101 Candies Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 7×7 grid + cluster pays

Stakes Range: 20p to £120 per spin

RTP: 96.08%

Max Win: 3,580 x bet

The 101 Candies slot is played on a 7×7 grid and uses the Cluster Pays mechanic. 5 or more matching symbols in view will create a winning combination. These winning symbols will disappear, which starts an Avalanche of symbols that can potentially create new winners. This will continue until no new winners are formed.

You can bet from as low as 20p up to £120 per spin. Catering to all bankrolls, you simply hit the – and + buttons below the reels to adjust your total stake. You can also click the bet value in the middle to bring up a set of predefined values to pick from. Notice that the bet is shown in numbers instead of currency. 1 = £1 for your reference.

The 101 Candies RTP is 96.08%, which is slightly above the industry average. But it’s important to note that slot sites in the UK have access to different RTP versions – 95.06%, 94.09%, 94.07% and 88.02%. So just make sure you’re playing the one you want at your chosen casino.

Volatility is in the low to medium range, which is good news as there are so many volatile grid slots on the market. This will allow for bigger wins more often than games with higher variance.

The maximum win is 3,580 x the bet. This isn’t as high as a lot of other slots on the market, but the volatility levels at least help cushion the blow a little. The max in probability is 1 in 50 million, which is also quite high in comparison.

Sweets are on the menu here, with celebratory balloons to the right of the reels bursting with colour. It reminds me a little of NetEnt’s Fruit Shop Megaways slot initially, with the reels set in the countryside once again. Day turns to night when the Free Spins feature is triggered, and not much else changes visually. The graphics look OK, but it’s all fairly basic in truth, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The grid is set inside a small van too, which is an odd choice.

In terms of the soundtrack, it’s quite easy on the ears as you spin away. Land a winner and things intensify slightly to add to the overall appeal. Still, I wasn’t a fan overall but that’s just my personal taste. Land the Free Spins feature and the audio turns almost dance or pop-like, which is an improvement on the base game in my opinion. But again, it’s all fairly basic.

On the reels, the candies not in wrappers make up the lower-paying symbols. These are joined by higher-paying blue, green and red candies that are in wrappers. The red wrapped candy symbol pays the most, awarding up to 30 x the bet for 12+ in a cluster.

The Wilds in the game all appear on the top Conveyor and can land on the reels with wild multipliers up to 101x. The Scatters is a rocket full of candy, and 3 or more of those will trigger the Free Spins feature. More on that further down in the review.

101 Candies Mobile

101-candies-mobile-slot

Released on the 5th of September 2023, the 101 Candies mobile slot is available to play on smartphones, tablets and desktops. The 7×7 reel layout lends itself well to smartphones in particular, including those operating with iOS and Android technology. However, I always personally prefer playing grid slots on a bigger screen.

101 Candies Bonus Features

There are 7 bonus features to enjoy in the 101 Candies slot game. Wilds can appear with multipliers up to 101x, there are 4 different modifiers that can enhance the gameplay and there are up to 15 free spins on offer depending on how many Scatters land in the base game. Read on as we run you through everything, starting with the Wilds.

Wild Conveyor feature

In both the base game of the 101 Candies slot game and the Free Spins feature, there is a Wild Conveyor full of Wilds above the reels, as you’ll notice in the screenshots in this review. During each avalanche, the leftmost Wild will move from above onto the reels and all Wilds in the Conveyor will shift to the left. This can enhance wins and each Wild will have a multiplier attached up to 101x.

The Wild Conveyor resets every spin in the base game but not in the Free Spins feature.

Feature Coin Symbols

During an avalanche, a Feature Coin symbol could appear on the reels. Here’s what to expect if one lands in view during your game:

Symbol Description
101-candies-slot-upgrade-symbolUpgrade Increases multipliers of all Wilds by 1 up to a maximum of 101x.
101-candies-slot-destroy-symbolDestroy Removes 5 leftmost Wilds from the Wild Conveyor.
101-candies-slot-scramble-symbolScramble Shuffles all Wilds on the wild Conveyor.
101-candies-slot-transform-symbolTransform Choose a random paying symbol and replaces them all with one other symbol.

Free Spins feature

101-candies-slot-free-spins-feature

3 or more Scatters on the reels in the base game will trigger this bonus feature. Here’s how many free spins you will get depending on how many Scatters land:

Scatters Free Spins
3 10
4 11
5 12
6 13
7 14
8 15

Simply spin away until your free spins run out. Retriggers are not possible here and the Wild Conveyor will only reset once, which will happen at the start of the bonus round. Other than that, it plays in exactly the same way as the base game.

Non-UK players can buy the Free Spins feature for 100 x the bet. Between 10 and 15 free spins will be awarded.

Originality








The 101 Candies slot reminded me of NetEnt’s Cupcakes slot which was released back in December 2022. Similar symbols and sweet-related with tons of multipliers. The max win potential here is better, which is good to see. Not much better but it’s still an improvement. But is the slot an overall improvement on what we’ve seen in the past? Not really. Everything is a bit slow for my liking and there isn’t anything I’ve not seen before.

The positives? I liked the way the Wild Conveyor mechanic worked. Landing those 101x multipliers on the reels gave you a sense of something big incoming, although I experienced a lot of wins on the lower end of the scale even with the huge multipliers, so I wouldn’t get too excited by those. It’s a nice feature though. But this would certainly suit you if you’re one who enjoys slots that aren’t so volatile.

But overall, while it looks nice, there are so many better options out there to satisfy your sweet tooth, which is why the 101 Candies slot gets a pretty average rating from me.

For sweet alternatives, check out Milkshake XXXtreme from NetEnt, which has some fun bonus features and 7,100 x max wins. But if you want high volatility and huge potential payouts, Yggdrasil’s Candyfinity slot could be the one for you. It boasts 38,387.3 x max wins and 46,656 ways to win.

Pros
  • Low to medium volatility
  • Fun bonus features
  • Multipliers up to 101x
Cons
  • Max win only 3,580 x bet
  • Gameplay is slow
