We hope you aren’t prone to toothache, because this surely is one of the sweetest slots on the block. Those familiar with the many different software developers that create exciting games will know that nearly every single one of them has a candy themed slot. Perhaps trying to appeal to a more feminine demographic, or just because no one can resist some cola bottles or delicious chocolate, this theme seems to work, and mFortune hasn’t hesitated to cash in on it. The game fits nicely in its portfolio, as it’s the first “sugary” slot among witch, prisoner, alien, cavemen and pirate themed slots. Just in time!
Developed in-house by a team called InTouch Games, Candy King is quite a special slot. Not only does it offer exciting graphics, the Candy King character and the candy factory setting offer lucrative wins. With spins starting at just 2p and going up to £5 (maximum bet £45 across all paylines), you can be as risky of a player as you want. Just keep in mind that the higher the wager, the higher the potential payoff, and I surely love to see large winning sums on my screen. How does the maximum win of 10,000 sound? Of course, that’s if you don’t play Double or Nothing feature with it!
It is also worthwhile mentioning that the slot is not just a video slot, but a jackpot one. I’ve always had a soft spot for mFortune’s jackpot games, because it gives you something extra to look forward to and keep you playing. At the moment, the jackpot stands at £2,818.38, which isn’t massive, but it’s a nice bonus to a day’s play.
We love the features of Candy King, as they are varied, colourful and of course rewarding. In addition to all of the features that I’m going to list, don’t forget that there is also the jackpot which can be triggered by collecting five times the Jackpot symbol on your reels.
First, there are the free spins which can be triggered by the free spins symbols. It depends on how many of these symbols (3,4 or 5) you get on the reels to get 5, 7 or 9 free spins respectively. The free spins offer an amazing opportunity to rake in extra cash, so look out for triggering them and rejoice when you do so.
Then, you’ve got yourself some wild symbols to chase after. Naturally, they substitute for any other symbol with the exception of Bonus and Free Spin symbols. The wild symbol, an oompah-loompah sort of character cannot substitute for a Jackpot symbol either and score you the jackpot, but any combination of Jackpot and Wild symbols that total 5 can get you a win worth 300 times your wager!
Third, the Double or Nothing feature is the one I love the most. You can choose to trigger the feature with every win that you get or with none of them. You can also choose to play Double or Nothing just on wins that are bigger £15, £50 and £100, because it can get quite fiddly if the feature is triggered for every 50p winning.
So, you choose the frequency at which you are presented with two chocolate bars. Which one has the golden ticket granting you double the winnings – mint or orange?
But Double or Nothing isn’t the most lucrative feature on the slot. That title is reserved for the Gumball Gamble. Every single time you trigger the feature by collecting 2, 3, 4 or 5 feature Gumball Machine symbols, you are taken to the mini-feature to play. Then, you use your tokens to make the conveyor belt run and get you a jar of sweets.
Depending on the sweet, the payout is larger or smaller, but you must choose if you want to take the multiplier, or take the risk and play again with hopes of scoring a larger multiplier. And with multipliers ranging from 14x to 60x, a potential massive win awaits.
The candy icons of Candy King glisten and shine while the game is idle, which tempts you into another spin. Instead of “spinning” the reels, they pop as if they were all in some sort of a bubble gum, which also adds to the great over-all performance of the slot. In addition, the Willy Wonka resembling top-hatted character pops out every single time the game is idle, as do the green-haired oompah-loompahs, inviting you back to the factory to experience what is brilliant slot performance.
The background to the game is that of a sweets factory and if you venture to the pay table to get information on the payouts and the features, the colorful conveyor belt and quality-stamps all remind you of an assembly line. Meanwhile, the home screen is bright and quite busy, but not too much so that you don’t know what you’re doing.
The “spinning” of the reels is pretty special, the winning combinations trigger some fun effects in the symbols, and all of this is accompanied by lighthearted and whimsical music to take the stress away. So, the final verdict on the performance? Top score! The game will not fail to please in terms of it’s appearance, sound or technical performance.
