Big Benji Bonanza Slot (Yggdrasil)

Big Benji Bonanza Slot (Yggdrasil)The first impression that we get from Big Benji Bonanza is a money-inspired theme, and this is written everywhere on its graphics.

You can see several dollar bills on its graphics, and below is the full review of the slot, that was created through a partnership between Yggdrasil and Jelly Gaming:

Game Set-Up

Big Benji Bonanza comes with 243 ways to win that are held on its 5x3 reels. Inside, there are a couple of features that include scatters, the free spins, Super Staxx, wilds, Money symbols, and the Cash Machine.

Betting and Prizes

To play Big Benji Bonanza for real money, you only need $0.20 per spin that you make. The MAX amount that the slot will allow per spin is $20.

While using the highest stake on Big Benji Bonanza, you could end up hitting wins of up to $259,140 from a single spin. The slot pays at the rate of 12,957xs the stake.

These payouts are quite fair considering that the slot is medium to high in volatility. On the other hand, the 95.50% RTP is not all that impressive for a modern slot, since a majority offer at least 96%.

Big Benji Bonanza Slot Features

The slot is loaded with some powerful features that will keep the thrill going. One such feature is Super Staxx, which will deliver the super-stacked symbols.

The feature will reward you with up to 10 same type symbols that will help to boost the reel’s number of ways to win. The highest that you can simultaneously get on a reel is 2 Super Staxx.

A Big Benji Wild will come in and assist as a replacement symbol for the regular icons.

Big Benji Bonanza has a Collection mechanic that involves two types of symbols. One is the bills with the presidents, and it will help to form wins within an active line. The other one is the collect symbol (Cash Machine) that appears on the 5th reel and will reward you with a prize.

You will need some help from 3+ scatters to trigger up to 10 free spins. With more scatters appearing, you can be able to eliminate the lowest value president and remain with only the higher value selections on the bonus wheel. The Bonus Wheel will go into a spin to pick a Special Money symbol that will be used.

Receiving extra sets of 2-5 scatters triggers an additional 3 to 20 free spins. Additionally, they also upgrade the money symbol, and now you have a higher value president.

Theme & Design

This money-themed slot’s action takes place on Wall Street, and we can see that in the background image. There is a mix of Royal symbols (10 to A), alongside others like the Golden Bell, Diamond, Cherries, and the several money symbols displaying the presidents.

Conclusion

Big Benji Bonanza is an average looking slot game, and it offers an interesting mechanic, just as we see from other Yggdrasil titles.

The approach is a bit different though, and therefore we are getting something unique from the usual Yggdrasil games.

However, what I don’t find impressive is the slot’s below-average RTP which may not be very attractive to real money gamers.
