Christmas Bonanza Megaways slot is simply a copy of Bonanza slot from the same developer Big Time Gaming. At last, after 5 Christmases they've jazzed it up for winter with snow, the same music but with some background bells added but otherwise little has changed. Pragmatic has made a decent Xmas one before this with Christmas Carol Megaways slot and iSoftBet weighed in with the less cheery Scrooge Megaways so BTG seems late to the party here. So can this new cold Bonanza retain any of the old warmth or will it be another case of Santa missing our chimney this year?
On the reels...
Christmas Bonanza Megaways has 2-7 rows on each of its six reels so 324-117647 ways to win, with a top reel of 4 single symbols where the Wilds can appear in the form of now snow-capped gold bars. There are stacked and single symbols but the old gems are now replaced by presents of the same colors, so 6-of-a-kind purple ones pay 50x bet, the red 7.5x, blue or green 2x with six card values paying 1.75 down to 0.8x with winning tiles replaced from above. The scatters are the same gold blocks and we have no modifiers here.
Free Games Bonus
As before, Christmas Bonanza Megaways requires 4 gold bar scatters to trigger the free games and will have the letters G-O-L-D spelled out on them. Any over the four scatters will display +5 and award 5 more spins to your normal 12 for the basic 4-scatter trigger. You get an increasing multiplier of 1x for each win that appears and this won't decrease between spins. On the top scroll, 3-scatters will award +5 spins and 4 will award +10 spins during the feature. We are told 26,000x is possible but the trigger only comes in around every 450 spins on average so prepare to be patient, unless you live outside the UK and can buy it for a 90x bet.
Bonanza is still the most popular 'Megaways' slot so this release cannot go wrong as little has changed bar the appearance and (annoying!) music slightly. The RTP is still the same at 96% as is the base game's big winning possibilities, over 5000x has been seen on the original. The feature remains exciting if very volatile so after waiting a while for it to land, it can easily pay no more than 5-10x for example which is maddening. When it's good it's good, when it's bad you may need to replace the device you're playing it on...
