This slot from MicroGaming starts off by asking a question – do you want to play as fruit or candy? A dentist might say fruit straight away, though everyone else playing can pick either with a clear conscience. The symbols on the reels will then reflect your choice. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll see candy all over the reels. If you go for the healthier option, cherries, kiwi fruits and orange segments fill the reels.
Each of the two modes in the game have their own free spins round with their own rules. Players will also find two bonus features which come along whichever mode you choose. Whichever one you do pick, you’re assured of a game chock full of variety.
Playing either mode will see the same reel setup. You have five reels in total and this slot makes use of the all-ways winning system. Instead of win lines, you’ll simply win when landing symbols on consecutive reels from left to right. This, irrespective of the position on the reels. In all, this gives you 243 ways to win on every spin, which come at the cost of 30 credits.
If you choose the fruit mode, the themed symbols on the reels are a cherry, an orange slice, a pineapple chunk, a slice of kiwi fruit and a blackberry. These pay between 250 and 100 coins for the maximum five in a row. In candy mode, the high paying symbols are a lollipop, a humbug, a fruit polo, a gummy bear and a purple jelly bean. These candy symbols have the same win amounts of between 250 and 100 coins.
Whichever mode you choose, the symbols will be completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A. These are the lowest paying symbols on the reels apart with top wins of between 60 and 40 coins.
The wild symbol is the same in both modes too. This shows the title logo of the slot and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter symbol. This wild is also the highest paying symbol in the game, with 300 coins heading your way for the maximum five in a row.
This game has two features which appear in both of the game modes. The first of these is the ‘Sugar Rush Bonus’ which sees all the high paying symbols (non-playing card symbols) award an instant prize. This immediate cash boost is always welcome. This feature appears at random.
The other general feature is a goodie bag, which is also a randomly awarded one. This will simply see a goodie bag appear on the reels and award an immediate cash prize.
Whichever mode you are in, you will activate the free spins feature by landing three or more scatter symbols.
In fruit mode, every time a playing card symbol appears on the reels it will disappear and be replaced by a coin amount. This amount will be added to your ‘stash’ and the round will continue until all the playing cards have disappeared from the reels.
In candy mode, every time you land a wild will see the whole reel becoming wild and filled with a candy stick. This reel will now remain wild and the feature will continue until all five stacks are filled with wilds. You’ll have a maximum of 50 free spins in this feature.
As you might imagine for a slot with such a name, this game has colour everywhere. The intro screen is split between fruit and candy, the fruit side backed with green, the candy backed by purple. The reels themselves have a pale blue backing, although the colour comes back in full force in the shape of the symbols. Overall, the game has a pleasing design, made better by some nice animation when you land a win. The sound track to the game adds a nice jingle every time you land a win.
This colourful slot is entertaining from start to finish. Choosing from between two modes makes the start of the game somewhat unique and this continues throughout the game. The choice you make is an important one, as the two free spins bonus round play very differently. With the ‘Sugar Rush’ bonus and the added goodie bag, there are more surprises appearing throughout the game too. This slot is fun, action packed and full of sugar!
