Honey Honey Honey
- Free spins
- Base game modifiers
- Sticky wilds
- No huge payouts
Funnily enough, just as Play’n Go launch their own honey-themed slot, Pragmatic Play has done the same, but in a very different nature. Honey Honey Honey is one of the best five-reel, 20-payline online slots with medium variance, fun animations and plenty of features to boot. It’s not the most mind-blowingly exciting slot we’ve ever played from Pragmatic Play, but there’s definitely still a bit of buzz around it.
Read on to find out how the slot works and what the JohnSlots team thought of it.

What we liked about Honey Honey Honey is the amount of features there are to trigger in the base game. Some slots leave all the bonus action for the free spins round, but Honey Honey Honey has taken the base game excitement up a notch by adding a multitude of available modifiers. We’ll go through all the features now so you know what to look out for.
Random Spin feature
This feature is present in the base game only, and is how you can apply one of several modifiers to your regular gameplay. On any random spin, three bees can appear – and if you select one, you’ll be awarded one of the following:
- Honey Wilds: See five to 10 honey wild symbols randomly appear on the reels
- Win Spin: Enjoy a guaranteed win of at least 30x your bet
- 5-of-a-Kind: Here, you’ll be guaranteed that a combination of five symbols will land
- Sticky Streak: In this feature, you’ll see a 3-of-a-kind combination appear on the reels, which will hold in place while the rest of the reels spin. If you land another matching symbol, the reels will continue to spin until no more matching symbols are found
- Free spins: Trigger the free spins round without landing bonus symbols
As well as triggering free spins through the Random Spin feature, you can also achieve it by landing three or more bonus symbols across reels one, three and five. You’ll then have two options to choose from:
- Eight Sticky Streak free spins: Eight free spins with a fully expanded wild symbol that will stick and hold across the middle reel
- Five Honey Queen colossal spins: Five free spins where colossal symbols of 2×2 or 3×3 can land (including wilds) to make it easier to complete combinations. You can also earn random 2x multipliers in this round
As mentioned previously, the honey wild symbols are one of the modifiers from the Random Spin feature. These will substitute for any other symbol except the bonus symbol to help complete your winning paylines.
This quirky slot doesn’t offer a jackpot, but you can win up to 400x your stake as a maximum prize. It’s not the highest paying slot we’ve seen, but the medium variance allows for a balance of high and low wins to come through.
Honey Honey Honey offers a slightly higher return to player of 96.5%, which will be welcome news for most players. it’s a medium volatility slot which we do enjoy every now and then, since you might find that it pays out slightly more often than a slot with higher volatility. We also found a good mix of high and low wins to come through, which kept things entertaining.
As per most Pragmatic Play slots, Honey Honey Honey has been optimised for multiple devices, so you can enjoy the full experience across mobile, tablet or desktop.
