What’s a video slot without a good theme? For some reason, video slot enthusiasts have always had a hankering for candy-themed games and there is no better name than Microgaming to satisfy the sweet-toothed slots lover. Just some of the titles include Candy Dreams, Fruit vs. Candy, So Much Candy, and Sweet Harvest.
Since it is virtually impossible for us to narrow down the best Microgaming video slots with a sugary theme, we have decided to share almost all of them with you, with the necessary details for you to decide which of them best suits your tastes. As far as game play goes, all Microgaming video slots are exceptional, the variety of sweet-themed slots on offer simply add a variety of flavour to satisfy any palate.
Here is a look at the Microgaming menu of dessert-style video slots available online:
One of the things that make Microgaming’s Candy Dreams slot unique is its hexagonal layout – three rows on the first and last reels, four rows on the second and fourth reels, and five rows on the central reel.
These reels are set against a rich purple sky, filled with soft pink candyfloss clouds that rain pink and white vermicelli. The colour scheme is a pastille palette with symbols that include a variety of hardboiled sweets, the Candy Dreams logo, and a giant swirled lollipop.
The lollipop (also called the supernova candy) is the game’s bonus symbol, which triggers 12 free spins that feature special gift box wild symbols. In the main game, the Candy Dreams game logo is the wild symbol, whilst the Candy Planet symbols serves as the scatter. This scatter symbol triggers a bonus game, which is played on a second screen when it is triggered.
A major plus point for the Candy Dreams video slot is that it offers players an incredible 720 ways to win.
Fruit vs. Candy
In the Fruit vs. Candy online video slot, Microgaming presents players with 243 ways to win, with the unique option to play in fruit or candy. This option is triggered in the base game, in which the goodie bag symbol awards just one bonus, whereas the sugar rush symbol awards a bonus for every one of the high-paying symbols landed in the spin. Where the two modes differ is in terms of free spins. Free spins in fruit mode, the low-value symbols are progressively removed from the reels once the bonus has been awarded. The free spins then continue until there are no more low-paying symbols on the reels. In candy mode, meanwhile, the free-spins reel can be changed into a stacked reel of identical symbols and then the free spins go on until all the reels have been sweetened.
So Much Candy
Microgaming’s So Much Candy video slot is also set against a purple backdrop, but this one features an array of sweet treats instead of candyfloss clouds. The layout of this slot includes the usual five reels and three rows, but it can deliver payline wins on as many as 25 symbols. Like Fruit vs. Candy, So Much Candy features all sorts of hardboiled and other sweets including, peppermints, fruit gums, and lemon drops, among others.
All symbols have the potential to split into more symbols, thus replicating themselves up to five times to greatly increase players’ chances of winning. As mentioned, there are 25 different symbol combinations that pay out for six symbols at a time. So Much Candy has a scatter symbol, which takes the form of a ball of chewing gum and triggers several free-spins options that differ in terms of variance and number. The higher the variance (i.e. the risk), the higher the number of free spins. Options start at eight free spins at the lowest possible variance or 16 free spins at the highest possible variance.
This 20-line Microgaming video slot actually combines two themes – candy and farming. The slot is set against the backdrop of a rich green illustrated landscape and not as sugary as the other slots mentioned here. Its sweetness is all natural, with various fruit symbols to when your appetite. Sweet Harvest features five reels with stacked wilds all over the place, which greatly increases your likelihood of winning and increases those wins when you do.
The Sweet Harvest video slot is a 2000-coin game with a minimum wager of 0.01 credits and a max bet of 0.25 credits. Players may wager up to 100 coins per spin, depending on their bankrolls and how lucky they are feeling. If you bet the maximum, you stand a chance of winning up to 10 000 coins. If activate all of the game’s paylines, you can increase that win to 200 000 coins in the base game. This goes up to 400 000 coins during free spins games.
To make winning easier, Sweet Harvest boasts a stacked wild symbol and a scatter symbol (the barn), which triggers 12 free spins when three or more are landed. Extra stacked wild symbols are included in these free spins. The game also has a nifty re-spin feature.
