The Sting

Objective:

Sting is hexagons-based game that consists of a draw area of fixed 24 hexagons which will rotate and then stop, producing a random symbol. This game has no paylines. The player receives a payout for connecting and matching symbol groups anywhere on the hexagons draw area. The player wins when there are 4 or more matching connecting symbol groups (anywhere on the draw area) and the game pays up to 12 or more symbol combinations. This creates a large variety of wins (over 100,000 possible ways to win!). The game features an expanding Honey Stick wild symbol. Wherever this symbol appears on the reel, it will turn all the symbols straight below it to wild. This game also features a Show Me The Honey feature which awards the users with free spins and multipliers. It is possible to win quarter of a million in one spin on this game by playing the maximum stake and getting a group of 12 or more symbols of a few selected types.

Gold Jackpot:

The Gold Jackpot consists of four jackpots at different levels: the levels are from the lowest to the highest: the Gold Blitz Jackpot, the Gold Quick Jackpot, the Gold Super Jackpot and the Gold Mega Jackpot. All four jackpots grow progressively as bets are made. For each spin, the house adds a small credit to the four running jackpots. All four levels in the Gold Jackpot can be won irrespective of hitting any winning combination while betting any amount. Each jackpot level is reset to its individual seed value after any player hits that particular jackpot. The seed value will be the value that is set by Sportingbet.gr.
