Fly into a hive and try and buzz off with some sweet tasting treats in Bee Land, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. Goodies on offer in this apian adventure are a pick me round where you can win up to 120 times your stake and a bonus feature that awards a dozen free spins with 3x, 5x or 10x multipliers. Play from between 20p and £100 per spin.
Despite being released a number of years ago, the design in Bee Land is still pretty fresh – a cartoon garden forms the backdrop to the reels. Symbols include cleaner bees, cop bees, dancer bees, artist bees and guitarist bees.
Higher up the food chain are traffic lights, lantern, flower and bee colony. 5 of the latter will get you a payout of 1,000 coins. The crown is the wild – it substitutes for everything apart from the bonus and scatter. Both of these trigger bonus features:
Honey Queen Bonus feature – to trigger this, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the wild flower symbol on an active payline. It’s a 3 level, pick me round. First pick 1 of the 6 flowers. The queen bee will then collect the pollen in her bag. You’ll be taken to a new screen a given a selection of 3 pollen machines where you pick 1.
This will reveal a coin prize or a game over. Pick a coin prize and you’ll go to the final level. Choose from 1 of the hives. There’ll be a big prize hiding behind 1 and a game over behind the rest. The prizes from each level is saved so you’ll always win something here – up to 120 times your stake.
Free Spin Bonus feature – land 3, 4 or 5 honey-making machines anywhere on the reels to trigger this feature. Here you’ll be awarded 12 free spins complete with a 3x, 5x or 10x multiplier depending on how many scatters activated the feature. 3 scatters gives you a 3x multiplier whilst 4 gives you a 5x multiplier. If you’re lucky enough to get 5 scatters, you will benefit from a massive 10x multipliers.
The Honey Queen Bonus feature hits more regularly of the 2 features. Our biggest win came via the free spins round though when we managed to trigger the Honey Queen Bonus feature. We pocketed well over 150 times our total stake. Don’t expect such big numbers all the time of course – the pick em bonus delivered consistent prizes of around 30 times our stake.
We enjoyed Bee Land much more than expected. The visuals are nicely done and there’s a catchy backing track. It’s the features that impressed the most though. Both the pick ’em and free spins offer plenty of potential. Get lucky there and Bee Land can certainly leave you buzzing. If you like big multipliers in free spins features, NextGen Gaming’s 300 Shields has a potential 300x multiplier on offer!
