There are a number of themes that continue to prevail in the online slot world, and candy is one of them. Appearing in a multitude of games from exploding ways to expanding reels, players with a sweet tooth can find new adventures around every corner. Now, Just For The Win are jumping on that bandwagon as they bring us Candy Paradise.
With RTP options available up to 96.02%, this highly volatile release can produce wins up to 5,000x bet.
Well, it’s certainly a candy paradise we find ourselves in today as we settle in candy floss clouds set against a bright blue sky. Remnants of land in the form of pale orange rocks and bright green grass are visible underneath, lined with lollipop trees.
Most of the focus is on the reels, which are filled with a variety of sweet treats and bright colours, the meter at the lefthand side and bonus wheel underneath, both of which we’ll cover soon. It’s all finished off with a light and upbeat tune to tie it all together.
Candy Paradise Base Features
Taking place across 5 reels, wins are formed on Candy Paradise by matching at least 3 symbols on adjacent reels, beginning with the leftmost reel, across 1 of 30 fixed win lines. Symbols available begin with non premiums, with blue clubs, orange diamonds, red hearts and pink spades, awarding wins between 0.20 and 1x bet for matches between 3 and 5 of a kind.
At the premium end we have grapes, oranges, cherries and 7s. Land 3 of a kind of any premium to see wins between 0.50 and 1x bet, increasing to values between 2.50 and 10x bet for 5 of a kind matches. Finally, rainbow Wilds are available and substitute for all symbols except Bonus or Free Spins symbols.
Wild Symbol Collection
Alright, the first thing to cover in Candy Paradise is the Wild Symbol Collection.
Each time a Wild symbol lands on the reels, it is collected in the meter to the left of the reels. When the meter has been filled +1 Wild Swirls are added to the Wild Counter and the meter resets back to 0.
Up to 9 Wild Swirls can be collected in the base game.
Wild Respin Feature
Randomly, when 1 or more Wild symbols land in view and are collected, the Wild Respin feature may be triggered.
During this feature, the number of Wild Swirls in the Wild Counter are distributed onto the reels in random positions.
Wild Swirls may overlap and become Multiplier Wilds. Overlapping will increase the multiplier of the Wild Swirl by +1 for each new Wild that lands on top.
If more than one Multiplier Wild is used in the same winning combination their values are multiplied together and then applied to the win.
The maximum multiplier of any Wild Swirl is x5.
There are no Bonus symbols or Free Spins symbols on the reels during the Wild Respin feature.
Land 2 Bonus symbols on reels 1 and 5 to trigger the Bonus Wheel.
Each segment on the Bonus Wheel offers a different prize.
- Cash Prize – 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 15x, 50x, 100x, 250x, 750x or 5,000x bet.
- Free Spins – 7, 10 or 15 spins.
- Wilds – adds +25 Wilds to the Collection Meter.
After 9 Wild Swirls have been collected in the base game the +25 Wilds prize becomes an additional 10 Free Spins.
Candy Paradise Bonus
Land 3 Free Spins symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger 7 Free Spins. Alternatively, the Bonus Wheel can award 7, 10 or 15 Free Spins.
During Free Spins the number of Wild Swirls accumulated at the point of trigger will be randomly distributed onto the reels at the start of every spin.
Just as they can in the base game, Wild Swirls may overlap and become Multiplier Wilds. Overlapping will increase the multiplier of the Wild Swirl by +1 for each new Wild that lands on top – up to a maximum value of x5.
If more than one Multiplier Wild is used in the same winning combination their values are multiplied together before being applied.
Free Spins Bonus Wheel
The Bonus Wheel can be triggered during Free Spins in the same way it can in the base game.
Possible prizes during Free Spins are:
- Cash Prize – 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 15x, 50x, 500x or 5,000x bet.
- Free Spins – 2, 3, 5 or 7 additional spins.
- Wilds – 1, 2 or 3 additional Wild Swirls.
When Free Spins end the Wild Counter is reset back to 0.
Before returning to the base game, players can choose from 3 candies to increase the Wild Counter by 2, 3, 4 or 5 Wild Swirls.
There is no feature buy available in Candy Paradise.
The maximum win available in Candy Paradise is 5,000x bet. If the sum of a single game round exceeds this, the game round will end and 5,000x bet will be awarded.
There isn’t a great deal to say about Candy Paradise – a simple game with a simple theme.
All things considered, it may have been better suited to a low or medium volatility maths model, but as always it’s worth the reminder that there’s no centralised database for volatility, so this ‘high’ could be another studios ‘medium’. I digress.
In the base game, the Wild Counter producing Wild Swirls and triggering the Wild Respin feature carry almost all of the weight, aided by the Bonus Wheel to trigger cash prizes, additional Wilds or Free Spins. The good news is that no matter how many times respins are triggered the Wild Counter does not reset, only doing so at the end of Free Spins – although even then up to 5 additional Wild Swirls are awarded.
Free Spins are distinctly more exciting than the base game, with any active Wild Swirls added to the reels at the start of every spin. With the ability to produce multipliers up to x5 through this feature and multiple multipliers multiplying together, it’s quite easy to see how Candy Paradise can produce wins up to 5,000x bet – not to mention the actual maximum win prize on the Bonus Wheel in Free Spins and the base game.
Finally, maths is highly volatile and RTP options are available up to 96.02%, so as always it’s worth checking this. If you’re looking for a simple release with a nice maximum win, Candy Paradise could suit you. If you prefer something more complex or advanced, you might need to shop around a bit more.
