Take a trip inside the mine and reveal a treasure trove of winnings ...
Bonanza Slot Free Spins Bonus Round
Once launched the win multiplier in the round of free spins will start at 1 and increase with every new winning combination. Regular Scatters will not land on the reels but stacks of gold bars can appear in the carts that are above the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th reels. Three bars will get you 5 additional free spins and four bars will get you 10 additional free spins.
The Cart and Reaction Bonus Features
The Carts bonus feature is an additional row of four mining carts that are above the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th reels. The carts contain symbols and do not fall from the top but appear from the right side of the screen. The symbols in them can be included in winning combinations and the Wild symbol will only appear in the carts and not on the reels.
The Reactions feature involves cascading pictures. When you form a winning combo, all symbols in it will disappear and the symbols above them will fall down and replace them. This may create another winning combo which will also disappear from the screen. Symbols will keep replacing each other until no winning combos are created.
