3d virtual Blackjack Bonanza
Now here is a classic slot that will always be remembered. Microgaming’s 3d virtual Blackjack Bonanza certainly doesn’t offer you a silly side game to play, but what it does offer you is rock solid classic slot gameplay, with a wild feature thrown in for good measure. A non-progressive slot, many will argue that there isn’t a scatter symbol in this game, although to be fair, there is something that comes pretty close to it, in the Jack symbol.
How to play Blackjack Bonanza slots online
This blackjack themed slot machine game is a classic slot, played across 3 reels and it contains just the single payline, like most games in its genre do. Players can start wagering from the bare bones minimum of $0.25 per spin, whilst at its richest, Blackjack Bonanza will cost no more than $15 a go. Coin denominations range from $0.25 up to $5, with 3 coins per spin able to be staked by the player.
Some of the icons used in this slot are typically classic slot symbols, such as the single bar, double bar and triple bar icons. Others are a sort of fusion between the blackjack and classic slots genres, such as seven with a black tie and shirt, whilst the main symbol is the Jack himself (from the playing card), and this is a very special symbol indeed.
Blackjack Bonanza Slot Bonus Features
That very special Jack icon is more than just a playing card here; it’s a wild card, or a wild symbol, to be strictly correct. The wild symbol will substitute itself with any other icon you need to complete a payline. The wild Jack will also award the player a big jackpot, and acts as a kind of scattered win symbol too. If it appears anywhere on the reels 3 times, a payout is awarded, so you don’t even need it on your payline. If that’s not the definition of a scatter symbol, I don’t know what is. Yet despite this, many people still don’t agree!
Blackjack Bonanza slot Payouts
Any single or double Jack icons on the reels will reward players with petite payouts, based on how many coins they have wagered. Gamers who have wagered 1 or 2 coins per spin, obviously won’t win as much as those who wager 3 coins. Whilst any 3 bars will payout, 3 singles, 3 doubles and 3 triple bars will reward better payouts of 30, 60 and 150 coins, respectively, if you have 3 coins wagered. Any less than that and the wins will be smaller. Bag three 7s and a player will win either 100, 200 or 300 coins, based on the amount of coins wagered, and line up 3 Jacks in any position on the reels (but not on the payline) and you will win either 200, 500 or 1,000 coins.
The Blackjack Bonanza
In order to claim the big jackpot though, which is worth $20,000 in real money, you will need to wager 3 coins per spin, and acquire 3 Jacks all on the single payline. Doing this will see you win the top jackpot of 4,000 coins. Smaller jackpots of 2,500 and 1,000 coins are available for players who get 3 Jacks on the payline with 2 or 1 coins wagered, respectively.

Other notes on Blackjack Bonanza
Would this game have been any better if it had incorporated a little side bet blackjack game into its design, as a bonus round perhaps? Actually, I think it might have done. What is unique about this game is its inherent simplicity. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, and is just as easy as other classic slots, albeit with the added perk of a wild symbol.
If a bonus had been added, it would probably have become a video slot, and that wouldn’t really have sufficed. There are a number of Microgaming 3 reel slots that disappoint by not representing their theme in their icons, but in Blackjack Bonanza you can see the theme all throughout the game.
This is a wonderfully basic slot, with a massive jackpot and small wagers, and it is a joy to play.
