This Honey Rush mobile slot is sweeter than honey but stings sharper than a bee. Can you survive the rush?
Set on a hexagonal set of reels, is a little different from the usual grid slot games with 37 symbols spaces giving you a multitude of symbol combinations.
Of course, don’t let the pretty flowers and glittering coin symbols fool you. No one said the life of a bee was an easy one, and getting enough pollen to pay off the hive will take more than just 5 symbols. It may take 160 of them.
The Honey Rush slot game has some traditional grid game features: for one, on every win, the symbols explode and more come tumbling down from above.
This means that you get a chance at getting another win. It’s a classic avalanching win reel slot feature, and generally gives you value for money.
But because this is a cluster pays slot, and you get all those little wins, the paytable looks fairly unimpressive, to begin with. Mostly because unless you get clusters of 20 or more symbols, you rarely even get more than your bet.
Annoying? Yes and no. As gamblers, we always want a better paytable, but as slot review critiques, we have to look at why this real money slot works this way, and it’s because it’s a VERY volatile Play’n GO slot machine.
As you win, you fill-up the Rush meter. Getting 20 sets of symbol wins (ie. 5 in one spin, then on the next avalanche 10 symbol wins, and then in the next avalanche 5 symbol wins) is actually surprisingly easy.
You’ll then get a wild guaranteed win of 5 symbols and a sticky wild that stays on screen till the avalanche of wins has ended. Getting to level 4 almost never happens, because it means that you’ll get an automatic 20 to 37 symbol win. It’s the equivalent of hitting the jackpot, after hitting 160 symbols worth of jackpot wins.
But the momentum this Honey Rush slot picks up when you are in a ‘rush’ of wins, is so exciting and so much fun, you almost won’t mind that you don’t always get to the climax.
Yes, it feels a little frustrating, but with such big wins and a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin this game has our vote as the next generation of Play’n GO slots right next to the under-appreciated Mahjong 88 slot review.

Cluster Pays: Any 5 or more touching symbol horizontally or vertically, side by side, will create a win.
Avalanching Wins: Any winning symbols will explode, and more will come tumble from above, giving you a second chance to catch another win, free of charge.
Rush Meters and the Wild: You need to charge the Rush meter to trigger extra features and get sticky wild symbols. You charge them by getting symbol wins in succession on avalanches.
The Sticky Wild: The sticky wild only shows up after a rush feature and substitutes for all symbols and multiplies all wins. It can come with a multiplier of: x1, x2, and x3. and can multiply a win up to 27x the paytable amount.
If it's used in a win, the sticky wild will move once to an empty adjacent position before new symbols fall. You can only get a maximum of 3 sticky wilds at any one time.
The Colony Feature: Triggered either randomly or during the rush feature, this clones central symbols, creating a guaranteed cluster of wins.
If you love grid games like Jammin Jars by Push Gaming, you'll love this Honey Rush slot on mobile.
You need to be able to look past the quick wins and see the end goal of getting to level 2 or 3 of the "Rush". That's where the big wins start gaining momentum thanks to some fun walking sticky wilds and multipliers.
It's not your usual video slot machine, that's true, and fans of more traditional games will probably shy away from trying it, but maybe give it 10 or 20 spins. You might be surprised by the sweet nectar hiding behind these honey bees.
And if you like this and want to keep trying something a little different, we'd also recommend you read our Play'n GO Contact slot review.
Honey Rush is a hexagonal grid slot where clusters of 5 or more symbol create a win, filling up a meter that gives you special features on succeeding wins. You also get sticky walking wilds with multipliers.
