Sweets for My Sweet

The design of this online slot is a little bit different to the norm. While there are still five different reels, the rows in it are stunted. Therefore, you’ll see a 3x4x5x4x3 layout of them, giving a unique enough interface on which to play. It is upon these reels that you will find the game’s various different symbols. They are all present primarily in the form of different candies. This stands to reason, of course. They come in all different shapes and sizes, such as the large blue oblong and the red diamond shape. Each one looks tastier than the next. Collectively, these are the game’s base icons, with the larger ones providing larger pay outs. Simple, right?

As well as providing some intriguing icons and a novel layout, Candy Dreams has a total of 720 ways to win as well! This is not something that you’re able to adjust in any way. Therefore, 720 ways to win will always be in action. On the other hand, you can control the value of the wager that you bring into play per spin. Simply make use of the ‘Bank’ button on the right hand side of the reels. There, you can choose from a stake between £0.50 and £250 per spin. Autoplay functions are also present for you to use as you see fit. And it’s not only available via desktop computers either, but you can play it via mobile devices. So, those of you with smartphones and tablets can enjoy it while on the move.

Sugar for My Honey

As we said previously, Microgaming is quite well-known for adding appealing special features into its games. Candy Dreams is no different, offering up one or two additions for players to entertain themselves with. First of all, there’s the addition of a wild symbol. If this one shows up on a reel, it will stand in for all other icons in view in order to form a winning combination. The only exceptions to this rule come in the form of the game’s scatter and bonus offerings.

As far as the bonus icon goes, this comes in the form of the large, pink orb-like candy. If three or more of them come into view in any location, the Candy Planet round begins. In this feature, you will see a total of 20 Candy Planet icons come into view. You need to pick from these. Of them, 17 will contain a cash prize, two of them offer up a Pop and the final one has a Pop Blocker (the red heart). If you uncover a Pop, it will end the feature. If you manage to find the Pop Blocker though, this will combat the Pop and allow you to continue picking for more cash prizes.

Finally, there’s a free spins round in Candy Dreams as well. The candy lollipop icon works as the trigger for this round. Again, you’ll need to bring three or more of them into view in order to receive 12 free spins in total. During the free spins round, there is also the addition of a special wild icon. This comes in the form of the gift box. Should this symbol land in the middle of the third reel, up to three more wild icons come into view on the reels.

The Final Word

Candy Dreams is definitely one of those great games that takes us back to our childhood. Candies were always a great treat in those years, and Microgaming ensure that this slot is a great treat now. The special features nicely integrate themselves into the game, while the overall gameplay is thoroughly entertaining too, so new slot focused sites will happily add it to their selection of games.
