Bursting with vivid colours, Sweet Bonanza has been developed by Pragmatic Play where eye-catching candy and fruit symbols tumble onto a 6x5 grid, rather than the conventional spin of the reels.
Something else that will grab a players attention is the tantalising prospect of winning up to x21,100 a players bet stake. That’s right; the Sweet Bonanza slot is bursting with brilliant bonuses that help players feast on massive wins. These include the popular Tumbling feature, Candy Bombs that multiply wins by up to x100, and a tasty free spins feature that you can purchase at the cost of x100 a players stake.
Sweet Bonanza is an explosion of colour. A bizarre world made up of candies and cakes form the colourful backdrop. On the reels themselves, players will see an assortment of candy and fruit icons. They include grapes, bananas, melons, plums and apples.
The top rewarding symbols are the green, blue and purple sweets. The top payer is the red heart. Landing eight or nine of these anywhere on the reels for a payout of eight times a bet stake. Ten or eleven of them grant twenty times a players bet. Land twelve or more for a whopping payout of forty times a players bet stake.
After forming a winning combination, the Tumble feature kicks in and a tumble takes place. The winning icons are removed from play, and new ones fall in and replace them. These tumbles continue provided a unique winning combination is formed.
The Free Spins are triggered by landing four, five or six of the lollipop scatter symbols on the same spin - players will then receive two, four or eighty times their bet stake plus ten free spins.
Players should keep an eye out for the candy bomb symbols. These come with a multiplier which can boost a players tumbling wins by between x2 and x100. Landing three scatter symbols on the same free spin, and players will receive another five free spins added to their total.
Pragmatic Play has gone overboard with the visuals here although the gameplay is pretty straightforward. The tumbling reels continue to entertain, and the multipliers help in the Free Spins round. The variance is medium to high with possible wins of x21,100 a players stake in the round with the possible x100 multiplier.
With its colourful psychedelic visuals, Sweet Bonanza won’t be to all tastes. It is not something punters will be coming back for more; however, it could give them a quick sugar rush if they enjoy colourful video slot themes.
There certainly isn’t any shortage of candy-themed slots, yet very few offer the mouth-watering levels of potential that Sweet Bonanza delivers. This is mostly thanks to the Tumble feature and those multiplying Candy Bombs that explode during the Free Spins feature.
