Next on the list of the most popular games are BGaming, Evolution and Quickspin. These guys don’t need any further introduction as they have been around the industry for a long time.
Does this mean they have the best games? What games appeal the most to their players?
Continue reading and you will find out.
An explosion of colors
1) BGaming – Bonanza Billion
When it comes to BGaming, it’s hard to stay away from Elvis Frog. This guy keeps rocking and his little amphibian legs do their best to put the real Elvis to shame.
However, BGaming has told me that so far during 2022, based on the number of bets alone, the most popular game this year is Bonanza Billion. Based on these stats, I will take a close look at it, so let’s see what I find out.
Good vibes all around
Fun and Colorful
I have to say that at first glance, the game is very reminiscent of other games, for example Fruit Party. Then again, there are so many games out there that basically are replicas. Come to think of it, the game it mostly reminds me of is Sweet Bonanza, which is of course the original version of this game. Duh!
Compared to the dark and gray Tombstone R.I.P. that I wrote about yesterday, Bonanza Billion is colorful and a lot lighter to play. Fun vibes and cascading reels will grasp your attention right off the bat and with both Buy Bonus and Chance button visible on the left, this should be a good time.
Bonanza Billion has a 96.00% RTP and high volatility.
Activate the Chance button on the left
Flip the Switch to Win
I played about 15 spins with not much happening in terms of scatters, which is nothing. However, this didn’t stop me from feeling a bit anxious so I decided to flip the Chance switch to double my chances of triggering the bonus round.
Free Spins on the first spin
First Spin Miracles
Boom – First spin and 10 Free Spins were mine! The fact that it only took one spin for me to see the effect of it is crazy but it sure made me smile.
The reason I was awarded with 10 spins is because I only landed 4 scatters. If you can land more, do so, because 5 scatters will give you 20 spins while 6 scatters will send as many as 30 Free Spins your way.
You can win but maybe not billions
Bonanza Billion Bonus Round with Multipliers
So, once the bonus round gets going, you want to keep an eye out for the rainbow colored multiplier. Whenever this guy hits, it will give you a random multiplier from 2x to 100x.
I see these as small bonuses that can take any win to a whole new level. Fingers crossed!
Mega Win, baby
When It Rains It Pours
That’s a big exaggeration but I did manage to scoop up a Mega Win during Free Spins at 51x my bet.
My total win during the bonus round
It’s All About the Journey
With the 51x Mega Win in the bag, you would think the whole bonus round was full of big wins. The fact is that the total win came out to 75x my original bet.
At some level, I feel like a win just to get to the bonus round when playing slots and I will gladly pocket a total win like this one.
You can take a shortcut to the bonus round
Buy Bonus Feature
As mentioned earlier, there is a Buy Bonus feature sitting right about the Chance button. This will give you the option of paying a small fee and getting into the bonus round through the backdoor.
Keep in mind, if you have the Chance button activated, the Buy Bonus will not be available, so make sure you deactivate it first.
It’s the Bonanza Billion Indeed
I really recommend taking Bonanza Billion for a spin because I liked it a lot. The colors and cheery tunes will immediately get your endorphins flowing and you will be smiling even bigger after nailing down a couple of big wins.
There’s no doubt it’s a great game and I can understand why it’s so popular. Swing by CasinoInter, mBit Casino and FortuneJack to try the game.
Lightning Strikes numbers
2) Evolution – Lightning Roulette
The undisputed King of live casino is of course Evolution and the two top games are Crazy Time and Lightning Roulette. I’m not really a Roulette but if I go to a land based casino, I might drop a few minor bets on Red or Black.
I’ve heard a lot about Lightning Roulette (97.30% RTP) so without necessarily knowing what is so special about it, I got curious and decided to see what the fuss is all about.
This time 3 number were struck by lightning
Lightning Will Strike
Before each new spin, after all bets have been placed, lightning will strike 1-5 numbers. These numbers are now special and will pay anywhere between 50x to 500x your bet.
Each spin will have anywhere from 1-5 numbers that will pay a lot more
If you manage to hit a number that is not considered “struck by lightning”, they will pay 30x. Considering you don’t know what the special numbers are before placing your bet, you’ll have to get lucky. Should the ball then land on that number, boom – up to a 500x win!
Before the spins, they will show you the board with hot or cold numbers
Hot or Cold Numbers
As a service to the players, in between the spins, you will see a board with all the numbers behind the dealer. This board is there to show you hot and cold numbers in case this will affect your betting strategy.
I don’t pay too much attention to it but maybe other players do.
I like how the clock speeds up the game
It’s the Final Countdown
There is a countdown between the spins. The clock will start at 20 seconds and this is one of my favorite things with this game.
In my experience, a lot of the live casino games are way too slow for my taste and it can take ages between actual plays. I can get really irritated but there’s nothing you can do about it.
In Lightning Roulette, I felt that the game play flows very well and the whole thing is just smooth, a lot of it thanks to the speedy play.
It’s not Michael Jordan’s jersey hanging from the ceiling, it’s my winning number 23.
My Only Win
Out of 10 spins that I actually took part in, I managed to win once on number 23. Unfortunately I missed getting the screenshot of it.
My New Favorite Roulette
I think I’ve found my new favorite Roulette game. The speed, special numbers with bigger payouts and overall excitement all played a part in making me a fan.
Roulette is always Roulette but I feel like this version adds a bit of spice to the whole experience and I prefer it. This is the type of game you can get stuck for hours and still have a good time. Nice one, Evolution!
You can find the game at most casinos that have live casino games but definitely at BitStarz, KingBilly and 7Bit Casino.
3) Quickspin – Sakura Fortune
Relaxing vibes and beautiful settings are normally what we see in Asian inspired slots. Sakura is actually Japanese for Cherry Blossom so it’s no wonder the flowery trees dominate the backdrop.
With 5 reels, a 96.61% RTP and high volatility, the table is set for a lovely picnic in the middle of a Japanese garden.
You want the stacked wilds
All Focus Is on the Princess
Basically the Princess Wild is the big focus here and considering she can stretch out and cover the entire reel, I get it. She will only show up on the middle 3 reels.
Let’s Rack up the Respins
Just to keep a lid on your expectations, it’s not always that the Princess shows up fully stacked. If two fully stacked wilds do appear, it will trigger the Sakura Fortune Respin feature.
Two wilds will get you two respins and if you can get more wilds, you will then get extra respins.
I managed to trigger two respins once but it didn’t result in anything unfortunately.
This was basically as close as I got to landing 3 bonus symbols and get to the bonus round
Sakura Free Spins
It wasn’t until I read the game info that I fully believed there are Free Spins available. I wasn’t even close to get any but if you do, know that the Princess Wild will always cover the entire reel if they show up and will give you additional Free Spins.
Also, if you have wilds showing, they will stick around for the entire bonus round.
What Makes the Game So Appealing?
Sometimes it’s difficult to understand why certain things are popular. Whether it’s clothes, music, people or in this case a slot. I just don’t see there’s anything special about this game that makes it stick out from the rest of them.
Sure, I didn’t make it to a bonus round, but there have to be better Quickspin games available. Spinions Beach Party, The Wild Chase and Big Bad Wolf are some of the Quickspin games I’ve enjoyed over the years.
Considering I tend not to play these types of games in general, maybe it’s just the case of me not being part of the right demographic. Players apparently love Sakura Fortune so all there is to say is congratulations, Quickspin.
Play the game at Winz.io, Fightclub Casino and Stake.com.
Also, a sequel was just released a couple of months ago so it will be interesting to see how Sakura Fortuna II performs.
This was an interesting trio of games and they are all so different. Lightning Roulette and Bonanza Billion were my two favorites while Sakura Fortune didn’t really reach my expectations.
Give these games a shot and see what you think. Do you agree with my experiences or am I completely wrong?
Regardless of what you may think of the games and my view on them, I wish you the best of luck!
