The wombat says: Fancy a spot of gold mining Wombat fans? Well, who doesn’t? Then you must hit up Bonanza slot, a brand new release from Big Time Gaming. It also comes with a free spins feature and expanding multipliers, but the biggest wow factor is the Megaways mechanism that offers up to 117,649 winning combinations on the reels. That’s right, 117,649! Our minds are quite literally boggled right now…
You might need to calm down on something like the Wu Xing slot if this all gets too much. If you are happy to double down for the ride, read on!
Look and Feel
The graphics in Bonanza slot are great. The setting is a gold mine that’s cut into the rocks, and the reels themselves are flanked by boulders and a prospectors hut – where can you rest your weary feet when you’ve been treasure hunting all day.
We’re also quite keen on the a fast-paced hillbilly style backing track that goes perfectly with the theme.
And of course it has those extra symbols (like the Monster Wins Slot and Planet of the Apes). So that means more combinations to go for.
Bonanza is 6 reel slot with a flexible number of reels and it also uses the Megaways payline system. So what’s that then? Basically, each of the 6 reels can feature anything between 2 and 7 symbols so the number of ways to win changes on each spin. Winning combinations are formed when the same symbol lands on adjacent reels. It is a slot, but has the feel of different titles like the Gems Odyssey Game – it has the feel of a hybrid.
After each winning spin, the winning icons explode off your reels and replaced by brand new symbols that rain down from above. Then, a new payout is made with the new symbols in place. These blasts continue until there’s no more winning combos made. Excellent!
Your symbols on the reels include a quartet of gemstones; a huge diamond plus red rubies, blue sapphires and green emeralds gems that make up the high value symbols, while the 9, 10, J, Q, K & A plying cards make up the lower value icons. Above the reels wombat fans, you’ll also notice a cart that carries four symbols on each spin. Each cart adds another symbol to the reel directly below, providing us with another chance to win! Yeeehhhhaa!
The sticks of dynamite make up the Wild in this game and they replace all other symbols except for the Scatter.
Free Spins Round
The letters G, O, L, D are the scatters in Bonanza. Land 4x of them on the reels and you’ll trigger off the Free Spins feature scooping a gem-tastic 12 free spins while you’re at it.
The exploding reels are also in play during the feature and a multiplier is applied to any payout after every successive explosion – it starts at 1x and increases by 1x on every explosion. Keep your eyes peeled out for the bars of gold which appear in the carts above the reels, too, 3x of these little bad boys will add another 5x free spins to your bonus round. Sweet!
This game is awesome. We love the original gameplay on offer, and Megaways mechanism means there are non-stop regular wins. Plus, if you get lucky with those free spin explosions, this slot really will become bonanza for your bank balance. Drop whatever you’re spinning and have a go at Bonanza slot, you won’t be disappointed.
