The Flowers slot has been one of Netent's most popular games ever since it was released and, whether you're already a big fan, or just looking for a great new slot to play, it’s time for some festive Flowers – with the new Flowers Christmas Edition.
All your favourite flowers are back for this second installment including the thorny Red Rose, the ever-smiling Sunflower, the snarling and hungry Venue Flytrap, and the Blue Bell (who looks like he's already been on the Mulled Wine). Not that you can blame the Blue Bell though as these flowers, who have grown used to basking in the summery sunshine of the first installment, now find themselves battling the seasonal snow.
However they're still queueing up to push their way on to 20 pay-lines and 5 reels of festive fun to award you a variety of wins. One of the ways Flowers Christmas Edition and Flowers both vary from many Netent games is that the main symbols pay out wins for 3 symbols right up to 10 symbols – and there's some decent wins to collect. Even at Bet Level 1 (there's 10 levels), prizes range from 10 coins all the way up to 2,000 coins which is for putting all 10 thorny Red Roses in a bunch. The flower symbols can also appear as double symbols to help you hit those high symbol targets.
The real selling power of this game though is packed into the Wild and Free Spins aspects. The Wild Symbol is a snowflake which serves two functions which are firstly as the top paying prize symbol (5,000 coins for 5 symbols on a line). The Snowflakes can also appear as Stacked Wilds, and these can then substitute for other symbols to make multiple winning combinations.
The Free Spins Bonus also packs plenty of flower power, with single and double symbols helping you trigger a range of free spins and bet multipliers. 4 symbols will trigger 10 free spins with a x2 multiplier, 5 symbols will trigger 15 free spins with a x2 multiplier, and 6 symbols will trigger 20 free spins with a x2 multiplier. However, if you hit 7 symbols you will trigger 25 free spins with a 4x multiplier, whilst 8 symbols trigger 30 free spins with a mind-blowing 10x multiplier – power to the flowers!
With 50 different ways to stake all 30 lines there's also plenty of choice whether you prefer to play for small stakes or big stakes, and you can personlise your spin-stakes by choosing levels from 1-10 and coin-values from 0.01 to 0.5. That means a minimum bet of 0.03 coins, and a maximum bet of 150 coins.
Netent's festive version of Flowers harnesses all the flower power of the original. The characters are as big and bold as ever, and the prizes on offer at all levels are decent. However, for me, it's definitely the Free Spins Bonus that makes it easy to see why it's the best of the bunch – and plenty of festive fun awaits!
