Will this bonanza give you gloops of sweet, sweet honey? Or will this NetEnt slot leave your wallet sticky and stung? Read our full Bee Hive Bonanza slot review to find out.
Bee Hive Bonanza is a 5×5 grid slot by NetEntertainment, which has scatter pays – you need just 6 symbols anywhere on the reel to get a win. These explode, leaving behind an empty space that drops more symbols for avalanching wins.
Already it’s trying to be a little bit different, especially as you have been and beehive symbols in the base game and the free spins that can give you instant cash wins at any point. But the 5x multiplier in the bonus could see you get the Bee Hive Bonanza slot top win of 5,000x your bet.
The bees make all the honey in this Bee Hive Bonanza online slot. Each bee symbol has an instant cash win of 1x to 10x your bet. But you need a beehive symbol on the reels simultaneously to collect that money.
However, unlike real money slots like the Big Bass Bonanza slot, where the instant win fish are frequent, the bees feel like the exception because they don’t pay on their own. So you have a lot of very boring Bee coins of different shapes and sizes, expecting you to celebrate big when you win 5x your bet.
On the bright side, the beehives can sometimes multiply the bees’ amount by 2x, or increase the amounts to the next levels, and you can get multiple beehives and collect the same amount multiple times.
This rarely happens, however.
The free spins bonus had a nice little twist – every 3 scatters collected during the bonus will add +2 spins and increase the multipliers of all wins from 2x to 10x. It makes the paytable worthwhile and is easily where you might see anything close to 5,000x your bet.
But, while we have no doubt that there are big wins here, you would need one hell of a cascade or chain reaction of wins to even get half the top win amount. This honey may taste sweet, but just not sweet enough.
All in all, some nice elements here make this slot very playable, but honestly, we can’t see us opening it up much beyond the week of release. If you have the cash, it could be worth buying the free spin bonus to get a taste of the real thrill in this Bee Hive Bonanza online slot.

The Bee Hive Bonanza slot online is... ok? Is that the best word we can come up with? Yeap seems we couldn't come up with a more imaginative word to describe this very middle-of-the-road NetEnt video slot.
The theme is cute enough, the features are cute enough, and the RTP of 96.09% gives us hope that with a few good multipliers in the free spins, we could see a chain reaction that gets us at least close to the top win of 5,000x your bet.
Having played these cascading reel slots for a while, you might want to walk away with that honey if you manage to get anything close to 1,000x your bet. Then try the Honey Rush slot, which is a slightly more clever mobile slot machine.
