Bring Some Weed Killer Because It Is Florageddon!

Want to play an exciting online pokie that revolves around a plant-based apocalypse? Then Yggdrasil's Florageddon is right up your street.

Online pokies depicting the end of the world are nothing new. Pokies developers love an apocalypse theme or a poker machine filled with zombies. However, a pokie where plants have taken over the world is a new one even for us. But that is exactly what Florageddon is about, the new Yggdrasil machine available at Wild Tornado Casino.

Yggdrasil has a reputation for creating excellent machines, online mobile pokies that are fun and memorable. Florageddon ticks both those boxes and more. It is a little bit crazy, OK, more than a little bit crazy but that is typical of Yggdrasil. Want to know more about Florageddon? Then continue reading our impartial review.

Florageddon Fundamentals

Florageddon is the latest online pokie from the fun-loving Yggdrasil team. Think along the lines of the hit musical Little Shop of Horrors and you are not too far away. The graphics and music are sinister without being scary; Florageddon is the perfect Halloween pokie, even if that day has since passed.

You find a high variance maths model underneath the colourful graphics, which is coupled to a very average RTP of 96%. Be warned, Florageddon comes with RTP ranges, so make sure you play the version with the highest RTP.

The game uses 243 winlines, and they run both ways. This means you tend not to wait very long for a winning spin. However, most base game wins are on the smaller side.

While there is no traditional jackpot on this machine, it is possible to win 20,000x your stake. This equates to $4,000 at the lowest $0.20 per spin and a cool $2,000,000 at the highest $100 stakes.

What Are The Florageddon Symbols?

The brilliantly drawn and animated Florageddon symbols relate to a plant-based apocalypse. It appears only royals, jacks through aces, clocks, road signs, fire hydrants, and lampposts have survived the planty onslaught. All those mentioned symbols are at the lower end of the payout scale.

Plants make up the highest value symbols. The red plant, in particular, pays between 0.8x and 5x for landing three or five symbols.

Symbol                              Match 3       4           5

Red Plant                            0.8x           2x          5x

Purple Plant                         0.5x           1.25x      2x

Green Plant                         0.3x          0.8x        1.25x

Blue Plant                           0.3x           0.6x        1.0x

Fire hydrant/lamppost         0.25x          0.5x        0.8x

Clock/road sign                   0.2x           0.4x        0.6x

Royals                                0.1x           0.3x         0.5x

Wilds are present and correct, and easily identifiable. As are the Bonus symbols that trigger the free spins round. More on that shortly.

What Are The Game’s Bonuses and Features?

Winning symbols disappear and new symbols drop in their place. Enjoying four consecutive dropdowns fills a Special Award bar that grants you one of four features.

Double Wild spawns a pair of wilds in empty positions instead of only one. Multiplier Boost increases both of the game’s multipliers by +10, while Wild Stack gifts you three wilds on a reel in addition to three wilds on the reel strip above for the next drop down. Finally, Extra Life clears the 5×3 grid of all symbols when your dropdown sequence ends.

Matching 3, 4, or 5 scatters triggers the Bonus Round, where 7, 9, or 11 free spins await. It is possible to gamble for up to 16 free spins, but you lose the entire feature if you lose, so it probably is not worth the risk.

Free spins take place on the same board, but the Special Award bar only requires three straight dropdowns to fill, adding to the excitement. Furthermore, the multipliers do not reset during the free spins round, so the potential for massive wins is there.

Some jurisdictions allow for the purchasing of the free spins round. 100x your stake grants you 3, 4 or 5 scatters, while 400x your stake comes with 16 free spins. In addition, the Golden Bet option increases your stake by 50% but decreases the number of dropdowns required for the special award.


We had a great time playing Florageddon and did not want our session to end. The high variance and average RTP is not to everyone’s taste, and we would recommend taking advantage of casino bonuses to help lessen the dry spells you inevitably experience.

A 20,000x top prize is worth chasing, for sure. The game comes alive during the free spins round because the largest wins wait inside here. However, the base game is a little tight with its wins. Again, such a machine is not for everyone.
