Playtech Launches Fear the Bear Slot, Available Exclusively at BGO
This fresh release is titled Fear the Bear, and for a period of 1 month it will exclusively be available at BGO, which means all BGO players will have the honour to be the first to play this new game.
About the Game
Playtech’s new release comes with a five-reel four-row and 50 pay-lines, offering plenty of opportunities to create winning combinations. Players can look forward to payouts going up to 125 times their wager. The game also has several exciting and potentially lucrative features on offer, such as stacked Wild Koala Bears, scatters, free spins and a Wild Drop feature.
The new game is a game designed to appeal to a wide audience of players as it comes with low volatility. The game’s main character is a cuddly Koala bear, with other animals populating the reels. Along with a usual set of low-value playing cards, players will encounter symbols such as a bird, a mole, platypus, reptiles or frogs.
The symbol featuring the Koala Bear serves as the game’s Wild. It will appear only on the three middle reels, as a stacked Wild, but with an option to cover the entire grid. But this symbol has an additional feature as it will have the Koala climb to the top of its reel, and once it does to, it will be collected in a meter Gather four Koala Bears from one reel, and you’ll trigger the Wild Drop feature!
Upon activating the Wild Drop, players will see Koalas come down on the reel which triggered the feature, awarding a fully wild reel.
Landing 3 or more Scatters will activate the Free Spins round, awarding players between 10 and 25 spins – depending on the number of Scatters used to trigger the round. This feature can lead to neat prizes going up to 50 times the original bet. The Wild Drop is also available, and with its help, the Free Spins round can be even more profitable.
When it comes to betting, this slot is playable from a mere $0.10, while the maximum stake cannot exceed $500 per spin. This means the line bet can go up to $10. Due to the game’s low variance, the prizes on offer are not so exciting, but they will pay often enough to keep you interested. You won’t lose your money quickly, so Fear the Bear can be a good choice if you’re looking to have fun.
It should be pointed out that the launch of the new slot comes during a very busy period for the renowned gaming company. Earlier this month, Playtech signed a new deal to enter the Portuguese market, and also launched three live games. To keep its offering of slot games fresh, the company added a new space-themed game titled Space Digger to its offering, with Blue Wizard joining it only a couple of day ago.
In addition to all of this, Playtech also announced its plans to make its offering fully compliant with Apple’s latest guidelines.
