HOW TO PLAY BETTY BONKERS
The main three reels of the game are as simple as they can be. You get 3 reels with 3 positions each, and you need to hit matching symbols along one of 5 paylines. The ways to win are easy to remember, too – three of them are simple horizontal lines and the remaining two are diagonal.
The symbols themselves range from everyone’s favourite fruit symbols to the famed BAR and lucky 7s. More importantly, though, things get a lot more complicated once you factor in the various Betty Bonkers bonuses.
Wild symbols work as they always do, replacing any other regular symbol. More interestingly, the Bonus symbol activates Betty’s Menu if you hit two of them during regular spins. If you hit three instead, the Betty Bonkers free spins round kicks off.
MEGA FREE SPINS
The reason Quickspin added the ‘mega’ here is that the free spins are quite powerful. Also, you can get non-mega free spins with Betty’s Menu – we’ll cover that in a sec.
As for Mega Free Spins, 20 spins are guaranteed as soon as the round triggers. During the mega round, the middle horizontal line of the slot is marked as the Bonkers Line. Any win along this payline activates Betty’s Menu. It also increases the Bonkers Line multiplier by 1x, which boosts any wins along the same line until the end of free spins. Additionally, it increases the Jackpot value for as long as free spins last.
Note that 10x is the maximum multiplier, and the jackpot can be increased up to 10 times the base amount of 1,000x.
But that’s not all. During Betty Bonkers Mega Free Spins, all the bonuses offered in Betty’s Menu get improved effects.
The big menu on the top of the screen is what Betty Bonkers is all about. Basically, every time you hit two Bonus Symbols, one of 6 random bonuses are applied. During Mega Free Spins, the same thing happens if you win on the Bonkers Line. Also, Mega Free Spins improve the effects of all bonuses.
Betty’s Menu bonuses in Betty Bonkers include:
- Lowest Symbol Removal – Removes all instances of the two weakest symbols on the table and spins one more time. 4 Symbols are removed during Mega Free Spins.
- Wild Spin – Spins one more time with 1 or 2 Wilds randomly added to the table, or 3 or 4 during free spins.
- Multiplier Spin – Respins while multiplying any winnings by 3-5x. The multipliers increase to 6-10x if triggered during free spins.
- Link Spin – Links two adjacent reels together, which means they’ll get the same result after the reels re-spin once. During Free Spins, all three reels are linked together, which guarantees a big win.
- Free Spins – The game simply respins 6, 9, or 12 times for free. Note: free spins won this way do not count as Mega Free Spins and don’t have the Bonker’s Line. If hit during Mega Free Spins, this bonus adds +1 spin, +1 Bonkers multiplier, and triggers another random Betty’s Menu feature.
- Jackpot – Awards the MIN, MED, or MAX Jackpot. During Mega Free Spins, the jackpots are increased based on how many Bonkers Line wins you scored up to that point, up to 10x.

It’s a welcome addition, but we would have been happier if Quickspin had explained how buying features affect RTP.
