Sports Bonanza Accumul8 Base Game

Sports Bonanza Accumul8 Base Game and Features

Sports Bonanza Accumul8 is a 6×5 Video Slot with Accumul8 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 8 or more of the same symbol types land in non-adjacent positions on the grid.

The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€10 per spin, with a small choice of bets in between the two. Sports Bonanza Accumul8 has a theoretical RTP of 95.95% and a maximum win capacity of 20,000x.

Like most Scatter pay titles, Sports Bonanza Accumul8 makes use of the Cascading  Reels feature. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the grid and new symbols will fall down from above. Once a Cascade occurs, there is a chance that more winning combinations will form.

In terms of symbols, both High and Low-paying symbols represent a particular Ball used in a mix of sports. The highest paying regular symbol in Sports Bonanza Accumul8 is the Rugby Ball, followed by the Cricket Ball, Golf Ball and Tennis Ball. Low-paying symbols fall to the American Football, Basketball, Baseball, 8-Ball and Bowling Ball.

During the base game, you will come across 2 levels of Mulipltiers in Bronze and Silver. The Bronze balls deliver a Multiplier between 2x and 10x and the Silver balls appear with a Multiplier between 12x and 25x.

Once a Multiplier symbol lands in view, it will remain on the grid until no further Cascades occur. The total Multiplier amount is then added to the total win for that particular spin.

If more than one Multiplier is present, the total value of both Multipliers is added together and then applied to the total win for that spin. Please note that Silver Multipliers will only be present on Reels 3 and 4 in the base game.

During the Free Spins round there are 3 levels of Multipliers in play, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Gold balls deliver a Multiplier between 30x and 250x.

Sports Bonanza Accumul8: Our Verdict

The end of Summer is bittersweet but it’s almost upon us, and playing Summer Vibes Accumul8 might feel to cruel to those who can’t stand the looming winter months.

If playing something like this just makes you too lustful of the beaming sun and warmth, then Sports Bonanza Accumul8 might well be the answer. We do have the World Cup coming up, after all.

On top of this, Sports Bonanza is a slightly upgraded version of the original idea, with multipliers that are possible in the Base Game to boost the potential. Even though it’s an improvement on their previous game, Light and Wonder could still stand to take further inspiration from those that have taken like-minded games further.

Such improvements could include multipliers that persist and trigger when new multipliers come into play, like Gates of Olympus by Pragmatic Play. The accumul8 series is still young though, and Sports Bonanza Accumul8 has certainly improved on what Summer Vibes built, or so it would seem at first.

The win potential here is actually a little lower if you dig into the statistics, with 20,000x as a maximum value compared to Summer Vibes’ 24,000x.

It’s still a substantial figure, so players would forgive the watered down version should they be lucky enough to hit a 20,000x win.

Overall, Sports Bonanza Accumul8 caters to sports fans everywhere, but hardcore slot players are want more from their games than football players do from their teams, so it might not please everyone.
