No word of a lie, I thought I was dreaming when I chanced upon Core Gaming and Next Gen’s Candy Grab slot: all my sweet-toothed fantasies had come true in this confectionary-stuffed reel spinner.
I do like a game with edible symbols like the Juicy Ninja slot and this fits that category perfectly.
Not only do you get your chance to be a gingerbread man- what?- but there are also five base game modifiers to keep you smiling (as long as you brush your teeth!) You could say that this game offers a sweet deal.
Candy Grab Slot Game Play
This sweet toothed slot takes place over 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 pay-lines. That’s double the lines that you’ll find on the Book of the Irish slot– another classically themed game. Yum.
The icons on the reels are an assortment of sweets that could tip any one of us into a sugar-induced coma. They include the game’s logo, a stripy lolly, sparkling sweets and jelly beans.
The Ace through 10 of the card deck are the colourful lower value icons of the play. Stand this game next to something like the “I am the Law slot machine” from 1X2 Gaming and it’s an explosion of colour.
A square striped sweet is the game’s Wild and subs for all icons except the Bonus icon which is the word “Bonus” plastered across a yellow candy. Collect five Wilds and you’ll feel 250 coins land in your virtual wallet. Yes please!
Sweet Board Bonus
With a trio or more of sweet Scatters, you trigger the bonus game, the Sweet Board Bonus. Now you’ll get your chance to dip your toe into sweetie land through a board game where you are gingerbread man on the road. I am sure I had a dream about this last night?
You’ll see a board to navigate around where you will collect free spins and cash prizes. Just hit the dice icon and let the good times roll! There are two candy striped lollies to watch out for: land on these and you come to a lolly wheel to spin to gain extra games or cash.
Here’s one word of warning, like all fairy tales, there’s a lurking baddie which is a marshmallow creature to avoid, get caught and the feature ends. Boo! Hiss! I’m just surprised it wasn’t a dentist lurking with a toothbrush.
To hit the big money in this game you’ll need to collect a trio of choccy stars which are won if you land on the Super Wins Spins square. And remember there are up to five free games on offer too.
Note that at any point in the base game you might find that the wee gingerbread man may turn up to throw you a sweet treat in the shape of five different modifiers which are applied to the spin. I love Gingas!
– Sugar Coated Wilds translates into between 2 and 4 reels turning totally Wild to max out your winning chances.
– Confection Perfection awards you a guaranteed large win.
– Sweet Wilds give you random additional Wilds to boost your win.
– And Jumbo Wilds do what they say on the tin, they land Colossal Wilds to drive pay-line wins. The first three reels combine into one mega reel with Mega Candy icon. Now land matching icons on reels 4 and 5 and cash in big time.
The Candy Grab slot was always going to get on this wombat’s radar (it had me at Candy too be honest) but appetite aside, the Sweet Board Bonus is an original extra where you are a gingerbread man! And those five reel modifiers try to give you more than just a sweet tooth- there’s money in candy land.
I loved my sweetie land escapade. I’m ready for my next mouth-watering visit.
Score: 4 out of 5
