The Hive Slots

The newest slot game from Betsoft has just arrived. The Hive Slots introduction tells us that Bees with special effects rule the Hive; that there is a Honey Meter you will need to fill to earn free spins; and the Honey Burst will spread wilds during the free spins round.

About the Game

The Hive Slots is a very different configuration, which is quite refreshing. To the left of the slot is the Honey Meter (A Large Jar) and the symbols consist of Bees with very cute faces along with colorful flowers and card symbols. More importantly, you can play this game for free and/or for real money at our Betsoft online casinos as well as on your Mobile devices.

How Many Reels and Paylines are there?

The Hive is composed of a 3-4-5-4-3 reels and 30 pay lines. The entire slot is in a hexagonal grid format, which makes this game fun and very interesting to play.

What are the Betting Ranges in this Game?

At the bottom of the slot, you can scroll across from left to right to view the coin denominations. They range from 10 cents to $10, which is the total bet.

Where is the Paytable Located?

At the bottom left you will see two icons: the 3 horizontal lines and a question mark. The former will take you to the Paytable, while the latter will lead you to the rules of the game. The first tab in the Pay Table is for the Game Settings. The Auto Play Settings is the next tab. The next tab is the Pay Table.

How Does the Game Play Out!

Players are in luck with The Hive Slot as the game pays out both ways along cells which align horizontally and diagonally. Coinciding wins on different pay lines are added. Also note that the Honey Meter has 12 Levels!

Meet the Bees of the Hive!

  • With each spin, a Bee can spawn around the Hive. There are three types of Bees. The lovely Queen Bee: She can summon a swarm of other Bees to surround the Hive, improving chances to take home that sweet gold.
  • The Drone Bee: He will fill the Honey Meter, triggering Free Spins when full. The more Drone Bees appear on the slot, the faster the Honey Meter will be filled.
  • The Worker Bee: He will award a stacking multiplier that increases with the number of other Worker Bees surrounding the Hive. Its value equals the number of the Worker Bees +1. The multiplier applies only to the winning pay lines aligned with a Worker Bee.
  • Bees of any type can spawn randomly with every spin. The Bees will move clockwise to 1 position around the Hive Grid with each consecutive spin. Bees fly away after a random number of spins. Worker Bees will trigger their activity if at least one Worker Bee is aligned with a winning pay line.

Sticky Sweet Free Spins

When a Drone Bee spawns, each Drone Bee currently around the Hive Grid, including the spawned one, will fill the Honey Meter by one level. When the Honey Meter is full, 5 Free Spins will be awarded.

Honey Burst Spreading Wilds

During the Free Spins round, 1, 2, or 3 Honey Burst Spreading Wilds will appear on the Hive Grid. Wilds will spread from their initial place on the grid to adjacent honeycomb cells after every spin, and will continue to spread to other cells until the end of the Free Spins round.

Why Should I Bet the Max?

Depending upon your total bet per spin, the payouts change for every symbol. For example, if you bet the minimum of 10 cents, the most you can make on the highest paying symbol is $1. However, if you bet the max of $10 per spin, the highest paying symbol is worth $100. I suggest you practice play this game utilizing different coin denominations so that you can determine the most you can bet per spin and check that bet with the payouts.


The Hive Slots is loads of fun to play. The Grid is unique and also has a lucky Lady Bug that appears quite a lot. Although the payouts are not as high as I would like, the wins are constant. Betting the max of $10 is definitely worth it in this game. Watch as the Bees surround the Grid with each win, and then watch the Drone Bees fill up the Honey Meter. This is definitely a game worth playing. Therefore, I invite all our online players from the US to play the NEW Hive Slots at our participating casinos.
