Grab Decentralized Wins in Big Benji Bonanza Slot
If the Game Stop and AMC meme stock debacle proved anything, it was that the average Joe is about done with bankers! They write themselves big paychecks and get us to bail them out when they crash the market. Well, no more!
Now, this is a story
When a slot enters that counterculture-themed space, I immediately start to compare it to Nolimit City’s Punk Rocker and Punk Toilet slots. These slots are designed to give a finger to anyone concerned about vulgarity or conformity. They do this by really pushing the limits ensuring a shocking experience for the players.
Big Benji Bonanza slot tries to follow this direction with an aesthetic that reminded me of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Unsurprisingly, since it’s a Yggdrasil slot, the graphics are top-notch. However, because they aren’t willing to take it to the extreme like Nolimit, we just never really get the same shock value that I was hoping to experience.
I will say that the caricature busts of the former presidents are really great! It would have been nice to see a stacked symbol expand the character to full-length to really blow up the slot’s personality. Alas, no such luck.
Show me the money!
The Big Benji Bonanza slot bonus features are a great example of how sometimes you can make things too complicated by adding too many mechanics.
But let’s start things off simple. The slot features Money Symbols that the busts of famous US presidents, each featuring its own win multiplier. If a printing press symbol appears on the reels in the base game or during a round of free spins, all Money Symbol multipliers that are currently on the reels will be paid out.
Now that we’ve got the easy stuff out the way let’s talk about one of the most complex free spins bonus feature I have ever come across.
If you grab three or more bonus wheel scatter symbols, you will receive ten free spins. However, if you trigger the feature with four or more free spins, your ten free spins will come with a little extra. Grabbing four scatter symbols will eliminate the low-paying 1x Money Symbol, and five will eliminate the low-paying 1x and 2x Money Symbols. Once you trigger free spins, a bonus wheel will be spun to determine the Money Symbol which will replace all other Money Symbols on the reels.
During a round of free spins, Super StaxxTM symbols will be active, which will be displayed as numbers just below an ordinary symbol. The number displays the number of symbols that symbol represents up to a maximum of ten which boosts the potential ways to win of the slot. The number of ways to win available for each spin will be displayed in the top right-hand corner of the slot.
Finally, if you get two or more bonus wheel scatter symbols during free spins, you’ll unlock between three and 20 additional spins while also boosting the Money symbol to the next value. I think that’s everything.
If you’re not willing to conform to the system, you can select to buy a round of free spins. However, you best beware. Banks will try to get theirs one way or another, and you might find yourself paying more for a round of free spins than you’ll win.
Is Big Benji Bonanza slot recession-proof?
There have been a few counterculture-themed slots appearing over the last year, and Big Benji Bonanza slot’s apocalyptic view of Wall Street definitely fits into this category. In all honesty, though, I’m not a fan.
Yggdrasil is known for great-looking slots, and on this front, Big Benji Bonanza slot does not disappoint. It looks great. The gameplay, however, lets the team down. The printing press symbol is a cool idea, but it doesn’t really fit into the theme. And then there’s the free spins bonus feature. It’s just so complicated. After an extended session and a good look at the paytable, you’ll be able to figure out what’s going on. However, if you’re a casual observer this one will be confusing to follow.
On the positive side, the slot features an impressive 12,958x max multiplier letting you chase the €129,580 max win with bets of just €10 a spin. The 95.5% RTP rating is, however, a little lower than I’d like.
