Lady Luck Games has taken on a much-loved US comic strip character from Camp Swampy in the studio’s first-ever branded slot release in partnership with King Features Syndicate, Beetle Bailey.
Beetle Bailey is a 4×3 reel slot with 81-winways and a maximum win of up to x500 the player’s bet.

Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with J through to A. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x0.6 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on a single spin.
Medium value symbols are represented by different characters from the Beetle Bailey series, with Cookie, Miss Buxley and Platoon Sergeant Orville P. Snorkel. If the right amount of paying combinations land in one go then these symbols can offer between x0.6 and x1.6 the player’s stake.
Beetle Bailey himself depicts the highest-value symbol, offering between x0.8 and x3 the player’s stake if the right amount of symbols land on a payline.
Wild symbols are also included, represented by paper stamps. These wilds substitute for all paying symbols apart from the bonus symbols.
Furthermore, the bonus symbol is represented by a golf club that will trigger the golf bonus game if one lands on reels one and four simultaneously.
Sleepy beetle and shouty Sarge symbols can land on reels two and three respectively. If both of these symbols land on the board at once, then the wild wake up feature is activated.
With the wild wake up feature, the characters Beetle and Sarge will start a wild fist-fight. When the fight finishes, between three and six wilds will be revealed on reels two and three.
In the golf bonus game, players can drive around different sections of Camp Swampy, picking up cash prizes by rolling a dice to move between one and six places at a time. Landing on a tile with a golf ball will yield cash prizes, whereas landing on a grenade will cause the player to come away with nothing.
Players also have the opportunity to buy either of these bonus game modes for the price of a significantly increased bet.
Finally, players can gamble each winning payout in the base game by selecting the deck of cards gamble button. Players have to select what colour a random card will be. If they guess the colour correctly, then they will double their winnings, guessing wrong will cause them to lose their payout.
To enhance this gamble feature, players can select what exact suit they believe the card will be and guessing correctly will quadruple their winnings.
