Honey Rush 100 Slot Features
A hexagonal 7x7 grid hovering on a natural backdrop of a lush meadow produces wins whenever at least 5 matching symbols form a cluster by being adjacent to each other. Each winning set disappears from the board, triggering a cascade that drops the remaining symbols down and adds new instances to complete the view. Standard prizes award from 0.1 to 10 times the bet for combinations made of flowers and from 0.2 to 40 times for clusters containing bronze, silver, and gold coins. The top-value regular symbol is a diamond that pays up to 50 times the bet for a set comprising 37 elements. Filling the entire grid with Wilds awards a massive payout of 500x.
Every winning combination contributes to the Rush Meter with the number of symbols it contains. There are 3 levels that award features when reached:
- Level 1 (30 points required) activates Drone Colony that clones the central symbol into 6 positions around it.
- Level 2 (60 points required) activates Worker Colony that clones the central symbol into 10-15 positions around it.
- Level 3 (90 points required) activates Queen Colony that clones the central symbol into 20-37 positions around it.
Surpassing the 90-point mark activates the Overcharge mode, in which every 15 points collected will cause the central symbol to upgrade. If it becomes the top-paying icon, the global win multiplier will be increased by +3.
Wilds that participate in a winning combination cascade down the grid through empty spaces. Whenever a Wild reaches the bottom of the board, it drops into the pot and increases the win multiplier by +1. That value increases to +2 after the Drone Colony activates and +3 after Worker Colony and Queen Colony. The maximum possible multiplier is 100x.
When you create a hit slot, it must be a massive challenge to come up with subtle yet influential additions to maintain the same feeling players got used to and enhance the gameplay's value. Play'n GO designers were undoubtedly aware of that dilemma, and they must have spent countless hours inventing a balanced formula. Did they succeed? There's no two ways about it. Honey Rush 100 does exactly what an expertly-crafted sequel should. It stays faithful to the original game model while infusing the action with a powerful multiplier feature that smoothly fits into the core mechanics. Naturally, some parts of the game needed to be nerfed to accommodate the new enhancements, like the paytable, but ultimately, it resulted in more dynamic gameplay where the max win potential skyrocketed to a stunning 50,000 times the bet.
Visually, there are some changes in the iconography of the low-value symbols, as well as the scene in general, moving from the cozy space somewhere in a tree crown in the first part to a lush, open valley with blooming nature. Plus, there's the magical honey pot responsible for growing the multiplier. Other elements, like the grid, the premium characters, and the meter, remained pretty much the same. Overall, Honey Rush 100 looks and feels almost the same as the original, gently adapting the environment to the new features.
