101 Candies Overview
NetEnt has just released a new online slot game called 101 Candies. Thus cluster pays slot comes with another food theme, which they have been using more often recently. We already seen games like Cupcakes and Milkshake XXXtreme. And now it’s candy time.
Of course, because of the candy theme, everything is very colorful. But I’m also not too sure what I’m looking at. Is it a candy machine?
The game uses 6 reels that are each 7 symbols high and uses cluster pays. Meaning that 5 or more of the same symbols, horizontally and or vertically connected, count as a winning combination. And on top of that NetEnt brought back their Avalanche feature. Which means that all winning symbols are removed and the rest of the symbols fall down. New symbols fall on top, creating the option for another win.
Besides normal candies and wrapped candies there is also a gumball machine, which acts as a scatter symbol. There are also wild symbols, but these come into play because of the Wild Conveyor Belt feature.
101 Candies comes with a maximum payout of 3.580 times bet and is a low to medium volatile slot game. Which are rare these days.
101 Candies Features
Wild Conveyor Feature
Above the reels you will find a conveyor belt with wild symbols. Each of these wild symbols comes with a multiplier of between x2 and x101.
During each avalanche, the leftmost wild symbols will move onto the reels into a random spot. All other wilds on the conveyor belt will move to the left and a new one is added to the right, most of the time a new wild will have a bigger multiplier.
During the base game the conveyor belt will reset after no more avalanches happen.
Feature Coins Symbols
After an avalanche a Feature Coin can appear on the reels. Each coin comes with its own feature. After the feature us triggered the coin is removed from the reels.
- Upgrade – will increase all multipliers on the conveyor belt by x1
- Destroy – will remove 5 of the 6 wild symbols from the conveyor belt
- Scramble – will shuffle all wilds on the conveyor belt
- Transform – will pick a random normal paying symbol and will change all these instances into another normal paying symbol
Free Spins Feature
3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 scatter symbols will award 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 free spins respectively.
During free spins the Conveyor Belt only resets once at the start of the free spins.
It also seems, but is not listed on the paytable, that Feature Coins appear a lot more often.
For 100 times your bet you are able to buy the free spins feature. This will award a minimum of 10 free spins.
101 Candies is a fun game, but somehow doesn’t feel like a NetEnt game. I’m guessing it’s because of the look. It’s just not that polished as I expect from NetEnt.
The features are nice and so is free spins. But I do notice that it is a low volatile game. A lot of small prizes and not that many big once during base spins.
Maybe this game isn’t for me. But I am very thankful that NetEnt decided to release a low volatile game. These are rare these days and are better suited for new players, in my opinion.
You will find 101 Candies at all trusted NetEnt casinos.
