Big Sugar Bonanza: Slot Overview

Candy slots have carved out a popular niche in the online gambling market, with each one bending over backwards to present as sugary, a sweet-fill, tooth-busting wonderland as possible. You know the drill: bright, pastely, frosty-coated dream worlds that are like the adult gambler version of lying back in a crib and listening to a lullaby. Software provider Stakelogic has upped the ante by not only designing a classic candy slot world, they've created a new race of beings called the Fluffkins, and one joins players as they experience cascading cluster wins, a growing Mystery Multiplier, free spins, and a feature buy.

Big Sugar Bonanza is played on a 7x7 gaming grid, with a rather lush, fluffy cupcake on one side of it and a Fluffkins character in front of the Candy Castle on the other. Its name is Gumdrop Giggles, and every so often, Gumdrop consumes whatever treat it's holding in its hand, and the big grinned antics follow players at all times. There's not much else to bang on about in regards to Big Sugar Bonanza's sights and sounds. Suffice it to say the game is about as sugary sweet as a candy slot gets.

Bets in Big Sugar Bonanza can be selected as low as 20 c per spin or as high as $/€100, with no Super Stake available this time. A feature buy is, though, as is a highly volatile math model, and it was apparent how this set of features could hurt or humour depending on which way the game is leaning. In the long term, Big Sugar Bonanza's maximum RTP value has been recorded at 96.01%.

Symbols become part of a cluster when they are connected vertically or horizontally. At least 5 matching symbols connected this way create a win. Four hard candies are Big Sugar Bonanza's low-pay symbols, and three cake objects are its highs. Cluster wins of 5 matching symbols pay players 0.2 to 1 times the bet. The biggest cluster pay tier is 15 symbols, worth 20 to 150 times the bet. Wild symbols are not part of Big Sugar Bonanza's base game or bonus round.

Big Sugar Bonanza: Slot Features

Big Sugar Bonanza combines cascading wins, a Mystery Multiplier which grows in size and multiplier value, free spins where the Mystery Multiplier roams, and a feature buy.

Cascading Wins

Each symbol in a cluster win explodes off the reels, leaving spaces on the board. Big Sugar Bonanza fills these gaps by dropping symbols downwards, providing another chance to win on the same spin.

Mystery Multiplier

On every spin, there is a random chance the Mystery Multiplier appears on the grid under the reel symbols. In size, it can be anything from 1x1 up to 7x7, taking up the whole matrix. The Mystery Multiplier has an x1 multiplier attached until at least one winning symbol explodes on top of it. With each consecutive explosion, the multiplier value doubles. The multiplier applies to all winning combinations that explode on top of it. The possible values range from x2 to x512.

Free Spins Bonus

The free spins symbols may land on any reel. Getting 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 scatters in view awards 10, 12, 15, 20, or 30 free spins, respectively. For free spins, the Mystery Multiplier appears under the reels right away, with an x1 multiplier in a size of 1x1, and stays on the grid, moving to a new position before each free spin until the end of the feature. If 2 scatter symbols are collected during free spins, the Mystery Multiplier increases in size, and +1 extra spin is awarded.

Feature Buy

The free spins round can be instantly triggered from the base game by buying it for 100 times the bet.

Big Sugar Bonanza: Slot Verdict

For a sweety, cutey, saccharine slot, they rarely get as sweety, cutey, or as saccharine as Big Sugar Bonanza. Not content with just throwing a boatload of sugary items on the screen, Stakelogic has cranked up the charm factor by inventing a new species, the Fluffkins, and putting a big smiled example in the form of Gumdrop Giggles on the screen for players' enjoyment, should they be into this lovably goofy sort of thing. Perhaps it was to cushion the blow of gameplay that wasn't always lovably goofy, though comparable in many ways to the popular Pragmatic Play slot Sugar Rush, with noticeable differences.

As for the multiplier effect, there were a lot of Mystery Multiplier teases, appearing underneath the symbols frequently, sporting the starting x1 value. But connecting wins on top of a Mystery Multiplier was trickier than first suspected. It didn't see a whole lot of action, and after a while, Big Sugar Bonanza just didn't evoke the same compulsive urges to keep going as Sugar Rush, which marks winning reel positions on every single win, then starts knocking out multiplier values from the second consecutive win onwards. Sugar Rush could also have loads of multipliers all over the reels, adding their values together when more than one multiplier is part of a win. In Big Sugar Bonanza, you get one value, attached to one multiplier symbol, full stop. That value can be attached to a big symbol, though, which might be fun, covering up to the entire gaming area, meaning it would connect with every single cluster win. The value is able to reach x512, too, which it did not do during the test session, but would be quite intense IRL if it happened.

So much so, you can see how Big Sugar Bonanza's 10,000x win cap might possibly be achieved by the right lucky player. That figure is double Sugar Rush's cap, though significantly less than what Sugar Rush 1000 has, if big win numbers are of key importance. Equally important, if not more so, is playability, and whilst Big Sugar Bonanza has the components to make a sweet tooth grin, other, more indulgent candy slots exist.

Fair

Whilst charming, Big Sugar Bonanza’s gameplay doesn’t quite hit the sweet spot.
