Honey Rush is powered by Play ‘N Go and is played on a hexagonal grid from 20p to £100 per spin across all devices including smartphones and tablets. With a bee/honey theme, you charge meters to add sticky wilds and get clusters of symbols added as big as 37 symbols – the wilds also come with multipliers up to 3x.
Honey Rush: Demo
Honey Rush Theme/Symbols
Visually, Honey Rush has cartoon style graphics and is set amongst a woodland – with the reels in a hexagonal shape to represent a honeycomb cell. You’ll see 4, 5, 6, 7, 6, 5 and 4 symbols in a hexagon formation. Symbols include 4 different flowers, bronze, silver and gold coins as well as a diamond.
There’s also a honey pot wild which substitutes for all symbols. You can form winning combinations by getting 5 or more adjacently connected symbols in a cluster. The diamond is the most lucrative symbol with 35 or more giving you a 200 times stake payout. When you get a win, the winning symbols are removed – new symbols then fall from above to fill the empty spaces – this allows for new wins to be created.
Rush Meter feature
Furthermore, all winning combinations will contribute to the Rush Meter feature – when a charge level is complete, respective features are added to the queue. If the meter is fully charged and no more wins are possible, the next feature in the queue will be triggered. The meter is resent at the end of each spin. Here are details on the 4 charge levels:
- Level 1: charged with 20 winning symbols. This triggers the Drone Colony before adding 1 sticky wild symbol to the grid.
- Level 2: charged with 40 winning symbols. This activates the Drone Colony before adding 1 sticky wild symbol to the grid.
- Level 3: charged with 80 winning symbols. This activates the Drone Colony before adding 1 sticky wild symbol to the grid.
- Level 4: charged with 160 winning symbols. This activates the Queen Colony only.
Now, the Colony feature is triggered randomly on non-winning spins or via the Rush Meter feature. Once in action, the symbol is the middle of the grid is chosen and then cloned to create a new winning cluster. There are 3 types of Colony extras to benefit from:
- Drone – gives you a cluster of at least 7 symbols
- Worker – creates a cluster of between 7 and 15 symbols. This is triggered, at random, on non-winning spins.
- Queen – gives you a cluster of between 20 and 37 symbols.
When it comes to the sticky wild symbol above, it obviously substitutes for all symbols – added via the Rush Meter feature only, it will appear on the second ring of symbols from the outside. It can come with multipliers of 1x, 2x and 3x. When it’s part of a winning cluster, the sticky wild will change position to an empty nearby position before new symbols fall into place. This gives you another chance to win. You can benefit from up to 3 sticky wilds at any one time.
High variance – 9,000 x stake wins
Honey Rush may seem a little complicated – it’s all about forming winning clusters of 5 or more matching symbols. The bigger the cluster, the bigger the payout. The more consecutive wins you get, the more sticky wilds you’ll have on the reels – these will come with multipliers up to 3x. With various spins available, this highly volatile slot can reward you to the tune of 9,000 times your stake from each spin (which includes all spins from consecutive wins).
Honey Rush isn’t a traditional slot by any means – I recommend you try playing the game for free (above) to get your head around the mechanic. Saying that, it’s well designed and has the potential for huge wins if you get enough sticky wilds/multipliers. If you want high variance slots, Play ‘N Go provides plenty of these – my pick would be Firefly Frenzy or Wild Rails.
