- December 2, 2019 By Oliver Young -

Pragmatic Play has released the original Sweet Bonanza slot earlier this year. Following its success in online casinos, the leading software developer has created a festive version of it, which offers an even sweeter payout than the original, called Sweet Bonanza Xmas.

Sweet Bonanza Xmas arrives just in time to get you into the holiday spirit, as December marks the beginning of the Christmas preparations and celebrations.

Sweet Bonanza Xmas by Pragmatic Play is here, to mark the beginning of the Christmas euphoria.

May the Christmas Euphoria Begin!

Aladdin and the Sorcerer was released a few weeks ago, and yet, Pragmatic Play releases a brand new slot in such a short time. Sweet Bonanza Xmas is here to take you to the winter wonderland where Christmas candies can provide you with the sweetest rewards.

Those of you who are mad for Christmas will absolutely love Sweet Bonanza. It is a medium to high volatile slot that offers an ultra-high payout potential, just in time for Christmas shopping and preparations. The minute you load the game, you’ll hear that jingly, Christmassy tune, welcoming you to the snow-covered reels full of candies.

You know how dedicated Pragmatic Play is in providing you with the most amazingly-looking Christmas-themed slots, such as Santa. Therefore, you’ll see the most magical wintry background filled with snowmen, decorations and snow, a lot of snow. You’ll see the lowest-paying grapes, bananas, plums and watermelons on the reels, as well as the higher-paying red, purple, green and blue candies.

Considering you won’t see reels spinning but rather the whole grid falling into place at the beginning of each spin, you have no paylines in the slot. Instead, you’ll need to make winning combos with at least 8 symbols. The maximum is 12, and the highest-paying red heart candy will deliver 50x the stake for this combo. You have the Ante Bet offered here, as well, which increases the RTP from 96.48% to 96.51%, but also gives you more Scatters when active for a 25% bigger bet.

In terms of gameplay, the Tumble feature is central in the slot. Winning symbols are removed from the screen, allowing new ones to fall and provide you with a cluster of consecutive wins in one spin.

You need at least 4 swirly lollipop Scatter symbols to get 10 Free Spins. Land 3 more, and you’ll get 5 extra Free Spins. The Multiplier Symbol starts appearing in the Free Spins, with a starting value of 2x, which can go as high as 100x. The Multiplier Symbols stay on the reels during the tumble, and at the end are added up to be applied to the total win.

It is evident that the slot pays most during the Free Spins, so you better activate the Ante Bet that doubles your chances of landing Lollipop Scatters. If you’re impatient for the bonus to be triggered, you can always buy direct access to it, by clicking on the button beneath the reels on the left and paying 100x the bet.

Pragmatic Play’s Statement

Pragmatic Play’s Chief Commercial Officer Melissa Summerfield said that their Christmas-themed slots have always been really popular, and Sweet Bonanza Xmas was a sequel of a successful slot with an incredible take on the holiday elements.

With its high volatility and the chance to land Multipliers of up to 100x, they were certain the slot was going to be a huge hit with players and operators alike.
