While you’d usually find yourself running away from bees, Wild Swarm is a video slot game that might just change your mind! Push Gaming may yet be relatively unknown as a slot game provider but that hasn’t stopped them from producing amazing games. Wild Swarm is just one of those with an incredibly high potential for fun!
Wild Swarm has 5 reels, 4 rows, and 20 fixed paylines. Don’t be discouraged by the small number of paylines because the in-game features will make up for that! Featuring an Instant Prize Pick, Free Spins, Multipliers, and a variety of Wilds, you won’t bee-lieve how big your winnings can get!
Across the screen, you’ll see a variety of bee-themed icons such as wooden card symbols from Jack to Ace as the low tier symbols. A white and purple flower compose the mid-tier symbols, while a honey pot, Queen bee, and golden dollar symbol are the highest-paying symbols – with the golden dollar always stacked. Keep your eyes peeled for the special symbols too, like the treasure chest, beehive, and good ol’ worker bee!
The beehive Scatter symbol is what will active the Free Spins feature. 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the screen will reward a number of free spins depending on how many appeared. The Free Spins may also be triggered as a result of the Instant Prize feature.
Throughout the game, you’ll encounter a variety of different Wilds depending on whether you’re in the base game, Free Spins, or Swarm Mode.
- Regular Wild: During the base game, a regular Wild symbol will replace all regular symbols needed to form a winning payline.
- Sticky Wilds: These appear in both the Free Spins and Swarm Mode. Any of the Sticky Wilds that land on the screen will remain in play for the duration of the feature.
- Shifting Wilds: This is one of the prizes in the Instant Pick feature during Free Games or Swarm Mode. With this prize, all Sticky Wilds on the screen will shift one position to the left.
- Expanding Wilds: Also a prize in Free Spins and Swarm Mode, one Sticky Wild will expand to fill the entire reel with Sticky Wilds.
Instant Prize Pick
The Chest symbol only needs to pop up once for you to trigger the Instant Prize Pick feature. You’ll have to choose one of the five hidden prizes which will be rewarded immediately.
During the base game, the possible prizes include a slew of bet multipliers, the Free Spins feature, Swarm Boost, or Swarm Mode. During the Free Spins or Swarm Mode features, the prizes are 1, 2, or 5 extra Free Spins, Shifting Wilds, or Expanding Wilds.
Collectible Worker Bee
Occasionally, a little Worker Bee symbol may show up on the reels in the base game. After all, he deserves a short break after working so hard to help you win! When this happens, he immediately flies back into the Hive at the top of the screen and leaves a Regular Wild behind on the reel.
With each Worker Bee that appears, the Hive counter on the right side slowly fills up, leveling up when reaching a certain number. With each level up of the Hive counter, the more Worker Bees you’ll need to move to the next level. Winning a Swarm Boost in the Instant Prize feature will immediately bring your Hive to the next level.
When it reaches its maximum level of 5 and yet another Worker Bee lands on the reels, the Hive may explode (from overpopulation, probably)! An exploding Hive activates the Swarm Mode feature.
Swarm Mode Feature
The Swarm Mode Feature may activate with an exploding Hive from the Worker Bee or as a prize in the Instant Prize feature during the base game.
When activated, a number of Sticky Wilds are added to the reels and you play with 10 Free Spins. All Sticky Wilds that land will remain in place for the rest of the Free Spins.
See, what did I tell you about the abundance of features? Almost every spin in Wild Swarm holds a fun surprise! Though it’s a slot game with only medium variance, that Swarm Mode will really give you the best bang for your buck.
