Microgaming’s Flower Fortunes MegaWays Video Slot Review

Video slots that use the MegaWays game engine have become hugely popular but we’ve never seen one quite like Flower Fortunes MegaWays before. It’s a 6 reel slot from Microgaming in association with Fantasma Games where the game engine can expand to offer up to 531,441 different ways to win. Work your way through the level ups to bring stacked wilds, multipliers, re-spins, bonus wins and avalanche reels into play. Stakes in this unusual game range from between 50p and £250 per spin.

The design in Flower Fortunes MegaWays is quite unusual. In the background you’ll see plenty of plant life and fields full of flowers. The reels are made up of variety of brightly coloured blocks which makes this look more like a Tetris-style video game than a traditional slot. The top payer awards 10 times your bet if you land 6 on adjacent reels.

As usual for a MegaWays video slot the size and number of symbols that can appear on each reel changes with each spin. This means that the number of MegaWays changes with each spin too. Joining the standard symbols are leaves and energy orbs. When these hit, they add to the level bar meter. When you reach milestones on the meter, you’ll level up and activate some potentially rewarding extras:

  • Level 2 – reach this level and the Expanding Wilds feature become active. Any wilds that hit expand to fill the whole reel. The wilds can also come with multipliers of up to 9x attached.
  • Level 3 – a new respin symbol joins the action if you manage to reach Level 3. Each time this symbol hits, you’ll trigger the Scatter Respin feature. Between 3 and 20 symbols are also replaced which offers another shot at creating a winning combination.
  • Level 4 – look out for special Bonus symbols if you reach Level 4. Land 3 of them on the same spin and you’ll enter the Bonus Game feature where you get to choose 1 and reveal an instant cash bonus. If you don’t like what you’ve won, you can pick again.
  • Level 5 – this is the highest level. Once active, you’ll play the Avalanche feature where winning symbols are replaced and new ones drop in and replace them. The Avalanches continue as long as a new winning combination is created. Successive Avalanche wins also increase a multiplier.

Expect to go up and down the levels regularly. You don’t drop down all the levels at 1 time either. For example, a drop from Level 4 would send you down to Level 3 rather than resetting back to Level 1.

Flower Fortunes MegaWays is certainly different. The gameplay takes a little getting used to so try and have a few spins in demo mode if you can.  It’s innovative, exotic and unusual. If you’ve enjoyed MegaWays games but want to try something even more unusual, then Flower Fortunes MegaWays is a good place to try. It also can give you wins of 18,480 times your bet on every spin. If you like Megaways video slots, you cannot go wrong with NextGen Gaming’s Medusa MegaWays.
