    In the world of slots, one theme that will probably always be in fashion is the good old fruit theme.

    Yes, the first symbols ever used are still active on the spinning reels of the modern fruit machines.

    Rising Liner, developed by Merkur Gaming, is one more title paying homage to the humble beginnings of slots.

    The background of the reels…

    …is simple and painted red, while the colorful and well-depicted icons stand out perfectly on the dark reels.

    Animations are beautiful and interesting…

    …but the soundtrack is pretty much nonexistent unless you count some very poor sound effects when the winning combinations are made, as worthy of being called ‘music’.

    Betting Options and Symbols

    This title is played on a 5x3 grid and 20 pay-lines. 

    The lines are not fixed, and you can choose between 5, 10, 15 or 20 lines to play on. It’s important to mention that winning combinations are made going both from left to right, and the other way around.

    When it comes to betting options, you can invest from 0.01 up to 1 $ per line. So, you can start spinning the reels with a total bet in the range of 0.20 to 20 $ per spin, if you choose to play with a maximum number of lines.


    Like we already mentioned, it’s a release that is based on the original fruit machine, so it’s only logical to have cherries, lemons, plums, oranges, grapes and watermelons in the pay-table. The highest paying among them are grape and watermelon with 500 coins reward for landing 5 in the winning combo. But the highest paying of them all is, of course, the lucky 7 with 1.000 coins for getting 5 on the payline.

    What about the scatter and wild?!

    Well, players won’t be encountering a scatter on these cylinders, but the Wild is there to help you create winning combos. It can substitute for all other symbols.

    Special Features

    The developer decided to keep it simple, so there are no bonus spins or multipliers of any kind but that doesn’t mean that players will have to settle for the main game and nothing more.

    As we already mentioned, there is a wild icon but it’s not just ANY wild. It’s the Expanding Spiral Wild!

    Represented by the hypnotic and fluorescent spiral, the Wild will substitute for any symbol. However, this mesmerizing symbol will also expand in ALL directions to cover every adjacent position. Overall, it can grow to cover 9 icon positions.

    There’s more:

    After every win, you’re given the choice to gamble your winnings or to cash them in. If you want to gamble, you can choose between the simple card game, where you have to pick the color of the hidden number or the ladder game. The maximum amount you could win in both is 140 $.


    Overall, this is a basic fruit – themed video slot with some nice additions.

    The additions like the possibility of making the winning combinations from both directions, and the Expanding Wild, as well as the Gamble feature, lift up the gameplay. The graphics are neat, and the animations are attention-grabbing.
