How to play Beetle Mania DeluxeClick here for a print friendly version
The Quasar Gaming range of slots is absolutely jam packed with quality titles that hold plenty of memories for players from the land based days, and the creepy crawly themed Beetle Mania Deluxe is just such a game. There is every chance that you’ll have enjoyed this most colourful of slots before, as it is one game that has passed through virtually every major land based casino, and while it can be slightly more difficult to find nowadays, that isn’t a problem at all as the full version, packing in the same prizes and features, can now be played online. You do of course receive all of the great bonuses and extras that online players receive and if you’ve played before then you’re more than welcome to dive straight in. Even if you’re new to the game, this is one slot that everyone should play at least once and below you’ll find everything that is required to get up and running with the best chance of scooping a great prize.
One of the main things that characterised the success of Beetle Mania Deluxe was the fact that any player of any experience level could drop in some credits and start playing quickly as it isn’t overly complicated in the slightest. A choice of up to ten win lines allows players to keep a close eye on the action without limiting their stakes all that much and there is plenty of flexibility to make the game equally enjoyable for newer and experienced players alike. When you’ve settled on the number of credits and lines that you want to play over, the fun begins as you look to match up all sorts of colourful themed symbols to make for the biggest and best prizes that the game has to offer.
There are plenty of great icons to select from and you’ll encounter bees, snails, butterflies, caterpillars and more. Quasar Gaming has also been sure to make extensive use of the traditional playing card icons that are virtually always found on their various games. As the name of the game would suggest, the bee is particularly important and five on any active win line will award a cracking top prize of 5,000 coins. Even if you don’t manage to line up all five at once all is certainly not lost, as the bee will also fill in the gaps as any other symbol except the musical note as it is the wild card on this particular game.
The musical note is in a league of its own as far as symbols on Beetle Mania Deluxe go and it combines nicely with the wild card. The note comes up first as it is the game’s scatter, with three or more taking players into the bonus round where free spins await. Ten spins are not the most generous total on their own, but the ladybird is something that you’ll always want to see during the round itself. It will appear on the third reel only, and when it does so it will apply a multiplier that will apply to any other prize on the same spin.
No matter how the game is going for you in any particular session, you can always try your luck on the Beetle Mania Deluxe gamble game. As with most games in the same series, it takes the form of a small card game where players can bet their prize from any spin on the turn of a card. Simply guess the colour in a true game of fifty-fifty chance and you can double any prize. You can also keep on going with the guesses, collecting even larger prizes along the way.
