Pragmatic Play has prepared quite a treat in its new release, the Candy Stars slot. With all sorts of delicious candies dropping on reels, the maximum prize of 5,000x the bet is there to sweeten the play even more.
Due to superb graphics and attractive design, it is really a mouth-watering experience. The 5×3 grid makes this game look like a cute slot with a simple set of rules, but it offers highly volatile gameplay.
Besides the variance at the highest level, the game turns up the heat whenever the Sticky Wild multiplier is firing. Another surprising thing is the number of paylines and the way reels turn.
Candy Stars actually uses tumbling mechanics and offers up to 576 ways to win, something usually reserved for megaways slots. The principle is the same – winning symbols are removed from the board after a payout, making room for new symbols to fall into empty spaces and potentially trigger another tumble.
The game gets more interesting and surprising with every spin, especially when you get to bonus rounds and special symbols like the Wild. Contrary to all other symbols, the Wild isn’t removed when it lands on the top row.
Instead, it remains in the same position until the end of all tumbles from the current spin. In the base, the Wild starts with a multiplier of 1x and increases by 1 time after every tumble, potentially reaching the value of up to 128x.
The Diamond Scatters activates 8 free spins when three of them land together. One Wild is guaranteed to appear on the top row in a random cell every free spin, but here their multiplier starts from 2x.
Also, after each tumble during free spins, the multiplier value is doubled, making reaching the maximum multiplier of 128x more probable. For players who want to get their hands on some free spins right away, there is a Bonus Buy option that costs 80x the bet.
Pragmatic Play is the creator of one of the most popular candy-themed slots, the famous Sweet Bonanza. Candy Stars is a worthy addition to the provider’s series of delicious-looking game that combines interesting gameplay with gorgeous visuals.
Launched just days after Muertos Multiplier Megaways and Pirate Golden Age, Candy Stars join the Pragmatic portfolio of premium slots. Besides already being the busiest provider in the industry, the developer has recently up its game even further, now launching up to impressive 7 new slots every month.
