So Much Candy Video Slots Game
So Much Candy was developed and produced by the well-respected Microgaming studio, based in the Isle of Man, at the same time as So Many Monsters and So Much Sushi. The central feature of each of the 3 games in the So Much More series is the same, and is quite novel in the Online Video Slots field – simple graphics and sounds with reel symbols that can be multiplied up to 25 times. Like most games in the large Microgaming library, this one can be played for real money or practiced for free to build confidence and sharpen skills, and can also be set to an AutoPlay mode. This allows busy players to carry on with other activities in their daily lives, while still spinning and winning.
Basic Fact and Figures
The game has 25 fixed paylines and 5 reels, with a coin betting range that goes from 0.01 to 0.2 per symbol per line and up to 20 coins able to be bet per line. The theoretical RTP is between 96% and 97%, and players stand to win a top Jackpot of 64,000 coins.
Look and Feel
So Much Candy has an old-fashioned sweet store theme, complete with Rock Candy, Gumball Machines, Fruit Sweets and Strawberry Swirls as features on the reels. The lower-value symbols are the commonly seen playing cards, starting with the 10 and going to the A, in a brightly-coloured and dynamic font. The reels themselves are simple and black so that the symbols are clearly seen, and are demarcated with poles covered in candy-cane stripes. A purple border surrounds the reels and the background music evokes traditional land-based Slots machine sound effects. Every successful symbol combination is accompanied by simple animations and celebratory sounds.
Much More Candy Feature
This feature gives the regular reel symbols in So Much Candy the ability to split into 5 of a kind, much like similar features in So Many Monsters and So Much Sushi. This means 25-symbol wins are within every player’s reach. The splits are executed randomly during any high symbol winning combinations that occur.
Other Special Features
Besides the regular Sweets high-value reel symbols, So Much Candy also offers a Wild and a Scatter Symbol. The Wild is the game logo and can multiply wins by up to 300x the original stake when it is part of winning combinations. The logo can stand in for any reel symbol to create successful configurations except the Scatter Bonus Symbol, which triggers the Bonus Game when 3 appear anywhere on the reels. At this point players need to choose 1 of 5 different candies in a line-up, each with different amounts of Free Spins and wins per line. Essentially, the lower the number of spins a player chooses, the higher the risk and the higher the possible rewards, so careful consideration is needed when making this decision. The different options can be tried without risk in the game’s Practice Play mode, allowing players to test them out and decide which ones work best for them.
