Graphics & Sound
What most online slot players love about Net Entertainment is that it provides state-of-the-art graphics and positively happy sounds, which make online slots more fun and entertaining to spend time with. Beetle Frenzy is just as its name implies, a slot game that has full of colorful beetles and other bugs as well as flowers, mushrooms and even a nice golden apple! The background setting is similar to that of a flower field that is commonly seen on untouched provinces. The symbols are drawn in a cartoonish manner and playing this game will not hurt your eyes as its main color is green, which is a color known for its calming and refreshing properties. The overall graphic design of Beetle Frenzy displays primarily the color green, with other colors such as red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and pink.
There is actually no constant background music you will hear when you are playing Beetle Frenzy. However, when you spin the reels, you will hear background music that resembles like someone is in a hurry (when you are used to playing classic arcade games). If you stop the reels and wait for a bit, you will suddenly hear an insect’s wings getting zapped by an electric-shock bug zapper, which is the perfect complement to this bug-filled online game. A short, celebratory, trumpet-like music will fill your ears whenever you manage to hit a win!
There are no card deck symbols available in the Beetle Frenzy online video slot game. The regular symbols you will find in Beetle Frenzy are bugs (such as the red Lady Bug, the yellow Milkweed Bug, the green Stink Bug, and the blue Beetle), flowers (Blue, Pink and Yellow/Orange) and a purple Mushroom.
The Wild Symbol is the Firefly. The Firefly acts as a substitute for all other symbols (except the Scatter symbol) in order to help you complete a winning combination.
The Scatter Symbol is the Golden Apple. The Golden Apple Scatter symbol can be scattered anywhere on the reels to complete winning combinations, and as long as there are 2 or more Scatter symbols that appear. Your winnings are calculated by means of multiplying the Scatter symbol combination payout (check the Scatter Payout Schedule by clicking the Paytable) by the total number of coins you have bet. Take note that if you manage to get both a Scatter win and a Regular win, you are paid out for both of these wins, because the Scatter symbols are not required to appear on an enabled pay line in order for you to win. The Scatter win is added to your pay line win.
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
Online slot players will truly love playing Beetle Frenzy because it has 3 amazing Bonus Game Features to watch out for!
Lucky Spin Bonus Feature – The Lucky Spin Bonus Feature is activated when all the 4 corners or all the 4 middle sides have similar symbols appearing after a single spin. You will be rewarded 1 extra spin on the middle reel for each activating combination.
Bug Collector Bonus Feature – The Bug Collector Bonus Feature is activated when 3 Bug Jar symbols show up on an active bet line. You can win multiple bonus games per spin! The number of bonus games won is based on the number of activating bet lines. You are given the chance to choose Bug Jars to reveal your Mystery Bonus Prize. This bonus game ends whenever you pick a Bug Jar with the Exit symbol. When the Bug Collector Bonus Feature game is over, you are then returned to the main Beetle Frenzy slot game, and your bonus game wins are automatically added to your total win.
Flower Frenzy Bonus Feature – The Flower Frenzy Bonus Feature is activated when 3 Flower symbols of the same color show up on a bet line. You can win multiple bonus games per spin! The number of bonus games won is based on the number of activating bet lines. This bonus feature game has spinning reels that are enclosed by a tiled frame, with a tile selector that continuously moves around that frame. The reels will stop spinning when you click the Spin button. When the reels stop, a symbol with a corresponding value is shown on each reel. The tile selector, on the other hand, still continues to move around the frame. The tile selector will stop moving when you click the Spin button. The tile selector gradually comes to a halt on one of the tiles. If the symbol on the tile matches any of the reel symbols, you win! The bonus feature game will finish when the tile selector stops on an Exit symbol. When the Flower Frenzy Bonus Feature game is over, you are taken back to the main Beetle Frenzy slot game, and your bonus game wins are added to your total win.
