All About Flower Fortunes Megaways™ Slot
Fantasma Games is a small Stockholm-based and another to join the roster of BTG-licensees pumping out Megaways™ slots for the masses. The latest is Flower Fortunes Megaways. The design is sweet and summery, but it’s the bumper expanding reels and multi-level features that really grab your attention. This title mixes gambling with video-game style play within a unique world inhabited by a diversity of plants and flowers, waiting to be woken up from their slumber and go into full bloom.
Flower Fortunes Megaways is a 6-reel machine that can give you up to 531,441 ways to win. There can be 5 to 9 rows of symbols, with the default setting being 6×5. The game invites you to progress through the levels indicated on the flower stalk to the left of the reels and benefit from Wilds, Respins, Mystery Bonus games, Avalanche features and multipliers.
Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
Delightfully designed, Flower Fortunes Megaways takes you to a hidden valley where gorgeous flowers need someone to wake them up and make them bloom. The graphics are in high definition and there are fantasy vibes floating around, especially if you load the game on desktop and fully immerse yourself in the backdrop. The slot is, however, geared towards consumers of one-handed mobile gaming, so the reel set is distinctly narrow.
The symbols on the reels are represented by valuable stone blocks and even more valuable turquoise, green, purple and red gems, and they will give lower to higher payouts in this order. For 5 and 6 red jewels lined up, you can expect to earn 2x and 5x your stake. Players can choose from 15 different bet levels which cover wagers from £0.50 to £10 per spin.
Five Levels of Features – Collect Orbs to Trigger Better Enhancements
Forming symbol combos and earning paytable wins is cool, but the game really kicks on when you make the big flower come to life. Its stem is the level meter and there are 5 of them in total. At level 1, you get up to 15,625 ways to win with no extra features. Collect 4 orbs to progress to level 2 where you’ll play on a 6×6 configuration and benefit from Expanding Multiplier Wilds. While appearing fully stacked, Wilds will carry a random multiplier up to x9. Accumulating 8 orbs will take you to level 3 and position play on a 6×7 reel set with up to 117,649 ways to win and a Respin feature.
Get 4 more energy orbs and you’ll reach level 4, played on a 6×8 reel set with up to 246,144 ways to win. This is where you need to trigger the Mystery Flower Bonus. Once you collect 16 orbs you will fill the meter and reach the fifth, final level where you’ll experience Avalanche mode.
NOTE:extra features from lower levels will stay active as you progress higher on the meter.
Mystery Flower Bonus
The Mystery Flower Bonus is a “pick-me” mini-game where you will be asked to choose one out of three mystery flowers and reveal a coin prize worth up to 1,000x your bet. The feature can only be triggered with 3 or more Scatter icons during levels 4 and 5.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Flower Fortunes from Fantasma Games undoubtedly has one of the most creative examples of the expanding reels format we have seen to date. It’s great to see a young studio break away from the tried-and-tested Bonanza-clone route so favoured by developers like Blueprint. It’s a tough slot to crack and takes some stamina, but the rewards at the top level where cascades and multipliers come into play are worth the wait. We can’t wait to see what Fantasma have to offer next!
