Christmas Bonanza Overview
If you are a little bit familiar with the history of online slot games or Megaways slots, than you know Bonanza for sure. This was not the first Megaways slot game ever released, but it was the one that probably made the most impact and made the mechanism extremely popular. So popular that almost every provider these days releases Megaways slots.
Well of course all providers are releasing their Christmas games. And Big Time Gaming is no different. But this provider chose to release a reskin of Bonanza Megaways. With a small, but cool added bonus buy feature.
The game is played on 6 reels which are randomly between 2 and 7 symbols high during each spin. And a row of 4 symbols above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. You can get a maximum of 117.649 ways during each spin.
Christmas Bonanza still uses the mining theme, but now in a winter setting. And the gems have been replaced by presents. The rest is all the same. Wild symbols only appear on the top row of symbols and scatter symbols still spell out the word GOLD
Christmas Bonanza comes with very nice maximum payout of 26.000 times your bet.
Christmas Bonanza Features
Every winning combination is removed from the reels and all symbols fall down. New symbols fall on top and/or are added to the top row. After this you can get another winning combination and the process keeps repeating until no new winning combinations appear.
Free Spins Feature
If you get 4 scatter symbols, spelling GOLD, you will trigger 12 free spins. For each extra scatter symbol appearing you will receive 5 more extra free spins.
During free spins the multiplier starts at x1 and will increase by x1 after each reaction. With no limit.
During free spins special carts with gold appear on the top row. Three of them will add 5 more free spins. Four of them will add 10 more free spins.
This Christmas version comes with the option to buy the free spins feature. For 90 times your bet you will trigger 12 free spins.
Of course there is not that much new. They changed the theme. And this looks nice, but I do think it could have been a little better. It’s really just some snow and gifts instead of gems.
But I really appreciate that they have added the Bonus Buy feature. As some of you might know, triggering free spins on Bonanza could be really hard. Sometimes getting very frustrating even. So now, if you don’t want to wait, you can just buy it instantly. And I know a lot of players will really enjoy this added feature.
And another detail, this version has a much higher maximum payout. The original can go up to 12.000 times, this one can go up to 26.000 times your bet.
Overall it’s still the same amazing game it was when Big Time Gaming released it a couple of years ago. So you can’t go wrong.
