BONANZA MEGAWAYS SLOT CASCADING REELS
CASCADING REELS ON BONANZA MEGAWAYS SLOT
FEATURE TEASE FROM CASCADING REELS ON BONANZA MEGAWAYS SLOT
Bonanza features cascading reels, so when you land a winning spin the symbols that make up your wins will disappear and be replaced with new symbols. This applies to the additional symbols you receive at the top for reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 also. You may have seen this before on slots such as Extra Chilli Megaways.
You can get very lucky from this if you get several cascades, and it can produce some good sized wins. Also look out for the feature symbols landing in during the cascades, ideally you need to be seeing at least two of the letters that make up the word GOLD from your initial win to stand a chance, if you get 3 letters then the cascade will momentarily pause to the sound of a heartbeat, from here you could be entering the free spins round.
BONANZA MEGAWAYS FREE SPINS FEATURE
FEATURE ACTIVATED WITH EXTRA SPINS ON BONANZA MEGAWAYS SLOT
17 FREE SPINS ON BONANZA MEGAWAYS
The free spins feature is activated on Bonanza by the letters of the word GOLD landing anywhere in view, if you land all 4 letters you will be awarded 12 free spins, however an additional +5 scatter symbol can also land, so potentially you can start the feature with well over 20 spins. The most I've started with on Bonanza is 27 free spins, and I did recently see a video of somebody who triggered the feature with an amazing 37 free spins.
START OF THE FEATURE ON BONANZA MEGAWAYS
INCREASING MULTIPLIER WITH EACH WIN DURING THE FREE SPIN FEATURE
Once the free spins feature begins you really want to be seeing as many wins as possible, and ideally these coming through the cascades. Each time you achieve a win your multiplier will increase by x1, so if you can get a run of cascades early into your free spins then you stand a chance of having a very high multiplier toward the end of your feature.
Extra free spins can be awarded on the additional reels above the main ones, 3 carts of gold will award 5 extra spins, and 4 carts will add 10 extra spins.
It states in the game information that it is an unlimited multiplier and potentially unlimited free spins, the most free spins I've ever had is 27, and the highest I've had the multiplier is x 24.
BONANZA MEGAWAYS SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Bonanza Megaways is arguably the best game that Big Time Gaming have ever made and released, it's certainly one of my all time favourite games and I'll always have some spins on this during an online session.
It can be notoriously hard to hit the bonus, but I've always seemed to have quite good luck on triggering the free spins. I have read on several forums over the years though of people going 1000s of spins without getting a feature, so it's worth keeping that in mind if you do decide to play Bonanza.
This slot really can go from the sublime to the ridiculous, I've had some really good wins on Bonanza and my best return for the stake I was playing on was 1300x at a €0.40 stake. The flip side I recently got a feature on a €4 stake that paid €0.60, so that was 0.15x my stake.
If you're playing with a bonus balance and need to wager plenty of cash then Bonanza can be a very good slot to play. As a rule the base game keeps your balance ticking over and tends to give you good value for your money, so this is particularly useful to work through a wagering requirement, you should of course make sure that you are ok to play Bonanza if you have accepted a bonus and that it doesn't break any T&C's.
Excellent slot from BTG!
