Flowers – Christmas Edition Review
NetEnt is bringing back flower power with their Flowers Christmas themed slot. This 5 reels and 30 paylines slot brings you all the classic fun with a more festive feel. The original Flowers have been a favourite among casino players since its release date. Players from all over the world flock to this slot for its fun quirky characters and big winning possibilities. It might be relatively classic since it doesn’t come with a wide range of bonus features that most modern NetEnt slots have but it remains a favourite.
The Christmas addition of the slot can be played on all desktop, mobile or tablet devices from as little as 0.03 coins per spin to a maximum of 150 coins per spin. The coin values per payline ranges from 0.01 to a solid 0.5. The low coin variance is part of what makes this slot so popular, no matter what your bankroll looks like, with Flowers Christmas Edition you will have plenty of festive spinning opportunities.
The slot has a Christmas theme but keeps all the features that made the original Flowers slot as popular as it is. Considering that NetEnt also released a brand new Secrets of Christmas slot just in time for the festive season it is clear to see their excitement surrounding this giving holiday.
Look & Feel
The Flowers Christmas Edition slot definitely brings the Christmas spirit to your reels. The backdrop of the slot is an open view of what seems to be a snowy North Pole with snow covered pine trees in the backdrop. The reels are frosted and decorated with snowflakes and a wooden frame. On the reels you will find delicious gingerbread versions of the low value symbols. The higher value symbols are your favourite quirky flowers. Each flower has been covered and snow but with their personalities still as entertaining as ever the frost seems to have no effect. NetEnt has done an excellent job at maintaining the quirkiness and uniqueness of the Flowers slot while bringing in plenty of Christmas feeling and cheer.
Sound & Score
Interestingly enough the Christmas feeling hasn’t been successfully brought forward in the sounds of the slot. Most of the soundtrack contains generic casino jingles with a nature theme in the backdrop. Turning up the sound while playing this slot, will leave you feeling like you’ve just stepped into the wilderness. The soundtrack isn’t bad but it’s a pity that they couldn’t bring in more festive cheer with the sounds.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The Flowers Christmas Edition slot doesn’t come with plenty of bonus features but the Wilds and Free Spins are more than rewarding enough. Just like the original this slot will prove that quality is definitely more valuable than quantity.
The wild of this slot is a frosted sun snowflake that substitutes for all other symbols on the reels except the Double and Free Spin symbols. Wilds can appear stacked on the reels to increase your chances of winning. Landing 5 wilds simultaneously could also lead to 5,000 coin wins.
The free spin symbol is the grinning cloud and it can appear on the reels as either a single or double symbol. Landing 4 or more of these symbols will activate the free spins feature. During the free spins you will also receive a coin win multiplier. The multiplier and amount of free spins you receive depends only on the amount of free spin symbols used to trigger the free spins. If you land 2 free spin symbols on the reels you will only receive a bet multiplier of 2x with no added free spins. You will receive 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier when you land 4 free spins symbols on the reels. The more free spin symbols you get the more free spins you receive and the higher your reward becomes. If you’re lucky enough to land 8 free spin symbols in a single spin you will score a 10x bet multiplier and 30 free spins.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! As the Christmas Edition of one of the most popular NetEnt slots you know what to expect and look forward to. While the slot doesn’t come loaded with bonus features it provides more than enough rewards in the existing features. It’s a fun slot that brings extra festive cheer and gift joy to all. There is also the added incentive of being able to win 75,000 coin jackpot wins when playing this brand new slot release.
