This is one of the weirdest slot games I’ve ever seen. Beetle Jewels from iSoftBet is a wacky and wonderful take on insects that can generate cash flow. The 5 x 3 reel robotic bug based game features 10 pay lines, spins from just 10p and a 5,000 coin jackpot. The free spins game with an expanding extra is a good touch too!

Game Introduction

As iSoftBet continue to push their way into the mobile slots market, the Beetle Jewels Slot is one of the developer’s first build from HTML5 (Let’s web stuff look good on all devices). Available on desktop, tablet and mobile, the game is playable from 10p to £10 a spin and includes a free spins bonus that can be re-triggered.

Set in a magical forest full of beetles and glowing bugs, Beetle Jewels is a relaxing 10 pay line slot with a pay table full of rewarding insects. The RTP payout rate is 95.5% and while not feature intensive, the expanding symbols used within the free spins game is enough to keep us interested.

The slot has high-quality graphics with first rate animation and it’s responsive across all devices. The soundtrack is mellow too, possibly making Beetle Jewels the most soothing way to play online slots. But what I like most is the betting limits, it’s a game with a maximum spin of just £10 but there’s still a high jackpot with big wins and ultra wins also making appearances.

How much can you win playing the Beetle Jewels slot?

10p slots are probably the most popular. When I look at pay tables, I’m looking at the coin value and the coin prizes, it’s about pay lines and how much of the pay table pays more than the spin cost. The Beetle Jewels slot seems favourable with a 5,000 coin jackpot, but how much can you win playing this creepy-crawly infested game?

With 10 total symbols, 5 high paying symbols and 5 low paying symbols, it’s an even playing field. So let’s look at the possible wins from the smallest and highest bets per spin.

If playing Beetle Jewels at 10p a spin, that’s a coin value of 1p, some of the wins might be as follows: If you lined up 3 x 10 symbols you’d win 5p. 4 x scatter symbols (purple bugs) would pay £2.00 and start the bonus while at 1p a coin, the jackpot of 5,000 coins would pay out £50.

At the other end of the scale, in high roller territory, you can play for £10 a spin. But that’s still a relatively small bet for a maximum spin. At this level, each coin value is £1 and would return payouts such as; 5 x A symbols = £150, 4 x blue bugs returning £400 or a jackpot (5 x red beetles) of £5,000.

Considering that’s there 10 pay lines on every spin, 10 free spins in the bonus game and a 95.5% RTP, the Beetles Jewels slot is worth playing for such a low betting overhead.

Slot Features

So with all these fancy robotic beetles, what has iSoftBet done in terms of slot features? There’s the standard Wild symbol for early extras but the main stay is a free spins bonus with a two stage expanding feature. Sounds technical, it is! Also, did I mention that there’s a clever beetle that acts as both the Wild and the Scatter?

The Beetle Jewels slot free spins bonus is activated with 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols (purple bugs) on the reels. This will award 10 free spins. The two stage expanding feature works by randomly selecting a normal symbol during the bonus that then expands once the free spins end. This expansion covers the whole reel and it pays even in non adjacent positions.

The free spins bonus can also be re-triggered, that would mean 20 free spins.
