If CodeMasters keep on releasing games like this and Pub Trivia Quiz you soon won't have to leave the house to get all the fun and excitement of your local tavern. Just get a few cans in, ask a few friends to come round and be violently ill on the floor, and there you have it - the ultimate pub in your own home!

Fruit Machine Simulator 2 has all the features of the normal fruit machine - things like nudge and hold - and includes some special features, unique to the game.

You must get the highest numbers on the fruits to take you up the MEGA-TREK and get to all the good features. Shuffle- Nudge-Box allows you to shuffle the reels to try and get a better win: this uses up one nudge each time. Winner-Spinner respins the reels until you press TAKE to get the best combination, and Super-Scanner is the big one (which I can't get to!).

One problem I found with Fruit Machine Simulator 2 was that the computer was a bit mean with the numbers to begin with, making you sit and wait for ages before getting in to the fun features.

All the graphics in the game are good: there are separate sprites for all the coins, detailed pictures of notes and lots of colour everywhere. And there's a good CodeMasters tune when you first load up and plenty of spot FX in the game.

Fruit Machine Simulator 2 is one of the best around. If you're a big gambling person this could save you lots of money.
