Sweet Bonanza is an online slot made by Pragmatic Play and this Candy-inspired game offers mega win-potential of more than 5,000X your stake. The free-spins round sees multipliers dropped onto the reels which are then applied to wins.

First Impressions

The first thing you’ll notice is the vibrancy. It’s in your face and screams colour, and this juicy appeal isn’t something you can miss. It’s a very aesthetically pleasing slot with a lighthearted, fun-loving theme based around - you’ve guessed it - sweet treats. Sweets and fruit adorn the reels while the background is a sweetie wonderland with pink fluff at the foreground and rolling clouds in the blue skies above. The rainbow of colours draws your attention instantly. 

Theme

Sweet Bonanza is a delicious and delectable online slot that also has a bit of a healthy edge to it. Along with the candy land backdrop and sweets all over the reels, there are also plenty of fruits like apples, plums, bananas and grapes. The game also features a cheery soundtrack that will definitely make you smile as you’re spinning the reels.

It’s a little bit of a different look for a Pragmatic Play online slot, but it’s a welcome change. Rather than realistic-style graphics, this game has a cartoony look with almost 3D graphics. The result is a fun and cheerful game that keeps you entertained.

A gentle and light digital soundtrack accompanies gameplay, with delicate chimes to add to the sweet nature of the slot. A little more oomph comes in when the reels are spun and there are satisfying soft clunks when symbols fall into place. Arcade-style effects celebrate symbol combinations as the different fruits and sweets pop and prizes are granted.

How to Play

Here's a quick guide to get to started:

  1. Load the game and click 'i' to view the rules and payouts.
     
  2. Click the Three lines button to choose total bet, sound, quick spins and battery saver options.
     
  3. Click 'Autoplay'  and select your number of spins as well as your stop/start limits.
     
  4. Decide on a session budget, then click 'Play' and enjoy responsibly.

There are 9 base game symbols. 4 of these are different coloured sweets, and 5 are fruits, including red apples, watermelons, plums, grapes and bananas. Each pays out for different amounts on the reels. Rather than the usual case of matching symbol on paylines paying out in most slots, with Sweet Bonanza you just need to get 8 or above of a symbol to win, anywhere on the reels. Prizes are set for 8 to 9, 10 to 11, or 12 and over of each symbol on the screen, with the red heart sweet, followed by the pinky-purple square sweet, being the most valuable. The pink swirl lollipop is the scatter; this is present on all reels, pays in any position, and it’s the most valuable of any symbol, with 6 being worth 20.00 coins, 5 being worth 1.00 and 4 being worth 0.60.

Underneath the reels, you’ll find a translucent horizontal bar on which the game options are displayed. To the left, you’ll be able to toggle sound on/off, access game settings and game information. Next up is your credit and bet, and your win amount is in the middle. To the right, you’ll notice the main spin button, with autoplay underneath and a +/- to either side. In the settings menu, you’ll find options for sound toggle on/off of ambient sound and sound effects, quick spin and game history. The information pages will show you further game information, rules and the paytable.

To play, use the +/- to either side of the main spin button. This opens a pop up where you can adjust individual aspects of your bet. The bet multiplier will be noted at the top and then you’ll have three options to set: your bet, coin value and total bet. This effectively means you can adjust whichever aspects you wish and the others will tally up to match. For example, you could decide on your total bet itself and by inputting this the bet and coin value will automatically change.

Bets start from 1 up to 10. Coin value starts at just 0.01 to 0.50. Therefore, with a max bet of 10 and max coin value of 0.50, the total wager max is 100.00 coins. On the other hand, a minimum bet of 1 and a minimum coin value of 0.01 results in a minimum total wager of 0.20 coins. It’s worth considering this would actually be a 125.00 coin max bet if the user decides to place a 25.00 coin ante bet.

If you want to take things up a notch you can set autoplay, and this comes with thorough customisation options. You can choose the number of auto spins between 10 to 100 and the ways in which to stop autospins. For instance, stop if cash decreases by a set amount, stop if single win exceeds a set amount or if your cash increases by a certain amount. You can also choose to stop on any win or if a feature is won. Within these options are also modes for turbo spin and quick spin.

To the left of the reels is the option to place an additional bet; click here to turn it on/off. It will tell you the amount you would need to play for this ante bet and what you're betting for. The value of this ante bet depends on your wagering amount, and each ante bet behaves differently. There are two bet types possible: A bet multiplier 20x where you can purchase a free spins round by paying a value from your credit for a value equal to that of 100x the total bet, or a bet multiplier 25x for double the chance of winning the free spins round naturally, with more scatters available on the reels.

RTP & Volatility

The return to player (RTP) is 96.51%. It is also a medium volatility slot with a high variance edge. As a result, players can expect to earn generous payouts; however, they may come around less often than they would in a low or medium variance game.

How to Win at Sweet Bonanza Slot

This is a Pay Anywhere online slot. In this game, you’ll receive a payout wherever matching symbols land, so long as there are 8 or more of them on the reels. This is a pretty unique payout as most online slots like this require the symbols to land in a group, but this isn’t the case in this slot. This also means that there’s no wild symbol.

There is also a tumble mechanic at play in this online slot. So, whenever you hit a winning combination, those symbols will be removed and new symbols will take their places to help you land more wins.

The most generous regular symbol in the game is the heart candy, which pays out a prize worth 40x your stake when 12 or more of them land on the reels. The scatter pays out a prize of 80x for six landing on the reels. It also only needs 4 symbols to appear in order to award you a prize.

Sweet Bonanza Tips, Tricks, Cheats and Strategy

A random number generator (RNG) is in place to provide fair, totally random outcomes that can’t be manipulated or in any way predicted. As a result, players can’t cheat or really strategise. Instead, we would recommend getting a feel for the slot first. Our free Slots Temple demo is the ideal opportunity to do this as you familiarise yourself with the rules, RTP and general gameplay to help you decide whether it’s one you would want to play with an online casino.

Try to replicate the sorts of bets you would stake with real cash, and aim for at least 150 free spins to get to grips with the slot. Before playing with real cash, set yourself a budget; decide how much you’re willing and able to spend and don’t exceed this and try to split any winnings between cashing out to your bank account and adding to your bankroll. Try to set aside enough to cover at least 50 spins, as this should help you accrue some wins so that you’re not running at a loss.

Sweet Bonanza Free Spins and Bonuses

Four or more scatters will trigger the free spins round. During this round, you’ll receive 10 free spins during which multiplier bombs appear on the reels. It applies a multiplier between 2x and 100x to your wins and multiple bombs are added together to really help you land big wins.

You can also trigger two types of ante bets related to the free spins game. The first requires a small extra wager to double your chances of triggering the free spins bonus. Or, you could simply outright buy the bonus game by multiplying you wager by 10x.

Sweet Bonanza Demo Play

Here at Slots Temple, you can play as a demo slots game. You have 500 free-play credits to spend on this slot (which can be replenished when you refresh the game), so you have plenty of time to figure out whether or not you’d like to wager real money on this game.

Mobile – Android, iPad and Tablets

Sweet Bonanza from Pragmatic Play is available to play on any tablet, smartphone or PC. No matter how you choose to play this online slot, you’ll still see the same great graphics and experience the same smooth gameplay.

Overall Review

This slot might look like a typical classic slot, but there’s a lot going on here. The Pay Any Way feature is truly unique and makes for very innovative gameplay and plenty of generous wins. The free spins bonus is also fantastic, offering you the chance to land impressive multipliers that boost your prizes by up to 100x.

The estimated 96.48% RTP is appealing and around average for such a themed slot. It’s a medium, or medium to high, volatility slot and players will likely see a fair bit of variation when it comes to prize sizes and frequency. On the whole, there are typically going to be some bigger but less regular wins, for example, when compared to lower variance slots.

We like the free spins for more chances to win and we’re glad to see these can be retriggered during the round. The random multiplier values added here and the tumbling reels feature up the ante and add more exciting suspense to the game. Don’t be fooled by the pretty colours and cute graphics; there’s some serious payout potential to be found here.

This 6x4 slot stands out from the crowd for a few reasons, firstly thanks to its colourful, unmistakably sweet design. The symbols pay out anywhere on the reels, so you’re not confined to active paylines. Next, there’s the ante bet that can be additionally placed to either ‘purchase’ free spins or double the chances of triggering free spins naturally. There are the juicy bonus aspects to add a little tension and dish out more multipliers and chances to win some tempting prizes.

The 0.20 starting bet is small enough to appeal to the budget players and those wanting to keep the risk low. The upper limit at 100.00 coins, or 125.00 if you include a possible side bet, will likely indulge the higher rollers who are looking to play big in the hopes of winning big. The larger multipliers here in the bonus round could see some very nice returns from maximum bets.

How does the bonus round work?

Four or more scatters anywhere on the screen will trigger the free spins bonus, but the round can also be ‘purchased’. You’ll be awarded 10 freebies to enjoy on a special set of reels, and another 5 can be retriggered if you get 3 or more scatters during the round. The multicoloured bauble is the multiplier and it’s only in action during the free spins feature. Whenever it graces the reels, it’ll take on a random multiplier value anywhere between 2x up to 100x. Once the tumbling sequence is over, all multiplier values will be added together and the full win of the squeeze is then multiplied by this final value.

There’s also the tumble feature. After every winning spin, prizes will be awarded and all winning symbols will vanish, with raining symbols falling to the bottom of the screen. New symbols will tumble down from above to fill these now vacant positions. This tumbling continues until no further winning combinations from tumbles are made, so in theory, there’s no limit to the number of tumbles possible.

How volatile is this slot?

It’s considered a medium volatility slot, for relatively steady, regular payouts but the amounts are likely to vary. You’ll probably find a mixture of very small and decent size wins at intervals throughout gameplay, compared to lower volatility slots with more regular but typically lower value prizes. The somewhat higher variance is a little riskier than lower variance slots, but we’ve found enough variation in payouts and enough regularity to make it reasonable for the budget players, especially with the low starting wager.

okay but no amazing 03/02/2020

Sweet Bonanza is good, but not as good as the Christmas version. That was has a lot more going on, with more bonus features available.
