ELK Studios takes players to the bottom of the garden where creepy crawlies roam the reel set in its latest slot release, Buggin


Out now




Buggin is a 7×7 reel slot with cluster-pays of five or more identical symbols, offering a max win of x10,000 the player’s bet. 




94 per cent


Low value symbols come in the form of green leaves, blueberries, pink raspberries and red toadstools. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x3 the player’s wager. 

Meanwhile, green crickets, blue ants, pink snails and red ladybugs depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.3 and x100 the chosen bet. 

Bonus B scatters can appear, triggering the bonus game mode when three land on the same spin. Additionally, super bonus S scatters are available, triggering the super bonus game mode when one appears on the same spin as two or more bonus B scatters. 

Wild W symbols can also drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus scatters. 


Wins are formed in this slot when identical symbols appear in adjacent clusters of five or more, with payouts being provided for clusters as big as 12 symbols. 

Throughout the game, cascading wins occur causing winning symbols to disappear after providing their payouts, making way for new symbols to drop in from the top of the board. 

While most symbols will appear as standard 1×1-sized symbols, there is a chance for giant 2×2 or 3×3 symbols to appear, acting as four or six individual identical symbols, respectively. 

Additionally, all winning combinations that disappear are guaranteed to leave one wild symbol behind. 

If two wild symbols contribute to the same winning cluster, they will combine after the payout is provided. Merged wilds will gain a x2 multiplier, which increases if this wild ends up merging with other wilds. 

Two wilds with multipliers merging will cause their multipliers to be added together and presented on the single merged wild. 

Collecting wins on the same spin can activate the bonus wild meter that sits above the reel set, with three consecutive wins activating the first of five wild features. 

After three wins, one of five random wild features will be selected to appear after the next cascade. 

These wild features include: 

  • Big wilds that expands one randomly chosen standard symbol on the board and enlarges it to be either 2×2 or 3×3-sized 
  • Multiplying wilds that add a multiplier value to all wild symbols on the board that haven’t contributed to a win
  • Random wilds that replace between two and four standard symbols with wilds
  • Removing wilds that remove all the lowest-paying symbols from the board
  • Upgrading symbols that transform low value symbols to their high value colour counterparts

Furthermore, one of the five spaces on the wild meter will contain a keyhole embellishment. If enough wins occur on the same spin to reach this section of the wild meter, a special wild redrops feature will be activated, awarding a free respin with guaranteed wild features. 

In the bonus game mode, all wilds stay sticky on the reels for the duration of the game mode. The super bonus game mode will begin with a pre-filled wild meter, fast tracking the game mode’s wild features. 

Players are awarded seven free spins in the bonus and super bonus game modes, which can be bought for x100 or x500 the player’s stake, respectively, using Elk Studios’ X-iter bonus buy function.
