Beetle Frenzy is an online video pokie from the developer NetEnt. NetEnt has been known to create slightly more complicated pokies in the past, but has tried to keep Beetle Frenzy a little simpler. Having said that, it is hardly devoid of features so players can still expect to have a good time.
Beetle Frenzy Online Pokie Graphics and Theme
Beetle Frenzy may not be to everyone’s taste with its theme focusing on insects. However, the theme is also very colourful and it reminded us of a child’s colouring book. The vibrant look to the game is really awesome and we really liked it, so you should still try it out even if you don’t like bugs.
The graphics themselves are good but not great and the whole design is made to look like you’re playing a pokie within a pokie. There are several pleasing visual elements to the game, like the bug’s eyes which move around whenever the player gets a winning combination.
Not all the symbols are insect related but there are a few, like a lady bug, stink bug, milkweed bug and then some mushrooms and various coloured flowers.
Beetle Frenzy Online Pokie Features
What makes Beetle Frenzy unique is that it actually has nine reels, which doesn’t seem to fit the simpler game idea NetEnt set out with. In fact, each reel only shows one symbol, so in some ways it is more like a three-reel pokie, but it makes the game quite unique.
A black and yellow Firefly is used for the Wild, which can be used to complete winning combinations. The only symbol it can’t replace is the Scatter, which is a Golden Apple. If a player can land several Scatters, they’ll be rewarded with multipliers ranging from 2x up to 400x.
There are also some interesting bonus games available, including Bug Collector. Landing three glass bottles on one payline will trigger this bonus game mode, presenting players with nine glass bug jars. Each of these contains a cash prize and players can keep choosing jars until they land on the X-symbol jar, which ends the round.
On top of this, there is the Lucky Spin bonus round, triggered by getting the same symbol in all four corners, or the middle reel of each side. This mode will cause the middle reel to re-spin in the hopes of making the player a winner.
Beetle Frenzy Online Pokie Conclusion
The vibrant colours, unique theme and interesting nine-reel design has created a rather interesting online pokie, one that we really enjoyed. We can highly recommend you check it out when you get a chance, we’re sure you’ll really enjoy it!
