Christmas Bonanza slot REVIEW

Christmas Bonanza ReviewWell, it had to happen sooner or later, and Big Time Gaming has resisted what must have been a temptation for plenty of Holiday seasons until now. The Xmas reskin of their most iconic game, and one of the landmark releases in the history of online slots, has finally arrived. Christmas Bonanza offers nothing new except the snow-filled Xmas theme, and even in that department the Megaways inventors haven’t really gone overboard.

Sure, you get wrapped gift boxes instead of gemstones, and the falling snow covers the mining setting, but there is no Santa Claus in sight or anything like that. The soundtrack isn’t really typical for an Xmas release either, but it’s highly enjoyable, and you get the iconic set of features that catapulted the original into stardom. Fans of the original now finally have a seasonal reskin to enjoy in other words, but don’t expect any Xmas mercy from the math model.

Christmas Bonanza Slot Features

The premium symbols pay between 2 and 50 x your stake for 6 of a kind wins, and the Wild symbol steps in for pay symbols to help complete wins. Winning symbols are removed via the Reactions mechanic, and this makes room for new and/or existing symbols to drop down to fill the gaps. New symbols also slide in on the top tracker reel, of course, and the process repeats as long as you keep winning.

The Bonus Round triggers when you spell out G-O-L-D with 4 gold square scatter symbols, and this awards 12 free spins. Landing additional triggering scatters above the minimum gives you +5 extra spins per additional scatter. During the bonus round, you win +5 or +10 extra spins when you land 3 or 4 scatters, respectively.

The bonus round comes with a progressive win multiplier that starts at x1, and it increases by +1 per reaction win. The multiplier comes with no upper limit, and it never resets during the bonus round. Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can purchase the feature for 90x the stake. This guarantees 4+ triggering scatters, and it increases the RTP to 96.11 %.

Review Summary

An Xmas version of one of the most iconic slots ever released seems like a safe bet from BTG, and it’s hard to argue with the SlotRank the original game has achieved and defended over the years. However, it’s possible to criticize this release, while still respecting the original, and our main criticism is that nothing new has been added. This was an opportunity for BTG to let their hair down and go to town with it, but instead they’ve simply added some snow effects and swapped the gems for wrapped Xmas presents.

The math model is as stingy as the miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, before his Christmas miracle transformation, and it’s hard to believe Bonanza has kept its popularity for so long given the steep competition. It became the blueprint for all Megaways installments that followed though, and it’s the breakthrough release that sparked the engines popularity. Nobody can take that away from it, and players now have an Xmas reskin for the Holidays season.
