Surprisingly, Honey to the Bee is not the only online video slot inspired by these industrious little insects.
While quite colourful, Honey to the Bee is a very simple slot with limited special features, basic game play, and rudimentary graphics, sound, and animation. The reels are set in what appears to be a chunk of honeycomb, with a nature scene populated by a few trees and, of course, a hive of buzzing bees in the background.
Symbols featured in the Honey to the Bee slot include a slightly angry-looking blue-eyed worker bee, the green-eyed queen bee, a ladybird, some honey, a sunflower, and the usual high-value playing card symbols.
There is very little in the way of animation included in Honey to the Bee, with only the backgrounds of the symbols moving when they form part of a winning combination. Similarly, the soundtrack of Honey to the Bee is a simple tune that reminds one of elevator music, with the occasional nature sound complimenting the theme.
Betting Options and Jackpots on Offer
Although Honey to the Bee lacks visual and interactive appeal, inexperienced players are unlikely to mind because the game allows them to wager as little as 0.01 credits per spin with coin values going as high as 5.00 credits so high-rollers’ attention isn’t completely lost.
Honey to the Bee can also choose how many of the 20 paylines they want to enable, a decision which will require them to weigh the risk against the various possible jackpots on offer. The biggest standard win of 5000 coins in the game is paid out when four worker bee symbols appear on a single active payline. For players who selected the max bet of 5.00 credits, this means a payout of 25 000 credits.
In addition to this, the Honey to the Bee progressive jackpot, which often grows quite large, is also up for the taking and is triggered at random.
Wilds Draw Wins Like Bees to Honey
In addition to being the highest-paying symbol in Honey to the Bee Android slots online, the worker bee also acts as the game’s wild symbol. As such, the worker bee’s job is to stand in for any other symbol except the scatter to help create winning combinations.
Additionally, the Honey to the Bee wild comes with a 2x multiplier so it doubles all wins that it assists in earning.
Together with the Honey to the Bee scatter symbol, the worker bee also helps unlock the game’s special feature, which is explained at the end of this article.
A Hive of Scatter Activity
Honey to the Bee players should also be on the lookout for the beehive because this is the game’s scatter symbol. This means that the beehive pays out irrespective of where is appears on the reels and does so even if only two scatters are landed in a single spin. Honey to the Bee players who land five scatter symbols in a single spin could win up to 100 times their total wagers.
The Honey to the Bee Free Spins Feature
Although there is, strictly speaking, no proper bonus round in the Honey to the Bee slot, RTG has sweetened the deal somewhat with a free spins feature. This is activated when the worker bee appears anywhere on the reels at the same time as the beehive does.
Honey to the Bee players are then awarded 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier. An added bonus is that Honey to the Bee free spins can be re-triggered while in play.
