Almost everyone loves candy, even though it can lead to obesity and cavities. Booming Games has picked up on the public’s fondness for sweet snacks, and they’ve created a slot machine called Sugar Shack.
Set in a candy store, this five-reel, 10-payline game includes colorful symbols, free spins, level multipliers, and a gamble feature.
The paytable may not be the most existing feature of a slot machine, but it’s certainly one of the more useful. This is where you’ll learn about all the symbols and feature of a game, as well as seeing the various payline configurations. If you’re unfamiliar with a particular game, this is always the best place to start.
Some slots offer a multiplier payline, which means you multiply the listed amount on a winning line by the size of the wager to determine the prize. With the slots from Booming Games, however, the actual cash value is listed, and it changes to reflect the player’s wager. For the following examples, I risked 1.00 per line, for a total per-spin wager of 10.00.
In order to activate this bonus, the player must land three or more scatter symbols on the base game. While most products from Booming Games offer traditional bonus spins, the Sugar Shack slot has an added twist known as a level multiplier.
When the player first activates the free spins bonus, they receive 10 complimentary games and are considered to be on level one. If the bonus is re-triggered on this level, then an additional 10 spins are awarded at level two (where winnings are doubled). You can also advance to level three the same way, and this time all wins are tripled.
The Sugar Shack slot has 10 paylines, and the player may choose to activate any number of these. The bet-per-line options include 0.03, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 1.50, 2.00, and 3.00.
If you want to play for the lowest possible amount, a single active payline can be activated for just 0.03. Those who want to wager a much larger sum can choose the maximum bet, which equals 30.00 per spin. While this amount is fine for players on a budget, high rollers are sure to look elsewhere to get their slot fix.
When the customer gets a payout, they can either continue play as normal or try to double the size of their latest prize. In order to do the latter, they’ll need to click on the “Gamble” option located to the right of the reels.
If the player chooses to gamble, they’ll be presented with purple and orange gummy bears. One bear must be selected (or “eaten”), at which point another bear between the two will spin around and transform into one or the other. If it becomes the bear of your choice, then you’ll double the size of your wager. Otherwise, the bet is lost.
While the player can risk the entire amount of their latest payout, they also have a couple of other options during this phase:
The gamble feature can be selected 10 times in a row, or until the player’s winnings reach 10,000.00.
High rollers might sneer at the maximum wager of 30.00, but those with a low to intermediate bankroll are certain to get a rush from the Sugar Shack slot machine. The free spins bonus turns up more often than expected, and the accompanying level multiplier leads to fast and surprisingly generous payouts.
