Pragmatic Play releases Sticky Bees slot introducing new Wild mechanism

iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play has announced the introduction of its new online slot, titled Sticky Bees. The new title promises “a swarm of wilds and fruity fun” while introducing a new Wild mechanism.

The game is set across 7×7 reels. It feature symbols including strawberries, watermelons, and oranges that must form an adjacent matching cluster of five or more symbols to award a win. These are then removed from play causing a tumble of new symbols to fall from the top of the game board which can grant additional winning opportunities.  

On each spin, up to 19 positions are marked and Super Wild bee symbols can transform a maximum of six of these marked positions into wilds which will be sticky throughout any subsequent tumbles. The company notes that the wilds substitute all base game symbols except the free spin awarding scatters, making it easier to form clusters of matching symbols.   

At least four scatters award seven free spins with one additional spin granted for every additional scatter landed. During the bonus, up to three Super Wild bees can be added to the game board, which will be guaranteed to land on a marked position. Any wilds generated in the bonus are held throughout all spins to boost winning potential.  

Pragmatic Play has released Sticky Bees on the heels of recent titles including Zeus vs Hades – Gods of War, Jewel Rush and Lamp of Infinity. The company currently produces up to eight online slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino, Virtual Sports and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API. 

Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: Joining other player favorites in the Pragmatic Play portfolio, Sticky Bees introduces a creative method of locking in wild symbols that perfectly captures the essence of the game, providing players with increasingly rewarding gameplay. Wins activate tumbling reels and unlock additional chances to reveal wilds, amplifying the excitement during the captivating bonus round and offering players the chance to harvest big wins.”
