Surprisingly enough the objective of this fruit machine game is simply to make money. You start off with 10, 20 or 30 credits - your choice - then press a key to start the reels revolving. You can press hold to stop any of the five reels, with the hope of getting a winning combination. The fifth reel has numbers instead of symbols. According to the number sometimes a couple of the 'Supernudge' letters at the top of the 'machine' light up. Get them all and you go into the bonus feature section. Needless to say all the complexities of fruit machine gambling is here; losing gambles, holds on reels and holds on the SUPER NUDGE feature just when you only need one more letter lit to complete the set are all too common. At £1.99 this is a good way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon, but after a while I think that this will be relegated to the software cupboard.
