You gotta be prepared to take a sting or two if you want the honey.
Bonus Bears had 5 reels, 25 paylines and you can bet 10 coins on each of the paylines.
The ‘Bear’ symbol is wild and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
There are two bonus features when playing Bonus Bears. The first is activated when you receive three or more of the ‘Beehive’ symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing the Bear and five trees. Select a tree for the Bear to climb. As he climbs the tree he’ll find beehives. If he finds honey in the hive you win a cash prize and the Bear continues to climb. If he finds bees the bear falls off the tree. The Bear will stop climbing if he finds 5 honey filled beehives.
The second bonus symbol is activated when you receive the ‘Bear’ wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this happen you will be awarded 15 complimentary spins with all wins tripled.
With a higher house edge than many comparable Playtech slots games, Bonus Bear ain’t reaching the heights.
