It MUST be compensated. No company would be stupid enough to release a slot that is "abusable" these days.just played it again a 20c till level 5 ,than on 2$ a spin.
46 bee's later and 1250$ down ,still not the bonus
I'm still not too sure. I think it could be exploited, if you found the optimum point to increase the stake when a number of bees hadn't triggered the hive or when your balance decreased by a certain level.
I could see it getting quite hairy if your up to the maximum £100 stake though.
You've got to ask yourself though, if it was that good, they'd be losing a fortune and the game would have been pulled long before now.
You need to look more into the morals of this slot. It's clear a large chunk of the RTP is tied up with the max swarm bonus.
So in essence, in order to get your full RTP you need to see it through to the point of getting the swarm feature.
When you look at it from a distance it actively encourages you to keep gambling, more than likely way past the point where it's still entertaining to play, chasing the feature. From a RG point of view, this isn't very good for problem gamblers.
It's such a clever, yet sinister slot. I think we may see some more of these, just because it has created so much hype and will be getting played a lot.
I have watched a few streamers play this. They all seem to be adamant that the swarm pays out at the bet size you are playing at the time. So they get it up up to max level at 20p bets and then raise stake to 2 quid or higher trying to get swarm.
Have seen some massive payouts on swarm and some terrible ones too.
They have to have some way of adjusting the feature / win based on bet size, otherwise you would just fill it on 20p and then play at £10 until it triggered.
