SlotBeats is buzzing as NetEnt’s pollinating party wins SOTW honour

The worker bees at SlotBeats are feeling as sweet as honey after giving Bee Hive Bonanza, the latest release from NetEnt, its latest Slot of the Week award. 

As a 5×5 reel slot, the title offers players prolific payouts in the form of scatter-pays, creating the chance of a maximum win of x5,000 the player’s preferred bet. 

This format means symbols can land anywhere on the reels to give out a win, as long as there is a minimum of six identical symbols at once. 

“Bee Hive Bonanza players will love the oh-so-sweet reactions between the different types of hive and bee symbols,” explained James Jones, Head of Business Development at Evolution, NetEnt’s parent company.

“The team has created a mediaeval, greenery-surrounded world where bee knights humbly serve the royal bee while ensuring that the pots are always full of honey. 

“Bee Hive Bonanza is an entertaining example of fable meeting fun in a great gaming experience.”

Money bees land on the reels with a cash value that is either x1, x2, x5 or x10 the player’s stake. If they land on the reels at the same time as a beehive then the beehive will collect its cash value and provide it to the player.

Bee hive symbols with adder or multiplier features will either increase the value of money bees by the price of the bet value or multiply the money bee cash value by two. 

Additionally, honey pot symbols can drop onto the reels. Landing three, four or five of these symbols in a single spin will award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively.

With the free spins feature, additional scatters that land on the reels will be collected before disappearing in a cascade. Collecting more than three scatters during the free spins will award two more free spins with a select multiplier to be attributed to the final free spins payout.
