The coin values in Love Bugs may be set to values ranging from 1¢ all the way up to $10. Each payline may bet only a single coin, but with a $10 coin value, players may bet as much as $250 per spin, making this game suitable for all players from the most casual to the serious high roller.
The big jackpot in Love Bugs is 5000 coins, or $50,000 if playing at the maximum coin value. The secondary jackpot is a generous 1000 coins or $10,000.
The look of this game is very cute, much like a lace Valentine. The symbols are all in the spirit of wooing a lover. There are Rings, Venice, Violins, Perfume, Necklaces, Flowers, Chocolates and Love letters as symbols, all spinning in a field of cascading hearts attended by butterflies.
There are two wildcards in this game: The Lady Bug and the Love Bug. As usual, those replace any card in any combination with the notable exception of the scatter.
The scatter symbol is what players will really be looking for, because the scatter unlocks the free spins. The scatter symbol is a big Valentine’s Day Heart with an arrow through it.
When three scatter symbols show up, 15 free spins are won. Better yet, when the free spins are spinning, additional free spin rounds may be won, making the winnings potential huge.
The Lady Bug and the Love Bug appear only on reel one and reel five, respectively. As mentioned before, they serve as wildcards in any winning combination with the exception of the scatter. As a special Valentine treat, when they both show up on their respective reels, the player is rewarded with access to the Love Bugs Bonus Game. This bonus round is really creative and fun. It consists of the Love Bug and his paramour Lady Bug drifting down a Venetian canal. As they pass under bridges, the player chooses gifts from the bridge and wins the money represented by the selected package. This is a really special and well contrived bonus round.
The sound effects on this game are deserving of special mention. There are not the constant sound effects that most games have, but when winning combinations are hit, gentle strains of romantic music are heard. The music is good enough that players will really look forward to the next hit to see what comes next.
This is a very pretty and well designed game. It offers lots of fun for any slot fan, and the payouts are constant. Settle into your favorite gaming station and spin the Love Bugs’ reels for real money tonight!
