Pragmatic Play Releases It’s Festive ‘Sweet Bonanza Xmas’ Game

Pragmatic Play, the leading multi-product content provider, has released its latest title, Sweet Bonanza Xmas, in a nod to one of its most popular games.

With its festive soundtrack and winter wonderland setting complete with plenty of white stuff, assorted decorations and Frosty-like snowmen on either side of the 6-column, 5-row grid, the highly volatile online slot promises to get players in the holiday spirit.

There are a total of nine base game icons, including five low side fruits, consisting of bananas, grapes watermelons, plums, and four higher-value candies, green, blue, purple, and red.

There are no spinning reels or paylines here, but at every spin the whole grid falls into place. Whether or not the payout of winners is determined by the number of symbols on the grid and paid on the screen. Players will need to get at least eight base games symbols while the red heart candy pays out 50x the stake for 12 or more.

The return to player (RTP) rating of the game falls between a respectable 96.48 percent and 96.51 percent depending on whether or not the Ante Bet feature is engaged. The above feature allows players to choose to pay 25% more per spin to double their chances of landing scatters.

The action here is based around the Tumble function, where each of the winning symbols is removed from the grid to allow more symbols to fall and potentially lead to a back-to-back winning cluster all from one turn. The fun new video slot also features extra spins that require at least four of the delicious lollipop scatters to trigger. The bonus round starts with 10 extra spins, but in addition to the remaining total, three or more scatters add five.

During extra spins, the multiplier symbol comes into play, where it stays on the screen while winning tumbling. The remaining multipliers are measured at the end of the feature and added to the winning total. Random multiplier values start at x2 and in extra spins can potentially go up to 100x. Likewise, when 3, 4, or 5, the scatter also pays out 3x, 5x, and 100x.

Chief Commercial Officer for Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield, commented on the launch of the sweet treat: “Our Christmas games have always been incredibly popular, and Sweet Bonanza Xmas is an exciting take on one of our most sought-after games.”

According to the official press release: “With its high volatility, and the chance of multipliers of up to 100x, we’re sure this slot is going to be a huge hit with operators and players alike.”

Similar to the original candy-themed title, the Malta and Curaçao-licensed developer’s Sweet Bonanza, the latest addition to its award-winning games portfolio differs in that the new release has a winning potential of more than 21,100 times the stake. To be sure, achieving this massive win would yield some jolly X-mas!

Sweet Bonanza X-mas is the latest launch by Pragmatic Play and joins its existing collection of slot games, such as Mustang Gold, Hercules and Pegasus, as well as Wolf Gold, one of its all-time favourites.

The release comes on the heels of the provider’s recent agreement with online casino software and platform provider SoftSwiss, which will see the developer’s Live Casino product go live with the Maltese innovator.

The entire portfolio of live casino games, scratchcards, bingo, and video slots from Pragmatic is available through a single API to all its operator partners.
