Here is an interesting 3 reel slot machine that you can practice for free. It is called Beetle Frenzy and it isn’t your typical 3 reel game. To start, there are 5 paylines that you have a chance of winning: all three horizontal lines and both diagonals.
This is what I would consider to be a 3 reel bonus slot because of all of the extra features that are involved. If you just start spinning without looking at the rules, you may be confused. Let’s start at the most basic rules and go from there.
You will need to select a Bet Level between 1 and 5. This will be multiplied by the Coin Value which goes from 0.10 to 5.00. If you would automatically like to bet at level 5, click the Max Bet button. Otherwise, press the spin button next to it.
You will need to get three matching symbols in order to win on a payline. The one exception is the Lady Bug symbol, which will win your money back if two line up on a payline. Click on the Paytable button and scroll to the 4th screen to see the paycharts for the normal icons.
If you want to get the largest wins in this game, you will need all nine icons to match. The paychart for this is the 3rd screen on the Paytable button. You can also win if all nine spots are flower symbols or bug symbols.
You can also win a “Lucky Spin”. This happens if you match all four corners or the 4 sides between the corner. You will win one extra spin for each combination.
The Firefly is a Wild symbol and substitutes for other icons to complete paylines. The Golden Apple is called a scatter symbol; if you get two or more on the reels, you will automatically win on your bet.
There are also two special features that you can win. The first is called the Bug Collector. In order to win this feature, you must get three of the Glass Jar symbols on a payline.
The screen will change and you will be presented with 9 cards to choose from. Each card will have an icon behind it. You will win the prize at the bet level that you chose when you won this feature. Avoid getting the card with an “X” on it, because this will end the feature.
