Honey Hunters Slot Review 2024

Of all the insects that humans feel affectionately towards Bees reign supreme, but then again most of us are indifferent or disgusted by most others. Their absence would sow devastating consequences, and their absence in the world of slots would leave us without some of our favourite slots. Wild Swarm 2 and our very own Buzz Thrill follow in the thematic footsteps of others with honey-laden reels and a buzz of anticipation, as does the new Honey Hunters from Print Studios.

Print Studios are behind some of our community favourites like Royal Potato, Out of the Ice and the insidious Darkness, and now they’re back once more with a theme that could be considered more typical but with an atypical approach that Print Studios’ are so renowned for.

Will Honey Hunters create the buzz they’re looking for? Let’s check it out.

Honey Forge

Landing symbols carrying honey will begin to fill the Honey Forge meter, one feature section at a time. When a feature section is filled, the corresponding feature can be activated by pressing on it, at the cost of all currently saved honey.

All honey collected for the next available feature will remain in progression. Each honey forge feature costs 1x your bet to unlock, and progress is saved per bet level.

Honey Forge features available are as follows:

  • 1 Spreading feature with a guaranteed Wild and 1-4 spreading frames (RTP 96.09%)
  • Free Spins Bonus (96.26%)
  • Free Spins Bonus with Petal Paladin symbol unlocked (RTP 96.39%)
  • Free Spins Bonus with Nectar Nomad symbol unlocked (RTP 96.50%)
  • Free Spins Bonus with Cardinal Chief symbol unlocked (RTP 96.61%)

Spreading Feature

Any Wild with a High-paying symbol within it will spread a random number of that specific symbol type across the reels. If a symbol reaches a Spreading Frame, additional High-paying symbols will spread.

Wheel Feature

When honey is collected in the base game, the Wheel feature can randomly trigger. Once active, the wheel will spin and stop on a random segment, with the possibility of awarding one of the following.

  • Honey – A random amount of honey will be added to the Honey Forge meter. The ‘Max’ prize will fill the entire Honey Forge meter.
  • Coins – Awards its total value times your current bet.
  • Spreading Frames – Awards a Spreading feature spin with a guaranteed Wild and a random number of Spreading Frames.

If the wheel stops on a prize section, the next available prize in that section will be highlighted. The wheel will continue to Re-spin as long as it stops on a prize section that still has prizes left to highlight.

Feature Bet

Players outside the UK can access the Free Spins Bonus for an additional 80x their bet. (RTP 96.40%)

Honey Hunters Bonus Rounds & Free Spins

Landing 3 or more Bonus Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins Bonus. Additional Bonus Scatters after the third will award a payout of 20x and 100x your bet for 4 and 5 Bonus Scatters respectively.

During Free Spins, only 1 type of High-paying symbol exists on the reels. Players can progress through the Honey Forge stages by collecting honey. When a new stage is reached, +4 Free Spins are awarded and the High-paying symbol is upgraded.

Landing a Wild will award +1 Free Spin and the Spreading feature. The Wild symbol will leave behind a spreading frame for the remainder of the current stage.

Slots with Similar Themes to Honey Hunters


Print Studios went rogue on us yet again just a short while ago with Tarasque – a slot that was as curiously strange as it was compelling and entertaining. Honey Hunters is more ‘regular’, yet there are features at play that make it rather compelling.

The Honey Forge is a very interesting take on non-free spins features with a button that can be pressed to activate it at the cost of the collected honey. Could there be a pseudo ‘strategic’ element to waiting it out before hitting the button? Probably not, but it’s certainly a noteworthy deviation from the norm.

The rest of Honey Hunters is very well-built as you’d expect from Print Studios, and the statistics are once again a hugely appealing aspect. 10,000x the bet is the maximum win, so it’s perhaps not quite as capable as others in the catalogue, but it certainly feels realistic, and even possible.

All in all, Honey Hunters wasn’t one of Print Studios’ more daring releases but it feels truly capable, and very alluring.
