a day, and dozens more too!
Pocket Fruity is the mobile casino that sits in your pocket – on your smartphone or your tablet if you have big pockets. It’s owned by UK-based AlchemyBet Limited Casinos, who specialise in the supply of mobile gambling platforms and games, although Pocket Fruity is their only online casino.
They provide their own software here aside from a few other titles supplied by NetEnt and Realistic Games, so don’t expect too many famous slots titles beyond NetEnt’s admittedly impressive range. Will Pocket Fruity be lining your pockets with cash, or emptying them? Read on to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Pocket Fruity?
Pocket Fruity is big, bold and brassy, and of course more than a little fruity. It’s been designed for tablets, but will work just as well on PCs and laptops. Smaller mobile users will need good eyesight, though.
We do approve of the colourful approach, although the cartoonish aspects of the site may attract underage players, which is something we do not approve of. The site does make an issue of responsible gambling though and provides prominent links to both gambleaware.co.uk and GamCare. You can also set cool down periods and self exclude, which gets a big fruity thumbs up from us.
What games are available at Pocket Fruity?
Slots are defintely the dish of the day at Pocket Fruity. The casino seems keen to push AlchemyBet slots, which is a real surprise as they have NetEnt’s great selection on board. We didn’t get too excited when we saw some of the the titles on offer – ‘Diddy Diddly Dosh 2’ ?? – and we were even more disappointed when we found none of the games are available for free play.
As for casino games, blink and you miss them! Two versions of blackjack, one of roulette and three of video poker! Move along, nothing to see here …
There are no live casino options.
The only big name that Pocket Fruity can supply is NetEnt, but at least it is a very big name! The slots supplied by AlchemyBet are mundane in most respects.
Despite the mobile emphasis, Pocket Fruity will also run on PCs and laptops.
Support is only available via email.
What promotions are available at Pocket Fruity?
Pocket Fruity starts you off by shoving fifty free spins into your pocket. All you need to do is register a credit or debit card and half a century of freebies are all yours.
Even more juicy is the 100 percent match deposit bonus offered by the casino. This is on your first deposit, and is up to a £100 limit.
Are the wagering conditions bursting with flavour? First up you have to be a UK resident to earn your free spins, and you can use them on Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Fruit Shop and Twin Spin. You must use them within seven days and any winnings must be wagered 60x before you’re able to cash them out. The maximum you can win from free spins is £100.
The welcome bonus is UK-only too, but the wagering conditions are much more tasty at 30x the bonus. This is slightly better than the current industry standard of 35x. The minimum deposit you need to make is £10.
There’s some disappointing news ‘hidden’ in the site’s general T&Cs – you can only use your bonus funds on slots games.
The site runs a few other promos. There’s a reload bonus of 50% up to £100 on your second deposit, plus a ten percent cashback offer on all losses on a weekly basis up to £50.
There no VIP scheme as such at Pocket Fruity, but there is a ‘VIP Cashback’ scheme. If you wager more than £50 in real cash over the week and deposit more than £500 in a month you’ll receive five percent off all your losses back up to maximum of £5,000.
There are only two ways to fund your account at PocketFruity – credit and debit cards or via your mobile phone. You can use your Visa or MasterCard at the site, but no eWallet solutions. You can set your own daily deposit limit up to a maximum of £5,000.
‘Pay by Mobile’ is powered by Boku, and you can add £10, £20 or £30 to your account in this way.
Withdrawals can only be made to a bank account unless you’ve register a card and there’s a limit of £10,000 per month. The minimum withdrawal is £20 although you can request smaller withdrawals.
Withdrawal times seem to be a little on the sloth-like side at three to five days, plus there is a 24-48 hour pending period.
The final verdict
Despite the fruity promises, the wares on offer at Pocket Fruity are slightly rotten. The only things we like: the obvious commitment to the promotion of responsible gambling and the look of the site, even if it is a tiny bit juvenile.
The lack of games is the real crusher. As much as we love NetEnt’s slots (and we do) any online casino needs a bigger assortment of potential produce than is on offer at Pocket Fruity. You’re going to have more fun playing Pocket Billiards.
