Bonanza Slot Special Features

The 6 mining reels of Bonanza slot feature an abundance of mesmerisingly beautiful gemstones to get your hands on; amethyst, ruby, topaz and emeralds aplenty. Amethysts are the most valuable followed by the others, and then the lowest value symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. 

Amethyst Fun Facts!

  • If you have amethyst or you are just a fan of gemstones, here are some interesting facts about it that you may not have known.
  • The ancient Greeks believed that amethyst prevented drunkenness.
  • Cleopatra wore amethyst in her ring, with an engraved image of Mithras, a Persian deity known in Rome as Deus Sol Invictus ("invincible sun")
  • The oldest known stone in the crown jewels of England is the amethyst first worn in the 11th century by Edward (1042 - 1066)
  • Medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battles.
  • During the Renaissance, amethyst was carved into the figure of a bear and used as a protective talisman. As such, people wore it for a variety of reasons: for vigilance, against battle injuries, against infectious diseases, for shrewdness, and as an antidote.
  • There is a very rare and prized amethyst enhydro. It is an amethyst crystal with trapped moving or static water bubbles that are millions of years old.
  • Today, bishops often wear an oval-shaped amethyst, usually very large, with an episcopal seal directly engraved into the surface of the gem.

You’ll soon notice a mining cart appearing at the top of the reels during each spin in the base game. This cart carries 4 random symbols which it adds to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 each during each roll of the reels, allowing greater opportunity for winning combinations.

To further boost your chances, Big Time Gaming also offer a reactions feature; this is whereby every symbol that takes part in a winning combination is replaced by falling symbols from above (or from the right if that winning symbol is in the mining cart). This valuable feature can lead to multiple winning combinations during one spin alone!

The scatter symbols are golden letters which spell out the word ‘GOLD’, and they can appear anywhere on the reels in the main game. Land all 4 letters and you’ve won a total of 12 free spins; land any extra scatters and you’ve bagged yourself an additional 5 free spins.

Fun Fact!

Gold is a mineral that has been mined and sought for over 5,000 years. There's a reason why "Gold Rush" is a famous term to this day. But what you and those old miners might not be aware of is that you can find gold closer than you'd believe. In fact, wherever you go there's gold going alongside.

Believe it or not, the human body contains minuscule traces of gold, and it's not like it's something some people accidentally swallow through their food. Gold actually keeps us running, or to be exact it helps our joints remain in proper shape. While we have known for years that our bodies contain gold it took a long time to realize what it did to begin with, so the knowledge of it's impact on joints is relatively recent.

In a sense, we are walking goldmines, and the presence of gold in our bodies goes a long way to show how unique humans truly are.

The wild symbol is the mighty dynamite image; only present within the cart. This advantageous icon will substitute all symbols in Bonanza slot, barring the scatter symbols.

Finally, one of Bonanza’s most special features is Megaways™; this enables each reel alone or in conjunction with the cart to hold up to 7 symbols. Ultimately, each spin offers up to a jumbo 117649 megaways to win.

Fun Fact!

The Word “Bonanza” is of course synonymous with a situation which generates a sudden upturn in wealth, luck, or fortune. But did you know the expression was coined around 1859 by mineworkers when a huge deposits of silver ore where discovered at the Comstock Lode silver ore mines under the town of Virginia City, Nevada in the USA.
