So Much Candy has been developed by Microgaming, and it is part of a collection of slot machines which also has titles like So Much Sushi or So Many Monsters. The obvious focus of its theme is on candy, same as many other slot machines available at online casinos today. The game that we have here gets 25 lines that can be activated on its 5 reels. You will find features inside that are quite rare in other titles, with the split symbols being the most obvious ones. There are also free spins though, along with the scatters that trigger them and with the wilds which are present in all games these days. The game promises a jackpot of $320,000, but it doesn’t offer it easily.
In order to let you wager the amount that is possible in this game, up to $500, you need to spend as much as $20 for each of the 25 lines available. You don’t have the choice to change the number of lines, so the bets start from the minimum of $0.20. You can modify the coin value, and take it up to $1, or you can change the number of coins used per line, which have a maximum limit of 20.
It is a theme that you will have no trouble finding in other slot machines, quite a few of them actually. It’s candy related, so that is what you’re seeing in its most important symbols. The different types of candy are used for the major symbols, but the less important ones are still getting the poker card collection, from 10 to Ace in this case. Look at the background, and the image you see there will offer more of the same thing, with the same candy pieces occupying much of the visible space. I haven’t found So Much Candy to be interesting design wise, despite the quality of the general design. The game is too common looking, with symbols that you can expect from any other similar slot machine, even if it’s from another developer. The quality is good, as I mentioned, I doubt you will find a problem with it. However, I also doubt that you will be excited once the game loads up.
First of all, let’s get the wild symbol out of the way, since it’s the one that works exactly as expected, and the one that feels least special about this slot machine. Used in the game as a replacement, the wild features the logo of the slot with the words So Much Candy. You may use it in combination with regular symbols, as a wild, or you can have only logos on a line and get paid as much as $150,000 for a combination of this type. Perhaps the most important feature of all in this slot is the one that borrows from the game’s title, being called Much More Candy. It will trigger whenever you have a winning combination of three or more candy icons, the ones which pay more. If this happens, you will find that the high symbols will split, showing you between 1 and 5 identical pieces of candy in a single icon. The game takes into account all visible pieces of candy from a line, and pays you accordingly. To give the example of the best paying symbol of the game, the one with the red heart on it, for combinations with 6 to 25 candy pieces in them, you can win between $1,400 and $320,000 (at maximum bet). There are only five high paying symbols that can do this, the ones which show candy in them. Wilds and poker card symbols continue to form combinations just based on the number of symbols, with 3 to 5 possible in their case. There is a candy dispenser as well among the symbols, the one that the slot makes use of as a scatter. Having two to five such symbols in view will get you a cash prize, while with three or more you get the free spins feature as well. In the free spins feature, you will find that you get a single candy symbol, which replaces all others, so the chances of forming combinations increase considerably. Depending on the candy symbol that you end up with, you can get anywhere from 8 spins with wins of up to $320,000, to 16 spins which have wins of up to $160,000.
As I mentioned previously, the biggest possible prize in the game can get to a value of $320,000 for the symbols formed on a single line. This is only possible through the Many More Candy feature though. The kind of payouts that can be won in So Much Candy shouldn’t be expected to come your way on a regular basis. The average RTP of 96.22% shows that it’s just as profitable as any other slot machine in the long run, no more.
I think that So Much Candy can be a game to enjoy, particularly if you’re interested in a different kind of game, with unique features and huge potential payouts.
