Wild Buzz Review
It's not every day that you get an online dedicated to bees, but that is about to change due to Stakelogic. Wild Buzz is all about the glory of bees and hives playing on 6-reels with 40 paylines.
During the gameplay, players must fill up the hives with bees to deliver the tastiest honey. There is also the option to trigger free spins, multipliers and big wins that'll leave you buzzing with excitement.
The first thing that comes to mind with this slot is Bee Movie. All of the designs of the bees look familiar to that film with a creepy mix of bees and humans creating an anthropomorphic nightmare. Some players may find this cute, but it was entirely distributing to see the hybrid in our opinion.
There's nothing overly wrong with the design, but there is nothing refreshing either. The background of the slot is a forest filled with plants and trees but it looks quite blurry and tacky at times. It's even odder considering that the symbols on the reels are clear and crisp.
In terms of the music, there is an upbeat score that sounds like a techno score on acid. Again, there is nothing wrong with this but there is a strange cut-off point where the song loops and it is not at all seamless. To summarise, this slot feels rushed in terms of design which is disappointing as bee slots are extremely rare.
One thing that can be praised is the gameplay as there is always something going on. None of the features are hidden in bonus rounds and can be accessed throughout the gameplay. Players will be treated to Hive Spins, free spins and even multipliers.
All the buttons can be found surrounding the reels with the spin button, bet level button and the Super Stake buttons at the right sound. Further to the left, players will find the payable settings as well as any other settings they may need.
As for the win potential, Wild Buzz is pretty decent starting off strong with the RTP of 96.20% which is over the average standard. There is also a high volatility level leading to bigger wins but less often, so we suggest players have the bankroll to sustain themselves for longer playthroughs.
The biggest win is perhaps the most disappointing part of the slot is the maximum win of 5,000x the stake. This is not a bad amount by any means, but it's low compared to other online slots and may disappoint players looking for massive wins over 5,000x the stake.
Wild Buzz is a strange slot as it had the potential to be a new classic, but fails in the strangest places. For us, the design is too off-putting and feels a little too unfinished to be considered great.
However, the gameplay and overall features are pretty interesting and certainly warrant a spin or two. This is not the next best bee slot, but it's a decent one that will definitely leave you smiling from time to time with the impressive gameplay.
