An abundance of candy all around you but with no health-related hazards or the need for horror-induced visits to the dentist – could this be a dream? Quite the contrary! It is all very reel with our top picks of personal favourite, most popular and delicious candy-themed slots, with the sweetest aftertaste of Free Spins and bonus features!
If only saying the name makes your mouth water, just wait until you spin the reels and actually see all the forbidden pleasures revealed before your eyes. A new and improved version of Sugar Pop, Sugar Pop 2 Double Dipped is an explosion of flavour and colours, and a true audio-visual treat.
The slot features cascading reels and has 7×7 Cluster-pays structure with max payout of 28,305 coins, which can buy you a lot of candy. The special features are just as rich in flavour as the slot symbols themselves, especially the Candy Bomb, triggered by the formation of at least 5 clusters. Once the bomb goes off, it destroys the symbols in its proximity and unlocks additional prizes, which are equivalent to the number of clusters forming the bomb and to the force of explosion. During the game, a player can randomly activate the Surprise Egg, which breaks open to reveal a Special Candy; depending on the game level, this symbol will have the ability to shuffle other icons, explode and destroy other symbols, travel across the reels and eliminate symbols that cross its path, etc.
Is there such a thing as too much candy? Not likely and So Much Candy slot is set out to prove it since you will not be able to get enough of this 5-reel, 25 paylines video slot with the potential payout of 320,000 coins.
What is unique about this game is that the high value symbols have the ability to split and produce additional winning combos. The combination of 3 to 5 Scatter Gum-ball Machine icons will activate re- triggerable Free Spins feature, during which the player can select one of the high value symbols to act as the Wild. The selected symbol will substitute all other higher value icons and award more Free Spins.
Nature’s candy vs hard candy delights – which one will win? There are no losers in NetEnt’s Reel Rush video slot, featuring 5 reels, 5 rows and an inconsistent number of paylines. This means that the win-ways will change depending on the number of activated Re-spins, adding more paylines after every single Re-spin.
Although NetEnt does not limit its interpretation of the theme to just the candy inspired symbols, there is still enough sugar to place Reel Rush under this category. Lower value icons are the Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Purple hard candies, making this slot a playful version of the classic slot machine characters – Cherries, Oranges, Lemons etc.
Any winning combination in the base game can trigger a Re-spin, until up to 5 Re-spins are unlocked. Each of the Re-spins is played with a different set of paylines – the first one provides the player with 135 win ways, the second comes with 405 paylines, third Re-spin offers 675 ways to win, while the fourth and the fifth Re-spins have 1125 and 1875 lines, respectively.
It does not really get sweeter that this! Carrying a slight resemblance to the Candy Crush saga, Sweet Party is a simple yet extremely addictive 5-reel and 5 rows slot with €1,000,000 Jackpot. The symbols become payable in the combination of five – if you manage to land at least five of the same candies in the adjacent but not diagonal position, you will multiply your bet by a specific value attached to the relevant icon.
The Red Candy is the most appetizing one of all, as this is the symbol that awards a certain percentage of the overall Jackpot. Depending on the level of your bet, you can win a minimum of 10% from the pot on the €1 bet or the entire amount on a €10 stake.
Quickspin is known for their exceptional slot designs and astounding visual features. It is only natural that their approach to the theme will up the game to an entirely different level and raise the bar for other software developers who decide to exploit the ever so sweet candy theme.
The structure of Sugar Trail is pretty conventional – there are 5 reels, 3 rows, 40 fixed paylines and three groups of symbols: Wilds, Medium Wins and Low Wins icons.
Bonus features are activated by the adorable Gummy Bear icons and Sugar Trail slot is packed with Free Spins, Re-spins and Cash Bonuses, each triggered by the different colour Gummy Bear. The Purple King will land on the reels 1 – 3, triggering Free Spins sessions for the combination of 3. The bonus mode also introduces the Flying Wild Symbol that moves across the reels and a Free Spin icon that awards additional spins.
Reels 2, 3 and 4 are the landing spots of the Green Queen Gummy Bear icon, three of which will activate the Re-spin Bonus. During this feature, Locked Wild symbols will hold their positions throughout the entire Re-spin session. The Blue Prince Gummy Bear initiates the Sugar Cash Bonus, with both the cash awards and multipliers.
If you have a sweet tooth, Candy Bar slot will give you just what you need – massive sugar and chocolate rush, sprinkled with three Jackpots. Compared to some other slots from this list, this 4×4, 50 paylines video slot is fairly simple in terms of special features and visual effects, but it certainly makes up for its (perhaps intentional) campish appearance by introducing the Snack, King Size and Giant Size Jackpots.
Players with more sophisticated taste may not enjoy the sugary simplicity of Candy Bar, but with the progressive main prize system, Snack Jackpot that can be won fairly easily and the prospect of winning King and Giant payout on any given spin, what’s not to like?
