Sweet Treats is taking place in a world entirely made out of candy, not unlike the Candy Crush universe at all. The hills, rivers, clouds, trees and more are carved out of cotton candy and other sweet delicacies, a true feast for the eyes.
Sweet Treats has a very colourful and childish look, with a central grid that makes it look even more like Candy Crush, which is clearly where the developers got their inspiration from. Not the most original choice, but the result is still very pleasant to look at.
The Best Symbols Will Drop
Sweet Treats is a drop-based game, which explains the use of a grid instead of spinning reels. Your goal is to create vertical or horizontal combinations of identical sweets, which will then explode and leave space for more. Each win awards a cash prize and fills up the progression bar on the right side of the screen. Once filled up, you are transported to the next level, where new bonuses are introduced. You can bet from 1 to 250 credits per turn on the 5×5 grid, with the usual bet max and autoplay functions available as well.
The basic paytable in Sweet Treats contains 7 colourful pieces of candy, the most valuable worth 20 times your initial wager. Note that each symbol has an individual value, making large clusters worth much more. The volatility is relatively low in Sweet Treats, making it dynamic and fun to play. You can try to recreate the bonus pattern displayed on the left side to win an additional prize of 600 credits, which is the first item on a long list of bonuses.
More Bonuses Than Ever Before
Regular slot games usually offer a handful of special symbols such as wilds, scatters and perhaps a specific jackpot symbol on top. Sweet Treats takes a very different approach and features a total of 12 special symbols – more than the regular icons!
You have to keep in mind that some of these symbols will be unlocked once you reach a specific game level, and checking out the paytable is a must here. Amongst the many bonuses you can expect, you have random symbol explosions, giant wilds, specific symbol changes and many other possibilities.
Next Sugar Fix
This is not the first time that we see a slot game full of sugar and sweets. Candy and Fruits by Merkur has a more retro yet efficient approach to the theme, with a high volatility and big wins to unlock, for instance. Another example of the genre is Sweet Party from Playtech, which incidentally is also a drop-based game.
Unique on Many Aspects
Sweet Treats is the guilt-free sugar overdose we have all been dreaming of. The graphics are on point and the animations dynamic enough to keep you hooked and high on glucose right away.
The sheer amount of bonuses in Sweet Treats can be a little dazzling, and certainly requires some getting used to at first. But once your candy knowledge is up to date, nothing can stop you from winning big in Sweet Treats.
