Christmas Big Bass Bonanza Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

I am still playing catch-up on some provider’s game announcements. In these last months in the year, a lot is announced to end 2021 and to start the new year of 2022. I just reviewed the Pragmatic Plays Christmas release for the year, titled ‘Santa’s Wonderland. Which has a max win capped at 7,500x and a progressive Free Spins feature with 5 levels. Today we are learning all about ‘Christmas Big Bass Bonanza’, set to release December 2nd across all sites.

The original game is titled ‘Big Bass Bonanza’, which was released on 3rd December 2020. With the release of ‘Big Bass Bonanza Megaways‘ to follow, which was released 18th November 2021. Now we have the festive version of the original game to end off the year. The visual aspects are inspired by the original release, but with a Christmas twist. Including snowy low paying symbols, sleighs, and bauble baits as premium symbols. I love how this game looks so similar to the original iconic release but with just some festive changes.

Christmas Big Bass Bonanza has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 10 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.71% and a max win capped at 2,100x. You can bet from £0.10 – £50.
