We all know how important bees are to life on earth, but even though most people are afraid of them, several developers such as Pragmatic Play, Microgaming and Push Gaming have developed slots with bees in leading roles.
In 2018 Push Gaming gave us Wild Swarm, one of the very best slots with this theme. No disrespect to Pragmatic Play and their Honey Honey Honey, which is another great slot, but it’s not as good as Wild Swarm that offers medium volatility and an impressive RTP of 97.03%.
Add to that a max win of 600 x wager on a single spin and Wild Swarm should be able to cure any and all for melissophobia (phobia of wasps and bees).
In addition to traditional symbols such as J, Q, K and A, various flowers, a jar of honey, the queen bee and the dollar sign, Wild Swarm comes with two wilds, one scatter symbol and a treasure chest.
The treasure chest can show up completely randomly on all five reels and starts a Pick And Click Bonus Game, where you can win coin prizes, free spins or multipliers.
The two wild symbols on the Wild Swarm slot can land on all five reels and both can replace all other symbols except for the treasure chest and the scatter symbol. During the main game, it’s the Wild Honey symbol that is active, but under free spins it’s the Sticky Honey Wild that will help you win big.
During the main game, a bee can come flying over the screen and land on one of the reels. When this happens the bee will fly into the hive and leave a Wild Honey symbol behind. Once the beehive is filled with five bees, it will explode when the next bee lands and trigger the Swarm Mode teature.
This will give you 10 free spins and a given number of Sticky Honey Wilds already on the reels. All new wilds you land during free spins will stick to the reels until all free spins are over.
You can also win free spins if you land three scatter symbols during the main game. Just as when you land the treasure chest, the scatters symbol will also let you choose between secret winnings that can include multiplier, coins or free spins.
Push Gaming is well-known for their great graphics and lively animations. Wild Swarm is no exception and its colourful graphics makes this an entertaining and fun loving slot that suits most players. We have to praise Push Gaming for taking into account the fact that players want more entertainment on high volatility machines, as it can quickly become a bit tedious at times.
With Wild Swarm, they have solved this by giving the machine several great animations and features that keep the excitement at a high level, whether you are playing on a mobile phone, tablet or PC.
Wild Swarm has several similarities with the award winning slot Jammin’ Jars and Tiki Tumble in terms of good gains and high volatility. This is what most players are looking for these days, and Push Gaming is well on their way to becoming one of the best developers of this type of slot.
The only thing we don’t like is the soundtrack. Even though it suits the slot perfectly, it becomes a bit annoying after a while as it’s meant to convey the busy atmosphere inside a beehive.
Wild Swarm is arguably one of the best slots from Push Gaming to date. The combination of great graphics, cool features and high volatility is all we want and Push Gaming delivers the goods once again. You can test out Wild Swarm at several online casinos.
