Pollen Party is a new slot title set to launch from Microgaming in March 2017. Whilst we still have a month to go, the question is whether the title is going to create a buzz at online casinos.
We’ve had a look at the trailer and can tell you that Pollen Party is a bit different from your standard 5 reel slot game.
It would be fair to say that the actual reels look a bit like a Blockbusters board and rather than the traditional four symbols on each reel, it could be likened to some sort of football line-up – three, four, five, four and then three on the five reels.
Although we have yet to actually play the game because it is not yet launched, we can tell you that it boasts 720 ways to pay and a number of bonus features.
There are several different symbols on this Microgaming slot with a fair mixture of high and low value ones alongside three wilds, the scatters and bonus symbols.
This is activated when you land three baby bumble bees on any of the reels and opens a new game. You’re shown a honeycomb and you have to pick sticky globules of honey to reveal cash prizes. There are 20 of these when the bonus game starts.
Reveal a baby bee and you get an extra life, a pop and the game is over if all your lives have been used.
The free spins are activated when you get three scatter symbols on the reels. This gives you 12 free spins and during the feature there is a special wild on reel three.
We like to call this the ‘pollinator’ because what it does is pollinates other symbols to become wilds. It will up to a maximum of three others on random reels.
Sadly there is no re-trigger option when in the free spin mode.
We’re going to reserve full judgement until we can play the game but for now, here is the trailer.
