Sweet Bonanza

Sweet Bonanza

Sweet Bonanza is a new, tasty slot from Pragmatic Play. As most slot players will have gathered from the title of the release, this is a game which busies itself with a sweets and candy theme. Sweet Bonanza always features a cracking payline structure. While not being a MegaWays slot itself, the game does try and compete with those popular Barcrest and Blueprint titles. How so? Players need only look at the slot’s engine.

This is a game which features 6 reels and an All Ways Pays payline structure. Given that there is a surplus of paylines (although admittedly, perhaps not as many as in a MegaWays release), players can get away with dirt cheap bets costing just 20p a game. Maximum bets are capped at £100 a spin, with prizes set to 100x whatever you’ve wagered. A Buy-a-Bonus feature can be switched on during gameplay, and that will raise your stake by up to 100x your bet.

Special features

Sweet Bonanza features plenty of juicy fruits and symbols. The sweeties and candy icons are far more rewarding than their healthier counterparts, though. Sweet Bonanza may not have the Cascading Reels engine that MegaWays slots have, but it does have a Tumbling Reels engine. This will see all winning icons removed from the reels and replaced by new symbols. If winning combos continue to be created on the reels, then the tumbling feature will continue to dish out what are essentially re-spins.

A single free spin bonus round has also been worked into this slot. Players need to land lollipop symbols on the reels to activate this bonus. In fact, you’ll need between 4 and 6 of them (one per reel) to trigger the round. Alternatively, players can opt to buy the bonus outright. Doing so will cost a hefty figure of 100x the standard bet, though. It is a slot feature that very few players are going to be able to afford to do for any lengthy period.

Notably, there doesn’t appear to be any wild symbols in this slot. There are multipliers, although these only tend up in the free spin bonus. We might as well look at that round now, then.

Bonus features

Players will begin the free spin round in Sweet Bonanza with an instant win cash prize of 2x, 4x or 80x their total bet, depending on whether they landed 4, 5 or 6 scatters. On top of that, 10 free spins are offered to players. During this round, candy bomb icons can boost wins whatever multiplier happens to appear on them. These symbols can raise your winnings by as much as 100x. Additional free spins can be won with just three scatters during this round.

Overview

Sweet Bonanza has a lot in common with other candy-themed UK slots. It is a tasty release which can provide a wealth of decent wins. The multipliers are most certainly profitable when struck during the free spin bonus round. However, the Buy-a-Bonus mode will be a little out of the league for most players.
