Playing the slot game Beetle Frenzy is like playing in a garden from an old story book, with cartoon like graphics. There are lots of garden symbols, a lady bug, a milkweed bug, a stink bug and a beetle. There is a selection of flowers, in pink and blue and orange, and some purple mushrooms. The eyes of all the bugs move whenever a winning combination is made, and there is a cheerful tune played with every spin. Beetle Frenzy is a classic game by Net Entertainment, offering easy game play.
This game has nine reels and five pay lines, and looks like the old style arcade machine. It is unlike the old casino slots machines, however, in that Beetle Frenzy has multiple features and bonus games which gives you plenty of chances to win prizes.
A Firefly and a Golden Apple
The Wild symbol is a yellow and black firefly that lights up whenever it is activated, and the Wild can replace any symbol in a winning combination. The Scatter symbol is a golden Apple, and the number of golden Apples you find on the reels will determine the number of your multiplier. Two golden Apples on a reel will earn you a multiplier of two on your wins, but if you manage to find eight golden Apple Scatters on the reels, your winnings will be multiplied a massive four hundred times.
Three Fun Bonus Games
There are three bonus games in Beetle Frenzy which are fun to play. There is a Bug Collector Game that is triggered by landing on three glass jars on one pay line. That in turn activates a new screen with nine bug jars in front of you. You pick them up one at a time to see what cash prize you have won. If you choose a jar and find an X symbol, the Bug Collector Game will be over.
Then there is the Flower Frenzy Bonus game, which will appear if you find three flowers symbols of the same colour. Another new screen will appear with a 2 by 2 reel edged with a range of small symbols. Press the Spin button to reveal four new symbols, each worth a different cash prize. When you spin the reels, a light will travel around the edge of the screen, and if it lands on a match you will win that bonus. If it lands on an X, the game will be over.
Finally in Beetle Frenzy there is a Lucky Spin bonus round. This bonus round does not often appear, but it is triggered if you land the same symbol on the four corners or in the middle square on each of the four sides. This bonus gives you an extra spin on the middle reel for each activating combination.
Beetle Frenzy features NetEnt’s new autoplay feature, so you can set the game for the number of rounds you wish to play.
A Huge Jackpot for Nine Identical Symbols
If you find nine identical symbols on your screen at any time you win a huge jackpot. The smallest jackpot is given to the player finding nine assorted insects at one time, and that is a multiplier of fifteen times. The jackpots will increase by fifties and hundreds until you reach the biggest jackpot of all, which is a multiplier of five hundred times your winnings if you find nine blue flowers appearing on your screen at one time.
