We have the highest expectations for Playtech's online slots, and their Bonus Bears slots are a perfect example of why. The Bonus Bears slot machine is fun without being tacky with fantastic graphics (especially during the bonus rounds) and sound effects that are simple but catchy without being cutesy or overbearing (no pun intended), and the payouts aren't too bad either. In other words, the Bonus Bears online slots are just a hair away from gaming perfection.
What can you expect from a Bonus Bears slots casino? At face value, the Bonus Bears slot machine is a five-reel video slot with 25 paylines. Players can bet as little as a penny per line or as much as $5 with a whopping max bet of $1250. That’s an amount that can’t be found at most slot machines and is something that high rollers can get seriously excited about. The grey bear symbol serves as a wild (and celebrates with every win), the beehive is the scatter/bonus symbol, and bees, a picnic basket, a skunk, a sexy park ranger and bubbly A-9 symbols round out the roster. While the game is sadly lacking a major progressive jackpot, it compensates by offering two different bonuses.
Bonus Bears has the corny theme players would expect from Playtech, but this doesn’t mean that it is not filled with rewarding features. The theme includes the bear in search of picnic baskets and honey, and the golden dashboard makes it very simple to place the bet. Up to 25 lines can be activated by placing a bet per line and selecting them before going for a spin.
The bear is not just wild but also plays the rule of the wild symbol to substitute when needed and award free games for three or more, while the beehive icons start the Honey Feature.
In Bonus Bears online slots, when the bear wild appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 it triggers the free spin feature which multiplies all wins by 3x and can be triggered again during free spins. Alternately, three or more of the beehive scatters will initiate the pick and win honey feature where players can gather up to five different beehives/prizes. Apart from the bonuses, every Bonus Bears slots casino offers a top prize of 5000 coins for five sexy park ranger symbols. The Bonus Bears slot machine also offers a number of other decent prizes.
Though the game looks simple on the surface it’s a lot of fun to play because of all the different options it presents to players. From being able to choose between different bet levels and bet lines used from 1 to 25, to gambling with winnings, there is almost always something for players to do in this game. Not only that, but the special win honey bonus feature adds yet another element to the game. You could turn the game on autoplay to keep the reels spinning, but it’s engaging enough that you probably won’t want to.
The Bonus Bears online slots can be played at any Playtech site, but our favorite online casino for this is William Hill. We give this game a 9.25 for being extremely modern but still fun.
The park ranger is responsible for awarding the jackpot as this symbol pays 5,000 coins when five form a combination on a paid line. Since the bear symbol is wild, the top combo can also be obtained with the help of one or several of these icons for the same prize.
