Candy Dreams is a 5 reel, 720 ways to win slot from Microgaming. Playable all desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 50p to £250 per spin, this fresh and fun game is set in a colourful galaxy filled with tasty treats and benefits from 2 bonus features.
Visually, Candy Dreams is bright and full of colour – set in space, symbols on the reels include 9 different coloured sweets, a wild and 2 scatters. The wild substitutes for all symbols bar the 2 scatters. The background is predominantly purple – it looks a little like Candy Crush in space!
Wins can be formed on adjacent reels which helps you getting winning combinations. There’s a Candy Planet Bonus feature which is played when the 3 or more planet scatters appear anywhere on the reels – this is classic pick me style round where you pick planets until your pop.
More interestingly, there’s a Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or more rainbow swirly lollipop scatters anywhere on the reels – this will reward you with 12 free spins. During the feature, a present will appear on the middle reel and then place up to 3 wilds on the reels – this happens on every single free spin.
Candy Dreams uses the same game engine as Pollen Party but does look better – visually, it’s vibrant, colourful and fun. Variance wise, it’s low with maximum wins of up to 440 times your stake on each spin. Overall, it’s just another game from Microgaming that doesn’t come close to some of their cult favourites. I’d much rather play Fortune Girl which was released at the same time.
