My very first impression of The Bees Buzz was “Very yellow”. You could ask quite rightly “What did you expect from a game that got its name after a yellow bug.” “Not that much yellow,” - I replied. But seriously, this game’s dominated yellow shade and normally I could find it exaggeration but playing with it for a while I realized it’s not that bothering as I thought so I can safely say I’ve got nothing problem with it. The whole game (including the cheerful music) just radiates out from itself a sunny, jolly atmosphere and the player comes promptly under its influence.
It introduces us a bee-keeping farm with sketches and uses for symbols the important participants like bee, wasp, flowers, honey, and beehive.
It’s a 10-payline game full of little extras. Every time when a bonus symbol lands on the reels we got 100 bonus points and if it reaches the 1000 point and alternatively selected bonus game is activated. Spring Bee Race bonus leads us to a lying race between 3 bees and our goal is to predict what bee will win the race. According to the sense, our final prize will be the highest if our choice was right. At Treasure Bee Maze bonus we have to choose a hidden corridor out of 3 where we think our bee will find a treasure and if the corridor was the right one we can go on to the 2nd, 3rd stage but if it wasn’t, the bonus game ends. They’re no bad bonuses but the rewards are almost laughable. With €1 bet the bonuses have never gave back more than €5. I think if this amount would be 4 or 5 times more, it even couldn’t be said it’s too generous.
5,10 or 20 free spins can be won, where the payout situation is a bit better but it’s still far away from a normal return. Additional free spins and the bonus games can be activated during free spins. There are 2 special symbol features that put a little better face on the matter. If 2 Flowers are on a winning line we have a chance to select a flower that gives a multiply value (x2-x5) to that win. That’s why a 5 of a kind with it can pay x300 or max. x1500 depending on which multiplier was selected. By the way, the Farm symbol can give the highest reward with its 5000 times multiplier. The other mini extra is if Wild’s a part of a winning line it also can add a randomly selected multiplier number which is used to determine the final prize.
Overall, it’s a tight-fisted game at least I’ve had terrible payouts and without this pleasant view and delightful climate I don’t even think about to spend a minute playing with it. I understand it has many ways to win but in my translation it means many ways to not win big. Maybe, choosing the middle way would have been a better option.
