A Land of Flavour
Normally we can’t even be near a cake without piling on the pounds, but with the aesthetic of this game, you get all the pleasure of seeing deliciousness, without any of the calories. The design for Chocolate Slots has clearly been inspired by popular social activity Candy Crush, with the rolling landscape of cream covered hills and lollipop trees all too familiar.
Even though the graphics aren’t as original as we might have liked, they set the scene perfectly, allowing us to become kids in a sweet shop rather than adults with responsibilities and bills to pay. This is a land where joy reigns supreme and your greatest culinary desires can be sated with ease, provided they’re dessert based, of course.
243 Ways to Play
The reels might be standard, but the winlines are not, for Chocolate Slots has as many as 243 ways to win it big. What this should mean is that every spin brings in a win, but that isn’t the case. In fact, we found the volatility to still be rather high.
Thankfully though, the pay-in hasn’t been grossly affected by the the intensity of the ways to play, and so the betting range starts off at a simple and welcomed 0.25 credits. Think of the chocolate you can score with a fee like that – you could be drowning in it, like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Sweet as Candy
There’s three candy themed features to wrap your lips around, one of which is the Walking Wild Feature. Although this sounds like an extra far removed from chocolate, it delivers it in abundance, with just a single icon able to trigger a free spin. These extra games will continue so long as the wild symbol, a chocolate bar, is able to move from right to left, from one reel to the next. As soon as you can’t see a wild anymore, the feature will end.
That would have been icing enough for us, but then Arrow’s Edge threw in the Free Spins and Molten Chocolate Cake Feature, which go hand in hand. To get the additional games you need at least three of the double chocolate chip cookies, once you’ve done that, you need to wait for the molten cake to erupt and grant even more rounds. What is more, it’ll do so with some sticky wilds thrown in for good measure. The only problem is, this feature can only occur on the fifth reel, which makes it a little tricky to get.
Chocolate Slots keeps bringing the tasty fun with two progressive jackpots, one rather large and the other small but more instantaneous; the Mystery Jackpot and the Cash Grab. When we played, the totals for them were at 9,846 credits for the Mystery Jackpot and 1,932 for the Cash Grab Jackpot.
Even though these payouts are on offer, we have no idea what specifically triggers them because we never got there, and the information provided by the brand is limited. We assume that it’s a random occurrence, but that’s about all we can say at this time.
The Treat That Keeps on Giving
Arrow’s Edge has done a bang up job with Chocolate Slots, for it’s a slot machine that keeps on giving out extras and wins whenever you play. The regularness of those successes might not be as timely as we’d like, but they’re still there, ready and waiting for when we make a combo.
This is every chocolate lovers dream, and for those obsessed with healthy eating, the stuff of nightmares.
