In Candy Stars slot by Pragmatic Play it’s all about colorful candies while the soundtrack boasts an electronic tune. Sweets are not usually associated with dancing but the studio has found a way to mix these two things together and make it work. Anyhow, a 128x Sticky Wild Multiplier and 5,000x max win can certainly make anyone's mouth watering.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Candy Stars represents a childhood dreamland filled with all kinds of sweets from pudding to lollipops. The slot runs on a 3x5 layout but there’s also an extra horizontal reel on top. Although this layout is implemented by mostly Megaways slots, Candy Stars is not one of them. The game functions like a traditional online slot with 20 paylines, 96.47% RTP, high volatility and a juicy 5,000x max win.
The base game has 2 features working together to keep it compelling. There’s a Tumble feature which means after every win, the winning symbols explode and new ones fall down to replace them. There’s also a Sticky Wild in the shape of a star which comes carrying a 1x multiplier but each new tumble will add an extra 1x to its value.
Collect 3 Scatters in the shape of a diamond to enter the bonus round with 8 free spins (or buy it for 80x the bet). In this round, a Wild symbol is guaranteed to appear on the top horizontal reel and it also carries a 2x multiplier instead of 1x. The maximum value the multiplier can reach is 128x. There are no other special rules, except that free spins are retriggerable if 3 Scatters land during the bonus round.
Candy-themed slots are quite frequently produced but I can’t say I blame the providers for doing so. There is a certain upbeat gaming atmosphere that’s created once a player starts spinning candy-filled reels. At least that is the case with me. Anyway, both the visual and gameplay design for Candy Stars doesn’t offer anything new but the game does offer a good time for those not looking for something too novel. 8 free spins might not sound like a lot but if that Sticky Multiplier Wild keeps hitting, it can skyrocket your balance.
