Take a trip to Candy Street and sample the sweet delights on offer in Sugar Rush, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. Tasty treats on offer here include a pick ’em round where prizes of up to 9,000 coins are on offer as well as a bonus feature that awards up to 20 free spins. Tuck in from between 20p and £100 per spin.
Like most confectionery themed slots, pastel shades dominate the visuals in Sugar Rush. Set against a brightly coloured street scene, the reels include lower value A, K and Q playing cards and a quartet of higher value sweeties. The one covered in hundreds and thousands is the most rewarding, paying 450 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
The gingerbread man is the game’s wild – it can land fully stacked on any reel and replaces all other symbols apart from the bonus and scatter.
Sugar Rush comes with a pair of features – land 3 of the cupcake bonus symbol on an active payline on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Bonus feature. Trigger the feature with 3 cakes and the prize will be up to 30 times your stake. 4 cakes and it’s up to 90 times your stake coins. A full 5 awards a very tasty offering of up to 150 times your stake.
The Gummy Bears symbol is the scatter – landing 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin trigger the Free Spins feature and with it 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
Sugar Rush may look sweet be we found it to be a fairly volatile slot – we went through lengthy spells where the cashier was rarely troubled other than going down. Both the pick me and free spins can deliver some tidy rewards when they do hit though. We’d put the variance in the high category.
The design here is rather good, staying just the right side of sickly sweet – we’d say that Sugar Rush is a slot that’s best enjoyed in small doses. It can deliver a quick hit courtesy of the features but you wouldn’t want to gorge for too long and overdo the saccharine. If you like the theme, I also recommend you play Lolly Land from NextGen Gaming/Chance Interactive.
