Sweet Bonanza slot review (Pragmatic Play)
With Sweet Bonanza, Pragmatic Play delivers a sticky sweet and enormously entertaining slot
This slot combines everything that is even a little “hot” at this moment: A buy a bonus feature; cluster pays, and mystery multipliers.
At first glance, it reminds us of Candy Crush, but appearances can be deceiving. The play is fast, full of surprises and can get you simply massive payouts to boot: up to 21,100 x the total bet.
Pragmatic Play has been working hard lately, with excellent results, releasing one first-class slot after another. Just think, for example, of The Dog House and Pirate Gold, which were also released in the second quarter of 2019.
On top of that, Pragmatic Play also found time to set up a brand-new Live Casino line of games: Pragmatic Play Live.
So they are definitely on a roll at this very talented Romanian casino game developer.
How does Sweet Bonanza work?
Sweet Bonanza has no paylines but works with cluster pays. Most of the slots that use the cluster pays are played on large playing fields, and Sweet Bonanza is no exception.
The matrix is 6 x 5 in size, and that means a maximum of 30 of the same symbols in a cluster.
Winning symbols disappear and make room for new ones, for you to be able to create several winning combinations in a row.
The theoretical payout rate varies between 96.48% and 96.51%. Where that tiny difference could come from is not made entirely clear in the rules of the game. We suspect that it is somehow connected to the Buy a bonus feature or the Bet option. With the latter, you pay an extra 25% on your wager, but the chances of winning a bonus round are immediately doubled.
Betting starts at $€ 0.20 up to a maximum of $€ 125 per spin.
The variance is between medium and high.
Symbols and payouts
Winning combinations occur with clusters of 8 or more of the same symbols. The bigger the cluster, the higher the payout.
The red hearts pay out the most: 50 x the total bet with a cluster of 12 or more.
Also very nice are purple, green and blue candies. These are worth between 12 x and 25 x the total bet with a cluster of 12+.
The fruit symbols are the low-value ones, but they can still get you some very nice prizes. During the free spin bonus, that is when all sorts of other forces are released.
Free spin bonus:
Four or more red and white lollipops will reward you with a money prize of up to a maximum of 100 x the bet and 10 free spins.
You can also acquire this immediately with the Buy a Bonus feature: that saves you many less exciting spins and takes you to all that this gorgeous candy store has to offer, immediately.
To buy this free spin bonus, you have to pay straight up 100 x the total bet (exclusive of the Bet option). That is steep, but then Sweet Bonanza can pay out handsomely.
Get extra multipliers up to 100 x
During the free spins, magic balls can appear on the playing field. These award extra multipliers, applied to the total amount won in a game round.
You don’t just get several winning combinations one after another in an ideal spin, but you also get several multipliers. All multipliers are added up.
Say, for example, that you won $€ 3.4 in a turn and multipliers of x 10, x 2, x 25 and x 35. That means you win 3.4 x 72 (10+2+25+35) = $€ 244.80.
The maximum multiplier is 100 x: you really can gather some very nice prize money during the free spins.
Our verdict on the Sweet Bonanza video slot
Pragmatic Play has pulled it off again with Sweet Bonanza: they have produced another super entertaining slot that is different yet very familiar at the same time.
Because of the extra multipliers, every free spin is like a bonbon: “You never know what you are going to get.”
We had an absolute ball with Sweet Bonanza and, full disclosure, it does help when you can end a bonus feature with a win of 800 x the bet.
