- A new version of Bonanza with jackpots
- Potential for massive wins but with a lower RTP
- Won’t be for everyone but still a great option
Bonanza Megapays slot from Big Time Gaming may sound like it has a new mechanic to replace the popular Megaways feature, but don’t worry because that’s still part of this game. Megapays is actually a jackpot feature and an impressive one at that with life-changing rewards available to you. All this while maintaining the classic gameplay of Bonanza.
To get things going, just spin the reels to try and get a winning combination using the following base symbols, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 or 10
- Jack or Queen
- King or Ace
- Green Gem
- Blue Gem
- Red Gem
There is a wild symbol too, substituting for all of the above symbols in a winning combination.

Bonanza Megapays Slot Bonuses and Features
Reactions. As in the other game, here you have reactions where winning symbols explode to allow new ones to fall in from above within the same spin, potentially setting off a long chain of wins.
Free Spins Bonus. The main attraction in the original, you need 4 scatters to trigger this giving you 12 free spins, with each additional scatter giving you 5 extra free spins. This game has an unlimited win multiplier, starting at 1x and increasing by 1x for each additional win. You can also win more free spins by landing 3 scatters for 5 free spins, or 4 for 10.
MegaPays. This is the feature that sets this game apart, as you can tell from the title. Essentially, it’s a jackpot feature that can trigger on any spin. A symbol from 9 to Ace will be chosen as the Megapays symbol, and you need at least 4 of these to win a jackpot. There are 4 jackpots, given as follows:
- 4-7 symbols awards the Mini Jackpot.
- 8-11 symbols awards the Midi Jackpot.
- 12-14 symbols awards the Major Jackpot.
- 15 or more symbols awards the Mega Jackpot.
Bonanza Megapays slot from Big Time Gaming is a new variation of a popular classic that adds a new jackpot feature which can provide up to a staggering 3 million times your stake reward. Not only is this huge, but unlike many other jackpot games it doesn’t matter what your stake is, the chance of getting a jackpot is the same. Of course, there is a price to pay and that’s the RTP which is just 86.96%, far lower than the 94.4% of the original. This is to be expected though and shouldn’t put off jackpot seekers. I think it’s a great option for some, though it’s not supposed to be a replacement for the original, merely an alternative for those looking for huge jackpot wins.
