Sweet Bonanza Xmas Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

The last remaining slot releases and special festive games are coming to a quick end. Christmas is under a month away and advent calendars are now in use to begin the exciting countdown. In the casino world, there have already been 2020 game confirmations and dates revealed by some providers. Pragmatic Play has just announced its first 2020 game and just released their festive game for 2019. The 2020 game is titled ‘Buffalo King’ and set to release 9th January 2020. The exciting festive game is titled ‘Sweet Bonanza Xmas’, which is available to play across all sites.

Sweet Bonanza Xmas is a kind of sequel for the original ‘Sweet Bonanza’ Game. The original was released on 27th June 2019 and was a hit in the casino community. The big potential on offer with a max win of 21,000x drew a lot of players in to play. Now we have the game with new festive visual and artwork. The background has changed to a snowy wonderland combined with sweets. Symbols have a snowy effect and overall the game has been changed well to match the theme.

The statistics are somewhat the same. The setup is 6 reels by 5 rows, with no pay lines as wins are formed of symbol clusters. This game is high variance due to the max win capped at 21,100 x and set RTP of 96.48% – 96.51%. You can bet from £0.20 – £125.

Sweet Bonanza Xmas Features

All symbols are the same from the original, just with changed artwork slightly. You can click to increase the bet for a double chance to land the bonus feature. You can also purchase the bonus for 100x your chosen stake. Free spins are triggered by landing 4 lollipop scatters and wilds will add up during spins then times the total win during the spin. Wilds can go up to 100x and you can retrigger the feature with 4 more scatters during the free spins. Overall, features are the same from the original and have great volatility on offer. Paired with exciting gameplay.


Overall, I think this is the perfect game for Pragmatic Play to transform into a festive game. However, I am disappointed a new game was not created for this occasion. The potential is still there and most parts of the game remain. The changed visuals are well done and suit the theme well.
