Flowers Christmas Edition from NetEnt
If you enjoyed the quirky charm of the original Flowers slot from Net Entertainment – and the season to be jolly is upon is – then you can now enjoy a special Christmas edition of the game!
This is not the first time NetEnt have created a special snow-capped version of a popular game, there is also a Fruit Shop Christmas Edition to enjoy.
For those who know the original Flowers game, the game play, prizes and bonus games are exactly the same. If you do not yet know how this game works, this Flowers Slot Christmas Edition review explains all.
How to Win on Flowers Christmas Edition
A unique aspect of the game play for this slot is the fact that the symbols can come either a singles or pairs. This means it is possible to line up wins of 10 of a kind. There are 30 win-lines in total, and wild symbols are in play – making wins reasonably frequent. While most of these wins are modest, you will have the opportunity of some bigger payouts – especially during the free spins game where extra (stacked) wilds are in play.
The symbols are all characterful plants and flowers – and in this Christmas version of the game all of them are snow-capped.
Red roses have the biggest individual prize, if you hit 5 of the ‘doubles’ and make 10 of a kind, then you will win 2000 coins. There are 1000 coins for 9 roses and prizes go all the way down to just 3 of a kind. Wilds always count as singles, so the maximum prize with a wild is 9 of a kind (though it is possible to win over multiple lines with a wild).
It is a little ironic to see a sunflower wearing a snow cap, though this symbol still has the huge smile of the original game. This is worth 1800 coins for the 10 of a kind wins, with the carnivorous plant at 1600 and the pink flower at 1400. The flowers are completed by the snow covered bluebell (1200 for 10) with playing cards making up the remainder of the symbols.
In the original Flowers slot, the wild symbol is a blazing sun – which made me wonder how this would be handled in the Christmas edition. This time, the wild is a big snowflake, which is wearing a Santa hat. You’ll still get a wink when this symbol is involved in making a win.
Free Spins Scatters
Clouds with snowflakes are the scatter symbols, these have prizes for the total number in view and are not tied to the win-lines. These come as singles and doubles just like the flowers, and if you hit more than 4 in total then you trigger the free spins bonus game. The number of free spins you get depends on how many clouds are in view. The highest possible number is 30 (for the full 10) which gradually goes down to 8 for just 8.
You’ll be ‘treated’ to a continuous tune during the free spins, which appear via a giant cloud graphic which has added Christmas snowflakes. The only difference in the game-play is the addition of extra stacked wilds. These come in lines on the reels, meaning that they will sometimes cover entire reels – potentially creating several different wins at once. The giant snow cloud will appear once again at the end of the bonus to give you a total of coins won.
Simply saying that this is the Flowers slot with some extra snow would be an understatement. NetEnt have really gone to town with the graphics – bringing you an over the top version of the game. Small details like the win-line markers becoming tree decorations, and more decorations hanging from the branches of trees above the reels really do add some color. The background to the reels is a giant snow-storm – and the symbols themselves are all covered in snow.
One thing which is not changed is the sound. You get amusing popping sounds and small happy tunes when you win. There is a continuous tune for the free spins round that sounds nothing like any Christmas song I have ever heard.
The game setup remains exactly the same as the original. There are 30 win lines, and you can bet from 1c per line and up, and up to 10 coins per line if you wish.
I have to hand it to NetEnt, they chose a great game to make into a Christmas themed slot. This one maintains the light and entertaining quirkiness of the original, while adding a lot of snow. For some light seasonal entertainment, check out Flowers Christmas Edition for yourself soon!
