Flower Fortunes Megaways slot now at Microgaming casinos
We already know that in the past couple of years, Microgaming have adopted their business model away from producing all their in-house titles.
This is a proving to be a great move just because of the variety and then easily being able to offer them through their licensed casinos, such as those in the Casino Rewards network, to expanding the number of casino sites they work with, expanding into new territories and additionally, developing partnerships with slots development studios around the globe to produce exclusive content for Microgaming.
So it is probably not the greatest surprise that this week, Microgaming have announced that the Fantasma Games slot, Flower Fortunes Megaways, is now going to be available across a wide range of casinos part of the Microgaming network.
The game is the first release from the promising Stockholm-based Swedish studio and it comes with a raft of bonuses and other exciting features, which are likely to appeal to the thousands of slot gamers that play at Microgaming casinos each month.
Speaking about the release of the game across the Microgaming network of casinos, Fantasma Games CEO Fredrik Johansson stated:
"Flower Fortunes has been a huge hit with Leo Vegas players who love the game's unique features, including the endless win lines.
"Now that the game is love on Microgaming's renowned playform, we are confident that this will be very popular amongst both operators and players and we are really excited to see our game gain momentum."
Similarly, Microgaming's director of global operations, James Buchanan remarked:
"We are delighted to add Flower Fortunes Megaways to our industry-leading portfolio of diverse content and supply our customers with even greater choice [of games].
"Featuring striking visuals, an energetic atmosphere and engaging features, including the popular Megaways mechanic, Flower Fortunes Megaways launches exclusively to our customers and joins a wealth of engaging and entertaining casino games on Microgaming's platform."
Who are Fantasma Games?
Founded in Sweden in 2017, Fantasma Games has been creating slot games since it began trading with a focus on developing the next generation of slots. Their vision, according to their website is "to create slots beyond gambling. The games to come will provide an exceptional one-handed mobile experience for the gambling industry."
The company employs ten people at the moment, but is seeking to expand that considerably in the short term and it has released seven different slot games so far:
- The Grid
- Super Sumo
- Samurai Ken
- Chicken Storm
- Spooky 5000
- Neo Spin
- Flower Fortunes Megaways
The Flower Fortunes slot is the latest release from the company, hitting casinos in June 2019. The company states it has partnerships with over 200 casinos.
What is Flower Fortunes Megaways?
Flower Fortunes Megaways is the first Fantasma Games slot that has used the Big Time Gaming Megaways, expanding reels matrix, which means that the size of each of the reels in the game can expand as you progress through your spins. You begin the slot with a 6x5 reel set and while you keep six reels, you can expand the number of symbols on each up to nine symbols as you increase the Flower Spirits energy levels, which are measured by a progress meter, as you play throughout the game.
The more symbols you have on the reels, then the greater the number of potential winning lines there are on the slot with up to an incredible 531,441 ways to win across the reel, or as it is simply known, Megaways.
As you progress through the Flower Spirits bonuses and increase the size of the reels, you also unlock a myriad of different bonuses on the slot. This includes Expanding Wilds on the reels, multipliers being applied to wins, respin bonuses on non-winning spins, a mystery flower deal or no deal bonus and on the final level, you can trigger the Avalanche bonus.
This bonus is similar to Microgaming's Rolling Reels feature which will see symbols involved in a win disappear, to be replaced from symbols above and this can then trigger additional wins from the same spin. In addition to that, a multiplier bonus will increase with every Avalanche win in the game, meaning that you can trigger increasingly higher multiplier wins with successive Avalanche wins.
Are there other Megaways games?
Yes, Big Time Gaming have licensed the Megaways method of play on slots for some time now and there are a number of other games that offer Megaways as part of their games, though not all are available at Microgaming casinos. Indeed, the Flower Fortress slot may be the first game featuring Megaways to be available at a Microgaming casino.
Other slots that feature Megaways available elsewhere include:
- Raging Rhino
- Slots of Gold
- Temple of Treasure
- Who Wants to be a Millionaire
- Vikings Unleashed
- Lightning Strike
- Diamond Mine
- Buffalo Rising
- Fishin' Frenzy
- Genie Jackpots
- Irish Riches
- Holy Diver
Is this a one off or will Microgaming offer more games from Fantasma?
Given that Microgaming have spent the best part of the last two years increasing their partnerships both with casinos in which they can offer their games as well as with slots development studios who will develop content exclusively for Microgaming and they have been expanding into new areas around the world, such as the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and Colombia, it seems to suggest that Microgaming's new more inclusive approach will continue for some time yet.
The good news for Microgaming customers is that by offering a chance to play a Megaways slot, Microgaming is further enriching the different types of games its customers can play and of course, the more expansive a choice you can give slot players as to the types of games that they can play, then the better this generally is, both for the player and for the company.
With Microgaming also seeing its games now in more casinos than ever before, in more parts of the world than ever before, it is an exciting time to be part of the process and we hope to see more exciting game announcements coming to Microgaming Casinos in the near future.
