Candy and Fruits Slot Review
Candy and Fruits is about as descriptive a title as you can get. This slot game brought to us by software developer Merkur gives us that authentic, old school slot machine feel. With that much said, we should probably also mention that as traditional as the slot game may look at first, there are still a few modern touches. For one, the graphics are of very decent quality. But we will reveal more further on in our review. The backdrop in this game is very simplistic, featuring a clean blue slate. And the symbols feature all the most recognizable slot machine fruit icons. They are cherries, lemons, oranges and plums. Following them are the higher in value grapes and watermelons. And finally, there’s the piece of clear candy.
The setup of Candy and Fruits features 5 reels and 3 rows, with a total number of 10 paylines. You will find that you can freely regulate the number of paylines you play with. This makes this game especially appealing for penny players, as stakes can be as low as 1p per spin. The maximum wager here £20 per spin and the RTP is at about 96%.
Candy and Fruits doesn’t exactly boast any fancy special features, such as freespins, pick-me games or other entertaining bonus rounds. In that sense, it’s very traditional and very old school. However, we did point out that this slot game does have more of a contemporary touch and it comes in the shape of a Wild symbol. The symbol itself depicts a basket full of all the rest of the symbols: the fruits and the candy. Ironically, this symbol substitutes for all of the above in order to help create winning combos. Thus, you can count on better winning opportunities.
Another feature that strays from the traditional slot machine gameplay is the Gamble feature. While many different providers and game manufacturers tend to include a Gamble feature in their slots, Merkur has taken things a step further.
This feature will offer you the option of selecting one of two side games. The first one will probably be more familiar to you, as it features a deck of playing cards. It’s a double or nothing game, the objective of which is to guess the color of the top card of the deck. It can be either red or black, so you will have a 50/50 chance of either doubling your prize or losing it altogether. You can multiply your winnings up to several times for a maximum of £140. The second option will provide you with a ladder game, where you will need to climb the ladder for bigger prizes.
Candy and Fruits is a perfect game for anyone, who wishes to stay far away from bonus rounds, freespins, etc. It’s a great slot for penny players, as well, thanks to the very low wager amounts. And the Gamble feature makes for a very nice touch, too.
