Sweet Bonanza Xmas Slots

Does the name Sweet Bonanza ring any bells for you? This is the name of another slot game that came out a few years back. Now, though, you can get into the festive spirit with the Sweet Bonanza Xmas slot. There is a lot to get through here in terms of features, so let's see what this snowy slot game holds in store.

Developer information to start with

If you know who released the first game, you'll already know that this one comes from Pragmatic Play.

They always reveal a demo

Yes, they do, and you can certainly get to try it before deciding whether to move on to play the real version.

What's the idea behind this theme?

Sweet Bonanza is all about candy, of course, but this one has a Christmas theme on top of that. It means we can see snowmen in the background and some snow on top of all the fruits and candies appearing on the reels.

What did we make of the Sweet Bonanza Xmas slot design?

They've poured all kinds of colors into this one. It's not as festive as many other slot games based on this season, as none of the icons on the reels are festive. However, the other touches manage to bring a Christmassy feel to the game. It all looks polished too.

How to play the Sweet Bonanza Xmas slot

Expect six reels to appear in this one - yes, six of them, along with five symbols stacked on each reel. There are no progressives involved, but we know there are lots of prizes available to look out for.

The game doesn't include a wild symbol, but there is a scatter - a pink swirly lollipop. You need four or more of these to get a scatter prize.

Are there paylines, cluster pays, or something else?

We're confirming the 'something else' answer here, which might be a surprise. We thought we'd get cluster pays, but instead the game asks you to get enough of the same symbol anywhere in view to receive a prize. You need to get eight or more of most symbols to do this.

The game comes with coin values and bet levels

Bet levels go from one to 10. You can also choose coins worth between a penny and 50 cents. This means the cheapest way to play is with 20 cents per spin, while the most expensive is a huge $100 per spin.

Make your first stop the paytable

Sweet Bonanza Xmas might work a little differently to how you thought it would. This means you should check the paytable first and make sure you understand it all.

Bonus features for the Sweet Bonanza Xmas slot game

Look for the tumble feature during the game. It triggers whenever you get one or more winning combinations. You can guess the rest - winning symbols vanish, everything else falls into the places left behind, and new symbols appear to complete the reel set once again. This carries on for as long as you can find new wins.

Free spins available too

And as always, the scatter is the trigger for these. Find four or more to begin the round on 10 free games. Whenever you find three or more scatters hitting during a free game, you receive another five spins. Remember that these can land anywhere.

The free games also carry a golden bomb, which is a multiplier symbol. It shows values between 2x and 100x. Whenever one or more appear, they'll stay in position until the end of any tumble feature that may occur. When the feature does end, all multipliers are added and the final total multiplies the amount won from the complete tumble feature.

RTP info falls between two figures

Pragmatic Play has given us two figures in the paytable to show the smallest and largest RTP amounts you can expect. The lowest one is 96.48% and the highest is 96.51%, so there isn't much difference - and both are impressive.

Our rating: Did we like Sweet Bonanza Xmas?

There are tons of similarities with the original game, but we do have the festive sn

owy scene to enjoy here as well. It's more wintry than festive in our opinion, but it still offers a switch up from the standard game. We think it's worth a score of 7.5 out of 10.

Does this game have a high winning potential?

Many of Pragmatic Play's games are highly volatile ones. This is a bit lower than usual, and the maximum prize goes to over 21,100x your bet. However, it is still a reasonably volatile game, so bear that in mind.

Demo play is perfect to help you find out more

The best way to play any slot game for the first time is to work with demos, so we're glad Pragmatic Play has done that for us here.

Play for real for a wintry twist on a candy-filled game

With just a 20-cent bet for the cheapest wager, you can see this game is accessible to play for many players. Try it today when you find it at casinos offering Pragmatic Play titles.

Mobile gaming also available

Yes, you've got the chance to play on Android and iOS as well, which is cool.
