Candy Stars slot REVIEW

Candy Stars ReviewPragmatic Play does the candy theme well, that much they have long since proved with the smash hit Sweet Bonanza, and Candy Stars is another interesting release in the Sweets-theme genre. It may not look like it at first glance though, given the rather run-of-the-mill presentation, but this one has a trick or two up its sleeve that makes it worthwhile.

The gameplay feels like a Megaways release without the Megaways engine, if that makes sense, as you get tumble wins that pop symbols and a top horizontal reel. All the action comes from the top reel, in the form of wilds with a multiplier that increases per tumble. It doubles in the bonus round, up to x128 at best, and this is how you’re most likely to close in on the 5,000x win cap.

Candy Stars Slot Features

The premium candy symbols pay between 2 and 7.5 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and you also get Star Wilds that step in for pay symbols to help complete wins. Wilds hold no value of their own, but they come with a multiplier feature we’ll cover below. Winning symbols are removed via the Tumble mechanic in all stages, and this allows for indefinite extra wins as long as you keep winning.

Wilds appear on the top horizontal reel only, and they are not removed by the tumble win feature. The wild multiplier starts at x1 in the base game, and it increases by +1 for each tumble win. The wild multiplier can go as high as x128, and they will boost any win they are part of.

You need 3 diamond scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the Bonus Round, and this awards 8 free spins. You will get 1 wild on the top horizontal reel per free spin, and they come with a starting multiplier of x2.

The wild multiplier doubles after each tumble win, up to x128 at best. You win +5 extra spins when you land 3 scatters in the same tumbling sequence or on the same spin. Non-UK players can buy the bonus round for 80x the stake (the top-tier RTP is then 96.26 %). The bonus round triggers organically 1 in 216 spins on average.

You get to see some base game wins for a while, before we trigger the bonus round at 1:26 into the 3:31-minute highlights video. The feature plays out for the remainder of the video, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.

Review Summary

We don’t think too much time and effort went into this game, but Candy Stars delivers pretty entertaining gameplay nonetheless. The candy presentation is hardly original, but the wild multiplier system is not something you see too often. Wilds are the “star of the show”, literally, and the hypnotic bonus round backdrop feels like a trippy ride through a wormhole made of the star-spangled banner.

With 576 ways to win, the wild multipliers can make a dent in all stages of the game, and not least in the bonus round where the multiplier value doubles per tumble. This can lead to solid payouts up to 5,000x your stake, and the 1 in 2,159,827 win cap probability is pretty decent as well. Overall, Candy Stars is worthwhile because of the features more than anything, but it probably helps if you enjoy candy-infused games.
