Fruit Machine is the only non-arcade-type game from Superior Software. It is also the only program in their catalogue that I would not personally recommend. It isn't that it is a bad program; indeed, the graphics are excellent, but I just cannot see the point in sitting in front of a screen playing a one-armed bandit. Where's the fun in it without a slot for the winnings to fall out of?

However, the program itself is well written and well presented, only lacking in prompts to remind you of the winning combinations. All the features that you would expect are there: hold, nudge, gamble, collect and so on.
