Bugs Tale is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game does not use standard paylines, using winways instead. This game has up to 243 different winways.
Wild – The “Gentleman Beetle” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols, other than Free Spins and Bonus symbols.
Free Spins – The “Smiling Sun” symbol is the Free Spin symbol. “Smiling Sun” Free Spin symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. 3 “Smiling Sun” symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will award 15 Free Spins at x5 the original bet. “Smiling Sun” symbols will only appear during the main game.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Multi-coloured Grub”. “Multi-coloured Grub” symbols only appear on reels 4 and 5. If you can fill those two reels with “Multi-coloured Grub” symbols you will trigger the game’s bonus feature. These are only available during the main game.
Golden Symbols – There are gold versions of all the normal symbols that are worth double what the standard versions are worth.
Bonus – If you trigger the Bonus feature by revealing 3 or more of the “Multi-coloured Grub” symbols you will be taken to a new part of the game where a click and reveal bonus is waiting for you. Each object you click on will reveal a cash prize.
Bugs Tale appears on the surface to do everything you might expect from a standard slots game. All the boxes get themselves a tick; wilds, free spins and bonus features are all there. But the truth is, they tick those boxes by the skin of their teeth. Just and no more. What I mean by that is there are no interesting features within them. Wilds are just wilds. The bonus is a tile flipper and no more. The Free Spins are just that, but with a multiplier. They can’t be re-triggered and they don’t offer anything else beyond the basics. The game also looks OK. It’s not breath-taking but it is far from awful too. There are some bright and colourful symbols but having the gold versions, does cut down on the variety on offer from the standard symbols. The game does come with a very respectable house edge, sitting at just under what we consider to be average, so there is some value on offer here. It is just difficult to imagine anyone sticking around long enough to reap the rewards that come with slightly better than average house edge.
