Bee Hive Bonanza was released by NetEnt in 2022 and is their first scatter pays slot.
The game uses a very colorful bee theme.
You will find 5 reels that are each 5 symbols high. And the game pays as scatter pays, 6 or more of the same symbols anywhere on screen will pay.
Besides all normal symbols you will also find bee symbols with cash values and bonus symbols. No wilds.
Winning symbols are removed from the grid and the all other symbols fall down. New symbols fall on top to create the option for another win.
In both the base game and the free spins feature bee symbols will have a random cash value of x1, x2, x5 or x10.
These values are collected when one or more beehive symbols appear at the same time.
These beehives can be normal, multiplier or adder beehives.
More than one beehive might appear at the same time. After the values are collected all bees and beehives are removed from the reels and an avalanche occurs.
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively.
During free spins the Money Bee Feature is also still active.
Also any scatter symbol appearing during free spins is collected into a special meter next to the reels. Collect a total of 3, 6, 9 and 12 scatter symbols and receive a x2, x3, x4 and x5 multiplier respectively. Which applies to all current wins.
Also each new multiplier reached will add 2 more free spins.
Some casinos offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet. This will randomly award 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
I think NetEnt created a great new slot game that feels a bit different for this provider. I don’t think they have a scatter pays slot. And I like that they chose this for their new game. It’s something different.
The theme is very colorful and just fun. I think a bee theme is always nice.
And the game comes with enough bonuses and features to keep you interested and keep the game going.
