Six-reel, five-row slot Sweet Bonanza Slot is powered by software from Malta-based provider Pragmatic Play.
And it’s themed on some of the tastiest treats known to man (or woman) for a reel sugar rush! It’s also eye-candy on any device, with a pastel-hued background depicting a landscape of confectionery under a cobalt sky with candy floss clouds.
It comes with a spoonful of multipliers to make the whole thing even more delectable – not to mention a bouncy soundtrack.
Reels are framed with a distinctive red-and-white candy cane design.
How to play
Play from 0.25 or 0.20 to a high-rolling 125 or 100 respectively a pop, depending on whether you use the Ante Bet feature – the betting range here suits high rollers and more cautious gamers alike. Rather than traditional Paylines, this slot has a pays-all-ways game mechanism.
To form a win, scoop at least eight of the same icon wherever you like on the reels; literally anywhere will do. Clearly, the more matching icons you have, the greater your reward. And you can even enjoy winning combos involving more than one icon from a single whirl of the reels.
Sweet Bonanza Slot works with the sweet and fruit icons falling down on to the grid, instead of the more conventional spinning reels. With this Tumble element, contributing icons are whisked away following every win, before new ones drop down in their place, a process that recurs until there are no fresh winning combos.
Equally, the game uses cash instead of coins to display Paytable payouts, which can make life easier.
Sweet Bonanza Slot Special Features
The set of symbols incorporates the less rewarding fruit – bananas, grapes, apples, melons and plums. Among the premium icons are sweets in blue, red, green and purple, of which the red heart-shaped candy is your best payer. Land a dozen of these to be in line for a tidy 50x stake payday.
The Scatter here is the lollipop icon, which as usual grants access to the free spins round.
Hitting four, five or six lollipops from one spin is the trigger you need to kick off this feature. Start with 10 wager-free whirls, along with a further prize of up to 100x stake.
Then there’s the rainbow-coloured Candy Bomb, offering the chance for multipliers worth from 2x to 100x wager.
Enjoy five more freebies from any three or more extra Scatters landed while this perk is in play, up to an unlimited maximum. What’s more, you can pay for instant access to this feature, at a price of 100x stake. (However, this option is not currently available to players in the UK.)
Landing multiple candy bombs is your key to getting towards maximum payout since multipliers are combined to multiply total winnings.
Sweet Bonanza may not have a progressive jackpot, instead, its top win is a whopping 21,100x stake.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player in Sweet Bonanza Slot is a good average at 96.48%. And don’t be fooled by the saccharine theme – volatility is on the higher side of medium, so things can get quite spicy.
You’ll love indulging in this thoroughly decadent game if you have a sweet tooth. One reviewer has said that base-game play can get a little ‘tedious’, and similar candy-themed slots are admittedly readily available. But, overall, Sweet Bonanza is entertaining and with a clear, colourful design.
