Honey bees are amazing creatures, responsible for pollinating food crops and in turn playing a huge part in the provision of the food we eat every day. In Pollen Party by Microgaming, bees are finally given the recognition they deserve as the game’s theme focuses on a hive of these hard-working insects. Spin colourful reels to see the bees hard at work and keep your fingers crossed for big cash prizes that’ll get you buzzing.

About the Game
Pollen Party has quite a simplistic look to it, but the graphics are visually appealing and the game is full of bright, quirky symbols. The reels themselves are made up of hexagonal honeycomb shapes, with reels 1 and 5 displaying three symbols, reels 2 and 4 displaying four and reel three having five positions. This 5-reel slot has 720 ways to win, giving players plenty of chances to score exciting cash prizes.
The cartoon symbols aren’t three-dimensional or animated as they are in some other modern slot games but they are colourful and engaging, showing a range of bee characters as well as some other bee and honey related objects. Lower value symbols include honey flavoured cereal, a honey jar and some royal jelly, while higher paying symbols include a worker bee, nurse bee, soldier bee and queen bee, all of whom are relied upon to ensure that honey can be made without a hitch.
There are two different bonus features in this game, which means players have more opportunities to win big.
- WILDS – The Pollen Party symbol acts as this game’s WILD, as well as the golden ‘wild’ and flower symbols in the bonus games. These symbols substitute for all others except SCATTER and BONUS.
- FREE SPINS - When 3 or more stinging bee SCATTER symbols appear anywhere in view on the reels, the free game feature is automatically triggered and players are awarded with 12 free spins. During the free spins feature, extra WILD symbols appear whenever you land a flower symbol in the centre of the reels.
- BABEE BONUS FEATURE – This feature is triggered whenever you land 3 or more BONUS symbols in the main game. It is a ‘take your pick’ bonus, in which players must select honeycombs for the chance to win additional rewards. Players can keep picking until the ‘Pop’ icon is revealed. You may uncover the hidden bee, which awards an extra life and extends gameplay. In this bonus game, you can win up to a massive 110,000 coins!
We are incredibly reliant on the humble honey bee, so we should really show them a little more appreciation. In this game, you can do just that, spinning the reels to watch these fascinating creatures at work while you keep your fingers crossed for cash rewards. This slot is easy to play and loads of fun, with plenty of great honey-sweet bonus features.
