Pollen Nation is a bee themed Microagming slot, the game being inspired by nature’s little workers and by the wonderful byproduct of their work, the honey. You will see all sorts of related items on the reels, but nothing that doesn’t belong there. It’s a drawing style that goes more towards caricature than towards something high quality, but it still works for it. As the slot’s features, get ready to encounter Wild Queens, Scatter Bees and the Babee Bonus. 25 paylines are present inside, and they are capable of paying up to $30,000 through their prizes.
Betting and Prizes
You have a maximum number of 25 win lines which you can use each spin. You can have all of them active, or you can select only some. You have other options regarding the betting, ones which allow you to modify the number of coins per line, from 1 to 10, or their denomination, which goes from $0.01 to $0.50. You may wager as much as $5 for a single line, while the total for 25 lines can’t get past $125.
The best possible combo you can land in Pollen Nation is going to give you 60,000 coins, which is a 6,000x prize. You will receive up to $30,000 cash from that payout.
Pollen Nation Slot Features
First on my list of favorite symbols is the Wild Queen. Showing us the Queen Bee, this symbol will behave like a wild symbol, and so you can use it to form combinations together with regular symbols. You can’t replace the bonus or scatter icons with it though. There is another situation where the wild can be of great help, when you land a minimum of two on the same line, aligned properly, from left to right. You get paid up to 6,000x through these combinations.
The Scatter Bee is the one that’s showing you her butt, or stinger if you will. Appearing anywhere in the game, the Scatter Bee rewards the lucky player with payouts of 5x to 80x the triggering bet, if he has 3 to 5 symbols.
The Babee Bonus triggers when the second type of scatter is present on the reels, in a minimum of three locations. At that point, you trigger something that is called a Babee Bonus, a feature where you can get paid up to 32,250 coins.
Theme & Design
Pollen Nation will deliver an interesting collection of graphics, focused on a theme that’s not going to be easy to locate in other slot machines. As for the actual design, I found it amusing, mostly because all those bees look a bit out of proportion, like they were half caricatures. Besides the Queen, baby and stinger bees, there are also guards, nurses and workers, while the low paying icons get the Royal Jelly, the jar of pure honey, the honey comb, the pollen puffs and the bees wax.
Pollen Nation should be an interesting game to play, the big reason being the use of its unusual animal theme, the features being good, but not special in any major way.
