When Bonanza hit casino slot catalogues back in December 2016, the entire casino community was in awe of what they had seen – a slot with an incredible 117,649 win lines using a brand new playstyle called Megaways! Needless to say, it was an instant hit and has since gone on to spawn nearly 30 different Megaways slots from nearly all major slot providers.
Bonanza is the original Megaways slot, highly volatile and capable of insane wins, this was truly a groundbreaking slot.
We Say ‘No, Thank You’ for the Music…
Bonanza offers fast paced gameplay with a western/mining kind of vibe – the reel layouts are 7x8x8x8x8x7 and wins pay all ways, get 3 matching symbols from left to right to trigger a reaction and new symbols replace the winning ones to allow for multiple wins from one spin.
Find the letters GOLD on the reels to trigger the bonus game.
Bonanza is a truly great game with the exception of one thing…the music. It’s insanely frustrating over long sessions!
Pros / Cons
- Ground breaking Megaways slot with lots of paylines available
- Nice graphics and visuals
- Huge wins can be found in the base game
- Exciting bonus round with unlimited multipliers
- Sounds are a tad annoying
- Very high variance
- Bonus round can be very elusive
Bonanza is a very ‘grindy’ slot – it can often go many hundreds or even over a thousand spins without triggering the bonus round so it is advised to approach with caution if you have a limited bankroll – given the incredibly high wins this slot can produce, it’s not always necessary to go with high stakes also.
Given Bonanza doesn’t have any in-reel features, gameplay can be quite boring while waiting for the bonus to drop, so this is a good slot to play in the background.
- The Free Spins bonus is triggered by getting the letters G O L D on the reels, as above.
- You receive 12 free spins starting with a multiplier of 1 and this increases with every reaction (win) – so multiple wins with one spin can really push the multiplier up. Free spins can be retriggered by getting 3 gold stacks on the top reels awarding an additional 5 free spins.
- This game has an RTP of 96%.
