If you enjoyed playing on the Big Bear online slot which first arrived at some of our top-rated UK online casinos towards the beginning of 2019, then you may also want to check out another similar new online slot called Fear the Bear, which first appeared online in August 2019. This new Playtech slot takes place in the Australian outback and the main character on this game is the Koala Bear.

This new Wildlife/Bear/Australian themed online slot machine was released simultaneously on desktop and mobile, it has 5 reels and 50 fixed paylines, and you can take one spin of the reels either in the real money mode or free play demo mode from as little as £0.10 up to a maximum of £500.00 per spin.

The Wild Symbol on this new slot is the Koala Bear which can only ever land on the three middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4), and the only symbol that the Wild Symbol will not substitute is the Scatter Symbol. Each time a Wild Symbol lands on a reel, it will climb up onto the tree that’s above the reel into the storage area.

Collecting all 4 Wild Symbols above one of the reels will instantly trigger the Wild Drop feature on that reel. The Wild Symbol will now drop down from above to fill the entire reel from top to bottom. The good news is that it’s possible to fill all three middle reels at the same time with these Expanding Wild Symbols for some really big wins.

That’s not all though. When three or more Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels at the same time it will instantly trigger the Free Spins Bonus. Just 3 Scatter Symbols triggering the bonus gets you a guaranteed bonus of 10 Free Spins, whereas 4 Scatter Symbols gets you 15 Free Spins and 5 gets you 25 Free Spins. Free Spins can also be retriggered, plus the Wild Drop feature is also active on reels 2, 3 and 4 throughout the Free Spins Bonus.

If you want to play on the new Fear the Bear online slot machine right now, and if you’re based on the United Kingdom, some of the best UK online casinos that I can recommend heading over to include bgo Casino, Mansion Casino or Casino.com. This game is available in the real money and free play mode, and it can be launched either instantly in your web browser or from within the Playtech casino download client.
