Sweet Bonanza is a 6-reel, win all ways slot machine produced by Pragmatic Play, and it has an abundance of both candies and fresh fruit. The Tumble element is fundamental to the gameplay, as it causes chain reactions when winning combinations occur, removing and replacing symbols as they are used to create new winning combinations. This sort of game engine has been available for a while, but it has recently seen a surge in popularity due to its ability to slightly prolong gameplay and allow players to interact with the slot in a manner more like to that of cross-platform video games.
In Sweet Bonanza, you not only have access to a vast (6×5) playground, but also a number of interesting elements that will keep you on your toes. The highlight is a bonus round of free spins where multipliers of up to 100x might be dropped at random. But first, you must choose between betting 20x and 25x. The free spins bonus may be purchased at level 20x (from €0.20 to €100 per spin) for 100 times your stake. The bonus purchase feature is removed and more scatter symbols are introduced to the reels at wager level 25x (0.25 to 125€ per spin), increasing the player’s odds of triggering the bonus feature by a factor of two.
You are cordially invited to a surreal Willy Wonka-esque land of frozen treats, baked goods, and sweets. The reels are a riot of color, with candies and fruits like apples, plums, melons, grapes, and bananas represented by gem-shaped symbols. The green, blue, and purple candies are the most precious. If you get 12 to 30 of the red heart candies anywhere on the reels at once, you will receive 40 times your wager.
Features of Sweet Bonanza (A Pragmatic Play)
The Free Spins bonus is the main draw of Sweet Bonanza, a slot with medium to high volatility. To trigger it, you need to land 4, 5 or 6 lollipop scatter symbols simultaneously – this will reward you 2, 4 or 80 times your bet and 10 free spins. Five more free games are added to your total if three or more scatters appear during the feature.
All of the foundations from the standard game are present, with the extra bonus of multipliers at random. Keep an eye out for the sugar bombs! These can increase your earnings by a factor of two to a stunning one hundred.
Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner (Pragmatic Play)
While Sweet Bonanza will not cause a surge in your blood sugar, the bonus payouts here may be worth up to 21,100 times your initial wager, which is enough to get your heart racing. The visuals aren’t the best, and the gameplay can be a little perplexing at first because symbols don’t need to be next on adjacent reels to make winning combos, but you’ll get used to it.
The main game is boring because there is no real goal other than to get the bonus. However, once you do, you’ll experience feelings similar to those of a child in a candy store. In order to maximize the thrills, the feature is designed so that when a huge multiplier sugar bomb lands on the reels, the player must first let the Tumble feature play out, hoping that the sugar bomb will grow as large as possible so that it can be multiplied. Excellent!
While not the finest slot machine we’ve ever played, this is nevertheless another solid release from Pragmatic Play. Don’t go crazy on the candy, it won’t do you any good.
