Yggdrasil and Reflex Gaming’s latest collaborative slot release welcomes players to a tranquil garden teeming with not-so-creepy crawlies in Bugs Money.
Bugs Money is a 5×3 reel slot with 10-paylines and a maximum win of up to x55,028 the player’s bet.
95.5 per cent
Low value symbols come in the form of playing card suits, with diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs. If the right amount of paying combinations land in one go, these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x5 the player’s stake.
Next up, flowers and blue butterflies depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.5 and x40 the player’s preferred bet.
Ladybugs and pink butterflies represent the high value symbols for this title. These symbols can offer between x0.5 and x100, depending on the number of paying combinations that fall on one turn.
Furthermore, scatter text symbols are available, triggering one of four free spins options that the player can choose from if three or more appear on the same spin. Landing three, four or five scatters at once will also provide payouts of x8, x40 or x200 respectively.
Finally, wild potion bottles can appear, substituting for all symbols other than the free spins scatter. If two, three, four or five wilds appear in a winning combination, they will award respective payouts of x1, x10, x40 or x100.
When triggering the free spins feature, players have four bonus game modes to choose from.
On each free spin, a random multiplier will enhance each spin, with the range of multipliers decided by each game mode that the players can select.
The first game mode provides three free spins with x5, x10, x20 and x50 multipliers available, while option two provides seven free spins with a multiplier range of x3, x5, x10 and x20.
If players select the third option, they will receive 10 free spins with multipliers of x2, x3, x5 and x10 and option four provides 15 free spins with x1, x2, x3 and x5 multipliers available.
During the free spins feature, queen bee wilds can land on the third reel. When this occurs, the active multiplier for that spin will be multiplied by 10, increasing the win potential of each bonus game spin the queen bee lands on.
While enhancing the current multiplier ten-fold, this queen bee wild will substitute for all symbols other than the free spins scatter.
Landing three or more scatters on the same free spin, the free spins feature that the player selected will be retriggered with the initial number of spins added to the free spins total with the same multiplier range.
Moreover, players can activate the golden bet feature during the base game to increase their chances of landing scatter symbols by increasing each bet size by 50 per cent.
WHAT THEY SAY
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, stated: “Bugs Money is a playful, fun and vibrant title with straightforward yet engaging game play.
“Our partnership with Reflex Gaming has been fantastic to date with over 10 titles launched and we are excited to introduce yet another premium game to our wide operator network.”
“This game has been a lot of fun to create. It’s another original concept from our studio,” added Mat Ingram, CPO at Reflex Gaming.
“Despite the tranquil setting, it can quickly turn volatile. The free spins can dramatically increase the volatility by offering a super volatile mode. Allowing players to set their own volatility in the free spins feature offers greater engagement and ensures the title appeals to a wide demographic.”
