Bonus Bears is a game with several bonus features, including free spins, multipliers and free games. The game also has a wild symbol, which is the mighty, yet cool-looking bear itself. The beehive is the scatter symbol and triggers the multiplier, the Honey feature and the free games feature too. The bear symbol replaces all other symbols except the beehive, and improves your chances of winning when it appears anywhere on the reels.
The Honey feature is an interesting bonus round that allows player to win free credits. This feature is triggered when you get at least 3 beehive symbols anywhere on the reels. The objective in this bonus round is for the player to find as many honey pots as he or she can. To do so, the player has to make the bear climb up one of the five trees and search for honey pots. The more number of pots the bear finds, the higher your free credits will be. The feature is active until a beehive is found. This feature can be triggered during normal game play and also during free spins.
The free games feature is triggered when the wild symbol, the bear, appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 after a spin. You can win as many as 15 free games, by triggering and retriggering this feature. During this round, your wins are multiplied by 3 to increase the total winnings.
At present, Bonus Bears is available for real and free money play only at online casinos using Playtech casino software. The game developer is yet to release a mobile version of these slots.
