The Wombat says: It’s time to experience the sweet taste of success, Wombat Fans in the Honey Rush slot from Play’n GO.
It might look like one of those Candy Crush-type games but it’s a lot more interesting than that; in fact, it’s the first hexagonal cascading grid slot we’ve ever come across, and offers sticky wilds and progressive bonus levels, too. It´s a bit different from the likes of the Diamond Inferno slot and your more traditional fruit machine games!
Plus, it’s as volatile as they come… Let’s get spinning. Show me the honey!
Look and Feel
HonHoney Rush slot is set in a cartoon wood, in the branches of an old tree. The hexagonal reels have a honey-yellow frame on a backdrop of green forest canopy, with the odd leaf fluttering down from branches above.
To the right of the honeycomb reels, you’ll see the Rush Meter made out of a tree trunk. Meanwhile, your buzzin’ spins are accompanied by a jaunty guitar tune that’s in keeping with the chilled-out vibe of the game.
The slot has decent, simple graphics, but nothing like an old-school game. You´ll need to head to something like the Reel King Megaways slot for that) especially if you like a lot of Ways to Win).
Honey Rush Slot Game Play
Your gameplay is set on a hexagonal honeycomb-style grid with spaces for 37 icons, wins are made via cluster pays which means you need to land five or more matching symbols adjacent to each other.
Your beehive bets start at 0.20 up to 100.00 per spin. If you are after a more traditional game we suggest the Wilderland slot from NetEnt with its twenty pay-lines, five reels and three rows. Honey Rush is more of a new-fangled affair!
The sweet icons on the reels include; sparkling diamonds, gold, silver and bronze coins plus pretty flower symbols including sunflowers, roses, cherry blossoms and pansies.
The highest value symbols are Diamonds which award 200x your bet for a cluster of 37 symbols.
The game’s wild icon is a red honey pot.
Honey Rush also features a Rush Meter which, when filled, will trigger the Rush feature. It fills up as you land consecutive wins – and the number of symbols in each cluster will contribute to filling the meter (so a cluster of 6 icons will fill the meter up to six notches).
The Meter has 4 different levels and as you enter each level you’ll grab a couple of bonuses to help you on your way…
Free Spins and Bonuses
As we mentioned, there are 4 levels to the Rush Meter, reach a new one, and a new feature will become active.
The honey pot wild symbol will be added to the grid to form clusters by moving from icons one position to the other – it also has a 1x multiplier.
Level 2 and 3
Reach Level 2 and another honey pot wild is added to the grid and if you hit Level 3 a third honeypot will be awarded to you.
These honey pots come with a 2x and 3x multiplier respectively. Even better; these multipliers will be combined to give you bigger pay outs, for example; a cluster with two 3x Wilds will multiply your winnings by 9x. Bonza!
Colony Level Bonuses
On a no-win spin in levels- 1-3, five symbols around the centre icon will transform into identical icons to create a guaranteed cluster win – this is the Drone Colony.
Make it to level 4 on that Rush Meter, and you’ll unlock the Queen Colony feature which will transform 20 symbols or more into matching icons to create a cluster. This cool bonus can also transform the whole grid into the same symbol – which can means big wins…
A fun game with some wins on offer if you’re lucky!
Fans of high-volatility games should check out the Honey Rush slot, it’s got one of the highest level of variance on offer from Play’n GO.
The rest of you will enjoy the simple gameplay and cheerful soundtrack for a few spins…
Wombat Score: 4.9/5
