About Bonanza

I had no idea what to expect when I first loaded Big Time Gaming's Bonanza slot, as I went in completely blind. Figuring the game could be based on the old television show of the same name, I was surprised to see that the game instead revolves around gem mining. With that being said, the game is a ton of fun to play as the game manages to bring cascading reels and a huge number of paylines to players through the use of BTG's Megaways mechanic.

The game is a great five reel video slot that manages to mix in a shifting 3 reel tier up top that fills with new symbols on every spin. The game is set against a gem mine backdrop, complete with a waterwheel cascading on the side. The game's symbols include a number of card symbols (9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) as well as a green emerald, blue sapphire, red ruby, and a brilliantly cut diamond.

Feature wise, the Bonanza slot is shallow but it is still a lot of fun to play. The slot only manages to mix in wild symbols and scatters. Players need to land four scatters to spell out the word "Gold" to get 12 free spins in the game, which can be added to if a +5 gold symbol pops up during the free spins. The unique reel set gives this game the possibility of a huge 117,649 ways to win, though due to the way Megaways works, the number of ways or paylines changes with almost every spin of the reels.

Despite the lack of other features, the Megaways system combined with the cascading reels makes the game a blast to play. The game has a posted theoretical return to player percentage of 96%, which is considered to be decent for an online slot machine.

If you're looking for a game that looks a bit different but manages to pack in some good features, then I highly suggest you take a look at Bonanza. This is certainly one of Big Time Gaming's better slots and is certainly worth your time.

I tried this game yesterday for the first time. I really loved it, it took me quite some time to get the bonus round, but when I finally did, it paid me 200x bet win, so it was worth waiting for. I like the design and overall it seems to be a wonderful slot.

Yes BTG make some interesting games with their unique reel systems. I'm not much of a fan of this one though as the way it is designed the reels don't really stand out from the background and it looks a bit of a mess to me. Of their other games I prefer Queen of Riches.

My absolutely favourite slot!! You should be very careful though as it can take everything and just keep you entertained with the very fast catchy tune 😂
But when this slot is on fire it's burning up!!!!! And will reward you very well...!!! I have had some huge wins in this slot and just love everything about it - must try!!!!!

Interestingly, I fell in love with BIG TIME GAMING since trying them on vidioslot. this game is very potential and gives great returns although at a glance seems left behind

A boring game from BTG, I tried nearly 200 spins and no good returns, but do not understand how others become fans of the bonanza, maybe they got a good impression of this game, but not for me

I saw some huge wins from this game, so, myself also tried this game a few times, but, only got over 100 x bet once, then, didn't really get anything nice yet.

Free spin feature is very very difficult to get...

Yeah, exactly what I've been thinking about it, design could be a lot better but generally this one
gives you a good feeling about your chances in terms of winning.

its quite popular between the people but i dint find it attractive because all my first sessions were boring and no big wins at all. But probably its worth to try it more often...

I updated my review about the Bonanza where in 2018 I wrote a review which was much different from what I will write here now.
Well, first of all, right now, the game I love the most and become number one is Bonanza. it can't be bothered (for now).
Whether what makes me really admire the bonanza, maybe from the potential they have, or from other things such as the soundtrack,or the scatter symbol which is very shiny, what is clear is that bonanza is always the first door after the deposit. although I haven't found a super win yet but I'm sure one day I will get a really good one
