Candy Stars hits the sweet spot for Pragmatic Play

Candy Stars hits the sweet spot for Pragmatic Play

Released to the market at the end of last month, Candy Stars has already had an impact on numerous slot enthusiasts. This highly colourful title from Pragmatic Play boasts five reels, three rows and 576 different ways in which you can win. 


Players may be reminded of a Candy Crush vibe, particularly when factoring in the theme of the slot, not to mention the layout. A minimum stake of just 0.20 per spin is a reasonable amount considering the amount of ways in which you can win, while this goes up to a maximum bet of $100. 


As is regarded as standard in the industry, the highest win will reward players with 5000x their principal bet.

What are the standout features?

Bursting with four different bonus features, Candy Star players benefit from the Tumble feature, in addition to some tempting sticky wilds that each vary in form and characteristics, while you can also purchase free spins if you so wish, to try and increase your chances of winning big. 


The sticky wilds include a tumble feature whereby a wild will hold its position if it lands on the top row, so until the tumbles from the spin are complete. After every tumble, the multiplier increases x1, with it being possible to reach 128x and therefore some huge potential wins.


When you land three or more scatter symbols in the game, it means that you trigger free spins, with this feature taking the shape of a diamond and appearing only on reels one, three or five. Initially, you are awarded eight free spins, however, should you hit more scatter symbols during the bonus round, these could increase.


Why play the Candy Stars slot?

This is a highly enjoyable and entertaining slot game for both those who are new to playing online slots in addition to more seasoned enthusiasts. If you are a fan of the popular free game Candy Crush, then this will certainly appeal, due to its similar interface and bright, cascading colours that dominate the gameplay experience.


It has a significantly attractive RTP, which means that you can win a higher amount on average than on other slots, while the possibility to win 5000x your original stake is another highlight that it has going for it. Aided by multipliers of 128x, this also adds more excitement to the gameplay, knowing that this eventuality could happen within a few spins.


Another thing that the slot really has going for it, is the very friendly theme, that is simple to understand and does not take much thinking about. The nature of the graphic user interface (GUI), means that the slot comes across as stunning on any mobile device with this immersive style very easy on the eye. 


Perhaps the only downside to this slot is that it has quite a high minimum stake per spin, with some slots being as low as 0.05, however, the higher RTP goes some way to making up for this.


Overally, Candy Stars is certainly worth checking out and with Pragmatic Play’s latest release set to spark nice surprises.
