Leading game developer NetEnt has announced the release of its latest video slot, Bee Hive Bonanza.
The brand-new casino game whisks you away to a medieval countryside filled with hills and blooming flowers, and it sees you help peculiar Bee Knights as they ready themselves for honey and riches to impress the Royal Bee queen.
Bee Hive Bonanza is set on a 5×5 grid with a cluster pays mechanic, and it has an RTP of 96.09% with high volatility, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones.
The game requires a bet of between £0.10 and £200, and symbols include various bee symbols, goblets, and several multicoloured bee emblem symbols.
Bee Hive Bonanza is available at most mobile casinos in the United Kingdom, including SlotsMillion, Videoslots, PlayOJO, 44Aces, Playjango, Casumo, Fun Casino, Casimba, All British Casino, and more.
The Bee Hive Bonanza slot comes with several special features. For example, rather than using paylines, the game uses the Cluster Pays mechanic, where you’ll need to make clusters of six or more identical symbols to make a win.
All symbols that form a winning cluster, all bee symbols in the Money Bee feature, and all collected Scatter symbols in the Free Spins mode, explode and disappear from the slot’s reels. New symbols fall in their place, and if these make wins, the avalanche continues until no new wins are made.
During the main game and in the Free Spins mode, bee symbols with values of 1x, 2x, 5x or 10x your bet can randomly appear. This triggers the Money Bee feature, where every bee symbol with at least one Beehive, Adder Beehive or Multiplier Beehive disappears from the reels and its value is added to each Beehive on the reels to award the respective win.
With Beehive symbols, the values of all Bee symbols on the reels are added to it; Multiplier Beehives multiplies the values of all Bee symbols by 2x before they’re added to Beehives; and Adder Beehives increase the values of all Bee symbols before they’re added to Beehives.
Landing three or more Scatter symbols triggers 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the Free Spins mode, Scatter symbols that appear on the reels are collected into the collect meter and then disappear from the reels. Every three collected Scatter symbols award two additional spins and a Multiplier up to 5x.
Finally, the Bee Hive Bonanza slot comes with a Buy Feature, which allows you to immediately activate the Free Spins mode for 100x your bet. When triggered, one free spin will play to randomly award 10, 15 or 20 spins.
In a statement, James Jones, the Head of Business Development at Evolution, said: “Bee Hive Bonanza players will love the oh-so-sweet reactions between the different types of Hive and Bee symbols.
“The team has created a medieval, 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.”
