Spin that Reel – Bonanza slot review

Bonanza is a Big Time Gaming slot with 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways with up to 7 symbols per reel. Setting of this game is a goldmine where above reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 carts filled with more jewels and symbols, acts as another reel and can help create combination of wins. The game pays for most 3 or more adjacent symbols that show up from left to right.

The game works with a cascading reels system, which you probably know from NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest, that can provide you with multiple consecutive wins because one win can trigger a next win.

At Big Time Gaming they call this the dualreadion feature, where not only the main 6 reel winning symbols explode and more fall in from above, but new symbols that were part of the carts at the top of the screen will roll in from the right and fill up with more winning symbols if you are lucky.

Quite an interesting approach to a slot game that takes a bit getting used to, and it does help create more wins but for the big wins this game has something else up its sleeve.

A diamond plus red, blue and green gems have the highest values while 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. The wild symbol is a pack of dynamite and it will substitute for all other symbols except the ‘G, O, L, D’ scatter icons.

Unlimited free spins with unlimited multipliers

When you hit the bonus at Bonanza you start off with 12 free spins for finding the golden letters G O L D across the reels. The bonus game takes you deeper into the mine where the bigger wins await. After every reaction or win found, your multiplier will increase up to an unlimited amount. On average you can expect to reach a multiplier up to 10x which can give you pretty nice win.

You can win additional free spins during the bonus game by finding the gold bar scatters in the carts at the top of reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. It is not easy to hit the Bonanza free spin games, but when you do you will more than likely be walking away with a some extra cash in your pocket thanks to those wilds, and up to 117,649 ways to win.

Our Verdict

Bonanza is a pretty engaging slot with some lovely gameplay, regular wins and a free spins round which results in some big wins when triggered. There’s plenty of action in this game and the Megaways game engine means there’s always something happening. For the best winning opportunities you will look for the Free Spins feature though where the multipliers can quickly have an impact. The enticing Hilbilly music ties the game together.
