A fluke is a chance occurrence:
1. A stroke of good luck.
2. A chance occurrence; an accident.
3. Games An accidentally good or successful stroke in billiards or pool.
So, more than a fluke means that something was more than simple luck. It is not really an idiom as such, more of a natural expression. In the same way as you would say it is more than his age or it is more than a car or whatever. It is a typical usage of a fairly common word.
