Bonanza Megapays Review
The original Bonanza Megaways is one of Big Time Gaming's most iconic slots as it paved the way for the incredible Megaways mechanic. Therefore, it's no surprise that Big Time Gaming has teamed up with Relax Gaming to deliver the new Megapays mechanic that combines progressive jackpots with the Megaways engine.
Free spins and 'reactions' return to ensure that the gameplay is entertaining. Bonanza Megapays is almost identical to the original - except with the addition of a progressive jackpot. If you love Megaways and jackpots, then this is the slot for you.
The entire background of Bonanza Megapays is set in a gold mining camp during the Wild West. There are small little huts next to a cliff with mining carts above them leading into the gold mines. The reels are also covered by plant life and rocks to showcase the primitive aspects of the mine.
Fitting in with the Wild West mining theme, there are a variety of different gems alongside numbers. Overall, the design fits in well with the theme of the slot and looks great whilst doing it.
As for music, there's a fast-paced banjo tune that sounds like it's straight from The Beverly Hillbillies. There are other sounds such as gunshots and 'yeehaws' throughout to emphasise the cowboy theme. Overall, it completely transports you to the Wild West!
The main reels spin normally with the Megaways mechanic opening up 117,649 ways to win. Above the reels, there is an extra row for even more wins with it adding symbols to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Aside from this, the gameplay is straightforward with anyone being able to pick up the gameplay.
To the right of the reels, you'll notice the big green spin button. Sitting above the spin button, there is a setting and autospin button which is followed by the bet level. If you ever get stuck, just look to the right of the reels for assistance.
The RTP of Bonanza Megapays is 96.4% which is a decent amount but the jackpots lower it to 86.8% which is expected. It's a high volatility slot which means that players can expect less frequent payouts, but for them to be high when they do. The maximum win without the jackpot is 17,926x stake which can be won during the free spins round with the increasing unlimited multiplier.
Aside from that, you can expect to win on the four progressive jackpots. Each spin can trigger the Megapays feature and land 4 or more Megapays symbols which can activate the jackpot. To win the biggest jackpot seeded at £300,000, you'll need to land 15 or more Megapays symbols.
The original slot released in 2016 and became a staple in the online slot community. Now with an added progressive jackpot, hopefully, Bonanza Megapays will become a mainstay.
All of the brilliant features from the original are back but this time with an even bigger payout with the jackpot. If you love jackpots and the original, then it's a no brainer to check out this slot. It's definitely a spectacle of a slot and worth a spin for the amazing jackpots.
