New Pollen Party slot from Microgaming

There has been a flurry of new online slots arriving over the last few weeks and along with Emperor of the Sea, Microgaming also released Pollen Party, both are now playable at one of our newest recommended casinos PlayOJO.

Make sure to check out our detailed PlayOJO Casino review, where we cover all of the features and unique features this new casino has to offer, which include no wagering ever, and cashback earned on every spin.

Pollen Party – Base Gameplay

Using a honeycomb style reel layout there are 720 paylines on this slot, and as you might expect there are lots of bee-related symbols on the reels including honeypots, worker bees, and golden wild symbols.

The special Wild symbols don’t feature too heavily on most of the reels, but there is a large stack of them present on reel 3 in the base game which can completely cover the reel.

There are 2 main bonus rounds on offer, a special Babee Picking Bonus Round along with a Free Spins Bonus Round that gives you 12 free spins.

Bonus Features

Picking Round

The Babee Bonus picking is triggered by landing 3 or more of the special bonus symbols, this then leads to a simple picking bonus round where you get to keep picking honeycombs until a pop symbol is revealed.

20 pickable choices that consist of,

  • 17 cash rewards (based on stake size)
  • 2 Pop items (bonus end)
  • 1 Babee Pop-blocker (Grants 1 extra life that counters a pop symbol)

Free Spins

The free spins round is triggered by landing 3 or more the special Scatter symbols and gives you 12 free spins once triggered.

The main extra feature during the free spins is a special symbol on reel 3 only, when landing in view this will add up to 3 additional wilds to any of the reels at random creating more wins.

Overall Thoughts

Pollen Party is a fairly average release on all fronts from Microgaming, the graphics and sound are acceptable but nothing to shout about, the bonus rounds are fairly unimaginative with a simple picking round, and a free spins bonus round with a minor extra feature that really doesn’t do affect the round greatly.

Given this is a 720 pay any-way slot you might be forgiven for thinking that is might be fairly a volatile release like some of the IGT slots, but the 5 of a kind pays are fairly low even for the premium symbols and there isn’t really a huge amount of wilds to actually create multiple winning combinations.

The positives are that the bonus rounds did seem to come in fair regularly in our playtests, with the wins normally in the 20x to 70x range and our overall balance wasn’t moving too far in either direction, so possibly a good slot for wagering.
