Bonanza Falls Slot Review 2024

Big Time Gaming brings back everyone’s favourite Gold Mine classic with a unique twist that will have you on the edge of your seat, in Bonanza Falls!

Bonanza Megaways is a much-loved slot that is well-known for defeating even the most strong-willed players by keeping the ‘D’ at bay for so long, but will the latest in the series be just as tormenting? Let’s play on and find out!

Bonanza Falls Base Game

Bonanza Falls Base Game and Features

Bonanza Falls is a 6-reel Video Slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the Highest-paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.

The minimum bet available here is £.€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€10 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 96.51% and a max win cap of 93,540x.

In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Diamond, followed by Red, Blue, and Green Gems. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine. Wilds appear only on the Sliding Reel, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters and Bonus Coins.

Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels (including the Sliding Reel), making room for new symbols to drop in from above via a Cascade. The remaining symbols on the sliding reel will move over to fill all positions toward the leftmost position.

Win Exchange

Whenever you win 100x your bet or more, you will have the option to exchange this amount for 12 Free Spins. If you win between 25x and 100x your bet, you will also be given the option to exchange the amount for a chance to win 12 Free Spins via a Gamble.

Your chances of a successful Gamble are shown in Green on the Wheel. If the cursor lands on a Green segment, your gamble has paid off and you will receive 12 Free Spins, but if you land on a Red segment, your gamble has lost and you will return to the base game empty-handed.

Bonanza Falls Megadozer Free Spins

Landing 4 Scatters (G.O.L.D) anywhere in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 12 Free Spins. Each additional Scatter after the 4th will award an additional +4 Free Spins. 

During Free Spins, a special Coin Dozer sits above the reel set. This can deliver 1 or more Bonus Coins during any random spin, including reactions.

Each Bonus Coin can reveal one of the following.

  • Wilds that can appear with a Multiplier of up to x5 are added to the reels.
  •  A random symbol from the paytable is added to the reel which counts for multiple instances shown on that particular symbol.
  • An increase in the Win Multiplier by +x1.
  • +4 Additional Free Spins.

Bonanza Falls: Our Verdict

There seems to be no end to Big Time Gaming’s imagination, and it shows in Bonanza Falls. Not much has changed in terms of design since the original Bonanza Megaways made its debut in 2016, yet BTG has kept Bonanza Falls up to date with modern graphics, features, and mechanics that will appeal to all kinds of players.

The Megaways mechanic and Sliding Reel keep the base game interesting, even without all the fancy features and modifiers seen in other slots, but it’s the Free Spins round that really piques our interest.

Showing us there’s more to Bonanza Falls than meets the eye, BTG has come up with a fantastic feature known as the Megadozer, where an old-school Coin Dozer sits above the reel set that relives our youthful days of heading down the Arcades to feed the machines our pennies in a bid to win a cheap keyring or sweet.

However, this Coin Dozer is particularly special as it can reward a number of Bonus Coins that alter the Free Spins round for the better. Multiplier Wilds, Increased Win Multiplier, Enhanced Symbols, and additional Free Spins can all be awarded at the drop of a Bonus Coin!

For those that are still struggling to land the ‘D’, BTG has thrown in a Bonus Buy option for players outside the UK, and it doesn’t cost an arm or a leg either. Yet, for players in the UK, you’re going to have to keep grinding away for that ‘D’ if you are to see the new Megadozer feature in action!
