Bonanza Megaways is a 6 reels, 7 row video slot developed by Big Time Gaming. The Megaways engine it uses made the game incredibly popular and the features it brought to the world of gambling changed the industry as a whole.
This slot is based on the theme of gold-mining, and it truly lives to its name because Bonanza Slot offers players 117649 paylines to bet on which may lead to some exciting and unexpected results.
To start mining for some delicious looking gold, you first need to choose your wager between min £0.20 and £500 maximum bet. This slot also has a 96% RTP which just meets the industry standard and has a high volatility, which means you won’t get to win every single turn but the payouts will be worth it. And it’s not a lie as you can potentially win up to 26,000x both in the base game and bonus features.
Gameplay & Bonus Features
Bonanza Slot will provide players with a jolly mining atmosphere. You will be teleported to a hill with a waterfall in the background and colorful gemstones just waiting for you to mine them down. Upbeat soundtrack will also help you to feel like a true goldminer.
Aside from the green, red, blue and purple gemstones, which are the highest paying symbols, you’ll come across playing cards ranging from 9 to A. In this game, even the low-value symbols have a jewel design.
It’s enough to get 3 identical icons on a single payline to get a minimum payout. The most paying regular symbol out of all is obviously the purple Diamond, getting 6-of-a-kind on a winning payline will bring you a 50x of your stake. By the way, to get some earnings from the Diamond symbol, you will only need to land 2.
You also can boost your chances of getting extra prizes each time mining carts carrying some symbols appear on top above for reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Essentially they act like a 6th reel that adds some bonus symbols which will lead to bigger payouts.
Bonanza also has Wild and Scatter Symbols. Wild is represented by a dynamite icon. It does what it usually does, substitutes all the regular symbols but Scatters, aiding players in getting winning formations.
G-O-L-D letters take the role of a Scatter and when you get four of them to land on the reels, a Bonus Round will commence. More on it below.
Cascading Wins is one of the most famous features of the Megaways Game genre, so it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see it in Bonanza Slot. But it’s not like we are complaining!
Each winning combination will make the associated symbols to explode and other icons to take their place. It is entirely possible to get consecutive winning chain reactions during this mode and grab some extra winnings.
It’s time to find more about the feature that gained Megaways worldwide popularity, a Free Spins Mode with unlimited multipliers.
It can be activated by landing at least four scatters representing each letter from the word G-O-L-D. Right as the game begins, you will be given a minimum of 12 Free Spins but if you activate the game with more than 4 Scatters, you will receive 5 spins bonus for every extra Scatter symbol.
Get to spinning and each consecutive win of yours will raise the multiplier level by 1x and there’s no limit to how far it can go.
The feature can be extended by getting bars of gold into the minecarts on top. If you see them carrying 3 gold bars you will get 5 Bonus Spins. But if they carry 4, you will get a whole 10. And there’s no limitations to how many spins you can get either.
