The theme of sweet treats and candy is a popular one for slot developers. Games such as Sugar Train and Candy Dreams have proved to be hugely popular with players in the past and this time we are looking at Microgaming’s latest effort in this genre. It’s called Sugar Parade and it’s a colourful and light-hearted outing that takes us on an adventure to what can only be described as Candyland!
Microgaming sticks to the classic formula with 5 reels and 15 paylines in total and the game can also be played for free on the Fruity Casa Casino. There is a jackpot within the base game of 500X your line bet so it might even net you a massive cash prize. You can gamble from just 15p and the maximum wager that can be placed is a whopping £375 so there are plenty of different bets that can be placed on this game. Players can also use the auto-play menu if they are planning on playing on staying for a while.
Aesthetically, it looks brilliant with a Candyland theme complete with lots of wacky-looking characters. The backdrop of the game sets the scene with the fantasy land clearly visible. Some of the detail is pretty impressive. The reels appear to be constructed out of candy canes in pink and blue colours. The lower-value symbols are fancy-looking letters and numbers. The higher-value symbols are the characters that we mentioned and they come in different colours such as yellow, green and pink. They are pretty funny to look at and add a bit of charm to this game.
In addition to the normal symbols, there are some bonus symbols to look out for as well as you might expect. There is a wild symbol which is the game’s logo and it substitutes for almost all others and can help players pick up additional wins when it appears. There is also the Ice Cream scatter and the King bonus symbol as well which can trigger each bonus feature respectively. The Ice Cream scatter can offer players free spins when it lands at least 3 times. You will be awarded 10 free spins and a 3X multiplier as well.
The second bonus feature is the Picking Game. This is activated by the King bonus symbol and you will be teleported to another screen when it activates. You will be awarded 3, 4 or 5 picks from a selection of twelve and you will be awarded a cash prize which will be added to your balance. That’s it for the bonus features on Sugar Parade. Overall, we had great fun playing it and it really does remind us of Sugar Train. If you like games in this genre then certainly head over to Fruity Casa and have a few spins!
