IGT has a massive back catalogue of video slots to choose from when it comes to picking out new mobile releases and it is for this reason that it is not uncommon to see ‘new releases’ that already look a bit dated. At the time of this review, Candy Bars has only been out for a couple of months as a mobile slot, but when you factor in how long it has been available online and on land, you will begin to see why it might not be the most striking. With that said, another benefit of such an extensive back catalogue is that IGT is able to home in on the games that players already know and love – so if you have already established a rapport with Candy Bars in the past, this mobile slot review is for you!
What to Expect
The relative simplicity in the appearance of this game belies the fact that it is a pretty big slot, even by IGT standards, with fifty lines of action in play over four rows of symbols. You will probably have noticed that the game has to be played in portrait orientation too, and that is to allow the various jackpots to appear at all times – although we will have more on them shortly.
There is a mix of candy symbols and classic slots icons on the board, along with a couple of special symbols. One of the sweets is pink and blue, and this one appears only on reels two and three but will fill in for all other symbols as a wild card. The symbol can land in full stacks and will also multiply prizes by two, along with being able to multiply itself – so if you manage to land a wild on reels two and three at the same time, thereby guaranteeing a win, the total prize will be boosted four times over.
The main draw on this game, especially in the absence of free spins and pick bonuses, is the aforementioned jackpot selection. They are not progressive, but they will grow as you play and you are the only one attempting to win them. The prizes are seeded at a decent amount based on your stake, and winning them all comes down to landing chocolate on the reels. Fill reel two and the Snack Size jackpot is yours. Increase that to reels two and three and the King Size jackpot is won. Finally, if you can fill reels two, three and four with chocolate at the same time then the Giant Size jackpot is yours for the taking, and there is always plenty to be won on the game in this manner.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Candy Bars definitely keeps things simple, of that there is no question, but if you’re feeling selfish and you’re a fan of chocolate then the jackpot implementation on this game is ideal. We are not going to pretend that this is one of the true legends in the IGT mobile slots range, but for the right kind of player that is not all too bothered about free spins and other trimmings and is more interested in the big wins, this game continues to deliver after all these years.
