With 720 ways to win, this Pollen Party mobile slot might be Microgaming being lazy, but they do it so very well…
What do we mean by lazy? In all honesty, this is a little bit of a Frankenstein slot. Not that it’s secretly horrific, but by the fact that they’ve taken lots of bits from different online slot games, and then mashed them together.
Which isn’t much different from many other mobile slot machines out there, except this is done a little lazily. However, much like the monster in the story, the soul of this Pollen Party slot is very much worth saving.
We felt like this casino game was oddly familiar, and it was by pure chance that we figured out that this is the same theme as Microgaming’s Pollen Nation game; available at online casinos only.
Granted the symbols have been modernised a little, but not enough not to make this theme feel a little dated in 2017, where you get such beautifully graphical slots like Beauty and The Beast by Yggdrasil Gaming.
It’s not bad per say, but considering this is Microgaming’s first 720 ways to win slot machine, you’d think they would have put in a little extra effort.
And then, there’s Pollen Party, where the biggest win you can hope to get is around 400 times your bet.
On the other hand, you’ve got to allow for the fact that if you’ve never played on 720 ways to win games, this Microgaming slot is a good place to start.
You won’t win much, but you won’t lose much either.
Much like the theme, this is fairly old fashioned game play, with two scatter symbols that will either give you a click me bonus or free spins.
Neither are particularly remarkable, though the free spins show up often enough to liven your game-play every once in a while.
In short, this Pollen Party slot online would have been an amazing addition to the Microgaming slot portfolio… around 8 year ago.
Now it doesn’t quite match up to what’s already out there, but on the other hand, is good enough that you’ll have some fun, safe, play if that’s your thing.

Wild Symbol: The Pollen Party slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces for all other symbols except the two scatters.
Scatters and Babee Bonus: Get 3 baby bee scatters anywhere on screen and you'll trigger a second screen game bonus. Here you'll pick from a honeycomb of choices which hide either cash prizes, baby bees which give you an extra life, or 'pop' which ends the round.
We have won around 40x to 50x our bet, but this bonus is hard to find, so hard to say with any consistency.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more stinging bee scatter symbols anywhere on screen and you'll trigger 12 free spins.
The flower symbol on the centre reel now also acts as wilds, and pollinates the reels with up to 3 extra wilds, giving you extra wins.
Fun free spins bonus games.
It's not that this Pollen Party slot on mobile is bad, it's just that it's graphics and gameplay feel fairly old fashioned.
We've seen it done before, and better, by many other video slot software providers.
That said, if you are new to 720 ways to win bonus game slots, Pollen Party is a nice introduction to the genre.
Mostly because these bees are friendly enough that they will give you a sweet treat from time to time, though you'll have to go to a slot like Cashapillar to find insects with a little more bite.
