Candy Stars – Pragmatic Play
Läs denna artikel på svenska här
Pragmatic Play’s brand new game release Candy Stars is a pretty average slot in many ways. It is built on five reels with three rows on each of them, plus an additional horizontal reel with three symbols above the middlemost reels. With the horizontal reel included the rows are in 3-4-4-4-3 formation creating a total of 574 winlines for the player.
The main symbols that are featured in the game are mentioned in its name already. Yes, you guessed it right, there will be candies and stars! The premium symbols of the game are depicted with different brightly colored sweet looking candies, but the real stars of the show are the Star Wilds that can only land on the horizontal reel.
Main mechanics here include the Tumble feature, which we have seen in many games before. What this means exactly is that when you get a win, all the winning symbols will be removed from your reels to make a room for new symbols dropping in to replace them. This goes on for as long as there is new wins generated.
The Star Wild symbols act bit differently here however, as those will not be removed even if they are a part of a winning line. Instead they will stay where they landed on the horizontal reel and receive a +1 on their win multiplier with each tumble action that happens. The multiplier can grow as high as 128x and it will be applied to any win that the Star Wild in question is part of.
The game also has a Free Spin feature, which will be triggered if you land three Diamond Scatters. Those can only land on reels #1, #3 and #5. The feature always starts with 8 free spins, and during the free spins those features from the base game are boosted quite significantly, as now you get one guaranteed Star Wild on the horizontal reel with every single spin. The Star Wild also comes with a starting multiplier of 2x (instead of 1x in the base game) and now each tumble action doubles the multiplier instead of just adding +1x to it. The maximum multiplier is still the same as in the base game though; up to 128x. You can also extend the feature and get 5 more free spins if you manage to land three more Scatter symbols during the same spin or tumbling sequence.
As mentioned in the very beginning of this article, the game feels very average overall. It is not a bad game by any means, but honestly there just isn’t anything super special or innovative either. All of its features we have already seen in other games in one form or another, and even the candy theme is quite a common one. But what we really liked here was the Star Wild multipliers, as those can bring very nice hits even during the base game. The maximum win in this slot is not too bad either at 5000x your stake, so there is actually potential to hit some massive wins! Try it yourself at Chanz.com!
