First impressions can sometimes be deceptive and the Sugar Trail slot from Quickspin is a case in point. This 5 reel, 40 payline slot features some of the cutesiest graphics we’ve ever seen. Look beyond the schmaltzy visuals though and there are some decent features on offer in this confectionery-themed title. Have a nibble from between 40p and £100 per spin.

Sugar Trail celebrates all things sweet with the reels packed full of items which your dentist would disapprove of. Look out for a variety of brightly coloured chocolate and candy symbols as well as the standard playing cards. The backdrop is a skyline full of ice creams and candy floss.

Look out too for the 3 Gummy Bears who are the keys to unlocking the bonus features. Find the purple King Gummy Bear on reels 1, 2 and 3 and you’ll trigger the Wild Candy Free Spins. You’ll be taken to the Sugar Trail which will spin to determine how many free spins you receive as well as the total amount of wilds.

The Wild Candy Free Spins includes Flying Wilds which float around the reels following each spin. Once active, they’ll remain in play for the duration of the feature, moving with every spin. It’s also possible to add extra spins if the +1 Free Spin symbol appears.

The green Queen Gummy Bear on reels 2, 3 and 4 activates the Sugar Lock Respins. Once again, a spin of the Sugar Trail will determine the number of spins and locked wilds, which will remain in position throughout the round. Finally there’s the Sugar Cash Bonus which is triggered by three blue Prince Gummy Bear symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5. Here you’ll be awarded a selection of cash bonus and multipliers.

The variance in Sugar Trail is on the low side so you should get plenty of play for your money. The cute imagery is a bit like Marmite in that you’ll either love it or hate it. If you can see beyond the graphics there are some quite good features lurking making Sugar Trail worth a closer look.

The payouts on offer in Sugar Trail may not be enormous but if fortune is smiling, the results can still be pretty sweet. If you like this kind of theme, Sunny Scoops by Thunderkick is worth playing. However, I also recommend Beowulf by Quickspin which is more volatile.
