Tropical Bonanza slot REVIEW
Tropical Bonanza ReviewIf you’re going to make a copycat effort, why not be blatantly obvious about it. That seems to be the philosophy behind this release, and we prefer the upfront honesty to a more sneaky approach. Tropical Bonanza is clearly inspired by the popular Sweet Bonanza, but it comes with a very different tropical island and fruit cocktail theme.
Some extra features have been added to the mix as well, not least the 2 random modifiers you get in the base game. One of these provides multiplier symbols also in the base game, which is a welcome addition, and up to x100 multipliers can combine to boost winnings in the bonus round. Tropical Bonanza might not be super original, but it’s still an entertaining escape to a paradise setting with decent stats to boot.

Tropical Bonanza Slot Features
You can activate the Extra Juice Side Bet between base game spins, and it doubles your bonus round chances (and increases the RTP slightly, to 96.05 %). This will cost you 25 % extra per spin however, so it’s something to consider.
The fruity symbols pay as long as you land 8 to 12+ anywhere in view, and a maxed out 12+ win awards between 2 and 50 x your stake. There are no wilds in this game, but you get Tumble Wins that award indefinite extra wins as long as you keep winning.
The base game comes with 2 randomly triggered Happy Hour Modifiers, and these are as follows:
Extra Shots - adds 1 to 6 shots to the cocktail glass meter (a full glass triggers the bonus round).
Fruit Multiplier - adds a random multiplier of x2 to x20 onto the grid, and it will boost the total win of the current spin.
A single shot is added to the Cocktail Glass Meter per Tumble Win, and you need 6 shots in a single tumble sequence to trigger the Bonus Round with 8 free spins. You can also trigger the feature by landing 3 pineapple scatters anywhere in view. The bonus round has an organic hit rate of 1 in 162 spins (or 1 in 91 spins with the extra juice side bet active).
You get multiplier symbols that boost the current win during the bonus round, and they can go as high as x100. The multiplier values are added together if more than one appear, and each scatter awards +1 extra spin. Non-UK players, and anyone eligible, may purchase the bonus round for 75x the stake (increases RTP to 96.4 %).

Tropical Bonanza Slot - Free Spins
It’s obvious from the title that iSoftBet is far from shy when it comes to revealing their obvious source of inspiration, and we’ve seen many Sweet Bonanza copycats before. To their credit, the tropical island and fruit cocktail theme is well done, and you get a good view of the idyllic setting via the transparent reels. It’s a nice escape that feels like a small holiday, and you get a very idyllic sunset in the bonus round.
The random modifiers provide some excitement in the base game, and having multiplier symbols also in the base game is a nice touch. Perhaps it would’ve been better if you got modifiers from filling the cocktail meter, as 2 ways of triggering the bonus round is hardly needed. The bonus round is very similar to sweet bonanza, with up to x100 multiplier symbols, but the 5,887x potential seems more realistic and down-to-earth.
