FloridaMan Slot Review 2024

The term Florida Man has been an internet sensation for a while, but it’s no superhero as the name might suggest, and it’s not even a single man. The birth of Florida man may have started in 2013 when a Twitter account began posting bizarre news headlines outlining the eccentric escapades of men from the Sunshine State. The concept evolved into a broader phenomenon because of how bizarre and hilarious some of the headlines were.

Some stories were so strange that they’re almost not believable, but the meme has become so popular that you could throw any headline you wanted into the mix, and people would believe it as long as it’s preceded by ‘Florida Man’.

We’re surprised the slot didn’t come sooner, but AvatarUX has stepped up to bring FloridaMan to the reels. Infamous primarily for their selection of PopWins slots, FloridaMan stands out as a stark contrast for them.

Can they pull it off?

Zap Reel

Located above the main reel set, the Zap Reel is an additional horizontal reel displaying regular-paying symbols that connect and form win lines with the main reel set.

Positions 3 and 4 on the Zap Reel do not contain regular symbols, occupied by the Wild Jail, where unused Wilds are held. Alongside regular symbols, special Multiplier symbols can appear on the Zap Reel. Multipliers are applied to all wins that occur during this time. Multipliers add together when 2 or more are applied to the same win.

Mystery Splits

Randomly, the Mystery Splits feature can occur in the Base Game and Free Spins round. Once in view, Mystery Split symbols will expand the reels by 2 or 3 symbols and reveal copies of the same randomly drawn symbol. With the next paid spin, the reel heights reset.

FloridaMan Attack

During a game round, the Floridaman Attack feature can trigger. At the end of the spin, a random number of High-paying symbols will transform into Floridaman Wilds for the following spin. If this feature occurs in the base game, a Respin is awarded. If a Floridaman Wild does not contribute towards a win, it is collected from the reels and stored in the Wild Jail.

Jailed Wilds

All unclaimed Floridaman Wilds are stored in the Wild Jail on the Zap Reel. Randomly, in the base game, the collected Floridaman Wilds can be released onto the main reel set. During Free Spins, all collected Floridaman Wilds will be released in one go on the final spin.

Free Spins

Triggering Free Spins requires 3 Bonus Scatters to land in the base game. Before the Free Spins round begins, you will have the option to participate in 1 of 2 gamble modes; Collect Wheel or Gamble Wheel.

The Collect Wheel randomly rolls a number of Free Spins and starting Ways for the free spins round. However, the Gamble Wheel offers players a chance to upgrade their current Free Spins for a higher tier of free spins and ways. Please note, that the Gamble Wheel does allow players to lose their gamble and walk away empty-handed. (40% Win/ 60% Lose ratio)

Conclusion

FloridaMan is of exceptional build quality with diverse and interesting features, though it’s not quite as Floridian as it could be. If FloridaMan were a creation of Nolimit City instead, then you’d safely assume that it would be borderline out of order.

AvatarUX takes a tamer approach. The FloridaMan here is certainly misbehaving, but he’s not getting drunk, fighting gators, stealing spaceships and then crashing it into the Everglades only to come out unscathed and ready to cause more mischief. Despite this, FloridaMan is a great slot and a nice change of pace from the persistent PopWins title that AvatarUX is known for.

With ample features like Zap Reels, Mystery Splits, FloridaMan attacks and Jailed Wilds, FloridaMan comes out strong as a slot that is anything but boring. Free Spins expands on the features so far for an even sunnier experience, and the maximum 20,000x win potential gives players yet another reason to try it out.
