Flowers Slot Overview
We’re not big on gardening here, but even we can tell you there’s something off about these flowers. We wouldn’t suggest giving them to a loved one – partially because they’ll probably want prettier looking flowers, and probably because they won’t appreciate grumpy roses or aggressive weeds trying to bite them. Indeed, this seems more along the lines of a freak genetic experiment gone horribly wrong, and all the wins you get from the Flowers slot powered by Netent are probably the scientists paying you off for getting rid of the problem for them. Flowers slot machine is played on a 5×3 playing field with 30 pay lines, and while it offers the standard bells and whistles of free spins, multipliers and Wilds, the thing that really makes this game stand out compared to a standard 5 reel title is the inclusion of double symbols, which have a profound impact on the pays and plays.
A Rose By Any Other Name
We’re not sure on the graphics if we’re perfectly honest. Don’t get us wrong, it’s certainly expressive, but we’re not sure we quite enjoyed the theme of it. Some might like it a bit more, but it didn’t do the job for us. Some of the flowers look a bit out there, and we wouldn’t be surprised to find the sunflower haunting our nightmares for a little while. But others do look good, like the rose trying to pick a fight, for example. As for the user interface, it’s very well done – everything is clearly labelled, and they didn’t just shift everything into the menu and called it a day.
On the gameplay side, it’s a bit random. From our testing, we’ve had times where we couldn’t get any wins, then where we had to rely on hitting the special features to see any kind of profit, and at a few lucky strikes, we’ve managed to get huge wins from the base symbols themselves, thanks to the double icon feature. In the end, like every other slot, it boils down to how lucky you get at that moment, but we can’t see a lot of gamblers complaining about this one.
The free spins are certainly ambitious in this game. While the formula is similar, the execution makes it a lot more delightful compared to most other titles on the market. NetEnt’s release needs at least four free spins to activate it, but you can get a fair amount more, up to a maximum of eight free spins icons at once, if you’re really lucky with the double symbols. Depending on how many free spins symbols you get, it increases the multiplier of your bet, as well as the number of extra turns you receive.
So, for our final verdict, it’s a definitive yes. The theme is admittedly an odd choice, and it seems like NetEnt was more interested in experimenting with the double symbols before integrating them into more big-budget projects, and if that’s the case, we’re happy to say the experiment was successful. Double symbols make the gameplay rather exciting, as it adds another layer of excitement as it can happen randomly. Alongside a very generous free spins bonus, Flowers slot is a title we can see doing very well.
