ALL ABOUT PUMPKIN BONANZA SLOT
Come Halloween, Christmas and Easter all the big-name slot suppliers churn out one or two themed slots each. They are not always pretty, but if you fancy something a little bit different and you like to get in the party spirit, they can be fun.
Playtech’s Halloween release for 2018 is Pumpkin Bonanza. Unlike another ‘Bonanza’ slot we could mention this one is unlikely to be topping any all-time great charts any time in the near future, but it does have a rather natty feature that turns wining symbols into wilds and sets off a re-spin.
As far as win potential goes, it’s a little low at 2,000x and the medium high variance means it will be tough to get near that.
Pumpkin Bonanza Game Set Up
This is a simple 5 reel and 4 row slot game with 10 fixed paylines. One of the key features of Pumpkin Bonanza is that it is a pays-both-ways slot game. That means the paylines work from left to right and right to left. Built into the game is a feature which is triggered only when you hit a winline that works both ways. More on that in a minute.
As you would expect the theme is spooky, with the reel set sitting on top of a graveyard-background.
You can play this one from 10p to £500 per spin. The variance is medium-high.
Pumpkin Bonanza Game Symbols
The game symbols here are the card suits, spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts. There are also three premium symbols, the scarecrow, the witch and the witch on a broomstick. The latter is the highest paying at 50x for five on a payline.
There is also a wild symbol, the scary-looking Pumpkin. This only appears on the middle three reels and is key to the main game feature.
Pumpkin Bonanza Slot Features
Pumpkin Wild– In this game if there is a potential win from left to right and right to left then all winning symbols on the middle reel turn into Pumpkin Wilds, increasing the win potential of the spin.
Bonanza Spin Feature– A winning combination from left to right and right to left sets off this feature when it includes a wild. A re-spin is set off in which all the winning symbols on the middle three reels turn wild. And during re-spins ALL reels contain wilds, creating the chance of a full screen of wilds.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
So, nothing too sophisticated or complicated from Playtech to go with your apple bobbing this Halloween. There is a potential for a 2,000x top payout here, and only one feature, but it’s a fun little slot nonetheless, so worth a spin or two. If you like eerie slots like this one we also recommend Microgaming’s recent release, Wicked Tales – Dark Red.
