Our rating:
  • A great-looking bug-themed slot from Elk Studios
  • Plenty of different and engaging features
  • Fun to play but RTP is typically low

Buggin is a new, bug-themed game from Elk Studios with lots of different features that are fun and engaging. These mostly centre around the wild symbols, but I’ll go into more detail on them all later. The design is bright and colourful, and the bug theme works surprisingly well, even as someone who doesn’t really like bugs. There’s a huge 7×7 grid to play on with cluster pays. Just try and get a winning cluster of matching symbols which are ranked as follows in ascending order:

  • Leaf
  • Bulb
  • Raspberry
  • Mushroom
  • Cricket
  • Spider
  • Snail
  • Ladybird

Buggin Slot Bonuses and Features

Cascades. This game has the cascades mechanic, meaning that winning symbols are removed from the reels to allow new ones to fall in from above and replace the empty positions. Wild symbols, however, are not removed and can fall into the new positions if none form a win in the first place. Wild symbols that form a winning cluster will merge into one and have their multipliers add together. The substitute for all of the above mentioned base symbols in a winning cluster.

Giant Symbols. Regular symbols can also appear as size 2×2 or even 3×3.

Feature Wilds. Whenever you get a win, the symbols are collected and add to the progress meter above the screen. This allows you to build up feature wilds which are then released at the end of a spin. If these participate in a win, they can activate their modifiers:

  • Giant Wilds. This turns a regular symbol into a 2×2 or 3×3 symbol.
  • Multiplying Wilds. This adds its multiplier to all wilds that aren’t part of a win.
  • Random Wilds. This replaces 2-4 random symbols with wilds.
  • Removing Wilds. This removes all instances of a low paying symbol.
  • Upgrading Wilds. This upgrades all instances of a random paying symbol.

Wild Redrops. If you activate enough feature wilds, this feature will trigger where all feature wilds are released and regular wilds stay in place.

Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered when you land 3 or more bonus symbols on the screen. You can also trigger the super bonus if at least one of the bonus symbols is a super bonus symbol. The regular bonus is the same as the base game, but the super bonus has a pre-filled set of feature wilds that can activate.

Bonus Buy. In some regions, you can buy the main bonus or other features for set amounts.



Buggin slot from Elk Studios has a huge range of wild features that are quite innovative and potentially very rewarding, with a maximum win potential up to 10,000x your stake. The base game has all sorts of wild modifiers on offer, and the super bonus can be very valuable. I would have liked to have seen a bit of a change in gameplay with the main bonus, and the RTP is just 94% as usual from Elk Studios, but it’s still a fun slot to play.
