Sweet Bonanza Xmas Review
You no longer have to wish for Christmas everyday, as you can get it with Sweet Bonanza Xmas. Step foot into this winter wonderland filled with adorable foods and fun prices. It’s the sequel to the much-beloved Sweet Bonanza and is developed by the illustrious Pragmatic Play.
Just like its predecessor, Sweet Bonanza Xmas features a 6-reel tumbling system with up to 3,125x ways to win. The game brings back the food theme but blends it into Christmas, making it the best of both worlds. Christmas is a time for miracles, and hopefully Sweet Bonanza Xmas will give you some too.
It’s almost identical to the first game, but with more of a Christmas tone to it. Snowmen and festive treats take over this time. The symbols on the reels have all been given a little snow for a holiday makeover. If you absolutely love Christmas, then you’ll love this. It’s a winter wonderland delight that’ll make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. The music has even been given a Christmas upgrade. It features bells and more chimes to show that Christmas is upon us again.
Whilst the design is cute and a dream for anyone who loves Christmas - it’s a little repetitive compared to the first one. The symbols are changed but only slightly. It would’ve been more effective if the symbols were changed to more festive ones such as a candy cane or a gingerbread man. The lack of change just seems lazy from the developers and makes it a little boring to play at times.
Sweet Bonanza Xmas plays exactly the same as the first game. You have a bet multiplier that you can activate at the start with a chance to win free spins and even more multipliers. If you enjoyed Sweet Bonanza, then you’ll enjoy this.
Menus are featured in the same place as the first game with them all being underneath the reels. You can decide on sounds, your bet and other features from here. Instructions are available as well in case you need them. The spin and autospin buttons are at the bottom right of the screen with bets between 0.20 to 100.00 with a possibility of 100 autospins.
Both games in the Sweet Bonanza series have the same RTP at 96.51% which is well above the average. Combined with the chance to win 3,125x your initial bet, this makes it even more likely to score big. With multipliers and free spins, you could win up to 21,100x your initial bet.
The biggest change is that this game now features a medium to high volatility level as opposed to the fully high one from the first game. Wins can be high and substantial, but they may not be as frequent as you like.
If you loved the first game or adore anything Christmas related, then you’ll love Sweet Bonanza Xmas. Don’t expect too much coming into this sequel as it’s almost exactly the same as the first game. It certainly feels a little cheap at times with the gameplay repeated but it’s hard to hate as the festive feeling will fill you with happiness.
As long as you go in knowing that it’s a clone of Sweet Bonanza but with a Christmas outfit on - you’ll enjoy it. If you want a food themed slot with a little more substance, then try out Reel Rush.
