Get ready for a sugar rush and candied wins on the slot from Blueprint Gaming. Sweet Success Megaways is a sibling of Deal Or No Deal Megaways, created for countries where licencing deals for the TV show prohibit access to the original slot. Cascading reels, reactive wins, wild substitutions and mystery symbols provide solid Megaways action on the reels. Climb the Pick ‘N’ Mix Trail to enter one of the three levels of the bonus game where you can win free spins or cash prizes.
The following free spins round will be played in true Megaways style with mystery symbols and progressive multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 10,000 times your bet or 250,000 credits, whichever is reached first. The slot is not part of the Jackpot King network like the original, hence, there is no progressive jackpot included in the gameplay.
Sweet Success Megaways is a video slot with six reels, up to seven rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win, using the licensed Megaways engine from Big Time Gaming. You can get your sugar rush on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 10 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96.06%.
The number of ways is randomly determined for every spin with the game engine selecting between two and seven pay symbols for reels 1 & 6 as well as two to six pay symbols for reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Additionally, the game has an extra reel at the top of the game window with four positions, extending from reel two to five, where more symbols appear on every spin.
Wins are paid for adjacent symbols from left to right only. The symbols from a winning combination will then explode to make room for new symbols to drop into place, starting a chain reaction that will continue as long as a new winning combo occurs after a cascade.
A candied wonderland full of sweets and sugar-capped hills are in the background of the semi-translucent game window that is filled with even more sweets, chocolates bombs and candies. Even the spin button is a sugary swirl. The Pick ‘N’ Mix trail is displayed at the left of the reels while a dreamy soundtrack provides the audio to the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 0.8x to 1x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by sweets in green, blue and red colours as well as the slot logo. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 50x your stake.
A chocolate bomb is the wild symbol, appearing in the horizontal reel only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. An icon marked with ‘Super Sweet’ acts as the mystery symbol. There are no scatters in the base game but Bonus icons can appear in the horizontal reel during the free spins to award extra free spins.
If you ever played DOND Megaways, then you will most probably know what to expect on this Blueprint clone. The famous boxes from the original have been replaced with delicious candy while all other aspects and features have been kept. The first you will encounter in the base game is the Mystery Symbol feature. It can trigger at the start of any spin, adding up to 100 ‘Super Sweet’ icons to the reels. All landing in view will reveal a common symbol except wilds and scatters.
To get to the Pick N’ Mix bonus game you will need to climb up the Bonus Trail displayed on the left of the game window (desktop version). Every winning cascade within one spin sequence will advance you by one step with the lowest bonus game level triggering after the fourth cascade. Any progress that does not reach the bonus game level will be reset at the end of a spin sequence. Once you make it to the three bonus options on the trail, you will be entering the Pick ‘N’ Mix Bonus game according to which level you reached where you will play for cash prizes or free spins.
A total of 22 sweets will be scattered randomly on the screens, containing the prizes according to the trigger bonus game level. You will first have to pick one as your sweet to keep until the end, followed by five sweets you want to eliminate. After that, the game will make you a cash offer which you can take or leave.
Taking it will see you winning the displayed amount while leaving will give you another three picks to eliminate more of the remaining candies. The process is then repeated after every three picks until you are left with two candies, the one that you kept first and the last one remaining from the others. You can now decide to keep yours or change your mind and take the other one. Once done, the game will reveal your prize.
If you won free spins, then the game starts the round with an x1 win multiplier. During the feature, a random number of up to 100 Mystery Symbols are added to the reel strips. Any landing in view on a free spin will unveil a common pay symbol. Plus, the Progressive Multiplier will increase by x1 after each winning reaction, no limits. Landing three or four bonus candies in the horizontal reel in one free spin will award 5 and 10 extra free spins respectively.
Releasing a branded game always comes with country restrictions as the licence holders in the respective regions might not approve of having a slot available in their territory. In light of that, it is no surprise to see Blueprint creating a clone of DOND Megaways that can be played in any country where the game provider is active. Sweet Success Megaways has thus no real surprises to offer but it kept all the suspenseful aspects of the original and more importantly, the big win potential.
