In Bloom is a flower themed video slot, which was released in 2014 by IGT. In Bloom is really one of a kind. Not only does it have a theme that is seldom ever used to full effect in a slot, but it also contains a Symbol Burst feature, which is wholly unique to this slot. IGT’s In Bloom is incredibly colourful, it is pretty and it is generally good fun to play. From a gameplay point of view, players are going to find that In Bloom has a total of 40 paylines to play with, which sit upon 5-reels. If they want the feature though, they are going to have to wager on all of them. Playing with less than 40 lines, deactivates the Symbol Burst feature. Generally speaking, you aren’t really going to want to bet with really small sums on minimal paylines. The whole point of this game is the feature. You don’t have to wager the 2,500.00 per stake on the maximum bet, but anything around 0.40 per spin should be enough to enjoy the game to its fullest.
The way that the Symbol Burst feature works is quite creative. After any spin, any winning combinations of flower symbols could transform “or bloom” into multi-flowered plants. For instance, a red poppy might flower into two, three, four or five flowered poppies. It is really quite clever. What is the point, though? The basic idea is that the more flowers your plant icon has, the bigger the win you will receive. Each additional flower on an icon counts as another icon. So a four flowered poppy plant symbol counts as 4 poppy symbols. Certain flower combinations (blooms) only appear on specific reels in this game.
The scatter icon is the butterfly and statue symbol. When three of these bonus icons appear on the third reel, the player will win 60x their total bet. Three of a different butterfly icon (or two plus the scatter, as the scatter counts as one butterfly icon), will trigger the Garden Bonus.
In Bloom’s Garden Bonus can see players pick flowers to win a number of free spins. Between 5 and 12 free spins can be won in this manner. During the free spins, only flower symbols from your chosen flower will appear on the reels, to maximise your wins.
After the free spins bonus game has ended, In Bloom will always trigger a Bonus Bump feature. Here the player can choose any item from a garden to pick up a multiplier of 1x to 50x your total bet. This is an added bonus, especially if you’ve had a satisfactory free spins bonus round!
