- An interesting slot that offers a bonus buy option
- The main bonus is pretty good and can pay out big
- This slot can get expensive and isn’t for everyone
Sweet Bonanza slot from Pragmatic Play offers some similar features to this likes of some Blueprint Megaways slots in that it has cascading, or should I say tumbling symbols, a fairly high volatility and varying multipliers in the free spins bonus. That said, there are some key differences which may make you lean towards this new slot instead.
One of those reasons could be the design which here is very fun and if you’re not careful, will make you hungry. It’s not entirely original, but it does look nice and colourful all the same. There are 6 reels here with 5 rows, and you just need to get a win from left to right using the base symbols, a win which can be up to a staggering 21,100x your stake. These base symbols are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Banana (lowest value)
- Blue Rectangle
- Green Pentagon
- Purple Square
- Red Heart (highest value)
These are just the base symbols, but there’s also a scatter symbol, shown as a lollipop, which pays on any position and can be even more valuable than the heart symbol. It’s used to trigger the free spins bonus.

Sweet Bonanza Slot Bonuses and Features
Ante Bet. As a player, you can choose the set certain bet levels which affect how the game plays, potentially improving it but at a cost, of course. A 20x stake multiplier will give you the ability to buy the free spins bonus at a cost of 100x your stake. A 25x multiplier will double your chances of winning the free spins bonus naturally with more scatter symbols on the reels. This will also disable the ability to buy the free spins bonus.
Tumble Feature. This is just another name for cascading symbols, or the avalanche feature. All symbols that form part of a win will be removed from the reels so that new ones can fall in. If another win is generated, the win is applied during the same spin and the same happens again.
Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this naturally, you need 4 or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. You’ll be given 10 free spins, but you can win a further 5 during the bonus by landing another 3 or more scatter symbols. During the bonus, the multiplier symbol, shown as a colourful bauble, will remain on the screen and can apply a multiplier of 2x to 100x. At the end of a tumbling sequence, the values of all of valuable symbols are added together and the total win is multiplied by that value.
Sweet Bonanza slot from Pragmatic Play is the first slot we’ve seen in a little while that gives players the option to buy a bonus, although it does so in an unusual way. Have bet levels to choose from is a nice idea, although these ones don’t sound as appealing as some that we’ve seen from say, SG Gaming. The slot focuses almost entirely on the free spins bonus where rather than increasing your multiplier with every tumble/cascade/reaction, you instead get a random multiplier applied to your winnings. This can be an impressive 100x your stake which is far more than you’ll likely get on some other slots like those from Blueprint, but most of the time the multipliers will stay relatively low. All that said, I think they’ve done a decent job here and it’s a nice way to change things up. If you like buying bonuses, or you’re just looking for a fairly high variance slot that’s a bit different to the rest, you should probably check this one out.
