Beetle Mania Deluxe Slot Review
Beetle Mania Deluxe slot is a 5 reel 10 payline game created by Novomatic. The theme is bugs and other insects performing jazzy music. Don’t expect music from the British band of the 60s! In this entertaining game you will actually see insects playing instruments like the bass or dancing. Beetle Mania Deluxe slot offers the following features: scatter symbols, wild substitutions, a gamble feature and a free spin bonus.
The bee, snail, butterfly and caterpillar form winning combinations with just 2 symbols, 100 coins for the bee and 50 for the rest. The minimum bet amount is 40p and the maximum is £100.00 per spin for all 10 paylines. The most lucrative symbol in Beetle Mania Deluxe is the bee symbol – land 5 of them on an active payline and you win 500 times your stake.
The bee is a wild symbol which acts as a substitute for other symbols to complete winning combinations. Multiple bee wild symbols on an active payline form its own winning combination. The music note is a scatter symbol. The music note scatter symbol does not need to be on an active payline to make a winning combination.
The music note scatter symbol can be found anywhere on the reels to complete winning combinations, as long as you have at least 3 music note symbols in consecutive order on reels 1 to 3 – this triggers the Free Spins Bonus feature which gives you 10 free spins.
Now, if you get a beetle symbol on the middle reel during free spins, all your winnings starting from the first free spin till the last spin will be doubled. Additional free spins cannot be won unfortunately. When you have played your 10 free spins you are returned to the game and the coins won are added to your account.
There is also a standard Gamble feature where you choose red or black to double your winnings. Guess right and you will double your winnings but guess wrong and you lose it. You can gamble up to 5 times. I wouldn’t recommend it personally so I just select the auto play option and spin away.
Beetle Mania Deluxe will make you dance when you get a big win, but be aware that these big wins do not occur very often. I found that I won small amounts quite a lot with decent sized wins in the free spins feature most (just under 100 times your stake). It is a very entertaining game though but I prefer higher variance slots such as Book of Ra Deluxe or Katana.
