Flowers: Christmas Edition Slot
They're back! And they're frosty! Flowers: Christmas Edition is a 5-reel, fixed 30-pay line online slot from NetEnt. You may feel you're on familiar ground here, or at least in a familiar flower bed. This slot is a special festive edition of NetEnt's 'Flowers' online slots game. We have to admit, we're a little bit disappointed that NetEnt have chosen this game as one to give a festive makeover. We'd have much rather have the opportunity to pelt Gonzo with a few snowballs, or to have taken 'Snowburst' for a few spins. Still, the powers that be have decided that Flowers is the game to be Christmas-ised.
To be honest, there's not a lot different between this game and the standard 'Flowers' slot. The graphics have changed though – snowflakes form the background and all the usual symbols have suffered a light dusting of snow. As with the usual Flowers slot you get that feature where some symbols double up to give you the chance of 'six in a row' and other bonuses.
Your coin values for this game stretch from 0.01 to 0.50, and you can choose your bet level from one to five. All thirty pay lines remain in play at all times, and so your final wager is your coin size multiplied by your bet level, multiplied by thirty. When you're ready to put on your scarf and gloves and get digging for cash payouts, hit the 'Spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start at 5x your bet-per-line for five identical playing card values from jack to ace. The jackpot is for ten (yes … ten!) roses at 2,000x your line bet.
A snowflake wearing a Santa hat acts as the wild symbol in this slot. The wild substitutes for all other symbols aside from the free spins symbols, and any plant symbols that are 'doubles'. Wilds are neatly dispersed among the reels during normal play, but when playing free spins they become stacked.
A cloud (or a pair of clouds) acts as the free spin symbol. The total number of free spin symbols you land determines how many free spins you receive. Note that free spin symbols can appear anywhere – they don't have to be on a pay line. To land free spins, you need at least four symbols – if you land three you get the consolation of having any wins on the same spin doubled. The amount of freebies you win is as follows:
- Four symbols: 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
- Five symbols: 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
- Six symbols: 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
- Seven symbols: 25 free spins with a 4x multiplier.
- Eight symbols: 30 free spins with a 10x multiplier.
It will hardly surprise you when we tell you that if you like the original Flowers, then you will like this. If you weren't so keen, then this won't fuel much in the way of festive cheer in you. There's nothing ground-breaking about this 'special edition' – it's more a case of receiving a pair of socks for Christmas as opposed to the iPhone 6 you'd asked Santa for!
