Love Bugs Slots

Love-BugsLove Bugs is one of those cute slots that you can’t help but give a chance, even if you’re not particularly interested in the theme. Like the name suggests, love is a big part of its theme, the two protagonists being two bugs of different kinds. A grasshopper (called a Love Bug here) seems to be in love with a Lady Bug. They’re both present in the game and the rest of the pictures show you typical stuff for a Valentines Day game. Wager Gaming has developed this particular slot machine.

On the 5 reels of Love Bugs, the wagers will activate a maximum of 25 lines. On these lines, you get both regular and special feature symbols, among the latter being the scatter symbol and the wild. The wild is also the one that can trigger the bonus game, inside which you can get free spins or multipliers. The $50,000 top jackpot adds to the excitement and it’s a good target to have.

Features of Love Bugs

You get two wild symbols from Love Bugs, as both bug symbols act this way, plus a scatter symbol and the bonus feature.

First of all, we have the wild symbols, represented by the Lady Bug and the Love Bug. Each one gets its own reel, so the 1st reel can get the Lady Bug, while the 5th reel has Love Bug on it. Both of them can take the place of other symbols, so their substitution powers are the ones that every other wild has. They will not replace a scattered Heart, but any other symbol is fair game.


A Love Heart is also considered a special symbol, acting as the scatter and being the only one with this particular power in this case. What a scatter brings to the table is its ability to offer prizes even when it’s not on a typical payline. You simply need multiple scatters to appear in random locations during the same spin, which will be enough to bring you prizes of up to 100x the wager.

Bonus Game

The slot’s only bonus game requires both wilds to be present. Each one needs to be on its own reel during the same spin, so Love Bug should be on the 5th, while Lady Bug is on the 1st.

You see them floating on the Venice Canal during the feature that comes next, where they both catch the prizes which come down from the four bridges that they go under. You can win free spins this way, if you get the Necklace prize, or you can get a multiplier for all the prizes of the bonus feature, if you get a Diamond Ring.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system in Love Bugs is the standard one from Wager Gaming, allowing for $0.01 to $250 to be used for each spin. The denomination of the one coin that the line gets is one factor, the range being $0.01 to $10. The second decision you have to make is in regards to the number of active lines, as that determines the number of coins as well.

You win up to 5,000 coins in this game, and since the coins go up to $10 you can win up to $50,000 from them.

Design and symbols

It’s a very optimistic looking slot, with some pink in it but not an overwhelming amount. In the background picture is where you see the pink appear most, as there are hearts flying up into the clear blue sky, with the two bugs that are in love being seen on both sides of the reels. All the symbols chosen for this game where selected because of their connection to the love theme, or to the things that people in love tend to do (sending pink letters, serenading and so on).

Symbols: Lady Bug (wild), Love Bug (wild), Love Heart (100x bet, scatter), Venice Canals (5,000 coins), Diamond Ring (1,000 coins), Violin (500 coins), Perfume Bottle (500 coins), Necklace (250 coins), Champagne (250 coins), Flowers (150 coins), Chocolates (150 coins), and Love Letter (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It seems like a fun enough title, with a theme and characters that manage to make themselves look cute, plus good prizes and a couple of features that are fun to take advantage of.

Love Bugs can be found at any Wager Gaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
