Bonanza from Big Time Gaming is an up to 117,649 paylines slot.
The Big Hit Slot Bonanza from BTG
Bonanza is the monster hit from Big Time Gaming which features free spins with unlimited progressive win multipliers, Win Reactions and Megaways. For those of you not familiar with Megaways, it is a pay mechanic which modifies the number of symbols appearing on a reel.
The slot offers a jackpot of up to £250,000, and paylines that can expand in a mega way of up to 117,649! Bonanza slot has an RTP of 96.00% and you can vary the wagers from between £0.20 to £20. This is a higher volatility slot, so you will likely need a higher bankroll in order play long enough to win a substantial sum.
The slot symbols include four precious stones as the higher-value followed by six lower-value royal flush poker symbols. The game is set on the side of a grass and moss covered rocky hill with an animated water wheel to the right of the reels. It includes fast-paced music and some mildly amusing audio effects.
The slot has a high volatility with a jackpot of up to £250,000.
An innovative feature is the four rail carts that carry symbols above each of the middle four reels. These symbols can be used as part of a payline. Winning symbols explode to create a chain reaction where the resulting spaces are replaced by symbols falling from above and, in the case of the rail carts, from the right. We had some fun with the Win Reactions because it triggered regularly and was often a great source of base game wins.
The slot also contains dynamite wilds which can substitute for any symbol outside of the scatter, but you’ll only find them in the carts above the reels.
The game includes wilds, Megaways, Win Reactions and free spins with unlimited progressive win multiplier.
Free Spins with unlimited progressive win multiplier
A scatter feature is used to trigger 12 free spins with an unlimited progressive win multiplier. To trigger the free spins, you’ll need to spell out the word G-O-L-D on four reels. Here the multiplier starts at x1 but climbs on each consecutive win reaction.
The progressive win multiplier does not reset until the end of the feature – and we really enjoyed watching it grow! Your total win is calculated only at the end of the free spins using the final win multiplier.
During the feature, you can add three extra free spins to your total with three or more scatters. On a side note, we also liked how the background image adopts a red tinge which added to the excitement.
My personal favourite slot machine!
Bonanza is unsurprisingly one of my favourite slots to date! The top three is completed with Starburst from NetEnt and Book of Dead from Play’n GO, but don’t ask me to choose between the 3, it’s too hard! And then there are so many other slots that are entertaining…
Exciting, Fast-Paced and Innovative Mega-Experience!
We can see why Bonanza has been such a big winner for Big Time Gaming! We loved the higher volatility because it offered some great payouts and we liked the innovative Megaways™ feature. In fact, the Megaways™ modifier has become so popular that the developer has licensed it to other developers. At first glance, we found that the game appeared a little complicated, but we later learned that it really wasn’t the case.
The symbols were simple and if it weren’t for the more interesting moving parts in the background, might have left us feeling a little underwhelmed. We liked the fast-paced music, which felt like something that you might hear in a spaghetti western or some Klondike gold rush. Our favourite was the free spins feature, which was very exciting, because of the unlimited progressive win multiplier, but we were disappointed at how difficult it was to trigger.
