Got a sweet tooth? Then get ready for a sugar rush on the slot from GameArt as Captain Candy is taking you on a tour of his charming realm, the home of sweet delights. Symbol transformations and expansions, as well as a free spins round, can lead to wins of up to 500 times your bet on every spin.
Captain Candy is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 25 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Get your sugar rush on desktop or mobile from 0.25 to 50 credits per spin. The RTP of this low to medium variance game is set at 96.03%.
The visuals will take you to a sweet fantasy world with candy canes, gummy bears and juicy fruits, as your sweet-toothed superhero spins five wafer reels for delicious wins. Vibrant colours and a chirpy soundtrack will bring an air of fairy tale to your slotting session.
Each low-value symbol corresponds in colour to a high-value symbol, which will pay a significant in the features. They start with the card royals – blue 10, yellow J, orange Q, red K and purple A – paying 1.6x to 1.8x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by blueberries, lemons, oranges, strawberries and cherries at the high end. Hit five on a line to win 2.4 to 12x your stake.
A trio of gummy bears is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols bar scatters. It will award the same wins as the cherries when five land on a pay line. Scatters are a trio of lollipops, appearing on reels one, three and five only.
The game has low volatility, hence, you will be relying on the two features to score sizeable wins. First up is the Double Symbol feature which is triggered in the base game when a high-value symbol appears on reel three marked with its low-value counterpart in the same colour. All colour-matching royals will then transform into the high-value symbol and expand to cover the entire reel. Note that any matching fruit symbols will not expand in the base game.
For example, a blueberry can appear marked with a blue 10, meaning that all other 10s in view will turn into blueberries for the current spin. All transformed card royals will then expand to cover the entire reel, providing a good chance to hit a full screen of premium symbols. Wins are evaluated and paid twice, before and after the transformation.
The main bonus feature on Captain Candy is the free spins round. Scatters landing anywhere on reels one, three and five in one spin will award 10 free spins which can be retriggered up to a total of 300. The Double Symbol feature will become more powerful as on top of the card royals expansions, all non-transformed matching fruit symbols will also expand to provide more potential to hit a full screen.
Captain Candy is a feel-good slot with a slightly too cartoonish look, which we at GMBLRS do not like as it could attract underage kids to gambling. That said, it plays rather well and the features hit often enough to get you some good wins. However, given the low volatility, don’t expect mega wins that often. Usually, you end up with 25x to 50x your bet from a free spins round, while on a lucky spin you could end up with up to 500x your stake.
