Can you plant the seeds of success and grow your budget significantly with this GROW slot? Maybe not, but it’s a fun snack none-the-less.
With 10 rows of fruity symbols, this vegetable patch of a game reaches up to the sky with plants and piles of dirt littering these 5 reels.
It’s a gardeners dream, but with just a touch of magic that (we suspect) every green-fingered lady and sir would wish they had available – namely magical fast-growing beans that open up literal treasure chests in the sky.
You can play this Grow mobile slot in landscape mode, but it’s really better suited for portrait mode. In short, especially as the graphics aren’t quite as good as the online video slot, you are better off playing this as an Android or iOS game.
Every bet you make adds to the pot of treasures at the top of the reels. This is not one of the progressive slots like Mega Fortune Dreams, we should point out. The amount on the top of the game is based purely on how much YOU are betting over time, and will reset the next time you open up the game.
When a golden bee symbol shows up it adds 2x your bet to the chest. And when a fertiliser symbol lands, those magical beanstalks will grow, getting you one step closer to the Treasures above.
Sounds exciting? It really isn’t. Despite the 10 rows of stacked symbols over 5 reels, the base game is a little slow. The wins are fairly unexciting, even with 50 paylines, and you are just very slowly watching beanstalks grow, and that pot getting a little bit bigger with each spin.
Much like gardening, patience is key with this Grow slot online. You have a base game that is very much dependent on those treasure chests for excitement.
Then you have a free spin bonus round where, other than the fact that you go from day time to night time, nothing much seems to be happening.
And whilst the game doesn’t seem to say explicitly, we’ve experienced slightly richer reels here. Not huge amounts, but if we were going to get multiple wins over any of the 50 paylines, it’s going to be in the free spins.
This isn’t a fast-paced slot game, but neither is it particularly aggressive, meaning that newcomers will be able to enjoy a vast and seemingly complicated machine, but without losing too much out of your budget.
This Grow slot review won’t be getting more than 3 stars, because, in the end, we can’t see ourselves spending more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time, or maybe even coming back. But if you come across it, it’s got enough here for a few fun spins.

Wild: The chilli wild will replace any other symbol in order to create a win.
Golden Bee Symbol: When one or more Golden Bee symbol lands on the reel set, an additional cash amount will be added to the corresponding chest. A 2x total bet will be added to the chest above the reel that it lands. If the bee lands on reel 1 and 5, it will increase the prize on the first or last chest respectively.
G.R.O.W and the Treasure: When this symbol lands on the reels, whether during the base game and the free spins, the fertiliser will cause the beanstalk to grow, leaving behind the tile on the reels. Each reel will have a specific beanstalk, and when you grow it 10 times, it opens up a chest.
You have 4 chests, and each chest hides a cash value. This is calculated based on your current stake, and the average of bets, in addition to any amount awarded from the golden bee symbols. Once it's triggered, this starts all over again.
Bonus Symbol: Only appears on reels 1, 2 and 5 during the free spins, which will trigger 10 free spins. You can retrigger this feature during the bonus game, and they are added automatically. You get a new set of reels, at night, which seem a little richer.
We're not sure how we feel about this Grow slot on mobile. The graphics don't feel as sharp as they should be, and despite the fun beanstalk feature the wins are pretty minimal.
Yet we can't deny that opening those chests gave us a little bit of hope, and plenty of potential for bigger wins, despite the fact that 10 rows of symbols don't give you much back.
Much like the free spins, this is a fun game that spins quickly, passes the time, but ultimately you won't grow anything satisfying.
A good Williams slot for when you have 5 minutes to spare, but we'd probably still rather play on the Flowers slot game by NetEnt.
