Beetle Mania Deluxe is an online slot game powered by Novomatic. The online slot game is available at a host of online casinos, and has five reels with up to ten pay lines and features wild symbols, free spins and other game features like special combo wins.
The theme of the online slot is a play on Beatle mania which was the craze of the 60’s that began with the popular Liverpool group. Instead of featuring Paul, John, Ringo and George this online slot game is all about bug beetles and is portrayed in a cartoonlike manner with colourful musical bug characters.
The Beetle Mania Deluxe online slot pay lines are adjustable and allow one coin to be bet on each of them. The value of the pay lines can be set at anything from 0.04 up to 10.00 making 100.00 the maximum bet per spin. The maximum bet being placed means the jackpot prize is an amount of 5 000 coins.
The function buttons used to set all of the bets are found below the reels along with an auto play feature which may spin the reels automatically for any predetermined number of times.
The Various Symbols on the Reels
The bugs featured as the various Beetle Mania Deluxe theme related symbols are the caterpillar; the snail; the bee; the butterfly and the beetle. Alongside these characters are the standard playing card icons. Some of the featured symbols become animated when they are involved in forming a winning combination.
The reels are set on a background view of a variety of musical instruments on a stage. The background is dark and is reminiscent of a live musical venue.
All of the playing card icons need to land three or more times in a row but some the other themed regular symbols pay out for two showing up. The symbols must be in consecutive order on an active pay line to pay out amounts that are paid according to the pay table. Only the highest valued combination on one pay line will pay out but if multiple combinations land on various pay lines then the wins are accumulated and paid out.
The bee symbol is the Beetle Mania Deluxe online slot game’s wild symbol. The wild bee symbol replaces all of the regular symbols, apart from the musical note symbol and beetle symbol, to help create winning combinations where possible.
The Free Spins Bonus Round Feature
The musical note symbol is the Beetle Mania Deluxe scatter symbol. This is the symbol that triggers the free spins bonus round feature by appearing three or more times in any position on the five reels.
Ten free spins are initially rewarded and while the free spins are in play the beetle symbol may appear on the third reel on any spin to grant a 2x multiplier on any winning combinations that land during the free spins bonus round which can amount to a pay out of 100 000x the pay line bet.
There is no possibility of re-triggering the free spins bonus round feature during the round. This game is available on a host of reputable Canadian casino bonuses websites, and you don’t have to go far to find one.
