Golden Bet

Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Golden Bet feature.

Choosing to activate this feature will increase your current bet by 50%, but with that comes one advantage. Once active, your chances of triggering the Free Spins round is Doubled.

Glow Wilds Feature

During any random spin in the base game, the Glow Wilds feature may trigger. Once this happens, a random number of Wild symbols will be added to the reels whilst the spin is in play.

Bugs Money Free Spins

Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters across the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding a payout of 8x, 40x and 200x your current bet respectively.

In terms of Free Spins, you will be given a choice of 4 Options, as follows.

  • Option 13 Free Spins and a random win Multiplier range of x5, x10, x20 and x50.
  • Option 27 Free Spins and a random win Multiplier range of x3, x5, x10 and x20.
  • Option 310 Free Spins and a random win Multiplier range of x2, x3, x5 and x10.
  • Option 415 Free Spins and a random win Multiplier range of x1, x2, x3 and x5.

During Free Spins, a random win Multiplier from the above list (depending on which option you chose) is awarded above the reel set.

If a Queen Bee symbol lands in view on reel 3 during this time, the win Multiplier is automatically increased by x10, for example a x50 Multiplier will increase to x500.

The Queen Bee symbol acts as a Wild, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters. Please note the Queen Bee symbol will only appear on reel 3 during Free Spins.

Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 during this time will award the same number of Free Spins chosen at the start.

Bugs Money: Our Verdict

Bugs Money isn’t quite the bug bonanza we had imagined it to be. Yes there’s a couple of creepy crawlies in there along with a forest scene in the background, but it could have done with a little more, don’t you think?

Moving past the theme, the base game has a simple yet effective feature available. The Glow Wilds feature isn’t exactly new to us nor is it the most exciting, but it can still deliver some pretty decent wins if the wilds hit in the right place with high-paying symbols.

The Free Spins round has a lot more going for it, and is where the impressive max win cap of 55,028x seems more promising. Reflex Gaming lets you choose your own destiny in the form of 4 Bonus Options, but the bigger the potential, the less Free Spins you get, so choose wisely.

Its during this time you will come across the Queen of all critters, the Queen Bee symbol, who can increase the win Multiplier by x10, making the 55,028x just within our grasp.

Bugs Money isn’t a terrible game by any means, but we think you will agree that its selling point is definitely the max win cap, but is it capable of delivering such a figure? Time will tell.
