Low value symbols come in the form of playing card suits, with spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts. If the right number of matching combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.4 and x4 the player’s bet.
Honey dippers and flowers depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.8 and x6 the player’s preferred stake.
Three honey-bee female characters, known as the three Annas, represent the high value symbols. These symbols can offer between x1.6 and x15 the player’s bet, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on one spin.
Free spins text scatters can drop into play, triggering the free spins feature if three or more scatters land on the same spin.
If prize pot symbols land on the reels, they will be collected in a meter above the board. Collecting 10, 20, 30 or 40 prize pots on one spin will award respective payouts of x20, x50, x200 or x500 the player’s bet.
Finally, bonus text symbols are available, activating the trail bonus game mode if three or more appear on the same spin.
Hot Hot Honey is a scatter-paying slot release, meaning that symbols will payout no matter the combination as long as at least five identical symbols appear on the same spin.
When five identical symbols appear at once, these symbols will become sticky on the reels while the rest of the board respins, giving a chance of landing further symbols of the same variety on the reels to increase each winning spin’s win potential.
Scatters and bonus symbols that land during this base game respin feature will be collected in meters beside the reels, triggering their respective features if three or more symbols are collected in each tally.
With the free spins feature, the amount of free spins awarded will match the amount of scatters that triggered the game mode, providing a minimum of three free spins.
In the trail bonus game, players enter a board-game style game mode in which they spin to reveal a number between one and six, representing how many spaces the bee character will move along the board.
Each space on the board can offer multiplied bet amount prizes between x1 and x20 that are awarded when the player lands on top of one, go-back bees that send players back between one and six spaces and spider ninjas that end the feature.
Players can buy access to the standard bonus trail game for the price of x66 their stake, while trail bonus buy game modes two and three are also on offer, providing extra features to appear on the board.
If players choose to buy access to trail bonuses two or three, they can select a mode that provides mystery prize pots on the board, offering randomly selected prizes between x50 and x500.
Bonus buy trail game modes two and three also offer heart symbols that provide an extra life to allow players to survive ninja spiders. Wings are also available through bonus buy trail game modes two and three, doubling the amount of moves awarded on the next spin to allow players to move up to 12 spaces at once.
In all trail game modes, players are provided a grand prize of x1,000 on top of their accumulated earnings if they reach the final space on the board.
WHAT THEY SAY
David Stoveld, COO of Armadillo Studios, said: “I’m so excited about Hot Hot Honey. Speaking to our customers there is a huge buzz about the game, and they can’t wait to offer it to their players. It has amazing graphics, crisp sound, great maths, and uses our signature Trail Bonus mode with board game features that players are familiar with and love coming back to time and again. I can’t wait to see how players will receive the three-bee Anna combo.”
