Mystic Hive Slots
And what exactly is a mystic hive, anyway? We are about to find out, as we review one of the newest slots released by a famous slot developer. If that doesn't pique your curiosity, we don't know what will.
If the title sounds familiar, it's because the same developer released The Hive, too. Mystic Hive is an alternative to that game for those who like a different theme. Find out more below.
And the developer is…
Betsoft - one of the best and biggest names around in the world of slots today.
We get a demo to try too
Betsoft clearly believes in trying a game before you pay to play it. So, you can check out Mystic Hive in detail before committing your gaming budget to play for real.
Does it have a mysterious theme?
It focuses on mystery and fireflies, as shown in the paytable. You'll find out more about them in our review.
Design features in Mystic Hive
The background here is vague, seeming to show a night setting. We guess that makes sense if fireflies are involved. The reel set is where all the action happens.
Reels, features, and more in Mystic Hive
The same hexagonal reel set used in The Hive is brought back in this game. The game doesn't work on reels, so you need to be familiar with how prizes are paid as you play. More is revealed in the paytable.
There are three special fireflies that can appear around the hive. The green one can bring in other fireflies to help you achieve certain aims. The yellow one has a stacking multiplier to help, and the red firefly is connected to the Nectar Meter we'll cover shortly.
You never know how long the fireflies are going to stay in view either. Eventually, they fly away… maybe after one spin, maybe longer.
How many paylines are involved?
There are 30 lines in action in this game.
Place those bets
The betting range goes from 10 cents to $90, giving most players something to select to find the ideal bet.
Choose info to find the paytable
Represented by a lowercase i, the paytable is located to the left of the control bar underneath the game area.
No bonus feature to speak of
The randomly appearing fireflies are good to spot, but other than those, there isn't a special round you could call a bonus.
Free spins in the Mystic Hive
These are available once the red fireflies appear enough times to fill the Nectar Meter. At this stage, you get five free spins. At least one nectar burst wild appears in these games, but you could receive up to three of them. You'll see each one spread with each spin too, turning other spots in the hive into wilds. They all stay put for the remaining spins.
What is the RTP value for Mystic Hive?
The game offers a decent RTP of 96.13%.
Our rating for the Mystic Hive slot game
It is identical in format to The Hive, and we liked that one. This one swaps out the bee theme for one revolving around mystical fireflies. It's a personal choice as to which one is best. It's a good 8/10 game though.
How much is the biggest prize worth?
According to information coming direct from Betsoft, the best prize is 243x your wager.
Don't miss the demo
Enjoy spotting those fireflies around the hexagonal grid as you begin to understand how the game works. We always suggest trying a game before betting on it, but this is even more important in this case.
