Gold Bonanza Slot Bonuses Explained

About The Bonanza Feature 

The Bonanza feature is unlocked when a player manages to fill all the reels with a gold background which then enables the Hold ‘n’ Spin styled feature.

To achieve the Gold Bonanza, you have to get 5 stacked reels but it’s not very common in the game as the Bonanza feature which seems a bit easier to trigger.
