Christmas Bonanza Slot – Big Time Gaming Get Festive With A Megaways™ Extravaganza
Published On: 4th October 2022
There’s nothing like a festive slot from your favourite high variance specialist game provider, Big Time Gaming, to get you in the mood for the season of good cheer. And this year, we hear, they are delivering something big!
That’s right, Santa and his elves (well, the games team at least) have been working hard at the BTG studios to turn their blockbuster ‘best ever’ Megaways™ slot, into a Xmas extravaganza.
It won’t be the first time that Bonanza has been re-worked. Last year it was given a super-boost with the addition of the Megapays™ progressive jackpots. So, what will BTG have in store for us this time – a sprinkling of snow? Angels in the mineshaft?!
We give you a sneak preview in this article to show you what you’ll find when you unwrap this seismic Christmas slot in 2022.

What Can We Expect From Christmas Bonanza Slot?
A snow-capped rocky Bonanza scene no doubt awaits any player who choose to take a spin on this slot. Whilst we can’t say for sure what BTG will bring us, there are some elements that will not be tinkered with for anyone!
What is certain is that Christmas Bonanza will remain a Megaways game – that means six reels, each containing up to seven rows, randomly changing on every spin and giving you up to 117,649 paylines per play.
And core to the gameplay is the Avalanche Wins mechanic – for any win, winning symbols are removed and new ones drop in to replace them. More wins trigger more avalanches and so on …
But the biggest present you’ll get will be to unlock the bonus round where free spins await. However, you will need to land at least FOUR scatters to do this. Normally they would spell out the word G-O-L-D. but for this edition, perhaps you should be looking for the word X-M-A-S instead! Time will tell.
What will always remain the highlight of any version of Bonanza is the free spins round where Avalanches now come with a progressive multiplier. For every avalanche, your multiplier will increase by 1x, creating cumulative wins that can snowball (in time for Christmas) to up to 26,000x!
Any new features are pure speculation on our part. But what about this … wouldn’t it be nice to have a special pick-me feature where you get to choose an instant win cash prize present? Or a new Santa’s sleigh feature that slides across the reels, doubling all multipliers in its wake?!!
Sounds a little generous perhaps, but it is the season to be giving after all!
Will It Be a Hit or a Miss?
Surely a daft question where Big Time Gaming are concerned! Christmas Bonanza will no doubt be a hit. We just hope there is enough differentiation between this version and the original to make it worth a spin!
