Beetle Frenzy Slots

Beetle-FrenzyBeetle Frenzy is one of those games where you can’t stop yourself from saying “awww”. It’s that cute, with its various small bugs and flowers filling the reels and making this a feel good title that I recommend you don’t ignore. The theme is clearly designed recently, the graphics being clean, colorful and modern. However, you will notice that it takes the form of a 3 reel slot machine, looking like a pub slot, complete with the various betting controls and displays that a game like this might have.

Though it looks like a 3 reel slot machine, it behaves like it has 9 reels, as you will notice yourself when they are spinning. Only 5 paylines are included on these reels, with the best prize being worth about $2,500. There are multiple bonus games, scatter symbols and wilds, all decent features to have in a game with so few reels.

Features of Beetle Frenzy

You will find that despite its classic influence, the game is not simple, offering a scatter symbol and a wild among its features, plus two different bonus games.

The Wild Bug is going to substitute for the other symbols that the game has to offer. There isn’t much to say about it except that, as it doesn’t have any extras to give you.


The Lucky Spin is triggered whenever you have all four corners of the screen holding the same symbol, or when the middle position of the four sides do the same. One additional spin is offered for the middle reel.

Up to 9 symbols of the same kind can be present on the screen, in which case there are some very special payouts awarded, including a Super Win (for 9 golden apple symbols). The rest of the time the prizes are offered for combinations of three symbols.


Bug Collector

This is the first of the two bonus games that you can get from Beetle Frenzy. Whenever you get on the same payline three symbols with glass jars on them, the bonus game begins. You get as many bonus games as there are paylines active that round.

Flower Frenzy

The second bonus game requires three flowers to appear on a payline, with the same color. You get the bonus game, plus a prize. Three blue flowers will get you 3x the bet, pink flowers get you 2x the bet and yellow flowers have 1x the bet as a prize.

Betting options and jackpots

With up to 5 paylines selectable, the player is allowed to activate as many as he wants and to use a smaller or higher number of coins in each case (1 to 5 possible per line). The 25 coins used by Beetle Frenzy in its maximum bet have denominations between $0.10 and $1, so the most you are allowed to spend is $25 for one spin.

If you get seriously lucky, you can expect combinations with up to 500x the line bet in prizes, or up to $2,500/2,500 coins. It’s not a lot of money, but keep in mind that the wagers aren’t terribly high either.

Design and symbols

The design is one of the best things about this game, with its 9 reels that look like they are just three. You can see that each symbol is on its own reel by looking at the movement of the symbols when you spin the reels. The outer area is filled with small bugs and flowers, but the overall look is still that of a casino slot machine, as you can see where it ends and the potted plants that sit nearby. There are all sorts of cute bugs, jars, fruits and toadstools among its symbols, all icons of the highest quality.

Symbols: Glass Jar (bonus), Flowers (bonus), Black Bug (wild), Golden Apple (scatter, 400x), Blue Flower (500x), Pink Flower (400x), Ladybug (400x), Yellow Flower (300x), Yellow Bug (300x), Toadstool (200x), Blue Bug (100x) and Green Bug (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’d say so, at least if you want to see one of the best looking 3 reel games every made. Its cuteness level is off the charts, it has quite a few features for a game of this type, but I’m not crazy at all about its best prizes.

Beetle Frenzy can be found at any Net Entertainment casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
