We know that all players like games that have a bit of flavor, and you'll find a ton of it with the AGames-powered Candyland slot. While it's not the best in terms of graphics, it delivers on the gameplay side. It does this with a smart selection of features that come together in a different way than what we can remember having seen before with multiple wilds and plenty of ways to get paid.
In terms of game experience, the volatility isn't the lowest, but it's probably on the lower side of medium. The hit-rate is pretty strong, however, so there's not really going to be much in terms of really long streaks without anything really going on.
The format for this game is extremely simple and solid, and it's a big part of why the gameplay is so strong. There are 10 static paylines that pay from left to right only across five reels with three vertical rows of symbols. Betting is made pretty simple thanks to how even the numbers are here as well. Coins are worth $0.01 to $1 apiece, and you can bet from one to ten coins per payline. This leads to a minimum bet size of $0.10 per turn and a maximum of $100 per spin. This available betting spread includes plenty of options in between the max and min, and that makes it really easy for players to find an option that works well for them.
It's worth pointing out that the volatility being very much on the low side means that you can probably be more aggressive with your overall bet sizing than usual.
Pay Table Split
It's important to understand that the pay table of this game is split in a way to make it really easy to keep up with the general idea behind each symbol. The four different edible treats are the top-ranked symbols, and all six of the soda symbols are wild (more on that later if that seems excessive). Finally, the four card rank symbols are the low-paying ones. Keeping all of this in mind can help to make it much easier to know what's going on with prospective payouts as the game progresses.
Regular and Stacked Wild Symbols
You'll find three different sodas on the reels, and they all appear in two ways. These are all wild symbols. They can appear as a single symbol, or you can see them show up as a full stack of three. The single-symbol and triple-symbol versions are different in how they're presented (eg: the latter is much larger), but they're all wild and pretty much do the same thing.
The wild symbols don't get you any particular wins in this game. However, they show up often, and they help to get wins that you would have missed out on otherwise.
Stacked Soda Free Spins
If you get at least one of the stacked wilds to show up so that they completely cover a given reel, then you'll have a shot at some free spins. You're always given seven free spins, but the multiplier is determined by how many stacked soda bottles appeared completely on the reels to trigger the feature. One, two or three of them give multipliers of 2x, 3x and 4x, respectively. While we have reviewed and experienced thousands of online slots, we have never seen a bonus feature handle their multipliers quite like this, and that's a fun way to stand out from the crowd considering how many different games have free spins modes.
All Other Important Payouts
The main symbol that you'll really want to see the most other than the various wilds are the lollipop symbols. They show up as a big red and white swirl, and they pay out a top jackpot win of 1,000x for five of a kind combinations. You can even score 500x for just four of them, which is the same win as five of the purple donut symbols. The ice cream gets you 200x for five, and five of the candy cane is worth 100x.
The orange A symbol gets players 50x for five, and the wins for five of the pink K and green Q are 35x and 25x, respectively. Finally, the blue jack pays 10x for five on a payline.
The way the wilds work in this game is the main point of the gameplay, but the free spins modes with multipliers up to 4x are pretty nice as well. Candyland shows that AGames definitely knows how to bring it with feature-based gameplay, and that helps to give this game some redeeming value after seeing how not-together the graphics are. It's a shame because having the visual appeal be more put together would have really helped to set this game over the top.
