So Much Candy Slots
The So Much Candy slot is certainly one that will appeal to those of you with a sweet tooth, as there is enough sugar here to give any self-respecting dentist nightmares. You might assume that they can only fit so many pieces of candy onto a 5 reel slot, but you’d be wrong as these sweets can magically multiply, each piece having the ability to turn into five pieces! This means that instead of the top pay-out being for five symbols in a row, here you’ll find that the pay table for each of the candy symbols goes all the way up to 25. Throw in a free spins round too and you’ll find yourself enjoying one of the most playable slots online.
As you might imagine at a candy based game, there is a whole lot of colour on the screen. The background is a purple colour with a candy pattern, while the burgundy backed reels are filled with a combination of candy pieces and brightly coloured playing card symbols. This might all sound a little sickly if you play for too long, but you’ll soon forget about this when the wins start coming in. The scatter is perhaps the most eye catching symbol of all, being an old fashioned penny sweet dispenser, full to the brim of different coloured gobstoppers. A quirky little tune plays alongside the game which fits in perfectly with the theme of the game.
Playing So Much Candy
Despite the transforming symbols, the game starts out as something of a standard five reel slot, this one with a fixed number of 25 win lines. You’ll select the total stake for each spin using the plus and minus buttons on the control panel and then hit ‘spin’ when you’re ready to go.
You’ll gain wins in the usual way when it comes to the playing card symbols, with a pay-out for landing at least three consecutive symbols in a row from left to right, with the largest pay-outs coming for five in a row. This all changes when it comes to the five different candy symbols. At first glance it might seem that these symbols split randomly, however you’ll soon realize that they will only do this when there are three or more in a row on a win line. However, the fact is that you’ll need at least 6 of these candy symbols to gain a win. The candy pieces can split into 2, 3, 4 or 5 pieces, so three symbols in a row could actually see a 15 in a row win if they all split to the maximum amount.
If you should land five in a row on a win line and they all split into five you’ll receive the top pay-outs at the slot. The water melon style candy with a heart running through it pays an impressive 16,000 for the maximum 25, while the red and white patterned candy is worth 14,000. The other candy pieces on the reels are the green polo style sweet, a blackcurrant candy and a golden gobstopper which pay 12,000, 10,000 and 8,000 coins for the maximum 25 symbols respectively.
The wild symbol is represented by the title of the game. This will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter – if substituting for one of the candy symbols it will count as one, whereas obviously the candy pieces might be worth more.
No slot would be complete without a scatter and it’s the penny sweet dispenser which fills this role here. Land two or more of these across any of the reels and you’ll win an instant cash prize, but three or more will also take you to the free spins feature. Upon entering the feature you’ll have a choice of five different rounds each relating to the different candy types. Whichever candy piece you choose will now replace all of the other candy pieces, with the higher paying candy offering you fewer free spins. For example, the highest paying melon style candy with the heart running through it gives you just 8 free spins, while the golden gobstopper gives you 16 free spins.
A slot which is completely focused on candy might not seem your idea of fun, but if you want to play a slot with some originality, So Much Candy would certainly fit the bill. MicroGaming have designed a slot here where the base game is very different to any other, this offering the opportunity for some much larger than usual wins – although it does have to be said that these top pay-outs will be very tough to land. If you fancy going a bit Willy Wonka, give it a spin!
