In Bloom is a 40 line slot by IGT with a flower garden theme. It appears to follow the latest fashion of having an optional extra feature that is only activated by making an extra bet over and above the max lines, but in fact the extra feature, Symbol Burst, is compulsory and you must bet 50 coins on 40 lines + feature. It is a very nice feature though; each of the flower symbols includes 4 buds and when a flower symbol is part of a winning combination some or even all of the buds may transform into extra flowers. The 4s and 5s can only appear on reel 3 and the 3s only on reels 2,3, and 4 making the maximum number of flowers a staggering 15 of a kind.
Something very like this has been done before with the double symbols in the Net Entertainment slot Flowers, but In Bloom develops the idea much further.
The Garden Bonus is triggered by getting 2 or three butterflies. The scatter symbol contains one butterfly and only appears on reel 3, but whenever just one of them comes up an extra butterfly may flutter in to trigger the bonus.
The first thing that happens in the bonus round is that you must choose one of the four flower symbols and this will be the only flower symbol that appears during the free spins. The higher scoring the symbol is, the fewer free spins you get, so basically you get to choose your own variance.
After the free spins there is an additional feature called Bonus Bump. This is a click and pick that awards a payout of 1 to 50 times the total bet from the spin that triggered the Garden Bonus.
