Bonanza online slot game by BigTimeGaming
Bonanza is an iconic slot, and one of the most unusual (and popular!) slots to come out of Big Time Gaming’s studio. It is credited with popularising the Megaways concept. The game comes with an unusual 6-reel setup, with a whopping 117,649 ways to win.
How to play Bonanza
The design is nice and kept simple – the game is set it a quarry in the side of “Mount Cashmore”, and the theme is “gold rush”. The layout is completely different from standard slots. Framed by the stones of the quarry, the 6 reels contain between 2 and 7 symbols each. Once you get used to it, which shouldn’t take long, you’ll see that payouts are fairly frequent thanks in part to this unusual setup and the Megaways engine. The symbols include the conventional lower-value symbols plus precious stones.
The minimum bet is 20p per spin, and you can go up to £20 for a spin. RTP is 96%, so fairly standard for slots. You can play Bonanza on mobile and desktop alike, on iOS, Android, and Windows devices.
Bonanza has several exciting extra features. The Horizontal Reel (the carts above reels 2 to 5 carrying extra symbols) complements the reels and can potentially help you lend bigger or additional wins. You’ve got Reactions, which is essentially a cascading reels feature: With every win, the winning symbols disappear and are replaced by new ones that can create more wins. Free Spins are triggered when you land the word G O L D in scatters – this will get you 12 free spins, with 5 more for further scatters. And finally there’s the Unlimited Win Multiplier feature, which starts at 1x but increases with every additional Reaction during free spins.
