Head to any casino and it’s usually the film or TV based slots which attract the most attention, but Reel Sweet Stacks slot machine does give them a run for their money. The sound and graphics might be ‘loud’ but in a strange way it really works. This might be due to the fact that a jackpot is only ever a spin away, which adds to the excitement levels, while entering the free spins feature is an almost guaranteed money spinner – you’ll be hoping to meet the blue haired fairy at least once!
Reel Sweet Stacks is a live casino slot designed by Aristocrat, the Australia based casino design company. This slot is one of three that comes under the banner of the ‘Sugar Hits Jackpot’ range of games, where there are four different progressive jackpots to be won. The highlight of this game is the feature where wild reels enhance those winning opportunities, while also giving players further chances of landing one of the four jackpots.
How Reel Sweet Stacks Slots Work – Base Game and Wins
This game has five reels, each of the reels slightly larger than usual being four rows of symbols high. The symbols are mostly candy themed, with jelly babies, candy pieces, chocolate in a gold wrapper and colorful swirling lollipops appearing on the reels. Joining these symbols are the playing cards J, Q, K and A which act as the lowest paying symbols in the game. The game has a total of 40 win lines and the coin size can range from just 60c per spin all the way up $6.
Reel Sweet Stacks Jackpot Feature
If you like jackpot slots, Reel Sweets might just be ideal. It doesn’t feature the largest jackpot online, but with a grand progressive jackpot offering a win of $2,500 or more, this is certainly worth hitting. There are four jackpot payouts in total. The smallest of the four is the mini and this starts at just $10. Next on the jackpot ladder is the minor jackpot which pays a more impressive amount of $60 or more. Landing the major jackpot sees you take home at least $300, while the grand progressive sees the real big money heading your way.
On every spin there are a series of stacked jackpot symbols and you’ll want them to fill reels entirely. If you manage to fill 2 reels with the bonus symbol, the mini jackpot is yours, while 3 or 4 full reels will see the minor and the major jackpots payout. It’s when all 5 reels are filled with the jackpot symbol that the big money pays out, as the $2,500 or more is yours. This jackpot is a localized one, meaning that one game isn’t linked to another.
Reel Sweet Stacks Free Spins Feature
The other feature of the game is the free spins bonus round. This is activated by hitting 3 or more of the colorful, swirling lollipops anywhere on the reels. The free spins are much more valuable than the standard game in two ways:
First, during the free spins you’ll find stacked wild symbols alongside the standard candy and playing card letters. These can lead to some huge additional wins, especially if you manage to land more than one stacked reel of wilds.
The second more valuable aspect of the feature is the fact that there are more jackpot symbols on the reels during the feature than in the base game. This gives you much bigger opportunity of landing one of the four progressive jackpots and you’ll regularly see at least one of the jackpots triggered during this feature.
Reel Sweet Stacks – Design and Setup
You might think that a slot based around candy would a simple design, but once you clap eyes on it on the casino floor you’ll change your mind. This slot is housed in the Aristocrat Arc Single Frame cabinet, which features a fantastic 46-inch curved screen and surround sound too. The cabinet alone makes the game stand out, but add in the fact that it features bright primary colors, you are not going to miss this from any part of the casino.
The design of the reels is eye catching too. The backdrop shows even more candy and if you’ve ever played the ever popular ‘Candy Crush’ game, you’ll certainly feel that this has similarities. The visual highlight is the appearance of the jackpot fairy whenever you land one of the four – this lady with wings wearing an appropriately loud pink and white outfit, with some added blue which matches the color of her hair.
