Cultivating a bumper crop of coins is the name of the game in Bonus Beans, an unusual and very playable slot from Push Gaming. These magic beans can also deliver free spins, multipliers and mystery coin bonuses. Available to play across all devices, play from between 30p and £250 per spin.
Bonus Beans is played using a 4 reel, 5 row game engine and features a selection of 5 brightly coloured symbol shapes. Instead of traditional paylines, winning combinations are formed when you land at least 3 of the same symbol horizontally or vertically (but not diagonally).
The winning symbols are then blasted off the reels and a new set of symbols will fall into their place – these cascades keep on coming as long as there’s a new winning formation on show. It’s possible to land multiple winning clusters. The precise payouts are determined by the exact type and number of symbols in the combination and range from 0.5 right up to 300 coins.
In addition to the standard symbols are a trio of Bonus Beans which can deliver some extra goodies – the pink bean is a multiplier which will double your payout when it appears. The green bean offers a mystery win prize. Finally, the blue bean awards 2 free spins. It’s possible to land different beans and multiples of the same bean on a single spin. Keep tabs of just what you’ve got via the meter to the right of the reels.
The biggest payouts are on offer for clearing the entire board of symbols. If you manage to achieve this, a prize of 500 times your stake will be making its way to the cashier.
That all may sound a little complex but Bonus Beans is actually a super simple game to play – there’s a hypnotic feel to the gameplay that’s akin to video games like Tetris. The design is bright and bold and the action fast paced, with plenty of smaller wins on offer. There are possibilities to win big too thanks to the big cluster payouts which, in combination with the bonus beans, can deliver some impressive results.
If you’re looking for a slot that offers something different from the norm, then Bonus Beans should do the trick. Get lucky and they can develop into a decent crop of coins too. If you like cluster wins, Aloha! Cluster Pays from Net Entertainment is highly recommended.
