Powered by Novomatic, Beetle Mania Deluxe is a 5-reel video slot game with 10 paylines, a wild, 2-symbol combo wins, and free spins. Inspired by beetles the bugs, not the Beatles band, lovers of cartoon graphics will appreciate the pun and presentation of this game. The colors used on this game are very similar to the colors used on most fruit-themed slot games, but this game is definitely far more advanced than its fruit slot counterparts.
Beetle Mania Deluxe the slot features bugs playing jazz music that will either find catchy or nerve-wracking one. Regular game symbols include Butterflies, Snails, and Caterpillars. The Bee is wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the special symbols, the Musical Note and the Beetle, to complete winning combinations to result in payouts. Three or more poker card symbols, just like the ones you'd normally see while playing blackjack online, will form a winning combination, while all other symbol payouts start at 2 symbols on a line.
Three or more Music Notes (scatter icons) will trigger 10 Free Games. If during free spins, you get the Beetle on the middle reel, you will get your free spin wins doubled, up to 100,000 times the current bet per line. Unfortunately, you cannot retrigger more free spins during free spins. On a slightly related note, should you happen to find this game featured in any online slot machine tournaments, your chances of triggering the bonus multiple times will be pretty high given that most tournaments give you a window of time in which to play.
Beetle Mania Deluxe offers an adjustable 10 paylines with bets per line beginning at 0.04, which gives players many more ways to win than there are on most of the ancient 3-reel slot games that are currently being phased out at a lot of gambling sites. At this minimum level, one spin with all 10 lines activated. At the maximum bet per line set at 10.00, all 10 paylines can be activated for 100.00 credits, serving as the optimal bet possible on this game. There are also many options between the two extremes to please many budgets of online slot players.
Beetle Mania Deluxe lacks innovative bonus play, but the interesting fact is that you can hit some pretty big wins, especially if you are lucky enough to land the Beetle in the middle reel during free spins. This is a medium--variance slot, meaning the huge wins don’t hit as often as you’d want, but it actually pays out really well once they do.
