What happens when you combine beetles with jewels in a magical forest setting? You guessed it, Beetle Jewels of course! Get ready to take a trip to a mysterious forest as night falls and all the creepy crawlies have decided to come out and play. This is iSoftBet’s first foray into HTML5 games as the company looks to target the lucrative mobile game market.

Special Features

The first thing I noticed in this game was the red beetle symbol. It is the highest paying symbol in the game and if you manage to land 5 of these symbols then you’ll be awarded a whopping 5,000 coins! So make sure to keep an eye out on this symbol when spinning the reels.

The Wild symbol is denoted by a bright purple beetle. It replaces all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination and help you achieve a bigger payout. If you land 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels then you will trigger the Free Spins feature. In this game, you will be awarded 10 Free Spins and a special symbol will be randomly selected on the top reel. This special symbol is quite significant as if you land enough small or high paying symbols on the reels, this symbol will expand and award winnings on all played lines, even if the reels are in non-adjacent positions! In other words, any special symbol that appears will count towards any win.

It is also worth highlighting that the Wild symbol will not replace the special symbol in order to extend when playing this bonus game. Free Spins can be highly lucrative and lead to some big payouts if you land the right symbols while playing. The only downside of this feature is that Free Spins cannot be retriggered.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics and presentation of this game are simply amazing. The backdrop of the game is a magical forest covered in a blue hue with fireflies buzzing around in the distance. Symbols consist of a variety of beetles and each one is full of colour and intricate detail. The animations are worth a mention as each beetle springs into life and flaps its wings and moves about when they are part of a winning combination. It is a really nice visual effect to see.

The music is relaxing and quite soothing and if you listen closely enough, you can even hear crickets chirping in the background. It really does transport you to a magical forest setting and it complements the theme of the game really well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 10 paylines, a decent RTP of 95.5% and a nice jackpot of 5,000 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Beetle Jewels

Beetle Jewels is produced by iSoftBet and it’s a fun-filled trip to a magical woodland where brightly-coloured beetles are popping up absolutely everywhere. It is beautifully presented and really easy to play. Although there are not that many features in this game, it has a certain charm that will draw in plenty of players. I will admit that it was quite difficult to trigger Free Spins while playing this game but when you do the rewards are definitely worth the wait. This game is highly volatile so you will need to invest some time in it before you will receive a decent enough payout.
