Do you have a sweet tooth? Well if you do then you'll no doubt be very interested in this fantastic and somewhat unusual slot called So Much Candy.
Part of a trilogy of slots, So Much Candy offers players the chance to experience a traditional slot, with a rather sugary twist.
So Much Candy is one of a series of three slots that were released by Microgaming under the "So Much/So Many" moniker. The others being So Much Sushi and So Many Monsters. Each of the three games has a different theme, but the game-play and rewards on offer in each are generally the same, so it is just very much a case of users picking their favourite type of game and giving it a try.
Sushi may be the healthier option in real life but the great news is that if you are a fan of the Candy variety, you won't be taking on any additional calories if you elect to play So Much Candy over So Much Sushi and that can only be a good thing.
You may not lose too many pounds however as this is one slot that could really see you rack up a big win if you are lucky.
So Much Candy is a 5x3 reel slot that has 25 fixed paylines on each spin. Coins start at 0.01 and go up to 4.00. This means you can bet from as little as 0.25 per spin, up to a maximum of 100. That's a fantastic range of bets and means that smaller stakes gamers can play the game alongside higher rollers who prefer to wager more per spin.
The look of the slot is very clean but perhaps a little basic. However there is no doubting that social media games such as Candy Crush have played an influential role in deciding the look of the slot overall.
The low symbols are the playing card variety which is a bit of a cop out in this context as there are a number of other candies that could have been used in the game to replace these somewhat repetitive symbols.
However, the flip side of that is that it does clearly delineate between which symbols are the low symbols in the game and the candy symbols, which are the high symbols. So in one respect it is a positive, but it does seem to be a little lazy not to have more candy symbols on the reels.
The high symbols on the reel include five sweets, one that looks like a piece of rock with a heart through the centre, a red and white striped sweet, a green fruit polo, a blackcurrant shaped boiled sweet and what appears to be a bright yellow lemon drop. They look as delicious as they are beautifully brought to life on the screen.
These high symbols play a significant part in what is the cornerstone of the appeal of this slot. As when you land three or more across the reels in the base game, something crazy and a little exciting happens as you trigger the Much More Candy bonus.
When this happens each of the symbols that create a winning payline will split from a single symbol into smaller symbols and up to five can take the place of that single symbol on the reel. Each of the symbols in the payline will do this to create a winning payline of up to 25 symbols.
Of course, the more winning Candy symbols you get in a payline, then the greater the payout will be. Land the piece of rock with a heart on it and you can win the base game maximum of 640 times your original payline stake.
Helping you to achieve winning paylines throughout the game is the So Much Candy Wild symbol which is the game logo. These substitute for high and low symbols in the base game to help create winning paylines.
The in game scatter is the Gumball machine and when you land three or more of these across the reels in any position then you will enter the free spins section. Here you can choose from five different options, depending on which sweet you want to choose.
The selections are a trade off in that you can take more free spins and earn up to 160,000 per line, or you can take the smaller option of 8 free spins but earn up to a maximum of 320,000 coins per line. Each of the three remaining candies offer you 10, 12 or 14 free spins with up to 280,000, 240,000 and 200,000 line wins respectively.
So Much Candy is a fantastic and enjoyable slot that will certainly bring a smile to the face of anyone who plays it.
